Narcissus ‘Giant Star’ is the first daffodil to flower in 2018 and it certainly lives up to its name plus the vanilla type scent is outstanding! #narcissus #daffodils ##geophyte #botanicgarden #publicgarden #livingmuseum #hamont #burlon #ontarionature #biodiversity

Las plantas y flores, evolutivamente,  siempre se han "esforzado" por atraer a las abejas.

El canyís ha tingut nombrosos usos al llarg de la història, com per fer sostres antigament o ara en processos de fitoremediació d'aigües residuals. Tot i això, pot arribar a ser una espècie invasora. Fotografia de la @isabelpuigmarin.

We may have forgotten about our native animals and their vulnerability to urban growth, tourism, deforestation, traffic, non-Native predators, reduction of habitats. Just some food for thought 🐨 Let’s stay aware of how we, government and Industry treat our native animals 🙏 Look out for them and keep them safe #natif #nativeanimals #environment #ecosystems #animalsofinstagram #biodiversity #animalwelfare #wombat #koala #kangaroo #possum #australiananimals #naturelovers

The adventure is over for now and Ali is coming back home. I’m so grateful for she had lived this marvellous experience. As an activist she is, I can’t imagine how much it supposes for her, to finally met the most biggest wildlife area of the world, to put her foot on it, breath the air and see the place by herself. Any Drake Passage can’t erase anything of this gratifying experience, by the hand of a wonderful crew like Esther or Fernando, and of course by the hand of David and his penguins. I think one of the most powerful things of this trip, is that she made it our journey too. We lived every post, picture, video, and we enjoyed of everything together, with her.
This is only the first step of this adventure, I’m sure she won’t stop her adventure, and I’m sure she won’t stop to fight to protect the Antarctic. We shouldn’t either.
Thank you @alisonsudol for giving us a little piece of such a magical place, and for let us know a bit more about what is happening on there. 💙 my heart is full of joy, happiness and proud.
Remember you can find the link to sign the official petition of Greenpeace to protect the Antarctic right now on their profile - @greenpeace. We are a million trying it now!!!

Nothing beats finding a snake, on a hike, in the middle of the night 🤗 
The Bionerds was ambling along a trail in the forest when a 'stick' across the pathway caught our eye, just in the periphery of our torch-light... and it turned out to be this beautiful Brown Water Snake. 
This species lives a life dependable on freshwater aquatic systems - making them fall in perfectly with our Wet Wednesdays. 
This was one of the largest specimens we have seen to date, estimated at around 50cm in length. 
They are drab olive brown, with a beautiful peachy pearly sheen on their bellies. 
They have round pupils, and an indistinct head. 
These snakes have a preferred diet of small fish, tadpoles and frogs, and are really adept swimmers which can dive and hunt underwater for a few minutes at a time. They also apparently eat other reptiles every now and then. 
All the specimens we have found has been along streams in mountainous areas - but they are also found in the lowland habitats. 
This species is harmless to man, and very docile.

🇺🇸 First time I entubated a Jaguar! Just have to be careful with all the sharp teeth around you!ㅤ
ㅤ
This animal was under anesthesia because she is part of a research project that is trying to inseminate jaguars artificially. For that to work she spends 2 months previous to the procedure taking meds that can control her cycle, making sure the insemination happens when she is ovulating. ㅤ

Essa onça foi anestesiada porque é parte de um projeto de pesquisa que esta tentando inseminar onças artificialmente. Para que isso de certo ela passa 2 meses antes do procedimento recebendo medicamentes que controlem seu ciclo estral, para que ela esteja ovulando na hora do procedimento. ㅤ

White Oak is not on fire today so we went out this morning to survey the results of the prescribed burns that were done yesterday. Besides seeing how the underbrush had been removed, we also found gopher tortoise burrows where their inhabitants had obviously 'sheltered in place'. Afterwards the tortoises had resurfaced and cleared the area around their burrows of ash and soot. 
Did you know that a gopher tortoise burrow averages 15 ft in length and 6.5 feet deep? The record length for a burrow is over 47 feet long!  Because of their length and depth the burrows maintain a fairly constant temperature and humidity throughout the year and protect the gopher tortoise, and the 350+ species they share their burrows with, from heat, cold, drought, and predators. 
According to @myfwc, "Gopher tortoises have adapted to living in dry habitats with frequent fire occurrence by digging burrows deep into the sandy soil. The absence of natural cycles of burning in pine forests spells hardship for tortoises. The dense vegetation (shrubs, brambles, small trees) that grows in a forest in the absence of fire shades out the tender herbs tortoises like to eat, and limits their food supplies. Fire is vital in maintaining many native ecosystems, like longleaf pine sandhills, where gophers live."
You're welcome, gopher tortoise; you're welcome.

Sordaria fimicola spores I saw in genetics lab at #jccc #biodiversity #jcccbiol150 #ascomycota
Costa Rica accounts for only 0.03 percent of the earth's surface (has only 51.100km2). However it contains nearly 6 percent of the world's biodiversity. Its natural wealth, both in species and ecosystems, is partly explained by its geographical position.

Mensaje al viento.

