Mahogany gliders may look like squirrels, but they’re actually possums! They have hand-like feet, equipped with opposable thumbs– a very useful feature for an animal with such a unique mode of locomotion. To get from one tree to the next, these little marsupials glide through the air using the membranes that stretch from their front legs to their back legs. They tend to sleep and rear their young in dens inside the hollows of large eucalyptus trees. Because mahogany gliders feed on nectar, pollen and sap, they are extremely important pollinators within their ecosystems. By transporting pollen throughout their habitats, they help to perpetuate the production of seeds and play a big part in maintaining the forests they live in. Because they are so elusive it’s difficult to study mahogany gliders, but biologists have found that their populations are diminishing rapidly. These adorable pollinators are suffering from immense habitat loss due to the clearing of forests for agriculture in Australia. Though they are protected by Australian law, most populations do not exist on protected lands. Check out @natgeo to see a close-up portrait of this glider.

Photo by @BrianSkerry Tomorrow, April 10th, I will be doing an Instagram Live event at 12pm EST. I will be at the headquarters of the @conservationlawfoundation and talking about the plight of the North Atlantic Right Whale – a species on the brink of extinction. I’ll be joining Dr. Scott Kraus with the @newenglandaquarium , a leading right whale researcher working on solutions to save this species. Please check out this event here on my Instagram feed! This photo shows a Southern Right Whale hovering inches above the sea floor in New Zealand’s sub-antarctic waters. About a million years ago there was once species of Right Whale on Earth. But as land masses moved and oceans became separated, the right whales became separated too. Both species were hunted to the brink of extinction by early whalers, but the Southern Right Whales recovered better following protection, because they live further away from industrialization. The North Atlantic Right Whales are urban animals and live from Canada’s Bay of Fundy to Florida. In these regions they become entangled in fishing gear and often die. They also get hit by ships. Last year (2017) 17 North Atlantic Right Whales were lost. Learn more about these amazing animals and how we can save them – here on my Instagram Live event on Tuesday at 12pm EST! #rightwhales #endangeredspecies #extinction #whales A post shared by Brian Skerry (@brianskerry) on

The flamingo is finished! ?? I’m quite happy with how the beak turned out, not so much with the feathers. And I also tried a new paper, not sure what I think about it yet though. I definitely need to work with it a little longer, but at least I don’t hate it ? #art #drawing #bird #flamingo #pink #coloredpencil #polychomos #fabercastell #prismacolor #cansonpaper . . . #artacademy @art.academy #wolrdofpencils #young_artists_help #artfeaturehelp #arts_help #cp_art #coloredpencil_art_ #giveartavoice #art_4share #art___share #artutilities #artsy_nights #drawing_expression #hypnotizing_arts @hypnotizing_arts #arts_moonlight @arts_moonlight
