Okay Deano, lets get this straight. You got this dexter at 4 months. its funny that dexter is yet another animal you acquired at such a young age..particularly around the age they would be pulled from their mother for hand rearing.. hmm, Im sensing a pattern here. 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nobody rescues as many animals at hand rearing age as I’ve seen you with. Except some awful zoos in America such as ZWF and myrtle beach! And we all know how they buy and trade in wildlife. So my bullshit meter is going again 🚨 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ if there is anyone to blame for human contact damage, you don’t have to look much further - YOUR behaviour. You have contributed more than any by playing fucking tarrzan and exploiting it at such a young age and its clear you have no idea how to manage captive animals. This cat would have been fine at 3/4 months of age with a approved hand rearing plan and a hands off approach keeping him as wild as possible. Its been done with many different cats at legit rescue centres. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ but of course if you had a clue about captive animals, you would be rescuing mature adult animals that are suffering terribly across Africa. But some how that wouldn’t be as much fun would it? Considering you wouldn’t be able to handle them and make yourself a celebrity in the process ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 𝗜𝗡𝗙𝗢 🐵 : Truth & knowledge through facts ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💪 : Made up of current & ex accredited zoo/sanctuary staff 🌎 : Guiding people who love animals to a deeper understanding ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💻 : Follow us @thewelfareperspective ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #️⃣ : Love to TAG?

One of the best things I think you can do as an entrepreneur, is shop for and buy the type of products you sell. See what it’s like to be on the other side once in a while. . Recently I attended a ‘self-compassion’ workshop with @thefatfunnyone - a very rad influencer here in the UK. Partly to see what it’s like to be on the other side... partly to spend a day out of the office working on mindset stuff ( #takingmyownadvice ), and partly because the topic of ‘self-compassion’ is of particular interest to me. . At one point during the day - Jess wrote the word ‘Nowhere’ on the board - and pointed out that with a slight shift in perspective - the same letters say ‘Now Here’. . This really struck me - because I personally (and I know I’m not alone) tend to flip-flop between focusing on what I don’t have or haven’t done- and then being grateful and present and confident in the knowledge that even the stuff that feels crap at the time is critical to the journey. Know what I mean? . We are all exactly where we need to be right now. If it’s not as far or as fast or as fancy as you’d like, look around... I bet you two things are true: . 1. It’s a whole hell of a lot better than it seems (it could be a LOT worse - find some joy in the stuff that’s good healthy/ happy / working) . 2. There is some pressure forcing you to change or grow- and ultimately you’ll be grateful for that (even though it’s uncomfortable). . You might feel like you’re in a bit of ‘nowhere’ or even ‘everywhere’ but in reality you are just HERE. Right now. In this moment. Breathing air and living life. . How great is that!!?? . Pretty fantastic indeed when you let it really sink in... . Are you feeling nowhere or everywhere right now? What is one thing you’re grateful for anyway?

Seeing a leopard tortoise was near the top of my wish list, and this little goober was kind enough to stroll through camp on my birthday! Coleman’s hands for scale. Leopard tortoises are common in their range, but as far as I can tell, somewhat difficult to find! The species is also popular in the exotic pet trade. Though the trade doesn’t seem to have had as much of an effect on the wild population as with other species, I just can’t imagine this guy confined to 150 square feet. He would have crossed an enclosure in 30 seconds; he had places to be! . #leopardtortoise #Stigmochelyspardalis #wildtortoise #earthcapture #wildlifeencounters #pettrade #exoticpets #bbcearth #natgeowild #cutegram #tinythings #earthbeauty #adorableanimals @richardscamp #maasaimara
The Chatuchak Market is well known for its sale of exotic pets. The exotic pet trade is intertwined with the illegal wildlife trade and detrimental for the natural world and driving animal cruelty. You can find everything from Alligator snapping turtle to Pygmy marmoset to baby squirrels and meerkats as well as CITES listed wildlife such as the African grey parrot. Humans have this sick need for ownership and locking things up in cages because they see it as theirs. Instead of attaching intrinsic value to animals and respecting them as they are, people have the urge to profit from animals and own them. Be it endangered wildlife or dogs and cats everything is viewed as a commodity even though it’s a living being which feels fear, stress, and pain. People tend to view these creatures as nothing more than a toy that can be tossed around and made money with. I hope one day people will become more conscious about their actions that currently make beings that can’t speak out for themselves suffer. The relationship between an animal and the human that takes care of that animal should be mutualistic and not exploitive. #bangkok #thailand #chatuchakmarket #illegalwildlifetrade #pet #pettrade #illegalpettrade #selfishpeople #wildlifeconservation #cites #parrots #animals #love #animalrights
We applaud the reintroduction of the Captive #Primate Safety Act, a bill to prohibit interstate commerce and foreign sale of primates for the exotic pet trade! We thank @repbrianfitz and @repblumenauerfor reintroducing this compassionate legislation! Read our statement at the link in our profile! #StopWildlifeTrafficking #ExoticPets #ExoticPetTrade #PetTrade
A newly introduced bill called the #CaptivePrimateSafetyAct  (CPSA), that’s supported by Animal Welfare Institute (@awionline ), addresses the cruel and dangerous problem of pet primate ownership in the #UnitedStates . Sponsored by Reps. @repblumenauer (D-OR) and @repbrianfitz (R-PA), this bill would amend the #LaceyAct to prohibit interstate commerce in nonhuman primates (including #apes , #monkeys , #lemurs , and #lorises ) for the exotic #pettrade .🙏🐵 - “The suffering pet primates endure is alarming,” said Cathy Liss, President of AWI in a statement. “They are often forcibly removed from their mothers soon after birth, spend their lives isolated in small cages and endure unnecessary, painful procedures such as tooth extraction. The Captive Primate Safety Act is urgently needed to prevent these animals from entering the inhumane interstate pet trade.” - Conservative estimates suggest that there are at least 15,000 primates kept as pets in the United States. 💔🦍🐵🚫 #EndThePetTrade - - READ MORE: 🌍👉WorldAnimalNews.com @worldanimalnews_ @peace_4animals #WorldAnimalNews

