A recent paper carried out by @CEHScience with the Wildlife Farming Company, describes a 6-year experiment on a UK intensive conventional #arable #farm which assessed the effect of converting a small proportion of less-productive land into a wild-life friendly habitat. They found that over a 5-year period, the average yield for all #crops within the rotation (wheat, oilseed rape and beans) was significantly enhanced by creation of #wildlife habitats on 3% of land. This yield was further increased by creation of habitat on 8% of #land. There was also an increase in abundance of #pollinators and predatory #beetles in the fields where 8% of land was converted to a wildlife-friendly habitat. #agroecology #naturefriendlyfarming #biodiversity #britishfarming #regenerativefarming #regenerativeagriculture #agriculture #arable #harvest #min-till #directdrill #farmmachinery #organic #stewardship

Chiricoca (Ochetorhyncus melanurus) . La primera vez que vi una chiricoca fue en Santiago, en el cerro El Carbón. Pero justo no andaba con mi cámara. Ahora pude fotearla en el sector del Empedrado en Cochiguaz. En Chile se describen dos subespecies, la ssp. melanurus encontrada en Aconcagua y Colchagua, y la ssp. atacamae (la de la foto) que se distribuye entre Huasco y Coquimbo. Además, ésta es una especie endémica que solamente se puede encontrar en Chile y en ninguna otra parte del mundo 🌎, en pocas palabras es más chilena que los porotos... No obstante, alguno de Uds sabía de su existencia? Conocer para conservar es un desafío necesario para poder preservar nuestro patrimonio natural. . . . #endemism #endemismo #endemic #endemico #chiricoca #valledelelqui #cochiguaz #bird #birds #ornithology #birdwatching #birding #birdlover #aves #avesdechile #ornitologia #feather #feather_perfection #biodiversity #nature #wildlife #naturephotography #wildlifechile #chileannature #instabirds #birds_of_the_world #conservation #chile at Cochiguaz

The cattle egret (Bubulcus ibis) is the most common heron not only in Africa, but also in the whole world. This bird lives on all continents except Antarctica. Assigning the name, scientists marked the peculiarity of the bird accompanied by the growing of cattle (the Latin word Bubulcus or Bobulcus is translated as "Herdsman", "Shepherd"). In addition, it is a constant attendant of elephants, rhino, buffaloes and other ungulates. Scared of walking the insects are popped out of grass and fall for lunch to these birds. They are the main food of the cattle egret. But, occasionally, these birds don't mind eating a domestic chicken. ⠀ Египетская цапля (Bubulcus ibis) - самая распространенная цапля не только в Африке, но и в целом мире. Эта птица встречается на всех континентах, кроме Антарктиды. Присваивая название, учёные подчеркнули особенность птицы сопровождать выпас крупного рогатого скота (латинское слово bubulcus или bobulcus переводится как «волопас», «пастух»). Кроме того, она постоянный спутник слонов, носорогов, буйволов и других копытных. Вспугнутые ходьбой животного насекомые выскакивают из травы и попадают на обед этим птицам. Они - основная пища египетских цапель. Но, изредка эти птицы не прочь полакомиться даже домашним цыплёнком. ⠀ #africantrails #amazingafrica #africannature #biodiversity #wildliferesearch #zoopics #wildlifephotography #wildlifepictures #animalworld #birdsoftheworld #africanmoments #egretwithprey #birdwatching #wildlifeaddicts #onlyafrica #birdwatchers #natgeowild #exploringafrica #birdsofinstagram #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotographer #naturepic #ornitology #naturelovers #egrets #africananimals #birdsofafrica #catgleegret #bubulcusibis #southafrica at Johannesburg

Because the keto diet cuts out a number of food options, it’s a good idea to supplement with specific nutrients. Our Quintessential Hypertonic Elixir is a great way to remineralize the body! Also we recommend focusing on increasing your consumption of sodium, potassium and magnesium to prevent symptoms like headaches, muscle cramps and fatigue.

Walking through our vineyards in spring, can be quite difficult, cause all the cover crops are standing high and full of vitality! But it is such a relief, watching all the insects, bees and animals enjoying the rich offer of food, shelter and space. I couldn’t think of a better way to farm our land. Trying the wines of the 2018 vintage, mirrors the vineyards. Such complex, layered and fun wines. Lots of treasures are still in barrel and waiting for bottling.

There's a reason why it's the GRAND Canyon. With a lenght of 450 km, up to 29 km wide and up to 1.6 km deep, this place is so much vaster than I'd ever imagined! The oldest rocks in the canyon are 1.8 billion years old (!). It also boasts an incredible species richness and diversity (including 12 plants endemic to the NP) 🌱 Very special ✨ at Grand Canyon National Park

Song Dog Sunday Red Fox || Vulpes vulpes Alert. Attentive. Patient. Fox love. Parental bonds and devotion to their young kits are part of Red fox families. Both parents share in the kit rearing duties; teaching, grooming, protecting, food acquisition to name a few responsibilities these canid parents provide. This female had 6 dens secured and a 7th, she often used. Like coyotes, the fox plays a vital role in ecosystem balance; consuming rodents, keeping numbers in check and removing these host species of ticks from the landscape.

