In a sci-fi twist, Tasmanian tigers could actually be coming back from extinction

Over 80 years ago the Tasmanian Tiger became extinct. Now it seems like they have found a new cloning technique that may bring the animal back

Now here is something that you may not know: The closest living relative to the Tasmanian Tiger is the Asian Elephant!

Evolution

The extinction of the Tasmanian Tiger is one of the more shameful part of Australia/Tasmania’s History.

3D Scanning

Basically over the years, people have asked Museums to dissect the last remaining Tasmania Tiger that had a cub in it’s pouch, and the Museum have refused…That’s right the Tasmania Tiger is a marsupial…Instead of dissecting it, they have now found a way to 3D and scan image the Tiger instead!

The bully hits the elephants in the face…

I am SO angry today…I KNEW this was going to happen!

Screw Trump and screw anyone who supports this monster! Stop calling yourself animal lovers if you continue to support this “man”. We’re literally about to bring sub species of Rhino to extinction and he does this?!!! I am so angry right now! The bully hit the elephants right in the face…

Speak up for the voiceless!

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.

Please look at this website, it has so much information about animals that are under threat and can give you ideas on how to help.

 

World Rhino Day

There was no way that today of all days I was not going to write something about such an important topic!

World Rhino Day

World Rhino Day – Taronga Zoo Sydney

Rhino’s are probably one of the earths large animals that are being hunted into extinction.

World Rhino Day was first planned by World Wildlife Fund-South Africa in 2010.  Then, in 2011, Lisa Jane Campbell of Zimbabwe and Rhishja Larson joined forces to promote World Rhino Day 2011.

  • There are  all five species of rhino: black, white, greater one-horned rhinos, Javan and Sumatran.  All Rhinoceros are herbivores, meaning that they only consume plants, and lots of them.

 

  • The Black, Javan and Sumatran Rhinoceros species are listed as critically Endangered, meaning that they have a 50% change of extinction within 3 generations.

 

Save the Wildlife!

This is definitely a depressing topic but I feel like it’s one that needs to get out there because this is rapidly becoming a global problem (especially since this is being caused by a lot of Westerners).

Bodies of dozens of elephants found poisoned in Zimbabwe

The article was written and placed into the online articles at  The Guardian – Australia (it IS a global problem). So what I am also going to do is place the article into my Blog here. I did not write this article, this is not my material.

“No arrests made after rangers in Hwange national park discover carcasses of 26 elephants killed by cyanide poisoning

Rangers in Zimbabwe’s Hwange national park have discovered the carcasses of 26 elephants at two locations, dead of cyanide poisoning along with 14 other elephants which were found last week.

Patrolling rangers discovered the carcasses on Tuesday, according to the Bhejane Trust and the National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority. The Bhejane Trust undertakes joint animal monitoring and welfare work with the parks agency.

A parks spokeswoman, Caroline Washaya Moyo, said 14 tusks had been recovered from these elephants but the others had not been recovered. She said rangers had found 16 of the elephants in the Lupande area and 10 others in Chakabvi.

Washaya-Moyo said no arrests have been made and investigations were in progress. Rangers recovered 1kg (2.2lb) of cyanide and are increasing patrols in the park, she said. Cyanide is widely used in Zimbabwe’s mining industry and is easy to obtain.

“The poachers were probably disturbed by rangers on patrol, which is why some of the tusks were recovered. Cyanide poisoning is becoming a huge problem here and we are struggling to contain it,” said Trevor Lane, a founder of the Bhejane Trust and a leading wildlife conservationist.

Last week, the parks agency reported that 14 elephants had been poisoned by cyanide in three separate incidents. In 2013, as many as 300 elephants died in Hwange park after poachers laced salt pans with cyanide.

On Monday, the environment, water and climate minister, Oppah Muchinguri, blamed the increase in poaching on a US ban on hunting Zimbabwean elephants for sport.

“All this poaching is because of American policies. They are banning sport hunting. An elephant would cost $120,000 in sport hunting but a tourist pays only $10 to view the same elephant,” she said, adding that money from sport hunting was crucial in conservation efforts.”

Racing Extinction

I don’t know how many of you know about this or have already seen this, but I would have loved to have been there. I don’t think watching it on a computer screen is really doing it that much justice.

On the first of August 2015, New York and Racing Extinction put on a very impressive light show. On the side of the Empire State Building there was a huge light show. What was showing on the building were pictures of the animals that are considered endangered and are close to becoming extinct.

The filmmakers behind the project calls “Racing Extinction” say they hope it will draw attention and inspire a global conversation about the plight of endangered species. Their documentary is due to air on Discovery channel in December. The live video projection will be on display tomorrow from 9 p.m. till midnight.
