love is share

One of the secrets of happiness is being able to share.
Human animals have yet to learn

Texas: 4000 sea turtles rescued!

4000 turtles could be saved from freezing to death!

On an island in southern Texas, more than 4000 sea turtles have been rescued from the cooled water in the Gulf of Mexico in the past few days and temporarily housed in a conference center to warm up there.

The severe onset of winter in the US state of Texas triggered a large-scale rescue operation for thousands of sea turtles.

The organization Sea Turtle Inc, which cares for the protection of sea turtles in the region, started the rescue operation.
The animals were spread out on plastic sheets in rooms and corridors of the congress center.

Sea Turtle’s Sanjuana Zavala told the German Press Agency on Thursday that the turtles were in a kind of rigidity in which they could not move, eat and drink until they were warmed up again.

This state lasted for several days. “We just have to wait and see now.”

There are real heavyweights among the turtles

The animals don’t necessarily have to be in the water in this state, emphasized Zavala.
In the beginning, they used the children’s paddling pool for some of the rescued turtles. But given a large number of animals, there weren’t enough such tanks.

As soon as the water temperature in the sea rises above 12 degrees Celsius again, the animals could be brought back there. The rescued turtles would have a weight of up to 180 kilograms.

A severe onset of winter is currently plaguing large parts of the United States and has led to massive power outages. The state of Texas in the south of the country is the hardest hit.

South Padre Island is near the US border with Mexico.
Zavala said that in the past few years her organization had occasionally had to rescue turtles from the sea in winter.
But it was never more than 200 at a time.
“We have never had it to this extent.”

Therefore one had to switch to the congress center. There, too, there were temporary problems with the electricity in view of the snowstorm.
But in the building, the turtles are protected from wind and weather and protected from the cold water in the sea.

The goodness of animals

❄️ It was -21 degrees that day.

Then suddenly, a passerby saw a goose stuck to a post.
Troubling, the passerby wanted to help him but a detail irritated him.

As he approaches, he notices that the goose was covering a puppy under its wings to keep him warm 🐶

A pretty scene full of love and tenderness 😍

Again, we have a lot to learn from our animal friends.

My best regards to all, Venus

 

New Zealand: more than 20 pilot whales saved!

Again it is the “death trap” Farewell Spit in New Zealand, where several pilot whales ran aground within one day. Volunteers formed a human chain to drive the whales into deeper water.

More than 20 pilot whales have been returned to deeper waters after a second stranding off New Zealand.
“The whales are currently swimming freely off the coast and are monitored by a boat from the nature conservation authority,” said the organization Project Jonah on Tuesday.

Volunteers formed a human chain to drive the whales into deeper water.

On Monday, February 22nd, around 50 animals were stranded on the Farewell Spit headland. Many of them died, but about 28 survived the night.

Numerous helpers were on duty to cool the whales until the tide set in, as the broadcaster Radio New Zealand reported.

Why the marine mammals were stranded was still unclear. For the group it seemed to be the first time, the animals showed no abrasions, the station quoted the ranger Amanda Harvey

Scientists are still trying to find out why such incidents are more common at Farewell Spit, it said.
In February 2017 alone, between 600 and 700 whales were stranded there, 250 of them died.

Whales are repeatedly stranded on the coasts of New Zealand.
Why marine mammals lose their bearings is unclear.

Presumably, they follow a stray or sick animal into shallow water. The animals may have responded to calls from their conspecifics who were stranded on Friday, as Daren Grover of the animal welfare group Project Jonah involved in the rescue said.

The largest mass stranding of pilot whales in New Zealand occurred in 1918 when a thousand mammals landed on the remote island of Chatham.

In 1985, 450 pilot whales stranded in Auckland.
At the Farewell Spit headland, which is around 150 kilometers west of the tourist town of Nelson, there have been at least nine mass strandings in the past ten years.

And I mean … Scientists don’t know, nor do we know why the animals were stranded.
We can only be happy about the survivors and would like to thank the people from the bottom of our hearts who have contributed with all their might to the rescue

My best regards to all, Venus

 

Prejudices …

A French minister and his carnist ideology!

“Stop putting ideology on our children’s plates,” French minister says after major city removes meat from school lunches
French Agriculture Minister Julien Denormandie has argued against injecting “ideology” into school lunches after the city of Lyon removed the meat from the menus.

Local officials said it would help them follow Covid-19 protocols.

“Let’s stop putting ideology on our children’s plates,” Denormandie tweeted on Sunday.

“Let’s just give them what they need to grow well. Meat is part of it,” he wrote, adding that he had asked the region’s perfect, a state-appointed official, to overrule the move.

Officials in Lyon, France’s third-largest city, said schools would have a meat-free menu starting on Monday.

They argued that the change would help to “streamline” the work of cafeterias while they followed the requirements on social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Stephanie Leger, the city’s top education official, told AFP the new menu “will allow us to speed up the service and, thus, allow us to cater to all children.”

“To match the tastes of the largest number [of students], we have decided to remove meat,” Leger said. She added that the menu could not be considered vegan because the cafeterias would continue to serve fish and eggs, and that meat would return once the “sanitary situation allows it.”

Nevertheless, the idea to exclude meat from school lunches immediately caused a backlash from right-wing politicians. Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin labeled it an “unacceptable insult to French farmers and butchers.” (!!!)

“We can see that the moralizing and elitist policy of the Greens excludes the popular classes. Many children often only get to eat meat at the school canteen,” he tweeted, calling it a “scandalous ideology.” (!!!)

And I mean...For God’s sake, Monsieur Denormandie! those are adventurous arguments that you bring!
Animal fats are the leading cause of diabetes, obesity, and heart attacks. More and more children are suffering from it!
And do you recommend that?

Is it really an “extreme ideology” for you to refuse to actively participate in an ecological catastrophe?
When one refuses to ignore the barely comprehensible suffering of pigs, chickens, and cattle, etc.?

You should know that veganism is a very promising way to soon be able to feed 10 billion people adequately without completely destroying the earth.
If you are interested in saving our planet, of course.

To dismiss that as “scandalous ideology” is cheap, belittling, and simply idiotic!

And by the way: Meat eaters are really militant, there are a lot more of them than militant vegans, and they are also much more aggressive: because they have no argument against non-meat eaters, except that they want to support their “French farmers and butchers”!

Bavaria: murdered foxes on display

A walker sent PETA images showing numerous foxes hung up on the Doimahof in Alxing, Bavaria.

Füchse getötet und in Bayern zur Schau aufgehängt

The dead animals were tied to wooden pegs there.

PETA filed a complaint about harassment of the general public under Section 118 of the Administrative Offenses Act.

In addition, PETA calls on the people in charge of the Doimahof – which also runs a hotel and restaurant trade – to stop making their property available for such life-threatening activities.

And I mean…The German hunters, the best of all people, show the stupid world once again how to properly do and show mass murder.

A law always helps because the worst part is that it is legal.

Willingness to use violence and the protection of the law, that is all that hunters need for an animal massacre

The village society is obviously outraged by the “indecent” souvenirs on the tree, which give the village a bad reputation, but not for the annual mass murder of 500,000 foxes in Germany by hunters

These are unbearable images for a civilized country
