As the Diageo Reserve team showcases some of their favorite cocktails around the country, I would be doing the team an injustice if I didn’t share these cocktails. One cocktail that touches my heart, and one that touches my funny bone. @bostonmixdrink always knew how to make a cocktail that would make me smile no matter the occasion. Whether it’s sitting at the bar receiving a taco cocktail paired with a “taco cloud” or a personal request for a good friend.... he never failed to go above and beyond. So from me to you...

Today’s endangered species is the Orangutan🐒 . . All 3 species of Orangutan are listed as critically endangered (Borneon, Sumatran and the recently identified Tapanuli) . . Orangutan in Malay means ‘person of the forest’, and these people of the forest are hugely threatened by deforestation and habitat loss🌴 . . Orangutans are gardeners of the forest, and are vital for spreading seeds and helping maintain a healthy, growing forest 🌱 . . #theconservationnetwork . . 📷 @international_animal_rescue

B is for Brazilian Merganser. Thr Brazilian Merganser is one of the most endangered waterfowl in the world and one of the most threatened birds in Americas. Its distribution is restricted to the center-south of Brazil, and parts of Paraguay and Argentina. There is an estimated fewer than 250 birds in the wild and currently 4 kept in captivity at 2 different Brazilian locations. The Brazilian Merganser inhabits clean rivers and streams, with rapids and still waters, bordered by forests and with an abundance of fish. The Brazilian Merganser is generally a silent bird, but may make some barking dog-like calls. The Brazilian Merganser is very territorial, defending large stretches of river and the land surrounding the fast-flowing water. It is recognized as a resident species that does not abandon the watercourses where it established its territory. They do not move or want to move once their habitats have disappeared. The birds need large territories and their habitat is fast dwindling. The Brazilian Merganser's main threats are habitat loss and degradation primarily due to human activities such as farming, mining, watershed degradation, erosion, and deforestation. #wwf #IUCN #brazilianmerganser #merganser #waterfowl #ducks #southamerica #Brazil #Paraguay #Argentina #animalawareness #endangeredbirds #endangeredspecies #wildlifeconservation #saveaspecies #abcconservation

There are a lot of things you can do to help the endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales, but one of the most impactful things is to reach out to your representatives or comment on a bill. However, these aren't neccisarily intuitive actions, which is why we dedicated a blog post to teach people how to comment on a bill.

A few springs back I had the fortune of stumbling upon a group of five critically endangered Whooping Cranes in the corn fields of central South Dakota. The birds were on their way north from wintering grounds in coastal Texas to their breeding grounds in Wood Buffalo National Park in Northern Alberta. It was a rare and wonderful sight and something I’ll never forget. The news for Whooping Cranes this year has been good. For the first time since the 1800’s there are more than 500 Whooping Cranes in the wild self-sustaining population that migrates between Texas and Wood Buffalo. In 1941 there were only 14 remaining and the species was one of the first to be protected under the endangered species act. Without this critical legislation we most certainly would have lost this species and many others. Thanks to it, more of us have the chance to hear their trumpeting calls and watch as they descend, legs dangling, to join meadowlarks and prairie-chickens dancing and singing under endless prairie skies. ... #whoopingcrane #endangeredspecies #migration @savingcranes #birdphotography #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #nanpapix #ilcp_photographers #eye_spy_birds #nuts_about_birds #your_best_birds #pocket_birds #naturelovers #kings_birds #birdsofinstagram #birdphotos #wildlifephotos #naturephoto #wildlifeplanet #animal_sultans #fotofanatics_nature #bird_brilliance #feather_perfection #global4nature #eye_spy_birds #nature_of_our_world #bestbirdshots #fortpierrenationalgrasslands

