@wildlifefirst - #DidYouKnow: Giving birth can be a long process for seahorses, with contractions lasting up to 12 hours. Males also possess the ability to give birth to over 2,000 babies. 💙#HappyFathersDay #father #seahorse #marinelife In the #ocean not in a tank

@wildlifefirst - (Science Daily) - Human activity is causing the planet's mammals to flee daylight for the protection of night, according to a new study from the University of California, Berkeley.
.
The study, published in the journal Science, represents the first effort to quantify the global effects of human activity on the daily activity patterns of wildlife. Its results highlight the powerful and widespread process by which animals alter their behavior alongside people: human disturbance is creating a more nocturnal natural world.
.
"Catastrophic losses in wildlife populations and habitats as a result of human activity are well documented, but the subtler ways in which we affect animal behavior are more difficult to detect and quantify," said Berkeley PhD candidate and study lead author Kaitlyn Gaynor.
.
Researchers applied a meta-analysis approach, using data for 62 species across six continents to look for global shifts in the timing of daily activity of mammals in response to humans. These data were collected by various approaches, including remotely triggered cameras, GPS and radio collars, and direct observation. For each species in each study site, the authors quantified the difference in animal nocturnality under low and high human disturbance.
.
On average, mammals were 1.36 times more nocturnal in response to human disturbance. This means that an animal that naturally split its activity evenly between the day and night increased its nighttime activity to 68% around people.
This finding was consistent across carnivore and herbivore species of all body sizes greater than 1 kg. The pattern also held across different types of human disturbance, including activities such as hunting, hiking, mountain biking, and infrastructure such as roads, residential settlement, and agriculture.
.
"While we expected to find a trend towards increased wildlife nocturnality around people, we were surprised by the consistency of the results around the world," said Gaynor. "Animals responded strongly to all types of human disturbance, regardless of whether people actually posed a direct threat, suggesting that our presence alone is enough

@seashepherdsscs - As a human race we all share the responsibility of taking care of the ONLY planet that we inhabit. If we kill our Oceans with trash and discarded single use plastics, then we shall also CEASE TO EXIST.
We have to change our careless ways before it is simply too late to reverse what we've done. 🌊🌍😢 #Repost @dezabedrosky

@history - On #ThisDayinHistory 1942, Anne Frank, a young Jewish girl living in Amsterdam, receives a diary for her 13th birthday. A month later, she and her family went into hiding from the Nazis in a secret annex behind her father’s office. For two years, the Franks and four other families hid, fed and cared for by friends. The families were eventually discovered by the Gestapo, which had been tipped off, in 1944. The Franks were taken to Auschwitz, where Anne’s mother died. Friends in Amsterdam searched the rooms and found Anne’s diary hidden away. Anne and her sister were transferred to another camp, Bergen-Belsen, where both died of typhus mere months before the war ended. Anne’s father survived Auschwitz and published Anne’s diary in 1947 as The Diary of a Young Girl. The book has been translated into more than 60 languages. #AnneFrank #Diary #history #WWII

90% of this land is cleared for cattle grazing. So it’s not just cows who pay the price for ‘beef.’ 💔

@unenvironment - There is sufficient fresh water on the planet for everyone, yet water scarcity affects more than 40% of the world’s population. Finding nature-based solutions, such as rainwater recycling, forest regeneration and artificial wetlands, is becoming increasingly important as we work together to achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all. #globalgoals #pollution #rainwater #beatpollution #keepitclear #water #conservation #sustainability #cleanwater #cleanwaterforall

@wildlifefirst - “EPOCAL PROPORTIONS” (Reuters) - Pope Francis warned that climate change risked destroying humanity on Saturday and called on energy leaders to help the world to convert to clean fuels to avert catastrophe.
.
“Civilization requires energy but energy use must not destroy civilization,” the pope told top oil company executives at the end of a two-day conference in the Vatican.
.
Climate change was a challenge of “epochal proportions”, he said, adding that the world needed an energy mix that combated pollution, eliminated poverty and promoted social justice.
.
The conference, held behind closed doors at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, brought together oil executives, investors and Vatican experts who, like the pope, back scientific opinion that climate change is caused by human activity.
