Khao Kheow Open Zoo Thai: สวนสัตว์เปิดเขาเขียว) is a zoo in #Thailand. It contains more than 8000 animals from 300 species. The zoo is located in #Bangphra, which is in the Chonburi Province of #Thailand. -
Elephants are usually forced to swim to the bottom of the pool six times. They are ridden and prodded by a mahout witnessed pulling on the elephants ears while children hit the glass and try to get the animal’s attention and parents film them. It’s all very sad to witness!

10 elephants live at the Chonburi zoo and sources say that they perform two swimming shows per day. The rest of their days are spent giving rides in the zoo’s “safari” exhibit.

@tripadvisor has been promoting the zoo as well. Please tag, call and e-mail Trip Advisor HERE and tell them to stop promoting cruelty! - 📞👉 781.800.5000 or United States, Canada, North America: [email protected]

When people hear about my love for Disney, or that I used to work there, they always tell me about the moment when they first walk into Magic Kingdom and they round the corner and there it is, Cinderella’s Castle. I’ve heard of how people cry when they see it and feel home. I get it. I totally get it, I’ve done that too, but with this tree. I love Cinderella’s Castle and I love the magic of Magic Kingdom and Ariel’s Grotto (of course), but I will never hesitate to tell you that my favourite Park is Animal Kingdom. When I’m walking up the path before it appears, I’m captivated by the beauty of the music from other countries (including my favourite group of all time that plays, Deep Forest). Then, there it is! The Tree of Life standing tall and proud just as it as since Earth Day ‘98 on on Discovery Island with over 300 animals carved into it. I don’t just tear up when I see this tree. I cry as I am engulfed in the presence of God’s peace and his promises. Over a tree? Yes, over a tree. I could go on about why Animal Kingdom is my favourite park, but that could take all day. What I will say is God has been doing a lot of things in my life recently that I didn’t want to happen this way. I kept asking why? Why are you taking everything away from me? I can’t dance, I’ve lost friendships, and so much more. I just kept focusing on what I kept losing instead of remembering He knows exactly what His plan is for my life. I consider myself a positive person so I decided to change my thinking. While I’m still working on many things through my walk with God, I am incredibly thankful for everything he has given me. How could I not be? He let me open a company when I was 19. What?! I have no idea what the future holds and while that does scare me a little, I know He has a plan. If you ever find yourself in Animal Kingdom (actually you can do this anywhere), just pause and look at that tree and thank God for every little thing. Literally, all these words Disney uses, Tree of LIFE, DISCOVERY Island, Tree of Life AWAKENS (which is what this picture is from)... Our god brings LIFE, so DISCOVER him today and be AWAKENED. He’s so incredibly jealous for your love.

It was a memory that helped me learn that Canada has it’s very own desert with a sensitive ecosystem that has 100 rare plants and over 300 animals found exclusively in the region. I had this thin memory that my family drove through a desert, complete with palm trees, when I was younger, but I couldn’t figure out how it was possible because my family had never left Canada. I even had photos of it and thought they were from someone else’s vacation that ended up in my photo album. I told my mom about it recently and she told me that it was the Osoyoos Desert and we drove through it on our drive to visit family in Victoria, B.C. It’s funny how memories work, as most of mine from the earlier years are from the stories my mom would tell me about the photographs, but this one was legit, and it’s pretty cool to think that a place that’s known for snow, mountains and pine trees has a desert! #osoyoos #travelcanada #memories #fbf #flashbackfriday #desert

We've heard A LOT of things from pet stores and puppy mills before.... But $1300 for a "rescue" puppy? FALSE! Legitimate rescues adopt out fully vetted dogs that are spayed/neutered for $300. Those rescues do NOT let their adoptable sit behind glass on hard wire just to be purchased by anyone who comes in with cash or credit.
Don't buy the lies that @petsrusomaha is putting out. Our data shows that many of their boxer puppies come from Patrick Fulton a huge puppy mill in Minnesota that has changed names several times to avoid violations following them around. To view more of the puppy mills that we have proof Pets R Us buys from, click here: https://bailingoutbenji.com/puppy-mill-maps/cvi-data/nebraska-pet-store-puppy-mill-connection/

We also want to point out that PRU has been under heat lately for the health of the animals in their "care". Pets in Omaha has the story here: http://petsinomaha.com/social-media-initiates-pets-r-us-animal-control-complaint/10144

Nomadic Shepherdess - Madoi County, Tibet Platueau, Qinghai, China.
Extreme changes in environmental conditions since the 1980’s is forcing nomadic families from their traditional way of life due to climate change and overgrazing increasing grassland degradation, depriving them of their livelihood. Under massive Chinese state engineering policies, many Tibetan nomads from the Yellow River source areas have already been removed from their land to urban areas where they live in concrete compounds facing increasing difficulties, lacking skills or language ability. Fluctuations in the amount of water at the Yellow River source are closely connected to climate change. Any abnormal climatic changes impact the amount of rain brought here. This has a direct effect on the grassland. If rainfall is high one year, grassland vegetation will grow well, but too little rainfall will cause a decline, directly affecting animals that rely on the grasslands. In the last 30 years, the region has lost 17% of its glaciers and the rate of melting ice is now 10 times faster than it has been for the previous 300 years. Environmental study in the region identifies further problems linked to climate change including: dried lakes, advancing deserts, subsidence from melted permafrost, soil erosion and threatened species such as the Tibetan Lynx and the Snow Leopard.

CARNIVORE CLEANING: In case you missed it, our tiger keepers are taking over our social media today in honor of #GlobalTigerDay! Here's their fourth post of the day:

Next up in the day of a tiger keeper – cleaning! From pools to bedrooms and enrichment items, it’s our job to keep our animals' areas clean, so you can’t be afraid to get a little messy if you want to be a zookeeper. Did you know that the majority of our day isn’t interacting with the tigers, but instead cleaning and prepping all the spaces they enjoy? Here's keeper Sara B. refilling a behind-the-scenes pool!

As we've said, tigers are solitary animals, so most of their communication with one another is through scent marking, such as, cheek rubbing, scratching, or urinating. Because of this, when we clean our indoor holding area, we make sure not to “over-clean,” which could possibly take away too much of their scent. Working with our veterinary staff, we’ve determined a rotating schedule of “dry-clean” days and disinfection days to make sure our tigers stay physically and mentally healthy. It’s also great for the environment! By switching to this style of cleaning, our department conserves about 300 gallons of water a month AND we've limited the amount of chemicals going down the drain. It’s a win-win!

We had the most incredible visit @elephantnaturepark in Chiang Mai last week!🐘As Thailand’s first elephant rescue, it has helped many sick and injured elephants who have been saved from the entertainment, trekking and logging industries, and traumatizing street begging practices. It also does important and necessary work educating the public. Elephant Nature Park is an incredible place of hope for the future of Asian elephants, and it was so inspiring to see all of the hard work that is being done to give these beautiful beings a new lease on life.❤️.
The park is also home to 400 dogs (up for adoption), water buffalo rescued by animal rights activists from the meat industry, as well as rescued cats who can be adopted too!🙏🏼.
Elephants are the largest land mammal on our planet and enjoy a plant-based diet, including an abundance of bamboo shoots, grass and all sorts of fruits and greens. 🍌🌽 🍉They consume an astonishing 150 to 300 KG of plant-based food per day! Elephants are an excellent example of one of the largest land animals that consumes a vegan diet and have NO lack of protein - because plants have protein too!! Cut out the middleman (animal based products) and go straight to the source: choose plants!🌱.
P.S. shoutout to my #mancrushmonday for organizing our vegan adventures through Thailand and Vietnam! ❤️🌱✈️ Check out my “Thailand” story highlights to see more photos and videos from our visit to @elephantnaturepark and for everything from our epic trip so far!💕

With this move, we'll be able to prevent an estimated 80,000 plastic bags, 300,000 plastic bottles, and nearly 23,000 plastic straws from entering landfills and the environment each year.
There is roughly 3.15 billion pounds of plastic in our oceans right now and the average American will add to this epidemic by throwing away approximately 185 pounds of plastic per year.
Wildlife like endangered sea turtles and other marine creatures often mistake plastic bags for jellyfish, one of their favorite foods, with tragic consequences. Reducing plastics keeps this type of trash out of our oceans and prevents harm to animals like sea turtles and other marine life. Thank you for helping us save animals in the wild!