Swipe for a fantastic progression For inquiring minds: this rodent is a chinchilla, commonly referred to as the softest mammal on the planet. While being soft results in these leaping creatures looking 100% adorable the fur also serves a couple of particular purposes: camo, warmth, and predator evasion. Camo - The colors, turkey. They allow Chins to hide amongst rocky outcropping in the Andes. Warmth - Up at high elevations it is incredibly cold. Their thick fur shields them from the cold by holding warm air against their body. Predator evasion - Y’all. They have the ability to spontaneously drop their fur. It’s brilliant. Since the fur is incredibly thick a predator can only grasp at hairs, which can be shed as easily as I shed my adult responsibilities. This gives them the ability to escape while a predator is left with a bad taste in their mouth. As with everything, this fur comes at a cost. If they get wet chinchillas can mildew; if they shed too much fur they can freeze; and often chinchillas are hunted for their coats and for the pet trade. Aye but all isn’t lost: We know the threats, and many people in the region are working to slow their decline. What you can do is be sure to avoid buying wild-sourced fur, and be wary of where your pets are sourced (despite the fact that I don’t recommend them as pets at all). Hats off all you in the field working hard to bring back #endangeredspecies , and of course shouts out to all those chins.
Sleepy African Grey Parrot...The African Grey Parrot has experienced a significant decline over the past 50 years. Its biggest threats are: legal and illegal harvest for domestic and, especially, international pet trade; as well as habitat loss. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services, capture for the pet trade is currently the most significant threat to wild populations. Both legal and illegal trade is having a devastating effect on populations throughout the species’ entire range. Between 60-90% of parrots captured for trade die from poor handling prior to their being shipped for the international market. Over 1.5 million grey parrots were exported between 1984 and 1992 according to the CITES trade database. Assuming a conservative 40-60% mortality rate between capture and export, the total number of birds removed from the wild for the legal trade alone is likely on the order of 1.3 million for this time period.

Woolly monkeys are endangered in their homelands in South America and are at great risk as they are highly specialised monkeys designed to live in the rainforest canopy. Woolly monkeys were very fashionable in the 1960s and 70s as pets and this trade once again dealt their species a heavy blow in terms of population sizes and distributions. The method of capture (which is still the same today) was to shoot at colonies of monkeys, selling the dead adults as bushmeat and the babies as pets. #woollymonkey #scimmialanosa #lily #lagothrix #lagothrixlagotricha #haplorrhini #platyrrhini #newworldmonkey #atelidae #newworld #monkeysanctury #wildfuturesmonkeysanctuary #primates #sanctuary #primatesanctuary #scimmia #animal #zoology #biodiversity #conservation #southamerica #pettrade #animalcare #welfare #education
Photographer @GabrieleGalimbertiPhoto captured this sloth crossing a main road between Cahuita and Puerto Viejo in Costa Rica. These slow movers can’t dodge traffic, so cars are one of the biggest threats to their survival, along with electrocutions from power lines, habitat loss, and the illegal pet trade.

