great news from @leonardodicapriofdn and tompkins conservation’s rewilding project. #regram#rg @tompkins_conservation: a new generation of jaguars is born in iberá for the first time in decades! meet the newest additions to iberá park in corrientes, argentina. these two tiny cubs are the first newborns of our jaguar reintroduction program at iberá park and represent the future of their species in the region. the jaguar is the largest feline in the americas and is currently in critical danger of extinction in argentina, after having lost 95% of its original distribution. to help avoid the extinction of this species in argentina, our team has been working urgently in recent years to help bring back jaguar to their native range in the northeastern wetlands of argentina. the arrival of these cubs marks a historic moment for our rewilding work and for conservation. // ¡por primera vez en décadas una nueva generación de jaguares nace en el parque iberá! estos dos pequeños cachorros son los primeros recién nacidos de nuestro programa de reintroducción de jaguares en el parque iberá y representan el futuro de sus especies en la región. el jaguar es el felino más grande de américa y actualmente se encuentra en grave peligro de extinción en argentina, luego de haber perdido el 95% de su distribución original. para ayudar a evitar la extinción de esta especie en argentina, nuestro equipo ha estado trabajando intensamente en los últimos años para ayudar a traer al jaguar a su rango nativo en los humedales del noreste de argentina. la llegada de estos cachorros marca un momento histórico para nuestro trabajo de conservación.

the high seas - marine waters beyond any country’s jurisdiction - cover 64 percent of the ocean’s surface, and are dominated by a handful of fishing countries that reap the biggest benefits of fishing in these global commons. the main types of fishing in the high seas target tuna (like the yellowfin in the photo), sharks, squid, krill, and deep bottom-dwelling fish. but do these countries really benefit from that distant fishing? and who does? a new @natgeopristineseas study reveals that, without large government subsidies, fishing in more than half of the current high seas fishing grounds would be unprofitable. in fact, on aggregate, subsidies to high seas fishing (more than $4 billion per year) are more than twice larger than the profits. these results support the idea of eliminating subsidies that perpetuate overfishing and destruction of the marine environment. for a bolder proposal for conservation of the high seas, watch enric sala's ted talk (link at @enricsala profile)

#regram#rg @amazonfrontlines: in february, despite massive protests by indigenous amazonians, the ecuadorian government announced the auction of 16 new oil blocks in the amazon, covering nearly 7 million acres of roadless, primary rainforest. block 22 overlaps the legal territory of 18 waorani communities. all 18 communities are united in resistance and launched a global campaign last week in opposition to oil extraction on indigenous lands. they have drafted a petition to oil companies telling them not to bid on oil block 22. their lands are not for sale. ⠀
support the waorani and help defend the amazon. sign the global petition petition telling oil companies that waorani land, the most biodiverse rainforest on earth, is not for sale! ⠀

#regram#rg @nrdc_org: exactly a year ago, president trump vowed to withdraw u.s. participation from the 2015 paris climate agreement. fortunately, leaders across the country have rejected trump’s call to walk away from the promise of paris. that’s why we are proud to join @bloombergdotorg in announcing the bloomberg american cities climate challenge: which calls on america’s mayors to lead the way in tackling climate change and join the #wearestillin pledge. learn more in our profile link.
