You read about it, you watch documentaries, but the harsh reality only hits when you see it in real life. Scientists estimate 100 million sharks are removed from the ocean and finned alive every year to make shark-fin soup, a delicacy in Asian countries. Don't let your curiosity get the best of you. As Captain Paul Watson says: "If the ocean dies, we die. #sharkfin #sharkfinsoup #racingextinction
Double tap to join us in wishing our founder @shawnheinrichs a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! 🎉💙 Shawn is truly one of the most passionate, dedicated, and creative activists this world has ever seen. We are lucky to have him on our team. Cheers to another year being a voice for the voiceless! #turningthetide #racingextinction
❤️🐘 An adorable Moyo back in 2015 walking with friend Kim the sheep at Zimbabwe Elephant Nursery @wildislife_zen ❤️🐘🐑 Moyo was a little peeved that friend Kim was in the lead. In social hierarchy, elephants will not allow anyone below them on a social level to take the lead. Learning social hierarchy is very important for their survival in the wild.
Of the 2000 people surveyed in the UK by the WWF, only 8% could correctly identify a pangolin when shown a photo. This is not unusual. The most trafficked mammal in the world is also one most people have never heard of. . Up to 2.7 million pangolins are being killed every year, with the most conservative estimate being 400,000 a year. . Even though their scales are made up of keratin—the same protein that makes up our hair and fingernails—they are believed to hold medicinal value, and thus are trafficked for their use in traditional medicine. Pangolin meat is also considered a delicacy in China and Vietnam. #Repost @thewcs says - Wildlife crime is a serious crime and should be treated as such. Its negative impacts on fragile communities are often just as severe as weapons, narcotics, or even human trafficking. It's also decimating species like the pangolin. This from a 2015 seizure on Sumatra, when authorities found five tons of frozen pangolins, 77 kilograms of pangolin scales, and 96 live pangolins, including this one in a poultry cage. #endwildlifecrime . . #pangolin #outrageous #wildlifetrafficking #illegal #london #sumatra #arrest #conservation #lawenforcement #iwt2018 #elephants #rhinos #stoppoaching #stopkilling #saveleuserecosystem #wildlifeasia #wildaid #racingextinction #beforetheflood #sumatra #sharks #tigershark #saveoursharks #nosharkcull #cites #vietnam #poaching #china
Bringing you all a #repost today from our friends at @erindinamibia. Together, we can all help the cheetah win the race against extinction. 🐱 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ・・・ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Powerful but vulnerable. From habitat loss to conflict with local farmers, cheetahs in Namibia don't have an easy time. But we are trying to change that here at Erindi, by teaming up with the @ccfcheetah to rehabilitate and provide a safe home for these beautiful big cats within the reserve. Thank you @pie_aerts for the incredible capture.
#Repost @paulhiltonphoto ・・・ Another critically endangered Sumatran orangutan has been rescued. Saba is a 23 year old pregnant female that had been shot on an old rubber plantation that is soon going to be converted to palm oil. @orangutaninformationcentre team had to conduct the rescue before the situation became critical for her safety. All her vitals were checked and later released without any complications, Leuser Ecosystem, Sumatra, Indonesia. The Leuser is under many threats and we need your help to sign the petition to stop the Tampur Dam from going ahead, link in my bio @haka_sumatra @katiecleary11 @wildlifeasia @rainforestactionnetwork @racingextinction @socp.official @peace_4animals @wiiiiza #lovetheleuser #cutconflictpalmoil #socp

We've lost 18 southern resident killer whales in 5 years. We can't keep beating around the bush, creating band-aid actions, and taking wrong actions which the scientists and researchers (who have spend over 40 years studying these whales) are against... or we will see this population go extinct before our eyes. . We don't want a seal culling. We don't want SeaWorld in charge of the southern residents recovery plan when they are the reason 1/3 was taken away from the Salish Sea in the 70s. We don't want to be kept in the dark about actions being taken. More than ever, the world is intently watching this chaos unravel. Repeatedly, we've all asked for the 4 lower snake river dams to be breached in 2018. . Meanwhile the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Bonneville Power Administration, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation are just evaluating different options for operating the snake river dams and will conclude a decision only in 2021. It will be too late by then. Especially when the options have already been outlined in the 2002 environmental impact statement. . Meanwhile NOAA claims "these whales seem to be finding enough food." .

