Yes you can! So many devastating events going on these past few months. Climate change is affecting our planet in so many ways, and Earth is telling us something. Donate to relief efforts, conservation efforts, do whatever you can to change the world for the better! You can do it!
“I can never remember my dreams so Mr. Yourgrau’s stories are a pretty good substitute," says musician David Byrne. Barry Yourgrau writes on the hysterical, the surreal, and the emotional. Born in South Africa, Yourgrau divides his time between New York, Istanbul, and the rest of the world – he travels a lot. And, he has written for pioneering journals from The New York Times to Vice to Paris Review Daily, to Artforum.

The Burmese star tortoise nearly went extinct. Popular with pet traders, the medium-sized tortoise with a distinct pattern on its shell was almost erased from the wild in the early 2000s. With a team of conservationists and government partners, our colleagues in Myanmar have conducted an aggressive captive-breeding program to bring it back. Thanks to that effort, the Burmese star tortoise population has reached over 14,000 individuals. Watch the video at wcs.org.
Overwhelmed by the impending doom of climate change? 😪Yeah same. Trying not to think about it?😅 Yeah. Someone else will fix it? 😒💭Idk man. "Animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation."
-cowspiracy🐄🐄💨🚗🚕 Damn, animal foods are more harmful to humans and all species on this planet as a whole than CARS!
Everyday you have a choice, you can be part of the solution, 3 times a day or more. Idk about you but its a hell of a lot easier to quit animal products than it is driving (: It's not just about saving animals, but humans and wild life animals that we have come to marvel at their beauty, all the future humans, your lil' grand babies that will be born into this.👪😷😨😩
🌍🙏think with me🙏🌍 The wild fires🔥, the heat waves💥, the rising sea🌊, habitat destruction🌲🌳😨, wildlife extinction🐼🐯🐒🐧🐘🐬🐝, the earthquakes🌍, the hurricanes🌀, it is happening now...& only going to get worse. We should all strive to do something to contribute to the solution...what will you do? 😍😦😇
Our future lil' humans deserve better than a dying earth, no wild life, and family members dying from dietary illnesses.💚 #climatechange#vegan#sustainability#cowspiracy#change#earth#heal#plantbased#activism#ethics#lifestyle#reality#veganfortheearth#fightclimatechange#motherearth#peace#restore#spirituality#love#help#whygovegan#animals#loveanimals#extinction#solution#collective#food#animalag#cows

The cover for Volume 2 of issue N.16 is an illustration by Stephanie Richa of kumquat fruits, as though floating off their tree. A staple of The Carton's "asrouniyeh" gatherings, the kumquat tree was chosen for this volume as a symbol for protecting not only resources but also, equally as important, heritage from extinction.
Stephanie Richa draws plants. For The Carton's first of its kind three-volume edition, N.16, Stephanie created three different cover patterns, one for each volume.
The artwork for Volume 1 is of tangled, multicoloured bougainvilleas often found in seaside towns, especially along the Mediterranean.
This photo is making allot of noise. Rightfully so and cannot be over shared...Declared the winner in this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Look what we have done to our wild 'life' ...

The best thing about #worldpressphoto is that the story gains tremendous exposure and is seen by people who may not be aware of what is going on. The natural world is threatened like never before, we have to learn to live in balance with nature or it's over. #worldpressphoto2017#rhinopoaching#wppnature#blackrhino#carcass#extinction

Halo teman-teman! Tahukah kalian bahwa setiap jenis badak memiliki karakternya tersendiri dalam bereproduksi?
Badak Sumatra termasuk yang "moody" dalam bereproduksi dan hanya bisa dilakukan pada waktu tertentu. Badak Sumatra betina hanya mau didatangi pada 4 hari tertentu saat sedang “in the mood”. Tidak hanya demikian, hanya ada satu hari tertentu dimana mereka mau menerima pejantan, selain hari itu pasti ditolak.
Tantangan lainnya pada saat bereproduksi adalah Badak merupakan kaum penyendiri. Berarti tetap susah bertemu badak jantan saat sedang mood. Huft ribet yaa? Makanya penting untuk menjaga habitat agar badak-badak jantan dan betina dapat bertemu di alam liar
Javan rhinos are the most threatened of the five rhino species, with 58-68 individuals surviving in Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia.
The Javan rhino is a dusky grey color and has a single horn of up to about 10 inches, Their skin has a number of loose folds giving the appearance of armor plating.
They are extremely vulnerable to extinction due to natural catastrophes, diseases, poaching,lack of feed due to Langkap plant invasion, and potential inbreeding.
We have brought white, black and Indian rhinos back from the brink of extinction so we know how to save rhino species. Now it’s time to pull together as a global conservation community to do the same for the Javan rhino -Dr. Barney Long-

Hello folks I am here to guide you all through the journey of the conspicuous unknown (indeed a juxtaposing statement) paranormal and unnatural activities us homosapiens regard as mere coincidental events #urbanlegends#wakeup#species#extinction#nocturnal
We are a small family business ( just two of us actually) making peanut butter because we want to make something wonderful for you to spread on your toast that supports a healthy lifestyle that involves conscious eating and kindness. We don’t use Palm oil in our peanut butter because we want to keep the rainforest breathing and the orangutans swinging. We love animals, especially the orangutan who are threatened with extinction due to consumer choices of buying products with palm oil in. So many people still don’t know how palm oil comes at a human, animal and environmental cost. So many people are also unaware that it’s hidden in most packaged foods( they try not to tell us). We want to spread the word while you spread our lovely peanut butter on your toast. Please read your labels .You will only find the finest nuts and pink Himalayan hand caved salt in our jars. We stole this fantastic photo from @alessio_bariviera -Head over to this conservation photojournalist’s page for more incredible photos and stories from planet Earth 🌏 #keepthemswinging
Killer Whale (Orcinus Orca)
Orcas, or killer whales, are the largest members of the dolphins family. They feast on marine mammals such as seals, sea lions, and even other whales, with teeth that can be four inches long and are known to grab seals right off the ice and even attack and consume Great White Sharks. Orcas hunt in family groups of up to 40 individuals. There appear to be both resident and transient pod populations of orcas. These different groups may prey on different animals and use different techniques to catch them. Resident pods tend to prefer fish, while transient pods target marine mammals.

Today we saw an incredibly powerful image by Brent Stirton win the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017. His image Memorial to a species, frames a recently shot and de-horned black rhino in South Africa’s Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park.
Once the most numerous rhino species, black rhinos are now #Criticallyendangered . Large-scale poaching of the black rhino resulted in a dramatic 96% decline from c. 70,000 individuals in 1970 to just 2,410 in 1995.
Cathy Dean, CEO at Save the Rhino International, explains why images showing the true brutality of the #poaching crisis are so important,
“After almost 10 years of the current rhino poaching crisis, it’s hard to keep the shocking reality in the public eye. The statistics – 3 rhinos killed every day, more than 1,200 killed every year – are still almost as grim as they ever were, but they don’t tell the real story: the horrific brutality, cruelty and pointless killing of one of the world’s most iconic beasts by criminal gangs who are only interested in the profit they can make. How can anyone look at Brent Stirton’s image and not feel moved to do something to help save a species under constant threat from human greed?”
The media generally only covers the most horrific or unusual incidents, such as the shooting of a rhino in a French zoo, or the 12 days in July during which 23 #rhinos were killed in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park. But for the rangers and rhinos in #Africa and #Asia , the strain of the last nine or 10 years must be unimaginable.
