  • Yup. It’s like that. Let’s change this trajectory so that our children may be able to know these creatures as well and not just their fossils in a museum. Ugh. How do we atop these poachers?!?! I saw one thing about dying their horns bright colors so they’re ruined for use. What other ways have you heard of to stop poachers?

  • 33.3%. That is the approximate amount of the global food supply that bees are responsible for.

    Many scientists hypothesize that if these endangered animals go extinct, humanity will not have enough food to continue for very long.

    Pesticides used on conventionally grown food and weed killers sprayed in fields/backyards are one of the leading causes for the bees’ sudden rise in Colony Collapse Disorder.

    Some things you can do to help bees: shop for local produce at farmer’s markets as often as possible, and ask the farmers if they use pesticides. Support the ones who do not. If you live in cold climates and shopping at farmer’s markets year round isn’t a realistic option, purchase organic as often as you can afford. While the organic food movement has some flaws, overwhelmingly it uses way less pesticides than traditional crops.

    Other options include: planting a bee-friendly garden, hanging a bee house outside, and providing a shallow bowl of water (with marbles in it so the bees don’t drown) for them to drink from on the hot summer days. Though it’s the middle of winter, it’s never too early to start planning how you will help these fuzzy lil’ creatures💛🐝🖤

  • According to reports on climate change, most of the world’s coral reefs could die by the end of this century as a result of bleaching, which occurs when above average sea temperatures upset the balance of coral with algae that inhabit its tissue. If disrupted, corals expel their algae, which causes them to turn white and become vulnerable to disease and death.


    Coral reefs, one of the most diverse habitats in the world, cover just 0.1% of the ocean floor, yet they support approximately 25% of the world’s fish biodiversity. A study published last year by Science revealed that bleaching events have become five times more frequent. In the 1980s, the average reef was affected every 25 to 30 years. Today, bleaching events occur once every six years. Although coral reefs can recover from occasional bleaching events over time, recurring bleaching will kill off entire reefs.

  • The time has come to unveil Rachel's latest work, depicting the Incredible Imperial Amazon and simply titled "Maria". “Maria”

    In September 2017 the people of Dominica collectively stared death in the face, not for a brief moment, but for over 6 long hours, praying that they and their families would survive, but with an immense fear that they would not. Hurricane Maria was not discriminatory, nor did she act with prejudice, she destroyed everything in her path with brute force the like of which has not been witnessed in living memory. No person or animal could possibly escape her fury; such was the magnitude of this mighty storm.

    The flora and fauna wore the brunt of Maria’s force and it is now clear that the populations of both the Sisserou or Imperial Amazon and the Jaco or Red-necked Amazon have been left totally devastated by this natural disaster. Make no mistake; both species are NOW under serious threat of extinction. “Maria” by Rachel Lewis, is a breathtaking, yet raw and emotion stirring artwork depicting a lone female Imperial Amazon, dubbed Maria, amongst the backdrop of destruction left by the worst hurricane to hit the region in living memory. Is the fate of the species resting solely on Maria’s shoulders…. only time will tell.

  • Literally what our dreams look like. Thank you for this incredible post from our Ohana @pnwprotectors 🙌🏽 Orca in a sea of starlight: Happy and fed, thriving & singing and free!
    This photograph is Hope. It’s the picture I fathom when the dams are breached and the Chinook salmon return in millions. When the seawater is serene & clean & silent with not one trace of pollution. When the estuaries & habitats thrive and the whole ecosystem is restored and healed. When there are hundreds of singing, nourished, well fed happy Southern Resident Orcas swimming in the Salish Sea. .

    Happy Friday dear Orca protectors! .
    .
    .
    🔹Let’s all dream this photograph dream into reality. .
    .
    . 🔹Let’s all flood Washington Governor Jay Inslee with our calls this afternoon before the office closes:
    1 (360) 902-4111 .
    .
    .
    .
    . 🔹Let’s get our pens out to write our Orca letters this weekend... (addresses in our ‘letter campaign’ highlights. .
    .
    .
    . 🔹Let’s all tell as many friends and family members about the starving 75 salmon-eating Southern Resident Orcas of the Salish Sea. The more people who know, the bigger our Orca Army will be = breaching the deadly dams and saving our Orcas from extinction. .

  • Leopards have been persecuted since ancient times. In addition to protecting cattle and hunting trophies, it was also a reason to include leopards in the royal sacrificial ceremony Rampok macan. Together with the tigers, hooves were killed, which meant symbolic cleansing of the kingdom from chaos.

    At present, only between 100-250 adult species survives in nature (2008), while in 1992 it was 350 -700.

    Levharty threatens primarily the enormous increase in the human population on the island and the associated reduction in the environment for wild animals. The blame for the dwindling population is also borne by poachers. Although the beast is adaptable and can live in human proximity, it still needs somewhat preserved wilderness. In addition, people feel threatened by the presence of such a large cat because it is capable of killing medium and small domestic animals and, in the extreme, can be a threat to humans as well. Local people often spend these precious cats.

    All that the leopard can save is strict protection. At the same time, it is necessary to preserve the current range of national parks and try to link them to the bioco-corridors so that there is no crossbreeding and hence the degradation of gene quality. It is also necessary to carry out a thorough education among the locals, while at the same time compensating them for any damage caused by this beast. The Zoos in Berlin and in Prague are the only places outside Indonesia where these beasts are officially kept in captivity. Here, reared individuals can, under certain circumstances, contribute to improving the wildlife gene pool.

  • The government shutdown is causing irrevocable damage to our National Parks. Some remain open, but they are incredibly understaffed. Fragile ecosystems are being harmed. People are vandalizing parks, disturbing plants and wildlife, illegally hunting, and leaving behind piles and piles of trash. Unplowed roads make access difficult, and many parks have had to dip into emergency funds to try and remedy some of the damage being done. Popular Science reported that some parks will take decades to fully recover.
    .
    End the government shutdown now.

  • Whipped up some cute big cat designs if anybody is interested! Cute tropical Ocelot, a swimming White Tiger, and a glorious Golden Tabby Tiger (The beautiful strawberry blondes of the the tiger world). I know the white and golden tiger are mainly inbred from a very small gene pool which is quite problematic, poor things ☹️ but they are beautiful nonetheless. I am also endlessly saddened by the declining numbers of tigers in the wild... there’s estimated to be 2,500 Bengal tigers left... thanks poachers, and ridiculous traditional pseudo medicine. ☹️ Tigers are the best ❤️💔 Email me if you’d like to book one of these in! They need to be at least hand sized or slightly bigger. On a calf, thigh, upper arm, any of these placements would be perfection! .
