A golden jackal (Canis aureus) roadkill. My first report to #RoadkillsApp by @wctindia. In Delhi there are small pockets of Forests that serves as an inviolate space for Wildlife to survive and thrive in whatever space they got. Only when they try to move out of it, this mishap happens. Got this one near Dhaulakuan metro station, Delhi, maybe it tried to venture out of its safe haven and unfortunately got caught in the busy night traffic of Dhaulakuan. I really wonder how many Delhiites will even know that we share space with them. #CitizenScience#Roadkills#forest#urbanjungle#aravallis#wildcanine#goldenjackal#jackal@wctindia@wwfindia@roadkillsindia@wii_dehradun@citizensciencemag@global_wildlife_conservation@conservation_conversation

Caught in the act!! — Predation of porcupine by honey badger captured on camera trap — you can read all about it in Biodiversity Observations — “One morning in late November 2017, observers passing a known porcupine (Hystrix africaeaustralis) den witnessed an adult porcupine entering followed by a juvenile (‘porcupette’). We set a camera trap (Bushnell Trophy Cam Essential 119636) to observe the entrance of the den, and from this we learned there were in fact two resident porcupettes” ....for the rest of the story follow the link in our bio (http://thebdi.org/blog/2019/03/21/predation-of-porcupine-by-honey-badger/) ———————————————————————— #biodiversityobservations#ejournal#mammalmap#cameratrapping#bushnelltrailcam#citizenscience#porcupine#honeybadger#nature#bushnelltrailcameras@bushnelloptics_sa

Today, the 22nd of March, is World Water Day. I wanted to use this as an opportunity to shine a light on plastic water bottles. Drinking water is a human right, yet 2.1-billion people worldwide are living without safe water. For those lucky enough to live in areas with access to safe drinking water, bottled water is still a commonly used product with sales at an all-time high. Bottled water costs around 2,000 times the amount of tap water, so why is there a huge demand for it globally? In the 1970s giant soft drinking companies started to worry that consumers were starting to clock on that drinking soda wasn’t a healthy option, and companies worried they would turn back to tap water. So, they moved over to bottled water. Most of the purified water sales come from the three largest producers of bottled water: Coca-Cola (maker of Dasani), Pepsi (maker of Aquafina), and Nestl ́e(maker of PureLifeand). Originally laughed at by consumers, they used clever marketing campaigns to convince us that tap water was dirty, and it worked. Turns out, a lot of bottled water comes from the same resources but just disguised with misleading pictures of beautiful fountains and springs. One easy and cost-effective way to save on water is to ditch bottled water. For example, it takes 22 gallons of water to make one pound of plastic. It takes at least twice as much water to produce a plastic water bottle compared to the amount of water actually in the bottle. Bottled water also has harmful effects on the human body. A recent study found 93% of the 259 water bottles analyzed tested had some form of microplastic contamination in the water. So why are we paying 2,000 times the price for something that is free, bad for us and the environment? Carry a reusable, non-plastic bottle and re-fill it!

Die Probensammel-Saison ist eröffnet! Ab jetzt heißt es wieder „Sample das Saarland“: online registrieren, Probensammel-Kit erhalten und damit eine Bodenprobe ans HIPS senden. Damit die Forscher noch mehr faszinierende Bodenbakterien wie zum Beispiel das Myxobakterium „Chondromyces crocatus“ entdecken können. Im Video ist zu sehen, wie sich tausende Bakterienzellen zusammentun, um komplizierte Strukturen zu bilden. In diesen sogenannten Fruchtkörpern können Bakteriensporen auch schlechte Zeiten lange überstehen. Die im Erdboden lebenden Myxobakterien sind außerdem eine wichtige Quelle von Wirkstoffen für die Entwicklung neuer Medikamente. #forschung#wissenschaft#saarbrücken#saarland#sampledassaarland#citizenscience http://hips.saarland/sample

A Tambja abdere #nudibranch crawls along a shallow #reef near #lapazmexico . Despite causing a missed day of diving and some changed plans, the winds that La Paz experience this time of year bring upwelling, pushing the warm surface water out allowing cold nutrient-rich water to rise from the deep. Animals such as nudibranchs thrive in these cold upwellings. Thank you to @pfa_carlos, @itstheearl, @mansonfotos, @saltystamps, and everyone in the UABCS PFA group for making this such an amazing trip! I can’t wait to return to Baja to keep exploring!

I spent this afternoon representing Parenting Science Gang at a conference organised by the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine. It was a great afternoon telling academics and researchers why they should consider utilising citizen scientists and the research that the SANP-PSG did looking at the body temperature of babies when they’re in slings. I also got to have a quick walk around York (including passing by the building that 9 years and two days ago I got married in!). #parentingsciencegang#citizenscience#citizenscientist#babywearing#evidencebasedparenting#mumsafternoonoff#yorkcity#york#thehospitiumyork

TGIFF! Thank Goodness it's FROG FRIDAY!!! :D Today we are featuring the Striped Stream Frog (Strongylopus fasciatus). The Striped Stream Frog inhabits a variety of vegetation types in the Forest, Fynbos, Thicket, Grassland and Savanna biomes. It occurs in well-watered areas with annual rainfall >500 mm, and it is rarely found far from permanent waterbodies. It ranges mainly through the summer-rainfall region, but extends into the winter rainfall region in the south-west. Breeding takes place mainly in winter, and seems to be associated with a drop in temperature. The first calls are usually heard in mid- to late February, but there are records of calling as early as January. In Swaziland, peak calling occurs in March, April and May, and calling activity ceases in November. Outside the winter months, sporadic calling may be triggered by a cold front moving through the subcontinent. The photo shown here is from the FrogMAP database. Please submit your froggy photos to FrogMAP at http://vmus.adu.org.za/ and help us to map these amazing amphibians! #frogfridays#conservation#citizenscience#amphibians#biodiversity#frogging#environment#friyay#hopintotheweekend#southafrica@amphibiansurvivalalliance#frogmap

We've crunched the numbers & today we will be sharing some facts about our Sea Turtle Beach Patrol from fall 2018! Fact #1: We had our biggest team of volunteers EVER in 2018, with 29 participants. Our program is growing fast. In 2017, we had 13 participants, and in 2016 (the first year of the program), we had 11 participants.

