Innovative Technologies Saving Our Precious Endangered Animals, Part 2 of 2

In today’s program, we will show you some more new, ingenious animal conservation solutions, namely surveillance drones and an acoustic monitoring system, that also employ AI. Air Shepherd is a novel anti-poaching program initially created by the US-based non-profit, the Lindbergh Foundation, and is now run by the South African company UAV & Drone Solutions, to stop night poaching in Africa.

Innovative Technologies Saving Our Precious Endangered Animals, Part 1 of 2

Poaching causes devastation to many animal species worldwide, especially to the endangered megafauna in Africa, where thousands fall victim to poachers and wildlife traffickers each year. Fortunately, there is a beacon of hope. Thanks to pioneering artificial intelligence (AI) technology, rangers can now outsmart the criminals and proactively save these precious animals. Today, I will introduce you to two wonderful, advanced animal conservation technologies used in the field. EarthRanger is an integrated software platform designed by Vulcan Inc., a private American company founded by the late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen that works in many philanthropic fields. The software integrates and displays all key information on an online interactive digital map in real-time. More importantly, EarthRanger has leading AI engines with deep learning capabilities that can predict when and where poaching is most likely to happen, so managers can proactively deploy resources and be one step ahead of the lawbreakers. EarthRanger has assisted law enforcers in removing more than 13,000 animal traps and snares and making more than 1,170 arrests. Many of Africa’s national park managers face several anti-poaching and wildlife trafficking challenges, the most critical being minimal staff. Besides, traditional anti-poaching cameras take photos of everything that moves, which means frequent battery replacements and filtering an excessive number of images, making more work for the already busy rangers. Furthermore, most African wildlife parks lack cell network coverage, so the pictures taken cannot be sent to headquarters fast enough for timely screening. The exciting thing is that all of these problems can be mitigated by ingenious new technology. TrailGuard AI is an advanced anti-poaching camera system designed to address these issues effectively. TrailGuard AI is equipped with many game-changing technologies. Better still, TrailGuard can be integrated with the EarthRanger software platform introduced earlier, and the synergy can provide much more robust protection to vulnerable animals. Thank you to all involved in the development of EarthRanger and TrailGuard AI! These advanced, intelligent technological solutions are a huge step towards saving endangered animal species.

American Bison: Supremely Self-Giving and Uniquely Resilient

American Bison: Supremely Self-Giving and Uniquely Resilient

In the United States, the bison is an iconic animal, commonly referred to as the American buffalo. When we are babies, we are called “red dogs” because of our orange-red fur. As we grow up, the hair turns dark brown. We have distinctive physical features – a huge head with short, curving black horns, a big, muscular shoulder hump and a shaggy coat. The hair in the front is longer than in the rear. Our hooves are circular and strong; when we run, the dust they kick up makes for a spectacular scene. As a matter of fact, many of our activities have a positive impact on the ecosystem. The way that we graze not only provides nesting grounds for our winged friends, but by feeding mostly on grasses and avoiding other plants, we influence biodiversity. During harsh winters, our size and strength enable us to plow through deep snow, creating pathways that other animals can use to reach food. Before immigrants came to North America from Europe, there were 30-60 million bison roaming the continent – from northern Canada to Mexico, and from eastern Washington to New York. They were integral to the lives of the indigenous tribes living on the Northern Great Plains. A spiritual connection developed to such an extent that the people appreciated us as their brothers. This relationship was reinforced by ceremonies and dances. In 2014, then-Cherokee Nation Principal Chief, the Honorable Bill John Baker expressed it this way, “For most of us, the American bison symbolizes our great country – free, strong and resilient. Those are the traits we identify in ourselves as Indian people. That’s why the bison has always represented something deeply spiritual to our tribal ancestors.” Throughout history, the indigenous tribes of North America have held us in high regard and it is well known that Native American culture deeply cherishes our planet and nature. I think all humans can learn from this. At this crisis point for the Earth and its inhabitants, I invite you to pray with me that humanity will finally recognize the interconnectedness of all life and learn to duly honor all embodied souls by forsaking war and banning animal products forever. May people understand, once and for all, that they must be loving if they want our world to become a peaceful paradise for all beings.

