It's heartbreaking that our koalas are trying to find homes in places like billboards, barbed wire fences, timber poles and even trucks, because they can't find trees to live in. More: http://www.konbini.com/us/lifestyle/koalas-deforestation-inappropriate-homes/
The flower doesn't think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.

A medicinal and aromatic plant, like many other species of "gentiana" plant is rich in bitter-tasting which are applied in the treatment of gastrointestinal tract diseases. The roots are applied as a decoction, extract or tincture
A close up shot of the #redpanda - painted in #shanghai Which is an #endangered#species from #china - its numbers have decreased by 50% in the last three generations (18 years)! There are many reasons for their decline... from overpopulating humans - to canine disease... perhaps the worst impacting factor is #deforestation - the pandas mostly eat bamboo and the lack of growth after the flowering season, (due to increased deforestation) leaves the pandas with a severe lack of food... in addition farmed cattle compete for the same preferred environment that the pandas depend on! The red pandas bushy tails are also prized for wedding attire, apparently it brings good luck! Not lucky for the species though! This project with @color_way_of_love has given me the opportunity to highlight this sad story to a nation that the #giantpanda (recently removed from the endangered list) is so highly respected! I hope that the red panda can one day join its non related, cousin the giant panda in conservation success! Shout outs to my homeslice @shanghai_dream for the photo! ONE LOVE
The bear has a point!
If we don't treat the planet right, we ALL pay the price - humans, animals, even (spoiler alert) people dressed as polar bears!
The more we can switch from finite to sustainable resources, the better Repost from @marketing.coach
One wonders about the future of these little ones. Tsavo is home to just over 12,500 elephants - that's a third of all the elephants in Kenya. In the late 60's there were 35,000 elephants in this area. A combination of drought and poaching has decimated the population. The problem is real. Visit tsavotrust.org to read more and get involved. Knowledge is power.
