Happy World Giraffe Day! Say hello to my little friend😎. #sandiegozoo #sandiegozooglobal #giraffe #sandiego
It's #worldgiraffeday ♥️🦒 Did you know that despite being one of Africa's most iconic animals several species are facing heavy threats of poaching, habitat loss, fragmentation, and human conflict. They face what many researchers have called a "silent extinction." ♥️🦒 More info is coming out about what these gentle giants face and how we can help #endextinction by supporting organizations like #sandiegozooglobal or getting involved in citizen science projects that help researchers in the field. ♥️🦒 And of course support AZA accredited zoos like the #sdzsafaripark where you can see these magnificent creatures in beautiful open 60 acre habitats.
🦒🌍 Conservation is a global challenge that requires global solutions. That’s why Smithsonian scientists are collaborating with @GiraffeConservationFoundation , #SanDiegoZooGlobal , #KenyaWildlifeService , and #SenckenbergBiodiversityandConservationCentre to help save the majestic giraffe. We’re working together to mount solar-powered GPS collars on the ossicones (horn-like protrusions) on giraffes to collect data on how and where these animals move. GPS trackers will also provide insight into threats giraffes face, from disease to human-giraffe conflict. Learn more about how Smithsonian scientists are working to protect the world’s tallest mammal: Link in profile #WorldGiraffeDay #WorldGiraffeDay2018
When it’s the greatest day of the year - World Giraffe Day - you celebrate the incredible giraffe conservation efforts in northern Kenya being led by a dynamic, innovative and impactful group of Samburu and Maasai Warriors - the Twiga Walinzi, with the surrounding communities. The future of giraffe are in great hands! . . . . . . . . . . . #WorldGiraffeDay #WGD #Giraffe #Giraffes #Wildlife #GiraffeConservationFoundation #GCF #GiraffeConservation #conservation #science @giraffeconservation @sandiegozoo @amivitale #sandiegozooglobal @jennastacydawes @nikkiegna @kirstieruppert @symonmasiaine @masiainesymon @sararacamp @nrt_kenya @loisaba_conservancy
When you finally see that kid who talks shit to you on the internet...
Вот до каких размеров доводит вегетарианство и сыроедение. А ведь она только бамбук ест. #панда #веган #сыроед . Причем специально для панд выращивают бамбук нескольких видов. Но все равно панда может побороться за звание самого фотогеничного инста-блогера. Смотрите как она позирует! А найдете вы эту красоту в зоопарке Сан Диего. Я в США стала частенько по зоопаркам ходить, что удивительно. Ну а как не ходить, если они такие классные? В зоопарке можно посмотреть как полярный медведь ест, делая всякие выкрутасы под водой. Да - да, вы не ослышались. Полярный медведь - он же белый. Ему охлаждают воду в бассейне и отдельно сыпят лед, чтоб он чувствовал себя как дома. А еще у него шерсть стала чуть тоньше, чем у тех медведей, что на Северном полюсе. Мое внимание привлекли гиппопотам с детенышем, замечательные панды, пума, фламинго (это моя любовь и они, кажется, есть в каждом зоопарке Америки), колибри и целое множество разноцветных птиц. Конечно же там есть и львы, и жирафы, и тигры, и т.д. Этот зоопарк считается одним из лучших в мире! И что самое удивительное - он настолько комфортен для жизни животных, что они там размножаются и живут своей обычной жизнью. И, кстати, именно сюда хотели перевезти динозавров с безлюдного острова в фильме “Парк Юрского периода 2” (1997 г). . Зоопарк Сан Диего достаточно большой, поэтому есть даже Hop on Hop Off автобус, который отвезет вас в любое место. Но для начала нужно проехаться на автобусе с обзорной экскурсией, чтоб понять, что охота посмотреть подольше, а то все увидеть можно и не успеть. Хотя в некоторых местах я по 3 раза была. Есть даже канатная дорога, с высоты которой видно чащи зоопарка и сам Сан Диего. Ну и на его посещение дня хватит, а цена самого обычного однодневного билета $54. А вы любите ходить в зоопарк?
There were once 15 types of tortoises, today only 11 have survived. The babies get released back to the appropriate island when their old enough. The San Diego Zoo is also involved in the conservation efforts. #charlesdarwinresearchstation #sandiegozoo #sandiegozooglobal #tortoiseconservation #tortoisesofinstagram #santacruzgalapagos #Galapagos #galapagosislands #galapagostrip #motherdaughtertrip #traveladventure #travelisgoodforthesoul #schoolsoutforsummer

Hamadryas Baboon Mother telling her baby girl all about life and in the next photo her daughter ponders this. 🧐 Fun Fact: Egyptians believed that this Baboon species was sacred to Thoth, the God of learning. They were so highly regarded in ancient Egypt that some were even mummified after death. 🙊Although they are currently extinct in Egypt, they can be found in large populations in Ethiopia, Somalia, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen. No other species of baboon is found as far north as the Hamadryas baboons. . . . #baboons #sandiegozoo #sandiego #sandiegozooglobal #sandiegophotographer #animalphotography #endextinction #conservation #hamadryasbaboon #babybaboon #animalsareawesome #baboonbutt #babyanimals #baboonsofinstagram