I CAN’T EVEN😱‼️‼️‼️Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is appointing a top critic of endangered species protections the head of the agency charged with protecting the critters, while moving to remove protections from nearly 300 animals.
Susan Combs was supposed to serve as Zinke's undersecretary for policy, but because of holdups in the Senate, he has chosen to appoint her as the acting head of the Fish and Wildlife Service.
The decision was taken last month, but news outlets began pointing out her hostility toward the Endangered Species Act on Wednesday. The Washington Post cited a statement in which she likened an animal being placed on the endangered list to a "Scud missile" — the weapon of choice of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. #thisshithastostop #resist #endangeredspecies #animals #dumptrump #dumpzinke #bluewave #staywoke #notmypresident

EXPLORATORY CARIBOU AND MUSKOX HUNT! Seems like every year there is a couple guys that cancel at the last minute. We are approximately a month away from the start of the season and I have a few cancellations that I need to fill in my brand new exploratory hunting area. I have been applying for permits to hunt this new area since 2016 and all the paperwork finally went through in mid June. I have had a group of hunters for the past year willing to go test out this new area at a cost price this fall, however, a few of them have elected to pass up the opportunity leaving me with a few openings for central barren ground caribou and to one hunter the opportunity at a muskox as well.
My main caribou camp is sold out until 2021 and with other Canadian Central Barren Ground Caribou permits dwindling this is a pretty rare opportunity to fill that tag at a reasonable cost.
The area we are going into has not been hunted in the past 15 years and one of the lakes has NEVER been hunted to my knowledge. We are very confident that we will be finding good caribou numbers as well as muskox, wolf and wolverine as well. The area I'm permitted to hunt in now is 24,000 square miles with NO OTHER HUNTING PRESSURE!
Dates are
Aug 16-23th One opening
Aug 23-31st One opening
Aug 31-Sept 6th Two openings

The cost of this hunt is $4000 plus a $3900 air charter per person. The caribou tag is $300 and the hunting license is $60. Plus that rotten 5% tax.
We are going in pretty lightweight and staying mobile, Be prepared to help out where you can. Only two hunters in camp at a time per location. This hunt will be conducted by boat along the lakes and stalking the animals on foot. Plus the fishing in any of these arctic lakes are incredible.
Departure City is Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. Arrive a day before the hunt starts and overnight in a hotel. Someone from my team or me personally will pick you up and bring you down to the floatplane charter dock and fly to camp from there. On the way back book your flight home the day after you are scheduled to arrive back into Yellowknife.
Feel free to share this post!

l can’t imagine what some of you out there are having to go through. Uprooting your entire life, leaving behind your homes and knowing they might not be there when the fires finally subside...my heart just breaks. l did some googling to share how we can help the victims of the California fires. Here’s what l found: Donations for the Thomas Fire Fund can be made by texting UWVC to 41444, on United Way of Ventura County’s website or over the phone at 805-485-6288. Red Cross is accepting applications for volunteers on their website. The Humane Society of Ventura County is in need of donations after taking in more than 300 animals since the fires began Monday. The organization has set up a registry wishlist on Amazon.com with items needed to care for the diverse group of animals currently in its care. Those unable to bring supplies or food to the shelter can make cash donations on HSVC’s website. The Salvation Army Ventura Corps is set up at the Ventura County Fairgrounds and is need of food and water to help evacuees. The Salvation Army also is asking for monetary donations, which can be done by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY or visiting the organization’s website. For those who have evacuated and absolutely need a place to go with your pets, please contact me ([email protected]). We are about 4 hrs away from the affected area, but we have the foster room that you and your pets can stay in if you need to. We have room for you. We can help you.

400 pilot whales stranded on New Zealand’s ‘whale trap’ beach.

More than 400 pilot whales beached themselves on Thursday in one of the worst whale stranding New Zealand has ever seen. The animals washed up on beaches at Farewell Spit on the South Island, a known black spot for whale strandings. At least 300 died overnight before rescuers began trying to refloat animals. Hundreds of volunteers converged on the site to help this morning.

The reasons for beachings remain a mystery. Explanations range from marine noise pollution to suicides, and NASA is even investigating whether solar storms could mess with whales’ navigation. But geography could certainly be a factor, considering several known stranding blackspots share characteristics. “Cape Cod in Massachusetts is also notorious, and there’s another in Tasmania,” says Sharon Livermore, at the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW). “They share similar features such as gently sloping beaches, and the coastal configuration as a whole acts as a whale trap.”
-
At Farewell Spit, where 200 whales beached in 2015, the tide can come in for 5 kilometres, creating a vast stretch of water no more than 3 metres deep at any point, a perilous situation for whales used to deep water. “The water gets shallower, and that’s what gets them disorientated,” says Livermore.

Other factors include whales’ incredibly tight social bonding, which is especially strong within groups of pilot whales. “If one is sick, the rest follow, then geological conditions take over, so it could be a combination of whale disorientation and social bonding that causes these strandings,” she says. “It’s really sad.” Understanding why
Around 100 whales have been refloated so far, according to Project Jonah, an organisation in New Zealand that mobilises stranding rescue operations.

Livermore says that the success of refloating depends partly on the severity of the whales’ injuries and the depth of the water they are pushed into. If the whales are too injured or are refloated in shallow water, they may not survive or may swim back to the beach. (Continued)

Scientific name: Panthera leo
Genus: Panthera
Lifespan: 10 – 14 y (Adult, In Wild), 13 y on average (Captivity)
Diet: Practically any animal they can catch. But most of their victims weigh 50-300 kg (110-660 lbs). The most common prey are zebras, giraffes, pigs, cape buffalo, antelope, and wildebeests.
A single lion kills about 15 large animals each year, filling out its diet with carrion and kills made by other members of the pride. Typically, in the wild more than half their food comes from scavenging.

Male lions usually leave almost all of the hunting to the females, but once a kill is made, they will sometimes drive off the females and cubs in order to be the first to feed upon the prey.

We are very confident that we will be finding good caribou numbers as well as muskox, wolf and wolverine as well. The area I'm permitted to hunt in now is 24,000 square miles with NO OTHER HUNTING PRESSURE!
Dates are
Aug 23-31st One opening
Aug 31-Sept 6th Two openings

The cost of this hunt is $4000 plus a $3900 air charter per person. The caribou tag is $300 and the hunting license is $60. Plus that rotten 5% tax.
We are going in pretty lightweight and staying mobile, Be prepared to help out where you can. Only two hunters in camp at a time per location. This hunt will be conducted by boat along the lakes and stalking the animals on foot. Plus the fishing in any of these arctic lakes are incredible.
Departure City is Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. Arrive a day before the hunt starts and overnight in a hotel. Someone from my team will pick you up and bring you down to the floatplane charter dock and fly to camp from there. On the way back book your flight home the day after you are scheduled to arrive back into Yellowknife.

________________________
1⃣ Royal Jelly is a honey bee secretion that is used in the nutrition of larvae and adult queens. It is collected from each individual queen cell (honeycomb) when the queen larvae are about four days old. Royal Jelly makes workers into queens. It is used as as a source of B vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.Most honey comes from full-time factory bee farmers.
________________________
2⃣ Shellac (E904) Shellac is a coating or glaze derived from the hardened, resinous material secreted by the female Kerria Lacca Insect. Shellac is scraped from the bark of the trees where they live. Often they are heated until they die of heat exhaustion. 300,000 lac insects are killed for every kilogram (2.2 lbs.) Shellac may be found in a furniture polish and varnish, aluminum foil coating, paper coating, hairspray, shampoos, perfume, makeup, printing inks and paints, and much more. Shellac is often called "Confectioner’s glaze” in candy and donut glaze.
________________________
3⃣ Tallow. Rendered beef or mutton fat. Industrial use of tallow can be just about any type of animal fat (e.g. cow, pig, deer). Tallow is in a variety of products from wax paper, crayons, margarines, paints, rubber, lubricants, candles, soaps, lipsticks, shaving creams, other cosmetics. Chemicals (e.g., PCB) can be in animal tallow. Tallow is sometimes known as "Stearic Acid.” **Some Tallow is vegetable sourced.**
________________________
4⃣ Whey. The watery serum that remains after most of the protein and fat have been removed from milk during the cheese-making process. Usually in cakes, cookies, candies, breads, and supplements.
________________________ ➡ The purpose of this series was to connect the animals and the cruelty behind the unknown, sneaky animal ingredients we encounter every day. You’re more likely to encounter these ingredients in processed foods. 👉I will now begin working on a new series on vegan ingredients, because there are A LOT of delicious #AnimalFree goodies in the world. #VegansofIG

LAS AVEJAS ENTRAN ALA LISTA DE ESPECIES EN PELIGRO DE EXTINCIÓN..
Why are bees so important?
1. Bees pollinate 80% of flowering plants on Earth.
2. One single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day.
3. Bee pollination helps to provide nourishing habits for animals like birds and other insects.
4. Bees are major contributors the floral landscapes that we know and love in nature.
5. Bees pollinate 70 of the top 100 human food crops.
6. 1 in 3 bites of food we eat is derived from plants pollinated by bees.
7. Bees pollinate about 75% of fruits, nuts, and vegetables grown in the US.
8. Almonds are totally dependent on bee pollination. No bees, no almonds.
9. Avocados, apples, and cherries are over 90% dependent on bee pollination.
10. Cucumbers, kiwis, and melon are majorly dependent on bee pollination.
Modern day agriculture is killing the bees. They’re dying from pesticides used in the crops they pollinate daily, and the chemical industry has spent millions on PR to deny the link between the use of pesticides and the deaths of our bees.
Companies care more about pollution and poisons than saving lives that do more for us than man-made toxins such as pesticides.
If bees die, we’re all going to die. There used to be 6 million bee hives in the US. Now there’s less than 3 million.
Honey is also one of the most natural and nutritious foods existing. Without honey bees, there will be no honey.
Bees have existed on Earth for 100 million years. We’ve been here for 200,000 years and we’ve already managed to wipe out so many species on this planet? We aren’t benefiting this place. We need to save the bees 🙏🏼🐝 If we don’t, everything will die.

