Happy #WorldOrangutanDay🐵💕!!! My oil painting “Gimme Shelter” highlights the plight of this iconic great ape, which may soon be extinct in the wild. Such a fate would not only be a tragedy for one of our closest living relatives, but a disaster for the tropical forests of Southeast Asia that it inhabits. Orangutans spread the seeds of the fruits they eat, promoting plant diversity. 🌱 We all need to work together to PROTECT these important animals by buying and using LESS and not supporting the products (Google search palm oil) that are destroying their habitats. @leonardodicaprio @leonardodicapriofdn #InternationalOrangutanDay

Photo by @FransLanting When male orangutans mature they develop impressive skin flaps that make them look quite different from females. But skin flaps or not, orangutans are not holding their own in the forests of Indonesia and Malaysia. The population of orangutans in Borneo has been decimated during the last 15 years. Habitat loss was a major reason, but even in intact forests the decline was dramatic and probably caused by direct killings. I’m sharing this image in recognition of @WorldOrangutanDay on August 19. Learn more and lend your support to the groups below, who are working to save both orangutans and their habitat. Follow me @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more images of our endangered relatives on the great tree of life. @orangutanfoundationintl @world_wildlife @leonardodicaprio @leonardodicapriofdn #WorldOrangutanDay #palmoilfreeproducts #orangutanalliance #Orangutan #Endangered #Ape #Borneo

Photo by @FransLanting Two orphaned orangutans are clinging to each other at a rehab center in northern Borneo. Orangutans are the last great apes that survive in Asia. They live only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra, and they are endangered due to the massive destruction of their forest habitat. Nearly half of all orangutans, a staggering 150,000 in all, vanished from Borneo during the last 15 years according to a recent study. Orangutans are also victims of the illegal pet trade—babies are captured by poachers who often kill their mothers to reach them. It is imperative that we protect the forests orangutans depend on to insure that our relatives on the family tree of life will be with us beyond our own lifetime. In recognition of @WorldOrangutanDay on August 19 I welcome you to support the organizations that are in the front lines of protecting orangutans through public activities and through covert actions aimed at busting wildlife criminals. @Freelandfoundation @World_Wildlife and @WildAid need your help. Follow us @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more encounters with orangutans and other endangered animals around the world. @leonardodicapriofoundation #WorldOrangutanDay #InternationalOrangutanDay #Borneo #Family #Twins #Orphans #Endangered #Wildlife

Introducing Sophia at Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary.
The name Sophia, derived from Greek, means wisdom.
Today, Petronel and her Care for Wild team removed Sophia’s blindfold while she was suckling her bottle of milk. On top of all the wounds she is already dealing with, removing her blindfold has revealed that her right eye seems to be slightly injured as well. If anyone is interested in becoming Sophia’s sponsor by supporting her monthly needs, please send us an email to donate@careforwild.co.za for information or leave a comment with your email address and we will contact you. Otherwise, if anyone would like to make a donation, please visit our website at www.careforwild.co.za/donate or you can buy Sophia some groceries such as Teff hay, or denkavit milk powder from our online rhino mart at https://rhinosos.com/rhino-grocery-market/ @dr.evanantin @drchrisbrown @jocksafari @youth4africanwildlife @oldmutualsa @konicaminoltasa @tracn4 @theellenshow @kp24 @princeharryfoundations @peaceparks @empowersafrica @tpw_foundation #careforwildrhinosanctuary #careforwild #cfwrs #krugernationalpark #savetherhino #helicopter #rescue #rehabilitate #release #donate #orphanedrhinos #stoppoachingnow #babyrhinorescue #sanparks #hyena #injuredrhino #southafrica #wildlife #whiterhino

In recognition of #WorldOrangutanDay on August 19, I'm reposting my most popular photograph, "Orangutan in The Rain." This sweet, gentle and smart being who shares 98% of the same DNA as us human is under threat from extinction. In the last 15 years, 150,000 of them died in the forest of Borneo. That's 10,000 every year. What causes their death? Human destruction of forest and illegal pet trade. Poachers often kill the mothers to take the babies and sell them in black market. This inhuman barbarism really need to stop and you can help. Please support the organizations that protects the Orangutan from such acts @World_Wildlife @WildAid @Freelandfoundation @leonardodicaprio @leonardodicapriofdn Feel free to follow the photographer @andrewsuryono and repost this picture to help spread the words. #worldorangutanday #internationalorangutanday #borneo #endangered #wildlife

J50 Scarlet Update:
-
After conducting a visual health assessment and administrating a dose of antibiotics, NOAA scientists continued to monitor J50 and proceeded with an experimental live fish release off the west side of San Juan Island on August 12. Eight live hatchery Chinook salmon were released about 75 to 100 yards in front of J50 and she appeared to react to the released fish by diving quickly. However, biologists could not confirm from the vessel whether she took the fish. Since then scientists have collected fecal samples from a group of three J pod whales: J50 Scarlet, J42 Echo (Scarlet’s older sister) and J16 Slick (Scarlet’s mother). One sample showed high levels of Contracaecum, a nematode parasite, although its unknown which whale the sample came from. NOAA stated “the worm is not usually a problem in healthy animals. However, in animals that are emaciated or are otherwise compromised, the parasite can penetrate the stomach lining, introducing bacterial infection to the bloodstream, or it can bore into internal organs.” If the fecal sample containing the high levels of Contracaecum belonged to Scarlet her life could be at risk. To combat this, veterinarians have updated her treatment priorities to include antibiotics and a dewormer. Although news of contracaecum infecting one of J pod’s whales is far from desirable, it’s good NOAA’s team of veterinarians and biologists finally know what they’re dealing with.

Today is International Orangutan Day! A day to remind us all, how wonderful it is to have these beautiful and intelligent animals on our planet.This is a young male orangutan, who I was very lucky to observe in the rainforest at Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary. He was entertaining to observe, with his childlike enthusiasm for life (And coconuts!). #internationalanimalrescue #internationalorangutanday #Orangutan #Ape #Primate #RedApe #Endangered #Criticallyendangered #Wildlife #Photography #Wildlifephotography #Sepilok #SepilokOrangutanSanctuary #SepilokRehabilitationCentre #AnimalSanctuary #Savewildlife #Rainforest #Sabah #Borneo #Malaysia #Asia #Travel #TravelAsia #Traveltheworld #Traveldream
