Swamp Sparrow (Melospiza Georgiana) Any wetland, swamp, or mash soundtrack wouldn’t be complete without the song of these birds. Swamp Sparrows only nest in wetlands but a wetland doesn’t have be a massive sprawling place it can be relatively small area! They eat a variety of insects and plant matter they actually have longer legs than other members of its genus for wading in shallow water and they will even stick their heads underwater. Plus isn’t this little one just so cute?? #birdsorbust #swampsparrow #birds #birdphotography #sparrow #sparrows #sparrowsofinstagram #nature #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #wildlife #conservation #cornelllabofornithology #audubon #audubon_sc #scwildlife #winterbirds #canon #tamron
Here is a transient coyote, I believe, getting his courage up to eat the Canada goose (of my last post), which had been left behind by the resident coyote pack a few nights prior. He has to be careful not to dig right in to a cached food source, because the "owners" may be around the corner and ready to fend him off. ... First, he comes by very cautiously, sniffing the ground to investigate, but not going up to the carcass.  Two hours later, he comes back more confidently and makes his way up to it, but doesn't eat.  Six hours after that, he is more confident still, and he helps himself, beginning with the head and neck (which make quite a crunch - sound up to hear). ... Presumably in between videos he has explored the surrounding area well enough to feel assured that the resident pack is elsewhere. . #trailcam #trailcamology #animalbehavior #animals #wildlife #nature #animaltracking #transientcoyote #canadagoose #ethology #ecology #naturalhistory #predator #residentpack #wildlife_seekers #wildlifeaddicts #naturevideos #wildlifevideos #intonature #intothewoods #coyote #canislatrans #wildlifeonearth #lifeonearth #ilovenature #she_explores #hiking #bethechange #conservation #landconservation

Demain je me débarrasse (enfin) de mes amphibiens invasifs, il était temps 🐸 J'avais dû rendre un rapport sur les coûts et l'éradication des amphibiens invasifs avant le congé de Noël et demain on présente notre travail devant le reste de la classe puis on se pose des questions (table ronde) sur nos sujets respectifs 😬 En plus du sujet de notre rapport on a dû choisir une espèce invasive et la présenter brièvement: j'ai pris Litoria cycloryncha, vous connaissez? Non? C'est normal: la bestiole vient d'Australie et commence seulement son invasion (en Australie aussi) donc c'est le moment de mettre en œuvre des stratégies pour la stopper 😀 #study #student #studygram #studymotivation #exam #examen #amphibien #amphibian #frog #espèceinvasive #invasivespecies #hylidae #ecologie #ecology #conservation #biologie #biology #zoologie #zoology #science #université #university #love #réalisersesrêves

Usually my images don’t really require a description (I hope), but this abstract shot of a resident killer whale might need one. Allow your eyes to adjust. That is the giant dorsal fin of a male orca and the breath from its blowhole, sometimes known as ‘sea smoke’. In the background, seaweed and rocks. Why was it so close to the surface? Killer whales are incredible hunters, and this male was using the rocks to create waves and smash salmon against them, stunning the fish in doing so. This is the one and only time I’ve seen orcas hunt like this. In honour of these intelligent cetaceans and all other marine life, let’s keep our oceans clean. - - - #killerwhale #orca #salmon #turningthetide #instagood
Male ring tailed lemurs put smells, from glands in their bottoms, on their tail and wave it at rivals. It’s known as ‘stink fighting’! Ring tailed lemurs are endangered in the wild due to habitat loss. #ringtailedlemur #lemur #zoo #longleat #photography #endagered #conservation

It doesn’t matter how many times I have seen a mother sea turtle lay her clutch and head back to the ocean. 100 MILLION YEARS!!! That’s how long this process had been taking place! Every time brings a new sense of appreciation and gratitude. 1) Conservation is so important for sea turtles and all life forms on Mother Earth 🌎 2) I’m lucky enough to live out my dharma and experience this first hand. Thank you momma Olive Ridley for this precious experience.

#keepemwetwednesday 1/16/19. Matt “Kalani” Pitts @lifeofpittsy knows that large Pelagic’s have a difficult time surviving when removed from the water for pictures prior to release. He also knows it’s a Federal Fisheries violation to do so in the #atlanticocean .Matt always puts his #ethics , #integrity & #character first & has a tremendous respect for our resources. He knows that the fish is more important than any picture or self promotion.

