ITA: I parrocchetti monaci appartengono ad una specie di pappagalli che ha invaso gran parte dei parchi urbani di mezza Europa. Nonostante il loro aspetto carino, si tratta di una specie aliena (introdotta dall'uomo) che può causare seri danni all'agricoltura. Inoltre, nidificando in gruppo, i nidi possono arrivare a pesare anche 200 kg e, se cadono, possono arrecare danno a persone e/o cose. Senza contare poi il potenziale rischio di trasmissione di malattie, come l'influenza aviaria e la salmonellosi. Essendo, ormai, la sua presenza fortemente consolidata sul territorio e a densità elevate, sono previsti piani di contenimento mirati a impedire che la popolazione cresca ancora. Ricordiamoci che le specie aliene, per quanto belle e attraenti, possono causare gravi danni al nuovo ecosistema nel quale vengono introdotte. Pertanto, è importante agire sempre con consapevolezza, senza lasciarsi trasportare dal desiderio di avere "un carino animaletto esotico" all'interno di casa. ENG: Monk parakeet belong to a species of parrots that has invaded urban parks of half of Europe. Despite their cute appearance, it is an alien species (introduced by humans) that can cause serious damages to agriculture. In addition, due to their nesting group behaviour, nests can weigh up to 200 kg and, if they fall down, they may hurt people and/or destroy things. Furthermore, we have to consider the potential risk of disease transmissions, such as avian influenza and salmonellosis. As its presence is strongly consolidated within the territory and at high densities, containment plans aimed at preventing the population expansion are planned. We must remember that alien species, even if beautiful and attractive, may represent a serious hazard for the new ecosystem in which they are introduced. Therefore, it is always important to act with awareness, without being carried away by the desire to have "a cute exotic animal" inside our house. #educazioneambientale #ambiente #natura #biodiversità #biologia #ecologia #conservazione #ecosistema #nationalgeographicitalia #costaricagreenlife #costarica #environmentaleducation #environment #nature #habitat #biodiversity #alienspecies #parrots

Freaks of Nature! Day 21 - Marmots! These large squirrels occupy alpine ranges where they hibernate for 7-9 months of the year. During hibernation they rely on a fat reserve that's 20% of their body weight! When frightened, marmots will chirp. But if really scared they can make an alarm call that sounds like a screaming human! #marmot #giantsquirrel #screamqueens #freaksofnature #halloweencountdown #hibernation #creature #biology #environmentaleducation #environmentalscience #mammalsofinstagram #mammal #natural #nature #naturephotography #nature_good #nationalpark #rockymountainnationalpark #nature_perfection #naturelovers

Big “cave-protection day” today, all foam protectors were removed from the first cave (Orizjan) and after 40 minutes of exits observations, 0 collisions were registered and about 80% of the individuals just flew through. The rest did some type of maneuvering to check the unprotected steel cables. Also, the last barrier of the project (Pos di Watapana)?was incremented to cover 50% of the flying route without any negative consequences for the bats. The Caves and Karst Nature Reserve project is commissioned by the public entity of Bonaire and is part of the nature projects funded by the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (LNV).

Meet our Assistant Principal, Abbey Gordon! She has been part of the team at Walker Creek for 7 years and has been instrumental in making positive changes for the outdoor education program. ...... A parent cabin leader who spent the week at Walker Creek Ranch told staff, "The person who does all of the hiring is incredible, the naturalists are so amazing." That would be Abbey! Every year she helps create an inclusive and enthusiastic community for all the naturalists. In her time away from Walker Creek, you can find Abbey going on long runs in the dessert, stand up paddle boarding on Lake Sonoma, and chasing dolphins with her husband in their new kayak in Baja. ....... #walkercreekranch #walkercreek #outdoorschool #environmentaleducation #getoutside #natureconnection #creektopeak #creekchronicles #westmarin #marin #petaluma #pointreyes #womeninscience #womeninenvironment #womenmanagers #womenleaders

Apesar de também se deslocar no chão, o tamanduá-mirim (Tamandua tetradactyla) é predominantemente arborícola. Sua cauda é semi-preensil, servindo como um quinto membro e o ajudando no deslocamento nas árvores. Passam a maior parte do dia procurando comida, principalmente formigas e cupins, mas há registros de tamanduás se alimentando de abelhas e mel. Na hora do cochilo, descansam em ocos de árvores e tocas feitas por outros animais. #tamandua #tamanduamirim #tamanduádecolete #AquárioDaConservação #aquáriodesãopaulo #aquário #conservation #conservação #instaanimal #biodiversity #biodiversidade #ecology #educaçãoambiental #environmentaleducation #EducaçãoParaConservação #sustentabilidade #natureza #meioambiente #consciência #ConhecerParaConservar #respeiteminhanatureza #azab #alpza #apaza

We’re celebrating #nationalreptileawarenessday with a smooth earth snake, Virgina valeriae. 🐍 Smooth earth snakes are fossorial (live underground) and are most often found hiding beneath logs, leaf litter, or other debris. They feed on earthworms and soft-bodied insects. This species is viviparous, giving live birth to as many as 14 live young in the late summer. Smooth earth snakes are generally uncommon and not protected in most of their range. They are protected throughout the state of Georgia. #reptiles #pettitpreserve #reptilesofgeorgia #snake #snakes #smoothearthsnake #wildlife #nature #naturepreserve #georgia #environmentaleducation #snakephotography #reptilephotography

Today we learned about Freddy the fish's journey through river waters! Our rivers are being increasingly polluted and it is our job to take action. By picking up our trash to using our cars less to switching to clean energy sources, we can reduce our impact on the wildlife that depend on river ecosystems. River Haiku by Sebastian: Oh no! Acid Rain! It's polluting our rivers No more cars and factories. #waterpollutionawareness #waterpollution #riverpollution #environmentalscience #environmentaleducation #environmentaleducationforkids #freddythefish

These baby spindletrees are adding some delightful pink to my list of fall colors. I just learned about this plant! It’s called a European spindletree, and it has very hard stems (they were used to make spindles for spinning wheels) and these poisonous pink fruits in the fall. They’re a close relative to the native burning bush, but if I’m IDing this correctly, it’s the European species - native to Europe, but sometimes planted in the US as an ornamental. #urbanecology #environmentaleducation #backyardbotany #europeanspindle

A year ago today, I drove down to Grand Rapids to hang out with strangers I met on the internet for the very first time 😬🤣 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In high school, I was that girl that was "friends" with people in different groups. The volleyball team. The choir kids. My middle school crew. The neighborhood gang. But I never truly fit in enough where we'd hang out together outside of school. (I was too focused on school and work to have a social life, anyway #lame) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In college, I lived with a friend from high school my freshman year and basically chilled in my dorm or the library 24/7. I barely made any new friends lol #introvert. But then I met my best friends in a student org my sophomore year and spent the majority of my free time with the five of them until I graduated. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Life after graduation was tough because I moved away from my people and moved back home to a place where I felt like I had no one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ THEN somehow I stumbled across this random girl here on IG who introduced me to other ladies who share a love for fitness, leadership, teaching, and helping others and we became lifelong friends. You're probably thinking this is a load of crap or a scam or whatever, but it's the damn truth. When you find your people, you'll know 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've had a lot of people come and go from my life the past year or so, but these people are still here--even if we have to hang out virtually more than we do in person 😭 Can't wait until we're reunited soon! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’ve been watching us from the sidelines and are interested in joining the crew, pleaseeeee fill out the “More Info” form in my bio 🤗 I’m getting ladies signed up for November and it’s the perfect time for you to get started, too!
