The red fox, Vulpes vulpes, is the largest of the true foxes and the most abundant wild member of the Carnivora, being present across the entire Northern Hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to North Africa, North America and Eurasia. It is listed as least concern by the IUCN.Its range has increased alongside human expansion, having been introduced to Australia, where it is considered harmful to native mammals and bird populations. Due to its presence in Australia, it is included among the list of the "world's 100 worst invasive species". The red fox originated from smaller-sized ancestors from Eurasia during the Middle Villafranchian period, and colonised North America shortly after the Wisconsin glaciation. Among the true foxes, the red fox represents a more progressive form in the directio...
Snorkelling in Cyprus with not much wildlife!
http://www.indiegogo.com/cypruswildlife This campaign is intended to support an upcoming documentary which is already in the production. The documentary reveals the hidden beauties of the island of Cyprus. We intend to show the island from a different perspective: as if it was uninhabited. The documentary is non-narrated and will feature soundtracks from local composers.
The Sovereign Base Areas in Cyprus are not only home to British Forces based on the Island, but also provide a haven for wildlife. The environment surrounding Akrotiri, Episkopi and Dhekelia is largely unspoilt - and thanks to the work of volunteers and British Forces Personnel - endangered species are being given a helping hand.
Την μοναδική και πολύ σημαντική βιοποικιλότητα του Ακάμα θέλησε να αναδείξει και να εξηγήσει ο Πρόεδρος του Συνδέσμου προστασίας φυσικής κληρονομιάς και βιοποικιλότητας της Κύπρου Γιώργος Κωνσταντίνου. Στο πλαίσιο του Περιφερειακού Συνεδρίου «ΕΕ – Κύπρος Αειφόρος Ανάπτυξη – Φυσικοί Πόροι» που έγινε στην Αίθουσα εκδηλώσεων Κοινοτικού Συμβουλίου Κάθικα στις 30 Αυγούστου, 2014 προβλήθηκε μια ταινία για την βιοποικιλότητα της περιοχής του Ακάμας η οποία αναλύει τη σημαντικότητα της υπάρχουσας χλωρίδας και πανίδας, που φιλοξενείται στην περιοχή. Το Συνέδριο άνοιξε με χαιρετισμούς εκ μέρους εκπροσώπων των τριών συνδιοργανωτών - του Γραφείου του Ευρωπαϊκού Κοινοβουλίου στην Κύπρο, του Τμήματος Περιβάλλοντος, του Διαχειριστικού Έργου Ακάμα.

No common name. This species is formerly known as M. gibbosus anatolicus , but DNA analysis showed that this an unique species, probably endemic for Cyprus. Distribution: Cyprus (Trodos area, western and southwestern Cyprus in the following locations: Polis Chrysochou, Lemona Village (Paphos area), Akrotiri, Dhekelia and Kato Pyrgos) and also one finding in a park in Nicosia. M. cyprius seems to be quite common in parts of Cyrpus) Also some locations in occupied northern Cyprus. Habitat: Arid/semi-arid habitats with little or no vegetation. Moderate to limited humidity. Don't dig burrows, but use natural space/burrows under stones and other objects. In Northwestern areas it seems that this species might enter gardens and accidently houses. Venom: No medical data available in literature,...
Some hundreds of Cyprus donkeys live on the Karpass Peninsula northern part of Cyprus. They were abandoned there by Greek Cypriot farmers during the Turkish invasion in 1974. In 2008, a group of Greek and Turkish Cypriots organized to save the animals from extinction after several were found shot to death
The Egyptian fruit bat or Egyptian rousette (Rousettus aegyptiacus) is a species of Old World fruit bat. Egyptian fruit bats are found throughout Africa, except in the desert regions of the Sahara, and throughout the Middle East, as far east as Pakistan and northern India. Due to its extensive geographic range, and relatively large wild population, Rousettus aegyptiacus does not hold any specific conservation status.
Asinus is a subgenus of Equus (single-toed (hooved) grazing animal) that encompasses several subspecies of Equidae commonly known as asses, characterized by long ears, a lean, straight-backed build, lack of a true withers, a coarse mane and tail, and a reputation for considerable toughness and endurance. The common donkey is the best-known domesticated representative of the subgenus, with both domesticated and feral varieties. Among the wild ass species are several never-domesticated species that live in Asia and Africa. The Cyprus donkeys is the donkey breed of the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. There are two principal strains: a large dark-coloured type with a pale belly, probably of European origin; and a small grey African type which represents about 20% of the total population, whi...

It belongs to the hobby group, a rather close-knit number of similar falcons often considered a subgenus Hypotriorchis. The sooty falcon is sometimes considered its closest relative, but while they certainly belong to the same lineage, they do not seem to be close sister species. Eleonora's falcon is named after Eleonor of Arborea, national heroine of Sardinia
Some of the animals, places and people we saw on our holiday to Cyprus with Wildlife Travel in March 2012, including some when we were not with the group. We have used a few of our flower photos as backgrounds to some of the titles. Sorry for the annoying grey spot on the videos - dust in the camera: we've taken it in for servicing. We gave up trying to add vaguely appropriate pieces of background music with Windows Live Move Maker. Life's too short!
Termites are eusocial insects that are classified at the taxonomic rank of infraorder Isoptera, or as epifamily Termitoidae within the cockroach order Blattodea. Termites were once classified in a separate order from cockroaches, but recent phylogenetic studies indicate that they evolved from close ancestors of cockroaches during the Jurassic or Triassic. However, the first termites possibly emerged during the Permian or even the Carboniferous. About 3,106 species are currently described, with a few hundred more left to be described. Although these insects are often called "white ants", they are not ants.
From flamingos languishing on the salt lakes to a vulture colony housed in the cliffs above Tunnel Beach, the British Forces Cyprus community is surrounded by natural wonders. In our 2nd feature on the work of the Sovereign Base Area's Environment Department, we examine the impact of the British military bases and personnel on the island's wildlife.
Lycosa is a genus of wolf spiders. More than 200 species are found, represented throughout most of the world. Often (incorrectly) called the "true tarantula", Lycosa can be distinguished from common wolf spiders by their relatively large size. This genus includes the European Lycosa tarantula which was once associated with tarantism, a dubious affliction whose symptoms included shaking, cold sweats, and a high fever, asserted to be curable only by the traditional tarantella dance. There is no scientific substantiation of that myth. In fact, the venom of wolf spiders is much less harmful to humans than, e.g., that of the European widow spider of the Theridiidae family.From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Macrovipera lebetina is a venomous viper species found in Cyprus, North Africa, much of the Middle East, and as far east as Kashmir. Five subspecies are currently recognized, including the nominate race described here