Many debate the origin of the phrase, "a picture is worth a thousand words." Some believe Confucius coined it, others Napoleon, and perhaps the saying was simply born and evolved on the pages of American Newspapers in the 19th and 20th centuries. Regardless of who said it first, when and where he or she was very wise fore the saying stands true even today as we look at before and after photos of our conservation and restoration work at the Yarmouth New Church. #WednesdayWisdom #WednesdayWonder #BeforeAndAfter #SacredArt #Restoration #Conservation #WaterDamage #PerfectingPreservation #SacredSpaces #DecorativeArt
The partial federal government shutdown continues and drags down meaningful legislation with it. — It’s time for our members of Congress to open the government and consider bipartisan legislation, including the public lands package that permanently reauthorizes LWCF. — In this article (link in bio), BHA’s Julia Peebles breaks down the critical provisions in the lands package.

An adult Polar Bear peeks over a rise out of curiosity in its ever constant search for food. The chief threat to the polar bear is the loss of its sea ice habitat due to climate change. As suggested by its specific scientific name (Ursus maritimus), the polar bear is actually a marine mammal that spends far more time at sea than it does on land. It's on the Arctic ice that the polar bear makes its living searching for its primary prey items - seals, which is why climate change is such a serious threat to its well-being. The retreat of ice has implications beyond the obvious habitat loss. Remaining ice is farther from shore, making it less accessible. After each summer, the trend seen in the Arctic is for sea ice to be farther from shore, making it necessary for polar bears to swim increasingly long distances from shore to reach the ice. Worse, the last remaining sea ice is over deep and unproductive waters that yield less prey. The larger gap of open water between the ice and land also contributes to rougher wave conditions, making the bears’ swim from shore to sea ice more hazardous. In 2004, biologists discovered four drowned polar bears in the Beaufort Sea. Never before observed, biologists attributed the drowning to a combination of retreating ice and rougher seas. As a result of rapid ice melt in 2011, a female polar bear reportedly swam for nine days nonstop across the Beaufort Sea before reaching an ice floe, costing her 22 percent of her weight and her cub. As climate change melts sea ice, the U.S. Geological Survey projects that two thirds of polar bears will disappear by 2050. Pressure must be put on our policy makers to address to this critically important issue. Its not just the polar bears that will be adversely affected, but rather the entire world ecosystem. . . . . . . . #polarbear #ANWR #alaska #bear #polarbears #animals #nature #bears #arctic #svalbard #animal #arcticwildlife #wildlife #climatechange #wildlifephotography #natgeopics #zoo #wildaid #canada #naturephotography #polarbearsinternational #wwf #wild #conservation #nationalgeographic #whitebear #photography #canonusa #picoftheday
Here are two Iguanas captured in surveys on Dominica. One is the endemic Lesser Antillean Iguana and the other, an invasive Green Iguana, can you spot the differences? List them in the comments section! Thijs van den Burg is currently in Dominica assessing the population of Lesser Antillean Iguanas, (Iguana delicatissima). After the Hurricanes of 2017 Green Iguanas, (Iguana iguana), were found on Dominica for the first time. They are now invasive and hybridizing with Lesser Antilles Iguanas, threatening the integrity of that population.

