Giving Some Love To Awwdorable Endangered Numbats

There are so many amazing animals out there that we don't know about. Rare and special creatures that, as animal lovers, we wish we knew more about. One of them is the Numbat. Numbats are insectivorous marsupials, they're adorable, they're fluffy, they looks almost mythical, and there are only about 1000 of them left in the world. 

They're an endangered animal in need of help, and we think one of the best ways to help them is to spread awareness about them and show people pictures of how incredibly adorable they are. Because no one can withstand their cuteness. Another incredible way to help is to read up about them and consider donating at Project Numbat. But for now, let's take a look at how amazing they are

Precious And Awwdorable Spotted-Tail Quolls

Have you ever heard of the spotted-tail tiger quoll? Well, if you haven't, you're about to fall in love with them. They are so cute and criminally underrated and deserving of love. These cutie patooties are the second largest extant carnivorous marsupial, which, in simple words, means that they're tiny. 

Of course, you know why that's important information - tiny animals are extra cute animals and you will extra love them for it. They're also endangered, so it's all the more important to bring attention to them and their situation, and what's a better way of bringing awareness about them than fawning over their cuteness

Endangered Javan Rhino Was Spotted Taking a Mud Bath in Indonesia

Indonesia's environment minister shared a video of a rare Javan rhinoceros taking a mud bath in Ujung Kulon National Park. 

It's believed there are just 72 of the animal left in the world.

The minister who shared the video, Siti Nurbaya Bakar, wrote that the rhinoceros had been identified as a 7-year-old male.

Listed as "critically endangered" on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) red list, the Javan rhinoceros is found only in the Ujung Kulon National Park. Forest rangers have been guarding the national park to prevent poachers from killing rhinos and removing their horns, which can fetch huge sums of money on the black market.

Siti also explained that rhinoceros take mud baths to protect their skin from sunburn, insect bites and other parasites as well as to maintain their skin's moisture. Mud baths also help rhinoceros cool down and fulfill their mineral needs. Rhinoceros could take mud baths twice a day, with each session taking up to three hours, Siti added.

Brilliant Campaign Features Images of Endangered Species Made Of Pixels to Show How Many Are Left

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) created back in 2008 A jaw-dropping campaign featuring several pixelated images of endangered animal species. Initially, as the photos look blurry, you wonder what is going on, as if a mistake has happened. Upon closer look, you realize that the pixels represent the number of species that are currently alive — the blurrier the image, the fewer the numbers. It's a heart-breaking yet fantastic campaign that brings awareness to the endangered species problem. Now, a follow-up project by JJSmooth44 has emerged, where the artist's work is based on the WWF campaign, and it's as impressive as the original.

He is over 100 years old, weighs about 175 pounds, is nearly 35 inches long, five feet tall, and the ladies love him. His name is Diego. Diego the Chelonoidis hoodensis Galapagos giant tortoise.



According to Washington Tapia, a tortoise preservation specialist at Galapagos National Park, Diego "has fathered an estimated 800 offspring, almost single-handedly rebuilding the species' population--and saving it from extinction--on their native island, Espanola, the southernmost in the Galapagos Archipelago."

"Around 50 years ago, there were only two males and 12 females of Diego's species alive on Espanola, and they were too spread out to reproduce."

Six years ago, they did a genetic study and discovered that Diego was the father of nearly 40 percent of the offspring released into the wild on Espanola, thereby doing more parenting than any other turtle to repopulate the species.





"He's a very sexually active male reproducer. He's contributed enormously to repopulating the island," said Tapia.




"Rawr, damn straight," replied Diego.
