A disgraceful & clueless decision by @usfws to allow #blackrhino “trophy” hunt import with the species on the brink of extinction. Pandering to the very worst element in the nation. #US should lead in #conservation not destroy. #worldrhinoday #bantrophyhunting #rhinohorniskeratin like hair & toenails. #educate to eradicate #rhino #poaching & prevent #extinction of #rhinoceros. #rhinos #wildlife #animals #nature #conservation #endangeredspecies Link: http://m.humanesociety.org/new g/news/press_releases/2018/09/ 8/09/-grant-rhino-trophy-impor

Meet the newest addition to our zoo....Lily....a girl Red Panda that was born June 6th to 1st time parents Dash & Dr. Erin Curry. Lily was named after the Veterinarian who tracked her mom's pregnancy & found the little cub in the ultrasound. What makes this so unique is that her mom was also named after a Veterinarian. The pics were hard to take because she decided to play a little "peek-a-boo" but we didn't mind! Just finally seeing that precious face was better than taking pics! The last pic is her mom Dr. Erin coming outside for a brief second, turning around & going back inside. I can't wait until winter with this little one! #redpandas #panda #redpandababy #cuteanimals #zoobaby #visitmke #endangeredspecies #visitthezoo

Today, 22 September, is #WorldRhinoDay - dedicated to the magnificent Rhinocerotidae (more commonly known as the #rhino). The day offers an opportunity to reflect on the current plight of the rhino: Over the past six years, it is estimated that a quarter of the world's rhinos have been killed by poachers. If poaching is allowed to continue at the current rate of poaching, rhinos in the wild will be extinct by 2024. Of the five species of rhino, all are under threat and considered either extinct, high endangered or on a sliding path towards extinction. Let's do something now, before it's too late! I am proud to support @ausrhinoproject #operationrhinodrop #. From another perspective, I support @thingreenlinefoundation in providing assistance to the #rangers who are on the front line in the battle to protect rhinos from poachers. #africa #wildlife #wildlifephotography #fauna #endangered #endangeredspecies #nature #naturephotography #canon #canon_photos #magicalkenya #africanamazing

Climbing mountains for Andean Condors ... Bearing witness to the world’s largest Raptor and flying bird in its natural habitat, more than 4000m above sea-level, is something one can simply describe as majestic. One of the deepest canyons on Earth (twice that of the Grand Canyon), Peru’s Colca Canyon, with its winding Inca terraces, live volcanoes, waterfalls and exotic mountain scenery, is home to the endangered Andean Condor. With a wingspan over three metres and weighing up to 15kg, these mighty beasts of highland skies use thermal updrafts from Colca’s natural hot springs to glide magnificently across the sparse walls of the shadowy canyon.

For #worldrhinoday 🦏 I decided to post this picture of a young Eastern Cape White Rhino that managed to survive a brutal poaching attack this past Spring. —————————————————————— to poach rhino horns involve killing the animal so she was very lucky to have made it out alive. ———————————————————— Sh was badly mutilated. In hacking the horn from her body, poachers severely damaged her face and fractured her nasal bone. ———————————————————— Her wounds became infested with maggots.———————————————————— A major surgery was performed by some very wonderful people that rescued her. She is shown here with her cast and is now resting in a protected area. ———————————————————— 🙏� God, I do not understand how humans could be so brutal towards the innocent life we are blessed to have had the chance to live amongst. Please watch over these beautiful creatures, they do not deserve to suffer at the hands of these poaching monsters. ——————————————- God please protect the men and women of @vetpaw while they put their lives at risk to help these beautiful babies. #whiterhino #stoppoaching #animals #wildlife #safari #nature #elephant #africa #art #animal #rhinoceros #rhinos #giraffe #elephants #southafrica #zoo #photography #lion #nashorn #love #zebra #animalsofinstagram #summer #buffalo #travel #endangeredspecies

About 5000 #blackrhino left on #earth. Unbridled poaching & corruption leaves the black rhino in total jeopardy.

By 1993, fewer than 2,300 rhinos remained from populations numbering more than 65,000 in the 1970s. Today, black rhino numbers hover around 5,000 animals, but, like white rhinos, they are being particularly hard-hit by a poaching epidemic. . . . . #KeeptheFiveAlive #rhino #rhinos #TeamRhino #rhinopoaching #stopthetrade #savetherhino #myhornisnotmedicine #rhinohorn #wildlifeconservation #wildlife

As it is world rhino day I thought I would post this today. Not my best but didn't get many of the rhinos.This fella was great to watch, playfully chasing a younger rhino and also running after a zebra! A true gentle giant and I love how they look almost prehistoric. Sadly they are still inexplicably poached for their horns.🙁 . . . #worldrhinoday #savetherhino #wildlifephotography #wildlifephoto #Whiterhino #blackrhino #rhino #animalelite #marvelouz_animals #criticallyendangered #wwf #bbcearth #natgeowild #rhinohorn #rhinoconservation #stoppoaching #endangeredspecies #exclusive_wildlife #animalplanet #amatuerphotography #hobbyphotographer @anthonypro4

Together with our Indonesian partner Yayasan Badak Indonesia, we have developed the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary, located on the island of Sumatra. The successful breeding program there has led to plans to double the size of the sanctuary. Construction is now underway with the expanded breeding facility scheduled to open in Spring 2019. 🦏 #KeeptheFiveAlive #rhino #rhinos #TeamRhino #rhinopoaching #stopthetrade #savetherhino #myhornisnotmedicine #rhinohorn #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #sumatranrhino #indonesia

These two share a special connection. ¡Feliz cumpleaños! to our biologist Miguel Gómez, @sierrasygatos. Today is also the five-year anniversary of “Elvis” on the Northern Jaguar Reserve. While Elvis already held the title as our longest-recorded male jaguar, we are excited to reach this milestone anniversary. Elvis' story is fascinating. We had two photos of him in September 2013. Then he was not seen for more than two years. He re-appeared sporadically in 2016, followed by another yearlong gap. Everything changed last December. Since then, we have had more than 90 photos and videos of Elvis throughout the Viviendo con Felinos ranches and across the entirety of the Northern Jaguar Reserve. View some of our favorites at the link in our bio.
