When you finally find a reason to wear the blue jumpsuit that's been sitting in your closet for nearly two years, you document it. Thank you @oceana and @natgeo for giving me the chance to pull this baby off that dusty hanger. Oh yeah, and also for the opportunity to celebrate some of the world's most bad ass explorers who've devoted their lives to serving and sharing the wonders of this awesome lil planet. #natgeofest#dave#seeyouinanothertwoyearsbluejumpsuit
During the 2017 #NatGeoFest, @sselbe gave a quick update on the work we have been doing at the Conservify lab. Videos are available on the @NatGeo YouTube and website.
When I get stressed, I imagine #water - either being immersed in it or far above it, watching it carve, paint, reflect, and shape the landscape. From above, we can truly see how water connects everything, and I'm reminded of @neildegrassetyson's comment at #NatGeoFest about how borders and wars look ridiculous from outer space as he looks back on the one planet earth that we all share . Sleepily took this out my plane window flying back from @NatGeo last week, somewhere over coastal #Georgia at #sunset reflecting on the week before and what's coming next. #rivers#bluemind#freshwater#iphone#outmywindow
Flat-headed cats have evolved to be exceptional fishers. Their partially webbed toes are perfect for navigating through water and their backward facing teeth make catching slippery prey much easier. They’ve been known to collect fish from rivers and carry them far away from the shore so they can’t escape back into the water. This cat is very rarely seen in the wild, so there’s still a lot to be learned about its behavior. They are reported to be solitary creatures and have been heard making vocalizations similar to those of a domestic cat, like meowing and purring.
The flat-headed cat is endangered, with only 2,500 individuals left in the wild. They’re threatened by wetland and forest degradation due to human settlement, development of palm oil plantations and excessive hunting and fishing. Only a handful of these cats are currently under human care, and just three litters have been reported in captivity.
