Aerial of flooding river discharging eroded soil, silt and other sediments into the Java Sea Featured 19 Dec 2014 Print

Aerial of flooding river discharging eroded soil, silt and other sediments into the Java Sea

An aerial view of a flooding river discharging eroded soil, silt and other sediments into the Java Sea, north coast of Java Island, Indonesia. There are more than four main river channels sending dark brown plumes of suspended sediments into the Java Sea. Mixing of the waters creates an oil-painting effect as the brown sediment-laden terrestrial waters mix with the aqua blue waters of the Java Sea. The river course has been modified by man-made activities in this intensively farmed area of both rice paddies and prawn farms. Additional farmland is created in this densely populated area around Indramayu as the delta progrades into the Java Sea. Adjacent coastal plains are partly submerged by river water channelled by intense agricultural activity

Galapagos Sealion Pup (Zalophus wollebaeki)
GALAPAGOS, ECUADOR. South America
There are approximately 16, 000 individual sealions in the archipelago and numbers are increasing. Males are much larger than females, weighing up to 250kg compared with 100kg in the females. They spend a large amount of time hauled up on sandy beaches. The males establish territories which are savagely defended from rivals. Young bachelors and unsuccessful bulls then leave the area and establish bachelor colonies on the outskirts of female haul-outs. Reproduction occurs mainly in the Garua season between July and December and will vary from Island to Island. Sealions are highly thigmotactic (seeking body contact) and loaf around in piles on the beaches. They are extremely efficient hunters, preferring sardines to other fish, so spend a considerable time resting or at play. Underwater they are well streamlined, lithe and acrobatic.
