Why palm-free? Here are two reasons. Orangutans play a significant role in the health of the ecosystem. Orangutans eat and their droppings spread  seeds, making these beautiful animals key to the health of the rainforest. Thousands of orangutans are killed each year due to deforestation. Look for products that only use sustainable palm-oil or skip palm-oil all together. @saynotopalmoilnow ・・・ Photo by @FransLanting Two orphaned orangutans are clinging to each other at a rehab center in northern Borneo. Orangutans are the last great apes that survive in Asia. They live only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra, and they are endangered due to the massive destruction of their forest habitat. Nearly half of all orangutans, a staggering 150,000 in all, vanished from Borneo during the last 15 years. Orangutans are also victims of the illegal pet trade—babies are captured by poachers who often kill their mothers to to get their hands on the young ones. It is imperative that we protect the forests orangutans depend on to insure that our close relatives on the tree of life will be with us beyond our own lifetime. I welcome you to support the organizations that are in the front lines of protecting orangutans. @World_Wildlife and @WildAid need your help. Follow us @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more encounters with orangutans and other endangered animals around the world. @leonardodicaprio @leonardodicapriofdn  #borneo #family #twins #orphans #endangered #wildlifeplanet
Curious fact: It’s difficult to know precisely how many #hawksbillturtle exist but research suggests that there are only 5 populations world-wide, made up of around 8,000 turtles in total, and with only 1,000 females nesting annually. Sadly, this beautiful creature is the most #endangered species of turtle and is the 4th most endangered species on our top 10 list. #savetheturtles Have you been diving with this rare beauties? .  Congratulations to @sophie_doell for this cute shot of a juvenile hawksbill turtle taken for a conservation program on the Maledives . Please make sure to follow her! .

#repost @worldanimalnews with @get_repost ・・・ Federal safeguards for greater #yellowstone ecosystem #grizzlybears were reinstated last night after a judge ruled that the @realdonaldtrump administration’s decision to strip #endangeredspeciesact protections from the population was illegal.👏🐻 - The decision spares the grizzlies from planned #trophyhunts that were scheduled to begin this fall in #wyoming and #idaho, for the first time in more than 40 years. The now blocked hunts would have allowed for up to 23 #bears to be killed outside of Yellowstone National Park. - In August 2017, the @usfws removed the Yellowstone-region grizzly bear population from the federal #endangered and #threatened species list. - “People around the world will applaud the decision to again protect Yellowstone’s beloved grizzly bears under the Endangered Species Act,” said Andrea Santarsiere, a senior attorney with the @centerforbiodiv in a statement. “Facing ongoing threats and occupying a fraction of their historic range, grizzly bears are nowhere near recovery. These beautiful and beleaguered animals certainly shouldn’t be shot for cheap thrills or a bearskin rug.” 🐻💛 - Read More: 🌍👉 www.WorldAnimalNews.com @worldanimalnews @peace_4animals
#repost @natgeowild with @get_repost ・・・ Photo by @FransLanting Cheetahs are the most vulnerable of the world’s big cats, with cub mortality as high as 95 percent, often due to predation by lions and hyenas. But a small number of cheetah females are so good at raising cubs that they defy the odds and we can call them “supermoms.” Here in the grasslands of Kenya’s Maasai Mara one remarkable supermom scans the horizon for trouble with a cub next to her.

Brown bear/grizzly smell and dig for clams. They open them with their powerful claws and eat the meat inside. Sony a99ii
Eucalyptus rhodantha (Rose Mallee) ‘The Rose Mallee is a low spreading mallee that grows up to four metres high with smooth greyish brown stems and bluish green branches. The flowers are large, growing up to 7.5 centimetres across and are bright red to pink in colour.  The flowers are pollinated by several species of birds and small mammals including the White-fronted Honeyeater (Phildonyris albifrons) and the Honey Possum (Tarsipes rostratus). The fruit of the Rose Mallee is woody and contains dark brown winged seeds. The Rose Mallee flowers from March to November each year.’
