✨Owha✨ Since doing my training as a volunteer for @leopardsealsnz I had not seen a Leopard seal yet until yesterday! Pretty excited as it was Owha, perhaps the most famous of the known NZ Leopard seal here, she is amazing! I have always been fascinated by these seals so to finally get to see one was very cool. Not a lot is known about them and these guys have abit of a bad reputation. Lack of education so it’s great to have @leopardsealsnz doing research on them and helping us to better understand them. Also earlier this year there status was changed from a vagrant species to now a resident species. Leopard seals are protected under the Marine Mammals Protection Act 1978. You must also stand at least 20m away from them. ~ You can report sightings of leopard seals to the conservation hotline 0800 DOC HOT (0800 362 4680800 362 468) or on 0800 LEOPARD (0800 536 72730800 536 7273). You can also report a sighting online to DOC or on Leopard Seal Sightings NZ Facebook page. ~ #leopardseal #leopardsealnz #owha #residentspecies #sealsnz

Our first morning safari at Elephant Plains Game Lodge in the Sabi Sands, Greater Kruger produced this little stunner. Xinzele the female leopard, daughter of the beautiful Ingrid Dam female, relaxing in a Marula Tree just as the sun came out. After a couple of minutes she climbed down and walked to a large termite mound where she posed for us for more than an hour. 📷 * Follow my instagram if you love 😍 leopard : ➡ @we_love_leopard 👫Love to tag?

Beautiful day in La Jolla! 🌞 Seals, sea lions, horrid tourists far too close to baby sea lions, snorkling, beach, happy girls, and a notable photographer-check the photo cred on the photo of the ray! That exhausted beautiful sweet girl was fearlessly boogie boarding with her momma! She LOVED the water (or juice) and kept wanting more. I'd ask "do you want to go back to the beach?" "No." "Do you want to go back out in the water." "Yeah!" I'm amazed by the trust she effortlessly gives to me to protect her while pushing the limits of her of her comfort zone for adventure. She never once screamed in fear, only in excitement. Doesnt loke hetting her head wet though. We'll have to work on that. Next time you get your own board baby girl. #lajolla #childrenspool #lajollacove #lajollashores #thornbackray #californiasealion #leopardseal #badtourists #raisinglittlewilds

Разбираем следующие пункты (начало в предыдущих постах): 9. Как я уже сказала, Мартен занимался разными видами спорта. Его мама была преподавателем физкультуры. Ее философия была такова: ты можешь попробовать заниматься всем, чем хочешь. Одно условие: если начал, то занимаешься не меньше года. В Большой теннис он играл, но не долго и, конечно, не побеждал ни на каких чемпионатах страны.❌ 10. А вот коньки ему понравились больше, поэтому на протяжении нескольких лет он занимался конькобежным спортом, так популярным в Нидерландах. На коньках он стоит увереннее, чем я на собственных ногах. ❌ 11. Он действительно пробежал марафоны на всех континентах, включая Антарктиду🥶, а вот полумарафоны везде, за исключением Южной Америки и Австралии. Пока не оставляет надежды закрыть этот список. ✅ 12. Да, он погружался под воду вблизи Южного полюса, я как-то уже писала об этом. Хотя, не только там, но и в Арктике. Зачем? Его страсть - дикая природа и фотография. До своего счастливого отцовства он постоянно колесил по самым заповедным уголкам планеты. Под водой в Антарктиде снимал морских леопардов, в Арктике - нарвалов. Раньше он считал своей миссией показать остальным людям всю красоту и хрупкость нашей планеты, но теперь говорит о том, что излишняя популяризация путешествий и туризма приводит к нарушению баланса: люди не должны вторгаться в животный мир, тем более ради удачного снимка. ✅ Кстати, вопрос назрел: вы лично готовы отказаться от путешествий/перелетов, чтобы уменьшить негативное влияние турпоездок на природу?

Hunter is a young Leopard seal who Private befriended after she saved his life and he returned the favor. To ensure her safety to Antarctica, Private hitched the ride with her (much to his family's horror) and they became friends. Hunter is a leopard seal who never eats penguins. She's a strict fishetarian. She can throw her penguin friends on targets when they needed a boost. @the_penguinsofmadagascar @thepenguinsofmadagascar @fanguins_united @thepenguins_madagascar @dreamworksanimation @nickelodeon @ciarabravo #ciarabravo #penguinsofmadagascar 🐧 #penguinsofmadagascarhunter #leopardseal #dreamworks #dreamworksanimation #dreamworkspenguinsofmadagascar #onetimecharacter

Did you know that India has some of the highest diversity of cat species on the planet? With so many different habitats and an overlap of african and asiatic species, the country is teeming with wildlife. Leopards are shy and elusive, and tend to do better where there are less tigers in India. The country is doing a great job of protecting their wildlife and a safari in India is one of the most incredible experiences. @natgeoexpeditions Photo by @charles808 . . . . . . . . . .

