Meet @ryanpetersphotography
He will take us to the jungle in Nepal to experience an magic encounter.
After 5 hours of driving, they spotted a Rhino. Keeping a safe distance to not disturb the animal, they came alongside this male. Late afternoon comes and more surprises! A female Rhino & her calf.

This year, we celebrate #WorldRhinoDay just days after 193 Member States of the UN agree to strengthen their commitment to tackle illegal wildlife trafficking, which is killing rhinos worldwide.

Is this the year the political tide has changed?

It’s #WorldRhinoDay! #DYK the word rhinoceros actually comes from the Greek words rhino (nose) and ceros (horn)? Today, few rhinos survive outside national parks and reserves because they are being poached for the very horns that give them their name.

As the Arctic sea ice reaches its annual minimum, there's no better time to remind us of the urgent need to take ambitious climate action for our planet, our home.

If we lose the Arctic, we lose the globe.

😮 Have you heard? Kazakhstan will be the 1st country to bring wild tigers back to Central Asia, where they have gone extinct for nearly half a century!

Wild tigers once prowled from eastern Turkey to the island of Bali - but their home range has since shrunk by over 90%. Kazakhstan’s plan to reintroduce tigers will help protect an important habitat for wildlife + people and contribute to the Tx2 goal to #doubletigers

All life on Earth depends on a healthy ocean. We all rely on it for food, livelihoods and many other services. In fact, they produce about half of the oxygen we breathe, and absorb about 90% of the planet’s excess heat!😯 Irresponsible practices are pushing #oceans to the brink of collapse. Stay tuned for updates from #IMPAC4, where key topics will be discussed - like marine protected areas- to secure the future of the oceans for the benefits they provide to people and nature

The #ocean has been a source of food for tens of thousands of years. It underpins trillions of dollars of economic activity worldwide. Fisheries are an important source of protein for billions of people. It does all this and so much more freely.
Unfortunately, we’re putting unprecedented pressures on our seas now more than ever before. These challenges need to be solved urgently - watch this space as we bring you updates from #IMPAC4, which aims to better protect our amazing oceans, its #biodiversity and the livelihoods that depend on it.

#DYK that the Amazon is TWICE the size of India? 😯

The single largest #rainforest in the world, the #Amazon is an incredible place that houses at least 10% of the world’s unique biodiversity. That’s not all. This magnificent rainforest plays a vital role in fighting #climatechange - highlighting the importance of preserving this rainforest.

Now more than ever, we have to be #togetherfortheamazon. Tell us what you love about this amazing place❤🌳

📝 Recipe for real change - how to cook up a #sustainable path to success:

1️ Take a bankrupt textile factory in China’s industrial heartland.

2️ Mix in real commitment to tackle pollution and safeguard #water resources.

3️ Watch the business take off after some hard work, with other companies taking your lead.

It’s #WorldWaterWeek - there’s no better time to read the Song brothers’ remarkable story on water stewardship.

This is Africa’s Watershed Moment.

By 2050, it will be a very different continent.

Its population will have doubled, soaring by another billion. Its towns and cities will house more people than its rural villages. Its economies will have transformed.

Decisions taken in the next few years about how to manage its water resources will shape this development - and determine whether it is sustainable and inclusive.

WWF and AB InBev, the world’s largest beverage company, have just launched this critical report during World Water Week. Every decision maker on the continent should read it

Over the last 75 years, whale shark numbers have plummeted by a devastating 50%. Some of the biggest threats include fishing, boat collisions, entanglement and more.😟 In spite of this, it’s not too late to save this incredible species. Check out our IG story to discover how responsible whale shark tourism can help protect these endangered giants.

From the clothes we wear, to the food and beverage we love, water is everywhere!

1. Water is in the cotton of your clothes

2. The beans in your coffee (sugar and milk, too). 3. Water flowed through the mines that produced the metals in your phone.

4. Water’s in everything.

Happy World Water Week!

Freshwater is the source of life on earth🌎 . But did you know that only 3% of water on the planet is freshwater and just 1% is readily available for human use?

Great news for the vaquita - the world’s most endangered #marine #mammal.
In recent years, vaquita populations have seen a downward spiral due to unsustainable fishing practices and illegal wildlife trafficking.
The vaquita is often trapped as bycatch in gillnets that have been cast illegally to capture totoaba - also a critically endangered species.
Today, we’re happy to announce that the governments of China, USA and Mexico have committed to put an end to illegal totoaba trade - a move crucial to saving this amazing species!
Now, the governments need to urgently follow through on their commitments #savethevaquita

July was quite a month for conservation efforts across the globe! Protecting vaquitas in Mexico, saving forests in Poland, seeing global leaders reaffirm their commitment to #ClimateChange in Germany, celebrating 6 years of conservation in Laos and Vietnam, improvements in water stewardship in North America and increased pressure on ivory trade in SE Asia are all part of this month’s successes. A pretty impressive month, but what do you want to see changed? Comment below! 💚🐬🌲🌏💧🐘💚

#DYK that Orang-utans play a vital role in seed dispersal and maintaining the health of the forest ecosystem?

86💬

For many in Asia, haze is a serious issue caused by illegal slash and burn practices to clear land to meet the growing demand for palm oil.

This has impacted our environment in many ways, including air pollution, loss of critical habitat for wildlife such as Orang-utans, and more.
