From young to old, Orangutans are the most iconic victims of the palm oil crisis. . The world's wildlife population has halved in the last 40 years. . When a supermarket attempts to highlight the impact our demand for palm oil has on just one species and what they themselves are doing to try and reduce that impact, their advert gets banned because it's "too political". . The ironic thing is, these days when something is banned everyone wants to see it. Everyone starts talking about it. Everyone starts sharing it. Hopefully, in this case, everyone takes notice. . Sumatran Orangutans like those pictured here are critically endangered, with a decreasing population, the Bornean Orangutan is endangered, also with a decreasing population. The Tapanuli orangutan, also critically endangered, is the most endangered of all great apes with no more than 800 individuals in existence. . https://youtu.be/JdpspllWI2o . . . #orangutan #icelandfoods #chesterzoo #conservation #beautifulnature #sumatra #zoophotography #zoo #zookeeper #zoology #criticallyendangered #endangeredspecies #palmoil #sumatranorangutan #cutconflictpalmoil #baby #canonphotography #zoo #saynotopalmoil #babyanimals #shots_of_animals #babies #babiesofinstagram #actfornature #instagood #worthmorealive #animalsofinstagram #instazoo #love #cute

The shocking decline of the world's tallest mammal has been dubbed the "silent extinction" due to little understanding or public outcry. The decrease in giraffe populations is attributed to extensive habitat loss and illegal poaching for bushmeat, bones, and tail hair. The United States, a major player in the giraffe trade, has imported more than 21,000 giraffe bone carvings and 3,000 skin pieces in the last decade alone. These numbers—while staggering—are not surprising partly because there are no regulatory mechanisms in place to protect giraffe under current U.S. law, despite the fact that there are fewer giraffe left than elephants. We've joined forces with other animal welfare organizations to petition for the US government to list giraffes under the Endangered Species Act. This would not only give them not only give them the protection from trade by Americans but it wwould also help raise public awareness about the plight and decline of these unique mammals. © Megan Hartley
My name is the Pygmy Hippopotamus (Choeropsis liberiensis). I am one of two members of the Hippopotamus family. I am often overlooked by my larger cousin the Common Hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius). While considerably smaller I can still grow to up to 600 pounds. I can be found in the dense forest and swamps of West Africa. I spend most of time in the water and can often be found deep within burrows, that I don’t dig myself, on the river banks. I like to live alone, unlike my cousin that lives in large groups. But like my cousin, I leave the water at night to eat for grass and other plants. The IUCN has classified me as Endangered because I am often hunted for meat and my habitat is being cut down. I believe I am #worthprotecting because I play an important role in the environment. My poop is critical to the survival of many species as it provides food for fish and other animals and nutrients for plants that allow West Africa’s forest to flourish. 📸Chuckupd | Wikimedia Commons ______________________________________ Follow @animal.insiders for more stories on the planet’s inhabitants!!! ______________________________________ #nature #naturegram #stopextinction #animallovers #animalsofinstagram #racingextinction #cuteanimals #endextinction #savethespecies #animalsofig #wildlife #lovenature #wildlifeaddicts #climatechange #protectoutplanet #wildlifephotography #conservation #awesomeearth #worthmorealive #naturelover #hippo #pygmyhippo #hippopotamus #westafrica #hungryhungryhippos
👉🏽 @lwirocrpl 👈🏽 is today’s featured chimpanzee conservation project! CRPL is an important conservation tool for primates in the DRC. They are currently looking after 81 chimpanzees and 102 monkeys of 11 different species, all of them victims of the pet trade and/or poaching. Without centres like this no confiscation of captive animals would be possible, which also makes them essential for law enforcement.

Dynasties • • The new BBC Earth wildlife series voiced by Sir David Attenborough is almost here 🙌🏾 The documentary series will be broken down into 5 episodes, each episode will follow the lives of some of our planets most iconic, but threatened species (chimpanzees, penguins, lions, painted wolves (African wild dogs) and tigers), and their epic battles to overcome the many obstacles life throws at them. Sir David Attenborough said, "What we have said is, we will show what happens. We are not going to tart this up, we're not going to distort it in any way. If it's a triumph, fine, if it's a tragedy, that too we will show." • The series hopes to shed light on one of conservations biggest challenges – SPACE. Amid the continuous growth of the human population, we’re seeing more and more how humans encroach on areas where animals live and how species are being pressed into smaller and smaller pockets of nature. • 🎥 by BBC Studios | @lifeatbbcstudios @bbc @bbcearth @david_attenborough @bbcone @blue.planet.2 • • • #dynasties #chimpanzee #lion #penguin #wilddog #tiger #habitatencroachment #nature #wildlife #animals #species #ecosystem #worthmorealive #conservation #environment #habitat #racingextinction #documentary #series #naturelovers #protect #endangered #awareness #save #planetearth #everydayextinction #biodiversity #environment #photography #photooftheday

Well, it was a close run thing so it seems, but everyone’s favourite @ugwildlife vet, Eric, has been pipped to the post in the 2018 David Shepherd Conservation Award. Most of you will clearly recall this event was run as an internet-based “electronic vote” process, with a computer tallying up the votes cast for each of the five finalists. So, although we tried our best as a country, it wasn’t to be this year, though Eric is one of the very creditable runner’s-up and will receive his certificate reflecting that in due course. Our sincere congratulations to the winner, Surenkhuu Luvsan of the Snow Leopard Trust in Mongolia, clearly a brave woman who is prepared to stand up publically for her beliefs. Regardless of any competition, Eric remains a true conservation champion in our eyes, something borne witness to by the countless numbers of anonymous, voiceless animals he has brought help and succor to in their moments of need and suffering in our national parks, here in Uganda. We salute him, and the other four finalists who are all winners in our eyes, plus all the many other unnamed and unheralded champions of conservation operating out there in difficult circumstances and often at great personal risk, to preserve and protect our natural heritage. You are all heroes. #conservationheroes #wildlifeconservation #worthmorealive

