It’s #worldgiraffeday! An important day to raise awareness about the challenges facing this extraordinary species. In the last 30 years, the population has plummeted 40%. This is due to the combination of habitat loss, poaching and the wildlife trade. It’s impossible to imagine a world without this elegant and majestic animals. However if things do not change, we are sadly moving in that direction.

It’s #worldenvironmentday, friends. If we continue at the rate we are going, there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans by 2050. If we continue at the rate we are going, 1,000,000 species will be extinct in the next hundred years. We are the cause, but we can also be the most beautiful solution. What actions are you going to take? Leave your comments and inspire others to LOVE OUR MOTHER 🌎 . . . #loveyourmother #wild #wildfoundation #action #environment #natureneedshalf

#Repost from @wildfoundation’s own @mel_shmel ・・・ Is that a dog in a tree?! Nope. It's a little yearling bear, still trying to grow into his ears. Right around now, black bear yearlings are dispersing from their moms and learning how to survive on their own. This skinny minny followed his nose to the alley behind a sorority house, where he feasted on trash, and was chased up a tree that he was forced to remain in for the day. He was *not* happy with us. Here's hoping this unpleasant experience teaches him to avoid town in the future 🐻 . . . #boulder #colorado #blackbear #bear #urbanwildlife #yearling #secureyourtrash #urbanbear #bearsitting

#Repost @carltonward ・・・ A herd of endangered desert elephants makes its way through a scrubby acacia forest around the edge of Lake Banzena in the Sahel of Mali. Early in my career I spent two months tracking and photographing these elephants with @savetheelephants and @wildfoundation. The project taught me about the importance of protecting large connected landscapes for wildlife and people — and inspired much of my thinking at the core of the Florida Wildlife Corridor campaign @FL_WildCorridor. The Mali elephants also deepened my reverence for nature. The elephants were not accustomed to seeing vehicles. This required us to approach only on foot. Looking up from the desert floor at this towering herd made me feel very alive and very small. It’s hard to believe an animal as powerful as an elephant is also so vulnerable and endangered. #mali #elephants #sahel

Today is Earth Day. Did you know that over 60% of species have disappeared over the last 50 years? While it’s wonderful that we recognize and honor the earth today, it’s an absolute necessity that we recognize, honor and do everything that we can to save our beautiful planet and all of her inhabitants every day. . What adjustments can you make? Can you eliminate single use plastics from your life? Can you always remember to turn the light off when you leave a room? Can you ride a bike instead of drive a car? Can you carpool? Can you buy local produce? Can you use natural products? Can you always remember your reusable shopping bags? . On this day, let’s make a commitment to live with less waste. We have two homes. Our body and our planet. Let’s take care of both of them. To see what we’re doing to protect this beautiful planet, visit wild.org.

One black bear family, a mom and her two cubs, have been frequenting a resident’s backyard in western Boulder. These omnivores are in the middle of a period of intense eating where they need to eat roughly 20,000 calories *per day* so they can gain the fat reserves they need to survive an entire winter hibernating without any food or water. The resident has a pear tree that may be attracting the bears, and because of the close proximity to an elementary school, wildlife officials are trying to encourage the bears to move back to the foothills on their own. This week the WILD team volunteered with the Community Fruit Rescue to harvest the homeowner’s pear tree as one step to discourage these bears from sticking around the area. We are hopeful that with residents securing their trash and harvesting fruit trees, the bears will begin to avoid town and live out their lives as healthy, wild bears. 🐻 Photos: @mel_shmel More info at: www.fruitrescue.org and www.bearsandpeople.com . . . #wild #wildfoundation #bear #bears #blackbears #communityfruitrescue #boulder #colorado

Believe it or not, the growing consensus among world leaders is that #China is becoming a powerful leader for the environment. For the last 3 years, WILD has worked in China to build out a strong #wilderness policy in China’s new eco-civilization framework. And it’s working! Last week, WILD brought a wilderness delegation, the first of its kind, to China’s largest environmental conference, endorsed by President Xi. This delegation reached new audiences and influencers with a powerful and timely message about the importance of protecting Earth’s wild places. Stay tuned for new developments as WILD, working at the request of our Chinese partners, continues to strengthen support for wildlife and wild places in China and abroad. #Conservation #WILD11 🐼🐵🐼🐵
