Nature (Season 35) – Forest of the Lynx | Press Release | Pressroom | THIRTEEN

A beautiful,amazing ,unbelievable experience for you to take time, and breath in the beauty of a living forest of the Lynx in Austria’s Kalkapen National Park.

Excerpt from the link:

Austria’s Kalkalpen National Park, nestled between two great mountain ranges, is the largest tract of wilderness in the Alps, but it wasn’t always that way. The park was once the site of major logging and mining operations, but those activities ceased more than two decades ago. Abandoned and unmanaged by man, the Kalkalpen’s forests may look like they are under siege from the extreme mountain weather that impacts its landscape in the form of floods and landslides. But it is just part of the process of how the park is reverting back to its natural and primeval state. One of the symbols of this return to the wild is the reappearance of the lynx after a 150 year absence from these woods.

Forest of the Lynx

Forests are far more complex than previously imagined. The documentary, filmed in 4K, travels deep into the remote forests of the Kalkalpen National Park in Austria – the largest area of wilderness in the Alps. Abandoned and unmanaged by man for close to a quarter of a century, the forest’s dramatic cycle of growth and decay now rules the landscape. What appears at first to be devastation and destruction is in fact part of the fundamental process of the forest’s regeneration and transformation back to its natural, primeval state. TVPG

Three years in the making, Forest of the Lynx chronicles life in this remote wilderness and the complex partnerships among plants, insects, animals and trees. The program premieres Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings) and streams at pbs.org/nature.

The program follows the life cycles of the park’s inhabitants through the seasons. In the spring, a female lynx sets out to establish her own territory after a year of being reared and taught survival techniques by her mother. It is a solitary life as she has to hunt in a new territory while avoiding other lynxes. In a different part of the forest, another lynx gives birth to two kittens who need her constant attention. They need every chance to succeed as the film states that only one in four will survive its first year.

#LoveTheLeuser! – Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme

Vision:

Our vision is to prevent the extinction of the Sumatran orangutan. We endeavor to contribute to the long-term protection of wild Sumatran orangutan populations and safeguard their habitat.

Mission:

The Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme is endeavoring to conserve viable wild populations of the Critically Endangered Sumatran orangutan (Pongo abelii). We do this by habitat protection, rehabilitation and reintroduction of ex-captive orangutans to the wild, education, survey work and scientific research. 

Aims:

  • To ensure all remaining viable wild Sumatran orangutan populations and their habitat are fully protected and safe from destruction
  • To establish new viable populations of the species in the wild via reintroduction of confiscated illegal pets, serving as a safety net for the original wild population.
  • To increase knowledge of wild orangutan distribution, status, threats, behaviour and ecology.
  • To change perceptions among Indonesian citizens in terms of animal welfare, understanding of sustainable development, and natural resource management.

My Bottom

As dusty brown covered my bottom,

white crystals scattered over me.

Thick smooth and flowing we stirred,

adding more thickness the while.
Love began to appear,

as the foam frothed at the opening.

It was heated to reach the climax,

but then all was not complete yet.
Squares of crunch and delis dropped in,

heating and changing my colors.

As time I became ready,but 

before the swallow we had to join.

What am I ?

If you love Dolphins;You will love this vid@sea world

Dozens of animal activists have swarmed a dolphin show at Sea World, on the Gold Coast, this morning.

Video captured by Kaylee Hallam shows the group of protesters storming down the stairs of the Dolphin Cove just after 11am with banners featuring anti-Sea World messages, including “SeaWorld equals slave world” and “captivity is cruelty”.

“This is not a natural environment for the dolphins… there is no excuse for animal abuse,” one male protester shouted through a megaphone.

“We’re speaking for the love of dolphins,” he said, eliciting audible boos from the crowd.
The present activities regarding our interaction with animals is getting really old,so its time we sheep pull back and work on a new future with Mother Nature.

Racial Emotional Editing on the Internet

It is easy to feel disconnected from human beings to whom we are neither related by blood nor fate and with whom we share few cultural connections;people whose range of emotional expression and personalities may feel very different from our own or from anyone we know.

 And so bear this in mind;however many kinds of snow there are,and however many words for them, they all, in the end,melt down to water.

Global Fishing Watch – The project

Hundreds of millions of people depend on the ocean for their livelihoods and many more rely on the ocean for food. However, the world’s oceans are threatened by global overfishing, illegal fishing and habitat destruction. Their sustainability depends on action by governments, fishery management organizations, citizens and the fishing industry itself.
This public beta version of Global Fishing Watch is available to anyone with an Internet connection and allows users to monitor when and where commercial fishingicon info is occurring around the world.
    Citizens can see for themselves how their fisheries are being effectively managed and hold leaders accountable for long-term sustainability.
    Seafood suppliers can monitor the vessels they buy fish from.
    Journalists and the public can act as watchdogs to improve the sustainable management of global fisheries.
    Responsible fishermen can show they are adhering to the law.
    Researchers can address important fishery management questions.
We invite all fishery stakeholders to explore the Map. Global Fishing Watch is not an advocacy or enforcement agency, but a transparency tool to help enable awareness and discussion around fishery issues.

Happiness lies in Your Mind -Paul Simon Says

What do the lyrics of “The Sound of Silence” by Paul Simon mean?

Hello darkness, my old friend, 
I’ve come to talk with you again, …
 More

“Fools,” said I, “you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence
—–
~
The writer here ask us to act(Hear my words,take my arms).
Because if we keep only following screens 
and don’t listen to our own mind(sound of silence)
Then we will run after things dictated by screens our whole life.
We have no idea why we are doing that way and complain till end.
Because we have no idea what we really want and where our happiness lies.
That’s why everyday, we feel so hollow inside.
This hollowness(cancer) grows bigger and bigger. 



Watch “The Sounds Of Silence (Live) by Simon & Garfunkel” on YouTube

we will just laugh at this paradox.

That’s why millions may have listened to the songs.
Thousands have sung.
Hundreds have interpreted it.
But very few will follow it even then.
We will still follow our neon gods,
And not listen to our sound of silence.
Thus this song will hold significance till mankind remains,
