Imagine a world without animals. Empty seas, abandoned grasslands, lifeless horizons. How does that sound? We humans are not very far from seeing that materialise. By 2100, 50% of all animals will go extinct. Don't be a witness, be the solution. Join our Charity Screening of "Racing Extinction" on 20 December, Thursday at 8pm. Book your seats with the link in our bio. #CharityScreening #RacingExtinction #AwardWinning #20December #ThingsToDo #StartWith1Thing #BeInspired #AnimalsMatterToMe #ACRES #BeAnimalConscious

The alarm bells for the GIB, a flagship species of the grassland ecosystem, have been ringing loud for over a decade now. In 1969, over 1,000 Great Indian Bustards roamed the country’s grasslands. Today, with a global population of fewer than 150 individuals, the GIB is critically endangered, and in danger of extinction. But grasslands are more than just the GIBs. They are home to innumerable other equally important species. By protecting the GIBs and their grassland habitats, we protect the vulnerable rest too. Already extinct from 90 per cent of its geographical range, fewer than 150 of these beautiful birds survive in the fragmented grasslands of Rajasthan and Gujarat, along with a few individuals surviving in Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. Grasslands are not wastelands! Sign the petition to save the Great Indian Bustard from extinction! Link in bio. #SaveTheGreatIndianBustard #RacingExtinction
There should actually be a sign warning the wildlife to beware the humans. #racingextinction #yellowstonenps # bantrophyhunting #saveourwildlife
A tiny percentage with a disproportionate impact • • Earlier this year, an assessment published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that humans account for an estimated 0.01% of our planets biomass. The study found that of all the mammals on earth, 60% are livestock, 36% are humans, and 4% are wild mammals. Of all birds on the planet, 70% are farmed poultry with just 30% being wild. • Wild species play a huge part in regulating our planet at its ecosystems. Altering the earths biomass so drastically is undoubtedly throwing all our natural ecosystems into a state of unknown. • • 📸 by John Vosloo | @johnvosloophotography • • • #lendahelpinghand #worthmorealive #losinglife #human #impact #habitat #habitatconservation #ecosystem #planet #earth #nature #biomass #wildlife #animals #species #biodiversity #environment #naturehub #racingextinction #turningthetide #360fortheplanet #naturelovers #protect #conservation #awareness #save #everydayextinction #photography #photooftheday

“We have to do something. Not having hope is not an excuse for not doing anything because the one thing we need more than hope is action. Because once you start to act - hope is everywhere ❤ They don’t realize how much power they have and how much they could do but they choose not to. I think that in the future we will look back and either laugh at them or hate them. It’s very sad but it’s the truth.” — Greta Thunberg #Repost @wildaware with @get_repost ・・・ #wildaware #bethechange #animals #inspire #hope #vegan #racingextinction #conservation #savethisplanet #leader #rolemodel #gretathunberg #sweden #plastic #hope #action #environment #climatechange #climatechangeisreal #takeyourseat #poland #wedonthavetime #kidsfirst #mothernature #healthiswealth

An important message from Shawn Heinrichs Credit © 📷 @shawnheinrichs Time is running out for manta rays. Long lived (50 years or more), slow to mature (8-10 years or more), and very slow to reproduce (1 pup every 2-3 years), manta rays are some of the most biologically vulnerable of any large marine species. A female manta may give birth to 16 pups over her entire lifetime, IF she is not slaughtered. To put that in perspective, the highly vulnerable great white shark can produce that many pups in a single litter. Yet manta rays are being hunted relentlessly across the globe, a slaughter fueled primarily by demand for their gills. At current rates, many manta populations will be lost within the next decade. The question is, will the wold take notices and will we ACT before it is too late? 😔🦋💔 #mantamonday #worthmorealive #turningthetide #racingextinction

Yet manta rays are being hunted relentlessly across the globe, a slaughter fueled primarily by demand for their gills. At current rates, many manta populations will be lost within the next decade. A peer-reviewed study led by @WildAid , @MantaTrust and @sharksavershk estimated that manta ecotourism generates USD$140 million in annual revenues globally (and USD$15 million per year in Indonesia alone), making the species vital for many Indonesian communities that rely on ecotourism for their livelihood. However, manta rays are highly threatened by targeted fisheries, which annually generate USD$400,000 in comparison. Although there is clear evidence that stocks are in decline, these fisheries continue to increase their fishing efforts, posing a huge threat to the survival of ray populations. The question is, will the wold take notices and will we ACT before it is too late? 😔🦋💔 #mantamonday #worthmorealive #turningthetide #racingextinction

