Don’t forget the little guys when it comes to conservation! There are many insects protected under the Endangered Species Act of 1973. The Ohlone Tiger Beetle is one of them. This beetle only lives in a 24km2 area in Santa Cruz, California. They need bare ground to lay eggs and forage. However that type of ground gets overrun with invasive grasses and development, among other things. Managing their habitat helps keep this tiger beetle clear of extinction.

The story of the California condor showcases the importance of recovery programs. The species sat on the edge of extinction when the last wild condors were taken into a captive breeding program in 1987. Then in 1992, captive-bred condors were released into the wild. Lead poisoning, poaching, and other factors still threaten the species survival but progress has been made. Check out Darwinianadventures.com for more information.

The effectiveness verses costs of the Endangered Species Act seems to be in question. Some want to weaken this act or get rid of it altogether. This comprises the 2,300 species currently on the ESA list. This type of legislation is greatly needed. For the next while I'm going to focus on the species on the ESA list to broaden awareness. 
The Red Wolf is one of those on the list. The controversial species was declared extinct in the wild in 1980. Captive breeding programs were put in place and wolves were reintroduced in North Carolina. Not everyone was happy about this reintroduction, particularly private land owners who think of the wolves as pests. Cohabitation needs to be figured out or this species will perish. #stopextinction .

Springtime in the Southern Hemisphere means black swan chicks 😍😍😍 I counted five different broods the other day at #albertpark 
Swans are monogamous and both parents take part in nest building and rearing their young. .

The Blakiston's Fish Owl is the largest extant species of owl with a wing span of 2 meters. A closer look at their life reveals an incredible example of ecology. These big owls need big trees to nest in. These are the same trees that fall into streams and river, disrupting the flow of water. As a result, little microhabitats form, perfect for salmon. And who eats salmon? You guessed it, the blakiston's fish owl.

There are so many elements to ecology. Ecology is the study of organisms in relation to their environment, including other living organisms as well as non-living. Ecology can look closely at an individual or broadly at populations. It is a great field of study helping to understand our world.

A little weekday inspiration from an amazing explorer. Dr. Sylvia Earle is a National Geographic explorer in residence, oceanographer, lecturer, and more. She leads Mission Blue, a coalition that raises awareness of "hope spots," marine protected areas. πŸ πŸ™πŸŒŠ
We need more leaders like Dr. Earle to help pull our society in the right direction.

Black sawn theory: if you have only seen white swans, you might not think black swans exists. Same can be applied to ideas and beliefs. 
What have you realized with hindsight? .

My official goodbye to Dunedin, New Zealand. The past 6 1/2 years have been magical. I'll miss the beaches and the wildlife. I'll miss my walk to work where I was occasionally greeted by a kereru or fantail. I've grown a lot here but now it's time to move on and see what's in store across the Tasman.

One more day left in New Zealand. The time has flown by and I'm nervous but excited for the next step. 
My #1 NZ memory was filming Once A Pod Of Whales with @vanessa3957 for our Science Communication degree. It was an emotional experience. A pod of pilot whales stranded on the shores of Golden Bay. We filmed and helped the other volunteers refloat the whales. Some survived but many died. Why whales strand is still not understood. We can only hope one day the mystery is solved. .

2 days remaining before moving to Australia from New Zealand. I am thankful for my time in NZ. One of my favorite memories here is when @micro.p.mauler came to visit me. We planned an epic road trip across the picturesque South Island. We met cheeky keas and camped in a tent during thunderstorms. ⛺️

Three more days left in New Zealand before heading off over the ditch. #3 NZ memory was during my first road trip and getting stuck behind a sheep herd. So cute.

4 more days before the move to Australia. Precious New Zealand moment #4 - every morning passing by a fence lined with jasmine. Modest flower that produces a beautiful fragrance. ❀

So here is my 5th favorite New Zealand moment...climbing the Te Paki sand dunes, surfing down, and trying not to get a mouth full of sand on the way.

In 6 days I'll be moving to Australia. I've lived in New Zealand for the past 6 years and loved every moment of it. Now it's time for the next chapter in my life. I'm feeling mixed emotions but decided to celebrate by sharing my top 6 NZ moments. 
#6 I went on a dolphin sightseeing tour in Northland but all the dolphins had disappeared because there were orca in the harbor. I had just finished working on a series that told the story of NZ orca that come into the harbor to hunt stingrays. I had researched and watched hours of footage of these creatures and now I was seeing them with my own eyes. 🐳

I really enjoyed my time at Seney Wildlife Refuge. Next visit I'll have to rent a kayak, definitely stay longer, and see what other animals I encounter. Seney is Michigan wildlife conservation at its best.
