Oh I just cant wait to be kiiiiiiing 🦁 - Chinese version - - 😂😍 - - Did you know that panda is a 19 million years old species ? However, it is nowadays a vulnerable species, with less than 2000 pandas left in the world. They live only in Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu provinces (China), needing a very particular climate and diet. In ancient times, pandas were used in the chinese army to attack the enemy. Difficult to imagine, right ? Well, this tactic must have been quite inefficient, as pandas quickly became the effigy for peace (like our white flag in Europe). They are beloved by Chinese people who treasure them and spend fortunes to prevent their extinction. Founded in 1987 with only 6 residents, Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding is now the worlds biggest panda base with more than 230 pandas and is famously known for its educational purposes and breeding : last year they welcomed 23 newborns, a record ! #china #panda #chengdupandabase #vulnerablespecies #loveanimals #lionking #earthpix #wwf #earthfocus #travel

“Out on a Limb” was one of the most challenging sculptures Dale has ever carved. Trying to get the leopard draped around the limb while creating the texture of bark pushed him to the limit.

The kotsovato is a cichlid from western Madagascar. Just like many of Madagascar’s endemic terrestrials, this aquatic species is threatened by human activity. Habitat destruction (particularly deforestation at the edges of lakes & rivers where these fish are found), plus introduced species, are threats. In particular, predatory Asian snakeheads & non-native cichlids endanger the kotsovato’s long-term survival. The IUCN considers these delicately-patterned Malagasy fish to be Vulnerable. #cichlids #cichlid #cichlidsofinstagram #threatenedspecies #vulnerablespecies #animalfacts #freshwaterfish #aquaticlife #fishofinstagram #anthropocene #sixthmassextinction #tropicalfish

The Southern Ground Hornbill; It has one of the longest life spans of any bird (over 30 years in the wild)- and one of the longest periods to reach maturity before it can breed (over 7 years), after which only one chick tends to survive due to siblicide in the nest ... making them a species vulnerable to extinction and quite rare to see sadly ________________________________________ #groundhornbill #vulnerablespecies #birdsofeastafrica #hornbill

Three-wattles bellbird (Procnias tricarunculatus), male and female. Fascinating looking birds, vulnerable species. They are rather large, and the female is cute-looking, while the make is strange, but undeniably majestic. Exquisite, as my brother said. 🖤Watercolour with ink for lines and watercolour pencil for details on the finished piece. #bird #birdpainting #birdwatercolor #watercolour #watercolor #painting #threewattledbellbird #vulnerablespecies #tropicalbirds #watercolorpostcard #sennelier #strathmore400

Happy World Snake Day! Did you know that there are 294 species of snakes in the world? 90 of these species are found in Sri Lanka, and what’s even cooler is that 50 of these are endemic to the island! So rock on snakes. Rock on! Ps. This fishing cat is not trying to eat the snake.

Gurskys spectral tarsier (Tarsius spectrumgurskyae) is a small,carnivorous primate. I waited at dusk to see this family group emerge from the roots of a huge strangler frig where they had been sleeping all day.

Horns? Antlers? What do giraffes have on their head? • The answer is ossicones! Unlike horns and antlers that have a base structure made of bone, ossicones are originally made of cartilage and ossify (turn to bone) over time. Giraffe calves like Amelia have cartilaginous ossicones when they are born so they can safely get through the birth canal but as she grows up they’ll straighten out and attach to her parietal bones. Females tend to have thinner ones with tufts of hair on the top whereas males develop knobs and use theirs for fighting. • #photography #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #giraffe #animal #animals #animalsofinstagram #zoophotography #zoolife #zookeeper #zoo #zoology #vulnerablespecies #endangeredspecies #conservation #riverbankszoo @riverbankszoo #columbiasc #southcarolina #pennypetuniaphotography

How cute is this panda cub? ❤️ . Its still learning how to find its feet and fend for itself. . At Chengdus Research Base for Giant Panda Breeding, I learned that pandas are fascinating for a host of other reasons, besides their super cuteness.

