Seal on the beach: save, do no harm!

November 10, 2017 [email protected] 0

End of February – beginning of March – the time of the birth of Baltic seals. And the time of constant meetings of people with these animals on the coast of the Baltic Sea. As a rule, having seen the seal, concerned vacationers call the zoo or try to “save” the animal. This situation is repeated from year to year. We collected the most frequently asked questions about the Baltic seals and tried to give answers to them so that those who met this animal knew how to act properly in such a situation, and above all, not to harm themselves or the animal. Why do seals come ashore? Cubs of Baltic seals appear on the ice deep in the sea or on deserted beaches. Due to the general warming of the climate by the end of February, ice in the Baltic, as a rule, is no longer there. Therefore, future mothers increasingly come ashore in search of solitude. But a densely built-up coast and numerous holidaymakers, happy because of pokies download, penetrate the most secluded corners of the coastal strip, and often violate this solitude and are met at the water’s edge or in the stones of new-born seals.

Everything counts  Hurricane Harvey was a very destructive Atlantic hurricane which hit the United States in August. It has officially affected many people, animals, and caused more than 70 billion dollars’ worth of damage. Thankfully, a lot of organizations and businesses have come together to help and fix the situation.  Panda Express donated 500,000 dollars which were split between The Tzu-Chi Foundation and the American Red Cross. It has also created in-store donation boxes where their customers can donate as much as they want and help with the cause. Various Panda Express locations were providing food to American Red Cross, doctors and families in hospitals in Texas. Their donation was a great example to other restaurants. Many other organizations which specify in food or drinks industry have also helped.

The imperfect adaptations of marine mammals 

September 26, 2017 [email protected] 0

The passage from water to lands emerged is a chapter that never fails in stories about the history of life on Earth, having been a fundamental step for the subsequent evolutionary radiation of many animal and plant species. But even more interesting, from an evolutionary point of view, is to rethink the history of those vertebrate descendants of progenitors who, after adapting to the earthly life, have, so to speak, started to go back from mainland to water. Some, like turtles, even seem to have embarked on this trip several times in both directions, from land to water and back to earth. Some mammals, such as whales and dolphins, have come to the end of this path in the opposite direction (in the sense that it is highly unlikely that their descendants will return to colonize the emerged lands), returning to a completely aquatic life like theirs ancient progenitors. Others stopped a bit earlier along this path, such as seals that, despite having developed anatomy suitable for swimming and diving, still spend a good deal of time on the earth, especially to lighten and nurture the little ones. The return to the aquatic life of these mammals has been made […]

Animal Cruelty

The Real Truth about Animal Cruelty

September 18, 2017 [email protected] 0

Disclaimer: I fully understand that this is a controversial topic. But I feel like both sides are blind with hate and middle men are necessary to bring sanity to the discussion. Animal cruelty is a loaded term that has a lot of misconceptions. Even trophy hunting in places like Africa is misunderstood. I do not agree with it, that’s for sure. But these places have their own rules, own set of problems. Sometimes the $40,000 that a foreigner pays for the hunt can actually help protect the animal rights in those countries. Despite the fact that I disagree with trophy hunting, each case should be looked at individually. Here is what you actually need to know about animal cruelty. How to make everyone hate you Eating meat is not necessarily animal cruelty. To feed our ever-growing population the animals are not treated well and I hope this can be changed soon. However, claiming that only non-meat eaters are animal-loving people is just wrong. Meat is important in a diet of a modern person and that’s the truth. Some animals must be killed Yes, I said it. I do expect to see outrage over this, but again, this is the truth. […]

Air pollution is brought on by city traffic, coal burning power plants and assorted chemical industries. Deforestation also disturbs the delicate performance of the organic ecosystem. This biodiversity comprises a high proportion of endemic plants and animals. The ecosystem depends upon every living creature however unimportant it might seem to be. Species become endangered daily and thus far, it hasn’t affected humans. Threatened species are those which will probably become Endangered in the near future. Other species are extremely rare. Endangered species are guarded on international levels too. They usually have a small or declining population size or a very limited range, meaning factors such as habitat loss, hunting, disease or climate change could cause them to disappear completely within our lifetimes. There are a number of explanations for why these mammals ought to be saved. Animals and plants need one another to survive. Endangered animals are the ones that are beneath a significant threat of extinction. The tips mentioned previously can be used for saving the endangered animals. A number of these terrific animals have gotten extinct while others are in excellent danger of becoming extinct. Finally, many animals offer knowledge that assist with science and biological sciences. Finally, […]

You may adopt a rabbit, but you maynot kill it or treat it like an inferior being. As a consequence, more times than not, the rabbits are completely conscious of what is happening and go through the complete effect of terror and pain. Over the years, they have been reared and killed for the purpose of consumption. They have been killed for so long due to the increased demand for their meat and fur. The rabbits reside in unsanitary cages and therefore, are prone to many sorts of diseases. They are denied their natural mating process and are forced to procreate artificially.

How do seals survive in wild nature

How do seals survive in wild nature?

July 10, 2017 [email protected] 0

You have probably seen seals in a zoo or on a nature documentary. They are fascinating animals with a real instinct for survival. Which habitats suit seals? Seals are found in many different climates and habitats, from the icy Antarctic to sunny and tropical regions. Most are found in the Antarctic. They survive in the colder climates thanks to layers of blubber on their bodies which help hold the heat in. Those seals found in the Antarctic will generally have a lot more blubber than those which live in warmer places, due to it being unnecessary in hot climates. This means that the seals in older places need to eat a lot more in order to survive. They prefer an area with an abundance of salt water where there is plenty of fish and they like to dive deep to catch them. Seals live a relatively isolated life and prefer an environment without predators or humans. Rocks by the water are not essential, but preferred. Seals don’t move especially fast over land and favour rocks for quicker and easier access to the water. Survival problems Seals need food and if their climate is threatened in any way and food becomes […]

Myths and facts about seals hunting

July 10, 2017 [email protected] 0

As I am someone who is strongly against animal cruelty, it is hard to stay unbiased talking about the hunting of 12-day old baby seals. But the hunting of the baby seals is allowed by the Government of Canada quoting around 325,000 seals that can be killed each year. The problem is, everyone involved in storytelling has their own agenda. Greenpeace or PETA, the government, the hunters. And the discussion, if we could even call it that, is filled with hate on both sides of the aisle. So, depending on what is your source, your outlook into the whole situation may be completely different. So, in this article all I can do is stick to the facts and try to explain the situation as clearly as I can. Facts about Canada-regulated seal hunting The process of killing a seal is strictly regulated to ensure no unnecessary suffering of the animal. Any seal killing against the protocol will result in losing the hunting license as well as a fine as significant as $4,000. There is native seal hunting as well as commercial hunting. But two are rarely separated and if blocked outright, it would impact native Inuit communities in the Newfoundland. Seals […]
