  • Photo by @iantehphotography | The Kuala Selangor Nature Park in Malaysia has a total area of 2.4 square kilometers, a compact reserve of wetland and secondary forest on either side of a man-made coastal bund. Malaysia's deforestation rate is one of the fastest in the world. I wondered how Malaysia calculates its forest cover, and I recently spoke to conservation biologist Adam Kamal, who explained: "The percentages given are often based on land status and not actual ground cover; timber rubber plantations can actually be considered as permanent reserved forests.” The estimated forest cover today is between 50% and 55%; the UN FAO has noted that these estimates include palm plantations. Kamal believes the current forest cover is lower than the quoted figure. The official estimates are “inaccurate," he says. "Forests in Malaysia have been under extreme anthropogenic pressure. Most forests that are left to be wild are in various states of degradedness, none of which function or harbor the same communities of organisms that were historically there prior to disturbance. In some secondary forest sheer biodiversity is actually higher, but the species reflected in this heightened biodiversity tend to be ruderal (weedy species) or common.” #naturereserve #deforestation #malaysia

  • В минувшие выходные состоялся выезд в Калужские Засеки. Поездка была плодотворной и интересной.

"Долго ждала погоды для съемки зубров, а ее нет и нет. Решилась поехать без нее и не пожалела. Компания подобралась хорошая и душевная. А съемка вышла оригинальней. Об этом  подробней чуточку позже. Люблю такие поездки не только из-за съемки, но из за разговоров. Можно обсудить все стили, сюжеты, обмыть косточки всем фото системам:) и в разговоре пришли к выводу, что никто из нас не любит фототуры. Не любит из-за ограничения некой свободы творчества. Разговоры были долгими, интересными и познавательными. И вот приехали мы к зубрам. Какое же было мое удивление, что мне предоставили выбор точки съемки. Только не путайте ограничения, связанные с техникой безопасности, все таки зубр животное непредсказуемое и опасное. Мы смогли поснимать животных с разных ракурсов, выполнили все творческие задачи и напоследок бонус в виде  ночной съемки. ребята установили свет, осталось только сидеть и ждать прихода зубров. Это было незабываемо и кратковременно. Непогода внесла свои коррективы, звук падающих деревьев напугал не только животных, но и нас и мы быстренько рванули в теплый домик. Был еще один день съемки и были возможности и все это благодаря нашим ребятам, Виталию и Игорю. Спасибо большое!" Ещё напоминаем, что ближайшая поездка в этом году 1-2 февраля.
Скорее всего она будет финальной для этого сезона.Не тяните 😉. #калужскиезасеки #засеки #фотосъемка #фототурвыходногодня #турвыходногодня #туризм #зубр #заповедник #зубковигорь  #осень #животные #живаяприрода #природа #приключения #animal #wildanimals #wildlifephotography #wildlife #europeanbison #bison #nikon #natgeo #natgeoru #naturereserve

  • No filters. It really was this beautiful today.  Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy decimated this part of the coastline however and it has struggled to regenerate. Part of a sand bar and cove has disappeared altogether. 🇺🇲
Looking out across this incredible bay from where we stood in Sandy Hook (an old, disused military base and now a nature reserve) to Staten Island and the skyline of Manhattan way beyond in the far distance, it got me thinking. Thinking again about all those affected by the 9/11 disaster. I've done that a lot in the past few days.
🇺🇲
We've both reflected on the horror of those awful events almost nineteen years ago as we sat in Brooklyn taking in the downtown skyline of the Financial District. As we scurried through biblical rains to see for ourselves the monument erected at the site of the WTC. As I remembered the rawness and emotional potency of the site when I had visited in 2004. 🇺🇲
We visited High Point and its viewing area and the plaque shared how people would come and watch the still smouldering skyline, following the destruction of the World Trade Centre twin towers, not just on 11th September but for many days after.  Still in shock. Disbelieving. Numb. Probably scared. 🇺🇲
Middletown had the most number of lives lost within a town and it was sobering to see these names marked on the High Point memorial - a structure of marble and stone. An eagle, clutching a brutally contorted girder, salvaged with care and brought from the wreckage of the twin towers to be immortalised.
🇺🇲
Aside from reflections, the day has been about sharing with family, appreciating the outdoors and planning a rough guide to the next stage of our American adventure - one of which will be me driving in another country! #100ScaryDays

  • ✨ No I’m not currently here, but a year ago I was!! I remember visiting our good friend up here last February  and it was mild so very mild for the time of year and I was 20 weeks pregnant and out walking lots and eating lots !! It’s such a beautiful part of Britain, very different to the rugged hilly country and coast we are used to down here.......... 👣📷✨ #jennymackiephotography #TravelBritain

  • 🔥¿Cuál es el problema con los incendios? 🌱¿Cómo nos ayudan los parques ecológicos?
⠀
Los efectos de los incendios pueden tener un profundo efecto en la vida de un planeta entero. 🌏
⠀
El incendio más grande en 2020 es un incendio en Australia.  Él trajo gran destrucción.  Lugares destruidos de la vida animal, personas murieron, pueblos incendiados.
La razón de esto fue la sequía debido al calentamiento global. 🌡
⠀
Para evitar esto, necesitamos crear parques ecológicos.  Estos hermosos lugares llenos de bosques ayudarán a reducir la concentración de CO2 en la atmósfera, lo que significa que tendremos algo para respirar y el nivel del agua en el océano será normal.  Un ejemplo es Hagia Sofia.  Jardín del Edén, lleno de árboles de hoja perenne, flores, mariposas y pájaros raros.
⠀
En tales parques, ocurre un verdadero milagro: la preservación de criaturas increíbles y la posibilidad de nuestra existencia. 😇

🔥What is the problem with fires?
🌱How do eco-parks help us?
⠀
The effects of fires can have a profound effect on the life of an entire planet. 🌏
⠀
The largest fire in 2020 is a fire in Australia.  He brought great destruction.  Destroyed places of animal life, people died, villages burned down.
The reason for this was drought due to global warming. 🌡
⠀
To avoid this, we need to create eco parks.  These beautiful places full of forests will help in reducing the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere, which means that we will have something to breathe, and the water level in the ocean will be normal.  One example is Hagia Sofia.  Garden of Eden, full of evergreen trees, flowers, rare butterflies and birds.
⠀
In such parks, a real miracle happens - the preservation of amazing creatures and the possibility of our existence. 😇

  • Wishing I was back at Navua Reserve walking the dogs instead of making my way to work. I'm trying to be grateful that it's Tuesday even though it feels like Monday.
