Proudly rocking my new #dontkillmybuzz shirt! 😍🐝
Did you know pollinators are responsible for 1/3 of the bites of food we take each day? That’s incredible! 👏🏼🍅🍫🥒
There are many ways you can help pollinators and many great information sources out there to help you. Groups like @xercessociety@pollinatorpartnership@beesponsible and @nationalwildlife are awesome places to start! 🙌🏼
If you have any questions on how to get started, feel free to comment below 👇🏼 or send me a DM! ☺️

Meet Charles Orgbon III, Business Consultant, Deloitte & Touche LLP
Charles is a recent Presidential Leadership Scholar graduate from the University of Georgia, where he obtained an undergraduate degree in environmental economics and management. Charles’s journey as an environmentalist began in 2008; he was only 12-years-old. Charles noticed his school’s littering problem, and wanted to organize a student-led effort to resolve the problem. He later developed Greening Forward, which would become a leading organization in the United States that’s devoted to training and funding student environmental leaders, ages 5-25. Greening Forward helps students tackle environmental challenges in their own communities and around the world. Most recently, Charles completed an Arctic Science Expedition which has helped informed his role as an informal environmental educator, and has integrated his award-winning blueprint for youth environmental leadership into Chilean and Colombian school systems. Charles’s work is validated by over 31 local, national, and international awards, five book mentions, and over 100 speaking engagements since 2010. In February 2018, Charles began working at Deloitte & Touche LLP as a business consultant, where he will bring his non-profit sector experience to the business world. The example that Charles sets has inspired countless youth to follow his footsteps.
Charles will be speaking 07/25 as part of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Conservation session at #NACCB2018 . See who else is speaking here:

Wildflowers provide a beautiful hiking experience ... and great foreground interest in photographs! Plan your photography outings now and submit your best images for a chance to be featured in our Wild Desert Calendar. Photo: Alan Majchrowicz.
Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) // An unsettled female paces around her enclosure, as she can hear other tigers at the rear of the facility.
Big cats in general (especially captive ones) are very predictable animals, and you can accurately assume where / what they will do before they even think to do it.
In this case, the female would pace back & forth at the gate in full sunlight for 10-15 mins, followed by a dip in the waterfall, and one quick lap of the enclosure - then straight back to pacing.
Knowing this was now routine, I was able to position the tripod and patiently wait for her to run through the motions.
SNAP. Just like clockwork ⏱

BIGGEST NEWS IN THE BOLTON DOME ACQUISITION
CRAG-VT GRANTED $40,000!! Many thanks to the Conservation Alliance for their belief in this project to forever protect this cliff for Vermont climbers. We can't express what an impact a grant of this size has on a project of this magnitude. And this isn't the first time they have helped us out! When we protected the Bolton Quarry, Conservation Alliance was there. A true ally to climbers! #conservation#cragvt#boltondome#climbvt#toughschist#accessfund#climbing
This quote is especially true for the Galapagos Islands! Did you know the Galapagos National Park has very strict rules and regulations about what is allowed in the archipelago? For example, flash photography of wildlife is not allowed and visitors to protected areas must be accompanied by a naturalist guide authorized by the park. These rules play an important part in protecting the ecosystem for generations to come.

In Singapore, architecture firm Büro Ole Scheeren has completed the DUO twin towers, which represents a historic collaboration between the governments of Malaysia and Singapore. DUO is designed to meet Singapore’s Building & Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Scheme, an initiative to shape more environmentally friendly buildings and to promote sustainability in the built environment. DUO’s iconic building design adapts to its unique neighbours' rich history and vibrant personalities.
No matter where you live or how far away you are from the beach, plastic pollution has an extremely devastating effect on all marine life. Single use plastic products, like plastic bags, straws, water bottles and pretty much any plastic disposable containers, are the main culprits. They eventually make their wait into the ocean and continue to cover huge portions of the oceans surface, threatening almost all sea life.
I urge everyone to be more conscious about what they buy and how they live if we are to continue to enjoy this beautiful blue planet we live on, and always pick up any trash or garbage you see, there is no shame in it. 🐟🐋🐠🐡🐙🦐🦀🌍🌏🌎🌊
I’m so excited for today’s #FancyFriday#FancyScientist and am super jealous of her job. Dr. Rebecca Johnson (@drrebeccaj ) is the first female director of the Australian Museum Research Institute (in over 190 yrs!). She is a wildlife forensic scientist, conservation geneticist, and is the co-chief investigator of the Koala Genome Consortium, a group sequencing the koala genome for conservation applications (such as diseases). As a forensic scientist, she solves wildlife crimes. Wildlife trafficking of live or dead animals, or their parts is an illegal business worth billions of dollars that seriously threatens the survival of many species. Rebecca’s genetic research can identify endangered species (if it’s animal parts) or where the confiscated item comes from, which provides information on which ports/countries are lacking in adequate protections. Rebecca gets to dress up a lot (jealous!) as she attends lots of galas. All of her clothes are from @cueclothingco , an Australian clothing company where the clothes are all made in Australia. Finally, she was named a Superstar of STEM by the Science and Technology Australia Initiative and was featured in @vogueaustralia !
The state of the wildlife!
Cougar also know as the mountain lion, puma, panther is an ambush predator and pursues a wide variety of prey. It’s is native to the americas and it’s range spreads across Canada to South America. There are several subspecies of cougar. One mountain lion subspecies - the Florida Panther is listed as critically endangered with less than 100 individuals. Across the US an estimated 30,000 cougars live in the wild. Increasing habitat loss and hunting for sports has caused decline in the population.