This is Jabula a 5 month old male cheetah cub @sandiegozoo 🐾What a perfect adorable little face he has and that little heart shaped nose 💕 Cheetahs are the fastest land animals topping out at at speeds of up to 70mph and reaching that speed in just a few strides. 😲 Did you know a group of cheetahs is called a coalition? . . . #photooftheday #sandiego #sdzoo #sandiegozoo #sandiegozooglobal #sandiegophotographer #cheetah #cheetahcub #animalsareawesome #endextinction #conservation #bigcatsofinstagram #bigcatlover #babycheetah #adorablecub #fastestanimalonland #smallbusinessowner #cutenessoverload #cheetahsofinstagram
Never smile at a crocodile😬 Today Disney released the 65th Anniversary Edition of Peter Pan & is now available on Digital & Blue Ray sooo guess what I did tonight🙈🐊✨ • West African Dwarf Crocodile • #peterpan #disney #peterpanquote #neverland
Tongue out Tuesday 👅from Etosha the most beautiful lioness @sandiegozoo 🐾 Did you know that a lions roar can be heard up to 3 miles away? 😲 Lions are also the only big cat to live in social groups called “prides”. Living in a pride makes it easier to survive as there is a better chance for success at hunting for food. 🍖The lionesses are the ones responsible for hunting and catching prey for the pride and they work together to accomplish this goal. Now that’s team work! 🦁Lions are listed as threatened, while not endangered their numbers are still decreasing due to disease, hunting and habitat loss. . . . #photooftheday #endextinction #lions #lioness #sandiego #sandiegozoo #sandiegozooglobal #sdzoo #sandiegophotographer #smallbusinessowner #animalsareawesome #bigcatlover #bigcatsofinstagram #bigcatsrule #conservation #queenofthejungle #beautifullioness #animalphotography #animallover

Welp, I’m outta here. Off to Namibia for a few weeks (grad school “study abroad”). Hope to see these beautiful gemsbok roaming the deserts along with more wildlife than I can imagine. Don’t worry, there’ll be photos and stories galore when I return!

🐾Here’s your Monday pick me up with my first digital painting of Satka with one of her sweet little cubs. 😻I’m looking for a title for this one so COMMENT BELOW WITH YOUR IDEAS! ⬇️ With only about 70 Amur Leopards left in their natural habitat, this is a huge win for this critically endangered species. 🤗Yay to @sandiegozoo for their global conservation efforts! 🙌🏻One of the many reasons I love this zoo so much! 💕 I’m working on creating an Amur Leopard series with prints to sell to help raise money for the leopards. Stay tuned! 🐆 Swipe to see “the moment” “the magic” 📸🎨 Have a great day everyone! . . . #endextinction #critcallyendangered #artoftheday #photographyanddigitalart #amurleopard #amurleopardcubs #mondaypickmeup #sandiego #sandiegozoo #sandiegozooglobal #sandiegoartist #sandiegophotographer #animalsareawesome #endangeredspecies #sdzoo #leopardsofinstagram #bigcatlover #bigcatsofinstagram #toocute #leopardcub #loveiswhatmatters #savetheanimals #conservation #mondayfeels

Less than 48 hours until destination Namibia. So excited to be able to learn about wildlife conservation in a country that has their community involved with protection of countless species roaming its arid ecosystem. Especially when that country also has one of the largest free-roaming populations of black rhino. Inspiring conservation wherever I travel. #conservation #wildlife #blackrhino #rhino #conservationmatters #communityengagement #advancedinquiryprogram #earthexpeditions #namibiabound #namibia #endextinction #sandiegozooglobal #sdzglobal #learnsomethingnew

What do you call a panda that wants to be left alone? IndePANDAnt 😂 This is a digital painting I created from a photo I took of Bai Yun who is a female giant panda at the San Diego zoo. 🐼Swipe to see “the moment” “the magic”. ✨Giant pandas live in the mountains of southwestern China and spend about 12 hours a day eating bamboo. 🎋In 2016 Giant Pandas were downlisted to Vulnerable after being listed as endangered for over 20 years! 👏🤗 This is always amazing news but the threat to the giant panda is not gone and they still face dangers such as habitat loss. We can help by making sure we are only buying bamboo products that have the FSC certification which makes sure that products are responsibly harvested and are from verified sources. You can learn more by visiting worldwildlife.org or SanDiegoZoo.com 🐼 . . . #giantpandas #artoftheday #sandiego #sandiegozoo #sandiegoartist #sandiegophotographer #sandiegozooglobal #animalsareawesome #pandasofinstagram #savetheanimals #endextinction #conservation #pandas #pandaart #wwf #pandabear #humpdaymotivation

The definition of power. A leopardess carries a ~100lb impala into a tree, leaping onto a vertical plane and yet still climbing upward. Leopards are known for carrying prey up to twice their own body weight into trees to feed away from competitors. It's one thing to know, another to see. . . . . . . . . . . #endextinction #landconnectedlifeprotected #loisaba #sandiegozooglobal #leopard #pardus #nature #wild #bigcat #power #powerlift #conservation #earthcapture #lifeofabiologist #video #videooftheday
