The Wild Nature Institute has undertaken a critically important research project on the Maasai giraffe in Tarangire National Park in Tanzania, with the goal of learning more about this understudied animal and how we can best protect its habitat.

How To: Clip Dog Nails by Animal Wonders Montana

Taken directly from video description

Jessi does a short example of how to get your dog familiar and comfortable clipping their nails.

This video is not intended to teach you how to train your dog, but is intended to help you desensitize them to the process of having their foot held and having the nail clippers present. If your dog has anxiety around the clippers or with their foot held, repeat the first part of the process until they are comfortable having their foot touched, held, and manipulate in the presence of the clippers. Never force your dog to have their foot held or nails clipped, go slowly and have many sessions until they are calm during the process. Remember: give lots of calm massages and treats!


The Reason Pesticides May Be Worse Than You Think by Discover News

Taken from the video decsription

Pesticides have a number of negative side effects, and one of them is the death of a large portion of bird and bee populations! What does this mean for humans? Alex Farnham from Animalist News joins DNews to discuss how our food supply could be at risk!

Pesticides linked to dwindling bird numbers – Dutch study…
“The report is the first evidence that neonicotinoid pesticides, restricted in the European Union because of worries about bees, are having knock-on effects on larger creatures by reducing insect prey such as mosquitoes or beetles.”

“Neonicotinoids are a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically similar to nicotine.”

Declines in insectivorous birds are associated with high neonicotinoid concentrations…
“Recent studies have shown that neonicotinoid insecticides have adverse effects on non-target invertebrate species.”

Perspective on Sharks


Thank you to Rodney Fox for sharing his story. He was attacked by a shark 50 years ago – Dec. 8 1963. If you’re interested in his book or in going shark cage diving in South Australia, check out:

Shark Attacks Statistics:

For Every one human killed by a shark there are roughly millions of sharks killed by humans. An estimated 100 million killed every year

WWF: Great White Shark


Veritasiums 10 Facts about Great White Sharks:

Video description

Remarkably little is known about great white sharks, but they are similar to humans in a lot of ways – they give birth to live young, maintain a higher body temperature than their surroundings and they are apex predators. There are also many misconceptions about these sharks: people think they don’t get cancer and that they reside mainly in shallow waters near beaches. In this video I summarize some of the most interesting things I learned about sharks on my cage diving adventure.

Special thanks to Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions for making this trip possible:

Thanks also to Tourism South Australia for facilitating the trip:

Chris Cassella or C² as he is known after this trip was a shark spotter extraordinaire. He also took some of the best shark footage in this video. It was his idea to go on this expedition, which was definitely a once in a lifetime experience, so I am in his debt. Chris, I look forward to going on more great adventures with you.
