The lungs of the Earth are in flames. 🔥 The Brazilian Amazon—home to 1 million Indigenous people and 3 million species—has been burning for more than two weeks straight. There have been 74,000 fires in the Brazilian Amazon since the beginning of this year—a staggering 84% increase over the same period last year (National Institute for Space Research, Brazil). Scientists and conservationists attribute the accelerating deforestation to President Jair Bolsonaro, who issued an open invitation to loggers and farmers to clear the land after taking office in January.⁣
⁣
The largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check. ⁣
⁣
The Amazon needs more than our prayers. So what can YOU do?⁣
⁣
✔ As an emergency response, donate to frontline Amazon groups working to defend the forest. ⁣
✔ Consider becoming a regular supporter of the Rainforest Alliance’s community forestry initiatives across the world’s most vulnerable tropical forests, including the Amazon; this approach is by far the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires, but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between the communities and the public and private sectors. Link in bio.⁣
✔ Stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers. ⁣
✔ Be a conscious consumer, taking care to support companies committed to responsible supply chains.⁣ Eliminate or reduce consumption of beef; cattle ranching is one of the primary drivers of Amazon deforestation.
✔ When election time comes, VOTE for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinking policy.⁣

The KING in all his GLORY! 
Lions are found in the Family 'Felidae' in the Animal Kingdom, recognized by their glorious manes and impeccable nature. Lions live predominantly in areas throughout Africa, and are an absolute wonder to see up Close!

Definitely a bucket list moment to see these animals up Close in their natural habitat!

We saw you guys really enjoyed the precious bird close-up video, so we figured we’d follow it up with a rare Choco endemic Tooth-bill Hummingbird, famous for its teeth like structure along its bill! 
Video by @gourmetbiologist (NOTE: The bird is handed carefully by a biologist expert and released immediately after it, don't emulate this by yourself)

A very sobering experience swimming next to this incredible whale shark. You can notice the deep propeller marks down the back and tail from a recent boat strike.

The dog on the left is blind. The dog on the right is its guide. On average, guide dogs for other less fortunate dogs are paired together for a span of 6 years, becoming pretty good buddies in the process.
