Teachers appreciated using #infographics as a way to #differentiate constructing explanations in #science . A pretty good day for #conservationeducation ! #sciencelife #evidencebased #inquirybasedlearning #professionallearning #informaleducators #learnatthezoo #WeStandForWildlife

The birds still remember what we have forgotten, that the world is meant to be celebrated. (Terry Tempest Williams) . I've found myself disengaging a bit with sharing my photos. So, about that: I have a bad habit of taking lots of photos and then talking myself out of doing anything with them. So while I loved the interaction between these birds (allopreening - or mutual grooming between a pair of bonded birds), all that kept jumping out at me were the flaws in composition. I'm trying to get better at shooting only in manual in all situations. With animal photography, especially at zoos, there are lots of creative limitations, time being one of them (I'm often using my lunch break). Portraying these natural behaviors takes time and observation and you can't rush that, much like you can't rush through setting up a shot... but animals don't wait for you. So I get caught up in what I didn't do right. . Add to this is that, while my recent decision to pursue a PMP (project manager) certification is a good career step, this overtly analytical way of thinking has crept into my life outside of work. Identifying limitations and critical dependencies, analyzing and managing risks... I sometimes lose sight of anything past the most practical needs. And though I've become real proficient at identifying sources of anxiety, I need to get just as skilled at identifying that which makes me happy. . TLDR; I want back the time I've spent feeling bad about feeling bad. Life's too short and too brilliant for nonsense like that. . #thepursuitofscience #makeportraits #westandforwildlife #birdsaredinosaurs #putabirdonit #forthebirds

#Repost @fadhilfchrn with @repostapp ・・・ Beberapa hari lagi mungkin genap 60 hari, menelusuri berbagai daerah pesisir dengan pulau yang berbeda di Maluku Utara. Menerjang gelombang untuk sampai ke desa dari desa. Bergelut dengan aktivitas nelayan, semua dicari tahu dari sosial, ekonomi, pengetahuan maupun persepsi. Sangat awam untuk mengenal dunianya, dari alat tangkap yang digunakannya, armada yang ditungganginya serta berbagai jenis ikan yang diburu olehnya. Dari berbagai desa yang sudah dijejaki, desa ini amat mencolok berbeda dengan desa lainnya, mereka mayoritas dikenal sebagai "orang laut", ya memang selama disini semua dirasakan aktivitas diatas laut, makan, tidur dan mandi. Mengenal beberapa nelayan didesa ini, mereka memiliki nyali karena memang buruannya tak seperti biasa (pemburu hiu). Salah seorang mulai menekuni sebagai nelayan hiu sudah dilakukan 5 tahun terakhir belakangan ini, awal mulanya sebagai nelayan ikan dasar (ikan karang jenis barakuda, kerapu, dll) mengubah haluan pemburuan karena nilai jual sirip maupun ekor hiu lebih banyak rupiah yang didapat sebagai pemenuh kebutuhan seharinya. Besaran sirip maupun ekor yang dijual dilihat dari ukuran Centimeter, kualitas super ukuran 50cm dijual 1,5jt sampai ukuran 15cm dijual 300rb oleh pengempul. Dalam sebulan pemburuan dilakukan 10x, mengunakan kapal fiber dengan kapasitas 2 GT berkekuatan 15 PK dengan 2 ABK. Paling sedikit sekali trip tangkapannya 3 ekor, paling banyak 60 ekor tetapi rata-rata tangkapannya 15 ekor sekiranya dalam sebulan tangkapan mencapai kurang lebih 125 ekor. Butuh sosialisasi terhadap masyarakat, solusi yang tepat, regulasi diperkuat sebagai upaya perlindungan dalam pengelolaan perikanan ikan hiu secara komprehensif. @itong_hiu @nadinelist @r_djangkaru #WeStandForWildlife #Conservation #SOShark #DKPMalut #KKPDMalut #Indonesia #MalukuUtara

Excited to announce the release of my Conservation Collection - a series of 10 hand cut shadow box necklaces inspired by endangered or threatened species all over the world. 100% of profit from this collection will be donated to the Wildlife Conservation Society based in New York City. WCS is a fantastic nonprofit organization that establishes long term conservation efforts through policy interventions & scientific study while working with local communities to mitigate the loss of threatened species. Each piece is brass & sterling, one of a kind, made in Greenport, and has information about the animal on every tag. With the precarious state of the environment today it's on us to work together to help those that are vulnerable. Available at @theweatheredbarn in Greenport. 🦇🦋🦈🦍 #wcs #wildlife #conservation @thewcs #jewelry #handmade #nonprofit #animal #endangeredspecies #commongroundadornments #newproject #silversmith #newseries #nyc #madeinny #bronx #westandforwildlife #northfork #nofo

It makes me realize that I have been time traveling. It's just that I've been traveling into the future, at 60 minutes per hour. And maybe that's how we fix the past. (Sean Cole) . Gharial, Bronx Zoo #thepursuitofscience #westandforwildlife . . Surreally prehistoric. That's the closest I can come to describing these crocodilians. When I heard there were new gharials in JungleWorld, I had to go and see with my own eyes. Really stunning creatures. I went with a particular angled shot in mind but of course it relied too much on an up-close view of them. So instead I resorted to shooting through glass and through water to capture this surreal sight. Though by no means a technically well-executed shot, I'm glad I made the most of it. . Unfortunately this is not a common sight in the wild. Despite a massive effort to bring these creatures back from the brink of extinction in the 1970s, as of the early 2000s, less than 200 breeding adults remain in the wild, and they remain a critically endangered species. Habitat destruction, hunting and overfishing must be prevented in order to ensure their survival in the wild. Until their success in the wild is certain, captive breeding programs in zoos across the world will help maintain genetic diversity for a species that in the wild only exists, highly fragmented, in India and Nepal (2% of their original range). A tragic shame that a species that has its origins at least as far back as the Cretaceous faces such challenges to survive.

Why are there sssso many ssssongsss about rainbowsss and what'sss on the other sssside? . Rainbow boa, Bronx Zoo . . The rainbow boa's iridescent sheen is not a trifecta of pigmentation - it's actually structural coloration. The cells are microscopically structured in such a way that they reflect different wavelengths of light, hence the rainbow colors. Structural coloration was first discovered by scientists Robert Hooke and Isaac Newton. #thepursuitofscience #friYAY ! #westandforwildlife

Time to take a stand. . Silvered leaf langurs, Bronx Zoo. #WildlifeWednesday #WeStandForWildlife #thepursuitofscience . What does wildlife conservation have to do with national security, trade and economics? A whole lot, actually. Case in point: the illegal wildlife trade. Animals are easier to smuggle than drugs or humans. It's a multi-billion dollar business that is a destabilizing force in many developing countries around the world. It's led by corrupt opportunists, and funds warlords and terrorism. Wildlife crime is organized crime, and terrorists profit off the lives of threatened and endangered species. Langurs like these in the wild are threatened by the illegal pet trade and deforestation for logging and the development of oil plantations. Wildlife conservation is not a partisan issue. The policies of the U.S. - including international trade agreements, national security and climate action (or inaction) - can impact the lives of every animal on this planet - not just humans. So what do you stand for?
