The Promise~

Circus Elephants Picture credit: Wikipedia Public Domain   This morning on our News was an ugly twist to a story that had not been expected.

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.

Cocoa Says NO!

The Pier at Cocoa Beach Picture credit:  Mike Russell   On our local news this morning,  came a most unexpected joy.

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!

Saving Sharks~

A Nurse Shark Picture credit: Joseph Thomas   With every story written, I read your words, I feel your pain, it is my pain as well. Like me, you suffer through every terrible bit of news about who and what is being done daily, to  innocent animals all over the world, and as one of […]

Crime Pays!

A  Nurse Shark in  Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary Picture credit:  NOAA  Dr. Mathew Gilligan   Sometimes the bad guys do get caught, but really,  what good does it do?

Injustice In Japan

Right now, I […]

Carte Blanche

A Right Whale mother and Calf   With this most recent  seal of approval, the US Navy is now  free to deafen, maim and murder sea life in both the Atlantic and the Pacific.

Perception~
