Gailen Mapes69,566Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera P-R - 20 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-10-20 10:15:59128000

If you choose to add the circle (which is up to you as always), I want it to be a nice experience, I don't want to flood your stream with ads or spam, that is why I weekly review the circle. Should you find any Copyright Infringer at any time, please, provide proper evidence and let me know ASAP in order to remove and ban the user. We support interaction and friendship not robbery! THANK YOU GUYS for all your plusses & shares, and for being there week by week, it is highly appreciated!Would you like to be in the next one and be part of the FUN? Just follow these simple steps: 1.- Plus the post.2.- Share the post publicly in your own stream.3.- Please leave a comment so I am fully aware of your participation.4.- Please follow me.PLEASE READ:1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side. Do not share it in your "Circle Sharing" page, use your stream.2.- In order to keep "The Gathering Circle" as "clean" as possible from spammers, aggressive business pages or profiles who don't share anything else but spam, ads or just circles please be aware that I will directly remove and block anybody asking for inclusion and meeting any of these cases:A) Your profile or page mainly has circles. I'd like to include in my circles people who, at least have something to say or post, I can't understand why a profile or page just post circles and nothing else, not a single picture, opinion or whatever, please say something, I'd like to see there's a person behind. This is a gathering between people, not circle pages.B) Your page or profile mainly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.C) Your page or profile mainly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.D) If you crop, modify in anyway, remove signature or upload someone else's picture as your own you will be automatically removed from my circles, banned and reported.Nobody can surf all the posts in every profile and check uploads continuously so I'd appreciate your help detecting wrongdoers in order to quickly block & remove them from my circles.Those of you helping me in this task may be included in a special circle of "Circle Moderators". People included in this special circle will automatically be added to "The Gathering Circle" promotion every week. ;-)E) People creating and selling their own stuff like their own Porcelain or Ceramic creations will still perfectly fit in the circle, I like promoting artists creating their own stuff, that is what we photographers also do anyway. I just want to keep away the spammers who flood our streams with lots of annoying ads and we all know how these profiles look like. ;-)I want this circle to be more a community, a gathering than just a bunch of people who doesn't know each other.Thank you very much indeed for your friendship and cooperation.

Gorka Ortiz50,026              (¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.- JOIN THE FUN & SHARE -.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯)== NEW REVIEWED RELEASE OF "THE GATHERING CIRCLE" ==NOW I'M ALSO ADDING PEOPLE TO MY PHOTOGRAPHERS LIST ON FACEBOOK!! https://www.facebook.com/lists/852972128064411If you are a photographer and want to be added also to that list, please send me a FB friendship request:https://www.facebook.com/HaizbeltzIndicating you would like to be added to the list and your photography interests.I'd like to enhance the quality of this circle by including only profiles with a person behind. If you choose to add the circle (which is up to you as always), I want it to be a nice experience, I don't want to flood your stream with ads or spam, that is why I weekly review the circle. Should you find any Copyright Infringer at any time, please, provide proper evidence and let me know ASAP in order to remove and ban the user. We support interaction and friendship not robbery! THANK YOU GUYS for all your plusses & shares, and for being there week by week, it is highly appreciated!Would you like to be in the next one and be part of the FUN? Just follow these simple steps: 1.- Plus the post.2.- Share the post publicly in your own stream.3.- Please leave a comment so I am fully aware of your participation.4.- Please follow me.PLEASE READ:1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side. Do not share it in your "Circle Sharing" page, use your stream.2.- In order to keep "The Gathering Circle" as "clean" as possible from spammers, aggressive business pages or profiles who don't share anything else but spam, ads or just circles please be aware that I will directly remove and block anybody asking for inclusion and meeting any of these cases:A) Your profile or page mainly has circles. I'd like to include in my circles people who, at least have something to say or post, I can't understand why a profile or page just post circles and nothing else, not a single picture, opinion or whatever, please say something, I'd like to see there's a person behind. This is a gathering between people, not circle pages.B) Your page or profile mainly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.C) Your page or profile mainly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.D) If you crop, modify in anyway, remove signature or upload someone else's picture as your own you will be automatically removed from my circles, banned and reported.Nobody can surf all the posts in every profile and check uploads continuously so I'd appreciate your help detecting wrongdoers in order to quickly block & remove them from my circles.Those of you helping me in this task may be included in a special circle of "Circle Moderators". People included in this special circle will automatically be added to "The Gathering Circle" promotion every week. ;-)E) People creating and selling their own stuff like their own Porcelain or Ceramic creations will still perfectly fit in the circle, I like promotingartists creating their own stuff, that is what we photographers also do anyway. I just want to keep away the spammers who flood our streams with lots of annoying ads and we all know how these profiles look like. ;-)I want this circle to be more a community, a gathering than just a bunch of people who doesn't know each other.Thank you very much indeed for your friendship and2014-08-20 10:23:2147511784132

The discouraging results of the western tragopan breeding and conservation projects at Sarahan in Shimla district have forced the Wildlife Department to start a Rs 5-crore artificial insemination project for enhancing the population of the endangered bird.

