Okay folks as we seem to be heading in to some warm dry weather we need to talk about #bees and #water.

Please #retweet this to provide bees a helping hand. Thanks


Given that they can collect water, their nectar based diet and their ability to generate…
…large amounts of water metabolically during flight #bumblebees are less prone to dehydration/desiccation than most terrestrial insects.

However they still need safe access to water.

Research suggests that #bees locate sources of #water by smell rather than sight.
#water is a source of essential #nutrients for #bees and this explains their preference for ‘dirty’ water sources containing organic matter, algae etc.

Indeed #honeybees have the ability to and will change their preferred source of #water to an alternative in order to…

#Virginia has once again failed 1) #elephant🐘#Asha & 2) the issue of public safety (HB2483).

The personal ‘wants’ of a few were favored over public safety & the needs of a captive wild #animal.
.@MichaelWebert You have said:

“Life is easy when you’re a Democrat politician because you can twist whatever legislation you want to fit your narrative.”

With all due respect, you did just that in response to HB2483. 2/
.@MichaelWebert Your remarks & those in opposition to the bill were *personal, emotional, not based in science*.

Ironically, these are words used to invalidate concerned citizens when advocating for animal welfare issues and public safety concerns. 3/

Fourth post in the #WildlifeWeek series. Today’s post is more of a #reviving one than #reintroduction.

Day 4 – Return of the #bandits to #Chambal !

The Red Crowned Roofed #turtle is a #species of #freshwater turtle endemic to South #Asia.
Historically the species was widespread in the #Ganga River, both in #India and #Bangladesh. Extirpated from most of its former range but currently it has dwindled a last surviving population of less than 500 adult individuals in the #wild.
Their population reduced drastically due to depredation of eggs and hatchlings by Golden #jackals, #habitat degradation due to #pollution and illegal sand mining in the floodplains. They are also extensively #poached for their meat and shell.

Short answer:
1/🍯 bee, APIS genus, is one species among 20,000 ones,
2/ They carry out 13 works in 40 days, starting with nurturers, carpenters...storekeepers...Foragers are those who're more than 28 days old, follow the last ones, adventurers.

3/ No hierarchy, always collective interests, real #socialists,
4/ No obligations, some are lazy, will only practice one job,
5/ It's 1000 flowers per day & per forager, i.e. 4 times around the 🌍 for 1kg of 🍯, Earth-Venus for 300kg, thus spreading life.

8/ In 30 years their population failes down by 80%
9/ They were named as "The most important animal on 🌍"

#Bee Twitter - I put up a thread last Sunday about queen #bumblebees this time of year and how to help - thanks to you it got 800k+ impressions meaning tens of thousands of people are better ‘bee informed’.
Can we do it again?
PLEASE RETWEET this new thread to help save more 1/9
#queens. Bumblebees don’t understand glass - they get confused and trapped and exhausted. Likewise with polytunnel plastic. So if you see or hear a #bumblebee buzzing & banging against your window she’s not trying to get into your house to hang with you - she’s confused. 2/9
If she’s already inside your house and is buzzing at the window she’s trapped. So you need to get her out &
as quickly as you can - don’t leave her suffer while you do something else. Why?
#Bumblebees with a full stomach have about 40 minutes of ‘energy’ in them before they 3/9

So one of the biggest complaints I've seen from #Flyers fans over their efforts this season, is "they get scored on a lot, right after scoring".

So let's find out if this is true...
#FlyersTalk #AnytimeAnywhere
Through 28 games in 2020-21, the #Flyers have been scored on 18 times within 5 minutes of scoring a goal.
- 12 of those goals against came within 2min of scoring
- 4 of them came within 1min of scoring
- 2 of them came within 30 seconds of scoring
#FlyersTalk #AnytimeAnywhere
How does this compare to the rest of the league?