Chris and I took the tender out this afternoon for a sunset cruise down the Noyo River, Fort Bragg in Northern California. We were surprised to see a Leopard Seal so far inland, it looked like she was basking in the sun, but after a while we noticed that she was in labor! We watched her for awhile from a distance, but after the tide came in she lost her rock and swam away. I hope she was able to deliver that pup safely! Swipe left for couple of short videos. What an incredible experience. ❤️ #natureisamazing #leopardseal #fortbragg #northerncalifornia #noyoriver #boatdelivery #trawlerlife #teamthorburnmarine #travel #expolre #adventure #adventureoften

🐆🎥 By @agoetzfilm That's a big cat breakfast right there! This mother leopard snagged this impala and is on her way to deliver it to her cub. They will often take their prey up into a tree, off the ground from other hungry animals, and eat it there.

Wow, check out those teeth. When I stumbled across this Leopard Seal last week I didn’t know anything about them. They visit New Zealand every year from the Antarctic. It is normal for them to come ashore to rest like this one. They are top predators, behind the Killer Whale and Shark. They can swim at speeds up to 40km/h, out swimming much of their prey. They range between 2.4m and 3m in length and can weigh up to 600kg. This one was about 2.5m long. A magnificent animal, I feel very lucky to have seen it. @leopardsealsnz #christchurchnz #canonnz #canonphotography #leopardseal #jaws #seal #seals #kiwipics #sealsofinstagram #mammal #southisland #southislandnz #ourplanetdaily #awesomeearth #marinebiology #nature_wizards #teeth #naturephotography #nz #newzealand #exceptional_pictures #nzstuff #beach #bestanimals #departmentofconservation #keepitwild #ocean #splendidanimals #marinelife #departmentofconservationnz @docgovtnz

A curious leopard seal approaches our Zodiac in Antarctica. Leopard seals are commonly seen hauled out on the ice near various landing sites. Our Zodiac driver Pablo Taraborelli had his underwater GoPro at the ready when this seal took to the water to pay us a visit. #jvophotosafaris #leopardseal #antarctica #loveantarctica #wildlifephotography #underwaterphotography #toppredator #seal #zodiaccruise #antarcticwildlife #naturesbest #antarcticadventure #antarcticaphotography #wildlife_aroundworld #seacreatures #visitantarctica

@light.knowledge.power ・・・ @eia_news With 218 deaths in just four months, Indian leopards more endangered than ever. A staggering 218 leopards have died in just the first four months of 2019, and this number is more than 40 per cent of the total number of leopards death recorded last year. Listed at par with tigers under Schedule 1 of the Wildlife Protection Act (WPA), 1972, the population of leopards faces a serious challenge due to various reasons, prominent among those are man-animal conflicts, availability of prey base and road/train accidents. ... In 2018, at least one leopard died every day and the cause of the death was either beaten or shot to death, ran over by train or vehicle in road or trapped in water bodies such as the wells, the data by WPSI shows.

I was very lucky to spot this Leopard Seal over the weekend. What an amazing sight. I was a little concerned when I first saw it, it looked exhausted. Was very pleased to see it become more lively through the day and very happy when I went back on Sunday and it had returned to the ocean. @leopardsealsnz @chchcity.nz #christchurchnz #canonnz #landscape #leopardseal #earth_deluxe #seal #seals #kiwipics #sealsofinstagram #mammal #southisland #southislandnz #ourplanetdaily #awesomeearth #marinebiology #nature_wizards #gottalovenz #naturephotography #nz #newzealand #exceptional_pictures #nzstuff #beach #bestanimals #departmentofconservation #keepitwild #ocean #splendidanimals #marinelife #departmentofconservationnz @docgovtnz

It was early morning, the sun was just beginning to make its climb up over the horizon. We were photographing a female leopard who'd made a kill the previous afternoon. She was sitting in the tree gazing towards where a hyena skulked around a tree. We spent a while with her, capturing her beauty in the different lighting situations that arose. Suddenly she sat up and growled. Her gaze intent and direct. We turned to where she was looking and we couldn't believe what we saw. In the tree with her kill, around 10 meters away, was another leopard eating the carcass. We moved closer to this female who was not comfortable after hearing the resident female's growl. Climbing down the tree, she paused midway, gazed into the distance and then set off. First morning in South Luangwa 👌 * Follow my instagram if you love 😍 leopard : ➡ @we_love_leopard 👫Love to tag?
