Image: Sivilingam & R. Prakash / 3rd Prize - The Sanctuary Wildlife Photography Awards 2010 // Not many people have seen a black a #leopard in the #wild. Fewer still have photographed one. And virtually no image has ever been taken before of a pair-bonded female black leopard and a 'normal' coloured male. This was taken in the #Nilgiris but we are not revealing the exact location as this would almost certainly prompt an avalanche of #photographers to reach the spot, endangering the tranquillity that is the leopards’ protection.

I took this photograph on a trawling boat on the east coast of India. Every year, large numbers of turtles get caught in long-line nets set out by fishermen. Fearing prosecution by the forest department for catching a protected species, the fishermen throw the turtles back into the ocean. On this day, only 3 out of the 11 were alive when tossed back in. Thinking of these turtles and the protection they deserve today on World Turtle Day.

When the #woods go, #wildlife goes. And with it, us. It's really that simple.

Hey folks. This is an out of the ordinary post of a screenshot to commemorate an exciting evening for Sharon Guynup and I. Tonight we're attending the Society of Professional Journalists The Deadline Club awards ceremony. Sharon and I are finalists in the Magazine Investigative Journalism category for the Tiger Temple story Sharon wrote and the accompanying video I shot and co-produced with Sharon. The story was an exclusive on @NatGeo's Wildlife Watch blog.
I also want to mention Sharon was also the winner of the 2017 Arlene Award “for an article that makes a difference” from the American Society of Journalists and Authors for this same story.
Sharon wrote 4 stories on this topic for @natgeo and never gave up until all 147 tigers were confiscated and the temple’s tiger operations were shut down.

We’ll find out if we won tonight at the Harvard Club, but regardless this is an incredible honor and we're excited to meet so many people doing such important work! Click on the link in my bio to read the story and stay tuned. I might even post an even rarer photo of myself!

Drops of gold in endless shadow-lands of grass. A serval cat finds the first ray of light on a typical African morning. #wildlfephotography #wildlife #africa #tanzania #serengeti #bbctravel #instagood #instalike #nature #natgeo #love #serval #cat

Image: Manish Vaidya / Entry - The Sanctuary Wildlife Photography Awards 2016 // In the sandy #desert and semi-arid rocky terrain of Jaisalmer, creatures of the night such as #scorpions emerge when the sun goes down. The #photographer , fascinated by the unique property of these #arachnids which #luminesce under #ultraviolet light, captured the scorpion perfectly in a wide-angle frame with an arm of the Milky Way illuminating the background.

Image: Zeeshan Mirza (@zeeshan_a_mirza ) // A #female #trapdoor #spider Phlogiodes validus lunges out of its burrow to grab its #prey at the Aarey Milk Colony, #Mumbai. These #spiders are one of the least-studied #arachnids on the planet and given that most remain hidden from the world, it makes them most susceptible to land use changes and alteration of habitat.

Over 50 of the 300 odd #species of #flora found in this Indian #savannah are endemic to the montane grasslands of the Western Ghats. This treasured #landscape holds the largest remaining population of the Nilgiri tahr.

For many #marine enthusiasts, their love for the #ocean comes coupled with a love for #seafood, served with a hot dollop of guilt. Addressing this issue that weighs heavy on morality, the Know Your Fish initiative encourages consumers to make informed choices when it comes to eating #fish.

Speaking to Sanctuary, Pooja Rathod one of the founders of the initiative articulates the need for sustainable #seafood consumption. “People are familiar with seasonality when it comes to fruits and vegetables. However, only a handful of us think of fish as #animals with lives, that compete and cooperate, breed and migrate. Do we think of seasonality when we eat or buy fish?” she questions. “The belief that the only time we are supposed to stay off seafood is during the monsoon, no longer holds true. There is no single #breeding season for all species of fish; different fish breed at different times of the year”, says Rathod.
