World Wildlife Day

Today is a beautiful and sad day…

Beautiful because what animal isn’t beautiful? I just love talking about them…but sad because so many animals are under threat…

I am sure that most of you have probably heard of the latest news about the Sudan White Rhinos:

The World’s last male northern white Rhino is on death watch – Inside Africa – CNN

If you haven’t let me break it down, the last northern white rhino is dying. Now he is  pretty old for a Rhino. There are still two northern white female rhinos and this does not mean that Rhino’s are extinct altogether. It is sad though in this day and age we don’t have more of the resources to protect these animals. Well we do…Some people aka Government officials, don’t want to do it.

There are so many Myths and Legends when it comes to Rhinos and their horns, which are completely unfounded and are just not true. Rhinos horns are made out of the same stuff that our finger and toe nails are!

I also don’t know how many of you follow Big Cat Rescue...But they are a wonderful organisation and they usually only rescue Lions and Lionesses

(and a helluva lot better than BJWT…Do not support that wacko!)

One of their Kings…King Joseph also passed away today, but at least we can comfort in the fact that he was rescued and lived out a much better life, and did not die alone. Then the life he was living.
