B for Bontebok. The Bontebok is a medium sized antelope species found in South Africa, Namibia and Lesotho. Wikipedia says they are not good jumpers, but are very good at crawling under things. This lack of jumping ability probably saved them from extinction, when after nearly being hunted out of existence, the past 17 remaining Bontebok were enclosed on a farm in the early 1900s. They were not able to clear the fence and leap to freedom, something which saved them from being further hunted. From this population of just 17, their population has since recovered with the help of a conservation programme that resulted in the creation of a national park for them. Today there are more than 2,000 bontebok in the wild, woop! #bontebok #antelope #conservation #wildlifeconservation #animals #animaldrawing #art #digitaldrawing #krita

We love it when conservation organisations support each other and we want to acknowledge them and shout out about how awesome they are. Please meet Council of Contributors, who have named two rhinos on Ol Pejeta, Impy and Gugu – and who keep contributing to their safety and care, year after year. What’s more heartwarming about this donation is that it was made in honour of two baby rhinos who were killed by poachers three years ago at their orphanage in South Africa. They were attacked just a week away from the start of their release programme into the wild and the perpetrators got away with their horns. It was a devastating incident for all involved and something that we wish never goes forgotten! Council of Contributors ( @councilofcontributors ) was founded in their memory to save and protect rhinos and people who exist on the front lines of poaching crises. Thank you to Council of Contributors for your generosity. We think you are amazing and we want to let you know that your donation has gone a long way in ensuring Impy and Gugu get the life they deserve. We are truly grateful for the chance to preserve the little rhinos’ memories all the way here on Ol Pejeta. #Repost @councilofcontributors • • • • • • Dearest Impy & Gugu. 3-years ago today poachers violently and recklessly took your precious lives. For those of us who knew you, loved you, fed you, scratched your bellies and tucked you in at night -- our hearts cracked wide open and will stay that way forever. For you, we will never back down from this fight. . In your memory the Council of Contributors has made another $1,000.00 donation to 2 rhinos at Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya we named "Impy" and "Gugu" in 2017 so your little spirits could remain down here in Africa. Thank you #OlPejetaConservancy for taking care of Impy & Gugu ❤️❤️🦏🦏 . 📷 : Megan Richards @coexistwithmeg ••• #saverhinos #rhinoconservation #donotgiveup #wildlifeprotection #conservationinaction #protecttheprotectors #bethechange #photooftheday #antipoaching #protectwildlife #wildlifeconservation #stoppoaching #stoprhinopoaching #stopextinction #councilofcontributors

Golden Jackal During spring season when leaf get dry and fall from bushes , ground get brownish and when Jackal sit or stand it get Camouflage. It’s best way to hide for them. They can hide in pack and attack easily! It’s rare to them calm and sitting at one place, as they ones starting walking they walk for miles. Sillari Pench!

#repost@carmengreenphotography . Arabian Oryx in the desert. This is a species that almost became extinct in the 1960s and 70s due to hunting; a massive recovery effort has been made through captive breeding and reintroduction programmes so that this species is no longer threatened with extinction and now protected by law. A successful conservation story 😊 #Dubai #conservation #wildlifeconservation #wildlifeonearth #arabianoryx #arabian #oryx #conservationsuccess #successstories #arabianoryxes #antelope #desert #desertwildlife #dunes #wildlifeinthedesert #dubaidesertconservationreserve #dubaidesert #dubaidesertsafari #desertsafari #platinumheritage #platinumheritagedubai #wildlife #mammal #desertlife #uae #unitedarabemirates

“mistle thrush” ... a visit to sattal is incomplete without visiting pangot in upper himalayas. So off we went to pangot early morning, witnessing beautiful Himalayan peaks “Trishul” an array of birds etc. while in pangot we alighted amidst verdant surroundings & then heard the unmistakable “himalayan woodpecker” tok tok tok sounds , trying to spot it was a challenge & just then my eye caught sight of this “mistle thrush” on a tree bark in shade but with parts of sunrays catching it’s back ... not easy to sight a mistle thrush, i was delighted to make this image ... #bbcearth #earthcapture #natgeoindia #nikon #naturephotography #wildlifeindia #incredibleindia #indiatourism #nuts_about_birds #bird_brilliance #best_birds_of_ig #birdphotography #bestbirdshots #yourshotphotographer #natgeoyourshot #marvelshots #exklusive_shot #birdsofinstagram #nature #indianwildlifeofficial #wildlifeconservation #kings_birds #bird #birdlovers #birdsofindia #neverstopexploring #discovery @bbcearth @natgeoindia @animalplanetindia @discovery @yourshotphotographer @natgeoyourshot @incrediblebirding