There are oviparous (egg-laying) species and viviparous (live-bearing) species of sharks. Oviparous species lay eggs that develop and hatch outside the mother’s body with no parental care after the eggs are laid. The embryos are nourished by a yolk-sac inside the egg capsule. Viviparous species can be separated into two categories: placental (having a placenta, or true connection between maternal and embryonic tissue), or aplacental (lacking a placenta). Among the aplacental species, there are those whose embryos rely primarily on a yolk-sac for nutrition during gestation and those that consume yolk-filled, unfertilized egg capsules (oophagy). There is even one species, the sandtiger (Carcharias taurus), in which the two largest embryos that were fertilized first, consume the other embryos of the litter (adelphophagy). It has also been suggested that the young of some viviparous species may be nourished by uterine secretions during some part of gestation, but this has not been conclusively documented. There is no parental care after birth among viviparous sharks. *Aplacental viviparity can also be described as ovoviviparity, although that term is rarely used today. #sharks #wildaware #animals #animalrights #wildlife #endangered #vegan #racingextinction #extinction #oceans #oceancreatures

Found only in one small patch of Earth, The Conception Bank Silver Boa was one of the rarest and extremely endangered snake species during the time of its discovery in 2015. R. Graham Reynolds recalled that it ‘shined like metal’ as it gracefully climbed a tree in The Conception Island National Park, the only place where it is found on the planet. This shiny serpent likely numbers only a thousand individuals in this remote habitat, completely disconnected from all other Bahamian islands. Unlike its other relative, The Silver Boa spends most of its time in trees feeding on birds, and got its name from its unique coloration and from the Silver Palm tree in which it was first spotted. The greatest threat to this remarkable snake are natural disasters, being an island endemic, its whole population can be wiped out from a major hurricane. There are also feral cats present on the island that pose a direct threat, since they are not native predators and poaching for the illegal pet trade. However the silver lining of this situation is that the entire Conception Cay and its surrounding waters became fully protected as a National Park in 1964. #ExploreYourPark
Just back from #Telašćica in Croatia for the #MedPAN network regional training workshop on governance practices for the management of #SmallScaleFisheries .

💦@hannahmermaid choreographed a ballroom dance 30 feet deep on the ocean floor at night with @davidlangloiss and the graceful Mobula Rays (commonly referred to as Devil Rays), a harmless family of rays now under severe threat by unsustainable trade in their body parts.😕 @shawnheinrichs filmed the incredible feat, and created the short film 'Dance with Devil Rays' to help get these mini-mantas on the U.N. protected list!🙏❤️ 🎵🎶 Music by @oneiga feat. @spiritofkalibri La Paz, Mexico, is one of the only destinations in the world where one can dive at night with Mobula Rays. Like their larger cousins the Manta Rays, Mobula Rays offer awesome potential as a tourist attraction, yet these rays are being slaughtered across the oceans primarily for their gills that are used as a purported health tonic in Asia. Over-exploitation is now driving them toward extinction. Every three years, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (@CITES ), a United Nations body of some 180 member countries, meets to decide if certain species receive international protection. In September 2016, CITES was hosted in Johannesburg, South Africa, and a proposal to list Mobula Rays on Appendix 2 was put to vote. With time running out for Mobula Rays, we created ‘Dance with Devil Rays’ to highlight how interactive, charismatic and vulnerable these “little mantas” are, and to inspire nations to afford them the critical protection they deserve.

It’s #WorldFoodDay . CCF operates from the principle that the key to securing a future for the cheetah is to secure the livelihoods of the human communities that live alongside the cheetah. Consequently, CCF is engaging in efforts to promote increased prosperity for the humans living in cheetah country through livelihood development. The Dancing Goat Creamery produces and sells dairy products made from CCF’s goat milk, thereby demonstrating to small livestock farmers a viable source of supplemental income that can make their farms more prosperous. #WFD2018 ********** #CCF #cheetahconservationfund #cheetahconservationfundUK #cheetah #ccfcheetahUK #bigcat #endextinction #racingextinction #endangered #endangeredspecies #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #research #education
It would have been impossible to carry out my #hoodedgrebephotoproject without the amazing floating hide of @mrjangear. Why? Because they are waterbirds, and you must get inside their habitat and at their level, in order to get pictures of their most intimate behaviors, without disturbing them. This hide is, to the best of my knowledge, the only inflatable one on the market, and therefore the only one that is possible to bring on an airplane without crazy expenses. It is robust and strong, giving me the right feel and safety to bring my photo equipment inside windy Patagonian lakes.

