Help save the Maugean Skate from Extinction - link in bio.Threatened by industrial non-native Atlantic Salmon farming, this species is being pushed to the brink as salmon pens invade their only remaining habitat on Earth. Maugean Skates only live in one shallow estuary off the Tasmanian coast after thriving on Earth for over a million years. Pollution from salmon farming has stripped oxygen from these waters, making it difficult for these rays to survive.@bobbrownfoundation is leading a campaign to save one of the most threatened rays in the world - helping to prevent them from becoming the first extinction driven by industrial farmed fish practices.Help save the #MaugeanSkate - link in bio - your action ensures this species can thrive like it has for millions of years.Media credit: Neville Barrett and Bob Brown Foundation#WorldOceanDay #oceanclimateaction

Burning wood pellets for energy is devastating forests, communities, and wildlife in the Southern United States. Take action against this harmful industry - link in bio.Often falsely labeled as a ‘climate solution’, growing trees and then burning them for electricity releases more climate-warming pollution than even coal and relies on clearcuts of native forest ecosystems. Every year, biomass facilities in the American South turn 22 million tons of trees into wood pellets, most of which are shipped overseas, including to the European Union. Wood pellet plants emit toxic dust that contains volatile organic compounds, acrolein, and methanol. These pollutants can cause asthma and respiratory illnesses in nearby communities, which are usually made up of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous Peoples. Most of these trees are cut down in the North American Coastal Plain where over a dozen Key Biodiversity Areas are found - which are critical to the persistence of biodiversity and vital to the health of all life on Earth, including our own. This destruction threatens habitats such as bottomland hardwood and native pine forests, home to many threatened species such as the Critically Endangered Red Wolf, Frosted Flatwoods Salamander, and Red-cockaded Woodpecker.

New York could become the first U.S. state to prevent its public procurement from driving tropical deforestation, defending the planet from further climate catastrophe and ecological breakdown.The NY TREES Act would require companies contracting with state and local governments to prove their supply chains are not contributing to tropical deforestation or associated abuses of human rights. This policy follows in the footsteps of the European Union, which enacted its own economy-wide deforestation regulations in June 2023.Visit the link in bio to support @govkathyhochul in signing the NY TREES Act into law to deliver on this vital climate action.Photo credit: @robindmoore

After being lost to science for 36 years the Big Puma Fungus has been rediscovered in Chile as a part of @rewild Search for Lost Species.With the help of local mushroom enthusiasts and the @fungifoundation - Re:wild has announced the first-ever fungi species to be rediscovered in the #SearchforLostSpeciesThe Big Puma Fungus is a mysterious species of fungi that lives underground in Chile’s Nahuelbuta Mountains. Expedition team members even think that the mushrooms of the fungus might only be visible above the soil for just a few days each year.Visit the link in bio to view the short film by Chilean filmmaker Catalina Infante that captured the wonder of the expedition, as well as the moment when the team found the Big Puma Fungus with the local community.Photo credit: @catainsk, Fungi Foundation

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. Learn more about the conservation success of the @kayapoproject and their work to help protect Kayapo territory and preserve corridors for threatened species - link in bio! #EndangeredSpeciesDay #EndangeredSpeciesVideo credit: @coletivobetureCover images: @martinschoeller

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
