The Gaiety theatre in Shimla is an impressive case of preserving heritage structures for contemporary use. The complex is over 130 years old and one part of it is still used as a performance venue. Several leading artistes from film and theatre have performed here over the years. Another part of the complex is a thriving art gallery where contemporary artistes showcase their works to this day.

This gorgeous Pig Nosed Turtle will be living at WILD from now on, and for now is in our Monster 2K tank. He has settled in nicely with the space and aquascape. He's been enjoying lots of fruit. 🐢 #WILD #adventure #Australia #nature #turtle #dive #pond #tank #frt #flyriver #pignose #turtles #tortoise #iliketurtles #water #aquarium #aquascape #river #NT #NSW #Sydney #wildlife #wildspec #conservation #animals #live

This is Suni on your right next to Zambezi. Suni was rescued in 2012 after her mother had been killed by poachers. Unfortunately Suni had also been injured during the attack and therefore had problems with her leg which is the reason for the metal boot. Suni was very much cared for by the keepers and a strong bond was formed between them however unfortunately Suni’s leg was infected and she had to be put to sleep in order to stop her from suffering. 📷~ @andrewsilentwildlife @game_rangers_international #elephants #conservation #travel #GRI #DSWF #Africa #zambia
A huge thank you to Turtle Cove Wildlife Sanctuary for the generous donation of a Pig Nosed Turtle to WILD! We'll be using this fantastic animal to raise awareness for all freshwater turtle species that are facing decline and educating a broader audience on the issues our turtles face. #WILD #adventure #Australia #nature #turtle #dive #pond #tank #frt #flyriver #pignose #turtles #tortoise #iliketurtles #water #aquarium #aquascape #river #NT #NSW #Sydney #wildlife #wildspec #conservation

#didyouknow that there are many theories why mobula rays are leaping out of the water! Those jumps could help rays to get rid of parasites that made them suffer. By doing big leaps, schools of rays may communicate with isolated individual trying to indicate their location in order to help them to join the group. Indeed, by jumping all together, rays produce a sound perceptible from miles away. Others have another theory. Rays could congregate and jump to seduce their partner .

So if these creatures are so fascinating, strong, and unique from their other bird counterparts then why are their numbers dwindling and why does it always seem that humans are the ones to blame? If we can come together and protect the Ostrich and other species through support, trust, partnership and conservation, and other programs locally and internationally we might just have a chance to buy a little more time on this planet we call home...TUNZA!

Regrann from @natgeo - Video by @ChristineEckstrom When you enter the nursery at the Lola ya Bonobo sanctuary in the Congo you immediately become a playmate for young bonobos, who wreak havoc with visitors. They’re strong, fast and skilled pickpockets too. What happened to those glasses I had in my pocket when I arrived? Hard to believe that these little rascals arrived at Lola as traumatized orphans who lost their mothers due to the insidious effects of the bushmeat and pet trade. Loving care from a team of surrogate human mothers gives them a new lease on life. Lola is the only place in the Congo—and the world— that is dedicated 100% to bonobos and their care. Check them out @LolayaBonobo and give them your support. And follow us @FransLanting , @ChristineEckstrom and @Ashley_Judd as we dive deeper into the world of bonobos and the people who care about them. @natgeo @natgeotravel @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @bonobodotorg #Bonobos #Bonobo #Apes #Naturelovers #Conservation #Wildlifephotography - #regrann

The beautiful Jurassic coast of Dorset is home to many a sight of beauty. Candy floss stalked sea thrift sets a perfect foreground to this secret cove at Worbarrow Bay in the lost village of Tynham, taken couched in terms of doing your bit for the war effort and with false promise of return towards the end of the second world war. The villagers left in good faith, never to be allowed to return to their precious homes. Conversely, because of the continued safe guardianship of the MOD, Tynham is uniquely preserved and has become a safe sanctuary for British wildlife, no harsh agricultural practises means no chemicals or pollutants. No housing developments means this unique village, frozen in time is unspoilt. Tynham is open to the public and well worth a visit. For me, I love to spot the wildlife. Some of which I will show in the next posts. #tynhamvillage #dorset #dorsetcoast #dorsetwalks #dorsetwildlife #jurassicworld #jurassicpark #jurassiccoast #dorsetlife #wildflowers #seathrift #entomology #family #daysout #lulworth #conservation #beachday
Simon's Town looks like this today, but sounds like baboon central. A mother holding a baby just casually walked into our kitchen. Thank heavens for @baboonmatters , who've negotiated a manageable human-wildlife coexistence. Not easy in our human-centric world.

GUESS WHAT GUYS? After pestering my humans for a long time, they have finally agreed to take me on another trip. We decided on Kangaroo Island..... I would have preferred Shark Bay (I don’t know why 🤷🏽‍♀️), but they said “it had to be close to home 🙄”, oh and because they are busy they said they have to work on their PhD while there (lucky our Airbnb has wifi), but they promised lots of adventuring will also be happening!

#Repost @natgeo ・・・ Photo by @amivitale. Twelve year old mother giant panda, Si Xue explores her enclosure at the Wolong China Conservation & Research Center for the Giant Panda in Sichuan Province, China. Because of their low-energy diet, pandas avoid stressful situations and exertion. It’s hard to imagine, but these animals were once as mythical and elusive as Bigfoot. They have been around for millions of years, but were only made known to the western world within the last century. The first panda was captured alive only in 1936. After years of research, scientists have learned how to successfully breed pandas in captivity. With an adult population estimated at more than 1,864 wild pandas and 500 captive pandas, they have been upgraded from endangered to threatened. In a region where bad environmental news is common, China is on its way to successfully saving its most famous ambassador. I have recently published my new book, Panda Love, featuring my long-term panda work made on assignment for National Geographic.

UNESCO condemns killing of rangers protecting mountain gorillas at renowned DR Congo wildlife park The lives of six guards and their driver were taken Monday during an attack on the Congolese Institute for Nature Conservation in the Virunga Park, a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage site in the Democratic Republic of the Congo – drawing condemnation from the UN agency. “I condemn this deadly attack on six guards of the Virunga National Park and their driver,” said Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO, on Wednesday. “I call on the Democratic Republic of the Congo to take all the necessary legal measures to put an end to these repetitive attacks,” added. The Director-General paid tribute to the courage of the guards who risk their lives to ensure the protection of this heritage. Since 1996, attacks in the Virunga National Park have claimed over 175 victims, UNESCO said. This marks the third attack this year against the staff of the Congolese Institute for Nature Conservation in the Virunga Park and follows similar acts on other World Heritage sites in the country, namely in Dja and Sangha Tri-National. The Director-General called on the international community to help the Institute ensure the safety of local people and staff. With the support of the European Union, UNESCO has, for several years, been investing in strengthening human capacity and resources of World Heritage Sites in the countries of central Africa that are facing security challenges. . . #unesco #worldcup #world #worldwide #worldmusic #gorilla #orangutan #fresh #park #unicef #wildanimals #wild #wildlife #rampage #national #nationalpark #monkey #monk #mountain #mount #jungle #forest #godzilla #ape #therock #heritage #mommy #mamma #conservation #leonardodicaprio
