MOST RECENT

Thanks to the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority for giving me this lovely silver owl from @hoselton_art_in_aluminum in recognition of my volunteer work with their organization over the years. It would have been tough to make a bat sculpture! It’s a pleasure to work with the #GRCA and can’t wait till we can officially announce this year’s #northumberland #bioblitz2017

'Barry' is the largest male crayfish Todd Walsh has caught in the 40 years he's spent studying the freshwater crustaceans. He was found in a rainforest in Tasmania by Mr Walsh and a team of Year 9 students from Burnie High School.

Canada’s Oceans
Isabelle, biologist at Dalhousie, setting up traps for the HaliBlitz this past September. These were used to collect and document some of the coastal species found along Point Pleasant Park. Today is world fisheries day, and fisheries provide not only a livelihood for millions of people across the globe, but also represent about 15% of our animal protein intake (fish, crustaceans and molluscs). Yet as the UN has reported, over two-thirds of the world’s fisheries are overfished or fully harvested.
This will be one of the topics discussed at Canada's Oceans: Towards 2020, a two day symposium at the @romtoronto in Toronto. Leading ocean scientists, storytellers, Indigenous leaders and government stakeholders will be coming together to explore the status of Canada’s marine conservation programs & our role in protecting the oceans that sustain us. It’s going to be amazing and insightful two days, see the link in my bio for more info. ————————————————————————#canadasoceans #marineconservation #marinelife #oceans #bioblitz #citizenscience #conservation #sharecangeo #bioblitz150 #canada150 #bioblitz2017 #citizenscience #biodiversity #haliblitz #Halifax #novascotia #discovernovascotia #conservationphotography #documentaryphoto #imagesofcanada #natgeoyourshot #natgeocreative #natgeoit

Another fascinating rock formation found near the mud volcano. It's not as shiny but still caught my eye.

Again would any geologists here like to identify and explain?

Just a reminder that you can stand out in your own way. Don't force yourself to fit into a mould.

Remember when I said there were amazing rock formations near the mud volcano? Well this is one of em.

Not sure what it is, but it's shiny. If any of you geologists would like to identify this I'd be grateful.
Just a reminder that even when you're down at your lowest don't be afraid to shine.

Beginilah suasana ketika kami bersama-sama mengidentifikasi katak dan kodok yang kami temukan malam sebelumnya. Katak yang kami temukan berbeda-beda. Ada tim yang mengamati di area sawah dan tepi hutan, ada juga yang di sekitar kebun teh. Beda lokasi, beda juga kodok dan kataknya~

On our way to retrieve the camera traps we stopped off at the nearby mud volcano. It was quite the sight to behold.

It is believed that the mud holds medicinal properties. Whilst I can't attest to that I can say that the rock formations in the area were pretty amazing and the air felt so crisp.

Just a reminder to take time to appreciate the marvels which lie alongside the path to your destination.

#throwback to last week Sunday at Bioblitz 2017 Icacos with the Microbiology team! 🔬🍃🌊#bioblitz2017 #trinidadandtobago #microbiology #outreach #scienceandtechnology #beard #bear

Here's another one of the bats we trapped that night. This little fiesty lady is the Artibeus cinerus or the Gervais fruit eating bat.

You can identify em by those adorable stripes and the yellow tinge around their ears. They're relatively small. Especially compared to the other Artibeus species. However they make up for their size with a huge attitude.

Just a reminder that even if you're small you can make a huge impact on those around you.

This is what it's like handling bats. These pictures were taken within the span of 4 seconds. As much as I love these little guys I also respect them. I understand that despite how soft and cute they are, they are still wild unpredictable animals.

This is the Artibeus literatus also known as the great fruit eating bat. In Trinidad it is classified as the third largest native bat. It can be distinguished by those adorable face stripes and the long stripe which runs down its back.

Just a reminder to show respect to all for even the most silent of persons can harbor the loudest of storms.

Another picture I took en route to basecamp. The early morning sun perfectly illuminated the grasslands. The clouds were so thick and fluffy. It was the perfect way to start my day.

Just a reminder to appreciate the small moments of beauty and nature.

Katak juga menjadi salah satu binatang yang kami amati dan cukup banyak terlihat
.
Terdapat berbagai macam warna dan jenis yang berhasil kami temukan selama di sana.
.
Favoritku adalah katak bertanduk karena motifnya dan bentuknya yang unik.

Hari kedua ketika kami sampai di Cikaniki Research Station untung melengkapi tabel pengamatan, makan siang, dan untuk mempresentasikan tentang pengamatan sebelumnya.
Di sana, aku menemukan katak yang belum pernah kulihat sebelumnya. Jadi aku memutuskan untuk mengambil fotonya, tapi sayangnya aku tidak mengetahui jenis apa kodok tersebut :(

Hari kedua bioblitz, kami mengamati binatang dan tumbuhan. Kami bertemu dengan bunglon yang sedang berdiri sebuah batang pohon. .

Hari kedua bioblitz, kami mengeksplore hutan di pagi hari. Kami mengamati serangga dan tumbuhan. Salah satu yang aku amati adalah jamur ini, menurutku jamur tersebut antimainstream soalnya jamur-jamur lainnya berkelompok, sementara jamur yang satu ini berdiri sendiri. Dan bentuknya yang menyerupai payung membuatnya tambah unik.
