This gorgeous mother and baby are a great reminder that its #orangutancaringweek ⁣ ⁣ Did you know that for the first two years, young orangs are entirely dependent on Mum for food and transport.⁣ ⁣ Are you supporting orangutan conservation? There are lots of zoos and animal welfare organisations around the world helping to protect and conserve these endangered animals. Check out some of the ones below as a start 👇
Common names: #zoos , #zoanthids , #buttonpolyps , #palythoas , #palys Difficulty Level:Zoanthids are extremely tolerant and a great choice for beginners due to their fast growth speed and broad range of colors. Feeding: These #corals prefer phytoplankton though their primary source of nutrition is #photosynthesis . Lighting (Level 4 to 10):Zoas will adapt to almost any type of lighting although care should be taken when moving them into higher lighting areas. Water flow: These corals do well with moderate to high water flow. Placement: Zoas are fast growers which have the ability to encroach upon most hard corals and shade them out over time. They grow toward their light source, so try to keep susceptible corals out of their path. General: These corals come in an endless variety of colors and sizes. Though they are nearly the same biologically their unique #zooxanthellae has given them endless names in reference to their color. Many of these colors are dependent on lighting conditions and will color morph under the wrong type of lighting https://captivecoral.net/portfolio/zoas-palys/ #elitereef #softcoral #beginnercoral #easycoral #reefcentral #coralreef #oceanlife #reeftank
#ThrowbackThursday to Animal Enrichment Day fun! After solving the enrichment puzzle, the Snow Monkeys are rewarded with a watermelon treat. #Enrichment , a top priority for our Animal Care staff, encourages animals’ natural behaviors, such as #hunting and #foraging , and adds excitement into their daily lives.
Hope that everyone has a great day today & a wonderful thanksgiving holiday next week 🦃 ! #fall #winter #clevelandmetroparkszoo #wolf #mexicangraywolf #photography #zoos #animals #thanksgiving #holidays #wolflodge

This hippo is asking for food. A learned behaviour as a result of regular feeding by zoo visitors which was also causing the hippos to stay in only one part of their enclosure and not make full use of the space.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Hippos naturally like to wander and graze and swim in deep water... so we worked with the zoo staff on giving them a routine more suited to these natural behaviours.⁣ ⁣ Public feeding is now regulated and the hippos are given vegetation to graze on at multiple times during the day, in different parts of their spacious habitat.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ More updates from this project on our website **Link in bio**⁣
Aren't they cute?! Donkeys were domesticated from the African wild ass around 4000BCE by Egyptian and Nubian civilisations. They were originally domesticated for use as a pack animal as they are able to carry aroubf 20-30% of their body weight. By the early 20th century, donkeys had become highly popular worldwide as working animals. The popularity of donkeys increased when the miniature donkey was imported into USA in 1929 from Sardinia and Sicily where the breed originates from. Miniature donkeys are grazing animals, meaning they mainly eat grass. The semi-arid  conditions (meaning very little rain annually) of their wild ancestor meant that they have evolved to survive on low fibre plants. Sadly, this can be a bit of a problem for domesticated donkeys like miniature donkeys who are often fed a higher fibre diet and this often leads to obesity. They can survive on a diet of straw with occasional hay and fruit/vegetable treats. #miniaturedonkeys #miniaturedonkey #donkeys #donkey #cute #cuteanimals #animals #animal #animalphotography #photography #photographer #zoos #twycrosszoo #twycross #zoo #likeforlike #followforfollow #like #follow

