📍Queensland,Australia🇦🇺 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Whilst travelling 💦🐢🙌🏻 … Please everyone REMEMBER that the amount of land (in the main rural)that actually recently burned was about 30% of our country – there is still so much to see and enjoy in one of the safest and most beautiful/welcoming places, people and nature on our planet🌏. We will (and are) recover rapidly😉 … Come on down #silvernomads_ ❤️ 🇦🇺… “ This area is a turtle cleaning station located in a tidal lagoon hence the corals flat appearance. It is frequently worn down by a lot of itchy and algae covered turtles and is also composed of hard corals which are usually earthy tones like the browns and yellows in this video.” Said Jacinta @jacintashackleton (take a look😉) #jacintashackleton#nature#ilvernomads_ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
😉FACT FILE👇… 🇦🇺🐢”On a serious note- I noticed the second turtle couldn’t stay down and was positively buoyant meaning it could have an infection or may have swallowed plastic!🥤” Said Jacinta @jacintashackleton… Sea turtles of Queensland, Australia🇦🇺 “Residents of Queensland are fortunate to have such a rich sea life right at their doorsteps. In fact, six of the seven marine turtle species of the world make their homes in Queensland. While the leatherback only visits during the winter, the remaining five stay their entire lives here. Since there is so much to learn about the differences between these beautiful creatures’ Ref.by Epic Ocean Adventures ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖

We recently discovered this book about Australia at local used bookstore ~ A WALK IN THE BUSH ~ By Gwyn Perkins
🌲While studying a map in one of our previous book spotlights, we asked the children what they knew about this far away place and some knew about the current fires in Australia. So with a gentle and loving touch, this book supports the children in learning about developing a relationship with nature, learning about native species in your special places and also demonstrates the rejuvination of plant life after fires. We feel the necessity of education about our world and not always just about our special natural places here in GA. Support for far away places also lends to our school philosophy of growing a compassion for living things, and the celebration of diverse habitats.This book couldn't have popped up into our lives at a better time.
Kino (noun): a gum obtained from certain tropical trees by tapping, used locally as an astringent in medicine and in tanning.
Kino (ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi): Body, person, individual, self, main portion, physique, receptacle.
Kino is a unique, red gum exuded by Eucalyptus and several other tree species. As mentioned in Webster's dictionary, this gum had a variety of uses, including tanning, dyeing, and in medicines. Unlike other gums, kino contains polyphenols, compounds that aid the plant in preventing infection and deter herbivory. Similarly, kino has been used by Australian aboriginal peoples for its antimicrobial properties in fighting colds, often consumed as a tea. The fact that this same word, in terms of pronunciation, means "body" in Hawaiian, feels like a very special connection. Kino, like blood, comes from the body of these trees, and enters our body as a healing agent.
I first read about kino a year ago, when I was just dipping my toes in paintmaking. I figured it might be a good binder for pigments, but its red color was a deterrent. Now, with millions of acres of eucalypts and other Australian wildlife burning, I sought this gum for healing spellcraft. We have many thousands of eucalyptus trees planted throughout Hawaiʻi. Though beautiful, these non-natives pose threats to native species and are problematic in fire-threatened areas (such as my Waikōloa). That being said, I can still appreciate their unique history and long friendship with humans.
The trees along upper Waikōloa road suffered a fire in 2018, causing their bark to split and kino to rise in response. Their bark is still blackened in areas (pic 3). Diving into the buffalo grass to reach these trees, I was greeted with a unique understory of natives: mostly ʻuhaloa, ʻilima, and ʻaʻaliʻi. The trees themselves had various insect friends living in the bark, and black widow eggsacks were noted. As the sun set over Kohala, I spoke to the trees, explaining my purpose in taking some of their sap for symbolic and spiritual purposes. As always, I only took a small amount. Excited to see what I learn from this sap ❤
Oh, and I looked like an absolute goblin upon reemerging from the shrubbery, ha!
Anyone planning on heading to WA, I honestly cannot recommend @yelverton_brook enough!
Joy and Simon were simply wonderful - our chalet was beautiful, clean, comfortable and full of everything we could have possibly needed during our stay. The wonderful kitchen allowed us to cook for ourselves and champagne was brought to our door! The spa was also wonderful with beautiful views looking out into the trees.
It was such a peaceful and relaxing place, allowing us to be completely immersed in Australian wildlife. A variety of animals came to visit our garden during our stay, such as the critically endangered Woylie, Parrots, Possums and Kangaroos! It was such an incredible experience and a chance to see these wonderful animals up close and even feed them!
If heading to the Margaret River Region, this really isn’t one to be missed!
Australia vs India!
3rd ODI - M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru
India win by 7 wickets! .
Definitely not our night today as India's all class batting line up drove them to a fantastic series win! Australia managed to post 286 after a great ton by Steve Smith but Rohit Sharma's 119 and Virat Kohli's 89 sealed the series for their side.
Nothing really went according to how we wanted them to today. We were outplayed and it was a well deserving win for the hosts.
But there is always next time for us. We believe in you no matter what Aussie boys! .
What an amazing player!!!!! What a sensational innings!!!!! 😍😍😍😍
An ODI century after 3 years for Steve Smith! He scored 131 runs off 132 balls which included 14 fours and 1 six!
This is his 9th ODI ton! 🙌🙌 You always know how to hold our innings together and deliver when we need it the most! So proud of you!!!!!! Take a bow!!!!!! 👏👏

