Happy Earth Day to our beautiful planet and Mother Nature. Every being has a place on this Earth and it is our duty to protect our home together and cherish and love them as our equals. You don’t have to be like me and work in conservation to be a conservationist. At its very core, it’s a mentality that living things and our natural world are beautiful and worth fighting for. 🌎

Did you know that the word panda is said to come from the Nepali word ‘ponya,’ which means bamboo or plant eating animal? 🎋

WINTER HAS COME! Did you guys watch Game of Thrones? ❄️🤩
.
Some people think that penguins all live on ice and need the cold, but this simply isn’t true! There are 17 species of penguins and some of these live near the equator. The rockhopper, as pictured above, can be found on shorelines above Antarctica and fun fact: their yellow eyebrows are called ‘supercilium’. Supercilium can be found on many birds and is the term used to describe striped plumage that runs from the base of a bird’s beak above its eye and ends towards the back of its head.

Have you ever wondered how birds migrate? To be honest, it’s not fully understood because there are so many different mechanisms in play. One technique is through aligning themselves to the Earth’s magnetic field. It’s a superpower if you ask me and the wonderful Will of @bad_zoology_ has written a great post for Fight for Wildlife exploring all things magnetic. CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO.  I’m so excited for you guys to read it. 🖤😘

Wow thank you guys for hitting the 1000 followers mark! This started off with me buying a cheap camera to go to Tanzania on a field trip last summer and I didn’t get my first DSLR until Christmas. I didn’t even start posting my own photos til January because I’m not a wildlife photographer, just a behavioural biologist with a blog and a mission. The fact that we’ve hit four digits is so rad and god social media is hard work!! It’s fab that you guys are responding to my photography and my writing; your messages and support are rewarding. 🥰
Keep fighting the fight for our planet guys, be the difference that we need to see. 😘🌎💪

It is often said that lemurs can only be found on the island of Madagascar. However, this isn’t entirely true. Whilst a vast majority of lemurs are only in Madagascar, there are a few species and subspecies that can also be found on the nearby Comoro Islands.

One day there will be a lemur emoji but until then, the striped raccoon tail will do. 🦝🦝

“How it is that animals understand things, I do not know, but it is certain that they do understand. Perhaps there is a language which is not made of words and everything in the world understands it. Perhaps there is a soul hidden in everything and it can always speak, without even making a sound, to another soul.

NEW ON THE BLOG: ‘Wildlife selfies: think twice’
.
Given the recent news of that woman getting clawed by a jaguar leaning over zoo barriers, I’ve decided to write a little article about the wonderful/terrible (75% terrible) world of wildlife selfies and people taking things way too far! Click the link in my bio to read it. ☺️
.
I know this isn’t a selfie, but what does it make you feel seeing a picture of me with a wreathed hornbill? It’s easy to make quick judgements but we really need to think about context and when things are ok/not ok. Especially when we are taking or going to be in the photos! This hornbill was rescued from the illegal wildlife trade and sadly cannot be reintroduced. I had the pleasure of meeting him while I was at a bird centre in Indonesia that captive breeds Bali mynas for wild release. If you haven’t read my previous posts, this is a species that I worked closely with and I am currently writing a paper on the effects that GPS tagging has on the species. 🥰

Butterflies (and moths) are indicator species. They can be used as an indicator of a healthy environment because areas rich in butterflies also tend to be rich in other invertebrates. They are also an important part of the food chain as they are food for bats, birds and other insect eating species. And they are so beautiful, with unique markings used for camouflage and mate attraction!
.
This one is an owl butterfly, named after the circle at the bottom of its wings that are designed to look like owl eyes peeking out of a hollow cavity when against tree bark.

Tigers have five different types of whiskers located on various points of their bodies. Their whiskers have extremely sensitive nerve endings that help them to navigate and detect changes in their surroundings. They are used to detect where to make the kill bite to the prey’s carotid artery and then afterwards the cheek and mystacial whiskers are moved forward to see if the pulse of their prey has gone.
