#repost @loisaba_conservancy ・・・ Some of our guests had unusual encounter yesterday of a cheetah climbing a tree! Although cheetahs are members of the cat family, they have dog-like non-retractable claws. This trait has evolved to enable them to gain traction as they are chasing prey and helps cheetahs reach speeds of up to 120km/h, but also limits their tree climbing ability. Great photos by one of our guides, Moses! #cheetah #bigcat ——————————————————————— Staying at @elewanacollection’s Loisaba Tented Camp and Loisaba Star Beds helps ensure @Loisaba_Conservancy remains a catalyst for conservation, wildlife research and community development. ——————————————————————— Loisaba’s mission is to protect and enhance critical wildlife diversity, abundance and habitat in the landscape, which sits on the western edge of one of Kenya’s most important elephant movement corridors.

Black caiman conservation project (Melanosuchus niger https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_caiman)) . We have safed 12 eggs that have hatched a month ago. We have built a little open terrarium near our lodge to feed them! Humans have been hunting black caimans for leather or meat. This species was classified as Endangered in the 1970s due to the high demand for its well-marked skin. This black caiman conservation project is a pioneering effort in Peru. Please support us! #peru #caiman #conservation #iquitos #reptile #reptil #predator #research #wilderness

My Monday mood... 😬 _ ➡️ Repost @africanparksnetwork - Meet Watson! He’s a rare and pre-historic looking shoebill stork that we rescued from the wildlife trade last September. He arrived at Bangweulu Wetlands in Zambia after he was confiscated from a wildlife trafficker. After many months of care from our team on the ground, he has been successfully released and is fishing all on his own! Shoebill chicks are often stolen for sale into the international wildlife trade, many of the chicks die en route and never reach their destination. Left uncontrolled, this trade severely threatens the survival of this long-lived and slow-breeding species. We are working with communities and individuals whom we employ as ‘Shoebill Guards’ who are the custodians of these birds, who are protecting and ensuring the survival of this species. Help us continue our work of saving shoebills and preventing the illegal trade by donating today – link in bio @africanparksnetwork. @therustymokoro #africanparks #rarebirds #bangweulu #wetland #conservation #shoebill #rescue

Reposted from @the_barefootwalker - Curious fact: This baby rays look like tiny aliens stuffed in a Ravioli 😍💙 Scientists believe human limbs evolved from the gills of rays and sharks thanks to a gene named after Sonic the Hedgehog. The discovery comes from analysis of skate, a cartilaginous fish which has much in common with sharks and rays. Limbs, like gills, grow thanks to a vital protein known as the 'Sonic Hedgehoc Gene " The new discovery backs up a theory suggested 138 years ago that legs and arms evolved from prehistoric fish gills. .

'Mothers of Nature' Jeyarasa Mary Jakkulin tends to nets among the mangrove forest, Vedathalthivu, Mannar, Sri Lanka. . Part of a mangrove conservation project, Jeyarasa protects the mangrove forest by her home as well as educating others in her community about the importance of these unique ecosystems. In return for watching over the forest she has been granted a micro-loan to start her own business by NGO Sudeesa. Sudeesa run a 5 day training course that teaches valuable business skills as well as how to protect the mangrove forest. . Like many women in Sri Lanka Jeyarasa is a widow. Civil war and the 2004 tsunami has meant thousands of women nationwide have become their families sole provider. . The programme empowers the women and encourages them to not only provide for their families but to flourish. . The island nation’s mangrove forest and lagoon systems are breeding grounds for fish and provide vital food and jobs to coastal populations. They sequester up to 5 times more carbon than other tropical forest and provide natural protection from storms and tsunami. #mothersofnature #mangroves #conservation #environment #portraitphotography #documentaryphotography #canon #1dxmarkii #sigma35mmart #srilanka #fishers

🐙 The Giant Pacific Octopus is the largest species of octopods with an arm span of up to 16 feet. Found throughout the Pacific Ocean, they live in dens or lairs, under boulders, rock crevices or caves. The octopus is extremely intelligent and uses its well-developed sense of sight to learn through observation. Fun fact: The record weight for this octopus is 600 pounds! 📸 @bthemusic

A bumblebee flaps its wings 200 times per second and have extremely fast metabolisms, so they have to eat almost continuously. “A bumblebee with a full stomach is only ever about 40 minutes from starvation,” as Dave Goulson puts it, a scientist who founded a conservation trust to support bumblebee populations and author of A Sting in the Tale: My Adventures with Bumblebees. #bumblebee #entomolgy #chasingbugs #bugsbugsbugs #bugslife #ilovebugs #insects #insectsarecool #bumblebees #kitchensink #steel #stsinlesssteel #silver #insects #bugsofinstagram #insectsofinstagram #macroworld #macro #macrophotography #macro_brillance #macro_vision #top_macro #macro_kings #macro_perfection #tinyhairs #wings #fuzzy #fuzzybug #conservation #insectconservation

Spent the weekend at @guadalupe_river_tu (GRTU) Youth Trout Camp with some great kids, parents, volunteers, speakers and guides.