Amazing Ants and their Cooperative Communities

00:16:23

Amazing Ants and their Cooperative Communities

We ants have been around for more than 130 million years or since the early Cretaceous Period. Today, there are about 14,000 species of us, and an estimated 10 quadrillion ants live on the earth. You can find us everywhere except Antarctica. As social beings, we all live in colonies of various sizes, from just several ants living in a twig to supercolonies with many millions of individuals. We are peace-loving beings that never compete with others in our colony. Our members always help and do whatever is best for the whole community. We automatically share the labor and divide ourselves into groups to perform different tasks. In a typical ant colony, there is a queen who is much larger than all other nest members. The queen’s primary function is to populate the colony by laying eggs. She is the mother of all the ants in the nest. Even though she is called the queen, she never gives orders or directs others on what to do. When a colony is mature and ready to develop new colonies, it will produce males and future queens and both have wings. The male ants have small heads with large eyes, long antennae, and small mandibles. Their only function is to mate with the future queens, then pass on afterward. Aside from the queen, a typical ant colony includes numerous sterile females known as workers. These laborers are responsible for building the nest and keeping it in order, finding food, looking after the brood and queen, and safeguarding the colony. Their lifespan can be between one to three years. Each worker ant joins a group of ants that perform only one task. Yes, we cooperative ants get our jobs done amicably and efficiently through dividing our work among different teams. Most ant colonies stretch deep underground. Some even reach as deep as 8 meters below the surface. We ants are smart and adaptable animals. When the situation changes, we can easily switch from one task to another to handle an emerging incident. Being flexible serves us very well. While humans speak to each other and use body language to communicate, we create pheromones, each containing a scent message to inform others. Other ants decode the meaning using their antennae. We hope you have been inspired by our cooperation and unity and wish you high spirits and good health.

The Endearing Lemurs of Madagascar

00:15:47

The Endearing Lemurs of Madagascar

Located in the Indian Ocean 400 kilometers off the eastern coast of Africa, this magical place is the fourth largest island in the world after Greenland, New Guinea, and Borneo. Isolated from other landmasses for 88 million years, Madagascar is home to an abundance of unique and unusual species of wildlife. Nearly 90% of animals and plants are endemic, which means they are found nowhere else in the world. The rare and precious examples of these animals include lemurs like me, fossas, tomato frogs, and Madagascar long-eared owls. We lemurs are mammals and primates, and there are around 111 existing species of us. Mostly, we have a foxlike snout, large eyes, and a lengthy tail. Our four fingers are slender and our thumb is short, ending in a dark colored nail. Sizes vary depending on species. Lemurs have colorful appearances. The indri is black and white. The sifaka has a round, black face with silky fur. The long-fingered aye-aye resembles a big house cat. The most “popular” lemur is me. The ring-tailed lemur is a beloved symbol of Madagascar. The lemur habitat range is widespread across the country. We occupy many different areas, including deciduous and spiny forests, wetlands and dry scrub. Lemurs like to socialize in small groups and move around with each other. Even though some nocturnal lemurs keep to themselves during waking hours, they are inclined to sleep with other lemurs during the day. When we are not eating, we enjoy grooming each other and sunbathing. Our lifespan is around 16 years on average in the wild. For us, scents are extremely important communication tools. Among other uses, they are how we mark our territory, thus letting others know our presence. We are also known as “lemur catta,” with “catta” referring to our cat-like appearance. My purring vocalization is similar to that of a house cat. Since the 1950s, approximately 45% of the forest cover in Madagascar has already disappeared due to agricultural activities, illegal logging, charcoal production, and mining. As we dwell in the canopies of large trees, their loss directly impacts our population. The number of ring-tailed lemurs has plummeted more than 95% since 2000. There were about 750,000 of us at the beginning of the 21st century, and now as few as 2,000 remain. Please awaken your loving kindness, not only for Malagasy lemurs, but for all of Earth’s inhabitants.

