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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Wiley’s Whims!

Our magnificent Florida Panther Photo credit: Florida Panther page   According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a whim is: ” a capricious or eccentric and often sudden idea or turn of the mind.” Lately, it appears that Nick Wiley is having a turn of the mind, or rethinking many things, including, Panthers, Black Bears, to hunt or not to hunt […]

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 […]

Bison and Bears, the connection~

Wood Bison in Wood Buffalo National Park in Alberta, Canada Picture credit:  Laura Kaupas.   As you may have noticed, there has been a two month gap in postings here. The reason is that my heart has been broken over the imminent approval of Hunting our beautiful Florida Black Bear. The final, fateful decision is expected in […]

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 • […]

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 […]

No More!

Tilikum “performing” at Sea World Orlando Picture credit:  David R. Tribble   Today, I am both delighted and beyond proud, to be a part of a group of people, a Global Community that  took on the Giant Sea World, and according to our local news here this  morning, has likely brought the Giant to its […]

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!! […]

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 […]

A Typical Florida Solution

A Florida Feral Hog or Wild Pig Picture credit: US Fish and Wildlife   As you know we have only been here in Florida for about ten years. To say that coming here to live was Culture Shock,  is an understatement. There is simply no way to excuse, explain or define some of the behavior here. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ethics Be Dammed

The magnificent,  soon likely to be extinct, Florida Panther Picture credit: The Florida Panther page   Just now on our lunchtime news,   was a story about our Governor’s  supposed questionable connection to some of the very same  Companies that had recently been given permission to drill for oil by our DEP  in Collier County. They  said, that he owns a […]

Oorah!

Elephants At Zakouma National Park in SE Chad, the tragic sight of many Elephant deaths by poachers. Picture credit: C. Michael Hogan   Always there when we need them, our US Marines  from North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune,  are now using their talents to help stop the slaughter of elephants in Chad. This specialized team of US […]

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, […]
