Help us stop this madness

NO MORE ORPHANS IN FLORIDA~   This will be short and ugly/ bitter. Today many, many times, they have been blasting all over our local news about the impending, not their words, Black Bear Hunt again in the Fall. Numbers  were given, with absolutely no evidence to support how these numbers were arrived at however, 4350 Black Bears […]

Forever Gone!

Picture credit : Grey 2 K   For the past two days and for as long as we have lived here in Central Florida, the News has continually covered the various groups opposing the Racing of Greyhounds. The pictures on our News yesterday and again this morning, were/are pathetic and tragic. Dogs were/are shown being forced […]

It Is Over!

A beautiful Black Bear Cub. Will we ever see another one? Picture credit: Unknown   Score Scott and Company ONE, Florida Black Bears  Zero! I had to compose myself before writing this, it took some time. Yesterday in Tallahassee, Judge Reynolds, who I am reasonably sure was appointed by Scott, said that the FWCC had every right and indeed, every responsibility to order […]

Night Lights~

The night lights of the Empire State Building in New York City, the stunning ones are linked below! Picture credit: GK 12   When I saw this yesterday, it literally took my breath away and I knew that I would be sharing it with all of you as soon as we got home this morning~ Yes, […]

Patron of the Oceans

Lewis Pugh with Archbishop Desmond Tutu,  September 15, 2010 Picture credit: Publicist   On AMHQ this morning Sam Champion interviewed a true Hero, one who is not just another wildlife activist. He talked to Lewis Pugh, the renown swimmer, author, activist, public speaker, and former marine lawyer, from Plymouth, England, who has put his infamous speedos into water that […]

Gone is Forever

A Green Sea Turtle Hatchling Photo credit: Manuel Heinrich Emha   As someone who has in the past,  been  fond of deep-fried shrimp, as of today, it is off of my menu, forever! I try very hard to be a vegetarian, but alas, shrimp was a guilty weakness, but now, no more. In my mail this morning was […]

Double Entendre or Controlled Florida Bear Hunting

And coming soon to Florida! Picture credit: William A. Troyer – US Fish and Wildlife Service   In the little publicized, poorly defined FFWS meeting in Jacksonville yesterday, not much was really accomplished or confirmed about the plan to renew Black Bear hunting in this state. We still do not really know exactly how, when, where or what is going […]

Ishi, et al.

Our baby Ishi, so far, the only child of our sweet Harriet   Not wishing to put you all to sleep or bore you yesterday with a excruciatingly long post, I decided to split it in half, this then, is part two. All the news today is not  bad, some of it is actually wonderful. […]

We Are Their Only Hope

          Brown Pelican, Black Bear cub and Rhinos   It has been entirely too long since I have been able to share any news about wildlife with all of you, so today’s posting will address several issues, I apologize and hope that you have a big pot of coffee nearby~ To begin this morning,  and it […]

Hacked and Back!

Breanna and me at Flagler Beach.   Yes, I have been away. But the reason was entirely out of my hands. Dealing since October with biopsies, surgeries and weekly trips to Gainesville for melanomas was a piece of cake compared to the past five weeks. This time it is all mental stress. If you are here, it is […]

Deadly Silence

Hide baby, you’re safe, for now! Picture credit: MWanner   Try to picture this scene. You are strolling along a path in the lovely, tranquil Ocala Forest of Central Florida, walking with your wife/husband and children, when suddenly without warning, you are shot, perhaps killed. There had not been a sound. So, how did this tragedy happen […]

269: Please, Remember This Number

An innocent  Baby Calf Picture credit: Wikipedia   Many years ago when my daughter was quite young, we happened to be at a place where an ugly truth was just feet away from where we spent the night. It was in a tiny town in North Central California and what happened there that night changed […]

We Are All One America

Staff of President Clinton’s One America Initiative, the Initiative on Race Picture credit: Public Domain   Watching the returns for Florida last night was a mixed blessing. Most importantly to us, Amendment One passed with 75% of the voters in this state approving it. And thankfully, the elections are over and the dirty nasty commercials […]

Please Say Yes to Amendment One

The Everglades, an exquisite Florida Natural Area Photo credit: sfwmd.gov   On Election Day next Tuesday here in Florida,  although not everyone will be on board, or be all that terribly concerned, a very critical Amendment is on the Ballot and it is not about who will be our next Governor. It is about protecting the most perfect, precious commodities […]

Gone!

Why is this man smiling? Picture credit: William A. Troyer – US Fish and Wildlife Service I apologize for this brutal picture, but it explains my rage.   Yes, sorry, two in one morning, both of them  were in my email and neither could be ignored. This story is about a subject that pains me deeply […]

You’re On Your Own!

The Tiger Shark is a regular visitor to Florida Beaches. Picture credit: Albert Kok   This story has been on our local news for several days and it has Floridians divided,  once again. I truly did not want to write about this, but the story will not go away. Those who fish of course, are completely opposed […]

Animal Independence Day

Only death awaits him. Bull fighting still today remains popular in many parts of the world. Picture credit: Wikipedia   Today is Independence Day in America. It is a day which gives us all a sense of pride in how much we have achieved since we became an Independent Nation. Over the past few hundred years we […]

Cantankerous Cranes~

These were taken across the street from our house on April 30, when there were still TWO chicks. Today there is only one chick remaining. Picture credit: Walkingfox   A story in my email this morning reflects an ongoing situation that makes those of us who love the Sandhill Cranes  more than just a little edgy. For the […]

Dolphin Defense

A Dolphin group in Xcaret, Mexico Picture credit:  Truncatus   Today is feel good Sunday, so in Honor of this day of positive  thinking, here is a  feel good story. Do you need or want,  yet another reason to fight for and defend wild animals? Is it just me, or do Dolphins always look happy and like they […]

It’s A Baby Shower

         A small example, (not actual) of the many kinds of animals that this Wildlife Hospital rehabilitates every year. An owl, a hatchling turtle, a fawn and a gopher tortoise – (Our resident tortoise Harriet) Picture credits: Baby turtle – Manuel Heinrich   OK,  who doesn’t love a baby shower? But for this one,  you can leave […]
