#Repost from @tuskntrunk ... "These works of art portray the tragedy of our ego as a species. How we have forgotten the importance of coexisting and how disconnected we are from nature. We see so little raw nature that we are often stunned in the moment by its magnificence that our minds stray from empathy; distracted, we miss the fear and pain behind their eyes. These giants are not where they want to be.

Everyone meet Frankie the fox, from Hope for Wildlife! Frankie was hit by a car and, as a result, nearly lost her hearing and eyesight entirely. She can't be released, so now she's used for education and outreach to the public. Truly a unique and special lady to be working with.

Did you know that Dr Seuss' original print of the Lorax even commented on the condition of Lake Erie. Back when this was published Lake Erie had a reputation for it's horrible water quality and was even declared dead. ⁣ ⁣ Due to conservation efforts the line was removed from the book as the lake became healthier. However as we all know the problem hasn't been fully solved.⁣ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Pks4oudb3w⁣ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMwQaHtK904⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #Green #ecofriendly #environmental #conservation #coastalcentre #greatlakes #lakehuron #canada #climatechange #climateaction #canada #learning #earth #lorax #drseuss #letitgrow #lakeerie #erie

This Amazonian forest in the southeast of Colombia forms part of Chiribiquete National Park, the biggest tropical national park in the world, and declared UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2018. It is home to countless mammals, reptiles and amphibians, birds and indigenous tribes, a tropical paradise for wildlife and humans alike and one of the last great wildernesses on earth. As guerilla activity has stalled in Guaviare, mining and cattle farming are on the rise. The virgin forests are in danger of fire clearances, deforestation and mining. I think of the inhabitants, the cute titi monkeys, the stunning scarlet macaws, the human-like wooler monkeys, the friendly and playful river dolphins and the fascinating tapirs we have seen on our trip here and I have to fight the tears. This world does not need us. It takes care of itself. It even took care of us before we decided to stop listening. I wish I could add some hopeful conclusion but it ain lookin very good, y'all. Mumma Earth is dying one cut tree, one extinct species, one polluted liter of water and one dried out river at a time. #forests #internationaldayoftheforest #worldforestday #conservation #govegan #wildlife #colombia #southamerica #awareness #ecotours #greenworld #blueplanet #planetearth

If you climbed to the height of land above this bear, you would see @whistlerblackcomb in the view. I had around 8 or 9 grizzlies hit this salt lick one spring. This is as well basically ‘over the hill’ from the house. There are so many grizzlies in BC it’s silly. In the first year of the hunt closure, more grizzlies were destroyed and dumped in the garbage then would have been legally harvested in one hunting season. Had those bears been harvested legally instead, close to $3,000,000.00 would have come into BC with much of it going directly to grizzly conservation. Please become informed before you back some kind of conservation group. The majority of them take your money, spend zero time in remote areas helping or monitoring game. They as well encourage closures of legal hunting. These closures instantly stop important conservation dollars meant for the species they ‘think’ they care about. 100% of these groups as well have no back up plan or concern to replace the conservation revenue they stop. They only use their funds ( your money) to purchase marketing to obtain MORE of your money. #getinformed #conservation #huntingishealthy #grizzlybear bl #blackbear #howtohunt

At the hatchery we band our adult lobsters to prevent them hurting each other or the staff and visitors! Don't worry, the bands don't hurt or prevent the lobsters going about their daily business! They are still able to use their smaller, harmless, claws to forage and eat. Bands are cut off before releasing the lobsters back into the Firth. . . . . . . . #conservation #sustainably #SaveOurSeas #SponsorALobster #visitscotland #explore #travel #capture #breed #release #wildlife #photography #scotland #spring

Have you seen we have a collaboration with our friends at @hojanueva ? This limited edition sweatshirt showcases the beautiful Khan, Hoja Nueva's first ocelot they worked with for a year to reintroduce to the Las Piedras River in Peru. Khan was brutally killed by a poacher's shotgun trap on the 5th of May of 2017, and is dearly missed. This act was committed on protected conservation lands, with a very illegal weapon - something that occurs far too often in the Amazon and throughout the world. 50% of the sale from this sweatshirt will be donated back to Hoja Nueva's Project ReWild, which will save hundreds of wild animals like Khan. Funds will specifically go to the building of wild jungle enclosures for current and future animals, as well as their food and care-taking. Each garment comes with a minizine that helps explain the issue you are wearing, why it is important and the little everyday things you can do to help the cause. The Khanservation sweatshirt is 100% Organic and made in a Fairwear Foundation certified factory in Bangladesh. The embroidery is done by a local business in Oxford.