To all the Chumley fans: Disney's cartoon "The Lion Guard" features The African spurred tortoise (Centrochelys sulcata) also called a Sulcata tortoise in the episode "The Wisdom of Kongwe." 🐢🐢🐢 This species of tortoise is native to the Sahara Desert and the Sahel in Africa in the "Pride Lands". This species' status is listed as Vulnerable due to habitat loss and the pet trade. 🐢🐢🐢 Chumley was likely bred from captive parents that were taken from their native habitat. He was found walking around a busy road in the Broad Ripple area in 2003 and brought to the nature center. This species is the 3rd largest tortoise species on the planet. They don't make good pets, but we are happy that Chumley found a safe place to live out his life with us. 🐢🐢🐢 Their continued sale as a pet is not only dangerous for the turtle because most people don't fully understand the needs these animals have, but also because it impacts their populations in their native habitat. 🐢🐢🐢 For those that consider Chumley a friend, you'll want to watch this great episode with your kids so they can see where this species really belong!
Good news for a Thursday. The exotic animal market took a big blow this week when over 1,500 live exotic turtles were rescued from an airport in The Philippines. The animals were found wrapped in duct tape and stuffed into suitcases by customs officials. The fortunate reptiles were almost certainly on the way to their deaths, as turtles are common ingredients in folk medicine. The animals had been smuggled aboard a plane from Hong Kong, and were discovered in four unclaimed pieces of luggage at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila. Three of the species discovered — the star, redfoot and African spurred tortoises — have been classified as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. @onegreenplanet #happydays #stopthetrade #savethetortoises #philippines #onegreenplanet #goodnews #hongkong #illegalpettrade #stopthehunt #tortoise #seacreature #pettrade #victory #freedom #vulnerable #endangered #beconscious #projectarkfoundation #savinganimalsofourworld
Slow Loris’ are a type of primate species in the “Strepsirrhine” group, and are also a #venomous mammal 😱!

The pancake tortoise is usually fast and agile for a tortoise. It has a very thin shell, which allows for a great range of flexibility. This makes the tortoise very agile and fast, meaning it is more likely to flee from danger. They are native to Eastern Africa and are endangered due to the illegal pet trade.

Ball python - Python regius. It's been over 11 years since this little guy was brought into my father's vet clinic back home in Tampa after being found emaciated and chewed up by feral dogs. Most likely an escaped or released pet; little homie nearly didn't make it but, hung in there long enough for the antibiotics and steroids to kick in as well as, get some food/fluids into his system. These days he enjoys crawling through his habitat and my room along with, poking his head out to say hello after naps! Moral of the story is: owning and caring for exotic animals is something many people are fascinated with. The important part of the dream is to make sure you're actually helping an animal in need rather than, propagating the continued breeding and selling of these species. Many animals are in need of rescue and permanent sanctuary right now! Not sure? Just poke around Craigslist for ten minutes; you'll be amazed and hopefully bothered by how many animals are given away daily. Hope this encourages even one person to "Adopt! Don't Shop!" . . . . #ballpython #street #pythonregius #adoptdontshop #reptiles #pettrade #exotic #python #snake #herp #boidae #conservation #animalrescue
I been seeing lot's of this kinds of things Instagram from this particular safari in Thailand. This is just so disturbing and sad.I understand many of these so called Asian "safari" are trafficked and used for entertainment or photo prop for paying tourists.

Imagine these as part of your aquarium display. . . . As awesome as it would be, few may realise that perhaps ocean caught species might not be the best choice for a "glass box" . . . Reasons include: -The distance many of these species travel -Aquaria simply not big enough -Too costly to purchase the numbers of individuals in a school required for social stability/happiness -Ethically, being caught from the wild then sold for entertainment/make the aquarium look good?? . . Ofcourse there might be exceptions . . -small rock pool dwelling fish species that do seem to prefer smaller environments; coral; species of shrimp; crabs; marine snails and algae etc -beneficial research; breeding programs for conservation; fish rehabilitation . . . Just something to think about when purchasing pets for the aquarium 🐟🐳 🐠🐡🦐🦑🦀 . . .

Millions of betta fishes are sold as ornaments in pet stores. Many die during transportation even before they reach pet stores, where they are imprisoned in horrible conditions. Many more die in stores and their bodies are discarded as trash. Bettas in human homes are often treated as nothing more than toys to be collected and to be replaced when they get boring. They are neglected and abused without any laws to protect them. Animals are sentient beings deserving freedom. They are not objects to be bought and sold. Boycott the pet trade.

