Hearing stories from people living next to our Conservation Areas makes our job so worth it! Our focus has always been to bring land conservation to your backyard by working with developers to create neighborhoods that prioritize land conservation, and not the other way around.
Carolina Living recently did a feature on NALT Conservation Areas found in South Carolina: the Reserve at Lake Keowee, Palmetto Bluff and the Balsam Mountain Preserve. “Kim Reardon is building a second home at the Preserve, and thought she was a beach person until she visited for the first time. ‘When I saw those views, it just took me away,’ she explained from her home in Savannah, Georgia. ‘I was amazed that there was the potential of being able to preserve land like they have done,’ she said. ‘I didn’t realize I was a conservationist until I came here.’
Our Conservation Journeys, in conjunction with @Singita_, allow clients to spend time alongside the conservation teams at one of Africa’s most famous luxury specialists. As part of the Canine Unit, guests will be afforded the opportunity to go on patrol and get hands on with their work. The anti-poaching teams are particularly active at night and in just a few hours guests will witness the eye-opening risks they encounter.
It's only mid-August but Brian has already begun to notice birds flying the coop for warmer places! It seems so early, but don't panic. Brian is in the studio to explain. To listen, visit Brian's website. Link in bio.
What big felid do these belong to? 🐾 (hint: I turned this into a tattoo...!)
.After two years of daily mammal transects, I can't help keeping an eye to the ground now when I'm walking in the forest. It took me a while to acquire this skill and Im grateful to Melo for teaching me. Many of the large mammals are elusive and only infrequently seen so signs like this are really exciting! The wet season is excellent - cat tracks are EVERYWHERE in the Amazon! Every morning you can see who and what was walking along the night before. Once I've recorded a track on transect I erase it so i know which are fresh. But beautiful ones like this I keep around so other people can appreciate them too 🐾 @faunaforever

Comment below! Cute or not? 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺 The Mala or Rofus Hare Wallaby was once widespread across the outback. .
Now it's effectively extinct in the wild across mainland Australia. The remaining populations confined to Bernier Island and Dorre island off Western Australia. But thanks to some incredible work by the Australian wildlife conservancy the Mala have started to be re-introduced to their old home in the Tanami Desert north of Uluru. .
A home that they were declared extinct from thanks to feral foxes and cats back in 1991. This successful reintroduction comes after the largest Feral cat eradication program ever undertaken.
Feral animals are arguably Australia's greatest ecological issue encompassing so many introduced species stretching from insects to camels. Many of which take over with ease in Australias relatively predatorless environment. 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺

Next up on the @naturespremiere.podcast is a quick deep dive into some amazing women conservationists. Many people do not know the amazing feats that these women accomplished so in this mini-series we are going to give shout outs to all the incredible females of conservation. Let us know how you like the episode!
More on our new kea Aoraki, who is already making himself at home. Like any teenager, he is pretty cheeky and likes making a mess!
Having him here also gives us a chance to check how Samson is interacting with other kea before we (hopefully) release him into the wild next month. Ka pai!

Happy Back-to-School-Day! I'm coming to terms with the fact that I'm an academic at heart and will be going to school for a while yet. After some soul searching, some research, and conversations with people I trust, I've decided to pursue a degree in Ecology. (I should've listened to my counselor the first time she suggested it after explaining to her what I wanted to do 😝). Anyway, I'm in this for the long haul because it only makes sense to go for my Master's in Conservation Biology once I get my Bachelor's. And from there, I plan to become Dr. Erickson 😉 So... to all of you who've been asking me how much longer I'll be in school... Well, it's going to be a while. And I'm super excited about it!