Most goals conceded within 5 minutes of scoring:
1. #Oilers - 28
2. #Caps - 22
3. #Leafs - 20
4. #Flames - 19
5. #Flyers/#GoldenKnights - 18

and the fewest:

31. #Stars/#Ducks - 4
29. #Sharks - 6
28. #Bruins - 7
27. #Kings - 8

Clip recap of today's student protest that is now a physical occupation of the Vice Chancellors office, and still ongoing.
Organiser @opinionatedleft is calling themselves #occupyf23
No police response. #auspol #nswpol
1/ Students march to the Vice Chancellery building
2/ Protestors reach the building and begin banging on the doors and windows that require security passes, or security to let them in.
3/ Students storm the Vice Chancellery building, having been passed in.
Security overwhelmed and impotent.
No police response, one unit a quarter mile away, PO&R already left.

For @FolkloreThurs’s #wild men theme: in #Tolkien’s hapless Túrin Turambar 3 myths collide: Kullervo (Finnish), Sigurd (Old Norse) + Oedipus (Greek). Oedipus is important not only for the incest motif
#FolkloreThursday @TolkienSociety
Art: @TedNasmith, Akseli Gallen-Kallela
but also because of his movement from wilderness to city. Abandoned as an infant in Mount Cithaeron (wilderness), Oedipus moves from Corinth (city), to the cross-roads (wilderness, where he unwittingly kills his father)...
#FolkloreThursday @FolkloreThurs @TolkienSociety
to Thebes (city- where he unwittingly marries his mother), to self-exile in desolate spaces away from the city. He is the saviour, but also the destroyer of Thebes, via his patricide and incest. 3/6

Recovered by our officials Mr Hasnain & Mr Naeem from illegal possession of teenager vendor boy in Karachi, (given chance on promise & production of surety bond for not doing same again). These baby Crocs have been safely released in their 'Sanctuary' where there is abundant 1/4
food i.e insects, crustaceans small fish & safe surrounds.
In #wild female croc reach sexual maturity up to 6 years (length 1.5 to 2 meters) whereas in case of male it is 10 yrs when it reaches almost 2.5m length.
Female lays 10 to 46 eggs that hatch within 55 to 70 days. 2/4
The baby Crocs hv only 10% survival rate in wild. Mothers r very aggressive care takers of babies. The attack in case of any danger to eggs or hatchlings & some time may take hatched babies in jaw to take them at safer sites. The Crocs have been victims of misunderstanding. 3/4

BREAKING: House Interior Approps bill is out! The good: The subcommittee rejected the President’s budget request for $15.3 mill in additional funding for the WHB Program. The bill continues to prohibit the slaughtering of #wildhorses and burros. #appropriation #freewildhorses Image
The bad: the draft bill would result in Congress handing the Bureau $42 mill in additional #taxpayer funds over 2019 budget levels with no hard requirements to prevent the agency from spending all the funds to #roundup and stockpile #wildhorses and to surgically sterilize them.
These are the first installments on the Bureau’s multi-billion dollar proposal to cull #wildhorse populations back to #extinction levels, a plan that will push the program off the fiscal cliff, inevitably resulting in the mass #slaughter of America’s nat'l icons. #stoptheroundups

Welcome back to another episode of the #WildAboutFacts series. Today, we are taking over your feed with pictures and #trivia of one of the most alluring creatures from the #wild, the #RedPanda.

Join us, share your #photographs of the #Firefox of the #Himalayas.

📷Sourav Mondal

Its distinctive fur has earned this species monikers such as #Firefox, Firecat, or Fire-coloured Cat. Arguably, the #RedPanda is the only true #Panda, as the #GiantPanda, which is believed to be closely related, belongs to the #bear family.

📷Senthil Murugan

Around half of the #RedPanda’s natural habitat lies in the Eastern #Himalayas#Nepal, #Sikkim, northern #WestBengal, #Bhutan, and #ArunachalPradesh.

Its remaining home is in northern #Myanmar and a few provinces of central #China.

I #linger dockside, watching laborers load ideas into the ship’s hold for their dangerous trip across the astral sea.

Waiting for my opportunity to stow away and sail into the starry night.

I crawl up the rope from the far pier to the ship’s deck and climb over the rail. Glance around quickly, then duck down the stairs to the hold.

My eyes adjust and I see dreams stored neatly for their trip across the sea of night. I’m seeking #haven from nightmares.

Hidden in the hold, I feel the ship move as the ropes let loose. The mystical tide pulls us out to sea. We rise into the night.

The ship begins to pitch and roll, as a #wild psychic storm passes over. The hatch slams shut above me.
