Koalas Being Ripped Out of Trees

All peaceful here at the Koala Hospital - patients are doing really well and we have four joeys ready for release and some out of area koalas from Barrington (near Gloucester) and three from Gunnedah all bouncing with health and just about ready to be returned.
Down in Victoria the koalas are not doing well at all. The Blue Gum Plantation issue in Western Victoria and South Australia is still causing devastation - koalas are still being ripped out of trees as they are being logged and the Victorian Government just doesnt seem to want to know about it. Even the loggers themselves on the plantations are very upset with the whole mess.
Why we ask - why are these precious native animals being treated this way?

KOALAS KEPT INDOORS AT ZOOS ARE DEVELOPING METABOLIC BONE DISEASE

Due to climate restrictions in parts of North America and Europe, koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) are housed indoors. Koala young (joeys) raised indoors are susceptible to the development of metabolic bone disease (MBD) due to a lack of exposure to natural ultraviolet light to themselves and their female parents (dams). In this retrospective study, radiographs from 27 koala joeys born at four zoos in North America and two zoos in Europe were evaluated for signs of MBD. Eight of the joeys were radiographically diagnosed with MBD and four additional joeys were considered suspect MBD cases; in two joeys absence or presence of MBD could not be determined. All joeys had mild to severe hip and shoulder dysplasia. There were significant associations between a lack of exposure to UV light and MBD development and between MBD and the degree of severity of hip and shoulder dysplasia. It is recommended to house breeding female koalas and their joeys outdoors whenever possible.

Judge Grants TRO to Stop Sale of Wild Horses At NV Slaughter Auction

Order could delay tomorrow’s sale of nearly 500 horses at Fallon Livestock Exchange
Reno, Nevada (August 16, 2013 . . . A federal court judge in Reno, NV has granted a coalition of wild horse advocacy and conservation groups a Temporary Restraining Order to block the sale of unbranded horses at a slaughter auction tomorrow in Fallon, Nevada. The groups sued to stop the sale of unbranded horses who were captured last weekend on public and tribal lands in northern Nevada, alleging that unbranded horses were likely federally-protected wild horses originating from the nearby Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Little Owyhee Herd Management Area.

Extraordinary hippo

2010. A hippo in Africa saved a young wildebeest and a zebra from drowning as they crossed a river. The strong current of the Tanzania river would surely have taken the lives of the wildebeest and zebra had it not been for the quick-thinking and selfless hippo.
Tom Yule, manager of the Grumeti Expeditions tour operating company, captured the rescues on video in October and his son Michael (13) took the photos.Yule and several others saw the strong current sweep a young wildebeest calf downstream.

"The hippo immediately went after it and positioned itself on the downstream side of the calf, nudging it with its snout and keeping it above the water all the way across the river until the calf reached the other side and managed to get out and join the rest of the herd." Barely five minutes later the water swept away a zebra foal. The hippo immediately set off after the foal and helped it toward the opposite bank in the same way.

"The hippo got out of the water and came up behind the foal and started nudging it and gently biting it on its backside as if to say, 'Come on man, don't give up now, you can do it. Just a hop, skip and a jump and you're there.' "The foal slowly stepped off of the island and crossed the little channel on to the opposite side and rejoined the rest of the family group".

There is no way to stop Fukushima radioactive water leaking into the Pacific - expert

АЭС Фукусима-1 TEPCO Фукусима TEPCO

The rate at which contaminated water has been pouring into the Pacific Ocean from the disabled Fukushima nuclear plant is worse than previously thought, an Industry Ministry official said Wednesday as PM Shinzo Abe pledged to step up efforts to halt the crisis. The Voice of Russia contacted Arnold Gundersen, founder and president of Fairewinds Associates, to discuss the crisis and its possible solutions. The expert suggests radioactive material will continue to leak into the global seas unless the plant is surrounded with a trench filled with zeolite. Even then however, toxic material will still flow into  the Pacific through underwater routes.

The Taiji Dolphin Slaughter: A Scientific Issue

© OCEANA
The dolphin drive hunt in Taiji, Japan has been at the center of animal activism for many years and now it has finally come to the center of science.
The dolphin drive in Taiji involves the corralling of dolphins into a cove for slaughter or to be removed and then sold to representatives from marine parks. An estimated 22,000 small whales, dolphins, and porpoises are killed in these hunts each year.
Dr. Andy Butterworth of the University of Bristol and colleagues have published a paper in the Journal of Applied Animal Welfare Science analyzing the methods used by Taiji fishermen to kill the dolphins in the drive hunts. Through their analysis, the authors have revealed disturbing levels of physical trauma inflicted on the dolphins, and commented that these methods would not be acceptable under any international animal welfare standards.
The paper has compared the information provided by the Japanese government on the dolphin slaughter with video footage of the methodology and concludes that the current methodology leads to prolonged trauma and paralysis, which contradicts the information in the government report.
The publication of this paper has raised awareness of the dolphin slaughter within the scientific community and has elevated the issue to a peer reviewed scientific journal, raising the profile of the travesty in Taiji.  This added pressure from the scientific community, which validates the efforts of so many advocacy efforts, could be what is needed to convince the Japanese government to end these hunts for good.
Video of the slaughter is available but be prepared, it is extremely disturbing.

beluga whale
(Photo: LibertyGrace0/Creative Commons via Flickr)
A trainer was injured on Thursday, August 8 at Marineland, in Ontario, Canada, during a show featuring two beluga whales. The injured trainer, a young female, was taken to the hospital after the incident, according to the blog Everyone Hates Marineland.

