    Hawksbill turtle females always return to the beach where they hatched to lay their eggs. For this species to survive, we need to ensure that enough tropical beaches remain undisturbed.
There are so many amazing creatures in this world that #NationalGeographic #PhotoArk by @JoelSartore is seeking to capture on camera. This globally ambitious project aims to document every species in the world’s zoos and wildlife sanctuaries. By using the power of photography, Joel Sartore is inspiring people to help species at risk before it is too late.

    @joelsartore : Become a penguin protector by choosing to consume ocean-friendly seafood! Gentoo penguins like these two @theomahazoo are the fastest species of penguin in the world, swimming at speeds of up to 22 miles per hour! As carnivores, they mainly feed on crustaceans, fish, and squid, diving up to 450 times in a single day to find food. Unlike other species of penguins, the population of this bird is actually increasing in certain regions, though the species as a whole still faces a number of threats. The survival of gentoo penguins is at risk due to ocean pollution, increased human activity in breeding areas, and a large number of active and discarded fishing nets, which the birds could accidentally become entangled in. By downloading the @seafoodwatch app today and using it when you purchase seafood, you can ensure the seafood on your plate has been caught in a way that doesn’t negatively impact ocean health or the homes of many species like gentoo penguins. #penguin #gentoo #tuxedo #blackandwhite #carnivore #sustainableseafood #PhotoArk #savetogether

    💚 :: I G U A I S :: Sinto que estamos a precisar de ser recordados disto: um orangotango tem o mesmo valor na Terra que um humano; uma zebra o mesmo que um cavalo; um leão o mesmo que uma abelha; um tigre de Sumatra o mesmo que uma mosca da fruta. Deparei-me com este discurso (ou um semelhante) na exposição Photo Ark pelo fotógrafo da @natgeo @joelsartore quando explicava o porquê de escolher a missão de fotografar todos os animais do mundo em fundo preto ou branco: para que todos pareçam do mesmo tamanho, tenham a mesma imponência, a mesma beleza, a mesma importância. Isto tocou-me muito e queria partilhar a mensagem convosco. Com esta história da Amazónia lemos estatísticas sobre espécies em perigo e tribos indígenas em perigo: não podemos ficar indiferentes, porque há vidas em risco, tão valiosas como a minha, a da minha filha ou a tua. Repitam comigo: o que fazemos aqui, no nosso cantinho do mundo, impacta valiosas vidas de todo o planeta.
🌟 Sabias que os orangotangos partilham 96,4% dos nossos genes?
👉 Partilha uma ação simples que fazes com a consciência de que diminui o teu impacto ambiental. Tenta não repetir as de comentários anteriores - vamos inspirar-nos uns aos outros para fazer mais e melhor 🙌
P.S. A exposição está em Vilamoura até ao final de Setembro.

    This is such a wonderful place! It’s a conservatory for Gibbons, which are endangered, located in Santa Clarita. They lost their lease and urgently need to relocate. Keep them singing and swinging! 🎶 Donate to help - link & background in bio ❤️ Some facts about Gibbons: longer arms than legs, they sing, sexual dichromatic (females lighter color, men darker), monogamous, + fastest non-flying arboreal mammal. ▪️▪️ Posted @withrepost • @natgeo Photo by Joel Sartore I @joelsartore. A critically endangered northern white-cheeked gibbon with its baby @gibbonconservationcenter in California. Dedicated to helping gibbons both in the care of humans and in the wild, this center plays a vital role in saving these small apes from extinction, but the center has just lost its lease and needs our help now. To learn how you can save the center, follow me @joelsartore for the details. #GibbonConservationCenter #PhotoArk #SaveTogether #anthropology #gibbon #gcc #endangeredspecies

    Help create a brighter future for orangutans like Ayu and D.J. @tamansafariid by only buying from companies that support sustainable palm oil practices. While both Bornean and Sumatran orangutans are fully protected by law, the forest that they depend on is not. ​Logging to make room for palm oil plantations has made it almost impossible for orangutans to find tall old growth trees which they need to cross rivers that divide their habitat. The inability to move freely makes mating with other orangutans difficult, leading to a lack of genetic diversity which can be disastrous for a species whose numbers are already declining.​ Orangutans play an important role as gardeners of their forest homes - without them, many tree species would disappear entirely. But, humans still want palm oil, so in order for orangutan populations to thrive, humans need to find solutions for people and wildlife to live together. Check out the palm oil story in the highlights section to learn what actions you can take to protect orangutans in the wild. #Worldorangutanday ​#orangutan #babies #borneo #sumatra #cute #endangeredspecies #sustainablepalmoil #RSPO #PhotoArk #savetogether

