Liputan Pal TV @officialpaltv dalam kegiatan Hari Bersih Indonesia di lingkungan STISIPOL Candradimuka, Sabtu, 21 September 2019 kemarin yang merupakan kolaboraksi antara @rintarasumsel dengan @stisipolcandradimuka dan @mapala_kelaras. . Sebanyak 500 partisipan hadir dari pihak siswa, mahasiswa, dosen, struktural juga masyarakat yang membersihkan lokasi dengan pembagian 4 titik. Semua peserta yang mendapatkan perlengkapan pin, karung, sarung tangan dan masker bergotong royong untuk membersihkan lingkungan. . #haribersihindonesia#sayapahlawanlingkungan#gerakanindonesiabersih#maritimeisback#saveourseas#haribersihindonesiastc2019 . @rintarajaya @rintara.travel @rintara_rumi @rintara_mot @rintara_ecolifewarrior @rintarajaya_sulbar @rintarajaya_kalbar @rintarajaya_jabar @rintarajaya_kalsel @rintarajaya_gorontalo @rintarajaya_sultra @rintarajaya_sulteng @rintarajaya_sulsel @rintarajaya_lpg @rintarajaya_riau @rintarajaya_kepri @rintarajaya_ntb @rintarajaya_jateng @rintarajayamaluku @rintarajatim @rintarasumsel @rintarajayapapua
Along with guest Carolyn's birthday celebration on tour today, this candid Australian Fur Seals moment was a nice one to catch. The real stars on show today were the Australasian Gannets. Their courting antics and advanced nest building will see much more activity over the next couple of months. Remember to SAVE 20% on selected tour bookings with code EAGLERAY for a limited time.

LRF team participating in a cleanup dive in downtown Kona, big mahalo to @bigislanddivershawaii, @jacksdivinglocker and @surfriderkona. Today was International Coastal Cleanup day, but we like to think of EVERYDAY as coastal clean-up day. Whenever you see rubbish, pick it up. Whether that’s on the beach, in the beach or no where near the beach - It all leads to the ocean. #take3forthesea
Oooo this picture by @heyykare resonated as the Aussie PM #scomo visits the #whitehouse this week. We’d rather read news articles on global policy change like climate measures, not read about who wore what to the dinner Trump hosted. That’s not newsworthy when there are priorities like the environment and defence.... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This peculiar animal may look like your typical marine worm, but this is one of our closest invertebrate relatives -- the acorn worm! (Ptychodera flava)🌰 They are more closely related to humans than actual worms, with 70% of human genes having counterparts in the acorn worm😁 They are part of their own phylum called Hemichordata, and although they look very different from us, we are actually quite similar on genomic, developmental, and cell biological levels.🤔 These worms have dozens of pharyngeal slits used to filter-feed nutrients, algae and bacterial prey. Since our lineages diverged 570 million years ago, these pharyngeal slits for filtering food evolved into the gill slits of fish & other marine vertebrates, enabling the extraction of oxygen from the water.🐟 Eventually these gills evolved into our upper & lower jaw, pharynx which encompasses the thyroid gland, tongue, & larynx.👅 These animals are providing amazing insight into vertebrate evolution💙 Genetic studies showed that clusters of genes on the same chromosome in humans are often found clustered together on the acorn worm genome. Particularly interesting is that this cluster of six genes are all implicated in the development of the pharyngeal gill slits in both acorn worms and vertebrates.😮 Another surprise was that these worms have more than 30 genes that are similar to genes found in marine algae and bacteria🔬 Several of these genes are involved in modifying the sugars that coat our cells!✨ Either these are very ancient genes that all other animals lost, or they were acquired by “horizontal transfer” from algae and bacteria very early in evolution.🔄 While bacteria are well known to exchange genes in this manner, it is rare and somewhat controversial to find bacterial-to-animal transfers.🌊
