Lake Nakuru National Park

The Lake Nakuru National Park is a conservation area of 188 sq kilometers (73 sq mi) at an altitude of 1754 meters set in 1961 around Nakuru Lake in Nakuru County, Kenya, home to thousands to millions of Lesser flamingos (Phoenicoparrus minor) lodged in along the lake's surface.

The Nakuru Lake National Park also aims to lagoon the lake to protect giraffes, black and white rhinoceros where several times gain an area expansion that partially aims to prevent poachers. The park lined 12.1 kilometers as the only remaining wildlife corridor to Lake Naivasha.

At least over 25 eastern black rhinoceros and about 70 southern white rhinos, a number of Rothschild giraffes, two waterbuck Kenya species, East African lions, cheetahs and leopards. The park also has large pythons that dwell in dense forest and can often be seen across the road or dangling from the trees.

In addition to flamingos, the lake is also home to African fish eagle, Goliath heron, hamerkop, pied kingfisher and Verreaux's eagle. Lake Nakuru is one of Rift Valley soda lakes with an altitude of 1754 meters in the Kenyan cliff valley. The abundance of algae has attracted a large number of famous pink flamingos lining the shore, often over two million.

Algae and plankton are abundant and thrive in warm waters and get the nutrients from flamingo impurities. Usually the lake receded during the dry season and flood in the rainy season, but in recent years there has been an increasingly widespread variation.

The lake's water level dropped dramatically in the early 1990s, but soon recovered and in 2013 saw an alarming rise in water levels that caused flamingo migration to Bogoria Lake to search for new food supplies.

Lake Nakuru is an attraction for migratory birds coming from Europe during the winter. Small fish Alcolapia grahami has evolved after its introduction in the early 1960s. The lake is rich in other bird life and more than 400 species in the surrounding park including Grebes, white winged black terns, stilts, avocets, and ducks.

Asmat Cultural Festival

Asmat Cultural Festival is an annual event for the legendary carving of Asmat Tribe held at Yos Sudarso Square in Agats City, Asmat Regency, Papua Province, Indionesia. Cultural festivals include woodcarving exhibitions and auctions presented by hundreds of artisans and artists who will showcase their outstanding skills in sculpting, weaving, boating, various dances and traditional music performances.

Located in Papua Province, the Asmat community is well known for its rituals and natural talents to make carvings on wood without any sketches. These high-value fine carvings are connected with ancestral spirits in a very distinctive style that has been the concern of anthropologists and fills in the auction events, exhibitions and museums of the world.



The Asmat population is divided into those who live on the coast and those who live in the interior of the rainforest. These two populations differ from one another in terms of dialect, way of life, social structure and ritual. The coasta…

Lower Zambezi National Park

The Lower Zambezi National Park is a conservation area of 4,092 sq kilometers across with 120 kilometers along the northern edge of the Zambezi River in Lusaka Province, Zambia, declared in 1983 which was previously a private game reserve of the Zambian president. The park sits on the Zambezi floodplain and one of the few remaining wilderness areas in Africa.

The park has a sloping gentle topography from the Zambezi Escarpment to the Zambezi River with two major forest prairier ecoregions that are distinguished by two dominant tree species. The Miombo Forest (Brachystegia) in the higher ground in the north and and the Mopane Forest (Colophospermum mopane) on the lower slopes of the south are interspersed with white acacia (Faidherbia albida).

El Paraíso

El Paraíso is a site of mysterious ruins built in the Late Preceramic or Cotton Preceramic period (3500-1800 BCE) or an aceramic site of 0.58 sq kilometers in Chillon River Valley, San Martín de Porres District, Lima Province, Peru . The area was once occupied briefly by a group of cultures for at least 300 to 400 years and the estimated population is 1500 and 3000 people.

The ruins of the Andean Preceramic stone structure have long been a debate among archaeologists calling the Late Preceramic period, while Fréderic Engel (1957) refers to Cotton Preceramic. Pozorski and Pozorski (2008) argue El Paraíso is an "aceramic" site because at that time many other areas have ceramics.



The purpose of the site is also still mysterious given the lack of sediment, the presence of burial or grave areas, and the construction of thick walls consisting of rocks dug in local hills which confirm the theory that the site is not a residential or domestic complex. The evidence precisely promotes…