Some situations in rescue punch you in the gut. This morning, after being sent the KTLA story about Kush being shot in the jaw by LAPD and taken to the shelter because the family couldn’t afford to take her to the hospital left us feeling completely sick. Here we have a family who loves their dog-a dog who got shot by the police for merely being in the wrong place at the wrong time-and because they couldn’t afford to go to an emergency hospital had to have their family pet taken to the city shelter. We can’t help but wonder how many other people there are in these situations? These folks were smart and called the press-good on them! The word got out. We heard about it and quickly started to rally to put a plan in place. But how many others are in this type of situation on a daily/weekly/monthly basis? That is what frustrates us the most. The dogs sitting in shelters right now with loving families at home who couldn’t afford medical care for their animals. This is the reality we live with. It haunts us. We are happy to be in a position to help this family reunite with their dog. The fact that finances are the barrier between being able to reunite a pet or not is unacceptable to us. We will do whatever we can, always, to help folks with their animals. Right now, Kush is being discharged from ASEC to go home and rest with plenty of pain meds in tow. We scheduled a consult with Dr Tsugawa - a speciality dental surgeon (he’s amazing) on Monday to find out what needs to be done to fix her jaw. Her family is also in the middle of a housing crisis and have been staying with Norma’s Mom in Hollywood so we will also be helping them find a new place to live. If you would like to donate to their cause you click the link in our bio and in the memo write “for Kush” and once we get the estimate for surgery we will update that as well. So far we paid $165 for her redemption fee, the emergency visit at Asec (probably around $300),and $125 for crate and food. From our previous experience with dental surgeries we are probably looking at around 3-5k. Thanks so much you guys! We are always so grateful for your awesomeness ❤️

It feels longer than flying, but the things we see and experience are really uncomparable!
We drove through charming small new/old towns, thick forest, farm lands, gently rolling hills, mountains, rivers, oceans, lakes, plains, as well as regular highways.
We saw beautiful sunsets, many rainbows, different shades and shapes of cloud, so many different kinds of colorful wild birds, farm animals: a few different types of cows, sheeps, kangaroos (farmed/wild, alive/roadkilled), and a few different kinds of swans/ducks/pelicans.
We talked with people from a dozen of different towns, heard many different human stories and history, saw countless of genuine smiles and greetings from the locals.
Can’t wait to do it again!😍

I thought a few herpetology fans would enjoy a few more videos from this amazing snake and bat videos! This expedition to the Cave of the Hanging Snakes in México with @gustavocostaphotography is a once in a lifetime for me - so for my herper friends here are a few more Segments from the action in the smallest of the tunnels...these snakes are loosely called “boas” by the locals and guides but they’re actually a very different species
🐍 Near the town of Kantemó in southern Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, the cave is a growing destination for adventurous ecotourists. About 300 visitors enter the cave a year, hoping to get a glimpse of the unusual behavior, says Liliana Garcia Ramirez, the director of Amigos de Sian Ka’an, a local nonprofit.
🐍The yellow-red rat snakes (Pseudelaphe flavirufa) are not venomous, Ramirez says, and, as fierce as they look, they aren't a threat to people.
Typically, the relatively small serpentsy prey on rodents, lizards, and other small animals on the ground, in forests. But over time, some have discovered a new niche: bats. (NatGeo)
🐍Six species of bats are known to frequent the cave, giving the snakes a varied spread. When the bats swarm in or out of the cave en masse, the snakes slide down from their crevice homes. Dangling down, they pluck the tasty morsels right out of the air with their mouths.
🐍The adaption is rare but not unheard of—another cave in Puerto Rico is reported to be home to Puerto Rican boas (Epicrates inornatus) that are known to pluck bats out of the air.
In the Yucatan, locals—many of whom are of Maya descent—have long known about the snakes, referring to their lair as “Bat Cave.” It is also sometimes called the Cave of the Hanging Snakes (or serpents).

This zoo is completely different from any regular zoo experience, a short five-minute drive from Dubbo City Regional Airport, is a 300-hectare open-range sanctuary giving visitors the privilege of seeing the wildlife in their natural habitat. There are no cages – the animals are contained by tasteful fences and river moats and they all have massive terrains to wander around. During our exploring, we learnt more about the impressive breeding program @tarongawesternplainszoo and it is heart-warming to see the dedication of the Taronga team to stop extinction and strive for the continuation of these animal species. They work closely with zoos all over the world to share knowledge and make sure our great-grand kids (and beyond) will also have the opportunity to interact with wildlife in their natural habitat 🦁 .

Every second 300 animals are killed in the United States. EVERY. SECOND. Last night I went and gave truck after truck after truck of intelligent, beautiful angels their FIRST sip of water in days after driving hundreds of miles cramped in extreme heat; and their LAST sip of water before a violent, inhumane, horrifying slaughter. They will either enter a gas chamber and be gassed to death, have their throats slit, or be electrocuted to death from an electric floor. Pigs are AS SMART AS DOGS. They can solve puzzles. They feel pain. They experience a wide range of emotion just like you and me. I can’t even tell you the fear and desperation I saw in their eyes. Some of them had lost all hope and refused to even get up. I cannot stop crying and I still feel sick to my stomach. THIS IS THE SAME FOR “FREE RANGE” “ORGANIC” meat. I am so happy to be vegan but even so, last night changed me. I still can’t stop crying. I want to throw up. I am completely changed. I am still so heartbroken and traumatized at what I saw. If you would be devastated at this happening to YOUR cat or dog or pet, please think about why you feel differently about it happening to any other animal. I ask this of you with love.

Mike and I traveled from Delhi to Agra to see the Taj Mahal. We got a driver to take us on the 3+ hour drive. Thank God—the driving & roads are insane. We also had a tour guide, who spoke pretty good English (our driver did not), once we got to Agra. I’d say getting a tour guide is the ONLY way to go. Learning about all the details makes you appreciate the beauty more!!! AND they have some system set up where we never had to wait in lines because we had a guide! This was critical—-lines were wrapped around the Taj Mahal!! They get on average 30k visitors per day! We also toured the Fort of Agra. Where the King (who built Taja Mahal), his 3 wives, 2 favorite daughters lived, and his 300 contrabands (mistresses) 😳. He built the Tahal Mahal for his favorite wife. Both his wife and his tombs are inside the Taj Mahal. It took him 22 years to build the Taj Mahal...with 20,000 workers working each day (mid 1600’s). White Americans are rare around here. I got asked by several people if they could take a picture with me! 😂😂😂. This experience has been very eye opening. The drive to Agra—seeing how people really live. Huts & brick pavers for “houses”, working in the fields by hand, carrying loads of food, water, etc. on their heads, animals (cows and CAMELS) pulling their crops.
Today (Monday here-11 hours ahead) we are going to see some tombs in Delhi. Then we leave in the middle night Monday. Home on Tuesday. And then sleep for a week. 😂.

He is not on Instagram and he doesn’t have his own website either for some reason. He just doesn’t like the internet. There is some images of his work on #erlingvaltyrson
He is born in Ålesund in 1955 and lives in Bergen. He is internationally renowned as a mezzotint printmaker, and he has permanent gallery spaces in Canada, New York, Tokyo and Paris, amongst others. He is big in Japan! He might be more well known there than in Norway even. Google Erling Valtyrson and you will find lots of beautiful works! He has been one of my biggest source of inspiration for many years and he was one of the people who encouraged me to continue drawing and not listen to people who thought that drawing was not a full-fledged form of art. Many people have said to me that I should go into mezzotint printmaking, but I have tried it and I decided to stick to drawing.. It’s just too demanding physical and I am too fond of low maintenance art making like paper and pencils. I have so much respect for Erling and other people that manage this way of making art. Mezzotint is a about 300 year old technique within gravure. I am going back to the exhibition to study his works in peace and quiet since the opening was chaotic and crowded. For those who live in Bergen the exhibition is at Gallery Langegården, look up langegaarden.no for more information. .

He only wants #Men #Warriors #Soldiers #Leaders and people who do the will of good deeds. Yesterday a kid was scared to ride his bike to the store because he saw a police car there. He was only 8 years old and wanted a soda after playing baseball. I remember growing up we use to think the #cops got the bad guys and now they are the bad guys. We children fear you its a problem. We cant be blind however, yes men deserve to be in jail because of their actions and outlook on life real #criminals but I don't see the need for them to be murdered unless they shoot first or molested a child. At that same rate cops are killing civilians at point blank range cold blooded murder and nothing is happening no consequences #nothing. How long we gone stand for injustice? Will there ever be justice? Will the world ever change? I am here to live and here to die. As of now Im not heard though I came back. 300 years from now mankind will look back at this generation of great people and will be viewed as #barbarians and #animals. Pay attention. Dogs no longer chase cats or cars even they are evolving. My point as I close is this. Change starts with you Mr #Police with you Mr #Thug with #You who ever you are #Good or #Bad but eventually the 40million will have to all come together in unity and #war.