Truth ❤️: Real change in the world will only come from a change of heart. Self-centredness is harmful; we must think instead in global terms. We can change people’s ways of thinking through education and scientists can contribute to this by providing detailed information. Ultimately we have to change attitudes, not by law but by education. - Dalai Lama #truth #education #science #bethechange #nicaraguanseaturtleproject #goodvibesonly #bepresent #startwith1thing #racingextinction #saveseaturtles #animalconservation #animalbiology #marinebiology #ibelieve #childrenareourfuture #teachthemwell #nstp #dalailama #allforlove 🙏🏻

The #GreatIndianBustard is an exquisite ground-nesting bird. Unfortunately, feral dogs have emerged as a dangerous threat to the existence of #GIBs . Here a feral dog chases a female #GIB which had been foraging for inspects in the grasses, to feed its chick. If you look closely, you will spot a little critter trapped in the bird's beak. We have to make GIBs grounds and skies safe. Act now and sign the petition. Lets give GIBs a fighting chance.

We'd like to throw this out for your input! Nutritional labels are required across appropriate products these days and we believe environment labels should be a requirement too. The few little environmental symbols are confusing enough as it is but nowhere on a product, price included, is the true cost of that item reflected. If it was used our hope would be that consumers make more ethical decisions and pressure their favorite brands to do better and that manufacturers also make better choices that aren't purely profit driven; because some of this is not going to look good on a label! We've had a go at a rough first draft. What do you think? What have we missed? What would you like to see on an impact label when you're buying? What things would you consider? Is this a terrible idea? This is a work-in-progress idea so let us know! Some thoughts: We know this is in an "ideal world" - we'd like to play in that space for a moment :) We know some of this is hard to measure and this is obviously targeted to bigger companies. Let's just see what we end up with for now! Also this would be on a per product basis. So if you're buying a box of something it applies against the box. If you buy a bottle of something, it's for that bottle. Ok, have at it!

Thank you @savethebeesaustralia for this little short an ode to ancestral practices. Cuba rocks for the Bees ・・・ How trade embargoes from the United States on #Cuba created an industry and helps safe guard the worlds bee population. With the United States’ trade embargo and no local pesticide producers, Cuba's government has basically been obliged to adopt organic farming practices. The lands available for honey bees has remained pesticide free and rich in biodiversity and her #bees are thriving. All of Cuba’s honey can be certified as #organic . It has a very specific, typical taste; in monetary value, it’s a high ranking product”. The equation is simple no #monsanto no #bayer means a thriving #organic industry. Honey exports are fourth in the list of Cuba’s agricultural exports, ahead of sugar and coffee. . Cuba’s pesticide-free bee industry is an important economic source for the island and can globally act as a protection as we see honey contamination and bees decline around the world. The United Nations have sent a warning to the world to wake up before its to late if the #USA government continues to push for the use of more chemically-intensive and corporate-dominated farming methods such as GMOs and monoculture-based crops the quality of food and life. There is a urgent need to return to (and develop) a more sustainable, natural and organic system. The UN report noted reforms are needed and to be wary of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the U.S.-EU Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) are primarily designed to strengthen the hold of multinational corporate and financial firms on the global economy…rather than the reflect the urgent need for a shift in agriculture. Even global security may be at stake according to the report, as food prices (and food price speculating) continue to rise. #organic #permaculture #localised #farming #savethebees #beethecure #TheArtofClimateChange #AtelierMeld #climateart #ecoart #racingextinction #bees #queenbee #climateaction #environment #crafts #foodsecurity #food #thefutureisfemale

