Only around 3500 to 7000 snow leopards still live in the wild. A vote is expected on the Great Cats and Rare Canids Act soon after Congress returns early next month, so Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund needs donations to advertise the act in order for people in Washington (and elsewhere) to know about it.
Ok Vancouver, I'm coming home. I'll be back in the park on the 10th of May. The boyos are waiting. If you've never gazed deep into the eyes of a heavy horse, you've never lived. We'll be meandering round Stanley Park and spinning yarns, telling tales telling the truth about Stanley Park... no not the politically correct hail to the far thinking entrepreneurs of old. No I shall tell you of greed and fighting and of politics and strange bedfellows... of cheatin and stealin and the mayhem that is the hidden legacy of the green jewel of Vancouver. We'll wander past the fallen giants of the Storms of '06 and wonder and speculate about their fate.
I love my dog Lucy more than anything I can think of. Technically I rescued her from a shelter 6 years ago, but really, we both know that she rescued me. She is the best friend I have ever had. She has taught me some of the most important lessons I have learned, and she makes me laugh every day with her crazy border collie antics. I read this post this morning and immediately knew I wanted to get involved.
Up until this morning I killed little bugs. I would see them crawling on the floor and I would automatically crush them with my foot. But this morning I was thinking about this site and wondering what I could change about myself. And at that moment, I saw a little bug.
