#conservation

A lot of people ask us what we actually do day to day. They know our aims but are interested to actually see how we are getting there and we are getting there.
So now is the time to see!
We have launched a new 1 day conservation programme where you can be taught about what we do, go for a dive with us and collect real data which will be used by us. You can even name a turtle if we see a new one.
So either email sharks@gilisharkconservation.com or pop into @oceans5dive to register your interest and we will organise a day for you.

Funny face or a pirate? What do you think?
This week we want to celebrate african #bigcats in showing you some pictures we haven’t posted yet.
Every time we come across these beautiful predators, we learn something new about their behaviour and their habits.
We’d like to share our excitement about them as well as our concerned about their endangerment.

Sorting through pictures reminiscing days gone by 🐆🍂, humbling to be next to something so wild ... I never knew there are only around 20,000 lions left in the African wild a decline of 90% in the last half century. Walking with the lions was a grey area for me as I don’t visit zoo’s or circuses and detest the commercialised profiteering of captive animals. I also came to understand some “conservation” programmes in Africa are set up to mask the true intention of breeding lions for “canned hunting", where rich trophy hunters pay thousands of
dollars to shoot big game in fenced enclosures and that sickens me. But after a bit of research we deemed that the lions in this programme are not caged or sold for hunting sport and we signed an indemnity acknowledging we would be walking with an essentially wild animal. There are four stages to this breeding programme with the lions raised with human contact (such as the ones we walked with) at 2 years old being released in stages into monitored semi-wild enclosed areas (10,000 acres). The intention being that the next generation cubs born of these prides will have had zero human contact and be fit for release into the wild/ transferred to national parks. All in all it was an awesome experience, am I glad I did it yes, would I do it again no , do I still think it’s a grey area ... potentially.

#虛弱的北極熊 😢
全球暖化令海冰融化,北極熊難以利用海冰獵食。有保育組織拍到一隻瀕死的北極熊,虛弱地在垃圾桶翻找食物,令人心痛!科學家警告,海洋升溫速度比預期快,國際自然保育聯盟(IUCN)亦預計,2050年北極熊數量將會因棲息地銳減而減少三成。人類必須攜手從生活中減排,應對氣候變化! The sea ice polar bears use to hunt for seals, their main source of food, is melting due to global warming. That’s why they are forced to find food in human settlements. IUCN expects the number of polar bears will decline by 30% by 2050. Together we can combat climate change to save polar bears.

So so so so lucky to have met these beautiful animals up close yesterday 🦒 Could have spent forever staring at them. It is heartbreaking to think that this magnificent creature is at risk of extinction. Damn us humans for what we’re doing to the Savanna Ecosystems 💔

🇬🇧 We are so small face to nature. But we are destroying it. Lately in France a lot of subject went first page : Johnny Hallyday's and Jean d'Ormesson's death went viral. So did every single piece of crap Trump tweeted.
But nothing about this heart breaking video of a polar bear starving and suffering from global warming filmed by @paulnicklen and his team. Nothing about this several miles long island discovered near Honduras coasts and entirely made of plastic wastes. And nothing about these 15'000 scientists warning that we reach a non return point about this.

It's almost the end of the year and people are surrounded by advertisements, sales... It's all about buying Christmas presents and new stuff. Almost like we don't have a choice.
But you DO.
YOU have the power to chance things.
You have the POWER to say NO.
The only waste that doesn't pollute is the one you don't produce.
If you, consumer, say "NO, I won't BUY it", they will NOT PRODUCE it.

All I want for Christmas is people to realize they are incredibly lucky to live on this gorgeous planet. And it's humanity duty to fix what we did to her and take care of her as much as she took care of us 🌍

Photograph by David Chancellor @chancellordavid - Invermark, Scotland - I’ve walked these hills now; I’ve followed in the footsteps of a game keeper with four generations of knowledge passed from father to son, and father to son once more. Imagine that, at best estimate almost 200 years of knowledge and understanding of the nature of what is - and what is required, of these extraordinary lands. I’m humbled by the depth of his understanding and knowledge of these lands. We must listen to those who’s blood runs through this land; the blood of four generations. I’ll be bringing more from here over the coming months, and hopefully, as a result, understand more about our increasingly complex relationship with wildlife, and the challenges we face in order to maintain the habitat on which wildlife can not simply survive, but flourish, under the stewardship of those who truly understand the significance of these spaces, not those who manage from afar, but those with the smell of fresh air, wind, rain, and moss on their clothes - follow me on this journey here @natgeo and @chancellordavid - Humbled by this wild and beautiful place #conserving #conservation #scotland

An elephant has a large hippocampus - the part of the brain responsible for emotions and memory. That's why you hear the phrase "an elephant never forgets." Pumpui, age 40, seemed deep in thought this morning in the grasslands! #goldentriangleasianelephantfoundation #GTAEF #helpingelephants #anantarahotel #anantaragoldentriangle #anantarachiangrai #asianelephant #chiangrai #goldentriangle #thailand #elephant #instaelephant #savetheelephants #asianelephant #elephantlove #animals #animalphotography #animalphoto #animalworld #animalsofinstagram #wildlifephotography #wildlife #conservation #wildlifeconservation #🐘

Buzo bajo tierra en Postojna jama (cueva). El agua puede ser transparente, pero hace mucho frío. ¡Explorar estas hermosas cuevas no siempre es agradable! Postojna jama es un sistema de cuevas kársticas de 24.340 m (15 millas) de largo cerca de Postojna, en el suroeste de Eslovenia. Es el segundo sistema de cuevas más largo del país, así como uno de sus principales sitios turísticos. Las cuevas fueron creadas por el río Pivka, que fluye a través de la piedra caliza.

Este portafolio de fotografías fue filmado para @NatGeoAdventure de las famosas cuevas fluviales de Eslovenia, lugar de nacimiento de la espeleología y hogar del 'pez humano'. Con mis colegas de espeleología visité 8 cuevas, cada una variada y diferente con su propia personalidad. Para obtener más información de esta increíble historia, siga el enlace en la biografía de @shonephoto. Palabras de Andrew Bisharat • .

Sheep surrounded by pyrethrum plantation. Near @volcanoespark you don’t see many domestic animals wandering freely, farmers have developed this system of tightening their animals especially sheep and goats with ropes, so that they don’t go out to destroys crops or enter the park. Animals have also adapted on this, they can be fed and can drink at one spot, owners release them once in while and walk them on a serious control. This helps to avoid crop related conflicts among the community!! Photos by @jeanmarie.nature_images