Meskipun daratan Indonesia hanya menutupi 1,3% dari permukaan Planet Bumi, secara global negara kita merupakan rumah bagi 12% mamalia, 16% reptil dan amfibi, 17% burung, 10% tanaman berbunga, serta 25% spesies ikan. Terdapat enam spesies Kangguru Pohon yang hidup di Indonesia, di antaranya adalah Kangguru Pohon Ndomea (Dendrolagus dorianus), Kangguru Pohon Hias (Dendrolagus goodfellowi), Kangguru Pohon Wakera (Dendrolagus inustus), Kangguru Pohon Mbaiso (Dendrolagus mbaiso), Kangguru Seri (Dendrolagus stellarum) dan Kangguru Pohon Nemena (Dendrolagus ursinus). Semua spesies Kangguru Pohon ini dapat ditemukan di hutan Papua. Salah satu spesies yang paling terancam di Indonesia adalah Kangguru Pohon Mbaiso, spesies ini diklasifikasikan ke dalam spesies Terancam Punah (Endangered/EN) dalam Daftar Merah IUCN. Berbeda dengan kanguru di Australia yang hidup menjejakkan kaki di permukaan tanah, Kangguru Pohon menghabiskan sebagian besar masa hidupnya di pepohonan. Dia memiliki telapak kaki baesar seperti bantalan ditutupi dengan kulit kasar dan kaki agak melengkung, memberinya pegangan yang kuat pada batang dan dahan pohon. Spesies ini memiliki ekor yang panjang (± 40 – 94  cm) dan membantu keseimbangan tubuhnya saat bergerak menembus pepohonan. Dia memiliki tinggi tubuh sekitar 52 – 81 cm, dan bobot tubuhnya 6,5 – 14,5 kg. Populasi Kangguru Pohon Mbaiso kian terancam seiring dengan semakin maraknya pembukaan lahan yang membuat hutan habitatnya menyusut. Jumlah populasinya diperkirakan mengalami penurunan sebanyak lebih dari 80 persen selama 30 tahun terakhir. Tidak hanya pembukaan lahan, ancaman utama lainnya adalah perburuan yang dilakukan oleh komunitas adat di Papua untuk dikonsumsi gadingnya dan sering dijadikan makanan pengganti babi di upacara adat mereka.

Whale watching is a great idea if you're looking to gift an experience. We love the ocean and the creatures living there, and have found whale watching an incredibly humbling experience. These Southern Right Whales have come back from the brink of extinction after extreme hunting (that's why they were called the right whale; they were easy to get) but are still considered endangered. The other Right Whale species (the North Atlantic Right Whale) is facing extinction with only approx. 300 left. They are dying from fishing nets, colliding with ships & lack of plankton. All human impacts. In Australia where there were previously 55 - 70,000 of these beautiful animals, there are only 3,500 left. Their species as a whole is about 8,000. Due to their breeding cycles we were informed on the trip that they are still likely to disappear. The general intervals between births of the whale species pictured here is now nearly 5 years (somebody on the boat joked it was the same with their husband!! 😂). These whales and their big, blue home need protection to ensure they're around for more generations.

Im grateful that my work allows me to observe and document many of the planet's rarest species in their natural habitats. The feelings of inspiration, respect and amazement that you get when in company of these species, however, quickly become mixed with those of uneasiness and sadness as you inevitably reflect on how they came to be rare in the first place. While in Tanzania we spotted two critically endangered Black Rhinos resting in the distance. Time froze as I watched them sleep in peace. I thought back to my childhood, looking at pictures of them in National Geographic in my primary school's library. At the time it would have been unfathomable to think that only 25 years later their numbers would have dropped by over 95% (from 70,000 in the 1980s to only 5,500 left today). Although black rhinocerous numbers are now slightly increasing due to reintroduction programs, the species continues to be decimated by poaching. Its extremely sobering to consider these statistics, and equally disturbing to have to wonder if future generations will even get to share the planet with these magnificent animals.

Cheetah, cheetah, cheetah! . The fastest land animal in the world is nearing extinction and needs your help. There are only 7,100 cheetahs left in the wild, 3,500 of which live in the most magical country I have ever had the pleasure of visiting, NAMIBIA. Due to the dedicated work of the Cheetah Conservation Fund, this beautiful species still has hope. Learn how you can make a difference and get involved in cheetah conservation. @ccfcheetah . #cheetahs #cheetahconservationfund #drlauriemarker #namib #magical #namibdesert #otjiwarongo #africa #fastestlandmammal #protectwhatyoulove #ccf #racingextinction @racingextinction #keepthemwild #wildandfree #namibia 🇳🇦 #wildlifebiologist #natgeowild #wildlifeconservation #animalsofinstagram
Better light one candle than curse the darkness @shawnheinrichs with a beautiful anecdote about action. . We can be pessimistic about the future or we can do our contribution to bring the change. People around the world are showing already their disagreement against the recklessness of governmental descision regarding climate change and environmental protection. Many of the biggest demonstrations lately in Europe and North America have been against global warming. We need to spread the message, talk about sustainable technologies as well as changes in every day life and most importantly: take action!!! In a few years it will be too late already. . .

