After a 5-month investigation, the cause of death of Vancouver Aquarium’s two belugas, Aurora and Qila, was found to be due to a mysterious toxic substance, passed to them by food, water or human interference.
-
21-year old Qila and 29-year old Aurora died suddenly within 9 days of each other.  The $100,000 investigation involved dozens of veterinary pathologists, toxicologists, genome specialists, medical doctors, and field research scientists but the investigators failed to identify the killer toxin. A reason for this could be that some toxins persist for a limited amount of time in the blood stream, thus are difficult to identify.
-
To protect their three remaining cetaceans and reduce the risk of further infections, Vancouver Aquarium has introduced an enhanced food-screening process, removed vegetation adjacent to the habitat, overhauled mechanical water treatment systems and introduced a new regime of real-time testing for incoming and recirculating water. Additionally, the aquarium has updated security around the habitat to reduce the threat of intentional poisoning, or other criminal behaviour.

Gotta give a huge shoutout to my dad @cooneyworldadventures 
He is the other brain behind 'The Wildlife Defenders Project' I approached him with the idea about 5 or 6 months ago and with enough persistence I finally convinced him to come with me on this adventure. I had no idea what we where getting ourselves into. Camping in the bush during an African rainstorm, being woken up in the night by cape buffalos, flying in a helicopter for the first time, and even experiencing one of the seven wonders in the world along the way. The idea behind our project is to bring awareness to animals affected by human involvement whether that be the trade of body parts, habitat destruction or animals effected by climate change. We believe it's incredibly important to show the human relationship between the crisis and use photography as a way to bring a cinematic feel to photojournalism.

Looking towards Greenwich Point along the shoreline of Tod's Point Beach, we are standing in an intertidal zone.  Over the course of the day the tides fluctuate, creating tidal pools in which marine life such as mussels, clams, and starfish thrive.  However, life is not easy for the marine life in these tidal pools due to wave action, mid day sun with a low tide, predators and water quality.  It is imperative to create and sustain the natural habitats that these resilient species call home.

Long-tailed tits are true masters of nest-building, creating elastic nests that can actually expand to accommodate their growing chicks. They achieve this by delicately weaving spider webs into the ball of feathers, moss and lichen. A larger nest can contain up to 2000 feathers.  #savingparadise

25 APR: With only three of their kind left, the race against time is intensifying to save the northern white rhino species. The last remaining male is the equivalent of one hundred years old, and the final two females have proven to be infertile. Scientists and conservationists are now hoping artificial reproductive techniques, which have never been performed on rhinos, will save the species. But it’s not going to come cheap.

Test yourself and fellow explorers on Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly ethics. This shot is from an OCTA / Trails West / BLM excursion last year, looking for emigrant artifacts along the Emigrant Trail just outside Winnemucca.

At a 1981 concert, Ozzy Osbourne but the head off a bat that a fan threw on stage, and so naturally the new species was named for him. With its wide distribution in the Amazon, its discovered Pedro Peloso believes that it is not in immediate danger of extinction, but this all depends on active conservation efforts to preserve the remaining Amazon. .

R.I.P. BRAVE WARRIOR  2 wildlife rangers shot and killed by poachers in Congo park.  RIP.

Elephant poachers have killed two wildlife #rangers in a shootout in #Garamba National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), reports African Parks, a conservation group that manages ten protected areas across Africa in partnership with governments and local communities.

While out patrolling on April 11, Ranger Joël Meriko Ari and Sergeant Gerome Bolimola Afokao of the #DRC Armed Forces heard gunshots, African Parks reported. The patrol unit followed signs and tracks until they discovered a group of six poachers who were chopping up a freshly slaughtered #elephant carcass.

A shootout followed, in which both Ari and Afokao were fatally shot. There were also casualties among the #poachers, but details were not disclosed.

Ari, 27, leaves behind a wife and two sons, while Afokao leaves behind a wife and nine children.

African Parks said that they had observed “significant poaching activity” during the days preceding the shootout. Aerial surveillance had identified the poachers’ camp, and they had recorded carcasses of nine elephants. “IUCN deplores the deaths of rangers Joël Meriko Ari and Sergent Bolimola Afokao of the Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo…and shares its most profound condolences with their families,” the International Union for #Conservation of Nature said in a statement.

Garamba National Park, located in northeastern DRC, is one of Africa’s older national parks and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is home to the last known wild population of the northern white #rhinos (Ceratotherium simum cottoni), the rare Kordofan #giraffes (Giraffa camelopardalis antiquorum), and elephants — both forest elephants and savanna elephants as well as hybrid of the two.

Garamba — once teeming with #wildlife — is now a hotbed for armed poachers and guerrilla groups seeking #ivory. Story from Wild heart Wildlife Foundation. #whenthebuyingstopsthekillingwilltoo #endangeredspecies #SupportAfricasRangers #UniteTheFight #YouBuyTheyDie

This is the Cora Ball; it copies the structure of coral in order to filter and allow easy water flow. It's job, to filter out microfibers. Microfiber is the BIGGEST ocean pollution, and it comes from our laundry. We're glad to see people tackling this problem and impressed by the people at CoraBall for their innovation. You can learn more about this design at coraball.com
