Protect #monkeys from #wildfires! A wildfire recently came within 100 yards of our primate #sanctuary in Texas where there is an extreme drought. Help protect the monkeys against future fires with firefighting equipment that will save lives! bit.ly/bfusawildfires
The #biodiversity crisis impacts everyone on the planet – from the #animals, plants, and #ecosystems directly impacted to the human communities (all of us!) that rely on nature. ow.ly/CixZ50JYyU6
#Wildlife #sanctuaries do their best to rescue as many animals as they can, but space and resources are limited. Sanctuary is not the solution to wild animal captivity. Instead, laws are needed to ban private ownership, captive breeding, and trafficking. ow.ly/4ZTn50JWbiW
While Picassa the elderly #baboon was only with us for a few months before her health failed, they were months filled with joy and friendship – and by far the happiest of her long life! Read our tribute to Picassa in this #blog by Dr. Liz Tyson. ow.ly/rLIa50JW9LK

Human activity is pushing species to the brink. It's time to #ProtectNature, #InvestInNature, and promote #biodiversity! ow.ly/KoHn50JT4fC
"Wildlife is something which man cannot construct. Once it is gone, it is gone forever. Man can rebuild a pyramid, but he can’t rebuild ecology or a giraffe." - Joy Adamson. #giraffe #quote #fridayfeeling

"The 'if it pays, it stays' approach which seems to underpin many arguments in favour of #TrophyHunting has much more often led to the loss of natural ecosystems." ow.ly/8vOY50JOJGp

Far from a #WildlifeConservation win for Siberian #tigers, the birth of these babies at the #zoo simply means a life sentence of unnatural captivity for the sake of human entertainment. ow.ly/ojvC50JOCt9

This is a terrible, cruel, awful idea on so many levels, it's hard to even list them all. #Animals are not props. Animals are not there for our entertainment. Animals belong in the wild. ow.ly/MvR150JOzJ1
Happy #FourthOfJuly from Born Free USA! 🇺�lw
#SixFlags Safari in New Jersey recently announced the birth of five Siberian #tiger cubs. News articles are praising the captive births as a "win" for #wildlifeconservation, but that could not be further from the truth! New #blog ⤵️ ow.ly/B3NL50JMSOg
"You can use your voice — and your pocketbook — to speak up for animals; say 'no' to shows that include animal acts." Great op-ed in @connpost! Even without laws banning animal shows, the public can decide not to support shows & venues that hurt animals. ow.ly/nzvh50JG1pT

"The findings point to 'important mismatches between potential public support for conservation and the species most in need of this support'" Human perception of animal beauty impacts conservation efforts & can make us overlook "less beautiful" species. ow.ly/uhhO50JFaWX
