Here shows endangered asian elephants (elephas maximus), a highly intelligent species dependent on their cohesive groups.
.
unfortunately they are at risk due to #skinning, an emergent trade where their skin is carved, and ground down into medicinal powder and blood-red beads.
.
elephants in myanmar are worst affected, their body parts being sent to china and traded via social media platforms such as #wechat! .
government licenses have also been approved for pharmaceutical companies to sell elephant skin-based products in china!
.
these shocking findings by @elephantfamily show that a ban on the ivory trade is not enough. wildlife consumption continues and it is not until perceptions change that elephants are truly safe!

#galapagospenguin are one of the smallest #penguin species in the world and have many natural predators, both on the land and in the sea.
things weren’t looking good for them at the turn of the century. scientists estimated that only a few hundred of the creatures remained on the #galapagosislands, landing the small birds on the #endangered species list. #internationalpenguinsday #savepenguins .

White tiger : a subspecies of tiger found throughout the indian subcontinent. these animals are incredibly rare as their coloration is dependant on a defective, recessive gene that is passed on from their parents. unlike the white variation found in other animal species the white tiger is not an albino as they still carry some form of pigment that creates their fur color. despite the beauty of the white tigers fur these individuals have a disadvantage as they are not so easily camouflaged into the surrounding jungle. one of the biggest reasons for white tigers becoming rarer and rarer in the wild is the fact that they were often captured by the rich who kept them as an incredibly exotic pet. but there have been lots of theories and statements regarding their population. it is said that their are no white tiger individuals known to be found outside of captivity.

Repost @maac_official -

the snow leopard, referred to as the ‘mountain ghost’ as a result of its elusive nature and extremely infrequent sightings, is one of the least understood of the big cats. categorized as 'endangered' on the iucn red list, there are only between 4,080 - 6,590 snow leopards living in the wild.their greatest threat today is human-snow leopard conflict. the animals are killed, with greater frequency, by humans in retaliation for their preying on livestock, which is increasingly populating snow leopard habitat. @maac_official partners with @tearsfortigers to offer opportunities for travellers to get involved with snow leopard conservation work, where they can accompany leading biologists in the field and learn more about the work being done to preserve this species. #iucn #endangered #asiatravel #staywild #snowleopard #wildlife #biologists #conservation #preservation #naturewins #savethemwithsound #ecotravel
