Get TV Monkeys Off Their Backs

Pet monkeys are not a good idea. That statement doesn’t appear to be rocket science. Yet, to some, the notion of having a pet monkey is appealing. And, perpetuating that appeal are monkey guest shots on TV sitcoms. I just viewed the most recent episode of Will & Grace, and Megan Mullally’s character, Karen Walker,…

Iguanas Falling from the Sky

People can deal with record low temperatures by putting on another layer of protection or not even venturing outdoors. Animals, however, have no choice in the matter. In Florida—in the water and on land—animals are paying a price. Iguanas are falling like coconuts from trees and appear to be frozen. The good news: Those that…

Saving Wildlife: We Can If We Try

People are smart. We can make a choice moving forward. Will we help wildlife, or will we help to speed the disappearance of many species from the planet? In India, these people banned together to save a baby elephant. In America, the President of the United States supports shooting elephants and will allow for legally…

Trump Sanctions Killing Endangered Elephants

Elephants are intelligent and emotional beings, and they are the prime shaper of any ecosystem they happen to live in. Humans are their only significant threat, and they are still being poached to death, particularly in Africa. Now, with President Trump’s personal support, the U.S. government will allow hunters to import trophies of elephants killed…

Reptile Awareness Day

Reptile Awareness Day was October 21, in case you missed it. Some reptiles make great pets, including Northern Blue-Tongue Skinks. This is our pet skink, Cosette. Other great beginner reptile choices include (but aren’t limited to) Bearded Dragon lizards, Leopard Geckoes and Corn Snakes. Indeed, reptile pets bring a bit of the natural world into…

In Charge of the Planet: World Veterinary Association

The World Veterinary Association (WVA) is unique. As President Dr. Rene Carlson explains, this organization supports wildlife, companion animals, and food animals, as well as illnesses than can be passed back and forth between people and animals. Carlson, a past president of the American Veterinary Medical Association, notes that the idea of “One Health” isn’t a…

Animal Advocate, Musician and Friend Skip Haynes Dies

Skip Haynes was known by some as on impassioned animal lover, a founder of Citizens for Los Angeles Wildlife (CLAW) – responsible for banning traps that snare or grip coyotes, bears, foxes and other animals in the city, deeming such traps inhumane in 2014. He sang about animals, and founded the only record label in the world creating…

Ridding Rabies, Taking Action

World Rabies Day was September 28. Over 60,000 people die of rabies and nearly half are children. Do consider experts suggest the human death toll is likely much higher as many deaths are not recorded, in rural China, India or Africa. This program will not only save human lives today and tomorrow (via education), but…
