Do not mess with a bear cub and its mother. This incredible video shot at the Tadoba National Park shows what a momma bear will do to protect her cub. Shot by Akshay Kumar, chief naturalist at Bamboo Forest Safari Lodge in Maharashtra, India, the tiger was apparently after a sloth bear cub when the mother surprised the tiger by showing what she's made of!
Amazing Lemurs: Save Our Species put together this excellent page showing off some super cool facts about lemurs and explaining why they're so important. Check out the guide at SoS's website.
Amazing wildlife photo of the week: Continuing the big cat theme from last week, this super cool photo of a baby cheetah and its mother is just adorable. According to the source, Cheetah cubs have long tall hair that runs from their neck all the way down to the base of their tail, which is called the mantle. The mantle makes a cheetah cub look like a honey badger and makes them blend into tall grass, which helps keep them safe from threats like lions and hyenas. Nature is amazing!
Pepsi is doing the right thing: PepsiCo is cutting business relationships with Indofood Agri Resources (IndoAgri), one of the largest palm oil companies in Indonesia, due to concerns about their labor rights and sustainability practices, according to this statement (PDF). This most certainly isn't the first complaint IndoAgri has received, and their practices don't seem to be getting better. Way to go Pepsi, let's hope others follow suit! Read more at Mongabay.
Lacoste is losing its crocodile logo! IUCN's Save of Species is teaming up with polo-maker Lacoste to honor 10 endangered species. There are a very limited number of shirts available for each; only one for each of the wild animals we believe are left. For example, since we think there are only 350 Sumatran tigers left, there are only 350 of those shirts made. Check out the video here and spread the word on social media with the hashtag #LacosteSaveOurSpecies.