Mother love...⁣ Orangutan are solitary primate, they don't live in groups like the gorillas or the chimpanzees. The mother has to take care of her child alone. For approximately 8 years the baby will remain on her side ever time of the day in order to survive and learn the basic rules of the jungle. Without this time of education the young Orangutan is not able to survive alone into the forest. He will have to learn which fruits and leaf he can eat, where to find water on the trees, where to make his nest for a safe night, and what are the dangers for him. During this time her mother will provide food and safety for his beloved child like all the mothers do. Even if they canno't talk like us every time I see a mother and her child I see so much love in their look and attitude !⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #SaveRainforest #orangutan #pongabelii #StopPLTABatangToru #SaveTapanuliOrangutan #SumatraLastJungle #DamnTheDAM #primateconservation #saveorangutans #endangeredspecies #palmoilfree #stoppalmoil #wildlifephotography #savetheorangutan #conservationphotography #Rememberinggreatapes #socp #naturephotography #ragingextinction #naturelife #canonphoto #RedApe #YourShotPhotographer #wwffrance #wwf #ilcp #earth #wildlife #rainforest ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣

It never ends. A Russian man has been arrested after allegedly trying to smuggle a drugged baby orangutan out of Bali airport in his hand luggage. Andrei Zhestkov, 27, was stopped by Bali airport security, who noticed something suspicious while scanning his suitcase. They searched his bag and found the two-year-old sedated orangutan in a wooden basket, which had been wrapped in clothing. Mr Zhestkov claimed he had bought the orangutan for $4,200 and was trying to take it back to Russia as a pet, according to a spokesman from Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport. However, airport officials also found other animals in his luggage, including two tokay geckos and four chameleons. They also confiscated a number of syringes and sedation drugs. Mr Zhestkov could face time in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. Orangutans, among the most intelligent primates, are considered to be critically endangered. Their numbers in the wild continue to plummet due to habitat destruction, the illegal pet trade and poachers. — Photo + caption via @paulhiltonphoto #Justice4Earth #JusticeForEarth #Orangutan #CriticallyEndangered #EndangeredSpecies #PalmOil #ConflictPalmOil #PalmOilFree #Rainforest #Indonesia #GreatApe #Primate #Trafficking #AnimalTrafficking #BlackMarket

How far would you travel to see pandas? 🐼 ✈️ UK🇬🇧 —> Austria🇦🇹? 🤣 (At least it’s not as far as China! 😅) I went to Vienna Zoo, which was really awesome. At the very start of the day, I caught this panda walking around whilst his enclosure was being cleaned. As soon as it was done, he went back in and remained sat down eating bamboo all day! 🎋 . 🐼パンダを見るために、どこまで旅行しますか ✈️ イギリス🇬🇧からオーストリア🇦🇹まで❓ 私はウィーンの動物園に行きました。あの動物園はとても素晴らしいでした。朝で、囲壁の外の中で、このパンダは15分間ぐらい散歩していました。あれから、パンダはパンダの建物に行って、一日中座りました❗️ . #panda #bear #pandalife #cute #cutepanda #pandalove #naturephotography #wildlifeaddicts #wildlife #animalkingdom #animals #animalpolis #naturelovers #planetdiscovery #earthfocus #conservation #nature #naturegram #animal_captures #animalphotos #animalfanatics #endangeredspecies #pocket_animal #animal_sultans #exclusive_wildlife #endangeredspecies #animalsmood #animal_elite #discoverearth #majestic_wildlife_

The phrase "wildlife trade" likely brings to mind poachers and magnificent beasts like elephants or rhinos, but many pets are victims of wildlife smuggling as well. This is a yellow-crested cockatoo, confiscated in Indonesia where it was being smuggled in a water bottle to be sold as a pet. The critically endangered parrot is one of many animals smuggled from its natural habitat to be sold as a pet. Do some research to make sure any potential pets are sustainably (and legally) sourced.⁣

Photographer @nickbrandtphotography has described our rapidly changing planet as an ‘environmental Armageddon.’ His latest work, ‘This Empty World’, addresses the rapid encroachment of human activity on the East African landscape and its effect on both people and animals. — The message behind ‘This Empty World’ is captured perfectly by @paula_kahumbu of @wildlifedirect who says, ‘Nick Brandt has captured in art, what our minds have could not have imagined … These images vividly remind us that a future without our wildlife and the options that they bring is a desperately poor one.’ — Image: CONSTRUCTION TRENCH WITH JACKAL © Nick Brandt — #contemporaryart #nickbrandtphotography #nickbrandt #photography #thisemptyworld #environmentalphotography #ecosystem #artphotography #endangeredspecies

