  • While many disagree with zoos and the keeping of animals in captivity, some zoos do promote the correct treatment and education of different wild animals. It is a controversial topic, however here are some benefits to zoos:

EDUCATION
Many zoos use the keeping of their animals to educate the public on the different animals. This can really help people learn how to correctly treat them, how to help them and how they live. While this can also help the public, this will help the animals chance of survival. 
CARE
Many zoos care for the animals they keep in a way that ensures their most health. If an animal were to be born with a defect, it would not survive in the wild. Therefore, zoos provide opportunities for all different animals to survive as long as possible.

EXTINCTION
Keeping animals in captivity really helps the prevention of extinction. This is due to the protection of the animals avoiding the presence of poachers, which could seriously damage the amount of animals left on this planet.

However, some zoos mistreat the animals in their care. But what can we do to identify issues and make a change?

SIZE
Does the zoo provide enough room for the animals being kept? Animals often need large areas, and so keeping them in small areas can cause so much harm and so many issues for the animal. This issue can be mentioned on social media or directly to a member of staff at the zoo to encourage change.

SOCIAL
Many animals are social, whereas some prefer to live alone. Sometimes it is common for uncaring zoos to keep these animals in situations that goes against their nature. For example, many social animals end up living on solitary environments.

RESEARCH
Researching the needs of different animals can help you identify the problems with the zoos. This research can be used to show these places that the treatment of their animals will not be tolerated.

What do you think about zoos? Personally I would love to work in one of my favourite zoos, as I graduated a course there where I discovered zoos aren't always bad.

  • Today's lesson: never take potable water for granted. Water should not look like Campbell's tomato soup. This is the main stream crossing the island of Fort George, heavily polluted with garbage, oil barrels and rusting infrastructure from back when the community lived on this island. Not sure how much of the pollution is recent, but it doesn't matter. What matters is that this is coursing across the island and feeding in the LG river, eventually into James Bay. It wouldn't be easy, but I sincerely hope they find a way to clear this up some day.

So yeah, send up a thank-you prayer for the clean water streaming from your faucets and keep an eye on your waste production.

  • Make sure to checkout @save_the_choco takeover at @rainforesttrust, where it’ll highlight the work @save_the_choco has been up to. When I was in #Ecuador last year, we did a some sampling for future research sites with @fundacionjocotoco, we were looking at the which Neotropical Migrants were using their reserves, while we had great success finding Swainsons thrushes, we get some resident bycatch as well, like this White-ruffed Manakin. This was the most common species of Manakin I saw and heard, the trials were filled with a cacophony of their vocalizations and wing noises.

  • Pra começar uma semana cheia de cores estonteantes, segue essa maravilhosa aqui. .
.
Seguindo também o nosso combinado de não falar besteirinhas sobre cobras corais, vamos às regras básicas:
.
.
🐍 Regra 1) cobra coral falsa e verdadeira são nomes populares. Chamamos de verdadeira as peçonhentas e de falsas as que parecem uma coral mas não são peçonhentas. .
.
🐍 Regra 2) cores e combinações de cores não podem dizer se uma cobra coral é falsa ou verdadeira. .
.
🐍 Regra 3) o tamanho do olho em relação ao tamanho da narina é um bom diagnóstico. Em geral, as corais verdadeiras tem olhos tão pequenos que são quase do tamanho da narina (existem exceções, viu). As corais falsas possuem olhos bem maiores que a narina.
.
.
🐍 Regra 4) "Mas Jane, como  vou saber então se encontrar uma?" .
Te garanto que é muito difícil identificar as corais. Então, o correto é afastar ela de perto de você ou da sua casa (se for o caso) com uma madeira grande.
.
.
🐍 Regra 5) cobra não voa, não pula, não hipnotiza. Vá pro seu canto que ela vai pro dela. Todos felizes e respeitados. .
.
🐍 Regra 6) você não é comida de uma cobra, então, ela não quer morder você. Ela só quer ir embora viva, assim como você. Então, se organizar direitinho ninguém morre 😄😄😆😆
.
.
Lembrando que o veneno das corais  é um dos mais potentes e podem matar rapidamente. Mas uma coisa que pode ser a regra 7 é que pra uma coral te morder, você precisa colocar a mão nela. Ela tem boca muito pequena, dentes pequenos e em geral foge rapidamente entre as folhas quando você se aproxima. .
.
.
Fácil então ne...🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

  • We're turning over the keys to our Instagram this week to the team from our Bird of Prey movie. Join us for special videos, photos, and stories about this amazing film, the gorgeous Philippine Eagle at its center, and the people who dared to climb 14 stories into the rainforest canopy to make the film a reality. This is the Cornell Lab's debut documentary created in collaboration with Philippine Eagle Foundation and Neil Rettig Productions. Share with us, comment too—and ask us anything! We love to chat. ⠀
Click the link in our bio to find out how to watch the full film.⠀

São Lourenço é uma cidade que superou nossas expectativas... Foi bom demais passear pelo Parque das águas e melhor ainda foi descansar na @pousadacampestremg 🥰 que é uma pousada mais destacada do Centro e com uma infraestrutura excelente.
.
Quer uma foto nesse balanço lindo?! Então não deixa de conhecer a pousada,  tenho certeza que serão muito bem recebidos pela equipe que é super simpática.
