Please take your litter home! by Ian A Kirk on Flickr.I found this drake mallard at Hatchpond this morning. Although it could walk and fly and swim it was clearly a bit sluggish compared to other ducks - too quick for me to catch unfortunately. I wonder how long the plastic from a four-pack of cans has been around its throat? RSPCA have been advised.

funnywildlife: Shark Finning Thrives in Hongkong’s Rooftops!!Thousands of shark fins dry on the rooftop on a building in Kennedy Town, Hong Kong. Environmentalists want China to outlaw the trade and practice of shark finning, where fins are chopped off the sharks and the bodies thrown back into the water to die. It is estimated that up to 75,000 sharks a year are killed to fulfil the demand in Hong Kong and mainland China for shark fin soup, which is considered a delicacy that is popular in traditional banquets and weddings. Shark fin also has the reputation of benefiting health and boosting sexual potency.Photograph: Antony Dickson/AFP/Getty ImagesA couple of petitions for you to sign:Get active and do something:http://www.sharksavers.org/en/get-active/sign-a-petition/test-petition-2http://www.change.org/petitions/prime-minister-john-key-and-the-new-zealand-government-stop-shark-finning-in-new-zealand-waters-and-ban-the-trade-of-all-shark-fin-products

Tiger Temple- Illegal Trade, Animal Cruelty & Visitor Safety Risks
HOPEFULLY AFTER WATCHING THIS U WILL SIGN THE PETITION AND NEVER GO TO THE TIGER TEMPLE!!!
Following the worldwide broadcast of the two-part documentaries by Animal Planet, the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi, Thailand, has become a popular tourist destination that attracts hundreds of tourists daily
The Tiger Temple’s success is based around claims that its tigers were rescued from poachers, and live and move freely and peacefully amongst the temple’s monks, who are actively engaged in conservation and rescue work.
Prompted by concerns raised by tourists and Tiger Temple volunteer workers, Care for the Wild International’s (CWI) investigation uncovered disturbing evidence of serious conservation and animal welfare concerns, including
- illegal tiger trafficking
- systematic physical abuse of the tigers held at the temple, and
- high risk interactions between tigers and tourists.

Pony the Orangutan Prostitute!!!! Never Again! Pony the Orangutan was found by the Orangutan Survival Foundation in a “prostitute village” in Borneo, chained to a wall and lying on a jizz-stained mattress. She was completely shaved and covered with infected mosquito bites. Apparently she had been captured and was being shaved every other day to make her nice and hairless for the men that paid to fuck her. Yes, an Orangutan was being shaved and used as a prostitute…here is a close-up. If a man walked near her, she would turn herself around, present herself, and start gyrating and going through the motions. She was being used as a sex slave. She was probably about six or seven years old when we rescued her, but she had been held captive by a madam for a long time. The madam refused to give up the animal because everyone loved Pony and she was a big part of their income. They also thought Pony was lucky, as she would pick winning lottery numbers. It took the Orangutan Survival Foundation a year to rescue Pony from the godless savages because whenever they showed up, the madame and the men of the “prostitute village” would brandish their poison-dipped daggers in a threatening fashion. Apparently Pony was quite the cash cow. The Orangutan Survival Foundation finally raised the money to round up 35 policemen—Read, hired mercenaries—with AK 47s—and they forced the madame and her cutthroat townies under the threat of massacre to release Pony.This is a true story. No one was charged for exploiting Pony. All information and text comes from Save The Orangutan! http://www.animal.org.au/ http://savetheorangutan.org/splash.html http://www.animal.org.au/
A new book has produced a damning verdict on SeaWorld and the future of keeping killer whales in captivity in the wake of trainer Dawn Brancheau’s death at the hands of Tilikum (pictured) in 2010 ‘Killer whales at Seaworld had teeth removed with power drills and were left to mourn on own after being separated from young’, claims shocking new book. The book examines the dark side of keeping killer whales in captivity has slammed SeaWorld for its treatment of the enormous beasts and for massive safety failings which still haunt the world famous marine parks. Claiming that the 12,000 pound animals are self harming and that staff are inadequately prepared for another killer whale attack incident, ‘Death at SeaWorld’ has been published two-and-a-half years after the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau in Orlando. Brutally butchered in February 2010 by a killer whale named Tilikum, the book states that such an event was inevitable and that these kinds of tragic occurrences will continue if the animals continue to be treated in the same way.

Luxury car customisation specialists Dartz were commissioned by an anonymous client based on the French Riviera to finish the vehicle in a black leather finish.
