@paulnicklen Why do you think male narwhals have to carry around this sometimes inconvenient tooth? Is it actually a tooth? How long do you think they grow? Do they have teeth inside of their mouths? What percentage of female narwhals have a tusk? If there where such massive physiological benefits to having a narwhal tusk then don't you think both sexes would have them? How deep can narwhals dive? Are they hunted? Is it legal to sell narwhals tusks? How many populations of narwhals are there? We know so little about these amazing mammals - and have much to learn if we're to help them survive our changing climate.

Did you know that male Polar Bears can weigh as much as 10 men? The largest Polar Bear recorded weighed around 1000kg/2209lbs! #wearewildest.
"Wildlife filmmaker Bertie Gregory has channeled a childhood obsession with wildlife into photography. Photos from this obsession earned him recognition early on in his career, including been named a National Geographic Young Explorer and the Youth Outdoor Photographer of the Year. Bertie's goal is to now find stories that get people to fall in love with the natural world and show that looking after wildlife is more than just a nice thing to do, it's crucial to all our futures.”
Sadly, according to WWF, Polar Bears are expected to decline by 30% by 2050. Climate change and melting ice is impacting their survival, they are now finding it more difficult to find food because of longer melting seasons.
Love-hate relationship: How can you not love these beautiful creatures? #lovewildlife
Yeah ok, you want to choke them when they are digging in your plants... but they are just hiding nuts! And then sometimes they forget where they hid them and turn all your planters inside out🙄🤪🤣🤣 #crazysquirrels

The St Monica Trust is a charity meeting head-on society's issues of an ageing population and the changing expectations about what retirement should be like. The Trust has been through five years of major change to become a renowned leader in this vital field. Along the way it has successfully negotiated huge milestones. Foremost of these was the acquisition of the iconic Cadbury's factory in Keynsham. The Trust has transformed this into a visionary retirement community, named ’The Chocolate Quarter’. Sara’s job is to plan and monitor the delivery of the St Monica Trust change programme. She knows how successful major change in organisations, of all sizes, really happens. She will be telling the St Monica Trust story and sharing her insights.