Puedo perderme con facilidad en la inmensidad del cielo, puedo sentir incluso el viento allí arriba. Veo a las aves dirigirse al horizonte, veo sus alas planear cortando las nubes, la firmeza de su mirada... Quisiera tener alas.
 Esta tarde me encontraba en la Laguna Setúbal ubicada en la capital de Santa Fe, un atardecer que transmitía paz y para completar el paisaje las aves decidieron dar un paseo.

Looks like UC Santa Cruz's salamanders give the salamanders I find at UC Berkeley a run for their money! These Santa Cruz black salamanders (Aneides flavipunctatus niger) are a geographically isolated subspecies of black salamander that only occur in the Santa Cruz Mountains. As seen from these three individuals, the young start out highly speckled, and gradually lose their patterning with age, though some adults still retain some of the speckling. A study from Reilly and Wake 2015 at Berkeley (take that, Santa Cruz!) determined that the Santa Cruz subspecies diverged from the rest of the population found in the North Bay, due to geologic processes that led to the separation of the Santa Cruz Mountains from the Coast Ranges of Marin and Sonoma Counties. Subsequent extirpation of intermediate populations from Marin and southern Sonoma led to the high genetic divergence that we see today in this subspecies. In fact, some researchers propose elevating it into its own separate species, Aneides niger.

Una altra espècie d’anèl·lid (“cuc”) marí que habita a la Pilona és l’esplèndida serpula vermella (Serpula vermicularis). La serpula, com la resta de poliquets que hem vist, és capaç de formar un tub calcari, en aquest cas d’uns 15 centímetres de longitud. D’aquest tub, en condicions òptimes, desplega un magnífic plomall rosat que utilitza per alimentar-se (Segona imatge*). *Font: Dr. Williams, Phil. Trans. 1858, p. 134.

I want to thank @pantheracats Panthera for inviting me to be one of their Social Media Ambassadors. Panthera is a New York-based NGO that focuses on conservation of big cats throughout the world. But it goes beyond lions, cheetahs and leopards. Often these NGOs are the only ones funding security and development for communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Anti-poaching units sometimes are the only security forces in some areas, and after securing the big cats, they employ locals as guides and also provide them with education. Panthera seeks to have these communities benefit from tourism, like in El Pantanal in Brazil. Consider supporting them and other similar NGOs. Nature and humans are meant to co-exist, I believe.

Nature and humans are meant to co-exist, I believe. #Cats  #Lions  #WildLife  #Safari  #Conservation  #Biodiversity  #Panthera  #Africa  #NewYork  #Houston 
"Marine Protected Areas help recover marine environments in order to provide natural solutions to critical environmental challenges. They provide safe havens for ocean wildlife to recover and maintain healthy biodiversity, supporting habitats that act as carbon sinks, removing CO2 from the air and generating the majority of atmospheric oxygen. Currently, a fraction of 1 percent of the ocean is fully protected. While we clearly have our work cut out for us, there is hope for the oceans if we all take responsibility for saving it." ~ Sylvia Earle

Stonefish - Synanceia •
Stonefish is a genus of fish of the family Synanceiidae, the stonefishes, whose members are venomous, dangerous, and even fatal to humans. It is one of the most venomous fish known. They are found in the coastal regions of the Indo-Pacific. (Source: Wikipedia)

All photos captured by Spohr Photography. •
Although the majority of images are captured in the wild, a very small number of animals have been photographed at wildlife presentations, wildlife parks or zoos. The aim is to bring the shown animal closer to my audience, to make the viewer aware of the fragility of nature and what we need to protect. Every day our planet loses about 200 species of plants, bird, and mammals. I hope to capture a fraction of them before they are gone…

Here’s a lovely little Auzzie scarab beetle. @jayswildlife says he is Saprinus species (Histeridae) — so, now you know!  He may also be commonly known as a”clown beetle".
⠀
He also looks a bit like a piece of expensive 1900's jewelry and that's enough for me to get excited and photograph him!  I love the metallic beetles and borers but they are difficult to photograph since they are reflective and are often iridescent -- this one was patient.

A #Madagascar poison frog or Baron's #mantella #frog has #aposematic or warning coloration that signals potential predators that it is #poisonous to eat it. It also has the side benefit of making them 
#beautiful. Madagascar has at least 220 species of frogs and 16 of these belong to this genus Mantella. Sadly, nearly 40% of world's frog species are #threatened or near threatened with #extinction. 36 species have gone #extinct in the last few decades. Many Madagascar species are threatened with extinction due to the 90% loss of its rainforest.

Madagaskar'daki bu zehirli Baron'un mantella kurbağasının aposematik renkleri, onu yemek isteyen hayvanları uyarıyor. Güzel bir kurbağa olması uyarı renklerinin sadece bir yan etkisi.

#DESCUBRE La espátula africana se diferencia de la espátula común por la zona pelada de color rojo que posee en su cara. Se localiza en gran parte en el sur del Sáhara y Madagascar. // #DISCOVER The African spatula differs from the common spatula by the bare red area it has on its face. It is located largely in the south of the Sahara and Madagascar.

Playero blanco / Sanderling /  Calidris alba

Ave pequeña, muy inquieta y veloz. Corren por la playa en numerosos grupos, buscando sin cesar alimento en la arena, arrancando de las olas y luego persiguiendo a la que se va.  Muy divertidas de observar. Se reproducen en el hemisferio norte, visitan las costas de Chile durante nuestra primavera - verano.
