#Regram#RG@nrdc_org: Good news! Proposals have been submitted by India, the Philippines, and Bangladesh to prohibit international trade in smooth-coated and Asian small-clawed otters. These beautiful species are poached across Asia for their skins and for pet trade. Luckily, these proposals will be voted on at #CITES#COP18 in Sri Lanka this May, and hopefully action will be taken to protect otters!

#Regram#RG@guardian: Joshua Tree national park has been forced to close after vandalism to its distinctive namesake plants. A skeleton staff and volunteers have attempted to maintain the attraction over the 18-day US government shutdown, but found themselves overwhelmed by visitors and sanitation issues. The park's iconic landscape is fragile and could take generations to grow back, officials said. With just eight rangers left to oversee the 800,000 acre park, the gates will likely remain closed until the shutdown ends.
#Regram#RG@nature_org: Plitviče Lakes National Park is a 295-sq.-km forest reserve in central Croatia. It's known for a chain of 16 terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls, that extend into a limestone canyon. The region’s rivers, remarkably undisturbed and home to a wealth of different species, have earned the distinction of the “blue heart of Europe.” But now, the Balkan region is at the brink of a hydropower development boom of global proportions, with hundreds, if not thousands, of new dams planned and under construction. TNC is advocating for smart renewable energy use in the Balkans without sacrificing habitat. Photo by: Ken Geiger #conservation#nature#thebalkans#waterfall
#Regram#RG@everydayclimatechange: Photo by James Whitlow Delano @jameswhitlowdelano on @everydayclimatechange: An abandoned hotel almost at the water's edge due to beach erosion in Talipanan Beach in Puerto Galera. By law, all structures are supposed to be 3 m from the high water mark but unregulated or underregulated rampant development has meant that when stronger storms, due to climate change, have washed away the beach, the land behind the beach, which would allow the beach to be replenished, is increasingly sealed under concrete. Puerto Galera, Mindoro, Philippine Recently world-famous Boracay Island was forcibly closed for six months of clean up. Puerto Galera, Mindoro along with El Nido, Palawan and Panglao Island off of Bohol Island have been mentioned as possible subjects to similar closure in the future. #climatechange#globalwarming#risingseas#rampantdevelopment#tourism#philippines#mindoro#puertogalera#documentaryphotography#jameswhitlowdelano
#Regram#RG@action4ifaw: It's no secret that as human population and development expand, the world's wild spaces are disappearing. If we want a world where there is a place for wild animals, we must preserve critical habitats for wildlife—one simply cannot exist without the other. Through protected areas like national parks, safe migration corridors, and ecologically sustainable human communities, we can make this a reality. - © IFAW/B. Hollweg
#Regram#RG@nrdc_org: The California Coastal Commission recently urged cities along the Pacific Ocean to prepare for the worst impacts of sea level rise: erosion, frequent flooding, and permanent land loss. Southern California’s beaches won’t just be decimated—many of them could disappear. Act on climate. Save our beaches and coastlines by taking action via our profile link.
#Regram#RG@leonardodicapriofdn: LDF is proud of our partners at RESOLVE who are unveiling a technological breakthrough for environmental conservation at #CES2019 – the Trailguard camera sensor, which uses the cutting-edge #Movidius AI technology to help monitor and protect wild forests.

#Regram#RG@undp: Climate change is being felt in this heart of the Amazon in Peru, bordering Brazil. In this remote stretch of river and deep jungle, the temperature🌡can drop to 16°C. The chill is a surprise for visitors expecting tropical heat. For the local people, these changes are worrying and more frequent these days. It's not just the mercury dropping. Food and wildlife are disappearing. To save what remains of nature, 24 indigenous communities teamed up and proposed a conservation area in Peru. Today, they live next to a national park, an indigenous reserve and this latest conservation concession, Yurúa Breu. By protecting the #LungsofEarth, they will also protect some of the world's last isolated people deep in the rainforests between Peru and Brazil. ☝️Tap the link in our bio for a photo story about how we are supporting their conservation efforts. 📷: Mónica Suárez Galindo/ @pnud_peru#unitednations#undp#environment#sustainable#climate#climateaction#globalgoals#southamerica#peru#brazil#indigenous#amazon#rainforest#Ucayali#Yurúa#Asheninka#rainforestdefenders
#Regram#RG@nature_org: A tower of reticulated giraffe in Loisaba Wildlife conservancy in Northern Kenya. Since the 1990s, reticulated giraffe populations have decreased by 70%. Once almost taken for granted as an abundant animal, now giraffes may be slipping away without public notice. In December 2016, the International Union for Conservation of Nature moved giraffes two categories down the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species from "Least Concern" to "Vulnerable." To address this, scientists are researching giraffes on two large areas of protected land, Loisaba Conservancy, which TNC helped protect and establish for the Loisaba Community Trust, and Namunyak Community Conservancy, one of 27 conservancies supported by TNC partner Northern Rangelands Trust. In 2017, the partners also affixed solar-powered satellite GPS tracking devices to 11 giraffes to understand their movements. Unfortunately, two of those animals were poached, but the remaining giraffes’ movements will provide valuable data that will help TNC and others develop informed conservation strategies. – Photo by @amivitale#giraffes#africa#conservation#kenya#reticulatedgiraffe#wildlife
#Regram#RG@sealegacy: Photograph by @PaulNicklen // Overfishing, climate change, pollution, and acidification have pushed our oceans to the brink of collapse. But we have the collective ability to make 2019 the most successful year for our oceans yet! For the next 19 days, we are sharing 19 things you can do to save our oceans. Tip #1 is to advocate for fossil-free, renewable energy. Seek out and invest in wind and solar energy options to end our dependency on oil, gas and coal.
#Regram#RG@everydayclimatechange: Photo by @mettelampcov A winter snow storm is approaching the Sierra Nevada mountains near Mammoth mountain. According to a new study from Scripps Institution of Oceanography: winter will still be coming to the Sierra Nevada mountain range, but winters will be becoming shorter, and disappearing earlier in the year, which could have implications for state water management and wildfire activity. This is particularly important for California, the most agriculturally-diverse state in the country and which experienced the worst wildfires on record in 2017 and 2018. #climatechange#sierranevada#mountains#snow#landscapephotography#california#water#snowstorm#watertodustphotoproject
