So happy to have my sister here in San Diego!! #BestZooInTheUS #SanDiegoZooGlobal #NonProfit 🦁🐼🐨🐻🐸
I got you #africa !! Continuing my #worldelephantday with this African Grey giant #africanelephant #didyouknow : African Elephants communicate with each other through a type of growling noise. To signal danger they produce a loud ear-splitting sound. They are also known to produce very low frequency noises that can travel up to 7 kilometers (4.3 miles). #interestingfacts #internationalelephantday #elephant #elephants #wildlife #animalplanet #wwf #wildlifeconservation #sandiegozooglobal #sandiegozoo #sandiegozoosafaripark
Happy World Elephant Day! #🐘 #sandiegozooglobal #savetheelephants

Day 222/365: This gorgeous #CaliforniaCondor was kind enough to show off his magnificent wingspan today during my #zoo visit. #Vultures are such an important part of the ecosystem. Thanks for being an active member of nature's clean up crew, guys. 😍 Crazy to think that there were only 22 #California #condors left in 1982 due to destruction of habitat, poaching, and lead poisoning. When #SanDiegoZooGlobal was given permission to begin a captive breeding program things started turning around for the #birds . 😄 Thanks to the conservation-breeding program, within 20 years the population of California condors grew to almost 200 birds! More than 50 California condors now join the population every year, and 12 to 15 chicks now hatch in the wild annually. As of October 31, 2014, the total population of California condors is 425! Of those, 219 are living in the wild. 💕 Part of the reason why I love the #SDzoo so much are all of the conservation and breeding efforts that help fight for endangered species. Kinda crazy to think that without SD Zoo Global, I could have been born in a California desert without any vultures. 😮 Just to be clear, I wasn't born literally in the middle of a desert; I was born in a hospital in San Diego, but vultures don't tend to hang out there (though maybe they should). 🤔 #Aves #Falconiformes #Cathartidae #Gymnogyps #californianus #Gymnogypscalifornianus #SanDiegoZoo

Throwing it back to 4 years ago when we went to the zoo!!! #memories #TBT #flowerpower 🌸 #animalfun
Celebrating wild cats of all shapes and sizes for #internationalcatday but also to pay tribute to the late Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, Panthera co-founder and leading expert in the conservation of wild cats. His work brought together wildlife, humans and habitat in order to find solutions that would keep iconic wild cats roaming across the world. Your work has influenced many communities to keep your vision of saving wild cats around the globe and we hope to continue off your leadership into the future. Rest In Peace Dr. Rabinowitz.

Day 209/365: Today is #GlobalTigerDay so we went to @sdzsafaripark to spend time with the #tigers at the #TigerTrail ! 🐯 While Majel gnawed on a meaty bloodsicle, I signed up to sponsor #TigerConservation and Breeding through #SanDiegoZooGlobal at $15 a month, which means I'll be cancelling my carwash account of the same price. It's not much, but every little bit adds up to help #SaveTheTigers . 💖 I also learned that the #SiberianTiger population has been reduced so much that they have changed the name to #AmurTiger in order to reflect their only remaining demographic. One cause of their dwindling population is loss of habitat due to deforestation. 😿 One of the biggest industries causing the deforestation of these areas is Palm Oil. According to the World Wildlife Fund, an area the equivalent size of 300 football fields of rainforest is cleared every hour to make way for Palm Oil production. 😱 The Tiger Keepers introduced us to a Palm Oil Shopping Guide App (available for free in the playstore) to check if the product you are about to purchase is "tiger friendly" and R.S.P.O. certified. Their database contains over 6,000 products from 100's of consumer product manufacturers. Also use the app to discover or select alternative products to those which are not certified by searching for a product type or ingredient. Spread the word. 👍 #EndExtinction #Animalia #Chordata #Mammalia #Carnivora #Feliformia #Felidae #Pantherinae #Panthera #Tigris #PantheraTigrisTigris

All 6 extant tiger subspecies are listed as either “endangered” or “critically endangered” due to habitat loss, poaching, human-wildlife conflicts and even illegal wildlife trade. If there’s one message I could share with everyone is learn to respect tigers. Tigers play an important role as one of Asia’s apex predators and keep the populations of many prey species in check within the ecosystem. Their place is in the wild and not in the market for their body parts or even the pet trade (they have no value in these markets). Tigers should be treated with more dignity and respect than we give them (instead of being someone’s “house pet”) and more as a beautiful creature that serves as a focal point for much of Asia’s wildlife and it’s biodiversity.