Aptly names the Mid-Ocean Ridge, it stretches 40,389 miles and is located on the boundaries of multiple tectonic plates.
.
If we could mine all of the gold from the ocean floor, we would have enough to give every person on earth nine pounds! Unfortunately, there are no cost-effective ways to extract it yet.
.
Many animals which live on the ocean floor are red. Red light is completely absorbed within the first 300 feet of water, meaning that anything the colour red will appear black or grey. This is an excellent form of camouflage.
.
Around certain hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor there exists ecosystems which are completely independent of the sun. They fix energy from toxic compounds, such as hydrogen sulphide.
.
Hawaii was formed by huge underwater volcanoes located on the ocean floor. Volcanoes such as this have created many oceanic islands.

The sheer red rock walls of the canyon soar above dense forests of Ghost Gums, Cycads and Ferns, sheltering them from the harsh desert sun & providing refuge for many native animals. The Park has been home to the Luritja people for around 30,000 years and its flora, fauna and rock formations are best seen on foot. Whether you're an experienced hiker after a challenge or just want to take a stroll & see the sites, there are several walks & hikes to choose from. Thanks for sharing your adventure, @jaybocala 💃🤘

A VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER.☝🏼We are getting alarmed at the growing number of messages we have received with links to various cases of animal cruelty and pet neglect. But what's even more alarming is the demanding and sometimes insulting language that comes with these reports when we do not respond to these messages even though we have repeatedly posted that we do NOT accept reports via social media. Why? Because we are a volunteer organization with limited resources better put to use in actual rather than virtual work. When people ask us to rescue, they should know that we rely heavily on those who come to us for help to do the actual rescue since we do not always have a ready vehicle at our disposal. Rescuing an animal outside also involves pulling out one of our four caretakers who already have their hands full everyday taking care of more than 300 rescues in the shelter. When we do find time to respond to your emails, we will always try our best to help but if people who think they have already "done their duty as animal lovers" with just a phone call or click of a SEND button, then they are sadly mistaken. Our successful rescues always include active and personal participation from the person who reported it as well as willingness for them to foster the animal since the shelter is always full. Animal cruelty reports can only become valid if person reporting is willing to execute an affidavit as an official witness. As much as we would like to be open to everyone's opinion, we would also like to teach our followers the importance of respect. Anything posted that detracts from our common goal of helping animals has no space in our page and those who continue to use abusive language will be promptly blocked. Please understand that our volunteers (who run the social media accounts) already have their hands full with other duties but they have chosen to update our followers and keep the accounts active on their own accord. The least we can do is not give them any unnecessary stress. This is also why all reports must go directly to our email which is handled by our staff. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. #iSupportPAWS #PAWSphilippines

Animals there are well-adapted to life in cold, dark waters. This viperfish (top) and dragonfish (bottom) make their own light to attract prey. Each has a bioluminescent lure, or esca, suspended like bait on a fishing rod from a spine or barbel. The light from these lures tricks zooplankton or small fish into approaching and becoming these fishes' next meal. WHOI was recently awarded $35 million to explore and study this hidden ocean frontier.

This little #cheetah cub has been given a second chance thanks to @ccfcheetah 👌
CCF was informed of a small cheetah cub that was orphaned in the Khomas region of #Namibia. The Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) contacted us on Friday and CCF staff drove out to meet a farmer reported that someone had dropped off a cub at her farm. The farmer was looking after the cub for about a week but she became concerned when the cub started to have health problems. The farmer was not able to provide the right level of care necessary for the cub.

CCF combats livestock loss to wild predators by providing livestock guarding dogs, which typically reduce losses by over 80%. It also trains farmers in proven predator-friendly farming methods, and other aspects of farming from vaccination programmes to business practices. The Field Research & Education Centre hosts school groups for two-day courses, with over 15,000 students attending to date, whilst the school outreach programme has reached over 300,000 more around the country. Research is another key element, with ongoing studies conducted on cheetah ecology, behaviour and genetics. The CCF has also been very active in international efforts to combat trade in these animals as exotic pets.

Tusk has funded CCF to help implement this integrated programme. Close collaboration with local people combined with extensive awareness raising and rigorous research make it a model we are proud to support.

happy #earthday! 🌎 today is a worldwide event in support of environmental protection and conservation. i am privileged to visit the antarctic for a few months each year to work, but one of the reasons i keep returning is so i can share it with those of you who will never have the opportunity to visit. today i’d like to tell you about what i think is the most important conservation effort currently underway in antarctica 🇦🇶 on the eastern side of the antarctic peninsula is the weddell sea, it is a part of the southern ocean and also home to millions of animals, including all of the different species i show you in my photos. the weddell sea is famous for having an abundance of sea ice year-round and also large quantities of krill, the most important link in the food chain on which most antarctic species heavily rely for their survival. in fact antarctic krill make up more biomass than any other species on the planet with approximately 500 million tonnes, corresponding to 300-400 trillion individuals! large industrial fishing vessels come down to the weddell sea to catch 100,000 tonnes of these krill every year to use for animal food and fish bait; this is krill being directly removed from an ecosystem that should be sustaining the millions of penguins, seals and whales who live there, not the unnecessary dietary choices of humans. the major catching nations are south korea, norway, japan and poland. there is now a global campaign underway to make 1.8 million square kilometres of the weddell sea a marine protected area, if this proposal is approved in october of this year it would make it the largest protected area anywhere on earth 🙌
antarctica is the only continent on our planet without a native human population, it’s the last true wilderness we have left and by all means it is worth protecting. i know that sometimes you may feel like antarctica is some far off land a long way from home, but remember that this continent belongs to no nation, it belongs to all of us and it is our duty to protect it. even if you have never visited the antarctic, know that you are a part of this place, and it is a part of you //

Bullfighting is a physical contest that involves humans and animals attempting to publicly subdue, immobilise, or kill a bull, usually according to a set of rules, guidelines, or cultural expectations. There are many different forms and varieties in various locations around the world. Some forms involve dancing around or over a cow or bull, or attempting to grasp an object from the animal.
The Plaza de toros de La Malagueta, the main bullfighting arena for Malaga: Spanish-style bullfighting is called a corrida de toros(literally a "running of the bulls"), tauromaquia or fiesta and is practiced in Spain, where it originates, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Peru, as well as in parts of Southern France and Portugal. In traditional corrida, three toreros, also called matadores or, in French, toréadors, each fight two out of a total of six fighting bulls, each of which is at least four years old and weighs up to about 600 kg (1,300 lb) (with a minimum weight limit of 460 kg (1,010 lb) for the bullrings of the first degree). Bullfighting season in Spain runs from March to October.
April, 2018

They are ripped from their homes and their mothers, bound, starved, and beaten until the point of break, all for the ability to be ridden. As babies they are taught beg in the streets for food because it’s the only way they will survive. These beautiful creatures and poked and prodded with harmful danger tools causing permanent damage, many left blind or with terrible wounds. The atrocities I heard today brought me literally to tears as my heart broke. I am so thankful for Wildlife Friends of Thailand and all that they are doing to rescue, rehabilitate and reintroduce these elephants. What I got today was much more than an experience but an eye opening amount of knowledge into the harsh world these elephants and other photo prop animals go through. Thanks to their efforts and the donations from the visits they will soon be the largest free roaming elephant sanctuary in the world. I am so honored to have had the chance to spend the day helping them care for these elephants 🐘 #elephantsarentforriding #stopanimalexploitation #freetheelephants

For many people living in towns and cities across the world, wildlife is often far removed beamed into living rooms on televisions from half way around the world. But the reality is our lives are inextricably linked to biodiversity. But what is biodiversity and why is it so important to our future? It is the variety of life on Earth, in all its forms and all its interactions. Biodiversity is the most complex feature of our planet and it is the most vital to our own survival. If we were to measure the benefit in monetary terms, the services provided by ecosystems are estimated to be worth trillions of dollars – double the world’s GDP. However, its value is disappearing every day. The extinction rate of species is now thought to be about 1,000 times higher than before humans dominated the planet. Tiger numbers, for example, have plunged by 97% in the last century. Lions are facing critical threats across their range and while over 200,000 once existed just 100 years ago, fewer than 20,000 remain across all of Africa today. Elephant numbers have plummeted from possibly 10 million just a hundred years ago, with just 300,000 savanna elephants remaining. Is hope lost? Not at all! Giving nature the space and protection it needs will enable species and biodiversity to recover, with National Parks, Protected Areas and safe places playing a key role in their survival. African Parks manages one of the most ecologically diverse portfolios consisting of 14 protected areas making up 10.5 million hectares of wild landscapes, across seven of the 11 ecoregions in Africa. Our goal is to manage 20 parks by 2020, ensuring these biodiverse landscapes are protected for future generations – humans and animals alike. To learn more, read the full article: “What is biodiversity and why does it matter to us?” in @guardian (link in bio). Want to join in the fight to protect Africa’s remaining wildlife and wild landscapes, support African Parks where 100% of your donation goes directly to the parks where it matters most. 📷 @willbl #africanparks #biodiversity #wildlife #parks #conservation

My father, Shahid Khokhar was unexpectedly and violently taken from us. It hasn't gotten easier, we've just learned that we have to go on. For a long time the injustice of how he went was all I could fixate on. It's gotten better over the years.
If you knew him, you know he was larger than life. He loved life and he lived his life unapologetically. I try to remember him laughing, he had a really loud infectious laugh, planting his beloved flowers in spring, always working on some bizarre horticulture project like creating a man-made lake at our farm, or replanting 15 year old trees, spending hours in his green house for Orchids that housed over 300 plants or the numerous early mornings I'd hear him having a full conversion with his Africn Grey Parrot, Buddy. There was also his uncontrollable love for wildlife and animals, so I remember coming home from school to find things like, Mccaws, a rare species of sheep, all sorts of exotic birds and yeah there was the one day I came home to a lion cub. That's who he was. As time passes, the pain doesn't dull and I miss him more with each passing day. But with time I've learned to miss him and remember him living and doing his thing, to celebrate him and not mourn him. Because honestly, that makes it a little bit easier. If you knew him, try to do the same today. Abba, you're missed and loved so much.

