This holiday season, let us all speak and act with intention. as dr. jane goodall always says, "you cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. what you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."
🐘💕🦁 double tap if you want @ups and @fedex to stop transporting hunting trophies! head on over to their pages and kindly ask them to take a stand for species on the brink. elephants and lions will continue to be slaughtered as long as wildlife slayers with something to prove can ship heads, tails, and skins back home. #bekindtoelephants#racingextinction
i’m determined to do something about this. please repost it. use #bekindtoelephants, and for everyone who does, we’ll make a donation to the david sheldrick wildlife trust. @dswt#racingextinction#worthmorealive
from november 6 to 17, world leaders will gather in bonn, germany, for the 23rd u.n. climate change conference (#cop23) to discuss next steps in the fight against climate change. just one year into the historic paris climate agreement, countries are plowing forward to fight climate change, including china, india, mexico, and canada.
with president trump’s reckless announcement of withdrawal from the agreement, the united states has a lot of work to do, and we must continue to urge congress to stop jeopardizing our progress on tackling climate change. take action in @nrdc_org bio link! #racingextinction#climatechange
Photo and words from our talented friend and mentor @daviddoubilet: “healthy corals compete for space and light providing habitat for abundant fish life at opal reef on the great barrier reef. the great barrier reef, the largest and most iconic reef on our planet has since experienced back to back coral bleaching events caused by thermal stress. repeated coral bleaching leads to lower recovery and high reef mortality. marine scientists are working hard to identify and develop stress resistant corals called super corals that can survive in a fluctuating sea.” photographed for @natgeo story great barrier reef, a fragile empire. // with @natgeocreative@thephotosociety@the_explorers_club // #ocean#coral#climatechange#greatbarrierreef#worldheritagesite#racingextinction
You don’t need meat to get protein. the dietary choices that you make have a large impact on the planet. small changes can do a whole lot of good! will you take on the challenge? 🚫🐮#meatlessmonday graphic by @meatlessmonday

Speak up, make your voice heard for those who don’t have one. we are all connected on this planet and if we don’t make sure that all species are protected and all ecosystems are thriving, we cannot ensure a healthy future. each person has the power to create change, big or small. each person has the power to influence those around them and create a positive ripple effect in their community. we can all #startwith1thing, what will be yours? #activism#conservation#biodiversity
For 🐢 #turtletuesday we would like to echo the words of our friend @paulhiltonphoto. when traveling, please always avoid souvenirs made from endangered turtle shell. by doing so, you can help save these beautiful animals from extinction. 💚
the illegal sea turtle trade is on the rise again, from turtle shell jewellery, musical instruments and taxidermies. keep an eye out for the @wildaid campaign to combat this shocking trade. i hope one day we'll all just appreciate the beauty that is all around us everyday, seeing these species alive and thriving is only going to compliment our journey. "open your eyes" #seaturtle#wildlifetrade#coralreef#racingextinction
Thank you 🙏🏼@cityofmonterey for participating in #nostrawnovember and inspiring other cities to follow your lead! who else will be taking on the challenge to #stopsucking?!
city of monterey has proclaimed november 2017 as #nostrawnovember 🌊 did you know that 500 million straws are used every day? they cause an unnecessarily large impact on the environment because they either sit in the landfill for decades after a single use, or litter our beautiful beaches and parks. you can participate by requesting “no straws” at bars, cafes and restaurants. local businesses can provide straws only upon request. thank you for doing your part to help our oceans and environment!
