#OTD in 1965, "Miss Goodall and the Wild Chimpanzees" was first broadcast on CBS.

Since then, #JaneGoodall has become synonymous with wildlife conservation & research, especially regarding chimps.

Watch Goodall speak in this 2017 episode of PBS NewsHour:

A statue of a koala (with Aboriginal-style artwork, blue in colour), about 1.5m high, stands on all fours beside a sign about wildlife conservation.
The sign close up.

Burleigh Brewing

Represents the unification of two worlds, the Aboriginal world and the Western world, and reflects harmony and balance.

Burleigh Brewing acquired the Connection Koala as part of a fundraising program for Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.  One of the busiest wildlife hospitals in the world.  Currumbin Wildlife Hospital's mission is to treat, rehabilitate and release sick, injured and orphaned Australian wildlife.

Bureigh Brewing have shared the Connection Koala with Binna Burra where it stands proudly in this beautiful location as a way for visitors to connect and reflect on our shared love for koalas, their habitat and their future.  The artwork spoke to Burleigh Brewing's own ethos of Balance, Character and Soul and its passion for building local connections that can enhance and nurture our community for all.

Hopefully the devastating ecological harm from the invasive horses can finally end soon. Rounding them up would cause too much damage and make the problem even worse, possibly wiping out one of the critically endangered wildlife species. Aerial shooting will have the least environmental impact, but will have loud opposition anyway.

What if you found out that a #bird you saw today is scheduled to completely vanish from its #habitat in a few years?

How would you react if you learned that the key reason why that bird's #species will vanish is due to wide scale, global #deforestation ?

I believe tortoises, like all beings, have worth just because they exist but, headline aside, it's still good news worth sharing.

Hundreds of birds are dying every year after colliding with a glass building in Chicago. The McCormick Place Lakeside Center is a notorious bird-killer, especially during migration seasons. Conservationists are calling for bird-friendly design and lighting to prevent this tragedy. #birdcollision #glassbuilding #wildlifeconservation

For those of you who were playing along at home.

I'm happy a raptor made the top 10. I hope polls like this give rise to further conservation efforts.

🐦 Part Time Nerd Projects

Yesterday my washing line was proudly displaying yellow and red cloth bags. My 'ringing bag' was packed and my wellies given a good wash to removed any contamination from my last outing. I was hoping to go out this morning & continue my bird ringing training - but the weather had other ideas 🙄

What is bird ringing & why do we do it?
Here is an article by the wildlife trust:

Maybe next time 🤞

Safeguarding the pilot whales: How many are left and what dangers do they confront? 🐳💔

Have you ever wondered about the current population of pilot whales and the challenges they encounter in their marine habitat? Explore the article to discover the crucial facts and join the conversation on protecting these magnificent creatures.

#WildlifeConservation #MarineLife #PilotWhales

They’re “gulls” not “seagulls” which is why they’re so common inland, in fact many gulls aren’t oceanic at all except during winter.

Almost all birds and nests are protected in Canada under the Migratory Birds Convention Act that dumptrump tried to cancel…so it’s illegal to harass or harm nests most birds without a permit from CWS.

#WildlifeConservation #Biodiversity #WildlifeManagement #Gulls

Please report Franklins ground squirrel sightings, the grey head and bushy tail are the identifying characteristics. They’re both on the ground and in trees.

These don’t work well, or at all when not put on kitty before being released out to slaughter wildlife. They’re just another excuse for irresponsible pet owners to continue being irresponsible wildlife killers.

The busy #WildlifeRehabilitation season has begun & the 1st #injured & #orphaned #RedShoulderedHawks are coming in. Here are before & after photos of this very hungry #hawklet. She fell 60 feet from her nest, and was found by kind-hearted #hikers who brought her into the wildlife center. 2nd photo after eating 4 chopped mice. 😳☺️

She still has her #EggTooth (tiny white spot) on tip of beak - helps her to crack egg shell when she was hatching.

My son and I attended a talk by Ryan Phelan on Bringing Biotech to Conservation. We were shocked to hear about the sudden die-off of Pacific kelp forests off of Northern California since 2014 due to a wasting disease attacking a certain kind of sea stars resulting in an explosion of sea urchin population which block the recovery of kelp forests. Surprised it's not a bigger story.

Finally, my #introduction !

I'm a freelance science writer and editor writing mostly about #climatechange, #earthscience, #conservation, #forestconservation, and #ecologicalrestoration. Soon, I'll publish more pieces on #energy, #wildlifeconservation, and #immigrantculture.

I'll be sharing my science writing here and my favorite #narrative #nonfiction. But I'm really more excited about sharing #garden and #pet photos. If you #compost and keep a worm bin, let's chat!


@alex two things where I'm involved in outside of my technological bread and butter work (which requires scale) but which don't scale well are #Montessori methods and #WildlifeConservation ... Thank you for writing this. Hope this paper becomes a good starting point for having discussions with the tech warriors and saviours who want to "disrupt" these markets ... Errrr ... spaces.

Aotearoa's vanishing species.
The cuter ones get a lot of attention but that means we're not caring for the rest of indigenous species.
#Aotearoa #ClimateEmergency #VulnerableSpecies #WildlifeConservation #NZ

Title: Aotearoa's vanishing species   Text to the left:  "THERE ARE 8000 ENDEMIC INDIGENOUS SPECIES AT RISK OF EXTINCTION. DOC RECEIVES $300 MILLION A YEAR. MUCH OF THE $300 MILLION IS SPENT ON PEST CONTROL. ONLY $29 MILLION IS DEVOTED TO SPECIES SPECIFIC FUNDING. 70% IS SPENT ON BIRDS. 30% IS SPENT ON PLANTS, INSECTS, FISH AND FUNGI."  Drawings: Grayling fish - head popping out of a pond.  A snail sadly sliding past. A worried wētā waving for help. Three blue (very sad) entolama fungis, two lonely bees hovering, one upset monarch butterfly and three little mountain daisies looking maudlin. They're all saying, "We're not cute! But we're still needed!"