❤️🐘 Little Emoli's physical state was heartbreaking 😔 Thank you to all the kind hearted, unsung heroes caring for these precious orphans. ❤️💚🐘 #Repost @dswt with @get_repost ・・・ #tbt , 2017: When we rescued Emoli, only his barely-there pulse betrayed the fact that the skin-and-bones baby lying before us was miraculously still alive. For the next eleven days, he collapsed again and again, but he had a strong will to live (not to mention an immediate affinity for his Keepers) and now, a year on, you wouldn’t recognize the plump elephant he is today! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The drought nearly claimed Emoli’s life, but now he’s a healthy and happy little bull. ❤️🐘

My name is the Madagascar Flying Fox (Pteropus rufus). I am a large species of Fruit Bat found in the rainforest on the island of Madagascar. I am the largest Bat species on the island with a wingspan about 6 feet long. I like to roost in trees with hundred if not thousands of individuals. As a Fruit Bat, I feed mainly on fruit, specifically fruit juices. I will bite the fruit and drink the juice then spit out the pulp and seeds. The IUCN has classified me as Vulnerable due to deforestation taking place across Madagascar. I believe I am #worthprotecting because I play an important role in the ecosystem helping plants reproduce by spitting out the seeds allowing them to grow in different areas and fight deforestation. 📸Bernard DUPONT | Wikimedia Commons ______________________________________ Follow @animal.insiders for more stories on the planet’s inhabitants!!! ______________________________________ #nature #naturegram #stopextinction #animallovers #animalsofinstagram #racingextinction #cuteanimals #endextinction #savethespecies #animalsofig #wildlife #lovenature #wildlifeaddicts #climatechange #protectoutplanet #wildlifephotography #conservation #awesomeearth #worthmorealive #naturelover #bats #fruitsbats #flyingfox #madagascar #fruit #batman
World Elephant Day 🐘 (3 of 3) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ World Elephant Day is an international annual event held on August 12, dedicated to the preservation and protection of the world's elephants. The aim is to bring attention to the urgent plight of Asian and African elephants which are running out of space and time. Before we know it they will be gone - unless we can stop the senseless poaching and consumer demand for ivory, and allocate protected natural habitat in countries where elephants and other wildlife can thrive now, and in the future. @worldelephantday @savetheelephants ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #worldelephantday #worldelephantday2018 #elephant #elephants #elephantcalf #babyelephant #africanelephant #africanelephants #wildelephants #elephantfamily #elephantsofinstagram #instaelephant #elephantsafari #pachyderm #majestic_wildlife #wildlifephotography #africanwildlife #wildlifeconservation #conservationphotography #stoppoaching #endangeredspecies #worthmorealive #protectwildlife #savewildlife #wildafrica #savannah #amboselinationalpark #amboseli #riftvalley #kenya

Feeding time at the elephant orphanage ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This little elephant is an orphan. Along with many other orphaned infant elephants, he has been rescued by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, where I was lucky enough to encounter him. His mother and family were most likely killed by poachers for their ivory, leaving him alone, traumatised and grieving. Baby elephants are fully dependent on their mother's milk for the first two years of life and continue weaning until the age of four, so DSWT have developed a special milk formula to feed the orphans every three hours and their keepers stay with them twenty-four hours a day, even sleeping with the elephants during the night. DSWT takes in orphan elephants from all over Kenya and raises them until they can be released into the herds of Tsavo National Park and reintegrated back into the wild. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can find out more about the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust @DSWT ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #dswt #dswtnursery #orphanelephants #babyelephant #elephant #elephants #africanelephant #africanelephants #elephantsafari #wildlife #africanwildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeconservation #conserve #conservationphotography #stoppoaching #endangeredspecies #protectwildlife #savewildlife #jointheherd #worthmorealive #savetheelephants #bekindtoelephants #wildlifephotography #wildlifephoto #nature #nairobi #nairobinationalpark #kenya #eastafrica
March of the gentle giants ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Elephants are the world’s largest and most majestic land mammals. Their name comes from the Greek word ‘elephas’ which means ‘ivory’, but due to illegal ivory poaching there are only two main species of elephant left on the planet: The African Elephant and the Asian Elephant. The Asian Elephant is now an endangered species and the African Elephant is considered vulnerable. Without urgent action to save them, elephants could disappear from the wild within a single generation. We must act to save them now, before it is too late. To do this we have to start with education and knowledge. Without that, the children of the future will only remember elephants as the dinosaurs of the 21st century. #savetheelephants ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #elephant #elephants #africanelephant #africanelephants #asianelephant #wildelephants #elephantfamily #elephantsofinstagram #instaelephant #elephantsafari #safari #nature #wildlife #wildlifephotography #africanwildlife #wildlifeconservation #conserve #conservationphotography #stoppoaching #endangeredspecies #worthmorealive #protectwildlife #savewildlife #savannah #amboselinationalpark #amboseli #riftvalley #kenya #eastafrica @savetheelephants
