A Sumantran tiger was spotted with cubs within a protected tropical rainforest in Central Sumatra. With less than 400 of these beautiful animals left in the wild these new cubs are an encouraging sign of hope. #ConservationOptimism https://t.co/Q1O8iYwiZb

@sheridantbrown @ConservOptimism @MaryPols @PressHerald Oh I won't give up 🙂 Lots of other pollinators love them, and I hope one day to see the Monarchs. Also, the flowers are wonderful! Here is a watercolor sketch from 4th of July: https://t.co/AcZSzw00BS ConservOptimism photo

@QuinnPiper @ConservOptimism @MaryPols @PressHerald Thank you, and don’t give up! It took us six years here, and some additional planting of milkweed before we started getting them. It’s worth all the effort when those caterpillars start appearing!

@MaryPols @PressHerald Our NH garden has lots of Monarchs this season. Cultivating milkweed with our flowers is one of the best things we can do for them, along with being chem free in our gardens. Leave the goldenrod, too. Not as many as when I was a kid, but increase = #conservationoptimism . https://t.co/qX6vfCAGiV ConservOptimism photo

People are panicking that this is a leopard. It is a fishing cat, and there is no need to panic. Just watch them from a distance and enjoy the fact that we share a city with them! Please help us spread the word, so that the species is kept safe in its urban wetland home! Thank you followers ❤️ #Repost @urbanfishingcat ・・・ This beautiful girl was just seen on little walk in Battaramulla, Sri Lanka. She was probably sleeping in that house that’s being constructed at the back, and was disturbed from her nap. This video goes to show how you could safely watch urban wildlife at any time of the day! Thank you Rajanya Udurawana for the filming this fishing cat, and Danusha Ganewatta for sending it to us! @global_wildlife_conservation #urbanfishingcat #srilanka #urbanwetlands #urbanwildlife #conservation #awareness #smallwildcats #wildcats #cats #catlovers #animals #wildlifeconservation #wildlife #biodiversity #wildlifephotography #gwc #conservation #conservationoptimism #smallcatconservation #wetlands #CITES #IUCN #IUCNRedList #endangeredspecies #vulnerablespecies #colombo #wildcolombo