Happy #TurtleTuesday 🐢 . This is Darwin, a very small green turtle hatchling who was handed into our centre on Saturday 💚 A local man found this little turtle on a road on our Island 😮 we're very glad he/she was found and handed in!! . We have started Darwin in salt water rehabilitation and we are hoping he/she will make a full recovery 💦 As we do not know much about Darwin's past, it is difficult to judge how well he/she will do in rehabilitation, but we hope that we can eventually release Darwin back into the ocean! 💙🌊 . #AtollMarineCentre #AtollVolunteers #GreenTurtle #Hatchling #SaltWaterRehab #MarineBiology #MarineConservation #Turtle #TurtleConservation #TurtleRescue #PetTrade #Wildlife #HawksbillTurtle #TurtleRehabilitation #ProtectTheOcean #OceanLife #Conservation #Naifaru #Nature #LhaviyaniAtoll #Maldives @protect_the_shells

Meet Darwin (thanks @brittany_ru for the name suggestion and to everyone that voted) 🐢 . Darwin is a green sea turtle hatchling and arrived on Saturday, a local man found him/her on the road and we estimate it to be about a month old 🐢 . We are unsure of it's past as when we put it into salt water it didn't respond well to 100% salt so we have started salt water rehabilitation. Doing well now so hopefully soon it will be released! 🐢 🌊 . . . . #saltwaterrehab #greenturtle #marinecentre #marineconservation #atollmarinecentre #sayNOtowildpettrade #washedup #atollvolunteers #local #maldives #naifaru #pettrade #cute #savetheoceans #protectmarinelife

#Repost @international_animal_rescue с @get_repost · · · Вчера мы сообщали о спасении 79 медленных лори, жертв торговли экзотическими животными. Пожертвуйте шприц на £ 4 / $ 5: ССЫЛКА НА БИО К счастью, как раз вовремя, дилеры были задержаны областной полицией Маджаленгки и были вынуждены сдать все лори. Они были предназначены для продажи в Китае, где их ждал мир, полный страданий и боли. Наша команда была призвана оценить состояние медленных лори и предоставить им необходимую помощь. Это видео показывает нашу команду в действии, проводящую спасительное лечение. Крупномасштабные спасения, такие как это, показывают, насколько важно бороться с этой жестокой и нелегальной торговлей. Мы благодарны полиции за усердную работу, чтобы поймать этих торговцев до отправки лори. Более строгое соблюдение закона жизненно важно, если у этого вида есть надежда жить в дикой и свободной форме. Мы искренне благодарим всех, кто сделал пожертвование в это время. Десять из лори в настоящее время получают интенсивную терапию в нашем центре на Яве. Лорисы, которые не требуют специального лечения, находятся в ведении лесного департамента в Чиребоне. Пожертвование в размере всего 4 фунтов стерлингов / 5 долларов США предоставит спасительный шприц, полный необходимых лекарств - их можно приобрести в качестве виртуальных подарков на нашем веб-сайте: ССЫЛКА НА БИО! Ваши пожертвования могут помочь спасти жизнь медленных лори. Большое спасибо за вашу преданную поддержку. #animalrescue #charity #slowloris #rescue #charitytuesday #saveanimals #animalabuse #animals #pets #pettrade #illegal # police
#Repost @international_animal_rescue with @get_repost ・・・ Yesterday we reported on the rescue of 79 slow lorises, victims of the exotic pet trade. Donate a £4/$5 syringe: LINK IN BIO Thankfully, just in time, the dealers were caught by the Majalengka Regional Police, and were forced to surrender all of the lorises. They had been destined to be sold in China, where a world full of suffering and pain awaited them. Our team were called upon to assess the condition of the slow lorises and provide them with the care that was desperately needed. This video shows our team in action, carrying out life-saving treatment. Large scale rescues such as this show just how important it is to crack down on this cruel and illegal trade. We are grateful to the police for working hard to catch these dealers before the lorises were shipped. Stricter law enforcement is vital if this species is to have any hope of living wild and free. Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has made a donation at this time. Ten of the lorises are currently receiving specialist intensive care at our centre in Java. The lorises that do not require specialist treatment are being cared for by the forestry department in Cirebon. A donation of just £4/$5 would provide a life-saving syringe full of essential medication – these can be purchased as virtual gifts on our website: LINK IN BIO! Your donations can help save slow lorises’ lives. Thank you very much for your dedicated support. #animalrescue #charity #slowloris #rescue #charitytuesday #saveanimals #animalabuse #animals #pets #pettrade #illegal #police

