"Like monarchs, painted ladies complete their long migrations over the course of several generations. Traveling north, female butterflies lay eggs on plants in the daisy family, particularly thistles, on which emerging larvae munch. Once caterpillars have spun their chrysalises and emerged as adults, this new generation continues the journey, fanning out across North America to feed on wildflowers such as blazing star, iron weed, joe-pye weed, milkweed and aster." - Excerpt from National Wildlife Magazine - link in story.

Lansing, W.VA. —Environmental groups applauded a move to keep clean water protections for the Ohio River. The regional body charged with overseeing the health of the river, the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission, today decided not to vote on a controversial proposal that sought to replace 70 years of regional cooperation among eight states bordering the river in setting pollution control standards. The commission stated they intend to continue deliberations on the matter, and conservation groups see this as an opportunity for more meaningful dialogue about its implications for the future health of the river. More than 5 million people depend on the Ohio River for their drinking water, and conservation groups staunchly opposed the move to outright scrap the current pollution-reduction arrangement. Massive public input in favor of regional cooperation helped convince commissioners to take a step back and reassess their options. After the meeting, conservation groups applauded the action by the commissioners and by the governors who appointed them, including Govs. Bruce Rauner (Ill.), Eric Holcomb (Ind.), Matt Bevin (Ky.), Andrew Cuomo (N.Y.), John Kasich (Ohio), Tom Wolf (Pa.), Ralph Northam (Va.), and Jim Justice (W.Va.).

"Morning sun lights the face of a red fox as it emerges from its den at the Lake Erie Nature and Science Center in Ohio. Devoted to education and wildlife rehabilitation, the center acquired this fox from people who had raised it as a pet, habituating it to humans and crippling its ability to survive in the wild. Using a telephoto lens, photographer Ken Busch was “surprised” by this unexpected—and lovely—moment." Excerpt from National Wildlife Magazine - link in bio & story!

With algal outbreaks in Florida and Michigan, read an excerpt from our National Wildlife Magazine (Jan, 2017): “For most of the summer and early fall of 2016, Florida’s St. Lucie River was in the national news—for all the wrong reasons. Long prized as a legendary fishery and biologically rich estuary that flows into the Indian River Lagoon along the Atlantic coast, the St. Lucie was making headlines for being clogged with putrid, toxic algae so thick it resembled guacamole. And the St. Lucie wasn’t alone. To the west, parts of the Caloosahatchee River also flowed green, sickened with algae. Its waters feed into Pine Island Sound, Florida’s second largest estuary and home to the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge as well as some of the nation’s best sport fisheries for species such as tarpon, spotted seatrout and red drum.” Find link in our story to read more!

"As part of its ongoing efforts to promote diversity, the National Wildlife Federation convened its second annual Women in Conservation Leadership (WCL) Summit in March near the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. More than 330 women from 120 partner organizations and government agencies came together for the three-day event to share experiences, support common goals and discuss the barriers they face in attaining leadership positions. “Empowering women is a key part of strengthening the conservation movement,” NWF President and CEO Collin O’Mara told the group at the opening session, where he brought his young daughter (pictured). “The Federation is committed to investing time and resources into this critically important work.”" - Excerpt from National Wildlife Magazine - link in bio & story.

In 2015, developers installed the foundations of America’s first five offshore wind turbines off the coast of Rhode Island’s Block Island. Now, just three years later, this underwater structure is teeming with new life. Mussels, fish, and other organisms have made their homes around the bases of the turbines, which provide clean energy to 17,000 Rhode Island homes. National Wildlife Federation advocates for the responsible development of offshore wind power as a clean energy solution capable of drastically reducing our reliance on carbon-polluting fossil fuels – and we work to ensure that the highest standards of wildlife protection are in place every step of the way. On Monday at 4pm ET we will be leading a tour of the Block Island Wind Farm – watch our story to see how NWF supports wildlife-friendly clean energy alternatives like offshore wind!

