On your marks... get set... GO! This swamp wallaby is ready to race you - you'd better limber up, she's a fast hopper! @cesaref came face to face with this marsupial at the Basin Campground in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, just a short drive north of @sydney. This campsite is known as one of the best places in #Sydney to spot kangaroos and wallabies, so even if you're not keen to camp overnight, it's worth heading out there for a day trip. #nationalpark #ilovesydney #wallaby #wildlife #australia

What a difference a day makes... #yosemite #nationalpark

#Reflection. Looking back so the view looking forward is even clearer. #MountGould and #SwiftcurrentLake by Mark Stevens via @sierraclub.

#Zion #NationalPark in #Utah boasts some of the most scenic landscapes in the southwestern U.S. Within its 229 square miles are high plateaus, a maze of deep sandstone canyons and the gorgeous Virgin River. The soft scents of pine and juniper drift on the air. A winter #sunset coloring the sky above this dramatic scene is an unforgettable experience.

Guards at Kaziranga National Park in #India are trained to shoot first and ask questions later. This controversial tactic has helped protect thousands of one-horned #Rhinos who live in the #park.

50 people have been killed so far and each person was attempting to get a Rhino horn. On the #blackmarket the horns are worth as much as $6000 for 100 grams.
-
When the park was first founded a century ago there was only a small number of Rhinos. Now the park holds more than 2,400, which is two-thirds of the world’s population. More people were shot dead by the park’s guards in 2015 than rhinos were by poachers.

We need to adopt more sustainable ways and protect our environment, not only for our own health, but for the wellbeing of #future generations. What are your thoughts?

Another reason to love coastal forest in New Zealand: you're never too far from an excellent view of turquoise waters.

#Fastnacht in #Franken in #Veitshöchheim, vier #Grüne vor Ort, links bin ich als Holla, die #Waldfee auf der Suche nach dem geeigneten Platz für einen#Nationalpark in Franken ( #Steigerwald, #Spessart oder #Rhön), unser Fraktionsvorsitzender Ludwig Hartmann als Sebastian Reich mit #Amanda , unsere Fraktionsvorsitzende Katharina Schulze als #Europa und unsere Parteivorsitzende Sigi Hagl als Göttin #Demeter. Gut zusammenpassendes #Quartett, finde ich!
