A baby Joey, Red-necked Wallaby, Katherine Gorge/Nitmiluk National Park, Katherine, Northern Territory, Australia

The Red-necked Wallaby can be distinguished from other wallabies by its white cheek markings and red colouring on the neck. The rest of its body fur is grey to reddish in colour with a white or pale grey abdomen. Their muzzle, paws and toes are black in colour. The Red-necked Wallaby is protected by law in all states of Australia.
A female is able to breed at the age of around 14 months while a male comes into sexual maturity at around 19 months of age. The pouch life for a Red-necked Wallaby joey is about 9 months, with the joey continuing to suckle till it is around 12-15 months of age.

Female Sea lion on shores near Waipapa Point, near Otara, Catlins, South Island, New Zealand.

The New Zealand sea lion (formerly called Hooker’s sea lions), has a blunt nose and short whiskers. He is one of the rarest and most threatened sea lions in the world. Adult males are dark blackish-brown in colour and have a distinct light mane that reaches down to their shoulders. Females are grey or buff-coloured, and have a paler belly. Males are much larger than females. Pups are born with a thick covering of dark hair, which is lost at some point after birth.
A mature bull sea lion can weigh up to 500kg!

By a rainy and a lucky day, I met the wolves of the Mercantour National Park, France

Since 1992, the wolves that had been exterminated in France over a hundred years ago are living here again. They kept migrating across the Italian ‘green border’. Today, there are 25 to 30 wolves divided into packs of five to six, roaming through the seven valleys of the park again.

The Mercantour National Park is a unique nature reserve located in the very southeast corner of France. It covers an area of 2152 square kilometers, almost the size of the Principality of Monaco. The Mercantour is a unique nature reserve that aims at integrating distinguished ideals such as the protection of nature, the local and economic advancement and the preservation of traditional land use.

Originally from Africa and Asia, this migratory bird nests in the Dombes, France, since 2008.

Spoonbills are tall white waterbirds with long spatulate black bills and long black legs.
The spoon-shaped tip of the Eurasian Spoonbill's beak illustrates the amazing variety of forms that can develop during the course of increased specialisation in foraging.
In flight they fly with necks and legs extended, in the water they feed with elegant sideward sweeps of their bill. In the breeding season adults show some yellow on their breast and bill tip.

There aren’t many places in the world where you can get up close and personal with penguins, swim near them, and sunbathe with them... but at Boulder's Beach you can!
This beach located at Simon’s Town in South Africa, with its wind sheltered bays and safe sandy shores, is home to a breeding colony of over 2000 endangered African Penguins.

The African Penguin is the only penguin species that breeds in Africa, and it is found nowhere else. Its distribution coincides roughly with the cold, nutrient rich, Benguela Current. The distribution of African Penguins is further determined by the availability of offshore islands as breeding sites.
