Against all odds, threatened species continue to thrive within the borders of the Kayapo Indigenous territory. In Brazil’s Para state, industrial expansion borders the forested territory of the Kayapo people. The rich biodiversity of their nearly pristine rainforest is a testament to the courage, determination, and organization of the Kayapo people. Endangered species such as the Giant Otter and White-cheeked Spider Monkey serve as indicators of ecosystem health, their survival depends on healthy ecosystems free of deforestation and pollution. The Kayapo people are guardians of the Amazon Rainforest.

A new marine protected area has been established in Peru to safeguard species like Humboldt Penguins, Humpback Whales, Hammerhead Sharks, and Pacific Seahorses - all while supporting traditional local fishing practices.We congratulate the government and @sernanp of Peru for the declaration of the Mar Tropical de Grau National Reserve, which protects over 285,000 acres of biodiverse marine ecosystems where the cold Humboldt and warm tropical currents meet. My organization @rewild is proud to have supported this effort with partner @naturecultureinternational and others, including the local communities from the coast of Piura and Tumbes, to officially designate this vital place as a national reserve.This establishment allows Mar Tropical de Grau to not only protect marine life but also improve sustainable use of its natural resources through closely monitored traditional local activities and eco-friendly tourism development.Photo credit: Nature and Culture International

Africa’s red colobus monkeys are considered indicator species of tropical forest health, meaning they display early warning signs of ecological changes due to their sensitive reactions to them. Conservationists and scientists from almost 20 institutions have concluded that immediate conservation efforts to protect red colobus monkeys could have a cascading positive effect on the tropical forests of Africa.With declining populations of the 17 species of red colobus monkeys, this new report forewarns the fate of other threatened species across these tropical forests - a bleak future if business-as-usual continues.In the face of a growing biodiversity crisis, my organization @rewild has supported the development of the Red Colobus Conservation Network - a group dedicated to conserving red colobus monkeys and the landscapes they inhabit.

52% of water from the Colorado River is used for the agriculture industry, a new study finds. The paper, published in Communications, Earth & Environment, looks at where the water in the river—which is a critical resource for 40 million people—is going.Additionally, the report shared the staggering volume of the water that goes to irrigating two cattle feed crops - alfalfa and grass hay. Researchers shared that about a third of all of the river’s water is going to those two cattle feed crops. The Colorado River has about 19% less volume than in the year 2000 and is expected to drop another 30% by 2050 if temperatures continue to rise, scientists say.

Healthy coral reefs are kaleidoscopic underwater worlds that are vital to the survival of no less than 25% of all species in the ocean. But these colorful habitats are changing fast as the impacts of climate change, overfishing and pollution jeopardize their continued existence.As island communities around the world suffer some of the worst effects of biodiversity loss and climate change, @islandconservation, @rewild, and @scripps_ocean have launched the 2030 Island-Ocean Connection Challenge. By focusing on the links between land and sea ecosystems, this work can maximize the co-benefits of island conservation for their surrounding marine ecosystems, including coral reefs, seagrass meadows, mangroves, and others. #EarthDay2024Cover image credit: @robindmoore

Mangroves are the only trees in the world that can grow in saltwater, and they play a vital role in the fight against climate change. Mangroves can survive these harsh growing conditions by filtering about 90% of the salt found in seawater as it enters their roots, and some can even excrete it out through glands in their leaves. Healthy mangroves act as natural buffers, shielding coastal communities during extreme weather events. To sustain biodiversity, mitigate the climate crisis, and protect coastal communities from storms, @rewild partner @bahamasnationaltrust is leading efforts to restore mangroves that were ravaged by hurricanes. With support from students, fishers, and community members, the mangroves are beginning to recover. #EarthDay2024Cover image credit: @robindmoore

Repost from @postclimate •Citizen contributions provided new information on 10 of 17 seahorse species and helped update knowledge about the geographic distribution of nine species, researchers found. Some of the observations even helped scientists better understand when and how seahorses breed.The iSeahorse project asks the public to record seahorse sightings and observe the animals’ behavior.“Seahorses are very much the sort of fascinating species that benefit from community science, as they are cryptic enough to make even formal research challenging,” said Heather Koldewey, the project’s co-founder.Read more by visiting the link in our bio.

Local communities celebrate the creation of a new protected area in the Colombian Chocó. Although the project aimed originally to protect over 12,000 acres, the outpour of local support increased the Central Rainforest Las Siete Sabias to over 75,000 acres of protected rainforest ecosystem.This newly designated natural and cultural jewel is located in the collective territory of Afro-Colombian communities, providing vital resources like clean drinking water to over 100,000 individuals.Las Siete Sabias boasts some of the highest biodiversity on the planet and protects 90 species of plants and over 470 species of animals. The forest canopy can tower over 100 feet, creating multiple layers of habitat for these species to thrive.The declaration of the DRMI Central Rain Forest Las Siete Sabias- Esperanza de Vida was made possible thanks to the coordination of @codechococar as the environmental authority, the implementation of CORPARIEN and COCOMACIA, the technical support of the @instituto_humboldt and the financial support of @naturecultureinternational, @andesamazonfund, and Art into Acres in partnership with @rewild.Since 2019, the painting “Japanese Garden 3” by Los Angeles-based artist Jonas Wood supported the creation of this new protected area, and three other sites. Thank you to artists @jonasbrwood and @kusakashio for their key support in biodiversity conservation. #ArtIntoAcresPhoto/video credit: @naturalezaculturainternacional

One out of seven deep-sea sharks and rays are threatened with extinction, according to a new study supported by @sharkconservationfund.Due to their long lifespans and slow reproduction rates, deep-sea sharks and rays are increasingly threatened by the marine hunting industry. Targeted for their meat and liver oil, deep-sea sharks require immediate conservation attention.My organization, @rewild, is proud to work directly with the Shark Conservation Fund in their call to increase deep-sea fishing regulations that are essential to safeguarding these threatened species. Together, we are all committed to ensuring sharks can continue to play their pivotal role in the health of our ocean ecosystems.

The native forests of Tasmania are one of the only places on Earth where trees naturally tower over 280 feet (90 meters) tall. These old growth giants have been logged for decades, resulting in many forest species, including the Critically Endangered Swift Parrot, being pushed to the brink of extinction.My organization, @rewild, @bobbrownfoundation and their partners continue to highlight the need for the Australian government to uphold their zero-extinction commitment, in part by ending native forest logging across mainland Australia and Tasmania.Visit the link in bio to help protect our planet’s last giant forests. Sign the petition to encourage the Australian government to end native forest logging across mainland Australia and Tasmania.Credits: @thegiantsfilm (cover image, Matt Newton)#EndNativeForestLogging #TheForestPledge #SaveSwifties