    This statuesque beauty is a clouded leopard @houstonzoo. These cats, which are native to Southeast Asia, got their name because of their spots, which resemble clouds. Officially listed as a species in the 1800’s, there is still very little that we know about this species nearly 200 years later due to their secretive nature. ​Most of what we know about clouded leopard behavior actually comes from observing them in zoos. In the wild, its rain forest habitat is often divided into small, unconnected patches of forest by industrial logging and the development of agricultural areas, including vast palm oil plantations in Malaysia and Indonesia. If clouded leopards cannot move freely within their home range, they lose access to vital resources and can't find a mate, which leads to a decrease in genetic diversity. ​You can help protect habitat for these cats by choosing food and beauty products containing palm oil that is certified as sustainable.

    ​Become a warrior for walruses like this Pacific walrus @hkoceanpark by taking steps to reduce your carbon footprint. Commercial hunting was once the greatest threat to this species, but today, the biggest threat facing walruses is the loss of stable sea ice due to climate change. Walruses feed on the ocean floor in the relatively shallow waters of the continental shelf, where the sea ice sustains a rich food web. Sea ice is also a resting place for this species in between meals, and females will often leave their young on this frozen platform while they forage. Without the sea ice, walruses must swim longer distances to find food and a place to rest, which means burning through hard-earned energy stores that the walrus needs to survive. Warming conditions also mean more water vessels are able to venture into remote ecosystems that were once inaccessible, increasing the likelihood of boat strikes, water contamination, and entanglement in marine debris. By opting to walk, bike, carpool, or use public transport you reduce your transportation emissions which helps to slow the progression of global warming, protecting the homes of walruses and many other species. #walrus #pacificwalrus #bigtusks #climatechange #globalwarming #gogreen #greentransportation #PhotoArk #savetogether

    Here's one we bet you've never heard of: a snakehead gudgeon. This one was photographed at Templestowe College’s Freshwater Ecology and Marine Biology Department. In the wild, this species is most often found in small and clear freshwater streams. Within this ecosystem, the gudgeon relies on muddy stream bottoms, wood debris, rocks, and leaf litter to act as cover should the fish need to perform a disappearing act. As a species that is entirely dependent on its aquatic habitat, the snakehead gudgeon is also dependent upon us to help keep streams and other waterways clean. Pick up litter on your next walk around your neighborhood and make sure everything you collect is discarded of properly. Keeping our cities clean helps to prevent litter from making its way into aquatic habitats protects many species, including the snakehead gudgeon. #snakehead #gudgeon #fish #bigmouth #freshwater #preventplasticpollution #cleanwaters #PhotoArk #savetogether

    ​While not every creature in the Photo Ark has the best reputation, almost all play a role in keeping our planet healthy, which is why we are always looking for ways to live side by side with wildlife. Take these mosquitoes for example. Known as the Yellow Fever mosquito, this species is the main carrier of Dengue Fever and Yellow Fever in certain regions of North, Central, and South America. But, mosquitoes can be helpful, as they pollinate certain plants and often help form the base of the food chain. To keep them away, remember that mosquito species like this one will breed in your yard by utilizing unused flowerpots, spare tires, untreated swimming pools and drainage ditches-anything that can hold water long enough for their eggs to hatch and their larvae to develop into adults. By removing these items, or ensuring that they do not create pools of standing water, you can discourage mosquitoes from coming into your space without taking lethal action.

    Its National Honeybee Day! Did you know that these incredible pollinators are responsible for pollinating approximately one-third of the food consumed in the United States? Cucumbers, almonds, cherries, avocados, and kiwi are just a few examples of the crops honeybees help to produce. During a trip away from the hive, a single worker bee can visit anywhere from 50 to 100 flowers, and in their six to eight week lifespan, each worker bee will fly the equivalent distance of 1.5 times the circumference of the Earth - talk about a busy bee!
