Found myself slicing carrots and apples at 2.25am - and being extremely happy about it after spotting a very familiar figure in the dark 😊. So out we went - Sintti & I - to say hello to a dear friend, Team Sintti´s honorary member 🐰Väiski💙!
Nowadays I get to see our buddy only maybe a couple of times a week, so I really enjoyed the meeting - and the big boy enjoyed the 🍎🥕❗😁

Sand martins return from Africa to Norfolk to find council has covered their nests in ‘cruel’ netting

Sand martins prevented from nesting on Bacton cliff side, in Norfolk, by nets erected by North Norfolk District Council to attempt to combat cliff erosion.

These are sand hills not cliffs btw… they live ebb and grow and have done ever since doggerland sank 7000 years ago.

Decision coincides with visit to enclosure by French marine expert Jean-Michel Cousteau

Russian authorities have decided to free nearly 100 whales held in cages in the country’s far east, according to reports.

Images of the whales, kept in cramped enclosures in a bay near the Sea of Japan port city of Nakhodka, first appeared last year, triggering a storm of criticism.

Activists say 1,100 dolphins found since January - but real figure may be 10 times higher

A record number of dolphins have washed up on France’s Atlantic coast in the last three months, many with devastating injures.

Environmental campaigners say 1,100 mutilated dolphins have been found since January, but the real figure could be 10 times higher as many bodies sink without trace. Activists warn the marine slaughter could threaten the extinction of the European dolphin population in the region.

Vote by MEPs paves way for law to come into force by 2021 across EU

The European parliament has voted to ban single-use plastic cutlery, cotton buds, straws and stirrers as part of a sweeping law against plastic waste that despoils beaches and pollutes oceans.

The vote by MEPs paves the way for a ban on single-use plastics to come into force by 2021 in all EU member states.
The last straw: European parliament votes to ban single-use plastics

40 kilogram of plastic bags found in dead whale's stomach


“The most plastic we have ever seen in a whale. It’s disgusting,” Darrell Blatchley, a Davao City-based American marine biologist and President of D’ Bone Collector Museum Inc., posted on his Facebook page as the “final cause of death.”

Released on Saturday evening, the result of the necropsy, conducted by Blatchley and Dr. Elaine Vera Belvis of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR)-Fishery Management Regulatory and Enforcement Division showed “all stomach compartments were full of foreign materials such as plastics of varying sizes and shapes, sacks, among others.”

On February 13, 2019, a dead a pygmy sperm whale was found in Panacan, this city. Condom and plastic wastes were recovered from its stomach. (Antonio L. Colina IV / MIndaNews)

Coke Company confeeses to produce more than 3.3 million tonnes of plastic garbage


The figures – which the company has refused in the past to disclose – reveal the amount of plastic packaging Coca-Cola produced in 2017. The company did not reveal the scale of its bottle production but when its packaging footprint is translated into 500ml PET plastic bottles, it amounts to about 108bn bottles a year, more than a fifth of the world’s PET bottle output of about 500bn bottles a year.

“We applaud the companies that are publishing this data and encourage all companies that make and use plastics to disclose their plastics footprint.”

“Ambition levels must continue to rise to make real strides in addressing global plastic pollution by 2025, and moving from commitment to action is crucial.”

Nanny goat to become first honorary pet mayor in Fair Haven


Lincoln, with 13 votes, beat out a dog named Sammie that received 10 votes. The other candidates combined for 30 votes.

Town Manager Joseph Gunter said he heard about a small town in northern Michigan trying something similar and he thought it would be a good way to raise money for a local playground. It only raised about $100 through a $5 entry fee, but it provided other benefits.

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere


I'm not a photographer, more of a hiker / traveler with a camera. Nature does all of the hard work, I just show up. I mostly shoot landscapes (with the odd critter thrown in) and images of Canada.

When traveling, I love stomping around neighborhoods capturing people in their natural habitats. Have a new found passion for monochrome and street photography.

The oceans are being suffocated


In the past decade ocean oxygen levels have taken a dive—an alarming trend that is linked to climate change, says Andreas Oschlies, an oceanographer at the Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research Kiel in Germany, whose team tracks ocean oxygen levels worldwide. “We were surprised by the intensity of the changes we saw, how rapidly oxygen is going down in the ocean and how large the effects on marine ecosystems are,” he says.

Second, as polar sea ice melts, it forms a layer of buoyant water at the sea surface above colder, more saline waters. This process creates a sort of lid that can keep currents from mixing surface water down to deeper depths. And because all oxygen enters this habitat at the surface—either directly from the atmosphere or from surface-dwelling phytoplankton producing it during photosynthesis—less mixing means less of it at depth.

Her preliminary results suggest even small drops in oxygen impair vision in some zooplankton. (This, too, happens in humans, with ev... Show more...
 

US-American hunter pays to shoot rare Pakistani goat


"It was an easy and close shot. I am pleased to take this trophy," he said, according to The Washington Post.

Pakistan banned all local hunting of the goats in 2011, but allowed tourists to shoot 12 male goats per season in "community conservation areas".

The hunting tactic appears to be working, in 2015 the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (ICUN) reclassified the goats from endangered to "near-threatened".

One of the most beautiful encounters I had with owls since I'm in Sweden now, that one was so curious! After it first flew away, it came back even closer after a few minutes and allowed me to take a couple of shots and also some videos :)
