When good triumphs over evil. The upper beak of this bald eagle was destroyed after someone shot her in the face. But a great rehab team gave her a second chance by creating and giving her a bionic beak. Wonderful science 👏 --- Repost from @analiaottavi_ via 📹 @happiness4all --- @1classlifestyle - You Are Only A Dream Away... 👍

I’ve got a bleeding heart for animals and the more I try to do and the more I see, the more it breaks. I try to do what I can though, when I can. Even if it’s looking for a stray, fostering a dog, or feeding the birds. Fight the good fight and remember God loves the birds of the air, the fish of the sea and the animals on land. . #animallover #animallovers #animalliberation #animalrights #animalrescue #dogrescue #doglovers #wildliferescue #deepthought #deepthoughts #shortpoem #prose #quotesaboutlife #bleedingheart #poetslife #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poetsociety #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #godislove #femalerapper #femaleartist #loveoneanother #poetryslam

Ms. B, Queen of the night, says Hello every morning when her enclosure gets cleaned. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and release animals back to the wild. Unfortunately, not all animals are suitable for release and they get a permanent home at our education center.

Please be a voice for the voiceless. Link in @cri@cri@cristinakitty11 bio 💔 ・・・ Although less widely known than Canada's commercial seal slaughter, the annual massacre in Namibia is equally cruel and violent. Namibia is the only country in the Southern Hemisphere where massacring seals is still legal. South Africa banned the practice almost 30 years ago and PETA wants Namibia to do the same. _ Please send an e-mail to the Namibian High Commissioner to the UK to let him know that it's unacceptable to allow this cruelty to continue - LINK IN @cristinakitty11 BIO ☝ (Source: PETA UK) Via @cristinakitty11 #seal #namibia #ani#animalcruelty #animalabuse #wildlife #wildanimals #wildandfree #wildliferescue #worthfightingfor #racingextinction #startwith1thing #awareness #education #conservation #compassion #protection #rescue #animal #animallovers #animalsofinstagram #animalwelfare #animalprotection #africa

Shot and left to die a slow and painful death. This poor young mother was called in by a MOP. Paralysed and laying in the same spot for days, there was a big hole in the dirt where she had been desperately trying to crawl away. Her young baby in the pouch covered in mud from her mother attempts to crawl to safety. Sadly the decision to end mums suffering and yet another ophaned Joey joins the overcrowded shelters but will be in the best hands of Christine Gilmore at Coopers animal refuge #wildlife #kangaroo #macedonranges #coopersanimalrefuge #bubba #holisticpettherapy #wildliferescue

It’s midnight and I’ve just taken in a new patient. A Leveret. A leveret is a baby Hare, in this case the fast declining European Brown Hare. Hares do not bear their young below ground in a burrow as do other leporids, but rather in a shallow depression or flattened nest of grass called a form. Young hares are adapted to the lack of physical protection, relative to that afforded by a burrow, by being born fully furred and with eyes open. They are hence precocial, and are able to fend for themselves soon after birth. By contrast, the related rabbits are altricial, having young that are born blind and hairless. If you should come across a leveret that apparently looks like they have been abandoned PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH THEM. It is quite natural for leverets, even as young as a few days old, to be left unattended for long periods of time. Unlike rabbits, leverets are born and live above the ground and so are very vulnerable. The mother will visit her leverets to feed them once or maybe twice a day usually early morning and at dusk. During the rest of the day the leveret will remain very still so as to be undetected by predators. It is very unwise to pick up a leveret just to have a closer look as the mother may abandon her leveret if she were to detect an unfamiliar scent on him however, should you come across a leveret with obvious injuries you may have to remove it and seek help and advice as soon as possible from a wildlife friendly vet and or from someone with experience. Success rates for hand rearing in captivity are as low as 36%. Wish us luck!! #leveret #hare #brownhare #wildliferescue #wildliferehab

Blustery days are not good days to learn to fly, eh?! 🦉 This beautiful ball of fluff spread her wings on a very windy day and instantly sailed out of her nest despite not being ready! While her landing was soft and she had no injuries there was no way to get her back in the tree with Mom and sibling 😢 🦉 The action took place just one campsite over and luckily Mother Great Horned Owl & babies were being photographed at the time by a local birder. After much concern and ado the Rangers called in the local wildlife rescue service. Baby Great Horned Owl will be rehabilitated and released when ready. 🦉 Mother and other sibling appear to be fine. #BlusteryDayDisaster #thestruggleisreal #greathornedowl #owlet #blusteryday #flightlessons #wildliferescue #lifeontheroad #rvlife

