#Repost @justice4earth ( @get_repost) ・・・ Today is #WorldPangolinDay. The pangolin is the world’s most trafficked mammal and an estimated 100,000 are taken from the wild every year across Africa and Asia. Their meat is considered a delicacy by some in China and Vietnam, while their scales and fetuses are used in traditional chinese medicine to treat a range of ailments from arthritis to cancer (but there is no scientific evidence that any pangolin parts actually has any medical properties). There are 8 pangolin subspecies and all are listed as ‘critically endangered,’ ‘endangered’ or ‘vulnerable.’ Just last week, Malaysian authorities have seized another record 30 tons of pangolin and pangolin products in eastern Sabah state on Borneo, the biggest such bust in the country. — Photo via @paulhiltonphoto #Pangolin #WorldPangolinDay #AnimalTrafficking #CriticallyEndangered #Endangered #Vulnerable #EndangeredSpecies #conservation #wildlifeco #wildlifeconservation

Happy #worldpangolinday !! We are so sorry the weather wasn’t on our side and we had to reschedule our pangolin party! Please join us next month to help raise awareness and funds for these unique creatures . . All 8 species of pangolins are threatened due to poaching. Pangolins are the only scaled mammal, and unfortunately have the reputation of being the most #trafficked #mammal on earth. In the past decade, estimates are that over 1 million pangolins have been poached. These guys don’t survive well in captivity, so we really need to make sure we don’t eradicate them from the wild. . . #whenthebuyingstopsthekillingcantoo #worthmorealive #pangolins #bethechange #worldpangolinday2019 #keratin #scales #anteater #pangolin #conservation #wildlife #endangered #rare #cutie #mammal #wild #life #love #spreadtheword #BETHECHANGE #FRIENDSNOTFOOD Photo from @globalconservationforce

Lacoste swapped its distinctive crocodile logo for one of 10 threatened animal species on a series of limited-edition polo shirts, designed to bring attention to the global state of biodiversity. The availability of each shirt corresponds to how many of that species remain i.e. there are just 231 California condors in the world, meaning that just 231 polo shirts with this logo will be released The 10 endangered animals featured were the Sumatran Tiger, the California porpoise (vaquita), the Burmese turtle, the northern weasel maki, the Java rhino, the eastern black crested gibbon, the kakapo, the California condor, the saola, and the Anegada iguana. The French brand made 1,775 polo shirts in total. Selling out immediately they raised $328,000 for conservation efforts towards the individual species 🐼Follow us @ecopandas for daily good news 🛎 don’t forget to turn on notifications Source: @the.independent

Feeling in a Pelican mood today. Gracefully soaring at times and then waddling comically, yet completely convinced that I DO look good! The California Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis californicus) was once severely endangered and has made a nice comeback on our coasts. Their mating plumage is gorgeous. They dive from the skies for fish that they scoop into their pouch to swallow whole. This is in San Diego, California near La Jolla (pronounced HO-yah) Cove.

J1 Ruffles, The Iconic Bull from J Pod…Was an L Pod Whale! (Part 2) . J1 was traveling with J2 as an integrated member of J pod when studies on the southern resident population began. His real mother, L45, however, was still very much alive and did not pass away until 1995. There are instances when orphaned males will transfer to a new pod and become “adopted” by other females (this is the situation with L87, currently living with J pod, who also was adopted by J2 Granny). But J1 wasn’t orphaned. His mother was alive and well. Why wasn’t he traveling in his birth pod with his birth mother? This new information raises the possibility that J1 could have been rejected or otherwise abandoned by his mother, causing him to seek out companionship with females in J pod. Another possibility is that L45 had enough on her plate raising L57 and J1 went off in search of a better adopted mother/provisioner (which we know is critical to the survival of adult males). . While the revelation of J1′s true identity is definitely startling for all those who followed him over the years, there is some good news as well. J1 was a very successful father and sired dozens of calves, many of whom are in J pod. This raised concerns about inbreeding as pod members, even if they are not in the same matriline, are usually related. Typically, whales try to breed outside the pod by mating with individuals whose vocalizations are most different from their own––this indicates they are not closely related. Knowing that J1 was genetically an L pod whale means that the genetic viability of J pod is perhaps not as bad as once thought. It also raises interesting questions about culture and learning in killer whales––did J1 use J pod vocalizations or L pod vocalizations? How did this impact mate choices? . This new discovery shows that with improvements in genetics, there are facets of killer whale biology which we currently accept as fact that might require a closer look. I, for one, love this aspect of science. There is always more to learn. . Caption by @flukeprintphotography Be sure to check out part 1 if you haven't already!

