Wild Meerkat conservation since 1993 - lockdown books . Expert ReviewsLibrary Journal . Meerkats have been the subject of TV shows and children's books, and now they are the topic of a full-length scholarly natural history account by biologist and conservationist McIlrath aka the Meerkat Man. The book broaches such subjects as taxonomy, morphology, habitats, reproduction, and diet. Most of the habits of these fascinating animals hinge on their highly communal, sociable lifestyles. A prey species, meerkats must be vigilant in looking out for potential predators. The image of a meerkat standing guard is a familiar one, and McIlrath debunks some of the ideas surrounding this "sentinel duty." Concluding chapters illustrate the importance of conservation efforts for these animals, which play an important ecological role and could potentially aid in preventing desertification. The author has spent more than 20 years in fieldwork with two of the three recognized meerkat subspecies. The intimacy he has gained through these observations is evident via the rich photographic record he presents as complement to the text. McIlrath's observational analyses are bolstered by photographic proof and make for an engaging study of this popular animal.

¿Los búhos tienen cuernos? No amigos, pura ilusión óptica. En realidad se trata de plumas grandes que están acomodadas de tal forma que simulan un par de cuernos. Por ello les llaman búhos cornudos. Los oídos internos están ocultos por plumas y se encuentran localizados de forma asimétrica (uno por encima del otro ) lo que agudiza su audición. Además tienen discos faciales que son plumas filosas y duras al rededor de los ojos y cara que dirigen y amplifican los sonidos a sus oídos. Foto 1: Búho cornudo / Bubo virginianus en cautiverio.

NEIGHBOURHOOD FORAGING🌿 . Tips and tricks for wild mushrooms . Foraging for wild mushrooms has become something of a trend of late on our bar and restaurant industry. Local and biological produce is generally considered of higher quality, and foraged flora and fungi, fall right in to place in this category. I've noticed I've being drawn to the words 'wild mushrooms' on a menu before when eating out, and we think this trend in the industry might continue. . It's important that for these reasons we also understand the risks involved when foraging. There's over 3000 different species of wild mushrooms in Quebec alone, and only some 150 kinds are considered safe for consummation. . So! We urge young and new foragers to educate themselves before doing any picking! Become part of mycology and foraging communities, talk to experts, ask for advice and READ BOOKS. You can use different apps and even upload photos on social media platforms to ask experienced foragers for more advice, just in case. DONT PICK IF NOT 100% SURE!! . And maybe even more important! Be aware that nature can only produce a certain amount every year. To conserve all these wild species, we have to make sure not to over-forage these amazing wild fungi. . . . #mushroomforaging #mushrooms #fungus #conserve #quebec #bartenders #wildmushrooms #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #nature

It isnt everyday that you see a humpback whale, in freshwater, 400 kilometres away from its natural habitat, in one of Canada’s largest cities’ downtown shipping ports. This young whale, estimated to be about two or three years old has travelled south down the Saint Lawrence river, to the port of Montreal where it has spent the last two days. Repeatedly breaching and tail flapping, biologists feel that the whale is healthy and content. Fisheries and Oceans is constantly escorting it to protect it from boats and ships. What will eventually happen to this whale is the question on everyone’s mind. • Ce n’est pas tous les jours qu’on peut observer une baleine à bosse, en eau douce, à 400 kilomètres de son habitat naturel, dans le port d’une des plus grandes villes du Canada. Cette jeune baleine, estimée à environ deux ou trois ans, a voyagé vers le sud le long du fleuve Saint-Laurent, jusqu'au port de Montréal où elle a passé les deux derniers jours. Les biologistes estiment que la baleine est en bonne santé. Pêches et Océans Canada l'escorte constamment pour la protéger des bateaux et des navires. Ce qui finira par arriver à cette baleine est la question que tout le monde se pose. • #humpbackwhale #humpback #whale #baleine #baleineabosse #montrealwhale #humpbackwhales #montreal #quebec #canada #wildlife_perfection #wildlifecaptures #wildlife_captures #wildlife_shots #wildlifeconservation #canadianwildlife #sharecangeo #wildlife_vision #wildlife_seekers #natgeoyourshot #wildlifeplanet #planetearth #wildlife_supreme #wildlife__focus #wildlife_inspired #saintlawrenceriver #fleuvesaintlaurent #breach #sealegacy