Everything is getting so green! Hello Spring! 💚🌱🍃🌳 One of the early spring flowers you might have seen pop up recently is this one, a wood anemone (i can’t be the only one who struggles to say that right?! 😂). Only occurring in ancient areas of woodland, it’s an indicator of the age of a woods, and an important early food course for pollinators who live there 🐝 Find your local woods to see these, I spotted this one in @butepark ! 🏰 #WildCardiff

When investigating and reporting on conservation issues, it’s easy to fixate on the negative aspects. Sometimes that’s important to convey the depth and challenges of a particular problem. It can, however,become disheartening both as the writer and for readers when all of the content seems gloomy and disparaging. I’m going to make a greater effort to focus on some positive changes that may serve as models for other current issues. . These two beautiful creatures are river otters, which can seem confusing since this pair live in and near the ocean. Unlike sea otters, river otters have fully articulated rear feet that allows them to easily walk and navigate on land. River otters thrive both on the coast and in the interior of British Columbia, residing in lakes, streams, wetlands, and the coastal seas. Sea otters, while previously exterminated from the coast of B.C., are making a remarkable comeback since their reintroduction between 1969-72. Their return has helped to restore balance to the marine ecosystem as they feast on sea urchins who are capable of rapidly decimating the kelp forests that grow in the Pacific waters. Where sea otters have colonized the kelp has returned, which in turn provides coverage for numerous species of fish. . Although the excessive harvesting of sea otters once led to their demise, the simple act of relocating 89 otters has enable to population to return to approximately 1500 at present. In time it’s expected that they will once again populate the entire coastline of the province, restoring a piece once thought lost.. .

The Mayan fountain of youth? Or something far more sinister... For the Mayans the cenotes were open to the "infra-world", a mouth to communicate with the gods. If these wells were primarily precious reserves of water they became sacrificial wells. During certain ceremonies, young people were covered with heavy gold ornaments and thrown into the cenote as sacrifice to the gods. You can certainly feel the water pulling you down when you are in this place, and I'm a pretty strong swimmer. Some say the spirit of the high priest are still here... . . . #mayan #history #travel #explore #spiritual #good #evil #fountain #of #youth #sacrifice #gods #ig #photo #samsung #galaxynote #water #fresh #passport #cave #diving #padi #swim #mexico #l4l #eco #green #conservation

Elephants are frequently blamed for decline of marula populations. Though they do interact with adult trees in ways that can lead to their death by making them more susceptible to fire and insect pests-- and in some cases, causing direct mortality, much of the decline in marula populations can be attributed to lack of new trees into the populations. This is characterized by a missing size class of intermediately sized trees and a scarcity of seedlings. This part of the equation is very poorly understood as many species as well as spatial, temporal, and environmental factors likely play a role in influencing successful recruitment. One of the main focuses of our research is to track the abundance and survival of marula seedlings in our research sites. These seedlings and young trees are exceptionally scarce and when we do find them, they usually exhibit damage. This damage is characterized by missing bark, consistent with gnawing rodents, as well as evidence of browsing and missing leaves. #wildlife #conservation #wildlifeconservation #wildlifemanagement #biology #ecology #botany #marula #sclerocarya #sclerocaryabirrea #rodents #rodentia #mammals #elephant #elephants #loxodontaafricana #southafrica #limpopo #balule #greaterkruger #kruger #krugernationalpark #krugerapnr

Snow is melting from the banks of Flint Creek and Rock Creek. In Granite County, MT we are engaged in partnership with local government, landowners, and the watershed group on several stream projects. Mercury contamination cleanup from mining, upgrades to irrigation diversion infrastructure, and fish screen installations on irrigation ditches are some examples of our voluntary, collaborative approach to protect and restore cold, clean water in the area.
