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.

Natural World: The Chimpcam Project

Natural World: The Chimpcam ProjectHow does a chimpanzee see the world? A research project at Edinburgh Zoo is designed to answer just that question in an innovative new way – by training chimps to use video touch screens and giving them a special chimp-proof camera.

How will they react to tools which in evolutionary terms are a few million years ahead of them?

As chimp specialist Betsy Herrelko finds out, trying to communicate with chimps using video technology has its trials and tribulations as power struggles, bites and fights get in the way of the hairy chimp directors.

However, by the end of the programme we are privileged to see the world’s first film shot by chimpanzees.

Octopus Too-Use
The octopus is widely regarded as the world’s smartest invertebrate, and a new study adds evidence to that claim.

umm michael egg yolks are the unhealthy part of the egg. It the part with all the bad cholesterol. And just like a number of other canadian performers she snuck across the border to make a living. Don't make me list them all we don't have time and I certainly don't have the inclination. How many Americans move to Canada to make a living in the entertainment industry?

Actually Michael mayo is unhealthy. And please you are welcome to keep Celine.

Michael, the issue with the geese is that there are many TIMES more Canadian geese now then there ever were(total geese populations have doubled in the last ten years), especially along the east coast. They are interfering with the recovery of some rare geese in the eastern arctic, some of which winter in Europe. The Canadian geese are winning, at the expense of some of the other kinds.

You make me laugh Bill... All those Canadian 'snow birds' trespassing and invading your home state.

@ Michel Poisson I'm talking about the ones with the disturbing penchant for mayonnaise. You could fill a city with them here in south Florida.