Korupsi Ancam Pelestarian Harimau Sumatera Oleh: Sela Ola Olangi Barus Sumber: www.wwf.id Korupsi merupakan salah satu penyebab terbesar dalam perdagangan satwa dilindungi. Kegiatan korupsi terkait satwa dilindungi dapat terjadi di setiap tahap dalam perdagangan satwa dilindungi. Mulai dari melanggengkan pelaku perburuan, hingga mengamankan jalannya pendistribusian hasil olahan satwa dilindungi. Bahkan korupsi dapat melindungi pelaku perburuan dari jerat hukuman. UU No. 5 Tahun Tahun 1990 tentang Keanekaragaman Hayati dan Ekosistem yang hanya memberikan sanksi maksimal lima tahun penjara dan denda Rp 100 juta, dapat menjadi celah bagi oknum untuk melakukan tindak korupsi. Sekretaris Direktorat Jenderal Penegakan Hukum Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan (Setditjen-Gakkum), Kemal Amas juga pernah menyatakan bahwa rata-rata pelaku perburuan dan perdagangan satwa dilindungi hanya dihukum dua tahun penjara. Bahkan pada tanggal 8 Juni 2016 lalu, PN Palembang hanya memvonis 6 bulan penjara bagi pelaku perdagangan Harimau Sumatera. Tidak hanya dalam kasus perdagangan satwa dilindungi, korupsi juga turut andil dalam alih fungsi hutan habitat satwa dilindungi. Pembabatan hutan secara masif mencurigakan beberapa pihak bahwa terjadi tindakan penyuapan dalam hal perizinan. Seperti yang dilihat dari kpkpos.com, Peneliti Sawit Watch mengatakan bentuk penyimpangan korupsi terjadi pada proses perolehan Hak Guna Usaha (HGU) dan sebanyak 40 persen perkebunan kelapa sawit beroperasi tanpa HGU. Berdasarkan berita dari Liputan6.com, hasil kajian yang dilakukan KPK di tahun 2014 lalu menemukan adanya potensi suap di sektor perizinan kehutanan yang mencapai Rp 22 miliar. KPK menambahkan bahwa sebagian besar hasil temuan tersebut berada di Pulau Sumatera. Pemberantasan korupsi terkait satwa dilindungi bukan hanya menjadi tanggung jawab pemerintah dan penegak hukum. Peran aktif masyarakat Indonesia juga dibutuhkan dalam menjaga satwa dilindungi, seperti Harimau Sumatera. Kawal setiap proses hukum terkait perdagangan satwa dilindungi. Yuk, sama-sama berantas korupsi untuk menjaga kelestarian Harimau Sumatera! #savetheplanet #savetigers #saveanimals #savetheanimals #racingextinction
Encounter Sumatran #orangutan in #leuserecosystem , Leuser national park - Aceh province , Indonesia last November 2018. Orangutans are #keystone species. As orangutans disappear, it signals the disappearance of thousands of other animals and plant species in fragile tropical rain forest habitats. . . #saveourforest #saveourplanet #conservation #rainforest #love #green #nature #motherearth #water #air #lingkariindonesia #travel #garagarainstagram #wildlife #conservationphotographer #wildlifephotography #rakyathutan #jagahutan #wonderfulindonesia #hutanituindonesia #wildlifeasia #photography #racingextinction
An iconic #grasslands species, the Great Indian Bustard's future is hanging by a thread. Because of its unique biology and extreme anthropogenic pressures, the GIB is finding it hard to revive. That is unless we intervene. Among the #anthropogenic pressures and threats, the overhead power transmission lines pose the biggest threat to the #species and we need your support to urge our Ministry of Power to lay the transmission lines running across the GIB habitats underground.