The incident was also videotaped and posted on YouTube by someone named Tom Blake. In it, at around 1:45 minutes, it appears that something is not right with the female trainer and the whale she is working with. Then, instead of springing up vertically out of the water and onto the “slideout” area, as her male counterpart does, she needs to be helped from the pool by her colleague, before collapsing in what appears to be serious pain.

Dolphin watching "is modern dolphin hunting" in the future.
I think absolutely like that.
The fisherman repeats age before long, too, and the hunting is not possible, too.
The fisherman should change it to watching now for aged time.
Time when the fisherman already thinks about the happiness of dolphins comes.
But, they do not notice it.
Therefore I made up my mind to do watching with the support of all of you.

Pygmy elephant calf desperately tries to wake up dead mother who was one of ten animals found poisoned


'Great loss': A three-month-old elephant calf attempts to wake its mother; one of ten pygmy elephants found dead in Malaysia's Sabah state

  • A total of ten of the creatures have been discovered in the Gunung Rara Forest Reserve, Borneo, over the past three weeks
  • Conservation officials believe the endangered animals had been poisoned
  • Estimated to be fewer than 1,500 Borneo pygmy elephants in existence 
  • Again and again, the baby elephant nudged its mother’s head hoping desperately for a sign of movement.
It was to no avail. She had become another victim of a mysterious spate of deaths in the tropical rainforest.
If wildlife officials had not led the three-month-old infant to safety, it would probably have remained beside its mother until it, too, died.
'Great loss': A three-month-old elephant calf attempts to wake its mother; one of ten pygmy elephants found dead in Malaysia's Sabah state

Its distress moved the rescuers to tears, and left them desperate to discover who or what caused the tragedy.
In total, ten Borneo pygmy elephants have been found dead in three weeks at the Gunung Rara Forest Reserve.
The bodies were all near to each other and while poisoning appears to be the likely cause, it has yet to be determined whether it was intentional.
The animals still had their tusks, indicating that they had not been killed by poachers, and none had gunshot wounds.

Mr. Izumi Ishii-San

From Dolphin Hunting to Dolphin Watching


Once one of the most outspoken advocates of the capture and killing of dolphins in Futo.

Izumi Ishii was a 3rd generation dolphin hunter, and is still a 6th generation fisherman. His father and grandfather taught him the ways of the sea. Taught him to fish, taught him to hunt.

Tear of the dolphin ~ Izumi Ishii



But Ishii-san has changed everything. "I heard the sound of the dolphins crying as they were killed. I could not bear it" he said in describing his reasons for converting from dolphin killing to dolphin watching."The value I now see in dolphins is not the value of their meat, but of the wonder they incite in us."

 "I had been moved by the sight of pods of dolphins and sometimes forgot my job as a hunter even when I was hunting them. I would like to convey my excited feelings to people through dolphin watching." ~ Bluevoice.org


In 1997, Izumi Ishii reported to the authorities that the hunters were catching far more dolphins than their quotas allowed. There was no lawful penalty at the time for this over-catching of dolphins, but Izumi Ishii insisted to the Fishery Agency, Pref. Fishery Dept. and his own Fishermen Union, until penalties were created.

September 25, 2002 - The Maiden sailing of The New Kohkaimaru (click to go to Ishii-san's website)

The dolphin hunting season in Japan runs from September until March, but Futo has not hunted dolphins since 2005.  There are orders from aquariums, but still, they will NOT provide.

Izumi Ishii promised the dolphins and whales that he will protect them.

TOKYO—Japan's prime minister, Shinzo Abe, pressed ahead with his priority of shutting down the whaling and dolphin programs. At an unscheduled meeting, Prime Minister Abe mentioned “These steps will put Japan firmly in this century and we can leave this embarrassing behavior in our past”. Vowing for quick action to pull the country out of these programs, different meetings are scheduled so Japan can live up to global standards within the year.
Prime minister Abe appeared in a t-shirt of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, the leading organization in the fight against the whaling and dolphin programs in Japanese territorial waters and the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary in Antarctica. Former president of Sea Shepherd, Mister Watson, who recently stepped down, has not yet responded to the news.

Vegan diet and the flu epidemic

Dear Editor:

The flu epidemic has invaded 48 states, overwhelming medical facilities, exhausting vaccine supplies and killing 29 children and thousands of seniors. Both the problem and solution to this disaster hinge on how we relate to animals raised for food.

Indeed, 61 percent of the 1,415 pathogens known to infect humans originate with animals. The more recent, contagious and deadly viruses among these include Asian, dengue fever, Ebola, H5N1 (bird), HIV, SARS, West Nile Virus and yellow fever. The pandemic “Spanish” flu of 1918 killed 20 million to 50 million people worldwide, and the World Health Organization predicts more pandemics in the future.

Today's factory farms are virtual flu factories. Sick, crowded, highly stressed animals in contact with contaminated feces and urine provide ideal incubation media for viruses. As these microbes reach humans, they mutate to defeat the new host's immune system and then propagate by contact.

Each of us can help end animal farming and build up our own immune system against the flu by replacing animal products in our diet with vegetables, fruits and whole grains. These foods don't carry flu viruses or government warning labels, are touted by every major health advocacy organization and were the recommended fare in the Garden of Eden.

By becoming a member for just $10.00 a year, you will receive a newsletter quarterly informing you of the progress of our animals. A donation of $10.00 can provide formula for one month for a joey.
