Best known for its oversized bill, the keel-billed toucan is a large bird with black plumage and a bright yellow throat and cheeks. Its light green, banana-shaped bill is splashed with orange and tipped with red and blue, and can grow to be a third of the size of the toucan’s body. Though cumbersome looking, the bill is actually quite light because it is made of protein and supported by hollow bones. Click to learn more about these colorful birds!

The red-eyed tree frog's eyes are an example of a defense mechanism called "startle coloration." When the frog closes its eyes, its green eyelids let it blend in with the leafy environment.

Bees keep Earth thriving—pollinating the trees and flowers that provide habitat for wildlife, and the food we eat. More than 75% of the world’s food crops depend on them. Yet bees are vanishing due to harmful agricultural practices, such as the overuse of pesticides. We work with farmers around the world on more sustainable growing methods that support the bee-boosting biodiversity we all depend on. Photo by Sergio Izquierdo.