Adam with @hsiaustralia, his team continue to search for an animals that are injured or struggling to find food or water. 🐾💔🐨🦘
RP: @hsiaustralia Adam, part of the second response team HSI has deployed to Kangaroo Island, gives an update on the situation on the island - alongside his gorgeous co-star!
We appreciate all the support we have received, as need does not seem to be diminishing on the island. As the days pass since fires burned though, starving and weak animals are finding their way to the ground and out into the open.
Happy Sunday 🌸 We hope you have time to get out outside today and soak up the beauty. This is where the inspiration for our unique Sinerji prints comes from - quiet moments spent in nature.
Did you know that our natural dyes come from the flowers, plants, bark and fruit of the season? Working with nature and sustainable, traditional techniques is so important to us here at Sinerji 💜

LIKE PLEASE Miles de koalas perecieron en los incendios que sucedieron en Australia esperemos y confiemos en Dios, que esté especie pueda poder reproducirse y seguir adelante para continuar siendo uno de los símbolos de ese país.
Yo compré un koala de peluche para ayudar a esta fundación @discoverwildlife se que no es mucho pero espero que sirva de algo.
Fueron arriba de 500 millones de animales que perecieron en este desastre natural. y fueron los koalas lo que llevaron en la mayor parte ya que no pudieron moverse a la velocidad necesaria para poder escapar de las llamas.
Esperemos que con el pasar del tiempo su reproducción puede hacer la propia como para que no dejen de extinguirse. No saben cuál emocionado me sentí, al saber que había aportado algo. Y aquí estoy esperando que me llegue mi koalito como recuerdo esta noble causa. #LoveAustralia#KoalaSurviver

I am widow and mother to six children we have experienced grief but we try to be people who realise life is precious and worth enjoying. This is me playing in abandoned truck on my birthday April 2018. Having lot of fun.
A fire covered all of Australia. Half a billion animals have died. Burned to the ground. The whole green valley burned out. New cars, new factories, technologies. And this gas, which is released into the sky, dissolves the entire ozone layer. Why do we have global warming? Why did our water level rise by 10, if not percent more over the past year? I feel sorry for the animals that they are paying for the sins of people!
I want everyone to know what's going on, because Ignoring this problem will struggle in the future. Many animals in Australia are dead. Don't turn away from the truth in front of your eyes. I should just do it. Act now before it's too late.
I hope that kindness,love and peace spreads.

Two cousins drove around rescuing koalas on Kangaroo Island and brought them to their neighbors, who they say have a permit to care for native wildlife. While one of the koalas died on the way, the families says they're "just trying to collect as many live ones as we can." 💔