Orang-outan de Sumatra / Sumatran orang-utan Ce jeune orang-outan âgé d'un an et demie se prénomme "Tahura". Lorsqu'il aura atteint sa maturité sexuelle, vers l'âge de 8 ans, il sera sans doute transféré vers un autre parc zoologique afin d'éviter qu'il ne s'accouple avec des femelles de sa famille (consanguinité ). Ces échanges, gérés à l'échelle européenne par un coordinateur, permettent un brassage génétique et constituent une population saine d'animaux menacés de disparition. Ainsi, tous les orangs-outans répartis dans une trentaine de zoos européens sont recensés par cette personne, qui sait exactement à quelle date est né Tahura, dans quel zoo, qui sont ses parents, etc. Quand un nouveau zoo aura besoin d'un mâle orang-outan pour s'accoupler avec une de ses femelles, il pourra être contacté pour le transfert de Tahura. C'est ce qui explique pourquoi la plupart des zoos ne prélèvent plus d'animaux directement dans la nature et s'impliquent pour la conservation des espèces menacées. Cette naissance et cette coordination sont donc un espoir pour la sauvegarde de l'orang-outan de Sumatra, dont il ne reste que 13 000 individus sauvages en Indonésie... . . . . . #orangutan #sumatra #indonesia #ape #monkey #zoodelaboissieredudore #nantes #primate #rainforest #orangoutan #monkeysofinstagram #babymonkey #cutemonkey #cute #baby #zoophotography #wildlifeconservation #endangeredspecies #wildlifephotography #monkeys #funnymonkey #babyanimals #cuteanimals #babiesofinstagram #newborn #saveorangutan #adorable @zoodelaboissieredudore

All three of these yellow crested night herons came in today from different areas. As soon as the second one came in, the first one climbed out of his bin and in with his new buddy. Then, when the third came in he immediately left his bin to hang out with the first two! You’d think they were siblings with how quickly they cuddled up together. These three are just too cute not to share. #mondayfunday #cute #babybirds #wildlife #wildliferehab #birdwatching #birdwatchers #birding #dallas #wildlifeconservation #heron #

Patience. As I wrote this caption, I was sitting in a photography hide waiting for a fox family to appear. I’d been sitting alone in silence for 2.5 hours. With the need to stretch my legs. With the thoughts in my head. And the sounds of nature surrounding me. What’s the point in all of this? Why put myself through all of this discomfort? The truth is: wildlife photography comprises the uncomfortable. The failures and successes. The long hours and heavy equipment. The days when you point your camera towards a field and nothing happens. All the planning, waiting, hoping, doubting and questioning ultimately does culminate to something incredible: that special moment when you observe a unique moment face-to-face with a wild animal in its natural habitat. The racing heart beat, awe, fascination and inspiration is simply indescribable. A few seconds after writing this caption, I had the closest encounter with a fox pup that I’d ever had in my life. I wouldn’t give up these moments for anything, despite the long hours, back aches and mosquito bites. What types of moments do you live for? 🐑 Shot on the Sony A7R4 in Northern Germany. • ‪www.lana-tannir.com‬ • — #northerngermany   #geomagazin   #discoverer   #wildlife   #wildlifeconservation   #natgeo   #natgeoyourshot   #bbcwild   #naturephotography   #nature_shooters   #helgoland   #wwf   #landscape   #animalplanet   #nature_shooters   #planetearth   #earthfocus   #greenpeace   #wwf #ram #sheep #natureadvocacy #wildlifephotography #norddeutschland #natureconservation