With its beautiful and distinct emerald head, the male mallard is perhaps the most recognizable duck species in North America. Another but not so well known distinct feature of the male mallard is the curly tail feathers on top of their tail. #hopeforwildlife #HFW #wildliferescue #wildliferehab #ducks #curlytail

Spring is definitely on its way, this morning we received our first Easter bunnies. These two little girls were brought into someones house by the cat. Both have bite injuries and so will need antibiotics. Both have taken a feed (one much better then the other) #wildliferescue #rabbit #babyanimals #rescueandrelease #kittens

THE TALE OF A THICK-TAILED BUSHBABY: This feisty Greater bushbaby (Otolemur crassicaudatus) was captured in Pretoria through the combined efforts of a community. Not endemic to Pretoria, it was likely that he was an escaped pet. It took a while to capture him as he frequented various homes in the area, but an alert on the residents group ensured that the neighbourhood were tracking his movements. He was entering homes to opportunistically seek company and/or food. Once caught, he was brought in to our hospital where he was sedated to be fully examined by Dr K and Nicci. In good condition and health, he weighed in at 1.6kg. After being observed for a few days, he was transported to a primate rehabilitation centre, where he will undergo rehabilitation to become fully wild and commence his journey to freedom. We have had many endemic Lesser Bushbabies (Galago moholi), but never a giant of a bushbaby (Otolemur crassicaudatus). They're the largest of the bushbaby species, nocturnal and arboreal (tree-dwellers) preferring woodland, savannas, dense forests and bushes. They love acacia gum and will live in areas where this is readily available. From Limpopo, Mpumalanga and Natal, the colour on their dense coats vary according to their specific habitat and region – ranging from dark grey to brown. Please contact us for advice when faced with a situation like this and do not handle or try to capture any wild animal, no matter how cuddly. We treat indigenous wildlife, free of charge, relying solely on the community for donations and support. ____________________________________________________ #keepingitwild #makingadifference #bushbaby #thicktailedbushbaby #greaterbushbaby #cut#cutenessload #cuteness #donations #donationsneeded #wildlife #wildlifeonearth #wildlifevet #wildlifephoto #wildliferehab #wildliferescue #picoftheday #animalphoto #animalphotography #animallover #animalrehab #animaladdicts #vet #vetstagram #vetsofinstagram #thisisafrica #patientoftheday

Yesterday our friends @haws_waukesha let us know they would be bringing over a Red-tailed Hawk that had been hit by a vehicle…which they actually rescued from the grill of the vehicle! Mark Hess, one of the wonderful HAWS staff, went out on the rescue after they had received a call that this hawk was found stuck in a grill of a vehicle. The bird was hit on I-94 at 70mph, but the driver did not know he hit it. He drove to work and a co-worker saw it sticking out of the grill of his Suburban. The bird was imbedded tail first in the grill with only the head and two wings exposed. Mark was able to cut the grill apart to safely extract the hawk. The hawk was pretty calm during the ordeal, most likely being in shock. The adult male Red-tailed Hawk was brought to us at the Wildlife In Need Center and during his initial exam we were surprised to find he had no fractured bones. However, he does have spinal bruising and some internal trauma (which was expected). He is getting pain medication and is resting comfortably after his traumatic day yesterday. Thank you all for the #teamwork involved in saving this Red-tailed Hawk! We are hopeful for a full recovery. #wildlifeinneedcenter #wildliferehabilitation #luckyhawk #wildliferescue #redtailedhawk

Three-quarters of people in Singapore in a survey think the government is not doing enough to protect sharks and want a law in place to cut consumption and trade of shark fin. Over three-quarters of them said they would pay more for responsibly fished seafood. According to the survey by WWF-Singapore more than half of those surveyed ate less shark fin in the past 12 months. Around 82 per cent said a shark fin soup alternative would be acceptable at banquets, with most of them opting for a double-boiled soup as a substitute. Elaine Tan, CEO of WWF-Singapore, said the findings showed that the majority of the public were concerned about conservation of shark species. “It is time for business to step up and match the public’s expectations, stop selling shark fin and support sustainable seafood,” she said. Several governments in Asia have banned shark fin from being served at official functions in the past few years, including in Malaysia, China, and Hong Kong. The government of Brunei has gone further by banning all trade of shark fin, and the catching of shark species in its waters. Jonn Benedict Lu, Regional Director Asia Pacific, WildAid Shark Savers, urged Singapore to do likewise. “Many countries have already imposed a banqueting ban at official government funded functions, entertainment and dining affairs…Shark fin soup is an exotic, expensive and environmentally destructive dish,” Lu said. With the Chinese New Year the consumption of shark’s fin soup typically soars, Lu urges the Singaporeans surveyed to do their part in shark conservation. “We are appealing to the 75 per cent of Singaporeans who support government legislation to lower shark fin trade and consumption, to help us take the conservation message to dinner tables,” he said.

