Over the past few years, we’ve been proud to support the work of @amazonfrontlines and alianzaceiboamazonia, who together are building an indigenous-led movement to defend the Amazon rainforest, indigenous ways of life, and our climate. Watch their video to learn more. Because we believe their work is so important, and so urgent, LDF is excited to announce that we’ll be matching all monthly donations to these organizations up to $50,000 per month throughout 2019. Building a community of monthly givers is vital to this powerful work in the Amazon. We invite you to join the movement and double your impact through 2019 by becoming a monthly donor today at: https://www.amazonfrontlines.org/donate/
#Repost@natgeopristineseas Incredible news for our ocean! Today the Argentinian Senate voted for the creation of two new marine protected areas (MPAs): Namuncurá/Banco Burdwood 2 (29,000 square kilometers) and Yaganes (69,000 square km), located in the southern waters of the country. On December 5, the Argentinian Congress voted in favor with an unanimous 196-0. With these new MPAs, Argentina quadruples their federal MPAs, and joins the ambition and vision of leading countries in ocean conservation. These areas contain unique biodiversity, from threatened albatrosses that roam the skies, to marine mammals like sea lions and whales, to fragile deep sea animals living on undersea mountain ridges. The biggest threat to these rich ocean ecosystems is industrial fishing, especially bottom trawling that can destroy thousands of years of growth in the single pass of a net. By protecting these areas, Argentina also helps to replenish its overfished stocks. Thank you Argentina for such historic action! . . . @natgeopristineseas@tierradelfuegogob@rabinosergiobergman@emilianoez#secretariaambienteargentina@estebanbullrich@tompkins_conservation@fmarpatagonico@parquesnacionalesar#oceans5 Every one of these MPAs contributes to our #wyssfoundation#campaignfornature 30% protected by 2030 target.

#Repost@amazonfrontlines This past week, @AmazonFrontlines and Ceibo Alliance had the honor of accompanying members of the Kofán community of Sinangoe, the Siona of Wisuya and the Waorani of Pastaza in a series of meetings with the UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, @VickiTauli-corpus, during her visit to Ecuador. These meetings allowed members of these communities to describe the systematic violations of their rights by governments and extractive companies to Ms. Tauli-Corpuz, who released the preliminary results from her visit yesterday.⠀ ⠀ “During my visits to communities and in dialogue with indigenous peoples, I’ve observed that so-called development projects have violated and continue to violate peoples’ fundamental rights… These grave violations of human rights, including the collective right to prior consultation, have been recognized in recent provincial court rulings, as is the case with Río Blanco and Sinangoe. I truly hope that these sentences are duly applied.” ⠀ ⠀ Thank you, Ms. Tauli-Corpuz, for taking the time to listen to the indigenous peoples of Ecuador who have been fighting in defense of their lands and rights against enormous threats on behalf of future generations and our planet.

#Repost@oneearth Investing in #NaturalClimateSolutions is cost-effective, can boost economies & bring multiple co-benefits for sustainable development, beyond #ClimateChange mitigation and adaptation. Research shows that with changes in global land-use practices NOW, nature can provide >1/3 of the emissions reductions we need between now and 2030 to meet the goals of the #ParisAgreement.#TheForgottenSolution#COP24
#Repost@wwf_tigers We’re glad to see her muddy and healthy after being moved to a secure facility in Indonesia. There are only less than 80 of these Sumatran rhinos in the world after decades of poaching and habitat loss. The rescue operation attempts to save them from imminent extinction and increase their numbers that will allow them to be returned to the wild where they belonged. Wild tiger population has not reached such a critically low number but will it? Only around 3890 wild tigers are left worldwide and they are threatened by the same issues as rhinos in the Sumatra island.
#Repost@ourplanetdaily The Wild Caracal Kitten! 🐱 Caracals are truly stunning animals with so much natural beauty and majestic eloquence! Curious facts: The Caracal is native to many places around the world such as Africa and Asia, is primarily a nighttime predator, and is most recognizable through its incredibly unique ears which it uses for visual forms of communication.

Just beautiful! #Repost@paulhiltonphoto If only they could communicate to us, surely it would be profound. Being a voice for voiceless is right thing to do, without them we have nothing. The connection is deep, the survival of all life depends on species for functioning ecosystems. We can not afford to allow these species to go extinct. #lovetheleuser#cutconflictpalmoil#racingextinction helps them with a donation, link in my bio, for turtles, or for elephants 🐘 go to https://www.gofundme.com/Leuser-epu
“Today represents a true landmark for the future of the jaguar. The Jaguar 2030 Roadmap breathes new life into the world of jaguar conservation, providing a vision and real solutions for the world to protect this culturally iconic and ecologically essential species, while creating tremendous economic opportunities and a sustainable future for all. Particularly as new and pervasive threats emerge for the species, this first-of-its-kind global commitment shines a much-needed conservation spotlight on the often overlooked jaguar.” - Panthera Conservation Science Executive Director, Dr. Howard Quigley #jaguarday#internationaljaguarday@mesdeljaguar@pantheramexico Photo credit @veronicadomitphoto
