For the 2018 #YSEALI#YOUnified in the #Philippines , with the theme, "FIVE: Filipinos Inspiring Volunteerism for Education, Environmental Sustainability, and Economic Growth", Vermon and I teamed up to conduct a half-day workshop this morning called "Communications for Conservation", for the youth greenducators of the DENR Environmental Management Bureau's #Greenducation program.
The goal of the workshop is to share with youth environmental educators the importance of #communications in doing #conservation , and to show them different strategies and platforms they can use to improve environmental education. My gratitude goes to the DENR EMB for hosting and supporting us, and to the @usembassyph and @yseali_official for sending goodies as well as allowing us to hear from Ms. Sarah Schumacher, who inspired our #youth greenducators with stories on her own volunteer work and how environmental protection activities are implemented in the #USA
I first met @CristinaMittermeier at the beginning of my career in photography at a NANPA (North America Nature Photography Association) meeting, roughly 15 years ago. Little did I know then what the future would hold, how we would one day end up working together as fellow conservation photographers. I admire her determination, stamina, and her positive approach to difficult issues.
A few days ago, Cristina's IG account reached one million followers! A great achievement for her, and a million more voices speaking up for good causes.
Cristina just published her new book, 'AMAZE.’ The tittle says it all. A great Christmas gift!
This is Ana. Super stoked to have this mountain lover on the team. We barely knew each other before she and her other stoat trapper friend Alex took me up Mt.Aspiring, without ropes, having never used crampons or an axe and in a push! Can't wait to explore the wilderness again! -Olivia. Here Ana working in Fiordland catching the invasive and destructive pest, the stoat.
Congratulations!!! ***HISTORIC WIN FOR ANIMALS*** New Jersey just became the first state to ban the use of wild and exotic animals in the circus and traveling shows!!! BCR has helped gain support for every iteration of Nosey’s Law, from sending action alerts to our supporters (prompting emails and phone calls) to having one of our very own outstanding AdvoCats directly involved in advocating for the bill’s passage. Congratulations to everyone involved and major kudos to our friends at Animal Defenders International and the Humane Society of the United States for their pivotal role in making this day happen!
This is just the first domino to fall... many more states to come and dare I say it, an end to big cats in the circus is in sight! What a grrrreat way to end the year! 🐯🦁🎉
Similarly to how we have foxes roaming the streets in London, this priest has leopards right on his door step! Does it bother him? No. Unlike many other places which have conflict, Jawai is unique in the fact that both animal and man live in harmony, seeing the leopards as guardians to the very temple he tends too, rather than a threatening neighbour.
My daily discussion on 'Animal Conservation Awareness' on the topic of Ivory. If you guys have a facebook please join on and see what daily conservation content we have! We have a team of admins dedicated to educating the world on conservation and our end goal is to go down the IUCN Red List of endangered species and talk about each creature on it. This is a non-profit animal based organization and we would love to start events such as park and highway clean-ups, ect.
Help us reach 100 and make sure to share our daily posts! Let's save the world!
The Monteverde Cloud Forest reserve is a beautiful example of conservation and rewilding. What was cow pasture and open space where the low lying cloud passed quickly by has become a lush forest supporting the return or wildlife to the area in just a few decades (the reserve was set up in 1972). “In the forest, the death of one is life for others”. - interpretive sign explaining how a decomposing tree feeds ants and other insects that return nutrients to the soil that in turn strengthen other plants. This reserve had some well written, rather poetic interpretive signage!
It was a truly life changing experience being able to help out at a turtle hatchery. The turtle hatchery is there to make sure the turtles have a good fighting chance at the start of there life they get taken off the beach and put into sand inside the hatchery so there safe. Once they hatch they then get fed a high protein diet for the next few days before getting released into the wild. The hatchery also get turtles from all over Sri Lanka that have been found hurt and potentially some missing limbs to try again build up strength and give them a fighting chance once released back into the wild. When a turtle swallows a plastic bag thinking its a jellyfish it sadly dies the turtle decomposes and breaks down but that plastic bag can't its left whole to now float off and repeat the process to the next turtle thinking its found food. 1 plastic bag could kill so many turtles it doesn't bare thinking about. I'm sorry to leave you with that fact but that fact gets to me and makes me want to help change our plastic consumption 1 bit at a time maybe it will to you too. #exploreyourworld#change#environment#conservation#help#seaturtles#turtles#beauty#seacreatures#ocean#sea#adventures#outdoorlife#explore#travel#plasticpollution#silverstickuk#marinelife#srilanka

Watch them all! This is incredible and needs to be heard. The voice of a generation that is articulate and succinct, @Regran_ed from @nrdc_org 15 year-old Greta Thunberg speaking truth to the powers that be at the UN Climate Summit in Poland: “we cannot solve a crisis without treating it like a crisis.” 👏YES👏 Listen Video via @democracynow - #regrann
