Great news from an #LDF project in Sumatra w/ partner @World_Wildlife. #Regram #RG @World_Wildlife: One of the last great stands of rain forest in the deforestation hotspot of the Indonesian island of Sumatra has welcomed an exciting new addition: a baby female orangutan. The infant is the first orangutan born in the Thirty Hills conservation concession since WWF and its partners began managing the 100,000-acre forest in 2015. Violet, one of dozens of orangutans reintroduced into Bukit Tigapuluh National Park—a region commonly known as Thirty Hills—is the new mother, and both mom and baby appear healthy. The Frankfurt Zoological Society (FZS), an international conservation organization committed to preserving wild lands and animals, has worked to reintroduce orangutans like Violet into Thirty Hills since 2001. Most of the orangutans were rescued from the illegal pet trade and placed in the society’s ‘jungle school.’ There, they learned the skills they need to survive before heading into the wild. Around 160 orangutans now live in Thirty Hills.
An incredible example of what we can do when we come together. Proud that #LDFoundation joined the many voices that made our government listen. #Regram #RG @CNN: BREAKING NEWS: A true victory for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, the construction of Dakota Access Pipeline is to be re-routed.

An angry sea continues attempting to reclaim the coastline in Pondicherry despite a boulder sea wall built after the 2004 Asian Tsunami. Pondicherry, India. It is not the seismically-induced tsunami, however, the poses the ongoing threat to the coastlines of Pondicherry and Tamil Nadu, which surrounds this former-French enclave. Climate change-induced sea rise and more intense cyclones that warmer sea waters regularly unleash on this coast means that many coastal villages are beginning to pull back from the sea as homes are undermined by eroded beaches. #climatechange #globalwarming #risingseas #cyclones #tropicalstorms #warmseas #India #TamilNadu #Pondicherry

#Regram #RG @oceana: Our oceans are a trashy place. @oceanaeurope has observed an increasing amount of marine litter and waste pollution in and around important habitats that is hampering effective marine protection. Continued misuse of the world’s oceans as a dumping ground will only further thwart global conservation efforts to protect habitats and restore depleted fish stocks. @oceana will continue to monitor and document marine litter in an effort to bring the issue to the world's attention. 📷: © OCEANA / Carlos Minguell #litter#pollution #marinetrash #habitat#oceans #protect #conservation#recycle #reuse #reduce #environment
#Regram #RG @everydayclimatechange: As 2016 draws to a close, and it increasingly looks like we're on track for a record high average temperature for the planet this year, according to the World Meteorological Organization, I (@danielbeltraphoto) think it is important to be reminded of just what the impacts are. The melting of our polar ice caps, such as in this photo, will have a profound and destructive impact on human civilization in both the near and distant future. Climate change is real and it is happening right now.
#Regram #RG @franslanting: Photo by @FransLanting “Iceberg Cathedral” Every iceberg tells a story. Each one is a snapshot of water frozen in time. This gigantic one, afloat in Antarctica’s Weddell Sea, looked like a turquoise cathedral with soaring archways and fluted columns sculpted by the corroding force of waves. When a group of chinstrap penguins came into view, they added reality to a surreal scene—their moment aboard the blue berg as fleeting as the life of the ice itself. Ninety percent of all ice on Earth is contained on Antarctica, and as our planet warms, glaciers dislodge an ever-larger portion of it each year into the Southern Ocean, where most icebergs melt away in a single season. The new NatGeo Channel documentary about climate change by Leonardo DiCaprio, “Before the Flood," does a great job of summing up the issues and specifying solutions. You can watch it online or on the channel.

#Regram #RG @conservationorg: Every other Friday, @ConservationOrg's Photo Editor will share with you their #PhotooftheWeek. This week's photo is from @NASA Earth Observatory. Sundarban forest. The largest remaining tract of mangrove forest in the world, stretching across part of southwestern Bangladesh and southeastern India. Home to the endangered Bengal tiger, sharks, crocodiles, and freshwater dolphins, as well as nearly two hundred bird species. Coastal ecosystems like mangroves are crucial for protecting marine biodiversity and fighting the causes and effects of climate change.

#Regram #RG @oceana: Protecting marine habitat is a crucial part of Oceana’s strategy to restore ocean abundance. Important marine habitats across the globe, from tropical reefs to deep-sea Arctic waters, face threats of oil drilling, seismic airgun blasting, destructive fishing gear and overfishing. By helping to establish Marine Protected Areas and promote better policies in these areas, we can preserve vital ecosystems and at-risk species.
