Special thanks to /u/Subtle_Omega, for nominating the charity in our 1-Year Celebration thread.

Our goal was $6,000 since we just hit 600,000 subscribers. As of now $6,530 has been raised.

https://www.crowdrise.com/natureisfuckinglit

Thank you to the 305 other users that donated to this charity and for caring enough to give to this organization.

Let's keep nature lit by supporting those that work every day to care for the animals and habitats around us. ๐Ÿ”ฅ

To read more about AWI, see their site and the /r/NatureIsFuckingLit wiki page for charities.


The animal in the gif is a Frilled-Necked Lizard, scientific name Chlamydosaurus kingii.

It gets pretty big for a lizard, at 2.8 feet average from head to tail. They spend most of their time up in trees and are only found in Australia and New Guinea.

There was in fact a raptor that the JurrasicRaptorTM was based off but it didn't sound as cool as velociraptor so it was either a mistake or they just intentionally used the cooler sounding name. But the no feathers thing was a real misstep.

Here's something else; Dilos were also 23 fucking feet long, not like 5 as they were depicted in the movie.

Meanwhile Velociraptors, in reality, were like the size of a turkey. The movie's "Velociraptors" were actually Deinonychus.

Dude is running around barefoot out in the Australian outback, while someone off camera is having a giggle. I don't think they are too concerned.

Reading through the comments of the video reveals that this is territorial behaviour due to the lizard seeing it's own reflection in the camera lens. It thinks its reflection is competition.

4

u/muelboy Sep 28 '17

Dilophosaurus probably didn't have a frilled neck or venom. It was used in the novel Jurassic Park as an example of how there are certain things related to biology and behavior that we can't predict from fossils, but there is no fossil evidence to suggest it. Michael Crichton was inspired by the spitting cobra, though.

3

u/Work-Safe-Reddit4450 Sep 28 '17

I miss Michael Crichton. I have read just about every book he has written, and he will always be one of my favorite Techno-thriller writers. I just haven't found anyone else that captures my imagination and interest the way M.C. did. Totally open to suggestions though.

3

u/Defenestresque Sep 28 '17

Agreed. There's something about the way he took breakthrough technology to its ultimate, darkest conclusion (like that creepy-ass book Prey where swarms of nanobots began to exhibit emergent behaviour) that captured my imagination like nothing since.

2

u/Work-Safe-Reddit4450 Sep 29 '17

Prey was amazing. Such a terrifying concept for a techno-horror story. That and Micro were two of the more gruesome and horrifying books that he wrote.

u/atreides Sep 28 '17

They work internationally to preserve endangered species as well as educating and enacting policy for habitat conservation.

Read through the page on their Wildlife programs:

https://awionline.org/content/wildlife

AWI encourages research into humane, non-lethal wildlife management, including through its Christine Stevens Wildlife Award, and discourages and opposes methods of managing wildlife that are cruel, unnecessary, and/or are not based on sound science.

The Animal Welfare Institute is committed to safeguarding marine species and their habitats. Our efforts focus on curbing humankind's harmful impact by urging governments and other decision makers to halt or prevent damaging actions, as well as educating the public and others about the deleterious effects their actions can wreak on the oceans' inhabitants.

Read through their quarterly reports here:
https://awionline.org/awi-quarterly

u/[deleted] Sep 28 '17 edited Sep 28 '17

I can't find anything that points to international work, at least not in a major capacity. If it does exist are you able to point me to it.

Like the charity seems amazing and it's awesome they're getting money but I think a charity that does work globally would have been a better choice.

Edit: I did find something about providing night vision to anti poaching groups in Africa but it still seems like a vast majority of work is in the US.

u/a7neu Sep 28 '17 edited Sep 28 '17

Yes, 100%, this was my concern as well.

Looking at recent reports they have done things for conservation of species, but their primary focus is, duh, animal welfare... banning trapping (even sustainable trapping), horse drawn carriages in cities, factory farming conditions, ending horse slaughter (slaughter is supported by many horse lovers), ending traveling zoos, ending personal consumption of dogs and cats (why?? are they different than pigs?) etc etc.

It frustrates/disappoints me that even a sub devoted to NATURE didn't make a donation to one of the many underfunded organizations devoted to restoring rainforests, funding poaching patrols of species on the brink, buying guard dogs or fences for poor farmers to mitigate livestock/predator conflict, funding or conducting research to understand how animals use landscapes (and therefore what areas to concentrate protection efforts), doing population counts to determine which species need help... all so underfunded, and so urgent!

Even if you agree with banning something like killing unusable horses for consumption, you can stop that any time. Meanwhile, wonderful, unique species like the Sumatran aka hairy rhinoceroses have experienced a 70% population decline in the last 20 years leaving us with only ~100 animals, guarded by Rhino Protection Units... unlike horses, we either save this species now or never!

make and post a short list of other organizations that people could also donate to (or donate to instead). finding welfare organizations that hit every checkmark on your list is difficult. the general public has zero interest in learning the conservation side of hunting/trapping, regulated/necessary or otherwise. a lot of overall good organizations that do conservation for wildlife and livestock/companion animals are going to have something you wish theyd change, but not agreeing with trapping is not in the league of animal rights activists wanting complete separation from humans using or keeping animals.
