A province-wide state of emergency is in place in Canada’s British Columbia since Friday, July 7, 2017, as widespread wildfires continue burning out of control across the province’s southern and central parts. Officials are describing the situation as unprecedented.

(86 per cent of the fires in America and Canada are criminal acts….)

Where have they come from? Scientists are baffled as MILLIONS of rare ‘sea pickles’ arrive on the US west coast

Posted in 2017, animals, food with tags , on June 23, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

sea_pickles

Pyrosomes are only a few millimetres long, but tend to gather in huge colonies.

Speaking to The Guardian, Olivia Blondheim, a student at the University of Oregon, said: ‘Right now we are scrambling to learn as much as possible while we have the opportunity.

‘If we continue to see this many, what impact will it have on the ecosystems here, and what economic impact on the fisheries?

‘There are so many unknowns at this point, it really is a remarkable bloom.’

Pyrosomes usually live in the upper layers of the open ocean in warm seas, although some are found a bit deeper.

The cylindrical-shape colonies are made up of thousands of individuals, known as zooids.

Boycott Bali: Gentle dogs (and other animals) are being beaten, butchered — and fed to tourists. 1.2 million Australians go Each Year…..

Posted in 2017, animals with tags , , , , , , on June 20, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

sad-dogs

It was meant to be a family holiday in Bali for one of our investigators. But  what he found not far from the busy tourist strips of this ‘island paradise’ is the stuff of nightmares.

Every day, gentle dogs — some of them pets — are being strangled, bludgeoned, shot and poisoned for meat. And as our investigation has confirmed, some tourists are being tricked into eating them.

Last night on national television we released the shattering results of one of our most disturbing investigations yet. The suffering of Bali’s dogs shows just how broken our relationship with animals can become when we allow ourselves to see living beings as nothing more than ‘food’.

Local groups in Bali have been working for years to rescue dogs from this trade but every time they speak out, they risk being shut down. This is why the voice and efforts of Animals Australia and our supporters is desperately needed to protect dogs in Bali.

1.2 million Australians visit Bali every year. With tourism driving Bali’s economy, we’re in a powerful position to help animals in desperate need. Animals like these — dumped into bamboo crates without food or water. Dogs may languish like this for days while they wait for ‘their night’ to be beaten and butchered.

Not surprisingly our investigator found that it is not only dogs suffering in Bali. Other animals are also in dire need especially those who have been raised for ‘food’, or endure miserable lives ‘entertaining’ tourists.

This situation is dire, but not unwinnable, with your support.

As you read this, Animals Australia’s Veterinary Director is in Bali conducting the sensitive government and stakeholder negotiations necessary to bring about change. Important relationships are being built and agreements reached that the dog meat trade is breaching current laws. We’re also working to get local animal protection laws enforced to protect all animals from extreme cruelty. To support these efforts we need to show the Governor of Bali that caring people the world over want him to use his power to help animals.

This is where you come in. Please join us to call on Governor Pastika to take urgent action for animals.

It’s clear to us that the locals who eat dog meat have no idea of the scale of suffering involved. And that’s not surprising. We know all too well in our own country that what happens to ‘food’ animals behind closed doors is shocking to most.

This is why public exposure is so important. If we can inspire urgent change in Bali and help more people to recognise ‘food’ animals as the gentle, curious, unique individuals that they are — then we can create a wave of compassion that will ultimately help all animals.

Yes, we humans still have far to go, when a blissful island paradise for you and I can be masking such hidden horrors for animals. But I have seen time and time again that compassion is a transformative and powerful force. Working together we can convince the Bali government to transform this beautiful island into a haven for all who reside there and a blissful place for all who visit.

Every action you take in support of our work takes us ever closer to that kinder world. I am so very grateful to you.

For the animals,

Lyn Lyn

Investigations Director

Please take urgent action now to help these dogs.

Father’s Day story : How Wallace the lion broke all the laws of the jungle to raise his son alone after Mummy passed away

Posted in 2017, animals with tags , , , , , on June 17, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

DSC_7536.jpg

Khari the lion was taken under the wing of his father, Wallace, after his mother Rachel died just before Christmas 

Male lions are usually not exactly hands-on dads. They leave all the hard work to the womenfolk: both childcare and hunting. 

That said, they do actually stick around, which is more than can be said for most male cats, who clear off once the mating is over.

Cubs are born blind and unable to walk for the first few weeks. 

And while lionesses are the main teachers, allowing growing cubs to pounce and chase their tails in preparation for real life, lion dads will also allow their offspring to jump on them and stalk them.

However, they tend to have a much shorter fuse than the mums — often swatting mischievous youngsters away with their giant paws, or snarling at them when their patience wears thin.

Watch Explorers Track Struggling Polar Bears Across Russian Arctic

Posted in 2017, animals with tags , , , , on June 14, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

Polar_bear.jpg

The Russian biologists were already on their third round of vodka shots over a dinner of canned reindeer meat, buckwheat, and pickles when a neighbor ran in and shouted, “bear!”

 

Old Soviet forks clattered against plates as the group of scientists all stood at the same time and rushed out of the tiny kitchen in the Sea View, a grandly named hotel in the almost completely abandoned town of Amderma on the shore of the Kara Sea. “The polar bear is by the school!” the young woman yelled again, as the men got dressed in a chaotic jumble of boots, gloves, coats, and hats.

 

Sergey Naidenko and Yevgeny Ivanov ran into their room and grabbed a lightweight German gas rifle. Yevgeny tucked a number of tranquilizer darts into his down jacket—then everyone ran out into the gloom of a spring evening in the Russian Arctic.

 

Outside, Sergey grabbed the darts from Yevgeny, jumped on a snowmobile behind a local Nenets hunter with a rifle slung over his shoulder, and went tearing off across the hardened snow in the direction the bear had run. The rest of the group navigated down to the frozen seashore through deep snow hiding mountains of rusted junk left by the Soviet Union’s second largest Arctic air base.
