  • Watched this poor wombat for a while yesterday. Many wombats suffer from mange - they get really itchy and if untreated can scratch themselves to death as scabs get infected.  We should all be pushing for better funding to @actparks and @act_wildlife (you can also volunteer with them) to look after this incredible part of Australia better. . “90 per cent of all common wombat populations across the country are affected by a tiny skin mite that causes wombats to go blind and ultimately itch themselves to death. In fact, infections caused by the scratching are a death sentence for up to 95 per cent of all wombats who contract the highly contagious mite.” - @drchrisbrown . Mange is not a disease but an infestation of the mange mite. The female mites burrow under the skin where they deposit eggs, these hatch and cause intense discomfort. Over time thick plaques that look like scabs and ridges form over the wombats body. These scabs become dry and split open, the wounds can then become flyblown and infected. Wombats with mange often having to eat all day to try and get enough energy.

  • "What do you need to be well?" An old friend of mine often asks me this question. Reminding me that we need rituals and practices that keep us grounded, connected to something bigger than ourselves. Especially during times of uncertainty and upheavel such as this. .  What do you need to be well? . This is what works for me. . Journalling. Starting the day journaling about three things Im grateful for and what my intention for the day is, this is a non-negotiable for me. I love doing it and tie it to my morning coffee. . Meditation. Another friend of mine hassled me about meditating for years before I finally decided to explore it more when I went through a rough patch in 2013/14. I think a good place to start is @headspace. Ive also used Sam Harris app, @WakingUpcourse. Or look up a good teacher like @timbrownmeditation. @emmaawpocock enjoys taking photos of me when looking a bit silly 🙄😂. . Movement and time in Nature. Something in us craves being in Nature. As E.O. Wilson (who coined the term ‘biophilia’) puts it, humans have an "innate tendency to focus on life and lifelike processes.” Makes sense to me as were part of Nature, weve evolved in it. Or as @TomRosenthal1 says in You Might Find Yours, "Im not sure what the secret to happiness is, But Im pretty sure it starts when you go outside." . Time restricted eating. I’ve found this really useful, particularly when you’re at home a lot! I’m not here to give medical advice, so check out some of the work of @foundmyfitness, @satchin.panda, @peterattiamd for more info. I find the @Zerofasting app super helpful for tracking it.

  • @adriansteirn provided two photo essays for In Our Nature. Worth getting a copy just to read them! Link in bio for a signed copy. ... #repost @adriansteirn ... We were once a village.  That village was a community.  It required us to look squarely into each other’s eyes and get along.  Make it work.  We needed to farm sustainably because being a village we couldn’t import goods.  We needed to run family businesses because nobody knew dairy like your grandfather.  Nobody knew natural medicine like our mother.  Our economy relied on word of mouth and trust.  We grew what we could eat and a little bit more.  We were kind to our animals because we relied upon them.  Farm to table was all we knew.  Direct conversation was all we had.  Dialogue was everything in the village because we couldn’t rely on anybody else to sort our problems.  It wasn’t a perfect village but it was home.  We self regulated because to let things become too polarising meant that our village ground to a halt.  We didn’t all agree with our neighbours but we all got along.  We once had a village and our village was one of many villages that inhabited planet earth. Our village wasn’t special but it was the village we knew.  Now our planet is a village. A huge anonymous village. Everybody has a voice but nobody is truly heard. Instead of speaking to each we all shout at each other on the internet. Brave and opinionated hiding behind hashtags and emojis. Our leaders no longer lead but play politics. Economics trump morality. Instead of respecting our elders we worship technology. Rather than live in our natural world we live atop of Mother Nature. Our food isn’t sustainable. We manufacture more than we need and less than we want. We aren’t interested in getting along because we have forgotten how to be kind. Our village is filled with inequality, gender bias, religious dogma and aggression. We pretend we are in control but we are scared and our village doesn’t feel like home anymore.  We once were a village and we have no choice but to go back to being what a village truly is founded upon. Community, kindness and compromise.  Globalisation means our planet is a village. It’s to rebuild our village.

  • You know we are an insane culture when we have to have an #earthday to try and remind us that looking after our home may, in fact, be important and necessary. Whilst most human societies have pressed pause to deal with Covid-19, it seems a good time to reconsider and re-imagine our relationship to our home planet.  As the @savoryinstitute has reminded us, "this viral pandemic was not some random occurrence in a properly-functioning system. It is the byproduct of a long-broken system, the reductionist management of natural resources, the destruction of landscapes and driving of species together, the accidental creation of a perfect breeding ground for infectious disease.” . We have to begin to build a regenerative culture that is more in tune with this incredible planet we call home. There are many doing this work: check out @2040film, @ecosia and @australianwildlifeconservancy. . I know weve got very used to seeing these sort of images, but theyre still awe inspiring. .  Earthrise photo taken by NASA in 1968: "Apollo 8, the first manned mission to the moon, entered lunar orbit on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 1968. That evening, the astronauts-Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot Jim Lovell, and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders-held a live broadcast from lunar orbit, in which they showed pictures of the Earth and moon as seen from their spacecraft. Said Lovell, "The vast loneliness is awe-inspiring and it makes you realize just what you have back there on Earth.”” . Earthrise high resolution photo taken by NASA in 2015: ""The image is simply stunning," said Noah Petro, Deputy Project Scientist for LRO at NASAs Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. "The image of the Earth evokes the famous Blue Marble image taken by Astronaut Harrison Schmitt during Apollo 17, 43 years ago, which also showed Africa prominently in the picture." In this composite image we see Earth appear to rise over the lunar horizon from the viewpoint of the spacecraft."

  • 1.2km time trial on Monday staying fit for Top League and Japan Cup. I thought I was smiling in this photo 😅  Sad news the remainder of the Japanese rugby season has been cancelled, but certainly more important things happening at the moment. Tough time for many people. Thanks so much to all the @panasonic_wildknights_funclub fans for the support during the season. Arigatou gozaimasu ❤️