It's SO rewarding to see the progress this special baby has made since I got here... Seeing her learning and starting to understand things, playing for the first time... A couple of days ago I got to witness her attempting to run and jump, for the very first time!! She's learning to be social instead of screaming when you look at her, and is just starting to act like a monkey, in general... She still has a long way to go, but each little progress puts the biggest smile on my face, and hopefully someday she'll be just like the other monkeys! . . . #notapet #WoollyMonkey #Lagothrix #Primates #Mammalia #monkeys #monkeysofinstagram #monkeysofsouthamerica #animals #babyanimals #specialanimals #rescuedanimals #rescuecenter #animalcare #animalcaretaker #wildlifecare #wildlifecarer #biologist #biologistlife #wildliferescue #SouthAmerica #Peru #Amazon

Exquisite sea urchin 💜 The exquisite urchin (Coelopleurus exquisitus) is a sea urchin species found off the coast of the island of New Caledonia in the Pacific Ocean. It is an epifaunal deepwater species living at depths between 240 and 520 m (790 and 1,710 ft) and was only identified and named in 2006. The colouration and pattern of C. exquisitus is vibrant and distinctive. Examined individuals of the species show that the test is up to 35 mm (1.4 in) in diameter, with long, curved spines. These primary spikes are curved and banded with red and light green. It has large purple interambulacral regions with undulating lavender lines, while the remainder of the epithelium is coloured olive or light brown. This makes it highly sought-after by collectors, which may threaten the species. However, too little is known about the species to confirm their number. The purpose of the pigmentation, which is present in both the skin and skeleton, is also unknown, given the low light conditions of its habitat. One presented theory is that the species migrated from shallower waters and has maintained its colouring.

Will always try my best to help @dsw@dswfwildlife and the amazing work they do 🙏🏼 for anyone who's interested this is the baby from my previous post ❤️ #fuckrhinopoachers #Repost @dswfwildlife ・・・ 🦏🏀 Only a few days ago, Charlotte, or ‘Lottie’ for short, a one month old rhino calf was rescued after her mother was brutally killed for her horn. Our last post showed the truly tragic and harrowing scene when she was first discovered - we are incredibly proud to fund the brave and dedicated rapid response helicopter team who were able to rescue this innocent little rhino orphan – Read more and donate via the link in our Bio. - A donation of just £10 will fund enough fuel to keep the helicopter flying for 10 minutes. This could mean the difference between the life or death of another precious rhino. With rhino poaching incidences remaining at dangerously high and unstainable levels, these sentient species need our help, more now than ever before. - We are delighted to see how her condition and disposition has improved after her traumatic start in life, as she now begins her journey through care, rehabilitation and, when she is ready, release back into the wild. - - - Thank you @Rhino911npo #Rhino911 #FightProtectEngage #DSWF #DSWFWildlife #saveendangeredspecies #fightwildlifecrime #rhino #rhinos #saverhinos #stopthetrade #protectrhinos #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #conservation #animals #Africanwildlife #stoppoaching #weloverhinos #loverhinos #conservationheros #wildliferescue #rhinorescue #babyrhino #babyrhinos #bab#babyanimals #babyanimal #cuteanimals #cutebabyanimals

We spent the day at an animal sanctuary near Phnom Penh. They take in animals from all over Cambodia that have been illegally kept/mistreated and rerelease them to the wild where possible. This gibbon was kept chained up as a pet too long to be able to survive in the wild now so she will stay at the center. She was a real cutie and loved attention! #asianadventure #phnomtamao #wildliferescue #wildlifealliance #monkeysarentpets #monkeysofinstagram #gibbons #wildlifephotography #canon #🙈🙉🙊
