Be kind to our mother nature - not only on #endageredspiecesday
Reposted from @davidyarrow - It's #EndangeredSpeciesDay this Friday and in order to maximise the impact of this important day, we will be posting three images this week of endangered animals that I have photographed.
We begin with a recent success story. Wild panda numbers have been rebounding after years of decline and in 2017, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) announced that pandas have been upgraded from “endangered” to “vulnerable” on the global list of species at risk of extinction, following a population growth of nearly 17% over the past decade.
There are success stories out there, and it is important that we celebrate them. I feel privileged to have spent time with this Panda in 2016. I have the image and memory forever, Pandas are surely all about their extraordinary face. - #regrann
