I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand —
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep — while I weep!
O God! Can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Nature at its best.
8 Egrets following 4 fishing Cormorants chasing a school of little fish. Amazing to watch and I was whispering so not to spook the Egrets... the cormorants are far less jumpy
Watch some of the little fish jump out of the water to try and escape
Our #BiosphereReserveOfTheDay is Menorca #Spain
UNESCO's Man and Biosphere Programme declared Menorca a biosphere reserve on 8 October 1993 in recognition of the high level of compatibility between the development of economic activities, the consumption of resources, and the conservation of heritage and landscapes on the island, a practice still maintained today at an exceptional level. Menorca is an intensely humanized territory, with an extremely rich tradition of rural landscapes. It is home to a remarkable diversity of Mediterranean habitats that host endemic plant and animal species exclusive to the island, some of which are in danger of extinction. The biosphere reserve encompasses the entirety of the land surface area and a marine area belonging the natural park of S'Albufera des Grau.
Together with Jeju Island Biosphere Reserve (Republic of Korea), Menorca Biosphere Reserve is the technical secretariat and driving force behind the World Network of Island and Coastal Biosphere Reserves.