When they ask me why I like so much the mantas, every time I encounter them I feel like a children, so excited as it is the first time: I found them so naturally beautiful, how they fly, how they move and how they look at you. Their shape is symmetrically perfect, with two cephalic fins on either side of their mouths, and with a short tail at the back. Their behavior under water, how they mate, how they swim, how they gravitate on the cleaning stations been cleaned by small fish, they are gracious and elegant. And for me, they always look like having a big smile. . . I wonder if they have memory and they recall you by the smell or the colour of your wetsuit, but everytime I visit them in their home (specially in Manta Point, Nusa Penida) I have the feeling they have a very welcome attitude and they like to show their beauty and grace to everybody observing. . . .

Они ещё существуют... дух захватывает от совершенства природы и вложенных ею в каждое живое существо гармонии и потенциала для выживания. @natgeo ・・・ Photo by @joelsartore | Did you know that giant anteaters have a sense of smell that is 40 times better than a humans? This heightened sense allows them to sniff out ants or termites up to several miles away. This is a helpful feature for this ant-hungry species, who consume up to 30,000 of the insects a day! Amazingly, their tongue is usually two feet long, the largest in relation to body size of any mammal, with small backward-pointing spines covered in sticky saliva that aid in feeding. Sadly, giant anteaters like this one at the @sunsetzoomhk have experienced a population decline of around 30% over the past decade and are listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List. Habitat loss, roadkills, hunting, and wildfires have been substantially impacting the populations over the past 10 years. In some areas, giant anteaters are hunted for food; this is especially true in the Caatinga area of Brazil. Their skin is often used to manufacture harnesses and other leather products, as well as for medicinal use. In Central America and southern parts of its range, there have been many records of local population extinctions. #PhotoArk #vulnerablespecies #giantanteater For more like this follow @joelsartore!

In the last five years, the giraffe population across Africa has seen a 40% drop, from over 155,000 individuals to less than 97,000, securing them a spot on the ICUNs vulnerable species list. These towering herbivores are threatened by habitat loss and poaching, but can still be seen grazing the treetops in the wonderful wildlife reserves and private concessions across the continent. If you want to experience the magic of a giraffe encounter, let us arrange an enchanting trip for you to see them up close. #WeAreJourneysmiths . . . . #giraffe #giraffes #conservation #togetherpossible #worldwildlifefund #worldwildlife #endangeredspecies #vulnerablespecies #stoppoaching #wildlife #igscwildlife #onlyafrica #africageographic #africageophoto #passionpassport #wanderlust #safari #safarigram #luxurytravel #luxuryholiday #wildencounters #depthofearth #wildgeography #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animallovers

Today @anyaratnayaka and @madurangaranaweera took wildlife conservationist and writer @bindraprerna on an epic adventure. Starting off on the red dirt road, we climbed a tower and got caught to a monsoon storm, followed by a journey by boat which led us to the house of one of our favourite wetland neighbours Aunty Hemanthi, Uncle Manilal and Kalu. Prerna got the low down on what it’s like living next to a beautiful wetland before we paddled back to shore, looked at camera trap footage and headed back into the busy city. Who needs to travel hours out of Colombo for an adventure when we have an amazing one right in our backyard! Thank you @thefishingcatproject for connecting us!

Regrann from @dp4k.m_reincarnated - SNOW LEOPARDS The snow leopard is a large cat native to the mountain ranges of Central and South Asia. It is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species As of 2016, the global population was estimated at 4,500 to 8,745 mature individuals. Their numbers have almost halved in the last 30-40 years due to habitat loss and poaching. This mother and cub were observed in the rocky highlands of Pakistan.