Three days now and the #winecountryfires just north of us are still burning out of control. The first day, ash literally rained from the sky and blew indoors, covering our furniture. The next day, it was a choking smell, like a campfire that just wouldn’t die. Now there’s almost no odor but it’s blotting out the sun and making us feel tired and slow. Of course, a lot of the lethargy comes from the heaviness of it all— the knowledge of what’s going on up there and what will continue to go on, as long as the first responders struggle to get some sort of containment on the thing. It’s a dreadful thing, this multi-headed monster. There are at least a dozen fires and they’re changing directions and growing all the time, devouring land, houses, animals and sometimes, people. Nearly 300 are missing already and we don’t even know the half of it. My workplace is collecting items, because so many of my co-workers have direct connections up there, we’ll be able to deliver items directly to the source of need. Shelters can’t take any more donations but organizations are springing up, as well, to collect money. One of them is the North Bay Fire Relief at https://rcu-community-fund.squarespace.com/donate/. Or you can mail a check to P.O. Box 6104, Santa Rosa, CA 95406, made out to “RCU Community Fund” with “2017 North Bay Fire Relief” in the memo line. I know y’all have probably already been donating to all the other causes of late, because let’s face it: the apocalypse is expensive. But if you have anything left to give, this would be a good way to do that. DM me if you’re local and want me to take items to my work; we’re collecting for the next week. I can give you a list of what’s needed. Stay safe, y’all. Hug your people.

Vancouver animal services places 200-300 dogs and small animals every year with families and homes that best meet the needs of animals. Sometime we get to share their stories; this is one of them. #happytails
Troska came to the Vancouver Animal Shelter on June 6, 2018 after his owner Rob was found in Stanley Park having a stroke. Troska, a 13 year old Husky lab cross, has been with Rob since he was a puppy and was his constant companion.
While Troska settled in at the shelter, his dad was recovering in hospital. After a remarkably short amount of time Rob was transferred to a rehab facility in Vancouver and was excited when he was allowed a visit from his best friend.
Riding in cars was new for Troska, so this was a scary adventure for him! After having to lift Troska into the truck, the team was on their way! He barked the WHOLE way there!!
Shelter staff arrived at the rehab centre with Troska and made their way to the correct floor. Rob was waiting for his guests. Troska was very excited to see him and it was quite a reunion. It was a great visit and the staff was able to learn a lot more about Troska from Rob.
Animal services were also able to get permission to have the volunteers walk Troska while he was at the shelter and even take him to a local dog pool for swims and outings.
Rob is determined to make the most of his time at rehab, he has even asked his therapists to show him how to safely walk Troska from his wheelchair. The hope is that Rob and Troska will be reunited full-time in the near future.

It contains tombs and temples carved into pink sandstone cliffs and was the capital of the Nabatean Kingdom in 300 B.C.

This was our route from the entrance gates to our goal point, The Ad-Deir Monastery. (It’s about an 11km round-trip trek and 800+ step climb, which took us about 6 hours with stops.) We heard many people don’t make it to the monastery because the route is more difficult and long, especially in the heat. It was true. What was great about that for us was that it was virtually empty when we reached it. All but two of these photos are raw, taken straight from hubby’s iPhone X. Petra is THAT breathtakingly beautiful.
BUT.... if I’m being completely honest, the mistreatment of the animals I witnessed did take some of the charisma and charm away from one of the great Wonders of the World (as I mentioned in my Jordan Stories). I couldn’t stop thinking about it. It’s a serious issue in Petra and something that’s been happening for many years. My complaint (encouraged by Petra Tourism) is only one of an unknown amount, but I hope one day it helps in making a difference and brings forth change. ❤️| #ParrasintheMiddleEast #Petra #Jordan

Our mission here at Noah’s Ark is not only to maintain a secure and caring home for all our current rescues, but to expand and provide more safe habitats for future unfortunate animals. Of course, we cannot do any of this without your help. We rely entirely on donations and the amazing support of our volunteers and group workers. A huge THANK YOU for making all of this possible.

HELP 300 PIGS! 🐷
A GoFundMe was set up to help with the transport, new shelters and fencing where necessary. If you find it in your heart to make a small donation, I know that Leslie would be very grateful as she is stressed beyond herself and it would mean she has one less problem to worry about.
My worst nightmare has come true. Pigs n Paws - or rather the Pigs - have been given notice to leave their home of 7 years. The owner is intending to sell and considers the pigs a liability. The biggest shock is that after 7 years of only one complaint (Trumpet got out and enjoyed the delights of a neighbors' garden) we have been given until the 1st March to remove all 'livestock'. We are currently in negotiation with lawyers to extend this as we consider it to be unreasonable.

We need 10 hectares minimum with one standing dwelling for a bank loan. Working borehole and electricity a must and agricultural zoning also. Seclusion and peace for the animals, they are rescues, abandoned and usually In deep distress, they need quiet. There is also a possibility another farm rescue will join us in the future but for us, now, the emergency is very real.
I work at Montecasino but as I don't travel in peak traffic distance is not that I important. Anything from Magaliesberg to Harties to Bapsfontein. Our budget is 1.1 million - less is better obviously because of all the transport costa, fencing etc

I am heartbroken, stressed and in total panic mode. I need to pull myself towards myself - and I am asking anyone who has liked a picture, loved a pig, sponsored a pig to please help us look. We are running out of time. Please share and help spread the word! @pigsnpaws *LINK IN BIO

1. Bees pollinate 80% of flowering plants on Earth.
2. One single bee colony can pollinate 300 million flowers each day.
3. Bee pollination helps to provide nourishing habits for animals like birds and other insects.
4. Bees are major contributors of the floral landscapes that we know and love in nature.
5. Bees pollinate 70 of the top 100 human food crops.
6. 1 in 3 bites of food we eat is derived from plants pollinated by bees.
7. Bees pollinate about 75% of fruits, nuts, and vegetables grown in the US.
8. Almonds are totally dependent on bee pollination. No bees, no almonds.
9. Avocados, apples, and cherries are over 90% dependent on bee pollination.
10. Cucumbers, kiwis, and melon are majorly dependent on bee pollination.
Modern day agriculture is killing the bees. They’re dying from pesticides used in the crops they pollinate daily, and the chemical industry has spent millions on PR to deny the link between the use of pesticides and the deaths of our bees.
Companies care more about pollution and poisons than saving lives that do more for us than man-made toxins such as pesticides.
If bees die, we’re all going to die. There used to be 6 million bee hives in the US. Now there’s less than 3 million.
Honey is also one of the most natural and nutritious foods existing. Without honey bees, there will be no honey.
Bees have existed on Earth for 100 million years. We’ve been here for 200,000 years and we’ve already managed to wipe out so many species on this planet? We aren’t benefiting this place.
We need to save the bees 🙏🏼🐝 If we don’t, everything will die.

I felt like I was a kid again after going to Japan’s Ueno Zoological Gardens last November 21, 2018. It was a short trip there but me and Celine managed to tour the zoo from its East to its West side, seeing a lot of animals.
Ueno Zoological Gardens is the oldest zoo in Japan, (founded in 1882). They try to recreate the forest and the wild atmosphere and it’s impressive but of course, it’s not as great as the real one.
For the first time ever — I saw a polar bear! Look how cute he is. I was kind of sad though that he was just alone in his space. I’m not an animal expert but I think he needs a companion and some real ice.
Anyway, the entrance for the zoo is 600 yen for adults, 300 yen for ages 13-16, and it’s free for kids under 12. They have a lot of food stalls inside so you won’t get hungry, lots of open space to relax, has a monorail to go from East to West (vice versa), and a really nice view of the West side.

The sad news comes just a few days after another 113 turtles were found dead, washed ashore in Mexico’s Chiapas state, around 100 miles from Oaxaca, reports National Geographic.

