Amazing privilege to work on the "Holy grail" of tortoises recently. The ploughshare tortoise is possibly the world's most critically endangered tortoise species. Native to Madagascar, their numbers have been decimated due to habitat loss and poaching (aka humans). In 2012, estimates were less than 200 adults left in the wild. Current estimates are only 50-100 adults left....part of me is really sad that one day in the near future, I might tell my son, "I examined and worked on the last of it's kind". If you love nature and wildlife conservation, please head over to @turtleconservancy and support their work to save endangered species! #tortoise #tortoisesofinstagram #reptiles #reptilesofinstagram #nature #animals #herps #herpsofinstagram #zoo #herpetology #turtles #chelonian #zoovet #exoticvet #vetmed #medicine #ploughshare #veterinarian #veterinaria #vetschool #vettech #vetstudent #zookeeper #reptilesmagazine #endangeredspecies

#Repost @johannesburgwildlifevet with @get_repost ・・・ WORLD PANGOLIN DAY: Today on #WorldPangolinDay, we continue to help spread awareness and be a voice for pangolin. Pangolin are now considered the most trafficked mammal on earth. Pangolin meat is considered a delicacy in Asia where the scales are also used in traditional medicine. In Africa, pangolins are killed for the bushmeat market as well as traditional medicine. We have one species of pangolin in South Africa, the Temminck’s ground pangolin (Smutsia temminckii). Our hospital staff are specialists in treating this particular species. Over the past two years of our hospital doors being opened, our dedicated wildlife specialists, in collaboration with the African Pangolin Working Group and @hsiafrica, have worked tirelessly with over 40 pangolin. Once released in a safe environment, these pangolin are monitored regularly with telemetry - not only ensuring their safety, but providing invaluable research data. Pangolin are generally named after where they were confiscated, as it allows caregivers and authorities to easily remember details surrounding that particular one’s circumstances. The rescue, rehabilitation and successful release of pangolin is an arduous process. The highest of highs and the lowest of lows are experienced by our team. It’s tough, extremely stressful, dangerous, involves hours of treatment, research, and searching for ants. However, when releases are successful, it’s elating, inspiring and keeps our team going. We are extremely privileged to work with this elusive species and be part of a team that works tirelessly to promote the plight of pangolin and save the species. The ultimate privilege, however, would be to see pangolin free, in the wild, without the threat of human greed and cruelty. We treat indigenous wildlife free of charge, relying on the community for donations and support. _____________________ ______________________________ 📷: Sarah Kempen | @itssarahious #KeepingItWild #MakingADifference #WorldPangolinDay #AfricanPangolinWorkingGroup #HSIAfrica #endangeredspecies #conservation #pangolin #pangolinconservation #pangolins #groundpangolin

Today is #worldpangolinday. In case you didn't know, #pangolins are awesome & my favourite animal, so I thought I'd share some of my #pangolin collection & provide some info to help raise #awareness. . . Pangolins are the only mammals in the world to be covered in protective scales. These scales are made of keratin, the same material found in human fingernails. They are great protection against predators but sadly not against poachers. Pangolins eat ants & termites which they pick up with their long sticky tongues There are eight species of pangolin. Four species in Africa & four in Asia The biggest species is the giant pangolin, found in Africa, measuring up to 1.8m long and weighing up to 75lbs. The pangolin is the most widely #trafficked mammal in the world. Over the past decade over a million have been illegally taken from the wild. Its scales are in high demand in Asia for use in traditional Chinese medicine, despite there being no medical benefit for their use! While its meat is considered a delicacy in some countries. All eight pangolin species are protected under national and international laws, and two are listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. . . #animal #animals #wildlife #rare #endangered #endangeredspecies #endangeredanimal #wild #savewildlife #conservation #pangolintattoo #tattoo #bornfree #pangi #restnamibia #poaching #asia #africa #savethepangolin

Pretty slow night out on the ice last night but imagine my surprise when I pulled up this beast! It’s not the first time I’ve caught a sturgeon but it’s always an amazing experience catching these prehistoric fish. After taking measurements on the fish (37 inches, 14lbs) we quickly released the ole girl to swim another day. #catchandrelease
