#Regram #RG @nature_org: Dan Kusnierz, the Water Resources Program Manager for the Penobscot Nation, collects water samples on the Penobscot River near Indian Island, Maine. —Photo by Bridget Besa.. The Nature Conservancy in partnership with an unprecedented array of partners, including the Penobscot Indian Nation, have come together to accomplish the goal of restoring the Penobscot River. This project is part of TNC’s Shared Conservation Agenda: Protecting Land & Water. #science #river #conservation #restoration #sunrise


#Regram #RG @leonardodicapriofdn: Today is #WorldOrangutanDay! LDF has been actively working with @wwf, @frankfurt.zoological.society, and @theorangutanproject to permanently protect 30 Hills, home of #orangutans and the last and largest remaining block of lush, lowland tropical rainforest that earned Sumatra its name – the “Emerald of the Equator."

#Regram #RG @unfoundation: “Villagers of East End in the Pig Keys plant hundreds of mangrove seedlings in the wake of hurricane Mitch. The mangroves will eventually grow tall and help anchor the shoreline, offering a natural barrier to storm surges. The Caribbean islands off the coast of Honduras and their inhabitants are particularly vulnerable to the effects of #climatechange. As the waters warm, the reefs that have sustained the Garifuna people’s way of life are vanishing from bleaching. As sea levels rise, their humble homes are flooded. And as storms grow fiercer in the late summer, they live with imminent fear. Perhaps more than just a first line of defense, these seedlings symbolize hope and resiliency for a people who face the looming threats of climate change every day.” Mangroves offer a two-for-one solution to climate change by protecting coastlines and absorbing carbon dioxide. Many countries are exploring ways to conserve and restore mangroves to help meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. This photo was shared by @macstonephoto as part of our #EyeOnClimate challenge - a campaign dedicated to raising the profile of #climatechange solutions in the lead up to the Global Climate Action Summit, #GCAS2018. How is your #EyeOnClimate? Inspire action by sharing the climate solutions you see.


#Regram #RG @paulnicklen: Alaska's Katmai National Park and Preserve is home to the largest concentration of brown bears in the world. As many bear populations around the world decline, Katmai provides some of the few remaining unaltered habitats on Earth with bountiful and sustainable populations of wild salmon – a key food source for for these powerful and awe-inspiring creatures. Wild salmon are also the foundation of a nutrient cycle that sustains this entire ecosystem and a tourism industry built on fishing and bear watching. This all could change if the proposed Pebble Mine begins construction nearby. The millions upon millions of fish that come to the region every year to spawn, the largest sockeye salmon run in the world, will be put at risk in the pursuit of gold and copper when an entire infrastructure network of pipelines, roads, and shipping lanes take over the land. #Follow @Sea_Legacy as we take an in-depth look into this region in the upcoming months.


#Regram #RG @sea_legacy: Photo by @SimonAgerPhotography // Open net Atlantic salmon farms are currently in operation throughout some of the most essential and sensitive marine habitats in British Columbia. These fish farms are full of disease and pollution and have been contributing to a decline in the health of wild salmon. Wild salmon is a foundational species to the health of surrounding ecosystems and a decline in their populations affects all other species which rely on them for survival, including humans. Indigenous people have been fighting, and putting everything on the line to protect this sacred resource for decades. Starting in 2022, fish farm tenures will need to be approved by First Nation communities before they are renewed, initiating the first step in both reconciliation with these communities and protection for wild salmon. In the meantime, by sharing your voice as well as being a conscious consumer, you can help to #GetFishFarmsOut. When purchasing fish, check if it is wild salmon and talk to your vendor about where it came from. In honour of International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples, let’s show support to ensure that wild salmon stocks are plentiful both now and for future generations.


