The African island of Madagascar is home to amazing biodiversity found nowhere on the earth. But due to rapid habitat loss and hunting, the island paradise is in grave danger. Madagascar's beloved ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta) have all but disappeared from many of the nation’s forests. According to worrying new studies, the species’ population has fallen to between 2,000 and 2,400 animals—a shocking 95 percent decrease since the year 2000. To put that number in context, there are now fewer ring-tailed lemurs living in the wild than there are living in zoos around the world. The forests left behind are now very sad, quiet and dusty.

Best 🐦 of the day was this adorable piping plover. These birds are rare and critically endangered. I would encourage anyone visiting Ashbridges Bay today to report any unleashed dogs in the area. Dial 311 option 9 #endangeredspecies #plover #birds #tobirdparty #torontobirds

Safari with @cheetahplains today was a next level experience - stumbled into 32 elephants chilling around a watering hole for breakfast followed by a lion who'd just wrestled a kudu off a cheetah and comped himself into an afternoon food coma🍴 hyped for more tomorrow!

The prairie lands, meadows, and grasslands once native to the piedmont of north carolina have next to disappeared since european colonization of these lands. Some debate the prairie lands of the piedmont used to be maintained by the native peoples via forest fires & by the buffalo & the elk populations who once lived here. These habitats have become so rare that many of the plant communities that once thrived there have almost entirely disappeared from our ecosystem. This echinacea (Echinacea laevigata) is one of them. This smooth purple coneflower is now on the endangered species list. #nativespecies #endangeredspecies #echinacea #coneflower #echinacealaevigata #praries #prarieplants #nofilter #flowersneednofilter

Another progress shot of collab-mural day, painting the Oso Jukumari (Spectacled Bear.) An animal dangerously close to extinction, and is native to the andean regions of Bolivia. Promoting awareness of these species hopefully provokes conversations about the health of our planets' biodiversity. Let's be proactive in keeping these conversations going! 🐻 #osojukumari #endangered #endangeredspecies #bolivia
