Honestly, there are days when I hope the virus wins. Between selfishness, greed & exploiting the earth and all its creatures, we don't deserve this planet.
There is now only one white giraffe left on Earth.

Did you know there are animals all over the world who are already pros at social distancing? Check them out! | Photo: Amanda Cotton | Read more here: https://bit.ly/3apZwfx
#Deforestation 🌲🪓 is happening at a rapid pace.
Every day we lose such a diversity of plants and animals as Amazon rainforest is being destroyed, there are many species we are rapidly losing. 🦥🦜🦡
The #jocotoco antpitta bird, South American #tapirs, #giantotters, white-cheeked #spidermonkeys, and #goldenpoisondartfrogs are under threat due to habitat destruction/deforestation and water contamination, caused by the expansion of farmland and roads.

Photos by @janzwilling "The world is in crisis. I do not refer only to the current Corona Pandemic, but to a more profound and severe crisis: the alienation of mankind to nature. Over decades, centuries and millennia we have isolated ourselves within the natural world, causing a massive loss of biodiversity and a change in the climate. It is easy to lose faith that these wounds can be healed - but there is hope: in the action of a few people who devote all their energy to conservation. I consider myself extremely lucky that I witnessed one of these rare moments when the flame flared bright and intensively: In August 2019 a team of scientists and conservationists collected immature egg cells from the two very last northern white rhinos in the world, artificially inseminated them with frozen sperm from deceased bulls and created new embryos. This milestone procedure gave new hope for a species on the brink of extinction. At the same time, the few hours of sedation for the rhinos have been some of the tensest and stressful for everyone involved. The weight of a whole flagship species lasted on the shoulders of veterinarians, scientists, guards, keepers and all other souls involved. The relief when everything went according to plan and the procedure was called a success matched the tension! I hope that, when I am old, we will be remembered for these moments and not for being the generation that destroyed the world we share with animals and plants." [email protected]
I adopted a giraffe! 🦒
4 weeks ago, life looked different. I was traveling in California ☀️ for @altsummit, and was invited to a dinner at The Living Desert hosted by @ifyoucare_usa
I did my research before accepting the invitation, as not all zoos are places I would support. (Anyone else just start watching a certain tiger documentary?? 🐅)
@thelivingdesert core focus is conservation: “Preserving, protecting and restoring natural environments, ecosystems, and wildlife is at the heart of everything that we do.” It’s one of only 9 accredited zoos to be accepted in the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA)
There’s a reason it’s in the top 1% of all U.S. attractions via @tripadvisor !
If you missed my stories from that night, we were escorted after hours on golf carts through the campus, seeing some night time activities of the animals, and brought to feed the giraffes their favorite snack (lettuce and carrots) before being served our own meal. (Somehow I have no pictures of our actual food but it was also delicious.)
Everybody has been affected by these times in different ways. I myself only have a suitcase of my belongings with me as everything else was already shipped across country in prep for my move. But we are all looking for a little light where we can, yes?
So yes, really, I adopted a giraffe. Symbolically. (Technically under my moms name as she loves giraffes.)
This post in itself is not sponsored but in reflecting on one of the last “group gatherings” I was able to attend, I realized I could think outside the box on ways to support businesses I love that are being impacted. If you’re looking for a unique gift for a friend to cheer them up or need a smile for yourself today, “adopting” an animal starts at just $35 (other donations can be as little at $5)
Swipe to see all pictures/video.
(P.S. That @ifyoucare_usa swag really coming in handy during this time.)
Tell me your favorite animal in the comments! (emojis are welcome) 🦒

The next feature our team has made progress on is the connect feature. This allows individuals to connect with one another and follow organizations. Key is set up where individuals have to request to connect with one another instead of following (this is to create a community based on collaboration and professionalism instead of followers). ⠀
Creating the connect feature is the first major step in establishing a collaborative community. Our goal in the future is to allow peer to organization and peer to peer messaging and also allow individuals to see within their own Live Feed what their friends are up to in the app. With the new connect feature an individual can click on the connections within their own profile and see what organizations and individuals they are connected with and click their logos to learn more.
Happy April First. Today we are going to compare Planet Zoo from @frontierdev. their opponent is not a game, but @sandiegozoo and @sdzsafaripark as well as tons of their animals. It brings my two loves together, zoos and gaming. #planetzoo#endextinction https://youtu.be/Qu_VPrUr4xQ
After a century of decline, overall wild tiger numbers are on the rise. Around 3,900 tigers remain in the wild, but much more work is needed to protect this species if we are to secure its future in the wild. In some areas, including much of Southeast Asia, tigers are still in crisis and still declining in number.
This big cat is both admired and feared by people around the world. If forests are emptied of every last tiger, all that will remain are distant legends and zoo sightings.
Words of @wwf
They need our help , take care of the world you live , with education the people can learn more about this animals and why we need to take care of them . #sandiegozoo
Después de un siglo de declive, el número total de tigres salvajes está en aumento. Alrededor de 3.900 tigres permanecen en la naturaleza, pero se necesita mucho más trabajo para proteger esta especie si queremos asegurar su futuro en la naturaleza. En algunas áreas, incluida gran parte del sudeste asiático, los tigres siguen en crisis y su número sigue disminuyendo.
Este gran gato es admirado y temido por personas de todo el mundo. Si los bosques se vacían hasta el último tigre, todo lo que quedará serán leyendas distantes y avistamientos de zoológicos.
Ellos necesitan nuestra ayuda , cuida el planeta en el que vives , con la educación necesaria a las personas , podemos aprender porque necesitamos proteger estos bellos animales.

