Rp from @endextinctionintl - Today is the first ever World Gorilla Day! 🦍

#DidYouKnow there are 2 species of Gorilla? The Eastern Gorilla (2 subspecies) and the Western Gorilla (2 subspecies). Gorillas are the largest primates in the world, with males reaching up to 200kgs/440lbs in weight!
They live in small family groups consisting of a dominant male, several females and their offspring. Females only produce 1-2 young every 3-4 years, and only 3-4 young over their entire lifetime.

Gorillas are native to Congo, Rwanda, Uganda, Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and Nigeria.

They were upgraded on the IUCN Redlist to Critically Endangered in 2016.

Main threats to Gorillas are:
* Illegal poaching for bushmeat
* Human conflict
* Disease
* Habitat destruction and degradation
* Climate change
* Weak law enforcement * Civil unrest

You can help save Gorillas:
* Don't throw away a good thing- if your mobile/cell phone, tablet or MP3 player is still in good condition and still does the job, won't throw it away for the newest one on the market. One of the biggest threats to Gorilla habitat is Coltan mining. Coltan is used in the production of these devices, and the more we increase the demand for them, the more habitat Gorillas lose. If you do buy a new device, recycle your old one! The Coltan in old devices can be recycled and put into new devices, reducing the need for mining.
* Do not support bushmeat trade, and report any suspicious activity to local and international authorities.
* Reduce your carbon footprint and support green energy and products
* Support ecotourism such as Gorilla treks
* Donate to @savinggorillas

@Regrann from @activistvegan - Even if fish was the healthiest food on Earth, it wouldn't be worth destroying the planet for it. But fish isn't even healthy. Best case scenario, you get a small fish low on the food chain that happens to be high in omega 3s, like sardines. More often, people consume larger fish high on the food chain which are low in omega 3s, devoid of fiber, and full of saturated fat, cholesterol, PCBs, and mercury. Fish these days are also more likely to carry parasites due to rising ocean temperatures.
Most importantly, fish are smart, conscious individuals whose lives matter to them. For every 1 lb of fish caught, up to 5 are discarded dead as bycatch. Discarded fishing nets are killing endangered wild sea creatures like turtles. Most fish in developed countries now come from developing countries where human trafficking is common. We have devastated the oceans so badly that it is predicted they will be devoid of edible fish by 2048.
There is NOT ONE THING that is ethical, sustainable, or health-promoting about consuming seafood. Go vegan ✌🏼β™₯️🌱
Scene from @WTHfilm check it out on #Netflix 6/16/17, executively produced by ο’šJoaquin Phoenix ο’š.

"Somewhere in Lengkong, West-Java, there is a Mahogany production forest patch. It is the home of a silvery gibbon family group. Because the leaves of the Mahogany tree are not their natural food source, the villagers support the group by offering them fruits.

However, on the long run, this group will go extinct..." πŸ’ The silvery gibbon is one of the most threatened primates. Help saving the silvery gibbon by supporting @wanicare_foundation

So... I'm writing a book now. The name that's been given is Eclipse. This is the book cover and it is still in the works, but as I progress through it, I'll explain more information on the book.

Grey's anatomy reruns, white wine, and drawing... #rocking #saturdaynight ... just been reading about the Tasmanian Tiger (a carnivorous marsupial! 😳) that went extinct in 1936. Anyone who denies climate change (especially with all the hurricanes and earthquakes lately) or refuses to consider the impact of humans is insane! Sad the Tasmanian Tiger is no longer with us. 😻

Photo by @crossbowhuntress My favorite shot of the day. A mother and baby Przewalski's Wild Horse. These amazing animals are extinct in the wild as of the 1960s.
