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 […]

Not Extinct~

              A Galapagos Tortoise  Picture credit: Matthew Field        A Sierra Nevada Red Fox  Picture credit: NPS   Extinction is a dirty, ugly word and usually we, the two-leggeds are to blame, but this week is a time to celebrate, for two rare and exciting sightings have caused great joy around the Globe. This post is about two extremely rare and endangered creatures […]

269: Please, Remember This Number

An innocent  Baby Calf Picture credit: Wikipedia   Many years ago when my daughter was quite young, we happened to be at a place where an ugly truth was just feet away from where we spent the night. It was in a tiny town in North Central California and what happened there that night changed […]

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 […]

Water

A drop  of Water Picture credit: José Manuel Suarez   The absence from this obviously addictive pleasure, has left me with a great deal of time to ponder what the subject of the first posting here would be, after being cleared by my Doctor to resume a somewhat normal life. Before beginning,  I must take the time to say, […]

I am an ALLY, are you?

I AM AN ALLY Picture credit:  I AM AN ALLY FACEBOOK PAGE   I was just about to write about two Endangered Birds this morning,  when this came in my email. The Birds can wait until tomorrow,  this is much more important to me and millions of others around the world. First let me say, that I […]

Earth Day Memories, then and now~

Stuntman Dar  Robinson and Actor/Environmentalist Iron Eyes Cody, two kind and gentle men.   Many years ago in California, I had the privilege of meeting a person who was often shown in commercials to tug at the heart-strings of us all,  to treat our Planet or Mother Earth better. This man and I were introduced one night at the Artists […]

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 […]

There, but for the Grace of God?

Daniel Andreas San Diego Picture credit: Unknown   On our news this morning was the story of a very dangerous suspect, being sought by the FBI in Hawaii, for some bombings in California. Well, you know that they had my undivided attention, as soon as I heard the words animal activists and bombings used in the […]

Powerless Panther

The beautiful Florida Panther Picture credit: SFWMD   A California water Company was just given permission by the St. John’s Water board to double their daily take of our water this week, even though we are in the third year, of a four-year drought, here in Lake County and Central Florida. In the three recent drought  years,  our […]

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 […]

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 […]

Going Green

                                                   A Florida Snail Kite and Wood Stork                                                                       Picture Credits: FFWS & Steve Hillebrand FWS   May we all share a prayer on this  ” World Aids Day.”   Although this is meant to be a  “Good News”  Sunday story, it comes with an  itsy, bitsy,  but…… It was just announced that a long time, […]

Take Two

                       A Loggerhead Sea Turtle  Credit: NOAA                                            Silver Springs Florida in 1886     Thank God it is ” Good News”  Sunday. What a ghastly, awful week of news this has been for animals. But, there have also been two good happenings  in our local animal news, so, with that bright thought in […]

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 […]

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? Is fining them really going to stop their illicit behavior or shut them down? This man in California has been dealing with Floridians, to sell poached […]

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. They have been given Carte Blanche. The might of our Military will now be allowed to forge ahead full steam,  knowing well the consequences […]

A Fed Bear Is A Dead Bear

A young Black Bear Picture credit: hans-stieglitz   Once again this morning, I had not intended to write, but once again it was not to be. This state has a pretty poor record, in my eyes, when it comes to “nuisance,  (their word not mine)  anything.” Nearly every day in our local news, there is another […]

Plastic, You’re Outta Here!

Plastic trash on the Beach in Hawaii Picture credit: NOAA   I have been wanting to address this Issue for months and with this announcement today,  it is now time. The city of Los Angeles, my home for over 30 years, who is continually at the forefront and  frequently a leader in cutting edge everything,  has just […]
