The one always give, give, give, and the other do is take, take, take. But in the end, symbiosis.

On some of our tours, thousands of black birds can be seen descending on the ocean. These birds, the Cape Cormorants, will go out to feed in mega flocks, flying one behind each other to save energy. These birds will also never fly over the mainland, flying over the waves to further conserve their energy. #MarineBig5 #cormorant #endangered #capecormorant #seascape #sealandscape #birding #birdwatching #landscapephotography #instadaily #naturephotography #ocean #sea #seabirds #wildernessculture #ourplanetdaily #wildlifephotos #blueplanet #visualsofearth #wildlife_photography #justgoshoot #oceanlover #visualsoflife #southafrica #capetown #tourist #wanderout #exploreourearth #ecotourism #explorepage

Credit: @thewild.world At 45, Sudan was an elderly rhino, and his death was not unexpected. Hunted to near-extinction, just two northern white rhinos now remain: Najin, Sudan’s daughter, and Fatu, his granddaughter, both at the conservancy. The prospect of losing the charismatic animals has prompted an unusual scientific effort to develop new reproductive technology in hopes of saving them. “This is a creature that didn’t fail in evolution,” said Thomas Hildebrandt, head of reproduction management at the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research in Berlin and one of the project’s leaders. “It’s in this situation because of us.” -The New York times article Photographer: @amivitale ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #rhinos #rhino #sad #endangered #critical #nytimes #kenya #sudan #whiterhino #nature #facts #wild #wildlife #life #animals #wildanimals #animals #africa #love

For today on on the last day of #bearawarenessweek we will be talking about the sloth beae, also known as labiated or stickney bears. Their current status is listed as "vulnerable" with an estimated 10,000 to 20,000 bears remaining in the wild. - Like many other bear species, one of the main threats to sun bears is habitat loss. Deforestation and forest degradation has greatly reduced their numbers. Sloth bear numbers have been drastically cut due to destruction of their natural habitat for timber, agriculture and development. Habitat degradation outside protected areas results in reduced available food for the bears, which may then be more likely for them to eat human associated foods such as sugarcane. - Like other bears in Asia, sloth beads are also hunted for their gall bladders, which are used in chinese folk medicine. They are also hunted for other body parts used for food and decorations. The gall bladders are highly sought after for medicinal purposes and despite the ban on trade by the Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) the bears continue to be killed illegally. - Another main issue threatening these bears is the capturing of bear cubs and using them as dancing bears in India. Like Sun bears, their mothers will be killed and then their cubs stolen and forced to perform degrading acts in front of large crowds. - Sloth bears are also commonly hunted due to their aggressive behaviour and increasing contact with humans as their natural habitats get smaller due to human activities. A study in Madhya Pradesh, India, April 1989 to March 1994 documented 735 human casualties of human-sloth bear conflicts, with 48 fatalities. Sloth bears are generally not aggressive, but their poor eyesight and hearing allows humans to draw near, and when feeling threatened these bears will defend themselves. - Some ways we can do our part to help these strange unique bears is to adopt one of them through the WWF website. All donations to this organization can help them improve their efforts and strive for better conservation efforts. small cute bears is to spread more awareness about the threats they are facing.

Dark knight! Lion tailed macaques are an endangered species of monkey endemic to the Western Ghats of India. This mother had to come down from the canopy to cross a fragmented patch of forest. While she kept an eye out on the troop up on the trees, her baby popped her head out and watched the world upside down from the ground :). #wild #wildlifeonearth #wildlife #monkey #monkeys #primate #primates #liontailedmacaque #wanderoo #endangeredspecies #endangered #westernghats #endemic #wildlifephotography #photography #photooftheday #toeholdphototravel
