Anseranas semipalmata (Magpie Goose) A waterbird species found in coastal northern Australia. The adult Magpie goose has black and white feathers, a long neck and a cranial knob (smaller in females). They also have orange legs with partly webbed feet, and a red beak with a white hook on the end which assists them in probing for food. The Northern Territory holds the largest populations and breeding areas of the Magpie goose with an estimated population of over 2 million individuals. ian,symbol,illustration,bird,Animalia,Chordata,Aves,Anseriformes,Anseranatidae,Anseranas semipalmata,magpie,goose,wading,wetland,billabong,native

Marine protected area A marine protected area is a zone designated as a no-fishing or limited fishing or harvest area. This is a resource management practice that may be used when the marine resources are at risk due to human and natural activities such as over-fishing, habitat destruction, invasive species, and/or climate change. symbol,vector,illustration,icon,sign,buoy,conservation,protection,endangered,threatened,overfishing,destruction,stock,resource,management,human

Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) nest in busy parking lot protect Found on golf courses or vacant gravell parking lots, this noisy plover is best known for its "broken wing" behavior. If a predator approaches, a nesting killdeer performs a conspicuous distraction display, dragging itself as if mortally wounded, often on one foot, its wings seemingly broken and its rusty tail fanned toward the intruder. This feigning of injury is effective in luring the predator away from the eggs or young, at which point the bird then "recovers" and flies off, calling loudly.

Storm Timing and Impacts on Chesapeake Bay Flora and Fauna The timing of tropical storms and hurricanes can have major impacts on the life histories of Chesapeake Bay flora and fauna. Changes in water salinity can cause early spawning in some species, such as the blue crab, and increased sediment can cause widespread die-off of seagrasses.   diagram,eco-rythm,storms,chesapeake,tropical,hurricanes,early,migration,timing

Generic Resources and Threats to the Northern Great Plains Parks  Some of the most common threats to the national parks ecosystems include those to quality of air, quality and quantity of available water, and the parks native species. Prescribed fire is used to prevent uncontrolled forest fires and to reduce the growth of nonnative species.