"That bite of summer has well and truly come early this year and with that heat, comes snakes.
3000 bites are reported annually.
300-500 hospitalisations
2-3 deaths annually.

Average time to death is 12 hours. The urban myth that you are bitten in the yard and die before you can walk from your chook pen back to the house is a load of rubbish.

While not new, the management of snake bite (like a flood/fire evacuation plan or CPR) should be refreshed each season.

Let’s start with a
Basic overview.

There are five genus of snakes that will harm us (seriously)
Browns, Blacks, Adders, Tigers and Taipans.

All snake venom is made up of huge proteins (like egg white). When bitten, a snake injects some venom into the meat of your limb (NOT into your blood). This venom can not be absorbed into the blood stream from the bite site.

It travels in a fluid transport system in your body called the lymphatic system (not the blood stream). Now this fluid (lymph) is moved differently to blood.
Your heart pumps blood around, so even when you are lying dead still, your blood still circulates around the body. Lymph fluid is different. It moves around with physical muscle movement like bending your arm, bending knees, wriggling fingers and toes, walking/exercise etc.

Now here is the thing. Lymph fluid becomes blood after these lymph vessels converge to form one of two large vessels (lymphatic trunks)which are connected to veins at the base of the neck.
Back to the snake bite site.
When bitten, the venom has been injected into this lymph fluid (which makes up the bulk of the water in your tissues). The only way that the venom can get into your blood stream is to be moved from the bite site in the lymphatic vessels. The only way to do this is to physically move the limbs that were bitten.

Stay still!!! Venom can’t move if the victim doesn’t move.
Stay still!! Remember people are not bitten into their blood stream.

We are so grateful to you Katy for sharing your experience and raising awareness for shark and marine conservation. Continue reading below for a short excerpt from the article and read the full version by visiting the “Media” page at the bottom of our website and clicking the Sport Diver logo. “I never thought I would be in open ocean, just meters away from 30 highly skilled predators, looking 300 feet down, and thinking about such trivial things as where to eat tuna-poke when we got back on land? It was so surreal, watching with wide eyes and yelling back to the boat 'oh God, they're so beautiful'. It makes me wonder why I waited so long to experience this in the first place? After all was said and done, our trip back was a sobering experience; we were informed about the insane number of threats these animals deal with on a daily basis. [...] My only wish is that everyone could drop what they're doing right now, go to Hawaii, and have this experience. In 20 years, sharks may become a rare creature in the sea, with an estimated 100 million sharks currently being killed each year. I can't even digest those numbers. When I returned to the mainland, the very next night everything hit home when my friend talked me into visiting the only Chinese restaurant open at 2am, (which is never a smart idea, by the way…). On the menu was shark fin soup, in four different varieties; these options were crossed out, but it was a stark reminder that at one time you could order this as easily as you could a wonton soup. When I ask people I meet if they've ever tried scuba diving, the first response I hear is “Well, I would love to, but sharks…” Now I am armed with facts, first-hand experience, and with an incredible love for these magnificent beauties of the ocean.”

More than 1,300 animals were seized during a weeklong raid of a property in Pierce County, Wisconsin.

According to the Pierce County Sheriff's Office, the U.S. Marshall Service executed an arrest warrant for Houa Dia Yang at a rural Spring Valley home on Aug. 30. The sheriff's office assisted and found evidence of a cockfighting and dogfighting operation. "The work that went into that setup and what they planned to do with the animals was unbelievable," said Sheriff Nancy Hove.
Officers also located an indoor marijuana growing operation, a pound of dried marijuana and a safe containing four pounds of methamphetamine. The property owner, Senyen Vang, was arrested on suspicion of drug possession.

Yang was arrested and faces possible charges in Minnesota. Jessica Rushin is with the American Society for the Prevention and Cruelty to Animals. The agency was called in when animals were seen living in "deplorable conditions throughout the property." "They lacked food, water and obvious medical care," Rushin said.

According to the sheriff's office and ASPCA, dogs were found tied to heavy chains and had scars and injuries that are associated with dog fighting. There was an arena for training that included treadmills to boost the dogs' stamina.
Rushin said the pitbulls were also placed strategically apart. "They don't want them to make contact with each other, but keep them close by because it amps them up and increases their excitement and aggression," she said.

The chickens located at the property showed physical alterations commonly associated with cockfighting. There were also chicks and eggs being cultivated.
In all, more than 1,300 animals were taken from the property. The animals are being transported to ASPCA temporary shelters, where they will receive forensic exams, have their injuries documented and get medical care. According to the Pierce County Sheriff's Office, this is the second large-scale animal cruelty case the sheriff's office has encountered in the past two years.

In Wisconsin, animal cruelty and fighting charges are felonies and carry a possible prison sentence of three years and a $10,000 fine.

I wanted to share a powerful tale of hope, published today.

A feature story written by Sharon Guynup and multimedia piece co-produced with Sharon and filmed by me, it follows the daring, dangerous rescue of 13 animals from a bombed-out zoo just outside Aleppo—the last of the 300 animals that were housed there when the Syrian civil war broke out six years ago. Rescued by Four Paws International from Vienna Austria - @four_paws_international
Dodging bombs and bullets, dozens and dozens of people helped rescue the last survivors from an abandoned zoo in Aleppo. 13 saved - 300 animals killed or sold.

The Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) is taking groundbreaking steps to bring justice to an abused horse – and hopefully, prevent other animals from being mistreated in the future. The legal advocacy organization is representing the horse, Justice, who is now a party to a lawsuit filed against his abuser. If successful, the lawsuit will be the first to establish that animals have a legal right to sue their abusers. This would be a real breakthrough since no animal has yet received a legal recognition of this kind.

The eight-year-old Justice, formerly known as Shadow, was severely neglected for months, left outside in cold weather without adequate food and shelter. When he was rescued, the horse was emaciated, riddled with frostbite, lice, and rain rot. Justice was 300 pounds underweight and had suffered permanent physical as well as psychological injuries that will now require specialized medical care and treatment for the rest of his life. He was surrendered to Sound Equine Options, an Oregon horse rescue and rehabilitation organization, and the cost of his care makes finding a forever home for him very difficult.

The person responsible for Justice’s suffering was his former “owner,” Gwendolyn Vercher, Care2 reports. In 2017, she pled guilty to criminal animal neglect and agreed to pay restitution only for the cost of Justice’s care prior to July 6, 2017. The newly-filed lawsuit seeks damages for the horse’s care since that time and going forward. Any funds obtained through the lawsuit would be placed in a legal trust established especially to pay for the animal’s care.

UPDATE Tuesday August 21: #DorisBevierClark, 75, was arrested today on multiple charges of #animalcruelty after law enforcement seized nearly 300 animals from her home early last week.
She is charged with a Class A misdemeanor punishable with up to 180 days in prison and a possible 4,000 fine. She was released from the #GrimesCounty jail Tuesday after posting bail for a bond in the amount of $10,000.

ANDERSON, Texas—Grimes County authorities confirmed Friday a woman with a history of animal neglect and maltreatment has been investigated twice.
On Wednesday, an anonymous tip led investigators to the house off Highway 30 in Carlos.
That’s where authorities discovered nearly 300 animals living in filthy conditions.
The Grimes County Livestock Officer said it’s something he’s seen before.
“When you walk up to the gate which is a long way from the house, you could smell it,” said Livestock Officer Randy Creele.
“It was by far the worst I've ever seen,” he added.
In July of 2010, Creele investigated the same house where officials found multiple dead horses just thrown in the backyard.
Investigators said the horses that were still alive, suffered from extreme malnourishment, and some were crippled.
“Most of them were just skin and bones,” said Creele.
County officials called the SPCA to help saying they didn’t have the facilities to take in all the horses.
Creele said the SPCA officials were trying to avoid a seizure warrant because it would delay getting the horses off the property and into medical care.
“So, he (SPCA) cut a deal with her and agreed that there wouldn’t be any charges filed,” said Creele. “She’d just turn over the horses and he let her keep, I want to say, 40 horses and some dogs,” he added.
Official’s reports say that the SPCA left that day with 105 horses and 40 assorted dogs.
Creele went by the property multiple times after that, and he said the remainder of the animals were being cared for.
“I’d go out there in the mornings, and she’d be out back, cleaning the kennels. I thought ‘You know this lady turned around,’” said Creele.
But, that didn’t last too long. On Tuesday, authorities discovered 242 dogs and 49 horses, all in horrible condition.

I can’t stand when i hear ignorant comments like Vegans are weak, or deficient. Do you know how many TOP athletes are VEGAN or that ALL hospitals are filled with dead flesh eaters. @torre.washington @badassvegan @iamdavidhcarter @ryannelsonfitness and many more can easily attest that vegans are not weak. In fact the LARGEST land mammals are all VEGAN. The longest life span of humans is based on a plant based diet and it even includes soy. Its time to wake up and face the cold hearted facts. We all need a reality check. I’m not even going to touch on the animals or sustainability because that’s the easy part to understand. Try understanding Veganism on a energetic level.

