¿Te has preguntado por qué mientras la mayoría de animales quieren pasar desapercibidos, otros claramente quieren ser vistos? Pues a esto se le conoce como selección sexual. Este Mosquero Real despliega sus hermosas plumas con la finalidad de atraer a una hembra, aunque ésto implique hacerse visible también para sus depredadores. Todo tiene su precio.

E quando um bebê tatu-galinha aparece, a gente fica como ?! Esse foi resgatado e levado para o Centro de Triagem de Animais Silvestres do Ibama-RJ. Os tatus são vítimas constantes dos caçadores para o consumo de sua carne. No entanto, além de essa ser uma prática cruel, ainda traz um grande risco para a saúde pois o consumo de carne de caça está associado a diversas doenças! Ele é lindo e queremos um futuro de vida livre para todos os tatus 😍 Foto: @dani_f_aires #amarélibertar #institutovidalivre #soltura #ibama #bra#brazilianwildlife #wildliferescue #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeplanet #illegalwildlifetrade #wildlifeillegaltrade #wildlifetrafficking #biodiversity #rehabilitation #faunabrasileira #armadillo #tatu #tatugalinha #sabiálaranjeira #resgate #animalsupport #vidalivre #stophunting #contraacaça #releasing #rio #brazil #free #tráficodeanimaissilvestres

Please do not ride elephants in Thailand or anywhere else. Instead, visit them, watch them, enjoy their presence and beauty by letting them be themselves in the company of other happy and cared for elephants at Elephant Nature Park, located north of Chiang Mai #ele#elephant> #elephant #conservation #elephantnaturepark #biodiversity #ecology #mam#mammal> #mammal #tha#thai #chiangmai #thai #chang #ani#animals #animal #biology #travel #explore #wanderlust #nature #planetearth #savetheelephants #asianelephant #adventure

“The collapse of our reefs is an early, yet urgent warning of the threat posed to all ecosystems." ~ @jefforlowski, Director of @cha@chasingcoral (I highly suggest you watch this documentary if you haven’t already!!!) 🐟🐡🐠 • • • There is hope in and amongst the many undesirable occurrences that we hear about on a day-to-day basis - the research on the 2,300km-long Great Barrier Reef being one of them. With 2/3 of the reef having already been devastated by bleaching due to rising water temperatures over the last two years, scientists have one breakthrough that may help save them. Once a year, the Great Barrier Reef undergoes a spectacular synchronized spawning of corals where scientists will harvest coral eggs and sperm which together with millions of larvae will be used to reseed the reef sections that have already been destroyed. • Another project is one where scientists have identified 112 reefs that can perform as reproductive reefs for the rest, largely thanks to their ability to produce and distribute healthy coral larvae with natural ocean currents. These kinds of projects can make a big difference in preserving our oceans reefs. • *The U.S. directly benefits from coral reef services – including fisheries, tourism and coastal protection with an economic value of over $3.4 billion each year. • There are many things individuals can also do to have a positive impact on coral reefs. Things such as reducing pollution by walking, biking, taking the bus and disposing of trash correctly. Conserving water can also help my reducing runoff and wastewater into our oceans. By reducing or eliminating the use of single-use plastics and of course by spreading the word. • • 📸 by Airpano, Australia Geographic & @chasingcoral; in that order. 🎥 by @unenvironment 🔁 from *@noaa • • • #startwith1thing #coral #reef #living #animals #nature #ocean #blue #conservation #sea #save #edu#educate #worthmorealive #overfishing #oceanwarming #bleaching #thinkblue #habitat #species #climateaction #awareness #educate #racingextinction #environment #biodiversity #documentary #bethechange #fish #wildlife #greatbarrierreef

A hybrid of Galapagos Giant Tortoise (Chelonoidis species complex) rests on a tortoise farm in Floreana Island. After being extinct in the wild, researchers try to reconstruct the Floreana’s species from selective breeding of the hybrid animals found in Isabela Island transported by humans. The extinction of the Floreana species in the mid-19th century has been attributed to the combined pressures of hunting for the penal colony on the relatively small island, the conversion of the grazing highlands into land for farming and fruit plantations, and the introduction of feral mammals. . Shot by @luksth assisting @thomaspeschak, on assignment for @natgeo magazine for the June 2017 story "Galápagos: Life in Balance". Thanks to @ilcp_photographers.

