Red wolves are important components of their native ecosystems due to the fact that they are an "umbrella species," meaning they increase the natural health of the areas they live in. #wolf #wolfmoon #wolvesofinstagram #wolves #worldofwolves #canine #animalrights #endangeredspecies #endangered #endangeredanimals #wolfpack #wolvespack #wolfpuppy #wolfdog #realwolf #greywolf #graywolf #savethewolves #wolfrescue #wolfconservationcenter #wolfconservation #savewolves #wolflover #lovewolves #lovewolf #lonewolf #packwolves

Coelacanth • • • • Scientific name- Latimeria chalumnae Range- Indian Ocean, off Comoro islands Habitat- Rocky or coral slopes Size- 1.9 m Status- Endangered • • • • • Brief Description- Coelacanths are heavy bodied fishes, with fleshy lobes at the base of all fins except the first dorsal fin; the pectoral fins can be turned through 180 degrees. Such fishes, known as the crossopterygians, were once widespread. The internal structure of the coelacanth has many features which throws light on the evolution of fishes; for example, the heart is extremely simple compared with that of other fishes and is similar to the early fish heart which theorists had predicated. The kidneys, unlike those of any other vertebrate, are positioned on the underside of the body. Modern coelacanths are carnivores, believe to feed mainly on fish. There have been much disagreements about their breeding methods, but now, since the discovery of a female with five almost fully developed young in her oviduct, they are known to be ovoviviparous: they bear fully formed young by means of eggs that hatch inside the mother. Coelacanths were thought to become extinct in the late cretaceous period, around 66 million years ago, but were rediscovered in 1938 off the coast of South Africa. #coelacanths #animalkingdom #loveanimals #animal #fish #prehistoric #endangered

Today we LAUNCH our Dorset's Heathland Heart #shortfilm - a celebration of our work, led by @Love_plants to save 19 scarce and declining species who call the heath home. Full film linked in bio. The scintillating sight of the milky-white petals of Pale Dog-violet (Viola lactea) - so electrified with deep purple veins - has been sadly disappearing from heathlands for decades, to the point that it is now endangered in England. It is a particularly temperamental species that both likes the protection from grazing and trampling provided by gorse yet loathes being completely shaded. Thanks to the work of our staff and volunteers to clear spiky gorse, we’re seeing a wonderful re-emergence: across the heaths Pale Dog-violet is bouncing back from the brink as it emerges from the shade. #naturephotography #partnership #collaboration #naturefilm #nature #endangeredspecies #endangered #wildlife #wildlifephotography #conservation #photooftheday #conservation #rare #nature #natural #film #wildlife #wildlifephotography #heath #heathland #dorset #dorsetheathlandheart #dogviolet

If you visit @andbeyondbateleurcamp in the Maasai Mara of Kenya, this little face will certainly rank as one of the cutest you’d see out here... The characteristic white-heart-shaped nose, and ashy cheeks that contrast the mostly black coat with somewhat ginger hair-tips, makes for a very striking little face. But that’s not where the beauty ends for this little primate, as her dark coat blends to an eventual vibrant red/rusty tail. Coupled with its striking features is a shyness, that becomes very endearing, so to spend time with them is certainly a privilege in this forest. Red-Tailed Monkeys as a species do not occupy a particularly large geographic range within the borders of Kenya, as the core of its populations would be more toward the forests of central Africa, which makes this a very special find, if you are fortunate to come across one on your safari. #travelandbeyond

I miss the Day Exhibit here at Woodland Park Zoo so much!!! It was an incredible exhibit of almost all amphibians and reptiles! I am thinking of the tree kangaroo they also had in there. The coolest & greatest thing ever is that it was open during Wild Lights seasonally in the winter! That is why I was always going to Wild Lights more than a dozen times each year. I went for the purpose of having a chance to see their nocturnal animals in this exhibit awake because they almost never were during the zoo hours. They had seven species of frogs in this exhibit until they got rid of the hour glass tree frogs. My favorite animal they had there was the red-eyed tree frogs. Red-eyed tree frogs are nocturnal. The red-eyed tree frogs did not always wake up each night before Wild Lights closed. Although a number of nights they did like the night I captured this one. Look at those big eye pupils instead of just a sliver because this frog was wide awake. Just the way they were fun to watch. #woodlandparkzoo #thisishowwezoo #crepuscular #amphibian #frog #froglovers #redeyedtreefrog #nocturnal #animal #animallovers #animalloversofinstagram #savetheforest #savethehaitat #savethespecies #savetheanimals #endangeredspecies #endangeredanimals #endangered #keepitwild

Sumatran Orangutan (Pongo abelii) According to @wwf: “The Sumatran orangutan is almost exclusively arboreal, living among the trees of tropical rainforests. Females virtually never travel on the ground and adult males do so rarely. Sumatran orangutans are reported to have closer social ties than their Bornean cousins. This has been attributed to mass fruit on fig trees, where groups of Sumatran orangutans can come together to feed. Adult males are typically solitary while females are accompanied by offspring. Historically, the Sumatran orangutan was distributed over the entire island of Sumatra and further south into Java. The species' range is now restricted to the north of the island with a majority in the provinces of North Sumatra and Aceh. Of the nine existing populations of Sumatran orangutans, only seven have prospects of long-term viability, each with an estimated 250 or more individuals. Only three populations contain more than 1,000 orangutans. Orangutans that were confiscated from the illegal trade or as pets are being reintroduced to Bukit Tigapuluh National Park. They number around 70 and are reproducing.” #orangutan #sumatranorangutan #criticallyendangered #endangered #endangeredspecies #art #drawing #ipadpro #applepencil #line #lines #blackandwhite #animals #illustration #quarantineart #2020 #2020art #meditativeart #adobe #adobefresco #fresco #apple #vectors #vectorart #vector digital #digitaldrawing #california #May2020 @wwf Based on a photo by Michaël Catanzariti - Personal picture, CC BY-SA 3.0 https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Young_orang_utan.JPG

Remembering Jairo Mora Sandoval (March 22, 1987 - May 31, 2013) Today marks the anniversary of the death of Jairo Mora Sandoval, a courageous and passionate turtle defender who was brutally murdered by poachers on Moin Beach in Costa Rica while protecting the nesting grounds of leatherback turtles. He was 26 years old. Sea Shepherd is committed to keeping his legacy alive. Operation Jairo has been defending nesting sea turtles and their young on beaches around the world for the past five years, giving a voice to the voiceless and saving thousands of lives. Thank you, Jairo. We are honored to continue your work in your name. seashepherd.org/jairo #OpJairo
