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 […]

So Long Sonar!

This awesome picture of a Pacific Blue whale is courtesy of NOAA fisheries!   The United States Navy has made me a fan once again, with this latest move to save the lives of so many of our threatened and endangered Ocean wildlife. Over the past few years in this very Blog, I have written ad nauseam about […]

Trust No One~

A magnificent Florida Panther Picture credit: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers   On our news this morning was a completely unexpected revelation. It came, they said, from the Executive Director of the FWC although, they did not mention Nick Wiley by name. Was this an accident, or requested? It seems that Nick Wiley may or may not have […]

A Horror of a Human

Cecil the beloved Lion in Africa Picture credit: Unknown   What can be going on in the deranged, twisted mind of this absolute monster? This gutless Dentist, Walter Palmer, from Minnesota not only finds pleasure in killing, but is also a repeat offender. His latest victim, that he reportedly paid $55,000 to hunt, was a much beloved Lion and […]

Bison and Bears, the connection~

Wood Bison in Wood Buffalo National Park in Alberta, Canada Picture credit:  Laura Kaupas.   As you may have noticed, there has been a two month gap in postings here. The reason is that my heart has been broken over the imminent approval of Hunting our beautiful Florida Black Bear. The final, fateful decision is expected in […]

No More!

Tilikum “performing” at Sea World Orlando Picture credit:  David R. Tribble   Today, I am both delighted and beyond proud, to be a part of a group of people, a Global Community that  took on the Giant Sea World, and according to our local news here this  morning, has likely brought the Giant to its […]

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 […]

A Typical Florida Solution

A Florida Feral Hog or Wild Pig Picture credit: US Fish and Wildlife   As you know we have only been here in Florida for about ten years. To say that coming here to live was Culture Shock,  is an understatement. There is simply no way to excuse, explain or define some of the behavior here. […]

Killer Whales or Orcas Picture credit: Robert Pittman NOAA   This story is for Adam,  whose heart is as big as the Ocean, the Orcas and all the sea creatures that he loves so much. Killer Whales or Orcas are the largest Dolphins. This beautiful mammal is an intelligent, fun-loving, playful, family oriented and devoted […]

This specialized team of US […]

Branson’s Bunch~

Sir Richard Branson at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development June,  2012 Picture credit:  UNclimatechange   When going through my mail this morning,  a surprising story presented itself. The unexpected subject of this great news, is not one who normally comes to mind when thinking of Endangered Wildlife, but there he was,  right there in my mailbox, […]

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 […]

Panthers One, Drilling Zero!

Our beloved  Florida Panther Picture credit: John White   What day is it? It is once again finally,  feel good Sunday. Thank God! In a recent vote that looked sure to go the other way, Exploratory Gas drilling was rejected by the  Big Cypress Swamp Advisory Committee. It is still unfathomable to me,  that the recommendation for this disastrous idea came […]

Animal Awareness Alert~

       A Florida Black Bear in the Ocala Forest and a Florida Manatee mother and baby Black Bear picture credit:  FFWCC,  Manatee picture credit: http://www.sfwmd.gov The Black Bear pictured here was taken in an area quite near our house and according to Wikipedia: “which supports the highest density population of black bears in North America.”   […]

Cocoa Says NO!

The Pier at Cocoa Beach Picture credit:  Mike Russell   On our local news this morning,  came a most unexpected joy. It was announced today,  that the City of Cocoa Beach had rejected offshore Seismic Testing. Those in this Committee actually said that they don’t want it, because it has been said to harm Whales and Dolphins. Did I hear right? […]

Whales Win!

Traditional Whaling in Taiji Picture credit: Public Domain   If you have had your absolute fill of  depressing news about our wonderful world of animals, you can smile today! Japan has argued for years,  that they have the absolute right to kill 1,000 Whales a year in the Antarctic,  for ” scientific purposes, ”  but the United Nations […]

God Hears~

Picture credit and kindly lent by:   Deby Dixon photography   Just when it seemed that nothing could stop the endless Global human brutality against animals, a tiny miracle has just happened. The slaughter of Yellowstone Bison has been stopped, for now. Are you listening God, you surely must be? […]

Masticating Mollusks~

Oyster Sloop, Cos Cob Painting credit: Frederick Childe Hassam   The sun is out here in our part of the  Sunshine State  for the first time this week, the rain has finally stopped, although we desperately needed it, but nearly a week of not seeing sunlight, got to be a bit overwhelming. And with this bright […]

Their World, Their Future~

ARKive – Images of Life on Earth Picture credit: Animal World   As  the world celebrates a New Year, my thoughts are as usual,  focused on animals. Recently there has been a lot of reflection and or controversy about the ESA, the Endangered Species Act turning 40 and whether or  not it is, gasp, still necessary. Merely writing these […]

You Care About Us~

Noah’s Ark Animals Picture credit: WiNG   What day is it? It is  ” feel good ”  or  “ good news ”  Sunday of course. My final posting for this year is about a place that I have loved for more than 25 years, it is  the Everglades. If you have never been there and […]
