#Regram #RG @paulhiltonphoto: A second chance! Forest refugees. Critically endangered Sumatran orangutans will be given a second chance in the wild, after their mothers have been killed by poachers or plantation workers. These caretakers at the SOCP quarantine centre in Medan are doing an amazing job helping this little guys on their road to recovery and freedom within the Leuser Ecosystem, the last place on Earth where elephants, tigers, rhino and orangutans still run wild.

#Regram #RG @natgeo: Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // On assignment for @NatGeo and @NatGeoPristineSeas For three weeks we traveled by dog sled over the frozen sea ice of northwestern Greenland. As we neared the end of our journey, near the Inuit village of Qaanaaq, a flurry of snow covered the landscape and delighted Naimanngitsoq Kristiansen, one of our Inuit guides. Ice is melting rapidly in the Arctic and the sea ice is becoming unstable. To see images of how our dog team fell through the ice and into the freezing water, please #follow me at @CristinaMittermeier @NatGeoCreative | @NatGeoTravel | #Arctic | #snow | #snow | #dogs | #climatechange
#Regram #RG @leonardodicapriofdn: #palmoil is an ingredient found in many everyday products and foods – things like potato chips, candy bars, cosmetics and yes even pizza (dough). Palm oil companies have cleared and continue to clear some of the most critical landscapes in the world to make room for their crops. In the process, they are destroying critical ecosystems and threatening the culture and livelihoods of local communities.
#Regram #RG @everydayclimatechange: Guest Post: Photo by @everydayafrica co-founder Austin Merrill @austin_merrill for @everydayclimatechange A powderblue surgeonfish swims by a dead coral reef off Vommuli Island, in the Dhaalu Atoll in the Maldives. The rise in sea temperatures in recent years has killed coral reefs globally at an alarming rate, destroying marine life and damaging natural coastal barriers -- leaving coastal population centers at risk as storms become more common and more violent. The loss of coral reefs may cost $1 trillion globally, according to an Australian study, including the loss of millions of travelers and hundreds of thousands of tourism industry jobs worldwide.

#Regram #RG @unfao: Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated fishing, also known as IUU fishing, robs the world’s oceans of 26 million tonnes of seafood annually, bringing financial losses to a staggering US$ 23 billion a year. The Port State Measures Agreement brokered by @UNFAO not only presents a great strategy to stop illegal fishing, but it also gives processors and retailers another way to track their supplies and acquire fish that only comes through ports legally. For consumers, the treaty ensures that we buy seafood that was legally caught. ©FAO / 📷: Luciano Simonelli #BlueGrowth #PortStateMeasures #PSMA #fisheries #fish #fishing #Port #IUU #IllegalFishing #UnreportedFishing #UnregulatedFishing #seafood #BlueGrowth #GlobalGoals #goal2 #ZeroHunger #goal14 #Pesca #Рыбаки #渔业 #المصايد #Pesca #Pescado #Рыба #鱼 #سمك #Peixe #漁業 #魚

#Regram #RG @paulnicklen: A massive male polar bear exits the sea and climbs an iceberg near Svalbard, Norway. We were in a small zodiac boat cruising through the ice and accidentally surprised this big male who was out hunting for bearded seals. In one motion, he effortlessly pulled his approximately 800 pound mass out of the water leaving a small waterfall running down the ice. I am always humbled by their power and grace. I apologized for the surprise encounter and left him to his hunt which requires stealth, patience and strategy. He was not going to catch a seal with us in his icy domain. I am proud that this piece will soon be hanging in the @paulnicklengallery in NYC. I will be there on July 15th to launch a new body of work and celebrate in the work of @chrisburkard. #nature #bear #polarbear #naturelovers #ice #beauty #climatechangeisreal #blackandwhite

#Regram #RG @natgeotravel: Photo @pedromcbride // Locals cowboys celebrate the return of a long lost friend — water in the Rio Colorado. In 2014, thanks to a binational agreement between the US and Mexico, a river of sand became wet once again, and a fiesta ignited downstream. While the celebration only lasted a few weeks, it left something behind—hope. Over eight weeks of the “pulse flow,” the Colorado River showed us all that even with a relative trickle, we can bring a river back to life if we try. While many are working to do another pulse flow, it is suspected it won’t be enough to connect to the sea again. #coloradoriver #freshwater #delta #climatechange
Great news and a huge step forward as the permanent ban on gillnets has been made official. Thank you to all who helped make this happen, including President Peña Nieto (@EPN) and @leonardodicapriofdn partner @World_Wildlife. #Regram #RG @world_wildlife: Breaking news in the fight to save vaquita: As of today, gillnets are permanently banned in Upper Gulf of California. “This is a fantastic and encouraging step forward in the path to saving the vaquita, provided the ban is fully enforced and accompanied by fishing alternatives for local communities,” said Jorge Rickards, acting CEO of WWF-Mexico.

#Regram #RG @nrdc_org: In April, President Trump decided to make the fossil fuel industry even richer by trying to open the door to offshore drilling—and devastating oil spills—in the Atlantic and Arctic. To justify its claim for needing more oil, the Trump administration wants to force people to use more gas by rolling back fuel-efficiency standards—and then use U.S. tax dollars to subsidize the drilling. So not only are our beaches and wildlife at risk, but Americans end up padding the oil industry’s pockets.

#Regram #RG @mattiasklumofficial: Two elephants quenching their thirst near Abu Camp, Botswana. Here they are relatively safe but more than 100 000 elephants have been killed in Africa the last 3 years! In fact every 15 minutes an elephant is killed for its tusks and most countries in Africa don't have adequate capacity to protect their herds. China has announced a ban on all ivory trade and processing activities by the end of 2017. Let's hope it's a game-changer for the future of elephants. China has the biggest ivory market in the world - some estimates suggest 70% of the world's trade ends up there!

With projects in more than 15 countries, their dedicated staff also works with local and federal governments to put policies in place that regulate and enforce the trade of these magnificent animals.
#Regram #RG @nytimes: In the Netherlands, #climatechange isn’t seen as a hypothetical or a drag on the economy. It’s an opportunity. While the Trump administration reneges on the Paris accord, delegations from around the world travel to #Rotterdam to learn how to deal with climate threats. The @nytimes reporter @michael_kimmelman visited, too. He found a sinking city that has become a model for the challenges facing cities all over the world. From the moment settlers first started pumping water to clear land for houses and farms, water has been the central, existential fact of life in the Netherlands — a daily matter of survival and national identity. The Dutch approach is, in part, to let the water in. “We have no choice,” said Rotterdam's mayor, Ahmed Aboutaleb. “We must learn to live with water.” That means the construction of facilities like parking garages that become emergency reservoirs. Watch our #InstagramStory to see more photos by @joshhaner and to read more about how the Dutch are learning to live with water.
