We always receive the warmest of welcomes from our wonderful animal companions as we return home, but have you wondered what they do while we are away? Are you aware of any other skills they have apart from shaking our hands and catching frisbes? 

As we watch the little turtle basking in the sun laying on a stone, let’s pause for a moment and wonder, “Are you sure he considers himself a turtle?” 

Join us on the Animal Channel to learn about unknown facts of our animal friends whom we seemingly feel we are familiar with.

Animal Mothers are Awesome! Part 2 of 2

Animal moms are compassionate and caring, thinking nothing of sacrificing their health and safety to defend, nurture and raise their young. Their wholehearted dedication to their babies deserves our utmost admiration and appreciation. Hens are exemplary brave mothers and very mindful of their chicks’ safety. During a rainstorm, if there is no shelter, momma hen will spread her wings and let her babies stand under them. She doesn’t care that she gets completely soaked at all!

Through the Generations - Animal Cultural Traditions

Many people think that culture is a characteristic only found in human societies. I am thrilled to tell you that modern scientific research shows that animals including primates, cetaceans, birds, fish and insects also have traditions that are transmitted across their social groups and to new generations. We animals that live in a community are just like humans, having our norms, traditions and cultural practices that characterize who we are and help us to adapt to our particular ecological niches.

Veterinarian Dr. Du Bai: The World Through the Eyes of Our Animal Friends, Part 1 of 2

Not only do canine and feline companions provide psychological support to humans, but we also are very gifted in assisting with your physical conditions. But why are dogs and cats able to relieve your stress? It is because they can smell it with their nose. When you are very sad, and when you pour your heart out and talk to them, they can smell the changes in your hormones. So, in fact, they often comfort you. “It’s ok; it’s all right.” After all your sorrows are washed away, you will feel better.

Animals Are Love

When we love the animals, our love will naturally develop. Those of you who are taking care of dogs, birds, or other pets, know how it’s like. When you are with them, and when you look at them, you just want to love them. You can’t think of anything else, and there is nothing you can do about it. You just want to love them and pamper them. Then, naturally your home is permeated with this ambience of love. It will engulf our whole house, our home, and eventually it will spread to the world. If there is such a loving atmosphere in every home, the world will definitely be in peace.

The Laughing Kookaburra of Australia

If you’ve never heard a kookaburra singing, just think of your laughter after hearing a really funny joke. That gives you an idea of the echoing sound of the ever-chuckling kookaburra! In indigenous Australian culture, kookaburras are viewed as emotionally fragile birds. Making fun of us can hurt our feelings, thus taking away our joyous laugh which serves to wake up our world. It is believed that great respect should be shown to us at all times to keep harmony and happiness on our planet.

Marc Pierschel - An Altruistic Spirit for Animals, Humans and the Planet, Part 1 of 2

I decided to make films because I think films have the potential to reach a lot of people. I feel like the picture and the stories of people, that people tell, can reach like a really broad audience and internationally. What I'm trying to achieve, is to make people aware that their consumption choices have effects on everything; not just on themselves, but also on the animals and on the planet. So, I'm trying to make people aware that what they eat or what they choose to eat is crucial to the health of the planet and to animals. And so, that's kind of my endeavor with the films I make.

Super Seal Conservation in South Africa & Canada

Supreme Master Ching Hai explained why seals are so vital to our planet during a 2009 interview with the Irish journalist Louise Kings. “The seals have conveyed that it is important for them to be allowed to stay on Earth - not for themselves, but so they can continue doing their job, which is to keep the Earth in balance with love. You see, the seals and the whales emanate an incredible, great power of divine love, an unconditional love that could be likened to that between a mother and her child. They anchor and distribute this wave of love across our planet. And it is this love that is sustaining our planet and keeping it from destruction up to now. So , we should never ever hunt and kill these noble, gracious helpers of humankind and the planet.”

The Marvelous Animal Sea Purifiers

Have you ever wondered how, outside of the trash like plastic or wastewater that may sadly end up there, the seas remain so pure? If you guessed that it is the amazing sea ecosystems that keep the oceanic environments so beautiful, you are right! It is known that there are more than one billion microbes in a liter of seawater. Some animals, such as sponges, clams, oysters, and mussels, keep the ocean pure by continuously filtering the water. A cleaner wrasse works about four hours a day and can clean more than 2000 “customers” daily!

The Podemos Party’s Sergio García Torres: Advancing Animal Rights and Veganism in Spain, Part 2 of 2

Everything that is involved in the production of meat generates, in the process from the beginning to the end, a carbon footprint impossible to compare with other types of food production worldwide. The FAO(Food and Agriculture Organization) already knows about this.Another very important issue is pesticides, which are killing the bees and all other pollinators. If bees disappear, we humans will also disappear within a 10-year period. In other words, insect are needed to pollinate. We must move towards banning any kind pesticide that harms humanity. Because if bees get harmed, we are also harming ourselves.

Megabat – The Amazing Vegan Flying Fox

We are frugivorous and nectarivorous and thus love nectar and pollen from the flowers of trees. Moreover, we eat various fruits like bananas, mangos, figs, dates and avocados – almost any kind of pulpy fruit is good for us. Because fruit is one of our primary foods, we are also known as fruit bats. We are also called flying foxes because we can soar in the air and our cute, furry faces look quite a bit like that of a fox! Bats, including megabats and microbats, are the only mammals capable of real and sustained flight with our own wings.

I’m Sica Schmitz. I’m the founder of Bead & Reel and the creator of the Fair Trade Fashion Show [Impact Fashion Show]. My journey to veganism honestly started through grief. It was really my father’s death that turned me vegan. Meditation has been transformative for me. It’s a practice that I just can’t highly recommend enough. For me, it’s been such an incredible journey inward and I think it does tie back into sort of activism. I have an affiliate network, which connects conscious brands and conscious content creators, so that people can promote and share about things more easily.

Also, the contamination is affecting health. Agriculture must increasingly be focused on what food means to people, and we must reduce more and more, the exclusive foods, meaning agriculture exclusively done to feed livestock. We must advance because this in not sustainable. It is not a matter of opinion, it is already a matter of real information. All lines of political work, at least in our organization, are focused on that: sustainable feeding (of humans) and sustainable agriculture, local agriculture, agriculture that respects times, respects seasons, and respects local seeds.

The Secrets That Cats Keep, Part 2 of 2

Researchers have analyzed the purrs of many different cats and have determined that the sounds we make are mostly within the range of 20 to 140 hertz. Experiments have shown that vibrations in this range are therapeutic for bone growth, pain relief, mending fractures, reducing swelling, wound healing, muscle growth and repair, breathing difficulties, and relieving migraines. So, when we cats get injured, we may purr to stimulate our own healing. What’s more – since we know we have this ability – we will often cuddle up and purr when our human companion in hurt or sick, because we want to help.