I had the most incredible experience of my life last night that reached so far inside and touched my soul, gave me a feeling so far beyond physical, and broke through and far far beyond the human aspect of life. I don't want to try to give details, or attempt to describe a spiritual experience through mere physical words. I couldn't if I tried. In this case, Words, Pictures or videos will never possess the ability to transcend the physical and give to all of you what I have received. As much as I would love to pour this into each of you through my words, I know that I can't. But I wish to leave you with one statement- The world around you is only as pure as the soul within you. ----------------------- #meditate #writing #kauai #oahu #maui #hawaii #hawaiianspirit #aloha #modeling #model #photoshoot #love #instagood #wilhelmina #portraitphotography #portrait #headshot #gym #enlightenment #consciousness #environment #conservation #wildlife

Probably Not The Best Idea to be Halfway Out The Cage!🦈 Video courtesy of @bbcearth FOLLOW us at @creatures_of_the_deep_ for more like this! Some amazing footage of an approximately 10 foot male Great White around the cage! The Males of shark species, in contrast to mammals, tend to be smaller than their Females counterparts. Females tend to be 15-16 feet, while Males average 11-13. It is not entirely understood the evolutionary purpose of this dimorphism, but our best hypothesis is that the females require the extra size for both carrying their young when pregnant, and to be able to both hunt and defend better when carrying. The Female of the species is more deadly than the Male!

This is the Nilgiri Langur! They are also called the hooded leaf monkey. Native to south India, these monkeys are critically seed dispersers. Consuming 115 different types of plants, vines, and trees, Nilgiri Langurs disperse more seeds than any other primate in the region. They are threatened by poaching for traditional medicines, drum skins, and the pet trade, plus fires and habitat loss.

Recently deceased female Western Lowland Gorilla Lena in the #gorillarainforest in Dublin Zoo’s ( @dublinzoo_official ) #africanplains. All species of gorilla are herbivorous. Most gorillas are a specialized type of herbivore called a folivore. In zoology, a folivore is a herbivore that specializes in eating leaves. Traditionally, all gorillas were classified as folivores, yet 15 years of data on western lowland gorillas show their diet to contain large quantities of foliage and fruit. Because of their varied vegetarian diet their jaws feature large muscles along with broad and strong teeth. Among these teeth are strong sets of frontal canines and large molars in the back of the mouth for grinding fruits and vegetables. #westernlowlandgorilla#gorilla#lena#gorillarainforest#africanplains#dublinzoo#thezoo#phoenixpark#dublin#discoverdublin#discoverireland#savegorillas#conservation#lensbible#canoneos1300d#danielmoranphotography

“It’s overwhelming because some of these seeds have no more people,” Angela Ferguson, a Traditional Corn Grower from the Onondaga Nation, recently told IC. “All their people are extinct, wiped out, or absorbed into other tribes. But the food lived on.” Some varieties of the corn lining the shelves are the last of their kind on Earth. Ferguson and others are working to grow the seeds out and get them back to their own people. ⠀ ⠀ Read more in this third installment of our twelve-part series, "Food as Medicine" https://buff.ly/2CC4yWy⠀ ⠀ #foodsovereignty #foodasmedicine #traditionalfood #onondaga #conservation #foodsecurity

This first post is a bucket list species. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ Seeing any species of the Atelopus genus had been on my bucket list for a while. This genus of true toads is commonly known as harlequin toads or stubfoot toads. They occur in Central and South America, ranging as far north as Costa Rica and as far south as Bolivia. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Atelopus genus have experienced huge population declines and extinctions caused by the amphibian chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd). At some places, like Monteverde (Costa Rica), they were abundant thirty years ago and are now gone. At some places they are being rediscovered and at some other places they might be extinct. Hopefully this global problem will be solved before it is too late!
Suriname is not affected by Bd.. Hopefully it will stay like this!
Because Suriname is not affected I could finally see an Atelopus in the wild. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We found multiple individuals of Hoogmoed Harlequin Toad (Atelopus hoogmoedi). This photogenic individual had a very contagious smile on the back of the head.

S. Karunawathi Veransolai, Trincomalee. Grandmother and mother of four, she operates a business where she rents a small boat and fishing equipment to local fishers. She has been able to invest in this equipment by being part of Sudeesa's conservation project and obtaining a micro-loan from the NGO. . In the past she has had to flee her home and go to India as a refugee in 1985 & 1988 where she lived in a refugee camp due to heavy civil war fighting in the region. . Previously she also had to leave her home to escape daily forms of domestic violence of her then alcoholic husband. She returned to the house in 1992. . Then in 2004 while looking after her 18 month old grandson the Indian Ocean Earthquake and subsequent tsunami hit. She sustained minor injuries but her grandson was washed away and never found. Her home was also badly damaged. She is still slowly rebuilding the house with large sections of the roof still to be fixed. Her business allows her to do so as well as pay for day to day essentials. . She feels passionately about educating her community and others about the importance of the Mangrove Forest. #shotoftheday #picoftheday #mothersofnature #mangroves #conservation #canon #documentary #docphoto #documentaryphotography #photography
