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. […]

Will Steverson Stay Or Go?

Silver Springs, Nature’s Underwater Fairyland Picture credit: Florida State Memory Archives   The controversial, Scott nominated, head of the Florida DEP, Jon Steverson, is like a “bird on a wire” at the moment. He has previously failed to be confirmed for this appointment by the Governor and if he is rejected, or fails to be confirmed […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Changing Alaska

Denali, the Great One! Picture credit: Nic McPhee from Morris, MN, USA   President Obama will be in Alaska today for an Arctic Global Climate Summit. He is the first US President to visit the Arctic while still in office. His primary objective is likely to shore up support for climate change programs. But another more […]

Paynes Prairies’ Pain~

The Paynes Prairie Ecopassage Picture credit: Ebyabe   This week was our trip up to Gainesville for my latest Skin cancer check up. It was, as always, a great journey as it goes through the most beautiful part of Central Florida. My check up went well, no more new melanomas, only two minor things and I was sent off until end of November. […]

Never Forget Cecil!

Cecil the lion at Hwange National Park in 2010. Picture credit: Joe Sutherland/Wikipedia   Yesterday the Dental office of Walter Palmer, the killer of Cecil the African Lion, re-opened. The staff  announced that they are now open and serving their patients and that the Dr. is not on the premises. Not only is Palmer a murderer, he is a coward. But, what […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Holding on~

                A Miami Blue Butterfly                                                        A Schaus Swallowtail Butterfly Photo credit: FWC/M.Wisnieski                                        Photo credit: FWS   At first glance this morning, the first story below, gave rise to a tiny hope for two critically endangered, if not already extinct Florida Butterflies, but alas, upon reading it, the two that I had been […]

Global Tentacles

Giraffe Cave Art at the NamibRand Nature Reserve Picture credit: Namibnat   At first glance this morning, this news appeared to be a positive move, made by someone who had their heart and their power, in the right place, and was a cause for tremendous joy. But then after reading further and seeking secondary and other stories […]

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 […]

No, No, No!

A magnificent Florida Black Bear   Update: The FFWS Meeting will be tomorrow at 8:30 AM at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Jacksonville, 225 East Coastline Drive on the Third floor. Phone number is 904 588-1234 Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission • Farris Bryant Building 620 S. Meridian St. • Tallahassee, FL  32399-1600 • […]

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 […]
