  • Enjoying a cruisey ride through the meekong river!🐬 The Meekong river is the 12 largest river in the world, flowing high up in the Tibetan Plateau, all the way to the South China Sea. Winding through multiple countries ; China , Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

The Meekong is considered the second most biological diverse river in the world, after the Amazon ! With thousands of plants, fish , animals living within and around its banks.

The Meekong is also one of the last places to view the extremely rare Irrawaddy river dolphins. The dolphins inhabit a stretch of the river between Cambodia and Lao. Just 92 of these dolphins are estimated to exist!

I was lucky enough to venture out on a small boat cruise in the Kratie province of Cambodia to try and get a glimpse at these rare beauty’s. We had been cruising across the river trying to get to the other side for one hour now!! The river is truely huge , I was there in the rainy season and the share volume flowing through this part of the river was intense . If you went over you were going down stream very very quickly. Our guide had taken us to his prime viewing spot he told us. We began to wait, the thing is with with the Irrawaddy dolphins, they only breach the surface partially before diving back below. Spotting them can be rather difficult and timely. But to my luck we found them, we spotted two ! They only briefly pop up in one place , only to reappear somewhere completely different to where you were looking . Making it very hard for a good photo, and for experts to track and identify.

Once believed to be in the thousands , the dolphins of the Meekong river were destroyed by war , hunting and net fishing. However the population is rising and it at its highest in over 20 years! However there population is still very  low and remains well below what is considered safe to ensure the future survival.

  • Shooting wolves actually makes it worse for the elk and livestock. This is behavioral. Wolves like most territorial predators are part of what’s called social disturbance. When they’re killed/ shot, this opens up an entire new hierarchy for the pack (or splits it entirely)in which the younger wolves can suddenly now have breeding rights and are the main hunters. Because they’re young, they’re inexperienced and go for easier targets like livestock and fawns/young elk. For the elk, this is a far worse situation, because now their young/new/healthy population is being targeted instead of what mature, organized  wolf packs target- sick or old bull/cows that then pave the way for a new, healthier, more prolific generation. Same for moose. •
•
And, as quoted by manager for the Center for Biological Diversity, “Published research from Washington States University shows that wolf presence once again, is simply resulting in mule deer and white tail deer using the land differently to keep away from wolves and wolf predation; hunters often interpret the lack of presence of deer or elk in places they used to find them to mean that wolves killed them all but that's not the case; the elk and deer are simply wisely changing where they are hanging out to avoid wolves.” •
•
I’m a carnivore biologist doing research to get to find a solution- a compromise amongst ranchers and hunters and conservationists and biologists. I’ve learned a great deal- I may not agree with hunters or some others but mutual interest in learning from each other is the only way compromise will be reduced- not yelling, not calling names or ignorance. Only then will we figure out how to live with these majestic creatures once again. Visit saveourwolves.org for more info or DM me. 📸: @wolfconservationcenter •

  • The Federal minister who originally sold these permits out in the Bight became the Chair of the oil lobby here in Australia just two weeks after leaving parliament.

Reposted from @fightforthebight -  The election has been said and done and although it's not the result a lot of us were hoping for. Instead of feeling down and giving up on the fight use it as inspiration to research more, learn the facts, spread the facts and shout our message. We need to stand strong and keep up the fight. Go down to the beach and have a surf or swim and take note of how special the ocean is to you. It's so much more than just a place to surf or swim and be active. It's a temple to connect with nature and remain sane! 
It is well worth our time and effort to protect. 
We will win!

  • Stumbled upon a flock of Baudin’s cockatoos yesterday 😍 Sadly their numbers are estimated below 10,000. So it is a privilege to see them enjoying the self at Araluen.

  • Meet our OR-7 wolf 🐺 #stopmotion  #puppet . Oregon wolf OR-7 was the 2nd wild wolf to be given a name. He is an extraordinarily wolf, having traveled further than any other recorded wolf, & appropriately was given the name *Journey* Our short film follows possible events of his life and reveals some unexpected wolf behavior - extrapolated from interviews in documentaries and research. Moreover, I wanted to create a film that everyone could relate to: 💗a film about longing to belong💗 ....
If you love wolves and love making art, I invite you to join me and make art about wolves! ❤️🐺❤️ Check out my earlier posts for ways to contribute your art to this project!And I encourage you to speak for wolves and inspire lawmakers with your art! Wolves have been illegally delisted from the ESA by the Trump administration when only 5000 Grey wolves exist in the US. Here’s the tough stuff that’s so hard for me to share here, and what really breaks my heart, is states like Michigan, Wisconsin, Wyoming, Montana have archaic and outdated laws that REQUIRE wolf hunting. In just one season, 25% of the wolf populations in these states were exterminated since wolves were delisted from #endangeredspecies Protections. Send your art and love to lawmakers and show them how much you care about NOT letting the wolf be hunted to extinction.

  • St Vincent Amazon - Amazona guildingii. One of the most fantastic parrots on the planet, and also, one of the most endangered, unfortunately. The @actp_parrots in partnership with the St Vincent government develops in-situ and ex-situ projects for conservation of this species and has been obtaining excellent results already! #ACTP 🇩🇪
