Nest Sculptures, Gili Meno 🐠 🏝
The sculptures beneath the sea level is a project called ‘Nest’ of sculptor and underwater photographer Jason DeCaires. Placed to act as an artificial reef, the underwater sculptures at Gili Meno ensures that corals start growing on it, which results in many fish swimming around the sculptures. At the same time, it functions as a dive and photograph site.
There are two different type of pinguins in Isla Martillo and two different ways they nest their eggs.... “Magallanes” pinguins dig holes to nest their eggs and “papua” pinguins build up their nests on top using little stones @ushuaialovers@josecandeago@agostyns
I love Ushuaia 💕

Yesterday I spotted a fallen next below a tree. Only to pick it up and find that it had been made out poly filling and plastic threads like the ones that make oven plastic bags. A reminder that the things we produce and consume impact all life. #nest#birdsnest#livewithlessplastic#plasticharms#nature
Only in @careyes_official @ Teopa Beach - magical moment releasing some 250 baby #hawksbill#turtles back to the wild Pacific #ocean#farewell The hawksbill sea turtle is a Critically Endangered sea turtle belonging to the family Cheloniidae. It is the only extant species in the genus Eretmochelys. The species has a worldwide distribution, with Atlantic and Indo-Pacific subspecies—E. i. imbricata and E. i. bissa, respectively. Costa Careyes is the only place on the Pacific Coast of #mexico 🇲🇽 where the Hawksbill sea turtles come to nest regularly. The past season, was record breaking! For the first time in 33 years, 2058 sea turtles nested in Playa Teopa. Over decades, Careyes has managed to protect the turtles and has contributed to increase its population by thousands. For over 33 years, sea turtles arriving to nest in Careyes have been protected by the Brignone family, Careyes residents and a dedicated team of locals. In 1983 a preservation program to increase their chance of survival against predators officially began with the help of biologist Alejandro Pena de Niz.
Only 10 nests were protected the first year. To date, 16,579 nests have been protected and more than 1,350,000 newborn turtles from four different species — Olive Ridley, Black, Hawksbill, and Leatherback — have been released back into their natural habitat.
The past season, was record breaking! For the first time in 33 years, 2058 sea turtles nested in Playa Teopa. This is why The ?! Careyes Foundation seeks to expand the facilities in Costa Careyes to protect this new influx, to ensure the endangered sea turtles continue to have a safe #sanctuary in which to #nest for years to come.
Both locals and visitors are encouraged to participate in collecting nests and releasing hatchlings, providing a unique insight and appreciation for one of the world’s oldest surviving species.