One of the resident Asian Small-Clawed Otters at Save Vietnam’s Wildlife. These otters have become a popular pet in Southeast Asia. They are listed as Vulnerable on the ICUN red list and have recently been added to Appendix 1 of CITES (banning international commercial trade ). When I was volunteering at SVW we had 4 baby otters that came in that had been rescued from the pet trade. Wildlife should be kept in the wild and not be taken from it to become a pet. We need to spread awareness on the exotic pet trade and think twice before liking a cute photo of an animal in someone’s home. #asiansmallclawedotter #otter #savevietnamswildlife #illegalpettrade #keepwildlifeinthewild #notpets

Sadly, the On the Perch bird park in Tathra, NSW is set to close, the recent bushfires in the area taking their toll and reducing the number of visitors over what would normally be a very busy January period. The park not only allowed up close and personal encounters with endangered species common, it also hosted several successful breeding programs and their work in the areas of conservation and education is very well-respected among Australia’s avicultural and conservation communities.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Closing a place like On the Perch Bird Park is not as simple as shutting the door for the very last time. We have more than 800 animals that need to find new homes!”, says the team.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The sanctuary now aims to move all of these birds to other wildlife sanctuaries and parks across Australia, enabling our unique model of intimate wildlife interactions to continue. Now more than ever and as the bushfire emergency slows, positive interactions with nature and a mental and physical re-connection between people and wildlife is extremely important in the healing process during this overwhelming natural disaster. Our Closure Plan guides this work after February 14, but with no income from park entry fees to support this transition, we have launched a GoFundMe fundraiser to assist. Funds raised will be used to look after the health and well-being of the birds while other sanctuaries and facilities get ready for their arrival. Funds raised will also be used to dismantle the aviaries and send these materials for use by others caring for our unique wildlife.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you would like to donate, please head to the link in their bio @ontheperchbirdpark .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 : Leila Jeffreys ⠀ . . . .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bushfiresaustralia #bushfiresaustralia #bushfireseason #tathra #begavalley #sapphirecoast #wildanimals #wildlifeconservation #biodiversity #birds #sanctuary #savetheplanet #savelife

Following a brown fish owl, we stopped on a small bridge built on a nallah. We spent a good 3-4 minutes trying to spot the owl in one direction. Just as we were about to leave, our guide whispered “Sirjee, arjun ke ped pe leopard batha hai!” Within a nanosecond, our heads turned and we completely forgot about the owl. The ghost of the jungle had been watching us, right from the time we got there. I realised that day, the jungle is ALWAYS watching us. #wildlifeconservation #wildlife_vision #wildlifephotography #photographyofindia #dslrofficial #savenature #bestpic #incredibleindia #wildlifephotographer #savetheearth @natgeo @nature .geography @dslrofficial @colour_world_pictures @shutterhub .india #picoftheday #storiesofindia @topmacro_network_sabah @save .big.cats @officialwph #travelphotography #travellersnotebook #catsonly @wildlifefriend @savewildtigers @canonphotography #canon1200D @pictures .of.india #wildlife_seekers @indianwildlifeofficial #photography #earthcapture #tiger #traveldestination #insta #instagood #lightroompresets #nature #wildernessculture

Not a lichen or bird poop but these are metallic and fascinating things stick on the leaves called Metallic Scale insects ( Paralecanium expansum ) on family ( Coccoidea ) who living as Parasite on plants, they drink plant fluids through their piercing, tube- like mouthparts. So grateful I can meet this unusual insects in Sumatra. Nature always amaze us! 😊 Thank you so much for your information Brother Nick Mc, Kevin Newman and Damon Tighe 😊🙏 deeply appreciate it. #scaleinsect #bizzareinsects #mettalicinsect #weirdinsect #insectlove #insectslovers #parasiteinsects #entomologist #entomology #insectphotos #amazingbiodiversty #tropicalbiodiversity #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #wildlifeadventures #wildlifelovers #wildlifeconservation #wildlifeseekers #wildlifeguide #wildlifeaddicts
