General Announcement

This blog is still very much a work in progress, and its name, content, and general design therefore subject to change. I am very thankful to everyone who decides to follow me in my first attempt at blogging and ask you all to bear with me! under construction


Words of Wisdom #1

Compassion for animals is intimately associated with goodness of character, and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to living creatures cannot be a good man. – Arthur Schopenhauer 


A weekly dose of animal news content

For all those who see animals as individuals rather than mere representatives of their species, and who appreciate and cherish the positive impact they have on the world and its inhabitants, I highly recommend the weekly Animal News Hour podcast. Brought to you by David Forjan of the New York-based Wolf Conservation Center, it deals with current developments in animal welfare and conservation, and introduces us to individual animals who, for one reason or another, have made recent headline news. An hour well spent on a lazy Sunday afternoon!
