    Anti-Zoo Group Still Shopping for a Whale “Sanctuary” in Nova Scotia

    Anti-Zoo Group Still Shopping for a Whale “Sanctuary” in Nova Scotia

    If the Whale Sanctuary Project gets its way, then Nova Scotia could end up creating a double standard in the midst of a pending ban against the keeping of cetaceans in marine zoological facilities in Canada. The radical anti-zoo extremist group, which is led by activists Lori Marino, and Charles Vinick, plan to hold town meetings over a ten-day period to pick out a seaside town where they could shop for an area to serve as an “official” home to a beluga whale facility that would be marketed off as a “sanctuary.”

    Coyotes Call for Help

    Coyotes Call for Help

    Coyotes have long held the reputation with humans as being cruel, sneaky, and vicious killers. They have been labeled as dog killers, sheep hunters, and cattle pilferers. Do they deserve this awful reputation or are they merely victims of a smear campaign? Turns out that coyotes might benefit the environment, and the human race, more than we ever anticipated.

    The Beast of Gevaudan

    The Beast of Gevaudan

    The Beast of Gevaudan was a man-eating wolf-like animal that killed over around 100 women and children and wounded 49 back in 1764-1767. The way this animal killed these was by tearing out its victims' throats, most of the victims were partly eaten. Most of the eye witnesses who were able to describe the beast as having formidable teeth and immense tail. They also said that the beast, on many accounts, was wounded but not dead, these injuries included shots at point blank range. This is what made many believe that this animal was a werewolf. Most people wanted to believe that it was a mythical creature rather than believe it was just a wolf because they could not kill it.

    Facts About Elephants

    Facts About Elephants

    Nowadays, people are taking away elephants and their habitats. People are poaching elephants for so many reasons but the main reason is for their tusks, which are ivory, which they use to make jewelry and pieces of art. Elephants will be going extinct if we do not take action to stop the poaching of elephants and help conserve their habitat. Every day, people are taking over the elephants' land and turning it into farms, which leaves the elephants no place to live.

    10 Beloved Animals on the Brink of Extinction

    10 Beloved Animals on the Brink of Extinction

    As the planet spins around on its axis, species of all kinds are forced to find new ways to survive. While this is the natural way of things, it seems humans play a larger role in contributing to the future of what our world will eventually become. Whether it be on a political or personal level, our fellow earthlings are going through trying moments, living a life where their very existence has come into danger. While there are organizations dedicated to ensuring protection for some such species, climate change and criminals pose an immense threat to the future of their well-being. By raising awareness, we can come together and join in on the work these organizations are doing, reduce our use of wasteful materials, and approach the way we consume at a more conscious level in order to protect beloved animals on the brink of extinction.

    Thylacine

    Thylacine

    Are Thylacine extinct or still alive? The Thylacine are also known as the Tasmanian Tiger. The Tasmanian wolf is a carnivorous marsupial that once lived in Australia and New Guinea. These animals were hunted to extinction by men because we thought of them as killers but there are no reports of a Thylacine attack on people. Also, these creatures are known to be very shy creatures. A marsupial is an animal that has a pouch that their joey stays in until they are a year old. The Tasmanian Tiger is a light brown dog looking creature that has black stripes on its back which is why the Thylacine is called the Tasmanian Tiger. Male Thylacines have a pouch that protects their testicles from harm during mating. The Thylacine has the widest yawn gap which enabled them to open their mouth wider than most animals.

    The Cutest Animals You've Never Heard Of

    I think we should start off by saying I'm a completely terrible person. Here I am praising the Photo Ark and my cover photo isn't even from the Photo Ark. I should be permanently cut-off from society in a large metal box with just enough food to survive but not near enough to be happy.
