  • The birth of these two Scottish wildcats could help in the fight to save the species. 😻😻 Tap the link in our bio πŸ‘† to find out more about the female kittens. They were born in a captive breeding programme at the Aigas Field Centre near Beauly in the Highlands. The mammals have been described as "functionally extinct" in the wild. Their numbers are now so low that new research has concluded there is "no longer a viable wildcat population living wild in Scotland". #cat #wildcats #scotland #highlands #nature #conservation @bbcscotnews #bbcnews

  • Safa and Marwa – two little girls from Pakistan but not like any others. Safa and Marwa were born joined at the skull, and they’ve never been able to see each other faces. They are known as craniopagus conjoined twins and it’s estimated this occurs in every 2.5 million births. Most do not live longer than a day, but Safa and Marwa have defied the odds. Watch the incredible journey that surgeons in the UK took to separate them. ❀ #conjoinedtwins #bbcnews

  • β€œA lot of people think they will be debilitated by having a bag, when in actual fact it would give a lot of people their life back.” Meet Mesha, @mrcolitiscrohns, the personal trainer who is using social media to educate people on what it’s like to live with a stoma bag, whilst also spreading awareness of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. More than 300,000 people in the UK live with Crohns Disease or Ulcerative Colitis – and many more across the globe. Mesha says his transformation only began after he had a stoma bag fitted, and he wants to empower others in the same position. πŸ™Œ @bbcradiosolent #crohnsandcolitis #stoma #stomabag #instagood #bbcnews