One year ago, the National Wildlife Federation and Paul G. Allen’s @vulcanproduction asked students ages 9-18 to help find the next big idea that could make a material difference for African elephants. Ben Radke, age 12, from Ozark, AR, came up with the winning idea, “Elephant Pride and Bus Rides.” Radke recently returned from his all-expense-paid trip to Botswana. While there he met Naledi, the famous orphaned elephant who was featured in Naledi, One Little Elephant, a documentary film, and inspired the contest. Radke’s parents reported that spending time with the elephants and their caretakers was an unforgettable learning experience and he has now gained a completely new interest in photography and storytelling. Ben says the experience was, “The best days of my life! The whole thing was amazing and unbelievable. Getting to be close to the elephants was amazing and getting to touch them or being touched by them was super-amazing!” We now know that we are losing 96 elephants a day, or 25,000 to 30,000 annually. Data from Paul Allen’s 2016 Great Elephant Census found that we have lost 30 percent of the African savanna elephant population in less than 7 years.

After plucking a long-stemmed flower from an alpine meadow, this plump pika scampered to a perch and nibbled away, devouring the entire snack bottom to top. “There was nothing left,” says Don Jones, who was lucky enough to catch the action through his lens. A veteran wildlife photographer who specializes in big-game species, Jones had been photographing elk in a crowded national park in Alberta, Canada, when he decided to grab some quiet time with smaller creatures. “I was hoping for some alone time,” he says. “It’s like detox, getting away from everyone and having fun with these little critters.” His quest to find pikas paid off when this cooperative little guy showed up for lunch. Jones has had many unforgettable moments with wildlife during his 25-year career, but feels most gratified when people say they appreciate nature more after seeing his work. “I feel empowered when I hear that,” he says. “These animals have given me a lot. I want to give something back.” Excerpt from National Wildlife Magazine.

North America’s greatest diversity of hummingbirds is found along the U.S.–Mexico border. Southeastern Arizona alone hosts up to 15 different species during the migration season, which peaks from early April through late September, making southeastern Arizona a hotspot for hummingbird researchers. These days, much of that research focuses on the potential effects climate change may have on the birds. Like most wildlife, hummingbirds have long faced the dangers posed by habitat loss and fragmentation. Yet many experts now consider climate change to be the leading threat to these much beloved birds—known to John James Audubon as “glittering fragments of the rainbow.” Hummingbirds’ biology makes them particularly vulnerable to climate change. Weighing little more than a few dimes stacked together, a hummingbird is about as small as an animal can be and remain endothermic (or “warm-blooded”)—capable of maintaining a stable body temperature independent of the surrounding environment. Their small size means hummers have limited tolerance for high-temperature extremes. During heat waves, they can be forced to seek shade rather than foraging for food.

Tail clutching a knobby arm of fan coral, this pygmy seahorse—no bigger than a fingernail—perfectly matches the color and pattern of its chosen hideout some 90 feet below the sea in Sulawesi, Indonesia. Photographers Dan and John Cesere battled strong currents to capture this rare and remarkable portrait, a labor of love they call Sweetheart. “In nature,” says Dan, “there’s more than meets the eye—if you take the time to look.” Excerpt from National Wildlife Magazine. 📸: @ceserebrothers

In March, National Wildlife Federation and @beesponsible announced the launch of ‘Don’t Kill My Buzz’, a social advocacy campaign aimed at reversing the decline of bee populations and promoting bee-friendly, pesticide-free gardening and conservation efforts. The partnership was inspired by last year’s decision by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to add the first bumble bee (the rusty patched bumble bee) to the endangered species list as part of the U.S. Endangered Species Act. This was a big step for pollinators, as insects are underrepresented on the endangered species list. Want to help us protect native bees? For each + Beesponsible tag, Beesponsible will donate $1 to our wildlife-friendly gardening programs. Tag your friend below and ask them to "beesponsible"! Read more at the link in our bio 🐝