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 2 of 2

00:15:20

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 2 of 2

In this episode, I will introduce more extraordinary cool daddies in the animal world. They are all champion fathers in their own ways. The endurance winner is the emperor penguin dad, for sure! These fluffy and wobbling birds live and breed in the Antarctic landscape. In winter, after the female transfers her precious single egg to her partner, she goes to the sea straight away to replenish herself with food. To keep the egg warm in the brutal Antarctic weather, he must balance it on top of his feet and press it up against his “brood pouch,” a skin flap on his belly, and cover the egg with his plumage. Additionally, he utilizes group hugs to his advantage! Emperor penguins are famous for creating massive huddles, and these gatherings allow penguins to save energy for warming their cherished chicks that are still developing. Until the moms’ return, these dads guard their eggs alone for around 75 days. They also fast for about 120 days from the beginning of the breeding cycle, which ultimately results in their body weight being reduced by nearly half. Male Barbary macaques are perhaps the proudest animal dads. They often interact with their offspring for hours and carry them; this doting on infants includes caring for the young of others in their group, called a troop, as well. These proud dads nudge and chatter their teeth while holding up their darlings in gatherings. Sand gobies are passionate papas at the top of their game. After the eggs are laid, they defend the eggs intensively and use their pectoral fins to fan them with a motherly touch. This action creates oxygenated currents around the eggs, which encourages them to grow. Giant water bug fathers are the clear winners of the weightlifting category. The female will lay and stick her eggs on the dad’s back. A giant water bug dad can carry up to 150 eggs on him! When talking about heroic fathers, few can match the Burchell’s sandgrouse. The brave sandgrouse daddies take on a crucial mission; these frequent flyers make long daily trips to watering holes, sometimes traveling over 160 kilometers, to fill up for their families. After the little ones have their drink, the daddies immediately take sand baths, to remove the strong scent of wet feathers to deter predators. In this series, we have introduced some extraordinary paternal parenting skills in the animal kingdom, which make for a wonderful dedication to all fathers, be they human or animal.

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 1 of 2

00:15:26

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 1 of 2

Being a father is one of the toughest jobs in the world, and their love is often underrated. It takes a tremendous amount of work and caring to be a good dad for both humans and animals alike. In this two-part program, I will introduce some of the greatest animal papas I know of, who demonstrate the essence of fatherhood through their dedication and sacrifices for their young. The first great fathers in the animal kingdom to discuss are the red fox dads. In March, when the babies are born, the father shares the burden of raising the new arrivals. While the mother stays in the den to nurse and care for the babies, he will bring her food every four to six hours. When the cubs start coming out of their abode to explore the world, dad will play as well as groom and lick them to show his affection. Once the young foxes grow bigger, he stops delivering food to them. This is daddy’s tough love, even though it’s hard for him to do. He hides food nearby, and covers it with twigs and leaves, to train his young cubs to forage it for themselves. Eventually, dad begins to take his offspring on trips to teach them the survival skills needed for life. As you can see, dad red foxes love their little ones as much as their mothers. What attentive and indulgent fathers they are! Male seahorses, and male pipefish and seadragons who are close relatives, are the most well-known and extraordinary fathers of the animal kingdom, as they are the only males that undergo pregnancy. A seahorse dad can carry up to 2,000 eggs for 2 to 4 weeks in his belly pouch and does similar things that a human mother does. This pouch operates very much the same as a human mom’s uterus, providing the embryos with nutrients and oxygen, removing their wastes, supplying antibacterial molecules, and regulating the blood flow, salinity, and temperature levels for the little ones. When the young seahorses are ready to be born, their father gives birth through energetically-costly muscular contractions, just like human mothers. As a dedicated and adorable caring father, seahorse dads truly deserve a cool daddy recognition!

Explore the Extraordinary World of the Animals with Yolaine de la Bigne (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

Today, she will highlight her belief that whether human beings can continue to exist on our planet will fundamentally depend on our animal friends. “We realize today that there is an incredible cooperation, even love, a solidarity between animals! Probably much stronger than between humans. I think the future belongs to the animals. The animals will save us because they’ve kept the ecological intelligence that we’ve lost.” Nature and biodiversity are important safety nets for humankind and we must do our best to protect the natural environment. Yolaine, who always walks her talk, launched environmentally-friendly fashion events as one of her endeavors to care for the planet. The Nat Party earned Yolaine de la Bigne the 2007 Femme en Or (Women in Gold) trophy, an honor recognizing successful French women, in the category of Environment/Quality of Life. Ms. de la Bigne firmly believes the most effective way to rescue our planetary home is for all to quit eating meat. Looking to the future, Yolaine embraces a beautiful vision of the relationship between humans and animals. Let us listen to her wishes and pray that they would be realized soon. “So, to come back to men and animals, there would be real solidarity. No more animal-based entertainment, that’s clear. No more zoos with cages, but only parks where animals are respected and we try to reproduce them in order to release them into the wild and repair a little bit of all the damage we’ve done. I’d love to have reserves where nature, plants and animals can finally live in peace. And then, the maddest, most fantastical dream, we’d be able to communicate with them.” We are grateful to Ms. Yolaine de la Bigne for her loving concern for our animal friends and sharing with us her knowledge so that we can better appreciate the wonderful world of the animals. Animals are simple of heart and intelligent. They have no prejudices and are willing to give all of their love generously to protect our planet and humankind. We must change the way we view them because they are not different from us. Like Ms. de la Bigne, we also ask that you always cherish and treat them well just as we would treat ourselves.