The last few days have been a whirlwind of emotions. From joining the @extinctionrebellion protests in London, filming a campaign about our environment and watching the International Rebellion unfurl online. I’m so moved, grateful and humbled by the people participating in this effort. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌏🌏🌏⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, for every protest that happens we need only one leader to support our efforts and meet our demands for the precedent to be set. This afternoon @mayorofldn Saddiq Khan failed to show his support. If you are reading this Mayor, please do not be on the wrong side of history. Please think of the future as opposed to short-term convenience. Do not be a leader, like many others who fail support our planet and people. This is an emergency and the time to act is NOW. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our planet is dying and we can no longer act as though nothing is happening. While many of us cannot be with the protesters I want to create a hashtag to show support #imwithXR. Social media is incredibly powerful. Message the mayor, show your support, voice your concerns. It’s not too late. at London, United Kingdom

Oophaga pumilio (Blue Jeans frog) Su reproducción es curiosa, llegan a poner los huevos tierra, hojarasca o tronco húmedos. Una vez que los renacuajos están formados, los padres los cargan en su lomo hasta un cuerpo de agua, incluso los llegan a depositar en tanques de agua formadas entre las hojas de las Bromelias. Cuando los renacuajos están dentro del cuerpo de agua, las ranas hembras depositan uno o dos huevos sin fertilizar para que se alimenten los renacuajos. Esta ranita es muy apreciada para ser utilizados en los terrarios, por lo que son extraídos de su hábitat natural para ser vendidos en forma ilegal. Por lo tanto, está considerada bajo amenaza de extinción. Por último, los machos son muy territoriales. Se piensa que su comportamiento está influenciada por el número de Bromelias o de hormigas u otros insectos (alimentación). Fuente: CR-UNBio. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Its reproduction is curious, they get to put the eggs earth, leaf litter or wet trunk. Once the tadpoles are formed, the parents carry them on their back to a body of water, even depositing them in water tanks formed between the leaves of the Bromeliads. When the tadpoles are inside the body of water, the female frogs deposit one or two unfertilized eggs to feed the tadpoles. This frog is very appreciated to be used in terrariums, so they are extracted from their natural habitat to be sold illegally. Therefore, it is considered under threat of extinction. Finally, the males are very territorial. It is thought that their behavior is influenced by the number of Bromeliads or ants or other insects (feeding).

E7187, Slow loris. This mounted slow loris was confiscated by US federal wildlife officials in 2013. Eradicated from a significant portion of their native habitat, slow loris are considered “vulnerable” by the @redlist_of_ecosystems, mostly due to habitat loss and the wildlife trade. Deforestation in Malaysia and Indonesia for palm oil plantations is a major threat to the incredible biodiversity only found in this area. . Through the lens of illegally trafficked wildlife products, this project navigates the complex human perception of wildlife as property. It strives to ask - using images - the delicate questions that we must now face in the Anthropocene: is the sole function of our natural world to satisfy the needs of humans? Can the natural world be owned? #worthmorealive #slowloris #whenthebuyingstopsthekillingcantoo . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #canon #loris #iucn #iucnredlist #extinction #extinctionisforever #biodiversity #loveourplanet #portrait @iucn #conservationphotography #conservation @wildaid #protectourplanet #wildaid at Planet Earth

Not quite the Easter bunny but kind of on theme! Hoping you've all had a lovely Sunday, hunted eggs and spent time with loved ones. Brown hares are much larger than rabbits and can run at up to 72km an hour to escape predators. Unfortunately, no amount of running will save them from threats like agricultural intensification, grazing pressure, and hunting which is why the brown hare has a Species Action Plan, under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan. #earthday #protectourspecies #protectwhatyoulove #lovenature #sustainability #hare #brownhare #longeared #speciesactionplan #ukbiodiversityactionplan #biodiversityactionplan #earthday2019 #environmentalist #climatechange #biodiversity #easter #easterbunny #savetheworld #savetheworld #lovewildlife #wildlife #nature #naturelovers

So @friendsofpricepark recently extended their park property so I decided to check it out the other day. There was so much land that I had previously never ventured out into, considering at the time it was private property. Little did I know that Allatoona Creek has the biological capacity to harbor a wide variety of slider turtles! I saw this large Eastern River Cooter facing towards me in the creek, then decided to creep around to the side for a better shot. When I got to the sandy bank close to the creek, I found that a small Yellow Belly Slider was basking directly behind her! I had no idea these turtles lived here, but I’m certainly glad that they do. 😊 . . . #rivercooter #yellowbellyslider #sliderturtle #turtle #turtles #turtlesofinstagram #wildlife #nature #herp #herps #herpetology #herping #reptilephotography #outdoors #reptile #reptiles #reptilesofinstagram #turtlelove #reptilelover #biology #zoology #biodiversity #environmentalscience #ecology #leonehallpricepark at Leone Hall Price Park

Scilla luciliae is the variety of the blue star flower which spread into a carpet. It has only one flower on it’s stem and has spread very largely under the huge willow tree wth the soil similar to that in a forest. Here some violets are inbetween, but the Scilla seems to be dominant and has maybe pushed the annemons away? This same spot used to be white with annemons some years ago, now it’s blue. So stunning to observe how nature creates this garden every year a little different. . . . . . . . #scillaluciliae #naturalgarden #nature #flower #plants #naturalbehavior #observingnature #biodiversity #wildlife #supportbees #havenforbees #homeofwildbees #localplants #wildflowers #plant #garden #naturalgardening #organic #lovenature #generousgarden #generouswildgarden #wildherbs #blossom #bloom #scilla #blue #woods #flowerbed #flowercarpet