When the shelters are completely full and have nowhere to put the animals. A stressful and emotional time for the staff and volunteers. So we try to reach out to friends and family that are looking to buy animals to please consider adopting from their local shelters. We try to network animals to rescues even though they are probably full too, but they still work hard to take more into their rescue. If you can't adopt there are many ways you can help. Share our posts, volunteer, or become a foster for your local shelter or rescue.
At the South LA Shelter out of about 300 dogs there are about 200 available for adoption! Out of about 160 cats there are about 70 cats available for adoption.

During this time, staff and volunteers work extra hard but still get overwhelmed by the amount of animals that come into the shelter. We ask that you show a little compassion as they fight against all odds. #appreciatestaff #workneverends

I am going to be very blunt here for a moment because I am Bob’s protector and I will always stand up for him - as well as every animal under my care. Let me clear my throat... One of the most disturbing aspects about sharing everything with the world about Rancho Relaxo constantly is the naysayers. The people who sit back and diagnose animals through computer or phone screens. The people who say to throw in the towel. The people who say that all of the money spent on Bob would be better off spent on healthier animals. F*% # that. I need to step down and become a tad unprofessional for a few minutes. Forgive me. I will repeat, [email protected]&% THAT!!!!!!! Yes. EPM can be deadly. It can be debilitating. It can create endless suffering. Sure. BUT! Bob is not in any pain. We JUST received Bob’s diagnosis and he was JUST put on medication to stop the progression of his EPM, as well as improve his balance/lameness by 2-3 levels. Horses with EPM are put on medication for 30 days before being re-evaluated. You know... by PROFESSIONAL veterinarians. Some of the best in the entire country, I might add. They are the ones I will take advice from when it comes to euthanasia. Not keyboard webMD self appointed vets in the comment section. Trust that every decision I make, as well as our board members at Rancho Relaxo, is made with the animal’s best interest in mind. I hope to God that if I ever encounter a setback like Bob’s, my friends and family do not give up on me. If you do not agree with our perseverance for the animals, I urge you to take a step back and find other organizations that stick with only healthy animals. It is not our style to back out on a rescue because it seems too challenging. I promise you all, you will see Bob trot through an open field with better balance than he has now. I promise. And Bob, if you are reading this... I’ve got your back. I will flip you over 300 more times if I have to - by myself, in the pouring rain as long as you still want to live. And I can tell, at this point in time, that is exactly what you want to do.

This was my entire life last year... well actually add 100 turkeys, 5 hogs, 1000ish rabbits, and 300 broilers to my nearly 1000 pasture raised ducks, and that was my spring/summer/fall last year... driving hours to get feed or process animals about every other week, moving animals, breeding bunnies, making sure every animal was as cool as possible, farmers markets, restaurant deliveries, invoicing, marketing, and the list goes on... and on and on! it was way more than a full time job. I was more in shape than ever, more exhausted and stressed than ever too! Farming with animal welfare, regeneration, and sustainability all at the top of the list is one of the hardest jobs out there I believe. It’s crazy to me how much i miss it... I am proud of all I did those years of farming, but I’m also thankful that the burden of a mortgage, bills and life expenses were never on me as the farmer in the family. I never wanted/expected to be rich from the farm, I was just doing what I loved, and making a tiny profit for the hardest work I’ve ever done. I’m so glad I was able to make the transition into homesteading this past year, and focus on growing food for my family. I can’t encourage you all enough to grow at LEAST one thing you eat for yourself. I’m talking a pot of salad greens outside your door, or planting a couple fruit trees in the yard, add some bee hives, or backyard rabbits and chickens! I promise you can do it folks! Even though I know you can do it, if you decide you don’t have time for that, then please find a farmer who cares about how they are growing food, and raising animals and support them! Thank them for caring and being the change in the food system, and buy as much as you can from them! Find other ways to save money, and don’t skimp on food! It’s your fuel... it’s worth it to spend more on your food than arguably anything else! And thank you farmers every time you shop with them! They work so hard for not much in return!!! #bluewhistlerfarm #growingmyownfood #homesteading #smallfarm

Here in #Skarvheimen, with Jotunheimen National Park to the north and Hardangervidda Mountain Plateau to the south, Jon and his sons have roughly 1,300 sheep on pasture the entire summer. Jon has never been anything other than a sheep farmer and he finds the interaction between sheep, dog and human being to be highly rewarding.
__
Norwegian lamb is of world-class quality, boasts Jon. We get 2.5 to 3 kilos better growth in the mountains than in the wooded pasture. At the same time, we get contented animals and we enjoy being up here, says Jon with a smile.
__
Around the Sand family's cabin, a symphony of bells and bleating can be heard while the dogs help to drive the sheep on board the animal transporter. It takes 350 animals, and in a few hectic September days in Skarvheimen, all 1,300 of the sheep are driven home to the farm in Lier, not far from #Oslo. Once there, they will be separated, sorted and shorn. For some of them, this was the last time they get to experience the mountain, while others will be back on pasture in Skarvheimen next year.
_____________
NORWEGIAN SHEEP FACTS
Roughly two million sheep graze freely on pasture in Norway's outlying areas every summer The Norwegian white sheep, which incidentally can be black or brown, is the most common sheep breed. Other Norwegian sheep breeds you most likely encounter while travelling through Norway are the Spjælsau, the Fuglestadbrogete sau, the Blæset sau and Old Norwegian sheep.

Sheep = Sau
Lamb = Lam

The Atlanta-based airline describes its ban as an "enhancement" to its policy on animals in passenger areas. #Delta will also limit travelers to a single emotional support animal per flight. The changes, announced this week, take effect July 10. "It's a bit nuts because Delta is actually my preferred airline to fly with my service dog," said Fiona Gilbert of the San Francisco area, who said she flew about 300,000 miles with Delta in the past year with her pit bull-type dog, Koda.

Gilbert has a degenerative neurological condition, and Koda can sense when she might have a seizure and then get help if needed, she said. "He's basically my alert system," she said. "He's my emergency response system. I trust him more than I trust myself when it comes to not feeling well. He's been trained to get help if I need him to. Koda and I are a team - we're inseparable." Now, Gilbert has 20 trips planned with Delta later this year and is scrambling to figure out what to do.

Delta said its ban on pit bull-type dogs responds to "growing safety concerns" after several employees were bitten, the airline said in a statement. "We must err on the side of safety," Delta said in a statement Friday. "Most recently, two Delta employees were bit by a pit bull traveling as a support animal last week. We struggled with the decision to expand the ban to service animals, knowing that some customers have legitimate needs, but we have determined that untrained, pit bull-type dogs posing as both service and support animals are a potential safety risk." The bite happened during the boarding process for Delta flight 295 from Atlanta to Narita, Japan, the airline said.

But the ban is prompting a social media backlash, and is being criticized by several animal groups.

Delta "should resist unwarranted breed prejudice and rescind its breed ban," Matt Bershadker, president and CEO of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, said in a statement Thursday.

This is a photo of one of the 300 rescued pigs at Rooterville animal sanctuary. The pigs come from factory farms and homes where they were neglected as pets.

Going #Vegan two years ago was one of the best decisions I've made—for animals, my health, and the planet.

Animal agriculture is the leading cause of climate change, deforestation, ocean dead zones, freshwater depletion, species extinction, fisheries depletion, global hunger, and antibiotic resistance.

That's bad news in rural communities, where many people rely on streams and rivers to drink, wash, and farm. Luckily, coffee from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms is grown in harmony with nature, and protecting waterways is one of many stringent criteria for achieving this certification.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
☕️In Rwanda, for example, we’ve worked with local, smallholder farmers to introduce lagoon systems around coffee washing stations that treat wastewater. In Oaxaca, we’ve been working with young people in coffee farming communities to introduce agroforestry—the cultivation of native trees alongside coffee bushes—which stabilizes the microclimate, keeping water in the ground and protecting critical biodiversity... including animals, birds, and plants.🌱⁣
⁣⁣
🐸An easy way to support clean and safe water is to #FollowTheFrog and choose products that carry the Rainforest Alliance Certified “green frog” seal. But for people and nature to truly thrive in harmony, that should be just one of many actions. Our personal, daily water-saving practices can lead to even further positive environmental impacts.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

According to @natgeo, Bryan Wallace, a marine biologist, said that it seems as though the sea turtles may have fallen victim to a so-called “ghost net.” -
-
Ghost nets are commercial #fishingnets that have been lost, abandoned, or discarded at sea. In our oceans, it’s estimated that there are thousands of miles of nets currently threatening marine life.

Photos by @ceibahamas and @oceanx | OceanX's marine research vessel, the MV Alucia, a ship heavily involved in the filming of Blue Planet II, was recently on a mission to Exuma Sound, The Bahamas to explore the deep ocean using its Triton submersible 'Nadir'. Although the deep-sea is characterized by high pressure, cold temperatures, and complete darkness, incredible organisms have adapted to live their entire lives in this alien world. During the Alucia's mission just off of Cape Eleuthera, the science team, led by the University of Florida's Whitney Lab of Marine Bioscience and the Cape Eleuthera Institute, discovered countless invertebrates along silt-covered ridges between 300-800 meters deep, including this gelatinous sea cucumber and red arrow crab. Sharks also frequented the subs during baited camera deployments, such as this prehistoric-looking bluntnose sixgill shark that can grow to over seven meters in length. These animals and the deep ocean ecosystems that they live in are increasingly under threat from commercial fisheries and resource extraction industries, often times before we fully understand what they are.

