వన్యప్రాణి అంటే మానవుడు మచ్చిక చేసుకోని జంతువులను వన్య ప్రాణులుగా అభివర్ణిస్తారు. నేడు ప్రపంచ వన్యప్రాణుల సంరక్షణ దినోత్సవం సందర్భంగా #WorldwildlifeConservationDay
మృగాల వల్లే మానవ మనుగడ....
క్రూర మృగాలు లేకపోతే మానవ మనుగడే లేదనడం అతిశయోక్తి కాదు.
#Wildlife Image
వన్యప్రాణులు ఒకదానిపై ఒకటి ఆధారపడి జీవనం కొనసాగిస్తాయి. వన్య ప్రాణుల సంఖ్య భూమి మీద విపరీతంగా పెరిగి వినాశనం చోటు చేసుకోకుండా క్రూర మృగాలు వన్య ప్రాణులను వేటాడుతూ పర్యావరణాన్ని సమతూకంలో ఉంచుతాయి. క్రూరమృగాలు తమ జాతి సంతతి పెరగకుండా కూడా తమవంతుగా ముందస్తు చర్యలు తీసుకుంటాయి.
తమ చుట్టు ఉన్నవాటితో సంపర్కం కొనసాగించకుండా సుదీర్ఘ ప్రాంతంలోనున్న క్రూర మృగాలతో సంపర్కం కొనసాగించి మళ్లీ తమ యథాస్థానానికి వచ్చేస్తాయి. ఒక పులి సంవత్సరానికి 52 నుంచి 60 వన్య ప్రాణులను చంపి ఆహారంగా తీసుకుంటుంది. రోజుకు పులి 7 నుంచి 8 కిలోల మాంసాన్ని ఆహారంగా తీసుకుంటుంది.

BREAKING: #BNNKenya Reports.

A male elephant known as Lugard passed away a few weeks after Dida, another well-known female elephant, did.

The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) announced on November 24 that the famous elephant had passed away from old age. #Kenya #Wildlife
We bid farewell to Lugard, one of Tsavo's renowned and majestic Super Tuskers, with a heavy heart, KWS said.

One of Kenya's Super Tuskers named Lugard is said to have passed away on November 21, 2022, in Tsavo West National Park.
Joseph Kimaile, a conservation officer and pilot for the Tsavo Trust, stumbled upon Lugard's three-day-old carcass while touring the park.

"Lugard is without a doubt the father of many elephants of different ages, and many of his kids will probably develop into Super Tuskers...

BREAKING: #BNNCanada Reports.

Two Canadian men are charged with entering a safari park in Quebec and shooting three wild boar and an elk. According to police, on the evening of November 10, Mathieu Godard and Jeremiah Mathias-Polson broke through a barrier at Parc Omega.
When a vehicle driven by the two men entered the park illegally, the security guard who was on duty at the time alerted police. He heard gunshots a short while later.
“The police quickly arrived and located and intercepted a vehicle. Both men were arrested. Police found four animal carcasses inside the vehicle,” said Quebec's provincial police spokesperson Marc Tessier.

We are delighted to welcome Ms. Abhilasha Hegde to #TeamCWS! She joins our Media and Outreach team as Media Fellow.

In her words, "I wish to tell stories which educate various audiences and address urgent concerns about nature and wildlife through my lens and creativity."
"I grew up in an idyllic village tucked deep into the dense forests of the Western Ghats of Karnataka. Since childhood, I've been curious and fascinated about nature and wildlife. I slowly started expressing my nature tales through photography, paintings and other forms of art."
"Even though I graduated as an information science engineer and started my career as a software developer, the curious and creative bug inside me finally dragged me towards finding an opportunity to do something for nature and wildlife in a professional capacity."

The Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972, was a pivotal moment for biodiversity conservation in India. The Act provides legal protection to several species of wild animals and plants, prohibits hunting, supports the establishment of protected areas.

And the Act also regulates the trade of wildlife parts and products. Since the Act was passed 50 years ago, it has had a remarkable impact on Indian wildlife and conservation. It has also been heavily criticised, with the laws having undergone several amendments over time.

As a little thank you to everyone who has decided to hit that “Follow” on my profile, here’s a few tips that you can follow to help attract more #wildlife to your own #garden: 🧵

1. Don’t cut your hedges/bushes at this time of year - birds in particular will eat the berries.
2. Leave some long grass around the edges of your lawn. Many insects/caterpillars in particular will overwinter at the base of this vegetation. You can always cut back in #spring when things warm up.
3. If you feel the need to clear the leaves from your garden, don’t put them in your green bin, make a pile of them in a corner of the garden. Lots of insects again, along with 🦔 will use these piles for cover/shelter.

Freeports and nature some thoughts.
Freeports aren't ports they are large areas of land including in some cases SSI's and National Parks. Some board members of Freeports and directors are local councillors.
#Freeports #Nature #Deregulation #RSPB #Wildlife
Significant areas of natural beauty including Dartmoor, the New Forest, the whole of the Isle of Wight and the North York Moors. They also engulf entire cities such as Derby and Nottingham, Hull, Scunthorpe, and large areas of Liverpool.
The new freeports between them cover around 15,000 to 20,000kms2 – approximately 8% of England’s total surface area.

