Hiding the Hunters

A beautiful 300 pound Florida Black Bear hit and killed near our home here in the Ocala Forest. Picture credit: USFS Carrie Sekerak   So much for transparency from the King of backroom deals and hidden agendas, or the Governor of what is now known as the sad state of Florida for all wild animals. […]

Packing Up the Pachyderms~

A Circus elephant in 1930, a life spent in silent suffering and servitude!   It has been painful not being here, but the reasons were clearly out of my control. 2014 was a difficult year for me, but my issues were nothing compared to Breanna’s. As of right this moment, we are both mended and well. […]

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, […]

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. […]

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 […]

Power, Panthers, People: Who Will Win?

The magnificent Florida Panther Photo credit: sfwmd.gov **Thought about this in my sleep last night and wanted to add it.** The  “sunshine state” should never build another fossil fuel power plant, everything from this point on should be green energy, as in solar and wind. Florida has an abundance of both and should be using them NOW!! […]

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 […]

Doing It Right

Breanna and I have a meet and greet with a friendly staff member at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.             All pictures were taken at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium last October, 2013 by Walkingfox.     If you have been here for a bit, you may remember the story about  Winter, the rescued Dolphin  whose tail was severely damaged and was […]

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 […]

Two Updates, One Despicable Item!

Comfrey Jacobs,  animal rights activist and humanitarian, extraordinaire~ Picture credit and kindly lent by:   Deby Dixon photography   I am quite sure that you all remember this brave young man putting himself on the line at Yellowstone Park a few months ago,  trying to stop the slaughter of Bison/Buffalo. The posting about him was:   God Hears. What you need […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

World Wildlife Day

Picture credit: CITES Secretariat   ” On 20 December 2013, at its 68th session, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) decided to proclaim March 3, the day of the adoption of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), as World Wildlife Day, to celebrate and raise awareness of the […]

No Ducks, thank you~

A Rubber Duck Picture credit:  Alexander Klink   With this posting today, I may lose some of you,   c’est la vie. I just got a new Petition in my email and felt compelled to pass it along. Here is the Petition:   Remove violence promoting products in your store It is addressed to Petco, a store where I […]

Despicable Deeds

Image: Public Domain   As an impressive list of Global Heads of State assemble in  London to discuss the horror inflicted on wildlife worldwide, our own country has just announced its own set of new rules to play by in dealing with this, or our National Strategy for Combating Wildlife Trafficking. What is remarkable is that it is being […]

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 […]
