Bean and Adipose investigate their new bigger home.
brazil’s yacare caiman was once hunted to near extinction for its valuable skin, but thanks to a global ban on the trade its home in the pantanal — the world’s largest wetland, situated along along the paraguay river — now supports the world’s largest population of crocodiles. the caiman, however, face new threats: deforestation, dams, tourism, mining and seaport development.
photos by luciano candisani, who notes that the caiman are neither aggressive nor fearful but, for the most part, approachable - especially when busy with the shoal fish see here in the pantanal’s shallow, murky waters.

greenpeace has released photos* taken february 23 and 24, 2014 in central kalimantan province on indonesia’s borneo island — site to some of the most biodiverse ecosystems on the planet — which show the destruction of rainforest home to endangered tigers and orangutans. there has already been an 80 percent loss of habitat in the last twenty years.
greenpeace has laid blame at the feet of procter and gamble, who knowingly purchase palm oil from palm tree plantations grown on the razed land (last photo). the palm oil is used in such products as crest toothpaste, head and shoulders and pantene shampoo, christina aguilera perfume, clairol and cover girl make up and gillette shaving gel.
"the maker of head & shoulders needs to stop bringing rainforest destruction into our showers. it must clean up its act and guarantee its customers that these products are forest friendly," said bustar maitar, head of the indonesian forest campaign at greenpeace international. these sentiments are echoed in a greenpeace media campaign targetting procter and gamble.
indonesia is home to approximately three percent of the world’s forests — which are part of a ring of forests along the equator known as the lungs of the world — yet deforestation in indonesia represents over a third of the total global carbon emissions from deforestation.
