Banded mongoose attacked by martial eagle - 26 May 2015

Banded mongoose attacked by martial eagle

The remaining mongoose band were in a state of hysteria as the eagle took off with the screaming mongoose clutched in its talons.

Pausing some distance away with the poor mongoose, the eagle is set upon by the remaining mongoose.

Invariably the victim suffers in such a fight, but not this time! The force of the mongoose was too much for the martial eagle - he gave up his fight, dropped the mongoose and retired to a nearby tree. He was promptly given his marching orders by some majors in the mongoose band while the remaining mongoose remained with their slightly ‘shaken’ friend. Amazingly the victim suffered the odd scratch but was fine... what an incredible sighting!

Immerse yourself in nature...beneath the ocean - 5 May 2015

Immerse yourself in nature...beneath the ocean

Archaeological records at the “point of origin” show the first evidence of cognitive human development, early nuclear family life, art and human values associated with how we live today.

Living along the same coastline, swimming and diving the pristine waters in an attempt to encounter nature as our ancestors did, Craig Foster is changing our perceptions of the wilderness ocean with the 'Sea Change Project'. This four year journey has lead to a discovery of life that astounds in its complexity and beauty. He's discovered new species and had encounters with wild animals once thought impossible. Learnt how the nutrient-rich, cold sea water has positive effects our minds and bodies - Foster says "when you're immersed in nature, there’s a transformation that takes place because we are basically aligning ourselves with our original design, those neutral networks in the brain start functioning and activate primal joy".