National park authorities were not consulted before being included in the outer boundary of the new freeports. Changes in planning regulations will affect them.

Sixth post of the #WildlifeWeek Reintroduction series.

Day 6 - Panna Roars Again !!

#Panna National Park covering an area of 543 sq km is a splendid mosaic of plateaus, plunging gorges, vast expanses of teak #forests and #Savannah #grasslands teeming with #wildlife...
1/14 Mahaman from Bandhavgarh
.... and its lifeline Ken river running through the middle. It was upgraded to the status of a tiger reserve in 1994 but within 15 years it lost all its stripes !! The news broke out in May, 2009 that Panna TR which once claimed to harbour 40+ tigers had none left anymore.
2/14
It shook the forest department, the govt and every concerned citizen of the country to its core. Investigations were done on the disappearance of tigers and reports submitted by the WII, SIT setup by the NTCA and by an expert committee initiated by govt of MP.

Fifth post of the #Wildlife Week #Reintroduction Series.

Day 5 – Return of the #Barasingha to #Satpura #Tiger Reserve !!!

Swamp Deer commonly known as Barasingha have three subspecies, Wetland Barasingha, Hardground Barasingha and Eastern Barasingha.
1/12
Once #swamp #deer inhabited areas from Central India to the Godavari river in the south. Currently, they are found in five discrete populations in 3 regions of central, north-east and northern India.
2/12
Before the 1950s, the number of Hard ground Barasingha was estimated to be around 3,000 in Banjar Valley of Kanha National Park (KNP). However, by the 1960s the number had dwindled to a meagre 66 due to expansion of #agricultural activities into barasingha habitats...

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.
1/9
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.
2/9
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.

Third post in the #WildlifeWeek series.

Day 3 - #Rhino resurgence in the #Terai !!

The Greater One-Horned #Rhinoceros is the second largest #mammal in #India after the #Elephant. Its distribution once ranged from the flood plains of the Indus to the Indo-Burmese border.
1/11 Image
However the loss of #grassland #habitat resulted in only a small population remaining in North East India and #Nepal.The species was totally extirpated from the Indian Terai in the 19th century, with the last rhino there being shot in the #Pilibhit Forest Division in 1878.
2/11
Following this extirpation, #Dudhwa National Park was surveyed for its habitat suitability for the species and finally in 1984, the Addl. CWLW U.P was tasked to capture 6 rhinos from the #Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, #Assam by tranquilizing them.

#WildlifeWeek is here. This week I will be sharing 7 #positive wildlife reintroduction stories from around the country. One story for each day. A small thread.
Day 1 - The return of Gaur in Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve !!!
1/7 Image
#Gaur the largest #bovine in peninsular #India, was previously found in three discreet populations in Southern India (Western Ghats and #Nilgiri plateau), Central India (#Vidarbha, southern MP, #Chhattisgarh and Eastern ghats in #Odisha) and North-East India.
2/7
Gaur were historically found in #Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve in small numbers. There were around 30-35 Gaur in BTR in the early 1990s, which had dwindled to just one individual in 1996 and zero in 1998.

Here is a list of 45 #birds, 22 #mammals, and 30 non-avian #reptiles that are CRITICALLY ENDANGERED due to feral or pet #cats
#invasivespecies #conservation #ornithology #BiodiversityCrisis
pnas.org/doi/pdf/10.107… Image
first off, I'd like to highlight that "feral #cats on islands are responsible for at least 14% global #bird, #mammal, and reptile extinctions and are the principal threat to almost 8% of critically endangered birds, mammals, and reptiles"
onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/epdf/10.11…
AND within our own lifetimes, North America has lost more than one in four of its birds. These are not all critically endangered now, but these trends are pointing to #extinction

Do you purport to care about #conservation? Keep your damn cats indoors and minimize their threat to #birds, #mammals, & lizards.

#cats that are allowed to roam outside, feral or otherwise, are a major threat to our #wildlife and #biodiversity.
There’s fantastic studies on the threat to #wildlife that outdoor #cats pose in Australia. But don’t be fooled into thinking this problem is restricted to just Australia—#feral and free roaming cats are contributing to millions of wildlife deaths every year in the USA.
Thanks to @tiredguineapig for highlighting these fantastic Infographs in a recent tweet. We need these for Europe and the US!

A dot to dot in dairy farming 🐮 A🧵

1. A cow is inseminated (mostly artificially) and a calf is born

#DitchDairy #VeganLandMovementCIC #Vegan #Wildlife #extinction #climate #ClimateEmergency
2. The calf is taken & either killed within 48 hours, sent to become veal or fattened up for 'beef' or in the case of females to become a future milk production line.
3. Female cows are milked en masse daily and then slaughtered when they can no longer produce. Their lives are short and horrific.

Have you ever thought about how we monitor #wildlife? In this thread🧵 I will explain my #PhDthesis

#CREAF20K #cameratraps #mammals #conservation
Traditional methods of studying wildlife were based on direct observation of animals🧐🔭.
However, the technological boom of recent decades has also changed the way of monitoring wildlife. Do you want to know how?
Keyword is #cameratrap 📸!!
#Cameratraps are remotely activated cameras by an infrared sensor. When an animal passes in front of them, they record photos. Cameras operate with batteries and SD cards, we can place them in remote areas. Finally, animals don't react to them and showed their habitual behaviour
