australiazoo Our team have been busy today on the #CrocTrip2015! They set up two gate traps in different sites along the beautiful Wenlock River on the #SteveIrwinWildlifeReserve - one named “Rock Hole” and the other “Red Canyon”. The team worked super hard to put these together, and are really looking forward to planting some bait in a couple of days’ time and waiting for a big #croc to come and investigate! For more photos and daily updates on the trip, go to: www.australiazoo.com.au 3min

jared68nova The Walleye Surfperch ... much like it's cousin the Barred Surfperch except with huge eyes, a taller body and a bigger mouth. When properly prepared they taste exactly like mushy dog shit🏼. #CatchAndRelease #ShrimpPiranha #Walleye #SurfFishing #SurfPerch #Variety #Biology #Biodiversity #BustinLip #GetOutside #Ocean #Beach #MarineBiology #Ichthyology #WildlifePhotography #NaturePhotos #Adaptation #Evolution #NaturalHistory #Conservation #AfterWerkPerkz #Fishing #Fish #Saltwater #SportsMan 30min

This image of a mother and her cub graces the cover of my book Tigers Forever, published by @natgeo and written by environmental journalist Sharon Guynup. 10% of proceeds from book sales go directly to @PantheraCats tiger conservation efforts."Tigers Forever" spans my career photographing these beautiful creatures while telling the story of their fight for survival. Lost of habitat, illegal poaching and animal-human conflict are three of the biggest issues facing today's remaining 3,000 or so wild tigers. Good news is there are solutions to these issues and many tiger conservation groups are working to implement these solutions. Visit TigersForeverBook.com to learn about these organizations and how you can help. #tiger #wildlife #motherandchild #wildlifephotography #conservation #wildlifeconservation #India #bandhavgarh #animalsinthewild #BigCatsForever #Tiger #Tigersforever #NatGeo #Bigcats #NatGeoLive #wildlife #BigCatInitiative #BCI #saveourtigers #savethetiger #InternationalTigerDay #SavetheTiger #5forBigCats

detroitdangerous I wasn't gonna go in on this issue, but over the last week ive been steadily getting more pissed so I decided to back up my fellow African @angelcandices and contribute. This is me, like 7 years ago, in Rwanda, on the border with the Congo (DRC), in the Volcanoes National Park. Behind me, sits a wild female Mountain Gorilla, a species with less than 900 individuals, found nowhere else on earth but for 3 national parks in central Africa, one of the most volatile regions on earth. Hiking through dense rain forest with machetes, escorted by a guide, a military escort and a tracker, all while dressed like a fluorescent d-bag cost me $500 USD. continued... #africa #rwanda #zimbabwe #southafrica #travel #safari #hiking #hunting #conservation #poaching #gorilla #cecil #lion #cecilthelion #bigbossroberts #jimmykimmel #tusk #candice #africanamerican #gopro #outdoors #preservation #fluorescentdbag #thenorthface #delta #virginatlantic #richardbranson photocred: @mitchesbcrazy 31min
  •   detroitdangerous That also included the relevant permits to enter the national park. While that is a small price to pay for what remains one of the greatest and most humbling experiences in my life, that money provides an incentive for the locals to do everything they can to keep the species alive. If not for outsiders bringing money in, humans would have relegated the mountain gorilla to the pages of National Geographic. It is this sort of tourism that preserves species, not the sort preached by idiots like Ted Nugent and gun slinging morons from the west who feel the need to have animal heads on their basement walls. What sort of fuck gains please from shooting dead what remains of Africa's large mammals. More importantly what gives some people, foreigners driven in air conditioned vehicles to places they can't pronounce, the right to steal precious resources, belonging not just to specific countries, but to the entire next generation. As more of the scumbags who think hunting using bait, calls, high powered rifles, bows and stacks of dollars are exposed, it's about time we treated these people as what they really are, poachers, thieves and cowards. I hope that the remaining species in Africa, the ones everyone learns about as a child, are given the best shot at survival. I hope they will be there for everyone who's always dreamed about seeing an elephant, a lion, a Rhino or gorilla in the wild. We can start by giving a royal fuck you to guys like #walterpalmer and donating any amount to a wildlife charity of your choice (I have just finished donating to a personal favorite of mine Tusk, supporting both mountain and lowland gorillas, as well as the last remaining rhinos). Also, sign the petition to urge the US government to extradite Dr. Palmer back to Zimbabwe on poaching charges. I'm sure he'll have a great time, and will get to enjoy a much longer vacation this time around in a country well regarded for record breaking hyperinflation, a stellar human rights record and of course, everyone's favorite African dictator, Robby Mugabe! I hope the Zimbabwe judicial system gives him the same level of fairness that he provided to Cecil. 30min

arvindkhanna19 Love the way locals connect with nature. One of the local deity revolve around a tree. People always offer prayer before leaving the village and special prayer for any special occasions. #photo #story from #himalayan #birdcount #agoda #trek #travel #trekking  #Himalayas #incredibleindia #incredibleindiaofficial  #Nikon #D90 #nature #conservation #ecotourism #bird #birding #travelling #Photostory #experience #life #hills #mountains #clouds #uttarakhand #India #travelling #traveller #belief #nikonphotography 31min

ifuxwitplants Verbena hastata; Blue vervain. There's some sort of charm with this plant that i can't even describe in words amongst other natives that i know what i like and don't like. The plant can grow quite tall, a few in my neighboring prairie are at least 5 feet tall, for some reason i think the condition and quality of native soil allowed them to grow tall or possibly senescence of the colony that allows greater tenacity with a much stronger bloom. The flowers are extremely small and range from purple and a light purple, and even the pollinators take a good look at this plant when passing by. The flowers look like rocket ships or missiles to me, take your pick, but regardless of how you view it or label it, this plant is a brilliant aspect to bring into your suburban landscape for a soft touch of color concerning design and an added benefit with this being a native plant, cross watering off your schedule for it too! Currently looking over a plethora of magazines for spring bulbs which allows me to also brainstorm color schemes all around the sanctuary. Now is the time to order spring bulbs with a lower cost, up to 25% - 50% off, if you get them early. A plant geek goes nuts for any bargain concerning plants! #horticulture #seeds #horticulturist #botany #botanical #plants #plantgeek #conservation #career #entomology #succulove #guyswhogrow #propagation #growing #succulents #greenthumb #science #biology #gardening #physiology #pathology #hydrology #vscocam #igmacro #instascience #instaplants #hobby #passion #howdoyougrow #xercessociety #gardening 39min
