OWL SPOTTERS WANTED! The western burrowing owl population in San Diego county is at risk of going extinct. 😫 One of the best ways to understand burrowing owl ecology is by setting up cameras outside nest burrows to observe the birds’ behaviors. This is where you come in! 👀 We’re looking for volunteers to review these images and classify the birds and their behaviors. The goal is to see how many chicks emerge and fledge, and how predation impacts family groups. Owl you need to volunteer is a computer or mobile device!

Earth is not a singular being. It's not a plant you can water, an animal you can protect, or a species you can save from extinction. But Earth is the home to all those things and is what we all have in common. To protect our home, we have to work together to minimize our impact. We need to mitigate climate change, habitat loss, and wildlife trafficking by changing our actions like reducing plastic pollution and pesticide use while promoting policy change and personal responsibility. By saving our own home, we can save the species living here. "𝗜𝗻 𝗻𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲, 𝗻𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗲𝘅𝗶𝘀𝘁𝘀 𝗮𝗹𝗼𝗻𝗲" - 𝗥𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗹 𝗖𝗮𝗿𝘀𝗼𝗻 #ProtectOurSpecies #BeTheChange #EarthDay #EndExtinction

Trunks up in support of #SaveTheElephantDay ! Our herd of elephants started out as a group of 7 that were going to be culled in Swaziland, before they were rescued and brought to the Safari Park. But not all elephants are so lucky. African elephants are threatened from poaching and habitat loss. By working with our partners in Africa and studying our herd of elephants in collaboration with other AZA facilities, we're working to save this vulnerable species. #EndExtinction #pachydermpair #elephants 📷Dorothy Sutherland

As their scientific name coincidentally implies, 𝘍𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘴 𝘮𝘢𝘳𝘨𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘢 are salty, can be found on rocks, and pack a punch. Unfortunately, sand cats are threatened which is why we work with Sand Cat SSP to support these feisty felines. #FelineFriday #SaveSandCats #EndExtinction

Just a furrriendly reminder on #NationalPetDay that tigers (and other wild animas ) are not pets. Moka ( #RescueCub ) was rescued while being trafficked across the US/MX border, but many animals in the illegal pet trade are not so lucky. S/o to all the domestic cat & dog owners! #NotAPet #tbt #EndExtinction #WildlifeTrafficking

We'd like to make a huge announcement in collaboration with @wildlife_conservancy , @sandiegozoo And @zookeeperrick ! 👈 The new mini-Masai giraffe has been created to help keep giraffes alive in our challenging modern times. Being smaller makes it harder for poachers to find them and it is easier for the mini-Masai giraffe to slip though poacher snares without getting caught! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Seriously though… conservation is no joke. Giraffes are facing serious crisis and genetically modifying them to be mini is NOT the answer. (If only it were that easy ) The problem is human caused and has a human solution. A solution that doesn’t involve altering giraffes, but instead altering our behavior. We need to shift away from trying to stop/catch poachers and include supporting community conservation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Take a moment to follow @lewa_wildlife , @giraffe_conservation and @nrt_kenya learn more about giraffe conservation. 🦒🦒🦒 Also follow @zookeeperrick for more fun animal antics, like this gem 👏👏👏 . #AprilFools #GiraffeLove #EndExtinction
