#TriviaTuesday: True or False? Coral reefs protect 150,000km (over 93,000 miles)
#TriviaTuesday: True or False? Coral reefs protect 150,000km (over 93,000 miles) of coastline from the effects of storm surges, a distance of more than 3.7 times the circumference of the Earth. . . . . . ANSWER: True. Coral reefs not only provide a home for 25% of marine species, they also buffer coastal communities from too much wave energy that can cause excessive erosion. 📸 by @lucianocandisani

Dating back more than 3,000 years, Samoan culture is rooted in a respect for and reliance on the environment. Traditional livelihoods such as fishing, agriculture and, more recently, tourism are all dependent on natural resources. ​. Since 2006, @ConservationOrg has worked with the Samoa government and local communities to conserve critical forest ecosystems and support sustainable management of their oceans. We empower societies to responsibly and sustainably care for their natural resources and recognize that the voyaging culture of the Samoa is inextricably linked with nature.

Scientists confirm a @ConservationOrg funded study out of the University of Delhi has resulted in the discovery of a new genus and species of Narrow-mouthed frogs. It is indeed surprising that this entirely new genus of frog went unnoticed until now. Unlike most new discoveries that have resulted from explorations in forested areas, this new frog was discovered from a roadside puddle in one of the most explored and researched areas in the Western Ghats.

#TriviaTuesday#ValentinesDay edition: Emperor Penguins, the largest species of penguin in the world, march through the cold of Antarctica to mate and raise their young. But are they monogamous? 1. Yes 2. No 3. It’s complicated . . . . . . ANSWER: It’s complicated. If you’ve seen the popular documentary “March of the Penguins” you might think these birds are monogamous – which they are…but only for one breeding season. They have one mate per year and stay faithful to that mate, until their chick leaves the roost and mating season comes around again. Fidelity between years is relatively low; experts believe that because of the short window for mating opportunity, it’s no use waiting around for last year’s mate to show up. For emperor #penguins it’s better to love the one you’re with.

No matter where on Earth you call home, forests make your life possible. They are so many things – our respite, our natural air filters, our water factories, our medicine cabinets. We literally can’t live without them. And at @ConservationOrg we work to ensure the world’s most important forests are protected for future generations.