White lions, are not albino. They are “leucistic”, which means they have a recessive mutation of genes which cause their coats to be white to blonde-rather than tawny. A cub is born white only if both of its parents carry the recessive ‘white’ gene. As a result, there are instances where there will be a mix of classic tawny lion cubs and white lion cubs born in the same litter. They also can have blue eyes. White lions once roamed wild in the Timbavati area of South Africa-where they were first spotted. Their presence spans throughout the cultural history of the Sepedi and Tsonga communities who revered the white lion and considered it sacred; ‘divine, and sent from above.’ But, decades of trophy hunting first started by Europeans completely wiped out the white lion wild gene pool. They were also put in zoos, and bred in captivity, where today they are still bred, put in canned hunts, and cute blue eyed cubs put in petting zoos. The white lion has successfully been reintroduced into areas of the wilds of Kruger National Park and the Timbavati region. But, unless we protect these animals on a global scale, and change their status to ‘divine, revered and protected’ history will repeat itself over and over and over; and eventually, we will lose them. You can make a difference. Put pressure on exploitive wildlife places. Let your voices be heard. We all can make a positive difference. #wildlifeconservation #pettrade #beautifulcreatures #whitelion #bigcatsofinstagram #lions #animals #wildlifephotography #animalelite #wildlifeonearth #allnatureshots #canon #allnatureshots #southafrica @ilcp_photographers @bbcearth @discoverwildlife @wildlifeplanet @instanaturefriends @animalelite @natgeo @everydayextinction
Us presentem a la Ka, una serp del blat de moro (Pantherophis guttatus). Va arribar al centre de la mà del seu propietari que ja no se'n podia fer càrrec. Es tracta d'una espècie nord-americana inofensiva, amb gran presència al mercat de mascotes i de les que presenta un major nombre d'abandonaments. Abans de buscar una mascota, hauríem de pensar que és el millor per ella. No per ser socialment inacceptats, deixen de ser animals meravellosos. La Ka ha estat afortunada, ja que al GRENP ha trobat una casa i ajuda a fer que la gent perdi la por i aprengui a tractar amb aquests animals. A poc a poc us anirem presentant els companys de la Ka. #ka #snake #snakes #serps #serp #serpientes #serpiente #mascotas #abandono #abandonado #abandonat #pets #pettrade #pet #savethesnakes #educacionambiental #educacioambiental #environmentaleducation #wildlife #exoticspecies #exotic #grenp
#Repost @kaigner • • • • • This is an old one. Taken a long time ago, when I thought little of conservation, of captive wildlife, canned hunting, wildlife trade; and all the terrible things we humans do to nature and it’s treasures. . I wanted to do a story on white lions…because I thought they were cool. I went to this “sanctuary” to see for myself, and photograph. It was an eye opener—one of many. It was one of the first times I realized animals were commodities. After that, I learned to question everything. Do your research before you ever give money to places that fein ‘volunteer programs,’ and conservation programs; and then in the same breath put baby animals on display for petting. Where do you think those animals come from? White lion cubs are not “orphaned cubs from the wild,” and they do not get “released back into the wild.” Ever. Don’t let your human emotion betray your smarts….ask questions. Look further. Know the facts. Year old lions that have been hand raised, habituated to humans and used for petting creches, CAN NOT BE RELEASED into the wild. They are a danger to themselves, and to humans—because they have learned not to fear humans. These animals live their lives in captivity, they make people money, and many times, once they are no longer cute and fuzzy and touchable—no longer brining in money-they are used in canned hunts. . I don’t know what ever came of this little guy other than he ended up on the cover of the magazine. My heart breaks wondering what might have happened to him, but I owe him gratitude and many thanks—my curiosity to find out about him, led me to learn things that I otherwise would never have known, and I would not be where I am today, knee deep trying to make pictures that somehow matter, and somehow get people to question, care, and change their habits. #wildlifeconservation #whitelion #lions #bigcats #pettrade #beautifulcreatures #bancannedhunting #wildlifephotography #canon #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #discoverwildlife #instanaturefriends #wildlifeonearth #allnatureshots @natgeo @ilcp_photographers @bbcearth @wildlifeplanet @instanaturefriends @wildlifeonearth @animalelite @discoverwildlife @bi

Took the Biscuit Wagon on a little road trip today to see if we could sniff out any new products to tempt you with, at the pet industry trade show. There were lots and lots of rawhide type chews and treats which are mass produced far far away...that aren’t compatible with our ethos. We also found some dog food made from insects....yes, insects!! Could be the next big thing, who knows!? But we did place an order for something interesting and new that we’re looking forward to trialling on our stand at Crufts. So watch this space! 😉
