Billy the Elephant is currently suffering at the LA Zoo - his trial starts today. Let's permanently close down the elephant exhibit and stop any more elephants from a life in captivity. The average age of death for L.A. Zoo elephants since 1975 is 22 years. By comparison, a wild elephant’s natural lifespan can be over 70 years.

Rise Above Plastics::This is what is happening to shore birds in alarmingly increasing numbers. This bird died because it was ingesting plastic discarded by humnan beings. I have read that the fish are also ingesting partially broken down plastics, too. It litters the ocean floor.
A wonderful short video on what's happening to the shells, sea stars, crabs, oysters, and other shelled marine animals that live in the ocean. You may have heard of it before - Ocean Acidification. Please spend a few minutes to see what is going on with these animals, so you stay educated and can educate others around you. Pay It Forward. :)
