  • Biodiversitas perairan Sabang, Pulau Weh,begitu memesona. Kawasan Strategis Pariwisata Nasional menyatakan ada 20 lebih lokasi penyelaman terbaik di perairan Pulau Weh. Titik penyelaman di pulau paling ujung Barat Sumatera yang diapit Selat Malaka dan Samudera Hindia ini, masing-masing punya karakter keindahan yang memika. 
Alasan inilah yang membuat dunia bawah laut Pulau Weh jadi incaran wisatawan untuk kegiatan snorkeling dan diving. Sembilan puluh persen lebih objek wisata bahari ini terbentuk secara alami.

Selengkapnya dalam @potret.daaitv edisi “Kilau Bahari Nol Kilometer Indonesia”. Malam ini pkl 19.30 WIB.

  • I have always found the sculptural figures of Shalabhanjikas aesthetically and emotionally enticing. Their languorous postures, curvaceous bodies and blissful countenance emote a sense of abundance that reminds us of the plentiful in nature. Quite the opposite of material excess that we are more acquainted with in the capitalist plateau of our societies today. They make me crave for the opulence of all things folk and indigenous, for some reason, and keeps me wondering if we really do need their magical touch to restore balance to the world.

'The word "shalabhanjika" in Sanskrit means breaking of a branch of a shala tree (botanically, Shorea robusta) by a woman. The image is usually of a woman in sculpture standing near the tree and having stylised feminine features, holding a branch... According to some belief systems the woman at the foot of the tree refers to a goddess relating to fertility. The shalabhanjika  is usually depicted in a tribhanga pose in which the body bends at the neck, waist and knee. Queen Maya of sakya kingdom in the Himalayas, Buddha’s mother is believed to have grasped a branch of a Ashoka tree when she gave birth to him at a garden in Lumbini (in present day Nepal).' ['Decorative in Indian art : Shalabhanjika Images', DeccanViews]

  • Fabulous caterpillar found in the garden. It’s the caterpillar of the Joseph’s Coat Moth (Agarista agricola). The moth itself is fantastically multicoloured and well deserves its reference to the biblical Joseph and his coat. The loss of biodiversity worldwide includes vast numbers of easily overlooked insect species. Blah blah. We all know what’s going wrong, but we’re well overdue taking real measures to even halt the decline. And that’s my mix of wonderful nature and environmental rant for the month!

  • 💚A new deal for nature💚⠀
‘Australia’s biodiversity record is poor, reflected in the world’s greatest mammalian extinction rate, and was recently identified as being one of five countries that are home to 70 per cent of the world’s remaining wilderness areas, putting us in a position of global responsibility. Overseas, it has been found that biodiversity loss is slowed down by directing more government money into conservation spending.’⠀
⠀
Martin Oliver insists that even though this isn’t a sexy topic, it is an important one!⠀

  • Lathrolestes gauldi Reshchikov et al. 2012, a parasitoid wasp discovered from the canopy of a lowland tierra firme rainforest at Onkone Gare, Yasuní National Park in the Ecuadorian part of the Amazon Basin located in Orellana Province. Discovery site is non-floodplain containing extremely diverse lowland forest vegetation and characteristic of the forests of the western Amazon Basin.

  • My local council has before it a proposal to allow fake turf to be installed on street verges @cityofmarion .
.
I get it. We want our streets to look good. And the current policy of promoting natural vegetation makes sense. Fake turf does not - it will do nothing to combat rising urban temperatures - @sophiespatch has demonstrated that during Adelaide heatwaves, fake turf temperature can be higher than bitumen. Nor does it increase biodiversity in our neighbourhoods.
.
Don’t discuss and debate the merits of fake turf. Discuss and debate how  the council can promote, support and encourage people to greenify their verges with vegetation 🌿🍃💐🐝🐞

  • Family trip to the Everglades and my dad managed to snag this picture of a flock of roseate spoonbills. It’s always so exciting to see the amazing wildlife in the Everglades and also learn so much about the Everglades ecosystem!
