Grey seals play underwater by the Farne Islands off the Northumberland coast
Grey seals play underwater by the Farne Islands off the Northumberland coast, near Seahouses, northern England November 17 2013. The Farne Islands, which lie off the coast of northeast England, are home to a huge array of wildlife. The islands are owned and protected by the British conservation charity, the National Trust, which says they host some 23 species of seabird, as well as a substantial colony of grey seals, who come to have their pups there in the autumn. Every five years the National Trust carries out a census of the islands' population of puffins, and this year's survey showed there were almost 40,000 nesting pairs on the islands - an 8 percent rise from 2008.

Sterlet, a breed of sturgeon, swim in a tank at the Beloyarsky state fish hatchery in the village of Izykhskiye Kopi in Khakassia region, August 18, 2014. The hatchery was built to replace fish stocks in the Yenisei River depleted after construction of a hydro-electric dam, which blocked their migration route. The hatchlings are loaded into container trucks, and then released back into the Yenisei river about 800 km downstream from the hatchery. The hatchery will this year release 800,000 sturgeon fry back into the river, employees said. Picture taken August 18, 2014.