This is Mohu, a 4 year old female red panda who lives @brandywinezoo in Delaware. When Mohu arrived at the zoo, she was very wary of her new friend Sherman, the male red panda at the zoo. However, over time, they have developed a friendship that includes Mohu occasionally chasing Sherman around. It’s really adorable to see! Currently, there is no plan for the two to breed, so Mohu is on birth control pills. #redpanda #redpandas #redpandasofinstagram #firefox #panda #pandas #pandasofinstagram #lesserpanda #butnotlesser #brandywinezoo #wilmington #wilmingtonde #wilmingtondelaware #delaware #zoo #zoos #aza #savewhatyoulove #endextinction
Heading off for the weekend 👌 so just a quick goodbye to my old mate Dippy @australianreptilepark
#Repost @a_lallie_ with @get_repost ・・・ Akira Furusho, 40, was found bleeding from the neck in the tiger's cage and died shortly after. The 5 year old male #Tiger named Riku, was sedated with a tranquilliser. “We plan not to kill Riku and continue to keep it because the bereaved family asked us to do so," said a zoo official. _ RIP to this poor man and my thoughts go out to his family who in spite of their heartache and grief are able to see what society can’t - that it’s not the tiger’s fault so we can’t kill an animal for doing what’s in their nature. _ Shame on the #Zoo for not having the correct safety measures in place that would have prevented this incident and also shame on them for existing in the first place as #CaptivityIsCruel and serves no #Conservation purpose. _ Side note - all of the articles on this story keep referring to the #WhiteTiger as a ‘rare, endangered species’. I just want to address that as it’s inaccurate. #WhiteTigers are a variant of the orange #BengalTiger sub-species and owe their colour to a recessive gene. The last known free-ranging white tiger was shot by a #Hunter in India in 1958. _ Nowadays, all white tigers exist in #Captivity and they’re all INBRED (father to daughter, mother to son, brother to sister etc), which has resulted in eyesight problems and deformities. _ #Zoos and cub-petting facilities only inbreed them for NOVELTY purposes not to ‘save a rare, endangered species’ (the lies they spread) because #Nature doesn’t favour white tigers, which is why the odds of one being born is 1 in 10,000. _ Why? Because they can’t camouflage in the jungles of India. They’d stand out, struggle to stalk and catch prey and starve. Whenever you see a white tiger, just know that it’s NOT conservation. It’s just humans messing with nature for profit and greed. _ Caption @a_lallie_ #a_lallie_

I feel so lucky that my parents took me to the zoo when I was little. My trips there presented me with seemingly fantastical worlds that I could almost touch. While I definitely understand many arguments against zoos, I think this picture presents a good argument for zoos. Their curious looks are unsurprisingly very similar. 👀

Beobachten der ausgewilderten Schleiereulen im Zoo Dortmund Am 5. Oktober haben wir vier Schleiereulen auf dem Heuboden einer alten Scheune im Zoo Dortmund ausgewildert. Ich habe eine Wildkamera angebracht, um die Schleiereulen nach der Auswilderung beobachten zu können. So können wir feststellen, ob die Jungeulen sich dauerhaft in der Scheune ansiedeln oder wie lange sie dortbleiben, ehe sie sich womöglich woanders ein geeignetes Revier suchen. Auch können wir feststellen, ob die Schleiereulen das angebotene Futter fressen und nicht ein anderes Tier sich an diesem bedient. Regelmäßig löst auch eine Schleiereule die Wildkamera aus, wenn sie sich an der Wanne aufhält, in der sich Mäuse befinden. Für einen guten Start in ein eigenständiges Leben in der Wildnis, bietet der Zoo den Jungeulen für einige Zeit noch Mäuse an, deren Menge schrittweise reduziert wird, um die Eulen zu animieren, selbst nach Nahrung zu suchen. Drei der Schleiereulen sind in diesem Jahr im Zoo geschlüpft und aufgewachsen, die vierte Eule wurde verwaist aufgefunden und bei einem Tierarzt abgeben. #Zoolotse #Artenschutz #Schleiereule #Eule #Wildkamera #ZooDortmund #Zoo #Zoos #Auswilderung #ZoocialMedia