#Regram #RG @rainforestalliance: The best way to protect the world’s forests? Keep people in them. In countries around the world, forests have remained intact precisely because local communities had long managed them effectively. These communities often farm and harvest timber on a very small scale, but keep commercial enterprises and illegal actors out. As we’ve seen in our work in Guatemala’s Maya Biosphere Reserve, if you hand forests to communities that have an incentive to keep the forest standing, and have a culture of forest-based livelihoods, it has proven to be a more effective approach to keeping the forest standing than traditional, strict protection. #rainforestalliance #followthefrog #guatemala #mayabiospherereserve #deforestation #communityforestry 📸: @sergioizquierdophoto


#Regram #RG @enricsala: Today, New Caledonia has announced the creation of four fully-protected marine reserves, safeguarding 28,000 square kilometers of pristine coral reefs and surrounding waters. In these lush coral reefs around the remote islands and atolls of the Coral Sea, the fish have seen few divers, and it’s the sharks - blacktips, whitetips, silvertips, gray reefs, nurse sharks, and others - that preside over the reefs, alongside numerous green turtles that nest in the protected Entrecasteaux Islands. Thank you New Caledonia for this gift to the planet. Take a look at our @natgeopristineseas expedition in collaboration with @waittfoundation, which in 2013 conducted some of the first filming and scientific surveys of these remote reefs, informing their protection - link on my profile.

Dataka lives in a small community of seaweed farmers who are threatened by rising seas. The surrounding seas have risen about 7 to 10 millimeters per year since 1993, roughly three times today’s global average — and what scientists expect across much of the Pacific by the second half of this century. @adamfergusonphoto #adamfergusonphoto #globalwarming #solomonislands #risingseas #conservation


#Regram #RG @natgeotravel: Photo by @FransLanting One memorable evening I waded into a water hole in Botswana to capture a perfect reflection of a gathering of elephants at twilight with a rising full moon suspended in a luminous pink evening sky. The image has become a symbol for the primeval qualities of Botswana’s wilderness and the grandeur of elephants. I share it in recognition of World Elephant Day, August 12, to celebrate the majesty of elephants and to draw attention to the organizations that have forged a strong coalition aimed at reversing the poaching crisis that has decimated elephant populations almost everywhere. The @ElephantCrisisFund was established by @SaveTheElephants in partnership with @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn and @WildNetOrg. They support the right people in the right places and they are making a real difference. Check them out and lend your support so they can do even better. And follow us @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more intimate encounters with elephants. @ThePhotoSociety @NatGeoCreative #Elephants #Respect #Dignity #Conservation #Wonder #Naturelovers #Botswana


#Regram #RG @elephantcrisisfund: The most positive news for elephants in the last six months has been the final closure of ivory markets in China and the decision to close the Hong Kong markets over a five-year period. But that doesn’t mean the Ivory Crisis is over. Although the tide is slowly turning, much more needs to be done. A combination of visionary support, collaboration between governments and NGOs and an integrated approach is helping but we still have a long way to go in our struggle to save elephants. As we celebrate World Elephant Day, read how our valiant partners are battling the ivory crisis across Africa and Asia in our new ECF report out today by clicking on the link in the bio.

#Regram #RG @leonardodicapriofdn: Photo by @FransLanting The bald eagle is a direct beneficiary of the Endangered Species Act. America’s national bird has made a dramatic comeback as a result of the protection it gained under what many people have called the most significant legislation ever passed to protect wildlife. But now the Endangered Species Act is being reviewed in Washington DC for amendments that may significantly undermine its effectiveness to protect other species as well as it did for the bald eagle. That would be a tragedy; for eagles and for us. But it’s not a done deal yet. If you care about this, please inform yourself and support the organizations who are as vigilant as eagles to protect our wildlife. And follow @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom to learn more about the plight of wildlife around the world. @world_wildlife @nrdc_org @defendersofwildlife @sierraclub @leonardodicaprio @thephotosociety @natgeotravel @natgeocreative #endangered #eagle #conservation #wildlife


#Regram #RG @lionrecovery: This #WorldLionDay marks the one-year anniversary of the Lion Recovery Fund, which was created by @wildnetorg in partnership with the @leonardodicapriofdn. As we look back over this groundbreaking year, we know that recovery IS possible. Your support has equipped us to fund 28 conservation projects from 20 organizations across 14 countries! Check out the link in our bio to learn more about the dynamic efforts that will bring lions roaring back. Will you join us in this journey to #savelions?