It is our honor to introduce Ms. de la Bigne to you in this two-part series. She is a passionate French animal advocate, journalist, and for 12 years was a presenter for a daily program aired by the French national radio network France Info. This thoughtful lady has authored many books, including “The Secrets of Animal Intelligence.” In 2016, she established an annual event called the Animal Summer Gathering, inviting scientists from various fields and people from all walks of life to present on topics relating to animal intelligence. Yolaine will share with us her in-depth understanding of the animals that she has gained over many years. “I had a media entity dedicated to the environment for 10 years called Néoplanéte, which had an online radio station, a free printed magazine and a website. Because I think the most important theme today is that without our planet, we won’t make it, and people don’t realize that.” “The horse is an extremely therapeutic animal. He sees you coming, by the way you walk, by the eyes you have, the way you are, the way you act; he already knows what you’re thinking. He already knows what emotional state you’re in.” “When a chick is born, they can count to five.” “The singing males then enter the scene, in tropical areas, they encircle masses of phytoplankton in suspension, and for several days, even weeks, they will sing songs which will act on the assembly of the amino acids that compose these proteins, modify their connections and thus create new richer proteins that will then allow suckling females to get an additional protein supply.”

The Wonderful World of Whales

00:17:52

The Wonderful World of Whales

We whales are mysterious beings and one of the oldest aquatic mammals in our world. Although we live in the oceans, 50 million years ago, our ancestors lived on land. Today, we are living almost everywhere in the world’s oceans, from the North to the South Pole. We have a lot of human-like features - we breathe air, have a little hair, are warm-blooded, and feed our babies with milk. There are two main families: baleen and toothed whales. Baleen whales are generally huge, especially the great blue whale, considered the biggest animal in the world. The biggest of the toothed whale family are my cousins, the sperm whales. They are known for having the largest brain in the world. Beluga whales, the only white-colored whales, thus also known as white whales, live in the Arctic Ocean. They live and migrate in pods. Another talent they have is being able to swim backward. More and more studies prove that whales are essential to the marine ecosphere and help maintain our earth’s health. We are some of the most intelligent and compassionate inhabitants of the ocean. We help to mitigate climate change by boosting the production of phytoplankton that absorb 40% of the CO2 in the air and release 50% of the oxygen found in our atmosphere.

The Amazing Love of Animal Mothers

00:13:06

The Amazing Love of Animal Mothers

No matter the species, mothers lovingly feed, zealously protect, and gently discipline their young. Nothing compares to the pure and selfless love of a mum for her babies. In today’s program, we will feature some heart-touching animal mothers’ stories, in honor of all the moms around our world. In mid-January 2020, a koala mum was found by Dr. Miller and firefighters clinging to a burned tree. She was tightly embracing her joey. The mom wouldn’t leave the spot and chose to stay there because her instincts urged her to protect her baby in this manner. The water makes the baby hesitate, and mom waits for him to move forward very understandingly. The park visitors witnessed how gentle the elephant mother was in encouraging the little one. She walked back and forth to reassure her baby, “I am here, It is safe to go.” Many times the mom crossed the stream and calmly waited for her calf to catch up. With his mother’s love and guidance, he managed to reach the other side!

Be Kind to Animals Week: Constant Care from Furry Angels, Part 2 of 2

00:17:03

Be Kind to Animals Week: Constant Care from Furry Angels, Part 2 of 2

On today's show, we will share insights from Supreme Master Ching Hai concerning the many ways in which animals benefit our world. “The animals come to this planet with a special role. Many of them are able to bring down divine power from Heaven, or love, just through their presence because they are very connected with the Divine at all times. Some, like horses and rabbits, can protect their human caregivers from negative influences, or boost them with good health, good luck, even material fortune, joy, or spiritual upliftment. They watch out for us quietly and humbly send blessings our way. Some of them are from higher levels of consciousness; they only came down in animals form to help humankind or other beings on Earth. Of course, animals also have very noble, vital roles in the physical realm. 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. The scientists have also proved that if you love the animals, or if you have a pet at home, you would be physically healthier and mentally happier.”