Regrann from @kniqhtfallrescuenetwork - Regrann from @dixie812 - My dear friends,

I hate to stop our Online Pawction Party, but... rescue never stops.

Remember the recent cruelty seizure of almost 300 animals near Carlos Texas? We are prepping to take as many littles as we possible can squeeze in our program. They start arriving this weekend.

If you've EVER wanted to foster for us, my friends, NOW is the time. They are mostly Chinese Cresteds and white fluffy mixes, but be warned... They are in *horrible* condition.

We beg you to sign up to foster IMMEDIATELY. The more fosters we have, the more babies we can save. We cover all expenses and supplies. You just provide the love.

When you see cases like this, it's easy to say "Oh my gosh, that's so sad that I don't even wanna think about it." I urge you to change your perspective. Feel hopeless no longer. Instead, feel excited that your local rescue is doing something to help, and be empowered by becoming part of the solution!

We will be here fighting for them regardless.... Will you?

Dragonflies were some of the first winged insects to evolve, some 300 million years ago. Modern dragonflies have wingspans of only two to five inches, but fossil dragonflies have been found with wingspans of up to two feet!
.
In their larval stage, which can last up to two years, dragonflies are aquatic and eat just about anything — tadpoles, mosquitoes, fish, other insect larvae and even each other!
.
Dragonflies catch their insect prey by grabbing them with their feet. They are so efficient in their hunting that, in one Harvard University study, the dragonflies caught 90 to 95 percent of the prey released into their enclosure!
.
Some adult dragonflies live for only a few weeks while others live up to a year.
.
Dragonflies, which eat insects as adults, are a great control on the mosquito population. A single dragonfly can eat hundreds of mosquitoes per day.

What’s your favorite species of octopus? ➡️ Around 300 species of octopus are recognised globally. Their soft bodies can rapidly alter shape, making for quick getaways and sneaky chases. Octopuses have a complex nervous system and excellent sight, and are among the most intelligent and behaviourally diverse of all invertebrates. The animals live in various regions of the ocean including coral reefs, on the sea bed and at abyssal depths eating a variety of prey food from prawns to polychaete worms.

This is my friend William Butala and his mother Masika Josephine. They are Congolese refugees living in Nakivale Refugee Settlement Uganda. There are seven family members living in a small space. On April 24, 2014 rebels came onto their land at Oicha in the city of Beni Kanzuli seized the animals, killed Williams father, Felix Butala, killed the neighbors, other family members, many children.
Many people here at Nakivale and refugee camps all over the world have their story of extreme hardship.
William arrived in the camp at 17 completely lost with little wealth and nothing to do. He did arts and crafts with his mother in Congo and started making bags and other crafts out of trash, plastic bags, yarn. He paints, draws, sculpts with what little he can acquire. He teaches children and young adults to use their hands and express themselves for free because it helps him and his students heal and have something productive to do. I asked him how much it would cost to pay for materials and to pay him a salary to make arts and crafts with children full time. His response was 300,000 Ugandan schillings per month, that's about 80.00$. While I've been in Uganda for the last 30 days painting people's homes and stores for free, a few people have sent me money to help out, I've received 400.00$ via PayPal and that money is going towards hiring William Butala. I'm sending 2,500$ total for a years salary and to also purchase tents that can be moved with a cart so William can take his school to different places. The money will be given monthly through my Congolese refugee friend, Patrick that runs a place called Opportunigee.
I have an affiliation with several NGO non profit groups but this will not be through them, no official crowd funding, no rewards.
I'm just doing it fast and simple, I don't have time to convince people. If you want to help pay for this, send it to my personal PayPal [email protected]
All money will go to William Butala's salary, materials, matts and tents.
Thank you for reading this,
Shrine

When brands stand for something - and give a damn!
I was blown away when I found out that 300 million tires are thrown into landfills each year...and thats just the US alone! *** gasp*** 😱

But @streamlet.official is making this global problem their passion, and handcrafts truly unique, made to last journals out of discarded tires!

Talk about a totally creative, eco- friendly solution to help combat our wasteful ways, and prevent more tires from ending up in the landfill! I'm such a big fan of recycling - theres nothing more sustainable than to repurpose and breathe new life into what already exists...I just love the texture of the cover!

Plus, it's vegan, with tree- free pages- making it a triple win for the health of our people, animals, and the planet! 🌏♻️ #sponsored #streamlet #journal #recycled #upcycle #reducereuserecycle #sustainable #ecofriendly #ethical #vegan #veganmodel #crueltyfree #ecoconscious #treefree #handmade #gogreen #consciousconsumer

There are only about 300 of these guys in Kruger (15,000 square miles) and just a little over 5,000 in the world. Our safari guide said it was the first one he has seen since March of this year. We noticed he was having a hard time walking, and a large wound in his shoulder. We called the park ranger to report and it turns out they have been looking for this Rhino as he was badly injured from a fight with another male. We checked in this evening and the latest report is that his wound is very septic and he may not make it 😞. Save the Rhinos: http://rhinos.org/give/

We are Saving the lions of Nairobi, one village at a time! THE ISSUE- Climate change and human population expansion are creating more and more human/wildlife conflicts. Lions are getting dangerously close to villages, threatening the safety of the lions and the safety of local villagers. ... We are Saving the lions of Nairobi, one village at a time!

THE ISSUE- Climate change and human population expansion are creating more and more human/wildlife conflicts. Lions are getting dangerously close to villages, threatening the safety of the lions and the safety of local villagers. As villages grow in size, reducing African lion free rangelands, lion conflicts escalate, usually culminating into a full-on lion hunt.
For years,  Maasai communities living on the edge of the Nairobi National Park have dealt with loss of life due to lions during the wet season as herds of impala, zebra and buffalo move out of the park into community land, lions follow them into the communities and attack domestic animals, and sometimes people.
SOLUTION- LEDs (Lion Entry Deterrents) is a system of flashing lights that create an illusion of a watchman on guard that prevents lions from entering the villages. In essence, this creates a win-win situation for all where people and domestic animals are safe from predators and the lions are safe from retaliatory attacks. Reports on lighted villages conducted in recent years indicate a 95% decrease in lion conflicts.

With the population of lions only at 2000 in Kenya and a global decline in the number of big cats, it's important that we conserve these majestic animals while ensuring the safety of the people who share the land.
OUR MISSION - Our crew is currently implementing long-term sustainable solutions including solar power and specialized LEDs (strobes) that deter lions from entering villages.
Each village boma installation and maintenance costs approximately $300 USD + transportation and administration. An average sized village requires 4-10 lights.

I don’t believe in any religion that tells you to kill; humans or animals, and I will fight for both until I can fight no more.
Anyone who knows me knows how I feel about religion anyway. I was born Christian (whatever that means) but more importantly I was born with an insatiable desire to ask questions and not be content with “it was written”.
My “religion” is kindness. And it doesn’t have to be written anywhere for me to know in my heart what is right and what is wrong.
I’m not condemning any religion or what you chose to believe in; each to their own.
I’m condemning senseless killing of sentient beings.

During Eid tens of millions of animals are subjected to some of the most horrific treatments imaginable. Many suffer from psychological and physiological torture before they are mercilessly massacred (often in front of each other)- ironically under the name of the faith that mandates the opposite.

But apart from all the innocent souls taken over this holiday, there is also an environmental factor we can’t ignore;
The verses in Surah Al Hajj outlining the sacrifice were revealed in the first year after the Prophet arrived in Medina. The Muslim population at that time was estimated at about 200-300. The number of animals they would have sacrificed can be safely estimated at about a dozen or hundred.
We are now fast approaching 2,000,000,000 (billion) Muslims.
We are no longer collectively sacrificing a few dozen or some hundred animals, we are now killing tens of millions on Eid alone.
The sheer number slaughtered (not including the ones killed throughout the rest of the year) exacts a horrific toll on both the animals and the planet.
This is simply unsustainable.

William Ralph Inge, an 18th century Anglican Bishop said it best;
“We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form”.
To all the animals losing their lives at the hands of humans, at any time, I’m so sorry 💔

Padar Island is the third largest island in the Komodo National Park. It is located in the south central of the park, between Komodo and Rinca Island.
In the past, Padar was one of the island in Komodo where there were dragons live. Along with the illegal hunting activities by human being, they are slowly disappeared and almost unable to see them anymore, even once. The cause is simply because of the lack of foods, like deer and wild boar. Their extinction can be because they just died alone without any food to eat or prolonged hunger or they can be migrated to nearest island, Rinca. Nowadays, the island remains empty with no dragons. However, other wild animals such as wild boars are still around daily.
Although the island has no dragons existed, the island is one of the best charming spot of trekking. Those who love photographic, this is perhaps the best place for spectacular photos.