Rs 5-Crore Project in Himachal Pradesh State to raise Western Tragopan count  
Wildlife Wing to go for artificial insemination of birds

Shimla, October 26
The discouraging results of the western tragopan breeding and conservation projects at Sarahan in Shimla district have forced the Wildlife Department to start a Rs 5-crore artificial insemination project for enhancing the population of the endangered bird.

A Rs 5-crore proposal has been sent to the Central Zoo Authority (CZA) to start an artificial insemination breeding project to enhance the population of western tragopan in the state. “Since the results of the conservation and breeding project have not been very successful, we now intend to use the artificial insemination technique which will give us better results in supplementing the natural population of western tragopan,” said Lalit Mohan, Additional Principal Chief Conservator, Forest (Wildlife).

Launched with much fanfare in 2005, the poor results of the breeding programme at the two aviaries at Sarahan and Gopalpur in Shimla district has compelled the Wildlife wing of the Forest Department to think of starting the first-of-its-kind programme in the country. The Wildlife wing is undertaking two conservation projects – one for western tragopan at Sarahan near Rampur in Shimla district and second for chir pheasant near Chail in Solan district.

The number of birds, including chicks and parents at Sarahan, is about 26. “To start the release programme of these birds bred in captivity, we require a larger number of birds for which we intend to switch over to the artificial insemination technique,” said Mohan. He said the department had also decided to rely on its own staff rather than rope in experts.

Sources said another reason that had compelled the Wildlife Department to think of adopting more sophisticated technique for breeding of western tragopan was the failure of the Wildlife Institute (WII). The WII had been given a consultancy for Rs 34 lakh in 2011 to help in propagation of the birds and chalking out their release policy.

As far as chir pheasants are concerned, the Wildlife Wing has got far better success. In case of western tragopan, the Wildlife Wing does not have enough founder stock to start reintroduction of the birds into the natural habitat. With a proper international protocol for reintroduction of the birds being
in place, every factor has to be taken into account, including survival instinct, food and acclimatisation to the natural environs.

Despite seeking the advice of John Corder and other experts from the Wildlife Institute of India and the Central Zoo Authority to ensure success of the breeding and conservation programme of the pheasants in Himachal, the results have not been as expected. The Wildlife Department is now hoping to achieve better results through artificial insemination.

"Since the results of the conservation and breeding project of western tragopan have not been very successful, we now intend to use the artificial insemination technique which will give us better results in supplementing the natural population of Western Tragopan"

Himachal Pradesh State clueless as monkey park proposal rejected

Ambika Sharma
Tribune News Service
Solan, October 24
With the Ministry of Environment and Forests rejecting the state government’s proposal to develop 10 monkey parks in the state, the wildlife wing of the state Forest Department has been left with little option to control their invasion on crops which was causing an annual loss of Rs 150 crore in the state.

The officials had been banking on the ministry to approve this project which would have made available Rs 200 crore to develop monkey parks where multi-layered plantations, including fruit trees, were proposed to be planted to develop natural habitat for the monkeys.

Himachal Pradesh State clueless as monkey park proposal rejected

With the Ministry of Environment and Forests rejecting the state government’s proposal to develop 10 monkey parks in the state, the wildlife wing of the state Forest Department has been left with little option to control their invasion on crops which was causing an annual loss of Rs 150 crore in the state.

The officials had been banking on the ministry to approve this project which would have made available Rs 200 crore to develop monkey parks where multi-layered plantations, including fruit trees, were proposed to be planted to develop natural habitat for the monkeys.

Since the large-scale urbanization has led to cutting down of forests, the monkey habitats had been depleting at a rapid pace, causing the simians to turn to habitations or damage crops like maize, fruits, vegetables, etc.

The wildlife wing has also moved a case for declaring monkey as a vermin with the Ministry of Environment and Forests which would pave way for killing them without seeking permission of the Forest Department on the plea of causing large-scale destruction to crops. The ministry was yet to consider this demand.

Seven sterilization centres had been set up in the state to check further growth of their population. But this had not helped much.

Strategies that failed to work

Sterilization centres set up to check further growth of the population of monkeys has not helped much
Various strategies like their translocation and culling had failed to work owing to opposition from various religious groups.
The move to allow their export for medical purposes was yet to find favour with the ministry.
Latest census put their population at 2,260,86.___
