I knew that if I failed I wouldn't regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying. — Jeff Bezos A photo of George Adamson atop Kora Rock in northern Kenya. I think Jeff Bezos’ quote matches perfectly with George’s pioneer accomplishments with wild lions. Photo Credits Unknown.

My friends, let's respect life, nature and all creatures around us 🌎 🌿✌️ . #Repost @nepajm ・・・ @nepajm has received two reports of the capture Hawksbill turtles in Alligator Pond last week. Hawksbill turtles are listed as critically endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List, which means that the species face an extremely high risk of becoming extinct in the near future. All four species of sea turtles that nest on Jamaican beaches, including the Hawksbill, are protected under the Wildlife Life Protection Act (WLPA). Under sections 6 and 6A of the WLPA, individuals found guilty of hunting or being in possession (of a whole or part) of any protected animal are liable to pay a maximum fine of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000.00) or face a term of imprisonment not exceeding twelve months. Please note that the term ‘hunt’ means to “kill, capture or wilfully molest by any method” as well as “any attempt to kill, capture or molest ant animal or bird.” #ProtectSeaTurtles #PreserveEnvironment #ProtectWildLife #RacingExtinction at Montego Bay, Jamaica

Being in the presence of such an incredible animal is nothing short of awe inspiring. If it wasn’t for a combined effort between governments and NGOs these sentient beings might have been wiped off the face of the earth. Sir David Attenborough asked the question ”are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?” You can all answer that question for yourselves.

🖤 Meet the Tanzanian tailless whip scorpion. You might remember this kind of animal from the Harry Potter films when, in the Goblet of Fire, it demonstrated the unforgivable curses. Whip scorpions use their long, modified legs to sense the world around them. They like to stay in one spot but can move quickly if disturbed. The species photographed here is from the Butterfly Pavilion at the Albuquerque BioPark in New Mexico and is one-year-old, although they can live up to ten years. The Pavilion is working to bring more attention to understudied and misunderstood arthropods and arachnids in order to create empathy and concern for their habitats around the world.

#Repost @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.

Asian #elephants are listed as "Endangered" and African elephants are listed as "Vulnerable" on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. One of the main reasons are deaths for trade in poached #ivory In Sri Lanka there are less than 400 registered elephants and in the last 100 years the 50% of the population has been lost.

#WorldElephantDay - Mwashoti (in this photo) is my foster elephant! Read some of his story below. ❤️ Elephants need our help. Find out how you can foster an orphaned elephant too at @dswt 🐘 #Repost @dswt ・・・ Mwashoti’s current status is pure bliss! This brave little bull has come so far since he nearly lost his foot to a snare in 2015. Today, he’s taking strides towards a life in the wild at our Umani Springs Reintegration Unit — and he couldn’t be part of a more supportive family to help him along the way. Murera, who suffered a similarly traumatic leg injury at a young age, has appointed herself his stand-in mother. The rest of the herd is very sympathetic about his condition; they’ll either slow down so he doesn’t tire or pick routes that he can easily traverse. He’s even making wild friends; during a recent jaunt in the Kibwezi Forest, he encountered some tiny babies who were very eager to play with him! • To foster Mwashoti, click the link in our bio or visit: thedswt.org/mwashoti • • • Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust / Freya Dowson #DSWT #Mwashoti #MwashotiDSWT #elephants #whyilovekenya #kenya #nairobi #dswtnursery #africa #Murera #MureraDSWT #umanisprings #kibweziforest #umanispringsreintegrationunit #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #nairobinationalpark #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #endangered #worthmorealive #bekindtoelephants #africa #bethelight #August #summer #compassion

💙 Hermit crabs are crustaceans. They have jointed limbs, claws, a hard exoskeleton, eyes on stalks, and two sets of antennae. Crabs interact with each other and are often found in large groups. Marine hermit crabs live in the ocean and land hermit crabs live primarily on land. The hermit crab is not like other crabs. The hermit crab’s abdomen does not have a hard covering. To protect the abdomen, a hermit crab inhabits an empty snail shell. The shell also stores water for the crab. Hermit crabs have gills that need to remain moist in order for them to breath.

🙏🏼🖤 Repost @whalesanctuaryproject ・・・ UPDATES on J50 / Scarlet and J35 / Tahlequah: The team spent several hours with J50 / Scarlet on Saturday (8/11), watching her behavior and interaction with members of J pod. Researchers from University of Washington observed her swimming with the pod while trying to collect a fecal sample. Later the response team watched her fall as much as 1 kilometer (~1/2 mile) behind against a strong tidal current. Biologists were concerned that they did not see her eat, even in a prime foraging area off San Juan Island. A charter company reported seeing her catch a fish earlier in the day, and we are following up to find out more. Center for Whale Research confirmed J35/Tahlequah is no longer carrying the calf and appears to be in good condition. More updates to come - link in @whalesanctuaryproject bio.

