A Celebration of Nudibranchs – Pokémon of The Sea

A Celebration of Nudibranchs – Pokémon of The Sea

Nudibranchs are Pokemon of The Sea

Nudibranchs defy biological conventions through genetic, and chemical extortion. Their lives reveal a world where the boundaries of what you eat and who you are don’t exist.

In celebration of beauty and biological ingenuity, I present to you this montage of Nudibranchs and contemporary design.
Enjoy this little creation, it is combined with soothing sounds and pleasing elements, that makes you feel relaxed and inspired.

(Find out the Facts in the video below the gallery)

Sea slugs that are brilliantly coloured, strangely beautiful and defy biological convention.
Find out what makes a Nudibranch seem more like Pokémon than a slug.

The Spider Diary – Part 1: Unexpected Friends

The Spider Diary – Part 1: Unexpected Friends

Heartwarming gestures of friendship and compassion are just around the corner, except they are not always what we expect and not precisely what we were looking for.

When you feel that there could not possibly be anything left to get excited over, something unexpected, sometimes absurd – and take you by surprise.

On a day not so long ago, sad feelings had settled in like a bad weather forecast. It felt that lately, too many things to count had gone wrong, not just for me, but for so many, and tears were beginning to be as regular as the rainstorms up north that were flooding the Riverina. On such a day when things felt heavy, blue and grey, I called my mum and broke into tears.

I was sitting on my wicker chair outside on the phone. My little plant-filled courtyard was a jungle-like haven of roughly potted plants and overhanging trees. While sitting in the quiet, trying to better my mood by chatting about things like tea and weather with my mother, something unexpected happened.

I was not three minutes on the phone when a tiny spider with enormous eyes popped up right next to my head. This speck of wonder sitting on the ledge of my garden wall – no bigger than a garden pea, instantly stopped my tears. And I told my mum I had to go, a something, a someone had just popped in. 

Who, whom, was this gorgeous spider lady? And how is it she seems to see me, really see me?? In a swift instance, the sight of the lady jumping spider had sent the blues away. And we sat in equal curiosity, eye to eye.

To be continued…

Grasshopper to Locust – Serotonin. Good Vibes. Big Changes.

Grasshopper to Locust – Serotonin. Good Vibes. Big Changes.

Grasshopper to Locust.

Do you ever have the feeling when dancing in a crowd with all your friend of being so happy that you could burst out of your skin, transform and grow wings?
You could be a Locust.

Locust and Grasshoppers are the same things.

Grasshoppers, the green guys with long hind legs and big buggy eyes that eat green plants and wreck rose bushes, are generally loners. In an overcrowded environment, something weird and unexpected happens.

With their larger bodies, softer, smaller wings, and often brighter, greener colour, the grasshoppers transform into robust, longer winged, armoured skinned and darker bodied creatures; designed for intercontinental travel and mass vegetation destruction.

Not so cute anymore!

 Serotonin Molecule

  • A feel-good chemical in humans that helps to regulate our sleep, mood and concentration
  • Deep breathing boosts serotonin in your brain & body—Sunshine directly into your eyes cues serotonin production.
  • Serotonin is a chemical that helps transform a grasshopper into a locust.

No Drink – A Koala’s Life

No Drink – A Koala’s Life

Koala – ‘No Drink’

Now a rare and endangered species of marsupial, the koalas spend their days in the treetops of the eucalyptus tree, eating and sleeping; and up until recently, rarely descending the safety of their arboreal homes to find drinking water.

The irony is – the koalas, with their namesake ‘no drink’, now need to drink; they are moving into backyards and public reserves to find water.

Please watch the film – now is the time to support changes to our Nature Laws.

Koalas have been here for over 25 million years.

We moved to this Island almost 300 hundred years ago and, in our short stint, wiped out more ancient fauna and flora than anyone would care to admit.
It seems the words, ‘Rare and Endangered’, or ‘Critically Endangered’ fall on deaf ears – it is as if we have accepted this to be a regular part of our reality, that everything native is meant to die, as long as we don’t, “She’ll Be Right”.
