Have you been there RnR?

It is a lovely spot pristine waters and sand;  the Pelicans get jealous of the Dolphins at feed time and have to be fed fish at the same time too.  LOL

No unfortunately. Had friends who worked near there ... they loved it.

Authorities in Indonesia have cancelled a contest to remove a motorbike tyre from a 13ft Siamese crocodile

Last week the local conservation agency offered an unspecified reward to anyone willing to remove the tyre from the 13ft crocodile's neck

That poor crocodile. Why don't they just hit it with an anaesthetic dart and remove the tyre?

So the croc has had the tire around it's neck since 2016? Poor guy.. The longer they wait, the harder it will be to get that tire off.

One very lucky wallaby.

 

This is the heartwarming moment an orangutan tries to assist a man stood in a river by offering its outstretched arm. 

The great ape, who lives in a protected conservation forest area in Borneo, was seen leaning forward and lending a helping hand to the man who had been in the muddy river searching for snakes.

The striking images were taken by amateur photographer Anil Prabhakar, from Indonesia, who had been on a safari with his friends when he spotted the touching scene.

Mr Prabhakar later found that the man worked for the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation- a non-profit organisation aimed at protected the endangered species.

The worker, who had been clearing away snakes, watched as the great ape offered him a helping hand          

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT SPECIES OF ORANGUTANS?

Until recently, scientists thought there were only two genetically distinct types of orangutan, Bornean and Sumatran.

But in 1997 biological anthropologist Erik Meijaard observed an isolated population of the great apes in Batang Toru, south of the known habitat for Sumatran orangutans.

Scientists began to investigate if it was a unique species.

Researchers studied the DNA, skulls and teeth of 33 orangutans killed in human-animal conflict.

They then concluded that they had discovered a new species, giving it the scientific name Pongo tapanuliensis or Tapanuli orangutan.

The newly discovered species numbers about 800 individuals and is critically endangered

Ryzhik, a scruffy red tabby cat, was found on the streets of the Siberian city of Tomsk in the blistering cold, his four paws completely frozen.

He would have been the latest victim of Siberia's unforgiving winter had he not be found by animal protection volunteers and brought to Russian veterinarian Sergei Gorshkov in Novosibirsk, some 200km away.

New planning regulations and mapping to protect Queensland koalas have been rushed, "bungled" and need to be

Reviewed urgently, councils say.

On Friday morning, Environment Minister Leeanne Enoch said the draft South East Queensland Koala Conservation

Strategy was still being finalised but new mapping and regulations would come into force in the interim.

Koala habitat areas within Koala Priority Areas will not be allowed to be cleared under the regulations,

With some exemptions.

Second time I will place this story into this Thread, however, I will now put in WIRES contact number if you wish to speak with them.  It is rather upsetting to hear Australians donated $60m over the last few weeks and WIRES have only released $6.5m according to the Daily Mail. Some organizations have not seen a cent in the way of help.
