The Project

Far Far away, behind the mountains of the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and the Virunga Mountains in the heart of Uganda, the idea for Animals Around The Globe came to life. A place, where you can get inspired about the most spectacular animal experiences around the globe. Our founders had the vision to share their animal encounters and create a community of animal enthusiasts and nature lovers. Have a look at our free newsletter and blog, where we tell you everything about the globe’s most fascinating animal experiences and where to find them! Welcome to Animals Around The Globe!

ORANGUTANS 🦧 have the ability to learn 📖 sign language and even to make tools 🛠 🤩 In the first picture our friend Orra the orangutan observes our #humanfriends Thanks to @orangutan_trekking for these amazing pictures 💚💛 #orangutans are considered one ☝️ of the world's smartest 🤓primates.

RHINOS 🦏 belong to the ‘OLD ONES’ on our planet 🌍 let’s help #rhinoconservation 😊such as the @olpejeta 🥰 ☀️ thanks @amivitale for this amazing pic!! #rhinoafrica #kenyasafari Just like elephants 🐘 and hippos 🦛 they are the surviving representatives of a group of animals that was once very species-rich 👍👍 and diverse: the megaherbivores, or large herbivores. 🧐 ARE RHINOS ENDANGERED?? #rhinolove #rhinosofinstagram #stoppoachers #stoppoachingrhinos 🚫🛑 Unfortunately, for 100 grams of the rare horn 🦏 you get 6000 US 💴 dollars. An average horn weighing three kilos brings in 180,000 US dollars. This makes the keratin horn more expensive than gold ‼️💰💸‼️A lucrative business for poachers and smugglers. #seekenya #kenyanphotographer The scary 😱 thing is that in my lifetime, 95 percent 🚨of the world’s rhinos have been killed. #markcarwardine Let’s spread our excitement 🤩 for rhinos around the globe 🗺 and help at least the last populations 😔of rhinos are going to survive. 💪 Follow the below link to get a sneak peak showing a map where rhinos live on our planet 🌍 and how they are living! 🦏❤️ https://www.animalsaroundtheglobe.com/see-rhinos/ 🦏❤️ #animalencounter #animalloversunite #animalsaroundtheworld #animalsaroundtheglobe
ONE of the most PRECIOUS 💎 places on our planet 🌎 hundreds of #hammerheadsharks 🔨🦈 come together at 🏝 @bahamas #bahamas🌴 Thanks @caymanjason for this amazing picture!! 📸 ⠀ How do we protect 👍😊the Bahamas #hammerheadshark ? One way they're doing it is by searching 🔎 for where hammerhead sharks have their #sharkbaby 👶(called pups). Past studies have documented where and why some of the region's hammerhead populations migrate, but scientists👩‍🔬 👨‍🔬 have been struggling with one mystery—where the females that live around the Bahamas's Islands 🌴 go to have their pups. Islands have some of the world's highest concentrations of sharks 🦈 meaning the pregnant females that live there contribute to the population of the species overall. ⠀ Why is it important to protect #sharks🦈 ? #lovesharks ⠀ According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, the scalloped hammerhead species in and around the Bahamas 🏝 is endangered. ‼️The species falls prey to the lucrative shark fin trade, and many end up killed 📛📛as unwanted bycatch by fishermen.⚠ 🎣 ⠀ #sharkprotection #animalencounter #animalloversunite #sharkdive #animalsaroundtheworld #animalsaroundtheglobe
