Life goal - never take a view like this for granted. I hope the 👵🏼version of myself has the chance to experience these same landscapes, and still has zero chill about it.

For #PollinatorWeek, we had a look at some great pollinator conservation initiatives taking place in Canada. You can help too by planting more native plants in your gardens and communities. Visit  @cwf_fcf for more resources. (Photo from left: Swamp milkweed, tomato plant, strawberry bush)

This afternoon a lioness killed a cow just outside camp, claw marks clearly visible. The herders chased her off but too late. It's the price  Ol Pejeta occasionally pays for having a successful livestock operation along with a wildlife conservation and tourism; also a very lucky lioness because outside of protected and managed conservation areas, she probably wouldn't have made it through the weekend.. #alexhuntersafaris #olpejeta #conservation #friday #betherocknottheroll #earth #life #nature

Park Güell is a friendly reminder that a little bit of green within an urban setting goes a long way.
Preserve and protect the natural surroundings that we are lucky to have. This includes revising personal habits in an effort to save the one earth we occupy. Every second we are losing 1-2 acres of the worlds rainforests...we are not winning.

I really like encountering cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis). They can treat you to one of nature's most spectacular colour ballet, changing from stripes, into dots, into complete camouflage with their environment or even turn fully white. Their curved pupils fits their mysterious look. Normally I catch a glimpse of them and then they move off at great speed. However not this time, this individual stayed alongside me. It did not take long to realise there was something special going on and it was not me. There was actually another individual lingering around, much smaller than this one. This one, I presume a female, could be seen laying eggs into a rock crevice with great precision and care. I spent at least 30 min watching her. That is what I love about nature, if you are patient enough, you get treated to some special scenes.#underwaterphotography #uwphotography #uwpics #scubadiving #scuba #duiken #plongee #marinecritters #macro #wildlife #photooftheday #instagood #padi #ocean #life_animal #instadive #scubashooters #principeisland #saotomeeprincipe #divingphotography #conservation #diving #naturelovers #ilovediving #nature #reef #sepia #ocean #marinebiology #islandlife

Happy Friday! Don't forget, we have 2 Animal Exploration classes this weekend: Saturday, June 24, with Elephants & Sunday, June 25, with Great Apes

Each class is from 10-11am at the Zoo Education Building. Kids can help us build enrichment items for the animals and may even get to see the animal play with your enrichment item in person! Enrichment items help our animals to think, play, and act just like any member of their species would. We could be building/making a variety of items for our animals, so please wear clothes that can get messy!

Specifications for each class:
Age range: 6-11
Class length: 1 hour 
Cost: $20 for non-members, $15 for members 
To reserve your spot, please call 501.661.7229.

Do you know what to do if you come across a swarm of bees? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sarah and her husband Peter started @torontobeerescue in 2012 to fulfil the need for humane honey bee hive removals. They rescue about 30 honey bee swarms and hives a year throughout the Greater Toronto Area.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Toronto Bee Rescue also removes and relocates established honey bee colonies from homes, sheds, and other man-made structures. Once, they had to use a cherry picker to remove a bee colony in the steeple of a church!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After the bees are removed, the honey bees go to their rescue yard where they can keep a close eye on them to make sure that they are happy and healthy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you come across a swarm, Sarah and Peter say BEE CALM. Honey bee swarms are usually docile and temporary. They’re probably just hanging out, waiting to move into their next place. You can also call your local beekeeping association and have a beekeeper remove the bees humanely. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Last week our first cohort of Conservation Fellows concluded their 10-month program with a Boundary Waters adventure. Sofia Lent, Melissa Garcia, Nicholas Nicome, and Eva Garcia paddled, fished, went swimming, and conducted citizen-science water quality monitoring in the wilderness. The Conservation Fellows program is a partnership between high school students of color and the Friends, providing hands on advocacy mentorship and opportunities for cultural exchange. Our fellows this year are just incredible. Check out a few of our trip photos!

While it’s unlikely the petrale sole will ever win a beauty contest, it has won over the hearts and stomachs of many from the Aleutian Islands to Baja and beyond! An important commercial fish species in the U.S. and Canada, the well managed California Groundfish Collective fishery is considered to be the best sourcing option for a sustainable ‘Best Choice’ product with trawl caught petrale sole from British Colombia and other areas of the U.S. West Coast considered to be a ‘Good Alternative’. According to some buyers, the best time to buy petrale is in the winter, when prices are the lowest. Since larger flatfish sell for a premium, smaller fillets can be a good value.

