  • Cuteness overload 🧸 Few experiences match that of watching bear cubs in the wild. Their playful nature is always a joy to observe and is something we have been very fortunate enough to experience on many occasions. If you would like to watch bear cubs in the wild too, as well as adult bears that roam the surrounding areas, please check out our latest tour ‘Summer Cubs Special’ which takes place in July 2021 - it’s the perfect retreat for nature enthusiasts alike! 🌲 #wildlife #nature #bears

  • My sister and I moved a beautiful, female coyote off the road today and into the trees. She was sadly hit by a car, but in pretty good condition.

We spent some time admiring this wonderful creature, and wishing her a peaceful journey as she returns to the earth and nurtures other animals in a time where the air is frigid and food is scarce.

This was my first time moving a coyote. Have you ever handled a wild coyote? I’d love to hear the story.

  • Posted @withrepost • @alex_and_malak We need your help everyone. Link in bio sign: 
The UK is closer than ever to banning trophy hunting, and with your voice we can ensure a swift, necessary victory for the scores of innocent animals — including endangered species — who are stalked, tortured, and butchered in the name of human vanity.

The UK government recently pledged to significantly strengthen wild animal protections. And with public consultation now open, the elephants, lions and other majestic animals ruthlessly killed for “trophies” need your voice to help save their lives.

No matter where you live, you can participate. Sign this petition and then write to the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to tell them you support Option 3, which is for a total ban of trophy hunting.

The UK was the destination for some 2,242 “trophies” from murdered animals in the past decade – 15% of which were endangered. Your voice can stop trophy hunting dead in its tracks.

Sign this petition to urge DEFRA to end the barbarism once and for all and enact a full ban on trophy hunting.

  • We are excited to announce the first recapture of a Lake Sturgeon from the Maumee River reintroduction project, by a commercial fisherman in Ohio waters of western Lake Erie. The Ohio Division of Wildlife and Alpena Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office partner with commercial fishers to provide them with PIT tag readers and a small processing box to obtain information on sturgeon by-catch in their nets. These incidental captures help our partners evaluate the success of our annual stocking efforts.
.
When the fish was released in October of 2018, it was 189 mm. Upon recapture in 2019, it was estimated to be ~470 mm. That is 281 mm of growth or 11 inches in 13 months! Post-measurement, the fish was released back into Lake Erie.

  • #PRDinovember Day 24: Hypothetical head reconstruction of #Oxalaia quilombensis, with one of its known skull fragments compared to the front of MNSM V4047 (not to scale). The exaggerated keratin extensions on the crest, as well as the fleshy structure on the nasals are of course, very speculative.
_
⚠️⏩As another celebration of this prompt, swipe to see all 11 Oxalaia drawings I've ever done! 4 of which I never posted anywhere.⏩⚠️ (I draw fragmentary species wayy too much, lol)
_
2011-2013? - Yep, these were some of the origins of me in palaeoart, crappy as with any beginner artist, haha 😆. It was pretty generic, basically a JP3 Spino with spaghetti limbs.
_
2012-2013? - Don't ask why 90% of the legs are shin & calf, why it has needles for fingers, or what those long-ass spines are supposed to be.
_
Sep 2016 - Yeah... idk what to say about this thing, better just pretend it doesn't exist.
_
Dec 2017 - My first half decent one, still very broken anatomically but at least it looks pretty. You guys might recall this was my first image up on Wikipedia.
_
Jan 2018 - Hyper speculative All Yesterdays-esque one I never posted, mainly because I realised the torso and neck were broken asf.
_
May 2018 - My first truly accurate restoration of the animal (as far as hypothetical reconstructions go). It replaced the previous one on Wikipedia.
_
Jun 2018 - Swimming version of that one.
_
Nov 2018 - A stylised version of my Wikipedia restoration I did as part of my drawing to celebrate 1K followers.
_
Dec 2018 - My first digital full-body dinosaur, a coloured and super-detailed rendition of my Wikipedia Oxalaia and the one which remains on that page to this day.
_
Aug 2019 - Illustration I did of the animal in its habitat.
_
Dec 2019 - And now we arrive here! Time to draw dinosaurs that are actually known from decent material, haha.
