racingextinction "bottom right, sumatran elephants move through the leuser ecosystem, gardening as they go. the tropical rainforests of africa and asia play a crucial role in keeping our planet healthy. they moderate our climate, absorb the carbon we produce - which can fall as rain many miles away. one of the biggest tropical forests in asia is the leuser ecosystem, with incredible biodiversity partly thanks to the sumatran elephant. help us protect the last herds within leuser..." to help, see link in @paulhiltonphoto's bio! #savetheleuserecosystem #cutconflictpalmoil #lovetheleuser #rainforestactionnetwork

racingextinction Today is #worldturtleday! 💙🐢 did you know that the shells of hawksbill turtles can change colors slightly depending on water temperature? sadly, hawksbill turtles like the one pictured here are critically endangered due to human activity, including destructive industrial fishing. tag a friend to support the protection of all turtles! 📸 @paulhiltonphoto @greenpeaceusa #worldturtleday #racingextinction #ocean #sea #turtle #underwater #nature #wildlife

racingextinction It's not too late! 🐢 we can still help save turtles, starting with sustainable seafood and fishing practices - or eliminating seafood all together! 📸 @joelsartore #worldturtleday #photoark #racingextinction

racingextinction 🐢 it's #worldturtleday, a day to honor and promote turtle and tortoise conservation around the world. sadly, global populations are declining due to the illegal wildlife trade, climate change, and habitat destruction. 📸 @candace.crespi #racingextinction #turtlepower

racingextinction Life lessons we all need to learn. the tiny vaquita marina porpoise (phocoena sinus), native to mexico, may soon be extict. the vaquita is not only the world's smallest cetacean, but also the most endangered marine mammal. only about 30 of them remain and their population is decreasing at an astonishing rate. the vaquita marina species are found only in the gulf of california, a world heritage site that sits between the mexican mainland and the baja peninsula. the waters are home to a wide array of species, but they also support half of mexico's total fisheries production. #repost @nakaweproject #savethevaquita #racingextinction

racingextinction #repost @hdrally ・・・ **happy tears** 💖🙌 😄yesterday, germany voted to end fur farming country-wide!!!! legislators have passed regulations so strict that the remaining 6 farms will be forced to close over the next 5 years. millions of animals around the world are beaten, electrocuted, gassed and even skinned alive for their fur. i have seen it and it is nothing short of hell on earth. no living being should be forced to suffer this way, let alone for fashion. #breakthrough #victory #animalrights #animalwelfare #germany #crueltyfreefashion #nosufferingformyclothes #racingextinction #compassion #revolution

racingextinction In honor of endangered species day, @joelsartore's images from the #photoark are “taking over” digital billboards in major cities across the u.s. the photo ark images are being displayed on the digital billboards in downtown new york city, urging people to look into the eyes of the many species that we can all be working to #savetogether. and soon, more than 45,000 locations will show these animals around the u.s., so keep your eyes peeled! thanks to the outdoor advertising association of america for making this happen! to learn more about this campaign, check out today’s article @usatoday join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #savetogether

racingextinction Double tap if you agree that fins belong on sharks, not in soup! 🙌💙🦈 last year the largest fish in the sea, the whale shark, was reclassified as an #endangered species due to declines in its population. we must continue to raise awareness about the threats of illegal fishing, shark finning, by-catch, ship strikes and under-regulated ecotourism pose. 📸 @shawnheinrichs #endangeredspeciesday #whaleshark #savesharks

Today, on #endangeredspeciesday, we celebrate the many successes we have seen in saving wildlife, while also taking time to acknowledge those species that still teeter on the edge of extinction. @joelsartore's #photoark is dedicated to telling the stories of all creatures, big and small, and bringing us face-to-face with what we stand to lose. but there is hope. the species featured here are all at risk of suffering losses that will push them past the point of no return, but tireless conservation efforts are helping some of these animals to see steady increases in their numbers. while these programs are highly valuable in restoring species, this work will not stand the test of time unless we all make the choice to take-action in order to ensure their survival. and don’t forget; when we save other species, we’re actually saving ourselves. this is because a healthy planet is vital for humans as well. so what can you do? use reusable grocery bags, avoid purchasing products made with unsustainable palm oil, say no to single-use items, do not use chemicals of any kind on your yard, and plant local plants that support pollinators. this is only a small snapshot of the actions we can all take to make a difference. long after i am dead, these pictures will continue to go to work everyday to save species. there’s no more important mission for me. now, how about you? music by @xambassadors . . #savetogether #photoark #natgeo #endangeredspeciesday #savingwildlife #xambassadors #takeaction
