Hunters who are fortunate enough to take a hog deer are required to tag it and take it to a Checking Station within 24 hours of harvest. The Game Management Authority collects biological data on each deer taken (including age, size, weight and even DNA samples) in order to monitor hog deer population and health. This information forms an important part of a the overall management plan, allowing for informed decision making and ensuring a sustainable population of deer.
#CanadaPost issued a pair of #stamps featuring #Endangered #Turtle Species - Blanding’s turtle (Emydoidea blandingii) and the spotted turtle (Clemmys guttata) Canadian populations of Blanding’s turtles are found in Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia. This medium-sized turtle is known for the distinctive upward curve of its mouth, giving the appearance of a perpetual smile. Blanding’s turtles can also be identified by their bright yellow throat and distinctive domed shell. Found primarily in shallow waters, Blanding’s turtles also make long overland journeys, with some females travelling more than 10 kilometres during nesting season. The spotted turtle is named for the yellow-orange spots that dot its shell, neck, head and limbs. In Canada, this semi-aquatic turtle is often found in shallow bogs, ponds, marshes and bays, as well as slow-moving streams in pockets of central and southern Ontario. One of the province’s smallest turtles, its shell measures less than 13 centimetres in length. Habitat loss, road mortality and illegal collection are among the biggest threats facing Canada’s turtle populations today. @canadapostagram #Philately #Philatelia #PhilatelyTimes #Environment #Conservation
Today we spent decent time at the #Lewa Conservancy Operation Center and learnt about the amazing work they are doing in conservation and community impact in and around #Lewa and the surroundings. They are a model for how humans and wildlife can live in harmony leaving a legacy for future generations. . . . #immrrsify #traveldeeper #safari #conservation #Kenya #africa #rhino #elewana

Decided to throw a landscape into the mix of my Sable Island horses. This was one of my last images before making our way back to the plane.
Kurt and I had the unique experience of seeing a rainbow at Zion National Park last week. We were hiking Canyon Overook to see the sunset, when it started raining and shrouded the valley view in a mist, which quickly turned to sun. We turned around and there it was. A full rainbow! 🌈 And it ended right in one of the cliff's blind arches. What an experience. We did get to see the cliffs' golden glow at sunset too! We also saw a rainbow leaving Bryce Canyon but it mostly faded by the time I got a picture. .

Horseshoe crabs spawning - horseshoe crabs provide a source of food for countless shorebirds. Delaware bay is a main stop on their migration route and if the horseshoe crabs are not there or the beaches are not bird friendly the shorebirds perish. I took this and the following pics on a closed beach I had permission to be there. There were no birds near yet so I was allowed to get up close otherwise I was behind dunes in the grass with a zoom. It is important to stay off closed beaches - the birds spook easily and that means no vital food for them or rest during their long migration #horseshoecrab #capemay #naturephotography #photography #newjersey #ocean #bay #sea #beach #ig_shutterbugs #ig_captures #wildlife #wildnewjersey #njdotcom #southjerseyadventures #conservation #sand #nj

The Trans Ecuador Mountain Bike Route - the Dirt Road Version - runs the length of the country's volcanic corridor, following jeep tracks and tertiary, low traffic sealed roads. Meandering a remote course through the Ecuadorian Andes, it connects vibrant, colourful market towns with small mountain settlements. Amongst many highlights, its itinerary includes the volcanic trio of Cotopaxi, Quilatoa and Chimborazo, as well as the beautiful colonial city of Cuenca
