#Regram #RG @lionrecovery: Lions are an 'umbrella species'—investing in their conservation protects habitats and all of the species living inside those habitats. YOU can help us in this work of turning landscapes into lionscapes at lionrecoveryfund.org (link in bio).

#Regram #RG @unccd: A significant proportion of managed and natural ecosystems are degrading: over the last two decades, approximately 20 per cent of the #Earth’s vegetated surface shows persistent declining trends in productivity, mainly as a result of land/water use and management practices.

#Regram #RG @africanparksnetwork: Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve has had a difficult past. Decades of poaching and lawlessness saw a previously productive 1,800 km2 reserve with 1,500 elephants in the 1990’s reduced to fewer than 100 individuals. Game animals were hunted out. Nkhotakota had become an empty Reserve. With wildlife practically gone, there was no reason to visit Nkhotakota, no revenue, no productivity, and little to no value for the surrounding communities. But African Parks had a different vision for the most extensive remaining wild landscape in Malawi, one that included bringing it back to life. Upon assuming management in 2015, we immediately began preparing Nkhotakota for one of the world’s largest wildlife translocations. By August 2017, over a two-year period, the park received almost 500 elephants and 2,000 other animals. Poaching has been dramatically reduced through the presence of a well-trained and equipped ranger team, tourism has begun to increase, and the birth of new calves born in the park from the 2016 translocated elephants has already been documented. Extreme measures were taken to restore this landscape, and it was an extraordinary collaboration between the Government of Malawi, our donors and the team in Nkhotakota. It is early days, but in only two short years, already this park symbolises possibility and what nature can do with our help if only given the chance.

Our work in Nkhotakota would not be possible without the support of our key partners: the DNPW, @postcodeloterij , @peoplespostcodelottery , Stichting Dioraphte, the Wyss Foundation and WWF-Belguim.⠀

#Regram #RG @oceana: Great news for our oceans! Today, #Starbucks announced plans to eliminate plastic straws from its 28,000 stores worldwide! Starbucks distributes more than 1 billion straws a year, so this news is a great step in breaking free from plastic. Learn more about plastic in our oceans, and how you can #BreakFreeFromPlastic, by following the link in our bio.

The #vaquita is the world's smallest and most endangered porpoise, and scientists estimate there’s fewer than 30 of them left on Earth. This International #SavetheVaquita Day, help @LeonardoDiCaprioFdn and @NRDC_ORG fight to protect the vaquita before we lose them forever. Follow the link in bio to learn more.
#Regram #RG @rainforestalliance: Bees are nature's unsung heroes. 🐝 Not only is their honey delicious and medicinal, but their pollinating prowess makes them essential to the circle of life. In fact, about 75% of the world's food crops depend on bees and other pollinators.
Conventional agriculture practices—including the overuse of agrochemicals and habitat destruction—are killing off bee populations around the world, bringing us closer to the brink of a pollination crisis. Yet there is reason for hope; sustainable farming methods used on Rainforest Alliance Certified farms support the biodiversity that is essential to bees, and to humans too.
For communities we work with in Guatemala's Petén region, honey production provides an economic alternative, beyond sustainable timber harvesting, that allows them to earn money and conserve their forests at the same time.

#Regram #RG @wwf: Great news! Belize is now OFF the @UNESCO in danger list😀👏This was made possible by your continuous support and the collective effort of the Belize coalition. .
#DYK that over 11 million people living in and near #WorldHeritage sites depend on them for food, water, medicine and jobs? World Heritage sites belong to all of us, and we must continue to play our part to protect them. #SaveOurHeritage
We produced the documentary, @VirungaMovie, a few years ago to raise awareness about the need to protect the last mountain gorillas. Recent news on oil threats remind us of the need to remain vigilant in protecting Virunga. @VirungaNationalPark has worked hard to build economic alternatives to oil for the local communities. Any decommissioning of the park would destroy that work, create more environmental damage and threaten the endangered mountain gorillas. Click on the link in bio to find out how you can help.