#WorldPangolinDay is today! I didn’t know about this animal until @believeitornick told me about them this year. If you were in the same boat as me and knew the Pokémon based off of it before you knew what a Pangolin actually was, today is your chance to learn more about this gentle creature! Pangolin populations are at risk and you can help my doing 2 very easy things. 1. Make a humble donation to the rehabilitative wildlife centers tagged 2. Post on social media and talk about the Pangolin today. One of the challenges about Pangolin conservation efforts is that they don’t get the coverage that big animals like rhinos and elephants do. Following the suggestion of @pangolinandco, I even recommend tagging your fav influencers so that we can maximize our platforms. #scalinguppangolinconservation #pangolin #conservation #pangolin #pokemon #animals #cute #endangered

#Repost @pangolinandco ( @get_repost) ・・・ To celebrate #WorldPangolinDay here are our ‘Top Ten Pangolin Facts:’⁣ ⁣ 1. There are 8 species of pangolin, 4 in Africa and 4 in Asia. ⁣ ⁣ 2. Though solitary animals, pangolins spend an average of 2 years with their babies.⁣ ⁣ 3. Each pangolin has over 1,000 keratin scales that can make up to 20% of their body weight.⁣ ⁣ 4. The word ‘pangolin’ comes from the Malay word ‘penggulung’, which means ‘one that rolls up.’ Care to take a stab at what they do when they feel threatened? ⁣ ⁣ 5. Instead of being attached at the top of the throat (like ours), pangolin tongues attach deep in their chest, close to their last rib. This allows them to pull their insect dinner straight down to their bellies without chewing.⁣ ⁣ 6. Black bellied pangolins have more bones in their tails than any other animal with a total of 46 vertebrae.⁣ ⁣ 7. Pangolins can eat anywhere between 30,000 and 200,000 ants/termites a DAY!⁣ ⁣ 8. The largest pangolin is the giant pangolin, which can weigh up to 75 lbs. Meanwhile, the smallest pangolins are the black bellied pangolins, which weigh up to 5.5 lbs. Huge difference!⁣ ⁣ 9. All of the Asian pangolin species are endangered or critically endangered, and all African pangolins are considered vulnerable, though many conservationists believe that they are also endangered or critically endangered. ⁣ ⁣ 10. Pangolins are the world’s most trafficked animal. ⁣ ⁣ In light all of the tragic recent pangolin events, we really wanted to write an upbeat post that could celebrate this wonderful animal. These scaly anteaters can use all the help they can get. Please consider sharing about them today!⁣ ⁣ Happy World Pangolin Day everyone!!⁣ ⁣ For more trivia, news, and photos of these quirky pinecones follow @pangolinandco⁣ ⁣ 📷: @liberiachimprescueprotection⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #pangolin #pangolins #endangered #worldpangolinday2019 #animallove #conservation #facts #trivia #top10 #animalrights #cause #wildlifephotography #rescue #protect #justice #beautifulcreature #extinction #endangeredanimal #fight #awareness #science #stoppoaching #savethepangolin #conservationist

Happy World Pangolin day 🤗💚 Reposted from @pro_wildlife - Das Schuppentier (auch Pangolin genannt) ist das am meisten gehandelte Säugetier der Welt. Pro Jahr werden geschätzte 100.000 Tiere in Afrika und Asien gefangen. Ihr Fleisch gilt als Delikatesse, ihren Schuppen werden Heilkräfte angedichtet #WorldPangolinDay 👉 www.prowildlife.de/tiere/pango @Regrann from @greatbigstory - There’s no mammal in the world quite like the tree pangolin. Covered in reptilian-like scales that protect it from predators in the wild, the pangolin will curl into a ball when threatened. Unfortunately, such tactics do little to protect it from humans. Pangolins are the most heavily trafficked mammals in the world, and their species is threatened with extinction. — #schuppendere #pangolin #pangolins #endangered #endangeredspecies #wildlife #nature #conservation - #regrann
