Here is a throwback to my latest Florida Corkscrew Swamp visit. Unfortunately I didn't hit record quick enough so I missed the point of this post but for about an hour I watched these birds in this drying waterhole and it became apparent that the big great egret was being a complete bully towards the spoonbills and ibises who to stuck together in feeding. Right before I started filming the egret hopped onto the log and the group of spoonbills and ibises nervously shifted down to make room. There always has to be someone who expects to be head of the table. The lowering water exposes countless amounts of catfish so like life this added luxury makes beings greedy. It's like they've struck oil there. You have a bunch of marsh bird cultures going "I skewered it first", or "hand it over or I'll peck your family"... 😬😅🌎🌍🌏#egrets #spoonbills #corkscrewswampsanctuary #floridaeverglades #birds #storks #wadingbirds #lifestyle #patience #masters #wildlife #animals #animalkingdom #ecosystems #environment #protect #respect #love #life #biodiversity #strength #power #epicness #wilderness #wild

Fire, sun, rain and soil. One of my favorite things about working on habitat for wildlife is that, by necessity, you have to tap into and learn about these basic elements of nature, and how all the pieces and parts of an ecosystem work together. I look at habitat work not as something that takes me further from the natural way of things, but something that pulls me in closer.

Ecosystems Matter - The third of our insight briefs for the GRAID Resilience and Development programme delves into how ecosystems are critical for human wellbeing and highlights the different ways that ecosystems are connected to development including how even people in modern urbanised societies depend on and impact ecosystems, both nearby and in distant places.

Forest fires... they’re an interesting thing. They are devastating to human lives where the risk of fire is present. Some of the most beautiful locations in Canada are high risk areas for fires. •
Forest fires create jobs for many people. Those people work hard to protect our homes and ensure our families stay safe. •
One thing that many people don’t realize is that forest fires are mother nature’s way of keeping balance in the ecosystem. Though mature forests do house life, there are species that thrive on the young re-growth resulting from wildland fires. Many of our ecosystems are designed by nature to burn and regenerate. There’s a balance that must be kept in an ecosystem to preserve its health, in both old and new landscapes, and fire is one of the tools mother nature uses to maintain this balance. Often viewed as a negative thing for humans, it is mostly beneficial for ecosystems. •

#Regram #RG @conservationorg: A new bill in #Hawaii looks ban companies from selling #sunscreen with two chemicals that damage #coral #reefs. The bill would make Hawaii the first state in the U.S. to enact legislation designed to protect marine #ecosystems by banning sunscreens with such chemicals.

Every walk here is a geology lesson, with several different strata exposed due to the volatile nature of the area between three mountain ranges. The porous sandstone rocks here support a whole range of mosses and lichens, one of which was used by local dyers to produce a startlingly bright pink. #textiles #naturaldye #heritage #lovenature #woods #moss #naturalworld #ecosystem #ecosystems #textileartist #naturaldyes

The number of feral deer in Australia is phenomenal! Roaming around destroying our native ecosystem. ( drone shot from our new series @themitigator )

#Fossil #charcoal indicates that #wildfires began soon after the appearance of #terrestrial #plants 420 million years ago.

#Wildfire’s have #evolutionary effects on most #ecosystems' #flora and #fauna.

#Earth is an intrinsically #flammable #planet owing to its cover of #carbon-rich #vegetation, seasonally #dry #climates, #atmospheric #oxygen, and widespread #lightning and #volcanic #ignitions

There's lots of different crabs, snails, fish, and avian wildlife out in the marsh! The diversity of it never ceases to amaze me. I'm really gonna miss this marsh when I move next week.
