Hi everyone! It’s @tynskiphoto taking over @unbiodiversity for a week of Canadian wildlife. Urban sprawl continues to be a challenge facing or wild animals. As we humans continue to expand and take over land that was previously untouched, we continue exert pressure on wild populations and at some point must end the practice. In my opinion it can only happen through education and public awareness. “Deer Tracks “...

Hey everyone! It’s @tynskiphoto taking over @unbiodiversity for the week. The bald eagle is evidence that changing our ways can help save a species. DDT in the 80’s put these majestic birds at risk, but with banning the pesticide, education and many reintroduction programs helped to build a healthier population in North America.

This is @tynskiphoto taking over @unbiodiversity for a week of Canadian wildlife. Canada has sixteen species of owls. The face of an owl is flat which funnels sound directly to it ears. This gives the owl ten times the hearing power than a human and utilizes it for hunting its prey. Owls eyes cannot turn, but not to worry, their heads can rotate to 270 degrees, so likely they won’t miss too much.

This is @tynskiphoto taking over @unbiodiversity for the week celebrating Canadian wildlife. The red fox (vulpes vulpes) May just be my favourite mammal to photograph. Red foxes are found in every province and territory in our great country. They average between 4 and 7 kilograms with a lifespan of 3 to 6 years. It is very important not to feed fox or any wildlife in the wild, a fed fox is a dead fox, and we don’t want that 🦊

This is @tynskiphoto taking over @unbiodiversity for the week celebrating Canadian wildlife. The UN Convention on Biological Diversity is headquartered in Montreal, Canada. So to kick off the week of wildlife, what could be a more appropriate choice than the moose (Alces alces). The female averages 350kg while the male is just over 400kg with a life expectancy between 8 to 12 years.

Free forever! By @wildgyeinitiative . . This is a Great Green Macaw, commonly known in Ecuador 🇪🇨 as the Guayaquil’s Macaw (Ara ambiguus guayaquilensis) a subspecies of my city. Unfortunately, the transfromation of their habitat and the lack of financing $$$ for longterm conservation is scarce and limited. I must mention the incredible work of different foundations that have worked for the Guayaquil’s Macaw conservation "in situ" and "ex situ" of the habitat, as well the attention provided to other bird species. Additionally, I’m adding that have work hard towards the conservation of the following Make sure to follow them @bosquecerroblanco @ferjambeli @amazonalilacina @fundacionjocotoco @chesterzoo . Likewise I present to you other species of Psittacids that inhabit my city and are threatened by urban development and the agricultural industry . . Seeing them free is what we have always wanted! ENJOY THE PHOTOBOOTH!!! ——————————————————————————

@wildgyeinitiative ・・・ Over 2000 ha where deforested in the Guayas provinces during the last decade due to land use change driven by URBAN DEVELOPMENT and EXTENSIVE AGRICULTURE. According to the last report of @ipbes_ these two are the main reasons that will drive humans crisis. This area in the video is part of the most important mountain ridge in coastal Ecuador, which is distinctively ENDEMIC. Pigio trees (Calvalinesia platanifolia) are outstanding indicators of tropical dry forest ecosystems. We demand becomes a cero deforestation city. We are fundraising to maintain the most threatened forest ecosystem on the continent. Thank you very much to @salvemosalpijio campaign who are willing to help in the protection of last real forest. —————————————————————————— Más de 2000 hectáreas fueron deforestadas en las provincias de Guayas debido al cambio en el uso del suelo impulsado por el DESARROLLO URBANO y la AGRICULTURA EXTENSIVA. De acuerdo con el último informe de de @ipbes_, estas dos son las razones principales que impulsarán la crisis de los humanos. Esta área en el video es parte de la cordillera montañosa más importante del litoral ecuatoriano debido al ENDEMISMO. Los árboles pigio (Cavanillesia platanifolia) son indicadores de los ecosistemas de bosques tropicales secos. Exigimos a convertirse en una ciudad de deforestación cero. Estamos recaudando fondos para mantener el ecosistema forestal más amenazado en el continente ——————————————————————————

Happy WORLD ENVIRONMENT Day!!! 🥳🐛🦋🐝🐆🦇💨 🌬 . Lets with . . For this year, the World Environment Day has been focused in highlighting the harmful effects of air pollution after the increase in air particles. Some of them are known as GREENHOUSE GASES (GHG). The worst compound of all is the METHANE (CH4) produced by our 💨 and the 🐄 🐮. In addition, we do not take into account the amount of GHG emanated by non-traditional sanitary landfills, when they should be used for energy production (combustion). However, what we do know is that healthy ecosystems such as this Neotropical Dry Forest improves air quality in . . . . FOLLOW 👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼@wildgyeinitiative 🐆👌🏻🐛🦋🦇 ——————————————————————————

Continuing with @wildgyeinitiative, I would like to show you the reality of my hometown. Guayaquil () is the biggest city and economic capital of the most biodiverse country on Earth, per square meters. . . Within two of the most endangered ecosystems are found: The Guayaquil Flooded Mangroves forest and Tumbes Guayaquil Seasonal Dry Forest. Due to its biological attributes, it is locally call the “PEARL OF THE PACIFIC” Guayaquil is located within the Tumbes-Choco-Darien Biodiversity Hotspot, based on @thenatureconservancy. . . Most of the important biodiversity relies on high and productive endemism, even though biological richness is lower when compared to the Ecuadorian Amazon. However, this developing city host an increasing 3 million people, more than 22% of Ecuadors population and an impressive urban development rate of 2 times faster than the last decades, which add extraordinary pressure on our natural protected areas. —————————————————————————— FOLLOW 👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼 @wildgyeinitiative NOW!!! ——————————————————————————