Celebrating Global Tiger Day with the tigers at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Teddy looking very regal and Nelson taking a dip to cool off. I brought the keepers 6 new colognes from Nordstrom to use in their scent enrichment program with the big cats which made everyone happy😎. #tiger #conservation #sandiegozooglobal #sandiegozoosafaripark #wildlifeconservation

Leopard Shark because #SharkWeek2018 🦈 Captured this little guy saying hi @sandiegozoo incredible 200,000 gallon pool 💦and habitat for both the sharks and African penguins. 🐧 The habitat is 70 feet long and 10 feet wide and stretches 170 feet, with depths up to 13 feet. 😲Quite impressive and a must see! Plus this is a shark that poses no threat to humans unlike the infamous Great White! ✌🏻🦈 • • • #sharkweek2018 #discoverychannel #sandiego #sandiegozoo #sandiegophotographer #sandiegozooglobal #leopardshark #sharksareawesome #fins #dundundun #sharkweek #ilovesharks

Zoodaze are the best days
📷Photo-art 🎨of the day featuring the Clouded Leopard! 🐾This has to be one of the most beautiful cats I’ve ever seen. 💕I had so much fun creating this digital painting from a photo I took at the Animals in Action show at the San Diego Zoo. ✨Swipe to see “the moment” “the magic”!✨ • The Clouded Leopard can be found in Southeast Asia, mostly inhabiting tropical rain forests. 🌿 Its canine teeth are longer than any other feline species relative to its body size. 😺Their 2 inch canines are the same size as a tigers 🐯even though a tiger is 10 times it’s size! It’s tooth development is said to be most like the extinct Sabertooth cat. 😲 They are also excellent hunters and have the ability to rotate their ankles backwards which makes it so they can climb down a tree head first, climb upside down and even hang from its back feet leaving the front paws open to snatch up its prey! 🙀 They are listed as Vulnerable due to habitat loss and hunting for illegal wildlife trade. Their habitat is undergoing the worlds fastest deforestation rate. 😔 • • • #endextinction #palmoilcrisis #conservation #sandiego #sandiegozoo #sandiegoartist #sandiegophotographer #sandiegozooglobal #bigcatlover #animalambassador #animalphotography #animalsareawesome #digitalart #digitalpainting #photoart #cloudedleopard #bigcatlover #catlover #bigcatsofinstagram #artoftheday #animalart #leopardart
June 13, 2018 Don the Tapir was born. Here he is at 5 weeks old, with his loving keepers. iPhone through my camera lens. #sandiegozooglobal #sandiegozoo
Warning!!!!! Extreme levels of cuteness. This is one of the new Amur leopard cubs born at the San Diego Zoo. The Amur leopard is a critically endangered animal with less than 100 remaining in the wild. This is a huge win for the species, and the San Diego Zoo. #sandiegozoo #endextinction #sandiegozooglobal #sandiegozoowildlifeconservancy #cutenessoverload #cuteness #caturday

Yeleny Smith, pictured here with lemurs, is an AIP grad who works as part of the primate team at San Diego Zoo Global. Smith cares primarily for the lemurs, such as Blue-Eyed Black lemurs, Ring-Tailed lemurs, Red-Collared lemurs, Red Ruffed lemurs, and Coquerel's sifaka in the new Africa Rocks exhibits. #nationalzookeeperweek #sandiegozooglobal #AdvancedInquiryProgram #AIPSanDiegoZooGlobal #ProjectDragonfly #MiamiOH

Can’t get enough of how cute these little ones are and how fast they’re growing up. But all the better to help their species avoid extinction (Amur leopards are down to less than 100 individuals in the wild).