Elephants are no suffering only because of poaching. They suffer when you ride them, bath them or interact with them in a NO natural way. Be an informed tourist! It is so worthy! #WorldElephantDay ♥️🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘♥️ Don’t waste your money, invest it in the right places. In Asia search for @elephantnaturepark ・・・ The tourism industry causes immense suffering for elephants. But our new research shows that with high risk, low paid jobs, elephant trainers – known as mahouts – are losing out too. This World Elephant Day, do the right thing for elephants and mahouts, and only visit high welfare venues.

@happystampede

I was thinking of post/caption ideas for #worldelephantday2018 and when I opened instagram I came across these words (and photo) from @donalboyd — I think his paragraph beautifully conveys the magical essence of these beings 🐘 : - 🔸"Emotion”⠀ Noun: a strong feeling deriving from one's circumstances, mood, or relationships with others.⠀ ⠀ I think too often we as humans inadvertently project our own likeness onto others in an attempt to relate. Describing someone or something as, “they feel like we do,” or when extended to another species, “just like humans they feel sad,” or “happy”, or “excited” … as I often have heard such terms used to describe Elephants. And I too in the past had also thought of all Elephant behavior as “human-like” … but now since spending countless hours with them, witnessing firsthand how they interact, I’ve learned that Elephants, although we may share some common emotions, are not at all like humans in countless ways… ⠀ Elephants are incredibly unique, possessing a vast repertoire of their own distinct and profound emotional tendencies. Their happiness, sadness, excitement, and melancholy is not our own, and we shouldn’t overlook their own emotions that make their species distinct. ⠀ In honor of #WorldElephantDay, I want to celebrate the individuality of Elephants. Of their unmistakable sentience. And of Elephantemotions. ⠀ Pictured here is Sizi (left) and Matebele (right) … two rescued Elephants at the @zen_wildislife nursery in Zimbabwe.⠀ ⠀ There’s just so much more than our own familiar human-emotions to be observed in their eyes, described by their disposition, and embodied within their minds. As humans, we must do everything in our power to protect their exceptionally diverse personalities, an asset to our planet.🔸⠀ ⠀

Today is #WorldElephantDay! 🐘 - First photo: The African elephant, it’s estimated that 100 are killed each day by poachers for their ivory, meat and body parts, leaving less than 400,000 remaining in the wild today. (Photo by @donalboyd) - Second photo: The Asian elephant is an endangered species with less than 40,000 remaining worldwide. Asian elephants are killed each year due to severe habitat loss for palm oil, poaching for their ivory tusks, meat and body parts while baby elephants are captured from the wild and sold into the tourism industries like tourist parks and circuses. - Please help me save them. 1) Don’t support riding elephants, circuses, or any other way they are being exploited. 2) Make sure to check your labels when you’re shopping. Do not purchase anything that contains palm oil. - - We can all do our part to save these beautiful animals from disappearing for good 🐘🙏 #JoinTheHerd

Yogi turtle 🕉️🐢 or pond turtle, Trachemys scripta flowing on a log at the Palms pond. I come out to this pond usually after the gym to be silent and meditate on the idea that everything I see is an extension and reflection of myself. That everything in the pond is functioning as one beautiful tiny ecosystem. The baby ducks jump across the lily pads, and the lily pads hold the ducks up. The fish are eating the lily pads, and new ones are blooming all over. If you're quiet and still enough, turtles start poking their heads out and climbing on the logs, and the logs hold up the turtles. I'm watching on a bank as the bank is holding me up. Yesterday I was so frustrated at a swarm of love bugs that invaded the pool area. These bugs live a brief life, flying attached to their mates the whole time, but it felt like an invasion. I had to go do something else, only to realize later that that was the point. That was me. Nothing happens to you. By acting instinctually, you're doing it all. Isn't that incredible? #youreit #alanwatts #pondturtle #turtle #lilypad #meditate #sarasota #florida #racingextinction #ourcommonhome #photoark #taurisanosark #lifeisbeautiful at Sarasota, Florida

A gray whale in Ensenada on its way to Baja Sur ☆ There were a handful of them the day we went whale watching. Massive and beautiful. #graywhale #greywhale #whalewatching #ensenada #bajacalifornia #mexico #amongthewild #pacific #pacificocean #pacificwildlife #racingextinction #ourcommonhome #photoark #taurisanosark at Ensenada, Baja California
