The loudest sound ever recorded ruptured the eardrums of people 60km away and was heard clearly by people who were 4,800km away. It was made by the eruption of the Krakatoa volcano, located in Indonesia.
There’s a construction nearby that’s been waking me up every Saturday morning. It was how I even landed on the above fact this morning - because I was googling if I could make a complaint about it.
I can’t, so I am resorting to staring at these photos of a quiet and beautiful Beach in Rottnest.
Life is great all over again!
This little guy, Murit, is one of many orphans I met at @dswt, most likely because his mom was poached for her ivory. Tag #bekindtoelephants and @theellenshow will make a donation to @dswt which is great, but I hope there’s not an influx of orphans following the reversal of the ban on ivory from Zimbabwe. (While I generally don’t support the idea that hunting helps conservation, in this case it’s truly absurd — Zimbabwe is in the throes of a sorta military coup against the country’s rampant corruption.) I’ve also included some extra elephant photos I took in Kenya, and the last one perfectly encapsulates my feelings about the reversal. 🙌 PS if you want to read about what a visit to DSWT is like (and what good it can do), check out my #linkinbio . (Warning: more 🐘 cuteness!)
For as long as I can remember I’ve heard stories about the northern lights whistling to you in the night sky, but never had I heard them for myself....until now. As I was standing there in the silence, the lights started to dance faster, brighter, and with more vibrancy. And as they did, the louder they became...💫
There is a war raging within our own nation and it is not civil. Speak their names. Remember their names. They are going, going, the salmon, grizzly, tortoise, tiger beetle, bobcat and lynx, marbled murrelet, red-spotted frog, they are disappearing before our eyes, our own eyes. Find their eyes. Burning eyes.