Thank you my friend Apollo @drivenbythechiefdeity for using all your amazing talent to help the animals.💛 _ In today’s supposedly civilized society, non-human animals are treated as legal property just like human slaves, and their owners are authorized to subject them to many forms of barbaric cruelty, all in the name of profit, convenience or pleasure. _ Billions upon billions of sentient beings are the victims of our most extreme violence, and it is consumers around the world who create the demand for this, even though the majority of them would never dream of participating in such violence themselves. It is time we acknowledged that other animals are no more meant to be our possessions than are people with different colored skin, women, children, or any other living beings. They are individuals with feelings similar to ours, who value their lives, feel pain, fear death, and have a right to live free from oppression. _ Civilization is not a state of rest. Our society’s values and ethics are an evolving phenomenon, and the refinement of our culture is an ongoing process of learning to discern right from wrong and justice from injustice. What will humanity be in another 150 years, or 50, or even 5 for that matter? What wrongs do we currently condone that will make us shudder when we look back on them from a more enlightened future? Legally sanctioned violence against the innocent… Living beings bought and sold like inanimate objects… The fundamental rights of some sacrificed for the gratification of others… Whoever the victims are, these actions remain the marks of a yet-to-be civilized society, and they taint ours today just as they did every era of the past. _ We must be willing to examine the biases and bigotries of the present, and see them with the same critical eyes we use to view humanity’s heinous crimes of the past.  Until we do, we will remain trapped by our ignorance and prejudice, locked in an age that is much darker than the one we just may be on the brink of stepping into. www.befairbevegan EMBRACE VEGANISM 🌱 Video @drivenbythechiefdeity @peta 🙏 _ #animals #animalsofig #animalsofinstagram #Pittsburgh #Cincinnati #Miami #zoos #animalliberation
#ringtailedlemur #madagascar #STAMPitout (Stop the Trade & Abuse of Monkeys as Pets) One of the #lemurs in the #malagasy exhibit came from the pet trade and couldn't come out with the others for the three hours the public are allowed in the enclosure as she saw humans as competitors and would attack the 'rival troupe' for trespassing. She had bonded with her humans as a baby but when she reached adolescence started showing these normal behaviours that were inconvenient and dangerous in the home environment, luckily they offered her to monkey world to be with her own kind. #monkeyworldaperescuecentre in #dorset most of the #primates there have been rescued from horrible conditions around the world and now live at the sanctuary in social groups with enrichment and appropriate diets as ambassadors for the global problems that surround #apes #gibbons #lemur and #monkeys of all shapes and sizes. One problem is the #exoticpettrade - It is legal to keep monkeys as #pets in the UK and the regulations that govern private owners is nowhere near as strict as those applied to #zoos where the organisations are legally required to meet the individual mental and physical needs required by each species as close as possible to how they would live in their natural environment. I think this is wrong, if you agree you can join #monkeyworld in their petition by writing to the UK Minister of State and send a copy to the Secretary of State. There is a template to copy in the notes section of their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Monkey-World-Ape-Rescue-Centre-Official-Facebook-Page-140302599316655/ Or you can copy and paste the link below that should go straight to the page: https://www.facebook.com/notes/monkey-world-ape-rescue-centre-official-facebook-page/sample-letter-to-support-the-stampitout-campaign/2388594031154156/ You can find out more about the #animalcharity on their website, or their social media pages. http://www.monkeyworld.org/ @twitter.com /MWApeRescue #aperescue #animalrescue #monkeyrescue #monkeysarenotpets #education #primatecharity #keepwildlifewild #conservation #daysout #familydayout #animallover #positivecultivation
You’ll love a #zoo ! Or something like that....

PSA🔊 I pray that you begin to see things for what they truly are, and not for what we have been taught by previous ignorant generations... It is okay to admit that we were wrong. It is okay to want change. It is okay to want to do better. It is okay to care for other living beings, momma earth and your mental/physical health. It is okay to not want to be part of the suffering of other beings. Let’s learn better, so we can do better. #chooselove #choosepeace #choosecompassion #liveandletlive #GoVegan _ 📸: @the.veganvibe 💚
This porcupine is exploring its new tunnel - perfect for seeking shade and moving away from the visiting public.⁣ ⁣ Swipe left to see the before and after pics showing the positive changes made to the porcupine enclosure at this zoo we've been working with - it now has multiple tunnels and hideaways and lots of soft substrates for digging and foraging (which porcupines ❤ to do!) ⁣⁣ The zoo staff have been really thinking about individual species needs and making improvements so the animals can explore their natural behaviours...like digging, foraging, socialising and playing....⁣ ⁣⁣ Read all the highlights from this project on our website **link in bio**
Last post from #tarongawesternplainszoo I swear, although could probably put together a few more. Can't say enough how good of a place this is. Very open in a great setting. Well laid out and easy to get around by a variety of means. But most importantly a great mix of animals that are all well cared for and have plenty of space.

Another collection from day 2 at #tarongawesternplainszoo As well as plenty of enclosures with many different species, there is also a number of locals that live in the park and seem to be doing pretty well. The peacock that appears to live around the visitor centre/cafe area is a clear crowd favourite, while the ibis (bin chickens) are in good numbers also. #zoo #zoos #tarongazoo #animals #animalsofinstagram #birds #birdsofinstagram #ibis #binchicken #beardie #beardeddragon #beardeddragonsofinstagram #skink #reptilesofinstagram #reptiles #nikond3400 #nikon #dadlyfe

Day 2 at #tarongawesternplainszoo today. The price of admission actually covers 2 dsys and to cover the whole place, including any talks or short tours you want to take. Well worth while. These few pics are of the Hippopotamus talk we went to this morning. The keeper (Nick) was excellent and was well across the details required. He even managed to field some questions, including a couple from the child that may not have been altogether relevant. #zookeeper #zoo #zoos #tarongazoo #hippo #hippopotamus #animals #animalsofinstagram #hipposofinstagram #nikond3400 #nikon #dadlyfe
