We all love flamingos! It turns out the pretty pink birds can also be very effective at helping zoos with their four main missions: Conservation, Research, Education & Recreation. Find out how in this new paper, published in the new journal of the IUCN Flamingo Specialist Group: http://www.flamingo-sg.org/journal/flamingo-2018/paper-4-p-rose/?fbclid=IwAR3v8xTgOaDQ_i-7l6JD45g9i_kUZW2WVbAs0ZYvMEx8_S0WgylNORZLdF0 Photo: WWT #Flamingos #ZooConservation #ZooResearch #ZooScience #ZooEducation #Zoos #IUCN #FSG

Flashback to 2001 when I was an intern at the Cincinnati Zoo. My life has changed so much in the past 18 years, but my passion for endangered species has not wavered. #asianelephant #elephant #elephants #elephantsofinstagram #conservation #zoos #wildlife #endangeredzoos #veterinarian #wildlife #wildlifevet

I recently watched @BBCTwo series called #GrizzlyBearCubsAndMe about a #Russian family who rescue orphaned #BearCubs and rehabilitate them for release back into the wild. They have saved the lives of over 200 babies. _ #Grizzly #Cubs sadly get orphaned a lot in the wilds of #Russia due to #Hunters killing their mothers or #Logging companies destroying their #Forest homes and dens. _ Filmmaker @GordonJBuchanan spent 8 months in Russia to raise the cubs pictured. They were so weak and vulnerable it looked as though they wouldn’t make it but Gordon and the family provided 24 hour care. _ It was fascinating to watch the process. The humans never spoke around them so that they’d never get accustomed to human voices. Contact was minimised to feeding times. The cubs slept in boxes that resembled #Bear dens. They were taken to the wilderness to learn to climb and to lakes to learn to swim. They were taught to fear humans for their own safety. _ They eventually got released into the #Wild for good, which was very emotional to watch. If you swipe across you can see footage of one of the #Bears being released. _ They were fitted with collars to track their whereabouts. The collars are designed to fall off after a year so as not to cause them any discomfort as they grow. As per the third video if you swipe across, the collars have shown that all six babies managed to successfully hibernate in dens for the winter proving the rehabilitation to be a success. _ This is true #Humanity - people helping rather than hurting #Animals . I really hope these beautiful bears will manage to evade evil #Bear hunters and greedy logging companies so that they can live full lives in their natural habitat. As per the final pic, @BornFreeFoundation were so moved by the programme that they have offered to help. _ P.S. Please never visit bears in #Zoos as #CaptivityIsCruel . #Freedom is the natural born right of all sentient beings. _ Caption @a_lallie_ #a_lallie_ Pics/Vids ©️ @bbctwo @obrcrussia @gordonjbuchanan @bornfreefoundation
These two...brighten my day every single day. 🐊❤️❤️❤️ _ Historically, hunting and habitat loss have severely impacted American alligator populations throughout their range, and whether the species would survive was in doubt. In 1967, the American alligator was listed as an endangered species (under a law that was the precursor Endangered Species Act of 1973), since it was believed to be in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range. _ Both the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and state wildlife agencies in the South contributed to the American alligator's recovery. Protection under the Endangered Species Act allowed the species to recuperate in many areas where it had been depleted. States began monitoring their American alligator populations to ensure that they would continue to grow. In 1987, the USFWS removed the animal from the endangered species list, as it was considered to be fully recovered. _ American Alligators are still bred in so called “alligator farms” for alligator meat, leather, & other goods. Today, alligator farming is a large, growing industry in Georgia, Florida, Texas, & Louisiana. _ Crocodiles suffer from stress in confined spaces such as farms, leading to disease outbreaks. Most crocodilians keep a body temperature within 28 and 33 degrees Celsius. On farms, body temperatures can reach 36 degrees Celsius, which affects the animals' immune system, and puts them at risk of various illnesses. Another concern is for the cleanliness of the water in enclosures. _ In Vietnam, skinning is performed on still living crocodiles. Workers at such farms told investigators that the majority of the skins went to make fashion accessories such as bags, wallets, belts and shoes. Biologists said there was no probability the animals die instantly, & that they likely remained conscious & sensitive to stress & pain for up to two hours after the process, which is outrages. The best way to effect real change is in reducing the demand for these products. *I am not “against” leather. I am against the skinning on living animals. (Tho you can imagine I love these animals so much & personally don’t support the industry.)❤️

🐎 Thoroughbred Horses 🐎 Originating in England, Thoroughbreds are mainly known for horse racing, however, they can also be good at show jumping, dressage and polo. With their tall, slim, athletic figures, they can range from 15.2-17 hands, their average being 16 hands. They are often crossbred to create new breeds and improve existing ones. Some breeds that have been influenced by thoroughbreds are Quarter Horse, Standardbred and Anglo-Arabian. I have decided to start doing these fact type posts to mix things up. 💓 #thoroughbred #thoroughbreds #beautiful #animals #horse #horses #racing #jumping #dressage #polo #animal #pet #pets #zoo #zoos #horsesofig #horsesofinstagram #horsesofinsta #horseofig #horseofinstagram #horseofinsta #pony #fact #facts #factfile #neigh

Happy caturday
Lots happening at the Zoo this weekend! Come through for Eagle and Bird Appreciation Days! Fun starts today at 10:30! And come back after the storm for some great snowshoeing! Keep an eye on our social media tomorrow for any closures or delays. No matter the weather, our keepers will be on grounds with our animals during the storm. We are also taking extra steps to ensure all of our animals safety during the extreme cold expected.
Went to the zoo today with Master D. Loved the jungle aviary walthrough. We had a blast. Four hours later one tired muma and one exhausted threenager. But it was a fun day! . . . . . . @zoos_sa #zoo #adelaidezoo #adelaide #animals #zoos #threenager #toddler #wildlife #walking #exploring #fun #exhausted #birds #lioons #panda #dino #dinosaurs #mum #mom #mumlife #momlife #selfie #amaturephotographer #amaturephotography
Ça ressemble à un wallaby mais ce n'en est pas un.... C'est un Pademelon à queue courte (Thylogale brunii)! Il est plus petit et vit dans la forêt en Nouvelle-Guinée. Cette espèce n'est pas très connue et d'ailleurs il y a peu d'informations à son propos sur internet... Elle est tout de même classée "vulnérable" par l'IUCN (Union Internationale pour la Conservation de la Nature). . 🌎 It looks like a Wallaby but it's not. It's a.... Dusky Pademelon (Thylogale brunii)! It is smaller and live in New Guinea forest. This species is not very well known. And by the way, it's difficult to find some informations about it on the Internet...

The meerkat family @zoos_sa Including Michael Jackson (or Snowy) the resident colour changing meerkat! She lost the dark pigments in her fur and eventually turned white as she aged.