As many Blog readers are well aware, southern Florida is the home of the only breeding colony of Pumas east of the Mississippi River.............Known locally as "Florida Panthers", the 100-230 big Cats that now live there were on the verge of "blinking out" until Fish and Wildlife folks transplanted some Texas Pumas into the population, reinjuvenating the population with an array of new genes..............With automobile deaths mounting, the Pumas really have needed to find additional room to roam north of the Caloosahatchee River(north of Naples)...........And finally, trail cameras revealed this year the first evidence of a mother Puma and her cubs living north of this river..............Hopefully, the big cats continue to multiply, spreading out amongst the remaining undisturbed habitat that still exists in northern Florida and beyond. #wolves #coyotes #cougars #naturerocks #wildlife #bears #biodiversity #mountainlions #carnivores 🌲☀️

#Repost @natgeo ・・・ Video by @joe@joelsartore | The Northern Bald Ibis is a critically endangered species that is highly social and congregates in large flocks. At one time two separate populations existed-- a non-migratory Northern African/European population and a migratory Middle-eastern population. It has been of special focus of both European Zoos and US Zoos to keep a healthy captive population with the intent of preserving the species. Many cultural myths are associated with this species and some scholars believe this species was the representative of the Ancient Egyptian God of Knowledge, Thoth. With the conflicts in Syria and other portions of the Middle East, that migratory population has been under extreme pressure and was feared to have been lost. However, recent sightings have confirmed that a few birds still remain. The good news is that it’s been confirmed that the Northern African population has been growing and is starting to form satellite colonies. The @HoustonZoo, where this bird was photographed, supports this species by being an active member of the SSP (species Survival Plan) and, along with the other Zoos in this program, works to safeguard the species for future generations. To see a portrait of this bird, check out @joelsartore! . . #ibis #birds #mythical #eqyptiangodofknowledge #strangeanimals #weirdnature #nature #conservation #biodiversity #animalfacts #wildlife #wildlifephotography #natgeo #savetogether #photoark

It was recently announced that the EU (@europeanparliament) and ACP Group of States are to invest $60 million in the Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management (BIOPAMA) Programme which provides high-quality data on the status of protected areas, poaching and illegal logging. The money will help to conserve the unique biodiversity of many African countries and also support livelihoods and achieve sustainable development.

“A report compiled by conservation organization World Wildlife Fund (WWF) found that meat-based diets are responsible for the loss of 60 percent of global biodiversity. The report, titled “Appetite for Destruction,” revealed that many species are soon to be extinct—if not already extinct—due to the planting of monocrops used as animal feed. “The huge amount of land needed to produce protein-rich feeds such as soy is having devastating effects on species and their habitats,” the report said, “especially in vulnerable areas such as the Amazon, the Congo Basin, and the Himalayas.” The report poses that humans are consuming far more protein than is recommended and predicts that if global demand for animal protein continues to grow, the agriculture industry would need to increase soy production by an unsustainable 80 percent. “In a world where more and more people adopt a Western diet—one that’s high in meat, dairy, and processed food,” the report said, “producing crops to feed our livestock is putting an enormous strain on our natural resources and is a driving force behind wide-scale biodiversity loss.” The report identified a large number of animals whose populations are threatened by crop expansion, including giant pandas, cheetahs, jaguars, giraffes, and snow leopards. To remedy the issue, the WWF recommends consuming more plants, adding that feeding plants to animals is an inefficient way to obtain protein.” - @vegnews #cowspiracy #biodiversity #loss #extinction #animalagriculture

You might recognize this infamous mushroom from the #Mario video game franchise. In the video game, the mushroom's name is #Toad, but it's real name is the #AmanitaMuscaria commonly known as the #fly agaric or fly amanita. Ironically, in the video game eating this mushroom gives you #strength, however, this mushroom is extremely #poisonous and should never be consumed. #mushrooms #popculture #mainstream #poisonousmushrooms #mushroomspotting #wildlife #forest #biodiversity #redmushrooms #mariofranchise #mushroomphoto #mushroomphotography #fungus #forestfinds #mushroomsociety #mushroomhunting #mariopower