This beautiful creature is a Clouded Leopard. It has the largest canine to skull size ratio of any wild cat. This means if it was the size of a lion its teeth would be like a saber toothed cat. This one is found @heritage_park_zoo with another one but theyre elusive during the day. #cloudedleopard #leopard #cloudedleopards #heritageparkzoo #zoos #zooday #animals #wildlife #wildlifephotography #kitty #cats #BigCats #wildlifewarrior #conservation #wildlifeconservation #animalsanctuary #canine #wildlifeonearth #endextinction #vulnerablespecies #feline #spots #zoophotography #shots_of_animals #morningatthezoo #morethanazoo

Marine species are in tune with their marine habitats and their surrounding environment, alterations in temperature, nutrient availability and pH may make them vulnerable. The changes in environmental conditions may make their habitat inhabitable. #GoBlue2018

🇬🇧I will never understand how someone who climbs 1870 meters on a mountain with a full bottle of beer in his backpack is not able to take it when he drinks it ... I have taken the trash in my backpack, besides being in a nice place, were a few meters away from a species of flora classified as vulnerable in the Region of Murcia. 🇪🇸Nunca entenderé como alguien que sube 1870 metros en una montaña con una botella de cerveza llena en la mochila no es capaz de llevarsela cuando se la bebe... Me he llevado la basura en mi mochila, ademas de estar en un sitio bonito, se encontraban a pocos metros de una especie de flora catalogada como vulnerable en la Región de Murcia. #trash #zerowaste #basura #RegiondeMurcia #mountain #vulnerablespecies

Wild Dogs eye / Painted Wolves These animals are in a huge need for their population to boost back. Provission of education in conservation of these wild animal should be done all over and community must see direct benefit in return for protecting them. Wildlife and humans coflict is a major threat towards the vulnerability of this species. Wildlife lovers only wont make a huge change but as whole in the community could. Lets make a move and will make impact. #dogs #wildlife #conservation #wilddogs #canids #wildlifeprotection #wildlifesociety #natinalgeo #photography #tourism #wildareas #indangered #vulnerablespecies #nature #animals #africa

Calgary Zoo. Repping my #hardcorecasuals stream team fam. Pandaroni! While holding a panda stuffy, standing in front of a real (I think) panda! He looked like a stuffed toy. He just ate all the bamboos so he was sleeping and he is like a cat and sleeps 18 hours a day! #pandas #panda #vulnerablespecies #wwf #zoo #yyc #travel #holiday #animals #love #fluffy

I know its not quite in focus, but god forgive me I tried to take a picture of a nocturnal animal in a rather dark enclosure. The lights there are only on when the zoo is closed and they go off when the zoo opens its gates for visitors, effectively telling these little fur balls that its night and time to get active when visitors are around to watch them. I took this photo early in the morning, when there was still a little more light and one of the loris had thankfully decided to get up early. || Pygmy slow loris (Zwergplumplori) #slowloris #vulnerablespecies #ZooLeipzig #leipzigzoo #leipzigerzoo #dernaturaufderspur #animals #animalphoto #animalphotos #animalphotography #zoo #zooanimals #zoolife #zootrip #zoophoto #zoophotos #zoophotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifephoto #wildlifephotos #wildlifepic #wildlifepics #wildlifeshots #wildlifeanimals #adorableanimals #cuteandcuddly #myabsolutefavorite #lsmittagnature

This is why I have the coolest job in the world 😏 Follow @urbanfishingcat for more fishing cat updates! #Repost @urbanfishingcat ・・・ This beautiful girl was just seen on little walk in Battaramulla, Sri Lanka. She was probably sleeping in that house that’s being constructed at the back, and was disturbed from her nap. This video goes to show how you could safely watch urban wildlife at any time of the day! Thank you Rajanya Udurawana for the filming this fishing cat, and @chillie_danu for sending it to us! @global_wildlife_conservation #urbanfishingcat #srilanka #urbanwetlands #urbanwildlife #conservation #awareness #smallwildcats #wildcats #cats #catlovers #animals #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #biodiversity #wildlifephotography #gwc #conservation #conservationoptimism #smallcatconservation #wetlands #CITES #IUCN #IUCNRedList #endangeredspecies #vulnerablespecies #colombo #wildcolombo
