Natur die die Welt bewegt

Der Instagram Account von National Geographic (natgeo) gehört zu den besten der Welt. Aber seht selbst:

Image by @joelsartore | A Florida panther at @naples_zoo. While the Florida panther is a majestic creature, they’ve been feared by humans and persecuted for centuries. By the 1970’s, their population dropped to fewer than two dozen. Thankfully, conservation programs have been very successful in growing the Florida panther population to more than 180 individuals. Their fight continues though. Vehicle collisions are the number one threat to Florida panthers– last year at least 34 were killed on the road. Visit to learn of the importance of slowing down, scanning the road, and being aware that these beautiful animals could be trying to cross. This panther, named Uno, was found on the side of the road in 2014, emaciated and blinded after suffering gunshot wounds to his hind quarters and face. He was taken to @naples_zoo to be treated and made a remarkable recovery. A true survivor, Uno now lives in his own special habitat at the zoo that's tailored to his unique needs. The Naples Zoo is helping all Florida panthers by spreading awareness of the complex issues surrounding them in a state with more humans arriving every year.

Image by @joelsartore | I’m delighted to report that, in my hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska, our Mayor Chris Beutler and the City Parks and Recreation Department have been seeding new parkland (and some older parks as well) with a mix of prairie grasses and wildflowers in order to benefit pollinators like bees and butterflies to create a more healthy landscape. Click the link in my bio (@joelsartore) to learn how you can do the same in your yards! We love bees, so the hero of this #pollinatormonday is the bumblebee. Bees are perhaps the most well-known pollinator, and this is because they are very good at their jobs. The common eastern bumble bee's wings beat 130 times or more per second, and the beating vibrates flowers until they release pollen, which gets stuck on their fuzzy bodies and is then moved along to the next flower it visits. This kind of pollination is called “buzz pollination”, and helps plants produce more fruit. It is estimated one in every three bites of food we can thank bees for, and up to $15 billion worth of food production in the U.S. is dependent on pollination by bees of all kinds. That’s a lot of buzzing! Check out @joelsartore for more incredible species. . . #pollinators #savethebees #bumblebee #cute #inscects #bugs #bees #fuzzy #photoark #natgeo #savetogether

Photo by @FransLanting I was lying flat on my stomach with a wide-angle lens aimed at these two wild horses when they reared up to challenge each other for dominance over a herd of mares grazing in the Oostvaardersplassen Nature Reserve in the Netherlands. More than 1,000 wild horses thrive there, less than an hour from Amsterdam, in a place where a generation ago, there were none. It’s a remarkable example of how the Dutch are restoring nature in the midst of one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Follow me @FransLanting to see a video of me photographing these horses. @natgeotravel @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #Horse #WildHorses #Oostvaardersplassen #wildlifephotography #naturephotography
