TIGERS

_DSP0415-BDURING MAY OR JUNE INDIA IS ALWAYS HIT BY HEATWAVE HOVERING AROUND 45 DEGREES  CELSIUS. THAT IS THE RIGHT TIME TO WAIT FOR TIGERS NEAR THE FEW REMAINING WATER HOLES.  IT IS EXTREMLY  HARD AND PAINFUL, BUT THE REWARD CAN BE TO WITNESS SOME UNBEATABLE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN THOSE MAGNIFICENT AND RARE BIG CATS.

GOOD NEWS FOR THE KARURA FOREST IN NAIROBI

IT WAS A FANTASTIC MOMENT WHEN I DESCOVERED A NEW NESTING SITE OF THE RARE CROWNED EAGLE IN THE KARURA FOREST OF NAIROBI.

THIS FOREST IS NOW WELL PROTECTED AND, DESPITE TO BE SURROUNDED BY THE BUSY NAIROBI METROPOLIS, IS SLOWLY RECOVERING HIS ORIGINAL WILD STATUS.

THE CROWNED EAGLE NEST IS A POWERFUL SIGNAL OF HOPE FOR THE FUTURE OF THIS IMPORTANT ENVIROMENT.

HUMPBACK WHALES IN MADAGASCAR

EVERY YEAR A LARGE POPULATION OF HUMPBACK WHALES MIGRATES FROM ANTARCTICA TO THE WARM WATER OF MADAGASCAR. THE WATERS OF THE THINY ISLAND OF SAINT MARIE BECOME THEATRE OF ONE OF THE GREATEST SHOW IN NATURE, WITH MALE WHALES FIGHTING FOR A MATE, AND FEMALE GIVING BIRTH TO IMPRESSIVE ONE TON “BABY WHALES”.  BY NOW THEY ALL  STARTED THE LONG JOURNEY BACK HOME.
