💚🐸 #repost @leilanimunter ・・・ tomorrow is the one year anniversary since this frog (the last rabb's fringe-limbed tree frog in the world) died and his entire species went extinct. you may remember him from the 2015 documentary @racingextinction. i wrote a huffington post article about meeting this frog and his caretaker called "the loneliest frog in the world." (you can find it, just google) tomorrow i will be with his previous caretaker mark mandica @frogsneedourhelp at the @amphibianfoundation - they are trying to save amphibians around the world. i will do a live q&a with mark at 4pm et tomorrow (tuesday) from my fb page facebook.com/leilanimunter so please feel free to post any questions you may have for mark and please share toughie's story and watch racing extinction if you haven't seen it.

racingextinction 🙌🦈💙 to all the people who contacted the production company we can't thank you enough. you made a difference by taking the time to lend your voice to sharks. our campaign partners at @oneoceandiving @waterinspired @keiko_conservation were informed via e-mail that the showrunners (@duo_creative) are no longer planning to film in hawaii. this doesn't mean they won't continute with the reality tv show elsewhere. we made sure to inform them that, regardless of where they intend to film, we will follow. we'll continue to keep close eyes on the @duo_creative project and encourage you to do the same :). photo by @juansharks of @oceanramsey. #savesharks #racingextinction #waterinspired #keikoconservation #worthmorealive #sharks

racingextinction 🦈💙 revere, not fear 💙🦈 #repost @paulhiltonphoto ・・・ making contact. i wouldn't normally post an image like this, but it really shows that sharks 🦈 aren't the killers that they are portrayed to be. after over a decade of covering the shark fin trade, this was a very healing moment for me and it reinforced my commitment to the species. now back to indonesia, then la, to raise money for sumatran elephants. @racingextinction #conflictpalmoil #blueshark #sharks #nosharkfinsoup @wildaid @wildaidhk

racingextinction #repost @joelsartore ・・・ bald eagles aren’t born with that 'bald' look. when they’re young, these birds have a fully brown plumage and don’t develop the white feathers on their heads for another four or five years. during courtship, bald eagles display an incredible aerial dance wherein they grasp each other by the talons and spin in mid-air. after this strange display, those who mate will stay together for their entire lives, which can last up to 38 years! the two eagles will work together to build their record-breaking, 4.5 foot wide nests, and even take turns incubating their eggs. bald eagles are a true conservation success story. they were once abundant in the united states, but when european settlers arrived, their numbers dropped drastically. in 1940 congress passed an act to protect them, and though the act was helpful in protecting eagles, their populations didn’t really start to grow again until the early 1970s when a deadly insecticide called ddt was finally banned. in 2007, bald eagles were removed from the endangered species list and there are now about 9,700 nesting pairs in the lower 48 states. this bald eagle was photographed at the @suttoncenter. to see a video of a bald eagle, check out @natgeo. . . #baldeagle #eagles #birds #ealge #biodiversity #animalfacts #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #natgeo #savetogether #photoark

Manta monday! exciting news from our friend @shawnheinrichs: ・・・ the misool marine reserve has been named as a mission blue hope spot! click the link in @mission_blue's bio to learn more. #misoolgivesmehope because the marine reserve is working: an overall increase of 250% in fish biomass in just six years, and a staggering 600% increase in fish biomass on some of the key dive sites! perhaps even more impressive has been the rebound or reef shark populations, with the latest study showing 25 times more sharks found inside the marine reserve than directly outside of it. why does misool give you hope? @misool.foundation @misool.resort

racingextinction 💔🦈#repost @paulhiltonphoto ・・・ leaving spain, feeling frustrated with the amount of blue sharks that are being landed everyday. #shark fin trade in hong kong is fuelling the carnage and now many people in spain are consuming blue shark, every single day, mostly oblivious to this. next stop lisbon, then out on the atlantic, azores for some free diving with some blues. @racingextinction @wildaid @thewcs @pewenvironment @oceanicpreservationsociety @shawnheinrichs @jim_abernethy #nosharkfinsoup #sharks #savesharks #racingextinction

In the last few years we have tragically witnessed a rapid decline in sumatran elephants. hunted for ivory and poisoned, as a direct result of human wildlife conflict, there has never been a more important time to act. do you want to live in a world without elephants? 😥 you can support our elephant patrol teams in leuser. 🙌🐘 we need your help to employ more rangers and to urgently fit collars to a member of each herd. link in @paulhiltonphoto bio. @istandwithmypack edited by my @tristanhero @blackjaguarwhitetiger @tunkalai @planetexperts @wildlifeasia @istandwithmypack @rainforestactionnetwork @racingextinction #saveleuserecosystem #lovetheleuser #cutconflictpalmoil #racingextinction @leonardodicaprio @leonardodicapriofdn @haka_sumatra @socp.official

racingextinction 💙🐢 our friend @daviddoubilet has mastered the art of balancing life above and below water. in his famous image of a baby green sea turtle swimming for safety in the open seas of french polynesia, doubilet captures the moment with his signature dual level technique. he gives us a charming portrait of a young sea creature while placing it in the context of the terrestrial and underwater worlds. considered one of the finest underwater photographers ever, doubilet began photographing with a brownie camera when he was 12 years old. he has photographed over 70 stories for @natgeo during a career that has spanned four decades. doubilet and his partner marine biologist jennifer hayes now focus on stories of less popular subjects such as the extinction of freshwater eels and the plight of the sargasso sea.

racingextinction Apparently a production company called duo creative communications, inc. has been expressing interesting in creating a japanese tv show of their host killing tiger sharks in hawaii. tiger sharks numbers in hawaii have declined drastically in recent years. our friends at @oneoceandiving are in the water all day every day collecting their data through @oneoceanresearch and still consider it extremely lucky to come across one. despite this, it's not illegal to k**l sharks in hawaii, but it is highly frowned upon from a cultural and enviornmental standpoint. it is considered very offensive to the hawaiians, who consider them an aumakua, an ancestor that has come back in another form. please help us speak up for hawaii's tiger sharks by sending the production company an e-mail at megumi@duocc.com or calling/texting 1-415-433-1048 (usa number, please consider possible international charges if in another country). photo of @oceanramsey by @juansharks. #keikoconservation #oneoceandiving #tigershark #hawaiinewsnow #racingextinction #savesharks
