  • As elephants go, so go the trees

    Endangered Animals News -- ScienceDaily
    18 Nov 2014 | 9:45 am
    Overhunting has been disastrous for elephants, but their forest habitats have also been caught in the crossfire. A first-of-its-kind study shows that the dramatic loss of elephants, which disperse seeds after eating vegetation, is leading to the local extinction of a dominant tree species, with likely cascading effects for other forest life.

    Who Speaks For Animals There were two significant milestones yesterday in the deepening struggle over the future of animals in America: who gets to speak for them and decide their fate. They both suggest a dramatic change in public attitudes about the future of animals in our world and growing unease over the tactics and ideology of the movement that claims to speak for animals and their rights. In New York City, after a bruising and year-long political struggle that has the mayor and people who call themselves animal rights activists pitted against the New York Carriage horses, owners and…

  • Two Friends: Tableau

    20 Nov 2014 | 6:29 pm
    Two Friends: Tableau I went to see my friend Scott Carrino this afternoon, it was our weekly bartered lesson – I teach writing, he is teaching me Tai Chi. I've had a painful muscle condition in recent weeks, I think it was sparked by some of the medication I am on following my heart surgery, it makes sleeping and some movements difficult. Scott is struggling in  his very busy world to make time for his writing and music. He is a creative soul, the spark burns very brightly within, and so it was a time of some struggle for both of us. I told him that writing, like Tai Chi, must be done…
  • Red’s Dilemma: A Flock Divided

    20 Nov 2014 | 6:17 pm
    A Flock Divided There is nothing a border collie hates more than a flock of sheep divided. The sheep were having their morning hay feed when Zelda decided to branch off and go into the barn, Red moved up from his lie-down position and here is where border collies get to make decisions. Does he move the bulk of the sheep over to Zelda or does he figure out a way to get Zelda back with the flock. He and Zelda got into a stare-down, she wasn't moving, he wasn't yielding. I decided to help him out, I gave a "come-bye" (go clockwise) command and he pushed Zelda out of the barn and right to the…

  • Jane Goodall and John Oliver Debate Putting Hats on Chimps

    Susan Cosier
    28 Oct 2014 | 5:14 am
    By Susan Cosier We all know biologist Jane Goodall spent years of her youth living with chimpanzees in the forests of Tanzania. But did she ever try to put a monocle and top hat on one of them? Comedian John Oliver—never one to shy away from the tough questions—got to the bottom of wild primate behavior in his interview with one of conservation’s favorite ladies. For over 50 years, Goodall’s chimpanzee research has helped us protect and respect our closest animal relatives, which now number fewer than 200,000 in the wild. That represents a 50-percent decline since Goodall started her…
  • Stop Doodling in Our National Parks!

    27 Oct 2014 | 5:36 am
    By Susan Cosier Art has its place, but it’s not in our country’s national parks—unless, of course, we’re talking ancient glyphs, Bob-Ross-style landscapes, photography (whether by Ansel Adams or dear old dad), and other mediums of the “leave only footprints” variety. But that’s not the kind of artistic expression (ahem, vandalism) Casey Nocket allegedly unleashed this summer on our natural treasures. Armed with acrylic paint, the 21-year-old New Yorker defaced up to 10 national parks in five states across the West, including Yosemite, Utah’s Canyonlands, and Oregon’s Crater…

    24 Oct 2014 | 5:28 am
    By Susan Cosier If you thought the California drought was bad (and it is), take a look at what's happening in southeastern Brazil. These satellite images of the Jaguari Reservoirone of the main water sources for São Paulo, South America's largest cityshow how much water levels have dropped in just one year. In the lower photo, taken in August, the resevoir is only at 3 to 5 percent of its carrying capacity. São Paulo, home to 21 million people, hasn't seen a drought as bad as this in 80 years. Its coffee and sugar cane crops are shriveling, and its hydroelectric dams may stop churning.
  • Different Worlds, Connected by Climate Change

    Brian Palmer
    23 Oct 2014 | 1:02 pm
    By Brian Palmer Life in Thule, Greenland, and the Pacific nation of Tuvalu couldn’t be more different. At 750 miles above the Arctic Circle, Thule is among the northernmost inhabited places on earth. In July it reaches an average high of 52 degrees. Tuvalu is a tropical island where the temperature rarely drops below 75, even in the middle of the night. But the two seaside communities have at least one thing in common: Climate change threatens them both. Melting sea ice has dramatically shortened the hunting season in northern Greenland, while halfway across the globe, rising seas threaten…

    When a viral infection spread through five genetically identical mice in a row, the virus replicated faster and became more virulent or severe. But when the infection spread one-by-one through five genetically diverse mice, the virus had trouble adapting and became less virulent. A new study suggests that increased genetic diversity should be promoted in livestock and in captive-bred endangered species so as to limit their risk of getting deadly infections.

I knew the location of every sett in the woods around my childhood home, but rarely saw them with my own eyes. Even now I’m a professional naturalist, the majority of my badger encounters come from tracking their teddy bear paw prints, probing richly scented communal latrines, or plucking stiff guard hairs from where low-slung bellies have caught barbed wire…

    Dogs are known for their loyalty to their humans and every now and then they go above and beyond to prove this trait. A beagle-mix named Buddy in Mason, Texas, took loyalty to a whole new level a few weeks ago when his owner was loaded into an ambulance to be taken to the hospital. Part way through the trip it was discovered that Buddy was riding on the back of the ambulance to stay with his human.

