A dust bath on a sunny morning. This young fella using his trunk for dust bath which help him to absorb from direct heat and to reduce skin parasites of disease. Dust or mud are always used as an extra moisturiser to clean up and care for skin therapy. As we all know evry pachyderm species are used this technique to protect them. Observing his behaviour from early 5:40 am to 7:09 am and an hour he was busy in grazing. He was engaging dusting at least 4 times during grazing and after that he released the spot to enter high forest. Kash,. Chepti and small dubba grass have been eaten with some native herb species.

BLACK CAIMAN

The largest predator in all of Amazonia. With up to half a ton and about 6 m long, they are easily the largest species of caiman. However, they had been hunted for their skins and were critically endangered, so seeing large specimens is still rare. Strong conservation efforts led to the species bouncing back across its range, but these guys grow their entire lives, so it takes many decades to get a good stock of big specimens again. I have seen and personally caught more than a hundred of these animals and only twice have I seen black caimans over 4 m long. In fact, these shy animals are tricky to photograph and this photo shows the only ever specimen I encountered during the day! I'll be back in Peru soon, hopefully I'll be lucky enough to find and photograph more of my favourite crocodilians 😍. Photo from my last collaboration with @faunaforever. If you want to visit the rainforests of Peru, to get insight into biodiversity research or learn about conservation photography with me, contact them! I'll be joining them and their work a few times this winter.

Big thank you to @nikondeutschland for their ongoing support on my projects! #werbung

Photograph by @gena.g.steffens for @everydayextinction - Hi, I’m a photographer and writer based in Colombia. I took this picture for the July/August Smithsonian Magazine story about Burmese pythons, an invasive species that is currently decimating native wildlife populations in the Florida Everglades. Biologist Ian Bartoszek (center) has an army of male Burmese pythons slithering around the Naples, FL area that assist him in tracking down massive, egg-laying females like the one stretched out on the table. This one weighed in at nearly 170 lbs, and she got that big by gorging on wildlife native to the Everglades. Ironically, while populations boom out of control in Florida, Burmese pythons are increasingly threatened in their native habitats of Southeast Asia. Follow me @gena.g.steffens for more!

Another undergrowth species from tea garden. A wild mushroom which is mostly found in tea garden undergrowth besides nullah. It's a seasonal mushroom and ocassionally adibasi's are depends on it. It can increase it's size due to weather and better soil condition upto 90cm. It's hard to photograph those species which is resident under the tea garden bush but important to understand the diversity under this 3 ft camouflaged shelter.

Gunnison Sage-grouse (GuSg) carousel, swipe for 6 more photos.
Stand for the ESA. Gutting the Endangered Species Act (just last week) read like a monetary equation where Endangered animals need to somehow carry a value greater than whatever would be extracted from their habitat by big industry. I’ve been ruminating on this a lot and mostly thinking about the western spirit where westerners choose to work together for the greater good, conservation in community. Consider the GuSg, designated as Threatened with protections under the Endangered Species Act. There are roughly 4,000 - 5,000 individuals in the world, with most of of their leks, or mating grounds on private ranchlands - so imagine that this endangered species spends ~ 30% of their lives on private lands and the rest on public lands with the necessity for strong public/private land partnerships for the namesake bird of the extended Gunnison community. For decades, the community has come together for this incredible animal - conservationist and rancher, academic and gov agency pulling together for their Endangered bird. With tools like conservation easements and Candidate Conservation Agreements with Assurances (CCCA’s), ranchers have stepped up in partnership with the community to conserve and improve habitat. The ESA has evolved to a transparent, inclusive process designed to engage local communities and all of this goodwill and agreeing to work together is intertwined with regional economies. That’s very different from the Bernhardt/Trump narrative. Conservation in community is a thing in the west that brings people together. Images: GuSg males fighting in pasture in a private lands lek. 2. Ohio Creek Valley, with ranchland surrounded by public land remains best habitat for GuSg. 3. “Save Our Gunnison Sage Grouse by the Brownie Troop. 4. Conservation hero Dr. Pat McGee studying sage songbirds. 5. GuSg male being fitted for a radio collar and relocation to bolster a satellite lek. 6. Male GuSg displaying on ranchland. 7. Sagebrush winter habitat in Flattop Mtn., with a backdrop of the Elk Range. #endangeredspeciesact #gunnisonsagegrouse #endangeredspecies #conservation #ilcp_photographers #braidedriver

Takeover by new Associate Fellow @maxime_aliaga // THE LAST 800 ! In the mountain forests of Sumatra, lives a small population of isolated orangutans. Scientists have recently discovered that their morphology and DNA were very different from the other two species already known: the Bornean Orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus) and the Sumatran Orangutan (Pongo abelii). In fact, they have a smaller skull but longer canines; their coat is also brighter than these cousins. On November 3, 2017 the news fell, the Orangutan of Tapanuli (Pongo tapanuliensis) is formalized by the scientific world as the third species of orangutan! Based on extensive studies, it appears that they separated from the other two species about 3.4 million years ago. More surprising, they would be closer to the Bornean Orangutan than Sumatran Orangutan. The first survey of this new species shows that there is only 800 Tapanuli orangutan left, living exclusively in Batang toru Forest. They have been directly classify in the Critically endangered species category by the UICN red list. With this very small population left, the Tapanuli is the most endangered great apes in the world. However a destructive and impactful hydro dam project is right now under construction in the middle of their only ecosystem ! Scientist and local activist are trying to fight against this damaging project who could lead to the destruction of 20% of the only habitat of the Tapanuli... For the behind the scene, it took me 7 days to find my first Tapanuli orangutan during my last expedition, it was TOGOS, this big dominant male.
