"the reason we do this is because of poaching. we don't like do it, hate to do it. but what else? it's a rhino with no horns or a dead rhino".
identity of this rhino owner is concealed for security and safety reasons. it's a shocking reality that we even have to do that.

- rare and beautiful fossil bird with preserved feathers: green river formation, classification: animalia, chordata, vertebrata, aves. lower eocene; fossil lake basin, southwestern wyoming, undetermined fossil bird species in marl-stone from the eocene is on public display at the field museum of natural history, chicago, illinois.
.
the green river formation of utah-colorado-wyoming is famous for having vast oil shale deposits and for having exquisitely-preserved fossils. fossil butte national monument in southwestern wyoming preserves and displays some of these high-quality fossils. leaves and fish are the most common large fossils in the fossil lake basin of the green river. this is one of those extremely rare, flawless examples (with perfect preparation) that we should never allow to be hidden away in any private collection.

T-rex alert!! it’s fair to say that since i was a very young kid i’ve dreamed of finding a t-rex tooth and this week i actually did!! it was an amazing week out in the hell creek formation in montana but seeing the tip of this beautifully preserved 2” t-rex 🦖 tooth was by far the highlight. after a little careful glueing for strength, this awesome tooth popped out completely in tact - amazing for something that has sat untouched in the ground for 67 million years. i won’t be forgetting this moment for a very long time!! #trex #dinosaursofinstagram #dinosaurtooth #trextooth #tyrannosaurusrex #tyrannosaurus #dinosaur #dinosaurs #fossilhunting #fossilhunter #montana #hellcreek #cretaceous #latecretaceous #fossil #fossils #discovery #fossilprep #fossilpreparation #fossillovers #fossiladdict #palaeoart #palaeontology #paleontology #paleoart #bucketlist #extinct #extinction #evolution #videooftheday

- 100-million-year-old jumping spider attack recorded in amber. - trapped in a piece of amber, the jumping spider appears to be on the cusp of devouring a moth. the amazing snapshot shows an event that occurred in the early cretaceous period, about 97 to 110 million years ago, in what is now myanmar, almost certainly with dinosaurs wandering nearby. the species are extinct today but the fossil suggests that insect behavior from the past is not too different from the present.
.
there is some poetic justice in the spider's attack when most likely a drop of tree resin fell on top of them just at the moment of the catch. *my own theory - is that the moth was already stuck in the sap and the spider unknowingly leaped into the resin to catch it, only to be frozen for eternity in a jumping action pose.* this fossil doesn't just capture the dramatic spider attack but also evidence of spider social life in the early cretaceous. sadly the 100-million-year old spider didn't get to enjoy its final meal.

It is fitting that on world giraffe day i can release a rhino in the herb garden - a short film for a project i recently completed in association with north harringay primary school.
~
the five animals in this collection were chosen to introduce the children to the diversity of the animal kingdom, and more critically bring focus to the plight of those species in danger of extinction, along with the rapidly disappearing flora on which they depend.
~
this series of artworks were created with the generous help of the north harringay primary psa, along with the assistance of staff members.
~
the rhino in the herb garden is partly created in the memory of sudan - the last male northern white rhino of his species - who passed away in march 2018. visit my website to watch the film.

Hard times for the dinosaurs breathing in all those volcanic gases. a ‘reconstruction’ of life in the mesozoic in a local hospital garden ... a clever disguise of an aircon vent with a few plastic figurines! interesting to see how people perceive previous life and landscapes ... photo: phil gilmore #dinosaur #volcano #mesozoic #gas #massextinction #ktboundary #geology #extinction #plasticfigures

Ocean plastic pollution is a massive environmental problem that humanity faces today. it is estimated that 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic is in our oceans and this number is increasing each year, endangering both wildlife and human life. by 2050 its predicted that there will more plastic in the oceans than fish
~
unlike other types of trash, plastic does not biodegrade; instead, it photo-degrades with sunlight, breaking down into smaller and smaller pieces, but they never really disappear. it takes 500 to 1,000 years for plastic to degrade. even if we stopped using plastics today, they will remain with us for many generations.

The rothschild giraffe was named was named after lord walter rothschild. it can be identified by its regular shaped colouration that stops at its knees and pretty soon you may only be able to see them at the zoo and in books.
there are less than 700 remaining in the wild. yes, that really says 700, i haven’t missed any zeros from that number.
giraffe species number have plummeted from 140,000 to around 84,000 in the last 15 years. that’s nearly 4,000 a year, or 11 a day. a that rate the species as a whole has about 20 years left, highlighting the rothschild themselves it is substantially less #worldgiraffeday #giraffe 🦒 #conservation #extinction #beautifulafrica #kenya 🇰🇪 #wildlife

Something for #throwbackthursday, and also a celebration for #worldgiraffeday. with a 40% decline in their numbers in the last 25 years, we need to protect these beautiful creatures more than ever. (illustration for derwent pencils, 2014)

#throwbackthursday last year on my birthday june 29th, i did the caravan tour @sdzsafaripark i fed a rhino, a giraffe & watched a baby giraffe being born. giraffes have always been my favorite animal ever since i was a little girl! it's #worldgiraffeday! according to @worldwildlifeday #giraffe, one of the world's most recognisable animals & the tallest land mammal, is threatened with #extinction. we've lost 40% of #giraffes in just 15 years. #habitatloss, illegal hunting & #poaching, #humanwildlifeconflict are threatening their survival.

Today is world giraffe day!!!!!
_______________________________________
every child in holland knows dikkertje dap, with his red boots, who climbs a ladder to give a sugarcube to the giraffe. a song written by the best childrenstory-writer ever: annie m.g. schmidt.
what most children and people don't know however, is that this other gentle giant is silently going extinct. in the last 30 years, 40% of the entire population has decreased. shot by callous trophyhunters and poachers. for kicks, for their skin and flesh, but also very much for the tip of their tails which is worth many many dollars. it is given as a dowry present to the father of the bride.
david hamlin made a documentary about the plight of these stunning creatures. while he filmed, he heard shots and three giraffes of a herd of 40 were poached. for their tails.
so today is the day of the giraffe.
let's celebrate this day by making people aware of this ordeal and upload pictures and stories about this beautiful, remarkable animal that looks so beautiful on the horizon when the sun is setting.