As the residence of the Hapsburg emperors from the 18th century to 1918, Schonbrunn Palace served as a dazzling symbol of the House of Hapsburg’s wealth and power. The palace began as a grand hunting lodge, commissioned by Leopold I from architect Johann Bernhard Fisher von Erlach in 1693. However, by the mid 18th century, Nicolaus Pacassi extended the lodge into a palatial summer residence. The gardens of the palace serve as an almost organic extension of the building and boasted the world’s first zoo in 1752. Overall, Schonbrunn is a remarkable Baroque example of gesamtkunstwerk, or a work of art that employs many different art forms. ⠀ Image Credit: Google Earth⠀ #GlobalXplorer#XploretheWorld#Culture#Heritage#Archaeology#citizenscience#citizenarchaeology#culturalheritage#Hapsburg#Schonbrunn#huntinglodge#LeopoldI#JohannBernhardFishervonErlach#NicolausPacassi#gardens#zoo#18thcentury#Baroque#gesamtkunstwerk

Let me start by saying I think this Texas cave scorpion (Pseudouroctonus reddelli) looks bigger in this photo than it actually was in real life. This individual was about 40 millimeters (~1.5 inches) long which turns out is pretty standard for this species when not found in a cave. And yeah, among the cool things to know about Texas cave scorpions is, contrary to what their name would imply, they aren’t always found in caves. I found this one under a log on a fairly untravelled section of the greenbelt a little ways up from Barton Springs Pool. However, as its name does imply, it's endemic to Texas meaning it isn’t found anywhere else outside the state. Its range is actually limited to a little half-moon shape that runs along the Balcones Escaprment from Georgetown to Del Rio. #scorpionsofinstagram#scorpion#scorpionidae#arachnid#arachnidsofinstagram#texas#texascavescorpion#nativetexas#texasnature#bartoncreekgreenbelt#atx#naturalist#citizenscience#hikingaustin#hikeaustin

Don't you miss the verdant greens of the wet season, when water flowed freely on
Don't you miss the verdant greens of the wet season, when water flowed freely on campus and the vegetation seemed so alive, just like in this photo of one of our campus streams? Today is World Water Day, a perfect time to reflect on the value of water. Water is the basis for all life as we know it and yet sometimes we take it for granted! Let's not be fooled into thinking that water will never run out from the tap (and there's nothing like a water interruption to show us how precious and finite clean water is)! Let's work harder to protect our watersheds and to be more mindful of our water consumption to ensure that there is enough water for everyone and that no one gets left behind!

NEW PAPER in Biodiversity Observations! -- Oystercatcher distribution dynamics -- The African Black Oystercatcher Haemetopus moquini is not considered a Red-listed species globally or regionally but this endemic and iconic bird was expected to decline due to a variety of anthropogenic and natural influences. It used to be considered ‘Near-threatened’ regionally. However, due to conservation efforts and the spread of the alien Mediterranean Mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis, the regional population has increased (Taylor et al. 2015). These changes in distribution are evident in this paper and explained in more detail: http://thebdi.org/blog/2019/03/21/oystercatcher-distribution-dynamics/ #biodiversityobservations#oystercatchers#birdlife#citizenscience#conservation#seabirds#southafrica#biodiversity#africa#science#environment#birds#ocean#bythesea

Science communication is an important component of science and conservation. One of the huge challenges we face as communicators is how reach communities and groups that have limited access to the internet, other educational resources and even the outdoor environment. @shamier_ocean and his co-founders started @sea_the_bigger_picture to get kids into the water, exploring, asking questions, understanding what conservation means to their own communities and to the rest of the world. We were thrilled to read this article about Shamier in @menshealthza this month as this type of inclusive conservation effort needs more support and attention! He's also been recognised by @beautifulnewssa in one of their brilliant videos. Link in bio! Way to go, guys! We're rooting for you 💯!!! . . . #seathebiggerpicture#fridayfeels#freedivers#freediving#freediver#citizenscience#conservation#conservationeducation#communityovercompetition#collaboration#communityfirst#wildlifeconservation#explorationbelongstoeveryone#exploreza#exploringtheworld#capetown#capetownlife#capetownsouthafrica#southafrica#ubuntu#scientists#scicomm#scienceteacher#scienceiscool#outsiders#outdooradventures#playoutside#argonautscience

Day 22/#marchmeetthemaker /Proud. Being asked to participate in the @rspb_love_nature#BigGardenBirdWatch TV advert was an epic moment last year. I'm still not sure where I got the guts to say 'yes'. I'm an introvert, hate having my photograph taken, and never had a hankering to be on TV. It was an amazing experience, and for a cause I'm passionate about. Proud to be a small part amongst a group of other positive, enthusiastic people promoting connection to nature.
