Welcome to WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE


Ecology | Animal Science & Evolution | Ethology & Behavioral Ecology | Wildlife Conservation | Habitat Preservation | Animal Cognition & Emotion | Endangered Species | Animal Rights & Welfare | Animal Agriculture | Companion Animals | Humane Living & Activism

As you can guess, this group is all about animals—both wild and domesticated—and the complicated relationship we have with them. It is about exploring and understanding their lives, and how they touch ours and we theirs in return.

As listed above, posts can consist of anything related to animals: science, evolution, behavior, food production, humane living, and pets.

Whether you work with animals or if you’re just a nature lover and pet owner, this group will hopefully have something for you. I look forward to your contributions.

To post discussions that are solely about environmentalism and sustainability, please join Green Atheists.

I noticed last night that there was a lot of content missing from the page but hadn't realised it's because she had left, how sad.

Sad when we have unintended consequences...

Data from banded penguins suffer from fatal flaw

Tracking bands can harm penguins
Increased mortality, decreased energy among side effects

The release of the bison is only good news if they are part of the original / rare herd and not mixed with domesticated bovine.

Genetically Engineered Salmon coming to a store and stream near you.

 

Although they may be safe to eat, are sterile, and will only live in ponds, it’s only a matter of time before a flood and some get out with mutation to reproduce, the strongest drive in the animal world that they end up polluting the wild salmon population. That may not sound bad at first, since they grow to market weight of as much as 13 pounds in two, or three years, compared with three to four years required for natural salmon. Will mutated fish be able to survive in the wild with occasional scarce food sources wild salmon may occasionally suffer with.

The power of unintended consequences are unknown.

FUCK! thank you guys and gals for giving me the best laugh today. I really wish some parts of the planet would just vanish into the ocean. I think these idiots are beyond change.  I am curious tho, why do female dogs hump? It's not like they know about strap-on dildoes? hehehe
