Big news from CI: This weekend, from the stage of Rock and Rio, Brazilian singer Ivete Sangalo, alongside Gisele Bundchen, announced a massive reforestation effort in the Brazilian region of the Amazon. CI is proud to join our partners in this audacious effort to restore 73 million trees to the Brazilian Amazon. “Together, as Gisele said, we are stronger. Let us never forget that… This is the proof that it's worth dreaming and that together we are more. Long live Brazil, long live our Amazon, long live our planet,” said Sangalo from the stage. This is a huge milestone, but much work remains. Want to keep the momentum going? Act now: conservation.org/protect Photo CC Ariel Martini/ I Hate Flash

There's less than 8 hours to speak out to save our national marine monuments. Take action now (see link in bio). Add your voice to the millions speaking out to save our marine national monuments.
Papahānaumokuākea and other marine protected areas are still very much at risk of having their national monument statuses reduced or revoked. In fact, a New York Times article* recently listed Papahānaumokuākea as one of the top five monuments under threat. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has already extended the period for public comments. With this window of opportunity fast closing, we’ve got to make these final hours count.

Elephants are truly worth more alive than dead. But if these animals continue to be slaughtered for their ivory at current rates, then in the near future, we will live in a world without elephants. They say an elephant never forgets, so in honor of #WorldElephantDay today, take our pledge to remember the true value of an elephant (see link in bio).

#regram Looking forward to this new Washington Post series exploring the Arctic. Washington Post reporter Chris Mooney and video journalist @byaliceli boarded the research vessel the Amundsen on Saturday, August 5th. They're accompanying the research vessel on its voyage through the Northwest Passage. It's part of the ArcticNet research consortium out of Universite Laval in Quebec City, to see what they discover about seas and subsea landscapes that are still unknown or underreported.
Yesterday, Li posted this photo to her account from the deck of the Amundsen as they plowed through a sea of ice on their way to the research sites. #regram @washingtonpost.

. --Regram from Alice Li, original post: -- "@byaliceli The Amundsen may be modestly sized compared to other ice breakers, but it makes up for it in might. We plowed through a dense field of sea ice yesterday and today to get to the sites where the scientists on board will begin conducting their experiments in earnest. Starting at midnight, the next 30 hours are going to be a buzz of activity on deck. Good thing the sun never sets this time of year!"

Every 15 minutes, an elephant is killed for its ivory — and this cruel, gruesome practice could drive the species to extinction within a generation. The Sarara Initiative, a model of sustainable community-based conservation, is working toward the security for elephants and people.
