The volcanic island of Guadalupe, located in the Pacific Ocean near Mexico, has long been popular with divers as a place where you can swim with sharks. Fans of this extreme type of holiday as a dive to sharks, placed in a special cage, which protects against potential predators.

In 2013, Bishkek hosted the World Forum on snow leopard conservation, during which it was decided each year on October 23 to celebrate the new festival dedicated to this rare cat: International Snow Leopard Day.

Snow Leopard or snow leopard lives in the mountains of Central and South Asia. The animal is listed in the Red Book: in the world there are about 7.5 thousand adults, while in Russia their number is not more than 70-90 individuals. According to forecasts, by 2040 the world population will be reduced by approximately 10%. The main threat is the disappearance of habitat and poaching.

California tourists managed to record a rare underwater video near the island of Moorea in French Polynesia.

Swimming and snorkelling, they noticed a female humpback whale and her little whale who swam nearby. Curious shorthead divers swam to the closer.

Between Gorbachev and the people had no more than six meters, says 68-year-old Redwood Charmian, who came to the archipelago Society Islands in the Pacific, specifically to observe these animals.

In the forests they became 40% less. For many years, scientists have counted the number of insects ; the main works are in Germany, but this model is typical for the whole world.

Insects — the most important element of maintaining the balance of nature. They perform a variety of tasks: pollinate plants convert soil, are «nurses» or serve as food for other fauna. Reducing the number of even a single species triggers a chain of changes related to various plants and animals. And in the case of mass extinction is possible to speak about a full-scale environmental disaster.

Another study conducted by experts from the Technical University of Munich from 2008 to 2017 at three hundred sites across the country. Consistently making measurements of insect biomass, German researchers have discovered its radical reduction. During this period, the loss of forests accounted for about 40% percent, while the meadows, especially surrounded by farms, — 78%. 
This study — the first, in which were considered not only on population size data, but also the diversity of species. We found out that forest communities are now found on 36% fewer species (total loss of biomass accounted for 41%), and for the pastures, the figures were 34% and 67% respectively.

The longest recorded migrations of these animals .

Tiger labeled C1 was one of three young females from T1, born in a wildlife reserve Tipshevar (Maharashtra). In February, the reserve personnel equipped it with radio-collared for hourly fixing its location using GPS. Tiger was in Tipshevare to monsoon rains, and in June went on a journey through the seven districts of Maharashtra to the neighboring state of Telingana.

«Tiger, perhaps looking for a suitable place to live, food, or partner. Most potential habitats of tigers in India’s crowded, so the young animals have to explore a large area. «

Tiger moved nonlinearly, hiding by day and traveling at night, hunting wild pigs and cattle. Once the animal accidentally injured person, I wandered into a thicket, where resting tiger. However, serious conflicts with people he did not.

«People do not even know that the tiger is traveling through their backyard.»