Repost @abolitionist_vegan_peacemaker ・・・ You are against mass extinction? Then go vegan! Better for the Earth, certainly better for all animals, (human or not), and the morally right thing to do. Start at www.HowDoIGoVegan.com • “Livestock production accounts for 70 percent of all agricultural land and 30 percent of the land surface of the planet. The livestock sector is one of the top three contributors to the most serious environmental problems, including water-quality degradation, at every scale from local to global (FAO, 2006).” • 🌱 Be morally consistent.

Based on what you see in the supermarket aisle, you could be mistaken for thinking that a salmons destiny is to end up in a bagel with some cream cheese. - While in British Columbia we are discovering that salmon play a critical role in a complex ecosystem, and dams have blocked their path to ancestral spawning grounds to devastating effects. - This playing with nature or sometimes referred to as “playing with god” approach to urban growth is causing the extinction of wildlife across the world and in the Salish Sea it’s meant a dramatic decline of chinook salmon which are the natural diet of the resident killer whales. - So stand with us in our international call to breach the dams in 2018 and save the remaining 74 orcas. Not only do we care about this magnificent species...we care about the bears, the salmon and all life on this planet. - @coextinctionfilm photo by @eikojonesphotography #wearetheorca #yogafororcas #coextinction #yogafornature

The Namibia University of Science and Technology - NUST visited CCF to learn about our environmental education and community outreach programs. For Arbor Day, they donated 9 different indigenous trees seedlings, one of which (scientifically known as Searsia lancea) we planted together at the Centre. Matti, CCF's Senior Ecologist and Forest Steward, challenged everyone to plant a tree for every birthday they celebrate from that day forward. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you up for the challenge? 🐱🌳 .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #CCF #cheetahconservationfund #cheetah #ccfcheetah #bigcat #arborday #tree #planttrees #science #NUST #namibiauniversityofscienceandtechnology #endextinction #racingextinction #endangered #endangeredspecies #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #savethecheetah #humansforcheetahs #raceforlife #namibia #africa

Ron disappeared in 2016, most likely succumbing to injuries while taking down prey. *Hunting is forbidden 🚫 in Kenya and carries steep penalties. We can only conjecture what happed to this beautiful lion. He lived a long, full life until 11 years of age. 👑 Photo Credit To: Francesco Del Vecchio #VanishingKings #RacingExtinction #1500LionsRemainInTheWild #PhoneYourLegislators

