Battle For Bats: Surviving White Nose Syndrome was produced for the USDA Forest Service by Ravenswood Media. It shows how government and private agencies have come together to search for solutions to help our bat populations overcome WNS. The public can also play a role in the future of bats by providing habitat and surveying their populations. Bats are a critical component in a healthy forest ecosystem, plus they provide significant agricultural pest control and pollination. Their survival is essential for a sustainable natural environment.

Most pet adoption campaigns make us feel pity for the animals but in this one it was the dogs that did the rescuing. The Human Walking Program took dogs that were up for adoption and let them take office workers for a lunchtime walk.
Dave filmed this amazing aerial vision with his quadcopter off Esperance, along south Western Australia’s beautiful coastline. Huge pods of bottlenose dolphins cruise the shoreline, surfing, playing and teaching their young how to forage amongst the crystal clear turquoise waters.
Such intelligent and playful animals - we have a lot to learn from their lifestyle!!
This is Ellie Mae. I think most of us in the Kingdom have seen photos of Quincy and Ellie Mae — sibling Blue Tick Hounds. They are such a riot to be with. They are full of vitality and some wonderful personality quirks that make them unforgettable (Quincy does *not* like flash! And Ellie? She’s such a lady!). They love to be alive.

She may not look it, but Remy is all-Lab. She has this awesome ball-in-a-ball that she lives to play with. She growls at it and argues with it and brings it back to you and drops it at your feet for you to throw again. And again. She is happy, playful, and as loyal as any Lab can be. Here you can see how her face is splattered with mud.