Missing @sdzsafaripark today! I’ve heard stories from other GAs about the baby mule deer that start showing up in spring time, been looking forward to that for a while...that plus butterfly jungle and lunches in the world gardens...hopefully back soon!! #EndExtinction pic.twitter.com/mpgz19zSfg – at San Diego Zoo Safari Park
Adoptive Elephant Update:
My little Enkesha continues to thrive with the other orphans at @sheldricktrust Hard to imagine that just three years ago she was in critical condition because of a poachers snare.
Wildlife snaring for bush meat poaching is sadly a common practice throughout much of Africa, including Kenya. Many anti-poaching units work to find wire snares and remove them before it's too late. In Enkesha's case her trunk became entangled in a snare trap. When she struggled, the snare tigentend, severing part of her trunk. Wildlife crews found her, and knew she needed medical attention.
Since her rescue in February of 2017, Enkesha has made remarkable progress. She has the ability to use most of her trunk's original movement; exceeding everyone's expectations. Stay up to date on everything Enkesha by adopting her at @sheldricktrust
The #coronavirus was caused by the mismanagement of our natural resources. We must protect species to #EndExtinction. All species are in this together. #wildlife#news @CenterForBioDivhttps://youtu.be/y27T2wZr_RU

Voay robustus was a species of large crocodile that lived in Madagascar. It first appeared in the Pleistocene period around 126,000 years ago. It a stature, size, and presumed behavior similar to that of the Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus). In fact, they were so similar to the point where, if the Nile Crocodile migrated to Madagascar while it still existed, then there would have been great competition between the two species. This has led scientists to conclude that the Nile Crocodile had migrated to Madagascar after the extinction of Voay robustus. The size of this species was very large. It attained lengths of 5 m (16.4 ft) and weighed up to 170 kg (375 lbs). Because of these size dimensions, it has been suggested that Voay robustus is the largest Madagascan predator in recent times. This species also had an interesting taxonomic history. When the species was first described in 1872, it was assigned to the genus Crocodylus, which was the genus most crocodiles belong to. However, it was later discovered to be closer to the genus Osteolamus than Crocodylus, the genus that the Dwarf Crocodile (Osteolamus tetraspis) belongs to. Since it wasn't close enough to the Dwarf Crocodile to be in the same genus, it was assigned a new genus, Voay. This species has existed for 124,000 years, and went extinct around 2,000 years ago. Its extinction is likely attributed to the extinction event that wiped out much of Madagascan megafauna. This extinction event was likely linked to the arrival of humans to the island around 2,000 years ago.

The Réunion Ibis (Threskiornis solitarius) was an extinct species of ibis that lived on the island of Réunion. Subfossil remains of this species was discovered in 1974, but wasn't described until 1987. Traveller's accounts had described accounts of a white bird on Réunion that was commonly referred to as the Réunion Solitaire. These accounts were first thought to be of dodos. 17th-century paintings of white dodos seemed to prove this hypothesis. However, this proposal has been problematic as no evidence of dodos have been found on the island and the paintings have been questioned whether or not they had anything to do with the island. The identity of the bird was finally revealed when subfossil remains of an ibis was found on Réunion, which, together with historical accounts, was able to reveal that the bird was a white ibis. Most reconstructions of this species are based on its close relatives: the Malagasy Sacred Ibis (Threskiornis bernieri), the African Sacred Ibis (Threskiornis aethiopicus), and the Straw-necked Ibis (Threskiornis spinicollis). This species went extinct in the early 1700s. When humans arrived to the islands, the ibis was confined to to the tops of mountains. Being in such small ranges makes a species more likely to go extinct. Invasive species, like cats and rats took a huge toll on their numbers. Overhunting was another factor, as this bird was commonly used as a food source. Many historical records described how tame the bird was, how easy it was to hunt, the large quantity of birds consumed, the culinary quality of the species, and how they slaughtered it. The last account of a Réunion Ibis was written in 1708, which indicates the extinction of the species happened around the same time.
Spring has sprung! My Bird of Paradise reminds me of the @sandiegozoo which I'm missing as a volunteer. More modules to work on for hours...
