Photo by @amivitale. TNC Kenya Program Director Munira Bashir (@bashir_munira) says, "Where there are #RangerDogs, the poachers stay away." Four-legged rangers are an elephant’s best friend and a secret weapon in the fight to #SaveElephants. They’re needed because elephants are in crisis: An estimated 25,000 are killed each year for their tusks to feed a global black market for ivory. Elephants move long distances every day, and areas that are patrolled by different anti-poaching teams are enormous. When a poaching incident occurs, the dogs can help recover the tusks and track down the poachers across long distances, hours or even days after they’ve left the scene. When poachers know that they are likely to get caught, poaching rates go down. Here, handler Alfred Langat trains @loisaba_conservancy’s resident bloodhound Machine in Laikipia, northern Kenya. National Dog Day is this coming Saturday and we need your help (and your pet's help, too!) to rally support for these canine heroes. Learn more and take action at nature.org/rangerdogs. Link in bio.

I'm continuously grateful to be able to venture beneath the waves for my work more than most folks. But then I meet people like 'Papa', who make me look like a seasoned landluber by comparison!⠀

Manasa Bulivou ('Papa') is one of the seasoned hands from Beqa Adventure Divers - home of the world famous Bull Shark Dive in Fiji. You will struggle to find a finer ambassador for sharks and our oceans. He was instrumental in turning Shark Reef into a Marine Reserve, and has spent countless hours introducing people from around the world to the Fijian sharks - changing perceptions daily around one of the ocean's most misunderstood creatures. Nowadays his role is in feeding the sprightly juvenile reef sharks found at the 5m edge of the reef, which can only be described as the best safety stop ever!⠀

Simply put, Papa is a frickin' badass. I can't wait to return to Fiji to see him, the BAD boys, and their sharky pals again sometime soon.

Anyone else been to Fiji to meet Papa and the team (plus their big, mahoosive sharks)? 😅

Take a drive into the unknown, there is a world of wonder out there to see. But apart from what you see, you will hear the sounds of the wilderness intensify as the sun dips below the horizon and night draws closer. It is a sensory journey visiting Namibia. 🙌🌄🇳🇦

Protecting wildlife means also being there to rescue them while threats to their life endure. JGI runs one of the largest chimp sanctuaries in Africa, Tchimpounga Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Center, supporting nearly 150 orphan chimps. Many of these chimps we have been able to move to island sites where they are free to roam in the forests once more. The continued care of these beautiful beings, who often come to us traumatized, sick or near death, requires continual effort, support and maintenance. Many of these chimps are victims of the illegal pet or entertainment trade. By saving chimps as they're orphaned and injured, and working with local communities on alternative sustainable livelihood options, as well as raising awareness and promoting environmental education, we're tackling this issue from every angle. Today, you can choose what kind of difference you'd like to make. For today, #tomorrowandbeyond , let's take action!

I love this photo as it reminds me of what we all are: blobs - and shapes - full of life within. No matter the colour, or the shape we're born in, we're beautiful unique individuals just trying to get by. We are all equally important. If you look at the photo, the man on his 4s doesn't even look human. We're not superior to anyone because we can stand up. 💚🍃✌(photo by @streetartglobe) #friendsnotfood #endspeciesism #uncaptive

I know something like this may be redundant, but it's also very necessary. The same image may be posted thousands if not millions of times over, but that's the point; this was a monumental event. Today, millions of people gathered from across the world to watch a moment of collision in the cosmos. As our source of light dwindled, the sound of cheering and fireworks filled the darkness. For a few moments, the hearts of the nation were connected to something bigger than ourselves. We were put in our place, as we witnessed something rarer than lightning and more magnificent than any storm. What matters now is not to let the wave of enthusiasm for space and science return to what it was before today. Our space programs need funding, our precious blue marble of a home needs to be saved through conservation, and we are the only way that change begins. I hope today's eclipse had a lasting impact on those that accept or deny the conditions we're currently living on, and that it may lead to further understanding on how to fix our issues. .

In recent years, conservation work and the commitment of various governments has halted the decline in global tiger numbers. But there’s a lot more work to do. 📷: unknown

It’s hard to imagine such impressive, powerful predators being vulnerable, but man-made climate change is making life tough for them – so their fate could be in our hands. We mustn’t let them down. 📷: @polar.posh

Did you know hummingbirds are the only bird that can fly backwards? Hummingbirds are one of the smallest birds in North America, beating their wings 50 to 80 times per second, which makes a humming noise hence their name. While there are many species of hummingbird the most common in Pennsylvania is the ruby-throated hummingbird, with the males having the red throat. These little guys have a life span of 3 to 5 years and even though they have bright irredentist feathers, they are excellent at camouflaging with their surroundings. This juvenile ruby-throated hummingbird came into our care after being dehydrated and unable to fly, but is now thriving in the clinic and expected to make a full recovery!

"Porcupine are known as longest living Rodentian mammal. The prominent use of them as a food source has contributed to significant declines in their population "

Great Horned Owls are able to turn their heads 270 degrees because they have 14 vertebrae in their neck, that's the double the amount that mammals have. #owlet #animalfacts #owls #owlsareawesome #wildlife #wildliferehabilitation #babyowls # sandypineswildlifecentre #tuesdaymotivation #protectwildlife #birdsofinstagram #raptors #owlsofinstagram
