What does indigenous resistance on the frontlines of oil expansion in the Amazon look like? The Waorani people are showing the world. Watch this video about the Waorani’s movement to protect their rainforest territory from destruction at the hands of the oil industry and then sign the petition telling the oil companies that the most biodiverse place on Earth is not for sale.

#Regram #RG @conservationorg: With a responsibility for 10% of the world’s ocean surface, 23 Pacific countries and territories came together to form the Pacific Oceanscape. This framework was put in place in order to protect, manage and sustain the Pacific Ocean’s cultural and natural integrity. Here at @ConservationOrg, we work hand-in-hand with these communities and governments across the #Pacific to conserve critical habitats in the region, including islands, coasts and the open #ocean.
If we don’t act now, oil companies will continue to push deeper and deeper into the most biodiverse rainforest on Earth, threatening one of our planet’s most important defenses against climate change and the indigenous peoples who have lived there for millennia. The Waorani people, guardians of this ancient forest, are united in resistance. Stand with them by signing their declaration that their rainforest is not for sale.

Proud of the great work from the @leonardodicapriofdn and Wildlife Conservation Network initiative, @LionRecovery Fund (LRF). They recently announced six new grants in key lion sites across Africa. Each of these projects shows there is hope for lions to recover. Link in bio to learn about the different projects.

#Regram #RG @oceana: Opening the floodgates to dirty and dangerous offshore drilling is a catastrophe waiting to happen for marine life, coastal communities and our oceans. President Trump’s radical offshore drilling plan puts oil industry priorities ahead of people, ignoring widespread local and state opposition. SPEAK UP! Tell President Trump and Secretary Zinke: No new offshore drilling before our oceans, marine life and communities pay the ultimate price. (Link in bio) #ProtectOurCoast

#Regram #RG @conservationorg: A new bill in #Hawaii looks ban companies from selling #sunscreen with two chemicals that damage #coral #reefs. The bill would make Hawaii the first state in the U.S. to enact legislation designed to protect marine #ecosystems by banning sunscreens with such chemicals.
#Regram #RG @lionrecovery: Lions can benefit people! The tourism industry in Africa is already worth a staggering USD34 billion per year and is set to expand with growing global demand among the world’s public to see species such as lions. Many African countries are currently overly dependent on commodities or agriculture, and nature-based tourism can diversify and grow economies. However, the potential of the tourism industry will ONLY be realised if much greater investment is made in protecting the assets on which it depends. This means more funding for the protection of lions and other wildlife, and for the management of the wilderness areas on which they depend. Perspective from LRF Director, @petelindseyafrica

#Regram #RG @world_wildlife: Results from the largest ever research study of gorillas and chimpanzees in Western Equatorial Africa show population numbers higher than first believed. The bad news is that 80% of these great apes live outside of protected areas. To save them we must address their greatest threats: poaching, illegal logging, and habitat destruction. You can read more about the study by following the link in our bio.
#Regram #RG @AmazonFrontlines:
What do you do when the oil industry has poisoned your drinking water? ⠀
In the northern Ecuadorian Amazon, indigenous communities are building their own solutions through systems that collect and filter rainwater. ⠀
You can help them reach their goal: link in bio.⠀