Mamadi Camara is among the 5 finalists for a competition run by @dswfwildlife !! Please vote to give Mamadi the credit he so very much deserves for his 10 years of work at the CCC! Mamadi is our Release Site Manager, which is in a very isolated location. He has an incredible handle of telemetry and GPS in order to follow the movements of chimpanzees equipped with tracking collars. He knows the group of chimpanzees very well from afar and plays an essential role to the success of the release program. Mamadi works hard, far from his family, but always with a huge smile! Click on the link in our bio for some video footage of his work and to vote for Mamadi!! #chimpanzeeconservationcenter #chimpanzee #wildlifesanctuary #wildlifeconservation #guinea #westafrica #notapet #wildanimal #animalrights #protectnature #biodiversity #orphan #illegalpettrade #sustainabledevelopment #raisingawareness #racingextinction #wildandfree #bush #nature
A Fiery Nudibranch grazing away in the enchanted forest. This photo really encapsulates the magical nature of the submerged world! One of the best ways to find a specific species of nudibranch, is to rather look for the individuals food source. It is very likely that the species will be nearby. This technique has saved me a lot of time searching!
It may all be so daunting to have to take on the subject of social responsibility. From eco-friendly, fair trade, cruelty-free to organic… there is much to navigate! Fret not, we are here to make it real simple for you. Not that we are authorities on the subject, nor are we control freaks. We are just passionate about helping us all get there. Basically, it is about setting into motion a conscious intention to steer our consumer behavior towards something that is more socially responsible. What can we do to tell the industries, we don’t want to trash the earth with plastic, consume harmful chemicals, cause suffering to animals and destroy the earth just for mindless greed. What does it take to realize that we can’t eat money! With this concern anchored in our hearts let’s rise to the occasion and say NO. From now on there can only be conscious consumerism – hands up! Barometers, is a place where we all can help each other get there. #treevolution #votewithmoney #barometers #greenwarrior #sociallyconscious #owngood #fairtrade #sustainableliving #racingextinction #meconsciousshopper
@tusk_org placed different Rhinos all over London. There was a whole trail to follow, #tuskrhinotrail , to find them all. This was in aid of raising awareness about rhino poaching, the threat to the species and letting people.know that they are on the brink of extinction due to poaching. #k_and_d_adventures #tuskrhinotrail #rhino #big5 #extinction #racingextinction #poaching #awareness #raisingawareness #london #tusk_org #horns #zebra #zebrastripes #stripes #blackandwhite #undercover #london #streetsoflondon #streetstyle #streetlife #streetart #art #artofvisuals #artistsoninstagram #wandering #explorelondon #uk #britain #exploring #exploringlondon
Long tailed Manakin Toledo (Chirophixia linearis) El bosque esconde bellos secretos para quién se toma el tiempo de leer y escuchar. Desde que tengo memoria el canto de los Manakines me acompaña a la escuela o a salir temprano en la mañana para el trabajo. A las tardes cálidas de verano y al inicio de las lluvias en Junio... Es un Ave que evoca recuerdos muy gratos y por eso estoy muy feliz con esta fotografía de estos machos haciendo su característico "Lek" o baile de apareamiento. @choneteherping #conservation #racingextinction #conservationphotography #bird #birdnerd #1frame4nature #wildtropics #wearethetropics #birdsofinstagram #natgeo #costarica
Spotted ant-bird Hormiguero manchado (Hylophylax naevioides) Un pajarito que me dio muchísimo reto por sus hábitos le encanta estar en el sotobosque en lugares oscuros y vegetación cerrada. Para encontrarlo caminé por el bosque húmedo en busca de hormigas arrieras ya que los hormigueros hacen honor a su nombre y usualmente mantienen una estrecha relación con estos insectos. Las hormigas son un ente de "caos" en el piso del bosque y estas además de otras aves les siguen y cazan los insectos mientras huyen despavoridos, es realmente impresionante de ver una coreografía de cacería entre estos dos organismos. @choneteherping #conservation #racingextinction #conservationphotography #tropicaldryforest #1frame4nature #rainforest #costarica #acg #guanacaste #wildtropics #wearethetropics #birdnerd
Es una de las especies más hermosas qué hay en nuestro país, pero si no cobramos conciencia ecológica, podría extinguirse. #jaguar #ElDespertarDelJaguar #reinoanimal #racingextinction #mexico 🇲🇽
Still in awe of the fascinating Manta rays in Santa Maria. These gentle giants seem to approach divers with curiosity. Some of them would even glide over our heads, displaying their white ventral side and markings which can be used for individual identification, just like a fingerprint. . . . #Azores #santamaria #ambrosio #scubadiving #underwaterphotography #nikon #subal #aqualung #ikelite #blue #mantaray #mobulatarapacana #mobula #ray #marineprotectedarea #mantamaria #education #research #conservation #ocean #racingextinction #atlantic  #YourShotPhotographer   #giant #ocean #bigfish @mantamaria_divecenter_azores @mantacatalogazores
Economic development in many parts of West Papua has been driven, to a large extent, by commercial land uses - from forestry and industrial plantations to mining operations - leading to vast deforestation and environmental degradation. These images I took a few days ago in the Arfak Mountain region illustrate the rich biodiversity of the rainforest here and present a devastating picture of the damage. We are literally losing the lungs of our planet...😢🌿 Giving up hope is NOT an option and we must do everything we can to ensure that these natural resources will be protected and conserved for future generations. #ProvinciKonservasi is an opportunity to establish a new paradigm of sustainable development - a policy path that aims to balance opportunities and reduce risks. 🌏🇮🇩 #papuabarat #protectwestpapua #racingextinction

We had a great time chatting with actor and UN Goodwill Ambassador @aidanrgallagher at the Illegal Wildlife Trade conference last week! Aidan inspired us with some great tips for helping the planet, by simply changing a few of the decisions we make every day. His top tip was to "Start with 1 thing"; a simple change you can manage -- like walking short distances, instead of taking the car, or trying out meat-free Mondays. Are you or your family making any small changes to help the planet? #Mondaymotivation . . Keep an eye out for our Dare to Explore interview with Aidan, coming soon! . . .
