These #starfish are all cuddled up in #seaweed. This #seastar is a #keystonespecies because it helps#createbalance #underthesea unfortunately their #filtration system leaves them very vulnerable to pollution. #plastics decaying in the ocean are a huge risk to our #ecosystem. This #beautifulcreature was found in #rockport after a big #seastorm #goutsideandexplore and #gooutsideandplay because it is the best way to #respectnature and we all know #naturenurtures I learned a lot about them at them #acadianationalpark when Aaron was working toward becoming a Juniorranger which is part of our #nationalparkservice #proectournationalparks #protectourplanet. #saveourseas #ilovemaine and #mondayphoto #camdenmaine

Yummy yummy watermelon!
We don't cut them into small pieces because in the wild they don't get their fruit cut up for them. We are teaching them to be wild and learn how to eat fruit according to how it would be in the wild. Also when I can find blossum I give them some of that too as that is their preferred food.

I am feeling sad as this is most likely my last week with my two babies as they will be heading to the pre-release aviary but I know they are heading to where they need to be and I am proud to have raised them into the beautiful little bats they have become.
Remember I am a vaccinated and licensed bat carer and rescuer and if you see a bat in trouble call your local wildlife group

Lots of happy baby noises from a happy baby, Leo the flying fox pup. He came to me quite young and has adapted to life with us quite well and seems contented he is about 7 weeks old now and growing well after being well underweight. He lost his mother in a heat stress event and we are expecting more at the end of this week. We have had so many orphans come into care that we have had to send some interstate to Queensland. Thankyou so much to those wonderful people now raising them. We all work together and hope to make a difference. I don't know how much more these innocents can take before we lose them as a species. #keystonespecies #babyanimalsofinstagram #batsofinstagram #winc #bats #notouchnorisk #lovethem #littlefurrydragons #flyingfox #batsofaustralia #aussienativeanimals #savethem

This footage of two of Florida's favourite underwater celebrities, "Snooty The Lemon Shark" and "White Fringe aka. Blondie", courtesy of Shark Diver, Passionate Marine Conservationist, Good Friend, Laura Weinberger @lauraweinbe - I came across some never-viewed GoPro clips from shark diving last year. You'd never guess which two local celebrities are in them! Not that we play favorites.. more to come! ❤️🍋🦈

🔵The Lemon Shark (Negaprion brevirostris) is a large coastal shark that is common in the Atlantic Ocean along the coasts of the United States to Brazil and possibly in some areas on the West African coast, as well as in the Pacific from Baja California to Ecuador. Young sharks are highly site attached but adults may undertake long migrations, possibly to deeper waters at the onset of winter. The species is caught both in commercial and recreational fisheries, but no management plans are implemented.

Lemon Sharks are caught commercially on longlines and the meat is dried, salted, or smoked. The fins fetch a very high price. The Lemon Shark is consumed in the United States and in Central and South America (Rose 1996). The rough and heavy skin has made the lemon shark preferable among tanneries for the production of leather. However, it is not included in TRAFFIC Network's list of species frequently appearing in available information on worldwide shark fisheries (Rose 1996). It is a target species in Belize, Mexico and USA and reported as bycatch in St Lucia (Oliver 1996, Anon. 1997). Lemon Sharks were seen at a fish market in Cameroon in 1991, but not since then (C. Grist pers. comm.). The species is also caught in recreational fishing and was reported as the 13th most common shark species in the US recreational fishery (Casey and Hoey 1985). A decrease in the number of juvenile Lemon Sharks between 1986-1989 in the lower Florida Keys may have been caused by several years of shark fishing tournaments and 20 years of targeting with gillnets affecting the return of females to bear new litters (Manire and Gruber 1990).

The top photo is when Ali was around 8 weeks old and now she is just over 11 weeks old and is almost weaned from her bottles. Only 3 more days and she will be fully on fruit
As you can see her features have changed in the last 3 weeks as she has grown into a big bat. 3 weeks ago she weighed 190g and today she bow weighs 280g. What a transformation!
In one weeks time she will be heading to creche (pre release) aviary in preparation for release