Day 37 - Elephant Sanctuary 🐘 🇹🇭: there are two very different sides to elephants in Thailand. There’s dozens of amazing sanctuaries where locals and volunteers from all over the world dedicate their lives to rescuing & protecting this beautiful animal. At these sanctuaries, the elephants are given a natural environment where they can roam free and interact with their kind, just as they would in the wild - until being released after they’re rehabilitated (real MVPs 🙏🏻). . The other side is much darker. At these places, elephants are chained, kept in close quarters, and forced to carry around oblivious tourists who are more concerned with getting likes from their equally oblivious friends & family; all ignorant to the fact that their elephant ride is directly funding and leading to the endangerment of, quite literally, the most sacred animal in Asia. . Educate yoself - don’t be an asshole. Cool? Cool. 🐘👍🏻 #liveelevated.

No. 125 of #RealandEndangered is the Mekong giant catfish, which occur in the lower half of the Mekong River system, in Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. These behemoths instantly caught my attention and here are a few reasons why: 1. They are the world’s largest scaleless freshwater fish. They can grow up to 10 feet (3 meters) long and weigh up to 650 pounds (300 kilograms). 2. Juveniles have the characteristic catfish barbels (“whiskers”), however these shrink as the fish ages. 3. They fall into the shark catfish family. 4. They are toothless herbivores (diet consists of plants and algae). 5. This species is highly migratory and require large stretches of river. Since 2003, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature lists them as "critically endangered.” It is estimated that their population has dropped by 95% over the last century. Threats include overfishing, damming of tributaries, habitat loss and degradation (including destruction of spawning and breeding ground), and siltation. The species is listed on CITES Appendix I and it is illegal to harvest them in Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. In Thailand, some fishers have even pledged to stop catching the catfish. They also occur in protected areas, however, as with other species, enforcing the laws continues to be an issue, especially with bycatch. There has been some success in captive breeding, resulting in the release of 10,000 individuals into the wild. In 2013 a pilot project to track their migration patterns was launched. Then in 2017, they turned to environmental DNA (eDNA) techniques to determine specific areas they fish have passed through.

Rachel McRobb, Dr. Mwamba Sichande and the @conservationsouthluangwa team are saving this buffalo by removing an illegal snare wire from around his neck. . Snare wires are usually not intended to kill buffalo as they are generally used to trap impala for illegal bushmeat trade but these traps are scattered all over wildlife parks so no animals are safe. Without a qualified team in the area to dart the buffalo, remove the wire and treat the wound, all wildlife would be at a much greater risk than they already are. It is critical that we continue to support @conservationsouthluangwa and Dr. Sichande to be able to continue doing the amazing work they do.

This week is Lobo Week, a week designated to raise awareness of the critically endangered Mexican wolf (AKA the "Lobo") and the recovery efforts to save the species. This year's Lobo Week marks the 21st anniversary of the re-introduction of the Mexican wolf back to the wild. With only 114 Mexican wolves in the wild in the US and 30 in Mexico, continued recovery efforts are crucial to the survival of this species. #loboweek #mexicanwolf #wolf #endangeredspecies #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography #fossilrim #fossilrimwildlifecenter #education

Alligators are just sharp-toothed frogs try to change my mind. But who doesn’t love American Alligators (Alligator mississippiensis )American Alligators back in the 40’s were almost hunted to extinction thankfully they were labeled a protected species and now they’re are around 1 million in Florida alone. Compared to crocodiles most alligators are pretty mellow however, this doesn’t mean you should go out and pet or feed wild alligators. Feeding wild ones is illegal. They’re still wild animals and are way different compared to the ones in captivity.

Hang in there!! One of the cheeky chappies at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation centre, where their aim is always to help these guys get back into the wild where they belong. The sanctuary is not enclosed so they are free to come and go as they please. They are also fed a very bland diet of mainly bananas and sugar cane to encourage them to go and forage for themselves. However, these northern Bornean orangutans are the most endangered with 1,500 or so remaining. Orangutan’s in whole only around 100,000 left so whilst they are ‘hanging in there’ it’s up to us in charge of their fate. Hopefully the Malaysian government can see the appeal of keeping these peeps safe and not just their profits safe from palm oil plantations destroying these guys habitats...