Giovane maschio di Capodoglio (Physeter macrocephalus) lungo circa 6,5mt spiaggiato a Capo Milazzo (Me), Sicilia. Come potete vedere alla base della coda ahimè mostra quel che resta di una rete da pesca che probabilmente gli ha reso impossibile nuotare agevolmente. Era morto presumibilmente da qualche giorno. Per conto dell'Università di Medicina Veterinaria di Messina, dopo circa 4 ore di lavoro e non senza incontrare difficoltà sono riuscito a recuperato la mandibola lunga circa 150cm e pesante all'incirca 50kg, che dopo scarnificazione ed un trattamento tassidermico verrà esposta al Museo della Fauna della facoltà. Giornata dura, ma da ricordare. Tanta fatica, tanto dispiacere, ma tanta emozione nel trovarmi al cospetto di un animale simile. #vet #veterinaria #veterinary #vetlife #vetstudents #vetnobiety #biology #nature #wildlife #conservation #sicily #sea #spermwhale #whale

Part 2: 
As we've written many times before, we're not anti-hunting, but have an admitted problem with trophy hunting large carnivores whose ‎very existence underpin the systems that give us life. But we also take issue with efforts to make hunting policy a zero sum game, deepening the cultural divides and creating a never-ending fight that drains resources and hurts all involved. 
What's needed on both sides of the border is coherent policy that ensures there are places where people come first, and also places where wildlife can come first.

Buffer zones around areas we've already invested in conserving is a mandatory first step. Animals need more space than the small pockets we've afforded them and ensuring that they have a break when they step across that man-made line is just common sense. Development and hunting should never be allowed a foot away from Yellowstone's border.

The second step? Create wildlife corridors that provide sanctuary for animals like grizzlies as they move between protected areas (and between population units) so to ensure genetic diversity. Science will help us know what areas are most critical, but so too will indigenous knowledge. And by creating market-based solutions to implement these cooridors (certification for ranchers that help protect wildlife on their land, for example), they have the potential to pad the economies of those communities on the frontlines.

Both ideas will be hard to implement, but not impossible‎. Moreover, they have the potential to pivot the debate away from an us-versus-them dynamic and create change that will truly endure.

Regardless as to whether you agree or disagree with our position, the important recognition is that status quo isn't working and that new solutions to long tired debates are needed. It's no longer good enough to be against something; we must be for something. Raspberry and Snow and so many other creatures like them‎ that have given us so much deserve better than what's being offered. And it's now up to all of us, as individuals, to move past anger and saddness and work together to create a better tomorrow for all life.

Lysimachia lanceolata (lanceleaf loosestrife, NC S3). Uncommon in NC, like many plants in our area that have a preference for circumneutral soils. Photographed here at Picture Creek Diabase Barrens, an area will known for its circumneutral soils derived from mafic rocks. Co-occuring with a bunch of other regional rarities including Marshallia legrandii, Eryngium yuccifolium, Echinacea laevigata, and Aconitum uncinatum. The tree canopy consists largely of stunted Juniper and Post Oak due to the shallow depth of soils before hitting clay hardpan. The high degree of shrink/swell of this type of clayey soil is hard on plant roots and one of the reasons it harbors a bunch of rare plant species.

Bison herd and Teton Range, detail. As the herd grazes in front of Mount Moran in Tetons, the new calves romp and explore the lush meadow. This is part of a large panorama of a herd along the Teton range. The photo was a challenge not just because of stitching together multiple individual images, but because it took many attempts before the bison herd gathered at the right time at the right place.  Finally, in 2016 it all came together and this was the result.

Cottonmouths are just so adorable. Look at that face. And before you write that nasty comment, I think seeing the beauty in all creatures is a better quality than hating lifeforms out of ignorance. And save your stories about cottonmouths chasing you, snakes dont chase people. Just because they're travelling in the same direction as you, doesn't mean theyre coming after you. Leave them alone, and be that 1% of humanity that doesn't kill animals on site out of misguided, irrational fears. 80% of snakebites happen because the person was trying to kill the snake. Theyre just defending themselves against the species that slaughters them for no reason. #conservation #watermoccasin #cottonmouth mostly reposted and pc creds from @theamandafiles
