A River Otter Rescue

River otters,  (not the ones in the story):  Lontra Canadensis Picture credit: Dmitry Azovtsev   This morning there was a sweet story on our local TV news about three tiny river otter babies who were rescued recently and right now are fighting for their lives. It was disappointing that after spending  most of the day calling […]

Can We Trust You?

Forest elephants (Loxodonta cyclotis) in the Mbeli River, Nouabalé-Ndoki National Park, Congo. Picture credit: Thomas Breuer   If you have been here long, you know that over the past 3 years on WP, I have been bitterly disappointed, frequently deceived and flat-out lied to, by those who are in place to protect Global Wildlife. So, on Friday when […]

This King has left the building!

A juvenile King Cobra Picture credit:  Biomedicinal   After living in so many places before coming to Florida in 2004, it was only a matter a time before this would happen. And it did. Within a few months of moving here, there it was one day, curled up on the black mat at our back door, waiting for […]

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 […]

Puget Pride

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 […]

Naughty Nudists

Royal Terns on Passage Key Wildlife Refuge in Florida Picture credit: USFWS   When this came on our Noon News yesterday, at first I thought that it must be a joke, but as it turned out, it was quite the opposite. A Florida Wildlife Refuge on the Gulf Coast near Tampa, called Passage Key, with a resident population of rare Native birds […]

Guilty!

Beautiful, Bashful, Black Bear Cubs~ Picture credit:  FWC   I am sure that you all remember the horrific stories written  here about the Seven Black Bears,  that were killed in the Orlando area recently. It was a sad, sad, sickening thing to have to write about and watch unfold. Many hearts were broken,  as this story was on 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 […]

Numbers!

A Florida Black Bear Cub Picture credit:  FWC **An update 4/17/2014  5 AM** FWC  just announced that there will be fines and possible jail time for anyone caught feeding Bears. This comes too late for SEVEN Black Bears!   Today with heavy and trouble heart,  I am imploring you to do something for an animal that […]

We Must Speak Even Louder

Wild Orcas as they were meant to be,  free and hunting in the Norwegian Sea. Picture credit: Wolfgang Hägele   Yesterday in California,  more than a million voices, via their signatures on a petition, were  raised up against the continuing captivity of  Orcas at Sea World San Diego, but they simply could not compete with those of […]

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? […]

Evan’s Endeavor~

Evan’s proposed Merit Badge for the BSA to protect Endangered Animals Picture credit: Evan Nelsen   In my mail this morning came a delightful surprise, a petition created by a very young man with a passion for animals. He is Evan Nelsen from Minnesota and he is petitioning the  Boy Scouts of America,  to create a new Merit […]

Rhino Rage

A soon to become extinct and most rare,  Black Rhino mother and baby. Picture credit:  Yathin S Krishnappa **I am completely guilty of being too angry and too quick to write, after re-reading this story, it was learned that they are having an auction for this disgusting murder, BUT it will be carried out in Africa, […]

Growing Pains

Picture credit:  U.S. Department of Energy Genome Programs   Being basically claustrophobic,  this story quickly caught my eye. This problem may only be in Florida for right now, but trust me,  it will be coming to a state near you,  eventually. Our fragile Wildlife is being shoved, pushed and run out of town by a burgeoning population explosion here and our […]

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 […]

Zirafa

Willow, a one day old baby Giraffe with its mother. Picture credit: Ralph Daily   I had no intention of writing today, but coming upon this story and the petition that accompanied it, changed that in a heartbeat. For as long as I can remember, the Giraffe has been the object of my affection and […]

Dear Deer!

A White Tailed Deer Picture credit: Clay Heaton   As a dedicated animal protector  and especially a Deer lover, you had to know that this story would be here! The only thing that I find more despicable than those who harm animals,  are those who hunt them with bows and most especially with cross bows,  as our new neighbors across the […]

Safe Sanctuary

Majestic African Elephants   Thankfully, today is  “Good News Sunday”  and this story,   is one that should bring great pride and pleasure to all Floridians who love animals. One of the most majestic, emotion evoking animals to ever inhabit this Earth, has had to do its best to survive,  in spite of the onslaught of evil directed […]
