  • Hawksbill turtle females always return to the beach where they hatched to lay their eggs. For this species to survive, we need to ensure that enough tropical beaches remain undisturbed.
There are so many amazing creatures in this world that #NationalGeographic #PhotoArk by @JoelSartore is seeking to capture on camera. This globally ambitious project aims to document every species in the world’s zoos and wildlife sanctuaries. By using the power of photography, Joel Sartore is inspiring people to help species at risk before it is too late.

  • Photo by Joel Sartore @joelsartore | Today is World Lizard Day! A tokay gecko strikes a pose during a photo shoot @sunsetzoomhk. Two variants of tokay geckos exist: red-spotted and black-spotted. The coloration of this species is important for camouflage, and they can actually lighten or darken their skin color to better blend in with their environment. To see other colorful species in the Photo Ark and learn how you can protect animals like this one in the wild, follow me @joelsartore. #WorldLizardDay #tokaygecko #cute #PhotoArk #savetogether

  • The only thing brighter than the feathers of a purple glossy starling are its radiant yellow eyes. While the sexes are quite similar in appearance, juveniles are much duller, with grey underparts and a brown iris.This species is common throughout a number of African countries including Senegal, Zaire (now DRC), Sudan, and Kenya.There are many species of starlings found in countries across the globe, each faced with different threats. In Europe, starling populations are experiencing steep declines, thought to be linked to a lack of feeding opportunities due to changing land use practices. To support these birds, consider installing a bird feeder and keeping it well stocked with feed throughout the year. This will provide a much needed resource to a variety of bird species, as well as bringing nature right to your doorstep.

  • ​Become a penguin protector by choosing to consume ocean-friendly seafood! Gentoo penguins like these two @theomahazoo are the fastest species of penguin in the world, swimming at speeds of up to 22 miles per hour! As carnivores, they mainly feed on crustaceans, fish, and squid, diving up to 450 times in a single day to find food. Unlike other species of penguins, the population of this bird is actually increasing in certain regions, though the species as a whole still faces a number of threats. The survival of gentoo penguins is at risk due to ocean pollution, increased human activity in breeding areas, and a large number of active and discarded fishing nets, which the birds could accidentally become entangled in. By downloading the @seafoodwatch app today and using it when you purchase seafood, you can ensure the seafood on your plate has been caught in a way that doesn’t negatively impact ocean health or the homes of many species like gentoo penguins. #penguin #gentoo #tuxedo #blackandwhite #carnivore #sustainableseafood #PhotoArk #savetogether

  • An endangered pileated gibbon with her eight-month-old infant @gibbonconservationcenter, a great facility that I had the honor of visiting not long ago. Their mission is to promote the conservation, study, and care of gibbons through public education and habitat preservation. However,​ they have lost their lease and need to find a new home for their gibbons soon, and can only do this with your support. To learn how you can help, please click the link in my bio. ​#gibbon #primate #PhotoArk #savetogether

  • Video by Joel Sartore @joelsartore. A queen Formosan subterranean termite @accb_cambodia. A single colony of Formosan subterranean termites may contain several million termites that forage down to 300 feet in soil. The queen of the colony has a life span around 15 years and is capable of producing up to 2,000 eggs per day.

  • Help create a brighter future for orangutans like Ayu and D.J. @tamansafariid by only buying from companies that support sustainable palm oil practices. While both Bornean and Sumatran orangutans are fully protected by law, the forest that they depend on is not. ​Logging to make room for palm oil plantations has made it almost impossible for orangutans to find tall old growth trees which they need to cross rivers that divide their habitat. The inability to move freely makes mating with other orangutans difficult, leading to a lack of genetic diversity which can be disastrous for a species whose numbers are already declining.​ Orangutans play an important role as gardeners of their forest homes - without them, many tree species would disappear entirely. But, humans still want palm oil, so in order for orangutan populations to thrive, humans need to find solutions for people and wildlife to live together. Check out the palm oil story in the highlights section to learn what actions you can take to protect orangutans in the wild. #Worldorangutanday ​#orangutan #babies #borneo #sumatra #cute #endangeredspecies #sustainablepalmoil #RSPO #PhotoArk #savetogether

  • ​Become a warrior for walruses like this Pacific walrus @hkoceanpark by taking steps to reduce your carbon footprint. Commercial hunting was once the greatest threat to this species, but today, the biggest threat facing walruses is the loss of stable sea ice due to climate change. Walruses feed on the ocean floor in the relatively shallow waters of the continental shelf, where the sea ice sustains a rich food web. Sea ice is also a resting place for this species in between meals, and females will often leave their young on this frozen platform while they forage. Without the sea ice, walruses must swim longer distances to find food and a place to rest, which means burning through hard-earned energy stores that the walrus needs to survive. Warming conditions also mean more water vessels are able to venture into remote ecosystems that were once inaccessible, increasing the likelihood of boat strikes, water contamination, and entanglement in marine debris. By opting to walk, bike, carpool, or use public transport you reduce your transportation emissions which helps to slow the progression of global warming, protecting the homes of walruses and many other species. #walrus #pacificwalrus #bigtusks #climatechange #globalwarming #gogreen #greentransportation #PhotoArk #savetogether

  • It's hard to believe that this wiry looking chick will soon transform into a stunning adult Guianan cock-of-the-rock like this male @dallas_world_aquarium. Found throughout southern Guyana, Colombia, Venezuela and northern Brazil, these birds are known for their bright orange feathers and half-moon crests on their heads. In the wild, males spend much of the day at a communal lek (area used for breeding displays). Leks can contain as many as 50 males attempting to attract mates, either participating in combat displays, or elaborate dancing displays. Females often choose nesting sites near the males’ leks, and will sometimes work in groups to build nests out of mud, clay, and plant matter. Once a pair has mated, eggs will be incubated for about a month before chicks like the one above hatch! #chick #cockoftherock #guianan #orange #bright #fuzzy #bird #PhotoArk #savetogether

  • ​As one of three new species of lemur described by scientists in 2016, the Ganzhorn’s mouse lemur increased the total number of known mouse lemur species to 24. Just two decades ago, only two species of these small, nocturnal primates had been identified. Mouse lemurs, along with more than 100 species of larger lemurs, can only be found on the island of Madagascar, and represent the world’s most endangered group of animals. You can protect these unique primates by ensuring that you are not buying products like guitars made of rosewood, which protects the forest homes of lemurs.