    It is a devastating thing to find out that your child is autistic and it is a wonderful blessing when an animal comes into your lives that helps to make your child's life just a little better. For Iris Grace Halmshaw, an amazing 4-year-old artist, this help came in the form of Thula, a Maine Coon cat, who has been able to help her connect with the world outside herself. Thula also helps Iris with her painting.

    Getting a new four legged family member can be daunting. Here are the top 10 items for your new puppy that will make the transition as smooth as possible. A gorgeously comfortable bed for your pup to settle in on their first night. Unless you’re very naughty and – like me – sneak them into the bed against your husband’s pleas. This lovely bed from Joules is comfy and beautiful. A comfy crate to become their new lair isn’t a must, however, if you do intend to crate train them I’d recommend getting one sooner rather than later. Labradors and Lords have made some cosy crate covers…

  • Canine behavioural issues and what you can do

    Bronwyn Hall
    18 Nov 2014 | 11:14 am
    A not-so-fun fact is that the main reason for the euthanasia of dogs under the age of two is behavioural issues. This is a bleak statistic caused by the irresponsible breeding, training and treatment of dogs by humans. At best, dogs with behavioural issues can be rehabilitated. At worst doesn’t bare thinking about. Canine behavioural issues can range from inappropriate elimination to destruction and even aggression. With more and more dogs being rehomed from shelters, we – as responsible dog owners – can find ourselves dealing with issues that are not our fault but become our problem.

However, it may surprise you to find out what certain dogs were originally bred for… The Dachshund is one of the most popular breeds in the UK today. Short and long in stature, his inquisitive nature and alert personality tend to win over everyone he meets.

  • Eurasian Wigeons and American Wigeons: Contentious Cousins

    Lauren Shaffer
    7 Nov 2014 | 5:52 pm
    The Eurasian Wigeon which breeds in Iceland, Europe, and Asia, is a common visitor to America, and is a handsome bird with its rufous head and pinkish breast.  It shares some characteristics with its American cousin, the “Baldpate,” such as the cream-colored crown, white shoulder patch, and black at the back end. As stated in Audubon birds, The Eurasian Wigeon is usually found associating with flocks of its American counterpart. Like the American Wigeon, this species is unorthodox in its feeding habits: It spends much of its time grazing on land like a goose and also loiters…
  • Forster’s Tern

    Lauren Shaffer
    29 Oct 2014 | 7:00 pm
    The Forster’s Tern is a beauty, unique among the terns in winter with its black eye patch rather than a cap or crown. It’s also the only tern which lives almost entirely in North America. On a recent visit to Cape May, NJ, we came upon these beautiful birds vying for a spot on the railing of a dock. Forester’s Terns feed on fish, small crustaceans, frogs, and mollusks. They often hover before plunge-diving into the water after prey. In the East they prefer salt water marshes, and in the West they inhabit mainly fresh water marshes. Winter is spent along the coast south of…

    Lincoln’s sparrows are always a treat to see in fall migration in Pennsylvania.  Their finely streaked sides and breast, along with their buffy malar stripe and upper breast, an eye ring, and white throat and belly all combine to make for one handsome bird. s This fall I discovered some wonderful habitat for migrating sparrows and warblers.  At the bottom of a private lane of a neighbor, where field, prairie (shrubby grassland), and deep woods converge; dozens, if not hundreds of mostly sparrows are often found in the grasses, multiflora rose, and autumn olive.

    Lauren Shaffer
    8 Oct 2014 | 11:24 am
    All About Birds states: Whether poised at a river bend or cruising the coastline with slow, deep wingbeats, the Great Blue Heron is a majestic sight. This stately heron with its subtle blue-gray plumage often stands motionless as it scans for prey or wades belly deep with long, deliberate steps. They may move slowly, but Great Blue Herons can strike like lightning to grab a fish or snap up a gopher. In flight, look for this widespread heron’s tucked-in neck and long legs trailing out behind. Juvenile Great Blue Herons are medium-gray like the adult, but have two-toned bills and a streaked…
  • Great Egret, Bathing Beauty

    Lauren Shaffer
    29 Sep 2014 | 6:41 pm
    All birds bathe in order to maintain their plumage, but when a Great Egret takes a bath, it makes a big splash!  While kayaking this week at Montour Preserve, I noticed a Great Egret at the far end of the lake.  Keeping the sun behind me, I paddled up to a respectable distance from the bird and let the boat slowly drift towards the shore.  He deftly plucked one small fish after another from the shallows, and after downing at least 8 fish, he began to bathe. Down went his head and up went the waves of water! Vigorously he submerged himself and raised his wings till the water rolled off his…

    Believe it or not, not far ago, almost every single person could eat ecological, healthy food. But now (last 20 years) probably because we have an enormous amount of products available from different countries for different prices. Because of financial strength of larger companies, they have a practical monopoly on the market and they dictate what people will eat. Simple, if you don`t have enough money  for organic food, you will eat food, mostly lower quality produce in larger quantities. To make it clear, it`s the same in market of bee products.
