To start the day …. “August 12 …. World Elephant Day”!!

BECAUSE WITHOUT ELEPHANTS, WHAT KIND OF WORLD THIS WOULD BE

August 12 is World Elephant Day and brings people together to help conserve and protect elephants from the numerous threats they face.

The World Elephant Day mission is to spread awareness, share knowledge, and provide solutions for better care and management of both captive and wild elephants.

Elephants are now going extinct at a rate of one every 14 minutes.
Without mercy humans are destroying the elephants faster and faster.
Unequivocally the world must end the ivory trade.

Poaching, human-elephant conflict, habitat loss, exploitation and abuse are all underpinned by social, political, economic and environmental realities in the countries where elephants reside – in captivity or in the wild.

Elep3

On August 12, 2012, the inaugural World Elephant Day was launched to bring attention to the urgent plight of Asian and African elephants. The elephant is loved, revered and respected by people and cultures around the world, yet we balance on the brink of seeing the last of this magnificent creature.

The escalation of poaching, habitat loss, human-elephant conflict and mistreatment in captivity are just some of the threats to both African and Asian elephants. Working towards better protection for wild elephants, improving enforcement policies to prevent the illegal poaching and trade of ivory, conserving elephant habitats, better treatment for captive elephants and, when appropriate, reintroducing captive elephants into natural, protected sanctuaries are the goals that numerous elephant conservation organizations are focusing on around the world.

World Elephant Day asks you to experience elephants in non-exploitive and sustainable environments where elephants can thrive under care and protection.

On World Elephant Day, August 12, express your concern, share your knowledge and support solutions for the better care of captive and wild elephants alike.

We admire elephants in part because they demonstrate what we consider the finest human traits: empathy, self-awareness, and social intelligence. But the way we treat them puts on display the very worst of human behavior.”

Graydon Carter, Editor of Vanity Fair

Elephants are simply one more natural resource that is being caught up in human greed on the one hand and human need on the other.  We somehow need people to become reacquainted with nature or they can have no clue as to the inter-relatedness of cause and effect.”

Dr. Stephen Blake, Max Planck Institute for Ornithology

I think it’s a little bit of both for photographer and the baby animals.

Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”’

Organ Donation Spot – So Very Touching

~~Published on May 27, 2015~~

The Human-Canine Bond

Dogs have long been considered “man’s best friend,” and they have certainly earned the title. The bond between humans and canines is unmistakable. Since the domestication of the dog, people have been drawn to them (and they to us). Dogs have helped us in so many ways and expect little in return. They have hunted with us, kept vermin and pests away, served the military and police, assisted the disabled, and faithfully remained our loyal companions.

MEET TURBOROO

My name is TurboRoo!

I was born without my front legs but, that has not stopped me one bit! I’m small but mighty and I am going to take on the world!!!!

I was only 4 weeks old when I was brought into The Downtown Veterinarian in Indianapolis, IN!

The breeder expressed concern because I was born without my two front legs. The breeder knew that I would need more one on one attention and decided to surrender me!
I have now been adopted by my previous foster parents! Soon I will be able to be fitted for a wheelchair that is suited just for my size and needs once I get to 6 months old! TurboRoo©

TurboRoo, The Chihuahua With No Front Legs, Can Walk Again Thanks To 3D Printing

Is there any cute animal 3D printing can’t save?

Just look at TurboRoo, a tiny Chihuahua born without front legs, who has been given a new “leash” on life thanks to a Makerbot and a 3D designer from 3dyn.

Mark Deadrick, president of 3dyn, saw TurboRoo’s call for wheels on the Internet and designed a small wheeled cart, estimating the size from online photos. He printed the model in bright orange, slapped on some Rollerblade wheels, and sent the cart to TurboRoo’s owner. Now the wee doggie is scooting along on a free, fully hackable set of super-legs.

Why is this cool?

Because, before 3D printing, TurboRoo’s owners would have had to build something out of ready-made pipes, cloth, and other materials at great cost. Now, however, the cart can be custom-fit to TR’s body, reprinted at will, and even modified by other designers. Best of all, they can make multiple carts for almost nothing and in almost no time.

Thoughts for today, #183 … “Opportunity For Kindness”!!


Wild

~~June 23, 2015~~ 

OPPORTUNITY FOR KINDNESS

“We need, in a special way, to work twice as hard to help people understand that the animals are fellow creatures, that we must protect them and love them as we love ourselves.”

~~César Chávez~~

BLine

“I wish people were more like animals.

Animals don’t try to change you or make you fit in.

They just enjoy the pleasure of your company.

Animals aren’t conditional about friendships.

Animals like you just the way you are.

They listen to your problems, they comfort you when you’re sad, and all they ask in return is a little kindness.”

~Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes: The Revenge of the Baby-Sat~

“BLUE SUEDE SHOES”

The blue-footed booby (Sula nebouxii) is a marine bird in the family Sulidae, which includes ten species of long-winged seabirds. Blue-footed boobies belong to the genus Sula, which comprises six species of boobies. It is easily recognizable by its distinctive bright blue feet, which is a sexually selected trait. Males display their feet in an elaborate mating ritual by lifting their feet up and down while strutting before the female. The female is slightly larger than the male and can measure up to 90 cm (36 in) long with a wingspan of up to 1.5 m (4.9 ft).

The natural breeding habitats of the blue-footed booby are the tropical and subtropical islands of the Pacific Ocean. It can be found from the Gulf of California down along the western coasts of Central and South America down to Peru. Approximately one half of all breeding pairs nest on the Galápagos Islands.

Its diet mainly consists of fish, which it obtains by diving and sometimes swimming underwater in search of its prey. While it sometimes hunts alone, the blue-footed booby mainly hunts in groups.