Mountain Gorillas, their gene is so close to us, we share 98% of the gene! It is only that 2% that separate us. As I watched them in the mountain of Rwanda, I was truly touched and emotional. They were as intelligent as us, but they don’t ha be “extra intelligence” such as greed and rage and all that negative stuff. They were gentle, peaceful and powerful. Much more powerful than us, humans. They are strong but not violent nor dangerous to humans in their own nature. They let us sit and just be present with them. As he passed right next to me, followed by a young mother and a baby, it was one of the most powerful moment in life! Once they used to thrive in the mountains, now they are squeezed in the small area because of human activity. They are losing their habitat because of us. They are also poached. Human activity is driving them to face extinction. No, we shall not point finger at the locals only. It’s not the problem only with locals, it’s the system/culture human created all over the world. It’s all connected. How we abuse use of natural resources, abuse our land, forgetting to respect nature, forgot the way to co-exist with nature. Can we keep going? No. It’s not sustainable for animals nor for humans ourselves. We must re-connect with nature, we must re-learn to co-exist with nature. We must abandon our greed. We must find a new sustainable lifestyle. Information is everywhere nowadays. Just start looking up, search, educate ourselves. It’s the start. And every big things have small start. It starts here, right now. Graphite pencil on paper Nozomi Takeyabu 2017 ゴリラ、顔を初めて描いた。アフリカのルワンダの山奥まで入って彼らに会いに行った。私達の存在を認めて一緒にその場をシェアしてくれた彼らには危険を感じたことはかけらもなかった。ただ一緒にいさせてくれた、その時間は言葉にならないほど感動した。 ゴリラは人間と98%遺伝子が同じ限りなく近い動物。人間のせいで殺され、どんどん住む場所を失っていく彼らは絶滅危機に追いやられていく。アフリカの問題だけではなく人間たち全ての問題であることを忘れてはいけない。自然と共存出来る生活作りを始めなければいけない。昔は当たり前だったはずの人間の生活。新たな形で再出発しなければ人間も動物もこのままでは生きていけない。どうすればいいのかという情報はいっぱいあります。1日五分でもいいので時間を作って調べてみてほしい。大きな変化は私達一人一人の気付きと小さな変化から始まるのだから。 #ゴリラ #gorilla #wildlife #wildlifeart #art #artist #conservation #drawing #inspire #naturelovers #野生動物 #ルワンダ #野生動物保護 #環境保護 #自然保護 #絵 #絵描き

Yesterday we released our beloved Crookshanks! She has been featured in our previous posts but as a reminder, in early August she was found in Matheson Hammock Park with a bad fishing line entanglement on her left flipper. We transported her to @gumbolimbonaturecenter where they were able to save most of her flipper and successfully rehabilitate her. Yesterday she went home and we couldn’t be happier! Best of luck Crookshanks!!! • • *All sea turtle activities are conducted by authorized personnel under the FWC permit MTP-017* • • • #seaturtles #rehabilitate #rehabilitateandrelease #saveouroceans #saveourseas #saveourseaturtles #conservation
pictured: is the Na’ Pali Coastline. Na’ Pali means “the cliffs” in Hawaiian as some of its peaks reach heights of 4,000 ft. These cliffs and valleys used to be home to people of Polynesian & Tahitian decent, who arrived on the island in 1,200 A.D. The influences of these early became a basis for Hawaiian culture. The cliffs served as natural fortresses as an estimated few thousand people nestled their communities within the valleys. Living and trading in the Na Pali until it was “discovered” in 1778 by Captain Cook. A discovering that led to an influx of westerners that would ban many Hawaiian traditions. Disease brought over to this island depleted the native populations and eventually the draw of an easier life out side of the valley, Na Pali began to empty out. Now, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations, offering a glimpse into how grand life must have felt living within those valleys. Last year, the island, more specifically this section of the island suffered an immense down pour of rain that caused many members of the North Shore to lose their homes (as they floated into the ocean or crumbled as the overly saturated soil gave way beneath them), belongings, and members of their community. Beyond the unfortunate events due to our rapidly changing climate, is the story of how this community is building back up. We have a lot to learn from communities like this. 2019 will begin to usher in more learning and listening from rural communities as they known much more about taking care of this earth than we do. 🙏🏾

The last night of archery deer season in Missouri I had a doe at 43 yds and I had an adrenaline rush more than I ever had so far shooting my bow. I could barely keep the pins on her. It was so fun. I held on her for just under a min while she moved into the timber. I didn’t let an arrow fly but I still enjoyed every moment! #innerloc #archeryhunting #archeryseason #bowhunting #whatgetsyououtdoors #bowhunter #deerseason #sickforit #iamsportsman #qdma #onxmaps #openeriseverything #mathewsarchery #mathewstriax #openseason #gowhereyoudontbelong #huntress #girlswhohunt #girlshunttoo #womenwhohunt #deerhunting #shehunts #deerseason #whitetailhunting #fieldtofork #conservation #itsinmynature #hunthard #femalehunter #bowhunt #proudhunter

In a litter of tiger cubs there is normally one dominant cub who will look after his other siblings and decides where they should eat, sleep and play. Also by nature tiger cubs are normally playful and will pounce on each other.

Gypsy looked very drained in this photo, as it was taken just a few days in arriving at Co’Lu’Bi. But now she is as strong as ever and looks much better in her face! A lot of love and care can do wonders for orphaned and abused animals! And to be that support to them is the biggest reward we can give back!
