People often ask me why so much of what I post is about trophy hunting, rather than other topics to do with #lions & #conservation. So a short thread on why I engage heavily with this issue - much as I would rather not! (1/n)
Firstly - and sadly, it is the 'threat' that gets far & away the most media attention, despite being one of the lowest-ranked threats to lions according to experts, & the fact it can also have clear benefits, esp habitat conservation. So stressing facts really matters here (2/n)
Here, to remind people, is the graph from a recent paper on key threats to lions. I wish beyond measure that NGOs, the media, public & politicians would focus on some of these key threats, like habitat loss & conflict, but it is all about trophy hunting (TH), so here we are (3/n)

One approach to reducing #HWC and its impacts is to develop tools that promote human-wildlife #coexistence. An eye-catching project conceived by Taronga scientist @HWConflict is one such example. #ScienceWeek PC: Bobby-Jo Vial. Image
By hijacking a common anti-predator signal and applying it in a novel context in #Botswana, the team were able to reduce livestock losses to #lions. nature.com/articles/s4200… PC: Bobby-Jo Vial. Image
The eye-cow approach was very successful in reducing predation by #lions, and Taronga produced detailed “how-to” guides to using the technique with locally available resources, prompting interest and subsequent trials in Peru, USA, India, and Kenya. carnivorecoexistence.info/african-carniv…

#ForeverInOurHearts. In 2020 we said #farewell to some dear friends, Lucho, Junior, Tilin, and Ricardo, we will never forget how they touched our lives and remember them here. #restinpeace #rescuedanimals ImageImageImageImage
LUCHO was saved from a small concrete pen during a dawn raid by #ADI on an #illegalzoo in Peru, in 2015. The friendly #spectacledbear enjoyed five precious years in the forest habitat we provided at @TaricayaE, where he loved to float on his back in his pool.
JUNIOR was #rescued by #ADI in 2014 from a #circus in Colombia, & was one of the 33 #lions we airlifted home to Africa. He was taken from us by cancer at about 9 years old, but got to roam his piece of Africa with brothers Bumba & Zeus at the #ADIWildliifeSanctuary.

Twitter वर दररोज राजकारण,कवीसंमेलन,Memes वरती आपण खुप चर्चा करतो..पण आजचा #Thread खास त्या प्राण्यासाठी आहे ज्याच्या ताकदीचा अंदाज भल्याभल्यांना नाही..ज्या प्राण्याला जंगलामध्ये दुसरा तुल्यबळ प्रतिस्पर्धी नसल्यामुळे त्याला त्याने केलेली शिकार जमिनीवर बसुन मनसोक्तपणे खाता येते.. Image
(इथे वाचकांमध्ये खुप जनांना माहित नसेल कदाचित पण बिबट्याला आपली शिकार झाडावर जाऊन खावी लागते कारण त्याच्या जेवणाचे वाटेकरी आजुबाजुने फिरतचं असतात)..पण आपल्या thread च्या पाहुण्यांचा SWAG ही अलग है!!! त्याचे नाव गाडीच्या एका well known brand ला दिला आहे आणि ती कंपनी भारताचे Image

Thread: This is truly incredible object. Composite #Lion and Bull, bronze, Iran, 1500-1000 BC. clevelandart.org/art/1969.122 The meaning of this object is unknown. It is presumed that it has served as an object of worship in a temple or shrine...Worship of who? Who else. The beast. 🙂 Image
The beast in this case is the hot, dry season, which in Mesopotamia starts at the beginning of May, beginning of summer and ends at the end of October. Image
It spans summer (symbolised by bull) and autumn (symbolised by lion). I talked about the animal symbols of the seasons in this article:

Do you know what inspired the Yogis to come up with many asanas? It was nature, the early yogis were influenced by what was around them. Read - Thread on Yoga!
#Dog - Downward Facing Dog aka Adho Mukha Svanasana. Its a popular pose which is also a part of the Surya Namaskar. This helps to increase flexibility and release tension. If you have dogs around, you would have noticed that dogs stretch their body in this pose.

#Cow Pose aka Bitilasana & #Cat Pose aka Marjariasana. Usually these two are done together. It helps in spine flexibility. The breathing exercise attached with this helps in relaxation. This is common posture in which the cow stands and cat stretches.

Another incident to prove that #ISI knew the 9/11 was popular "Money Man " story of then #ISI DG #MahmudAhmed.

It's important to understand little history before going to this curious case of #ISI funding the 9/11 attacker .
In 1999 #Musharraf unconstitutionally snatched power #Nawaz convenienced his bullies that #Nawaz may cooperate with US to counter Taliban which is against the interest and policy of Pakistan ( He too did same later ).
The other fact was after #kargil loss #NawazSharif had  terminated the commission of Gen #Musharraf and promoted then DG #ISI Gen #Ziauddin as an army chief.
Soon after Gen #Musharraf took over the office , he took back the decision of promoting Gen #Zia and ordered an enquiry.
