It’s really not finished at all but the grade isn’t all that important to me and it’s just supposed to be a sketch anyways.

The kakapo is a critically endangered species of large, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot of the super-family Strigopoidea endemic to New Zealand. It has finely blotched yellow-green plumage, a distinct facial disc of sensory, vibrissa-like feathers, a large grey beak, short legs, large feet, and wings and a tail of relatively short length.

The total known population is only 126 living individuals, as reported by the Kakapo Recovery programme, most of which have been given names.Because of Polynesian and European colonisation and the introduction of predators such as cats, rats, ferrets, and stoats, the kakapo was almost wiped out. Conservation efforts began in the 1890s, but they were not very successful until the implementation of the Kakapo Recovery plan in the 1980s. (x)

There are ways you can help save the kakapo population through donations, adoptions, voluteering, becoming a supporter, or buying merchadise. 

You can find more information on the endangered kakapo herehere, and here .

pete g. allinson spends four days to a week trying to photograph the sperm whales off the coast of dominica. there are about 150 whales living in the area, and allinson uses a hydrophone to find their general location, and then waits patiently for the whales come to the surface to breathe and socialize.

allinson, giving the whales plenty of space and using a snorkel so as not disturb the animals with the bubbles of a scuba tanks, then gets into the water in the hopes that they will approach him.  

notes allison, “when they interact with us they approach us very closely, rolling over again and again, trying to get us to rub their abdomens and bodies. when you start getting close to them you feel nervous and intimidated, and then as they interact with you feel intense pleasure. you realise they are intelligent.”  

he adds, “they are truly beautiful creatures and i photograph them in the hopes of helping to save the whales. the more people who understand these wonderful animals the better”  

sperm whales have been hunted for the last three hundred years by those seeking the oily white spermeceti found in its head, which has been used in everything from lamp oil to cosmetics to pharmaceutical compounds, and which gives the whales their name.

currently listed as a vulnerable species, sperm whale numbers have rebounded thanks to hunting bans, though this still puts them at a fraction of their pre whaling numbers.

Divers catch footage of a rare sea creature, the siphonophore. These creatures can be as long as 40 meters. They belong to a group of animals that include the jellyfish & coral. They have dangling stinging tentacles that are used to capture small sea creatures such as shrimp. They also have spikes in their mouth to keep gelatinous prey from escaping. (Video) (Information)

This is what happens to frames of your wedding video clips when photographers use flash despite available natural light.

Wedding photographers use flash in the first place due to a lack of understanding of directional lighting. Somewhat more attractive results are obtained when the photographer softens the flash with diffusion, and points it to and bounces it off the ceiling to give some shadow, and thus depth to the subjects. But all in all, 95% of wedding photographers I’ve worked next to will rarely restrict camera-mounted flash systems to the last resorts they are.

When choosing a wedding photographer for your big day, avoid the “flash f***ers”. They’ll make you look like you’re at a corporate party.