Be Kind to Animals Week: Constant Care from Furry Angels, Part 1 of 2

Be kind to Animals Week has been observed in the first full week of May every year since 1973. Although it started in the US, this a celebration of compassion that all of humanity can participate in. Our two-part program will feature Supreme Master Ching Hai’s wisdom about how animals bless humans, as well as exemplary stories about some of these incredible furry friends. Supreme Master Ching Hai has revealed the real purpose of animals’ existence on Earth. “They really come to help mankind. They know everything because they are very psychic; they are very more inside. They eat a little bit; they’re satisfied, it’s finished. They rely absolutely on the Divine for protection and food. So they’re always in contact with the Divine; they are truly angels, protectors of humans. So animals are truly a treasure for humans, yes, really precious gifts that God has bestowed upon us so that we can feel a little bit happier in this lifetime.” When God created us animals, Hes gave human beings their best friends. In return for a little affection and care, we secretly radiate blessings of wellness, happiness, and unconditional love.

Secrets of Longevity in Animals, Part 2 of 2

Secrets of Longevity in Animals, Part 2 of 2

In today’s show, we will discuss four animals that are also extraordinary in terms of their ability to survive. They are also known as water bears, which comes from the way they walk. Aside from their tiny size and ubiquity, what stands out about tardigrades is their durability. The physiological response that enables tardigrades to be so tough is called cryptobiosis. It is a reversible suspension of metabolism that is achieved by different means, depending on the circumstances. A hundred years seems like a long time, but it is a blip in the life of the glass sponge. Glass sponges are sea sponges, but they’re different from other sponges and how their bodies are built. With a nod to the being’s regenerative ability, a very small freshwater invertebrate was given the same name. Biologists have discovered that hydras have an endless supply of three types of stem cells. These cells are biological raw materials, capable of continuous division and differentiation into any type of cell needed. Turritopsis dohrnii is a species of small jellyfish. When threatened by environmental stress or injured, they can revert to their infancy and start over again. They undergo a process called cellular transdifferentiation by which one type of cell is converted into another.

Secrets of Longevity in Animals, Part 1 of 2

In this two-part program, we will showcase some of the species that live the longest. They are blessed with what is called “biological immortality.” We lobsters are one of those species! Researchers believe that the secret our longevity is an enzyme called telomerase. It protects the ends of chromosomes from shortening and losing some Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) when cells divide. Another species that exhibits “biological immortality” is the naked mole rat. Aside from their defenses against cancer, naked mole rats have two ways to keep their bodies young. Number one, they can withstand high amounts of oxidative stress. Number two, they have high levels of chaperone proteins that stabilize the correct folding of other proteins. As far as we know, Greenland sharks have the longest lifespan of any vertebrate species on the planet. One possible explanation is their extremely slow metabolic rate. Giant tortoises are world-renowned for their long lives. The scientists noted that compared to the mammals, the tortoises had more immune system-protecting gene copies - 12 to be exact, while the mammals only had one. These genes assist the body in neutralizing infections.

The Diverse and Adaptable Tree-Climbing Crabs

00:12:44

The Diverse and Adaptable Tree-Climbing Crabs

We crabs come in all different sizes and colors, with other diverse characteristics, and have been known to survive in all sorts of living environments. Crabs that climb trees are so diverse it would probably take humans years and years to discover us all. The coconut crab is classified by your scientists as a hermit crab and is the largest land-living and tree-climbing crab in the world. We usually live in sand burrows we dig ourselves. Normally, our lifespan is between 30 and 60 years. We are able to climb up as high as 6 meters quite easily. Caribbean hermit crabs have a lot in common with coconut crabs. For example, they live on land and females go to the ocean to lay eggs. Another kind of tree-climbing crab is the one that lives in mangroves. Mangroves are the perfect environment for such crabs to live in and develop. One common characteristic shared between all tree-climbing crabs in mangrove areas is that they do not live far from the sea. We tree-climbing crabs truly cherish our lives and plea with humans to have compassion, never eat us or other animals, and protect our habitats.

Quokka – The World’s Happiest Animal

00:11:53

Quokka – The World’s Happiest Animal

With our round cheeks and wide smiles, we quokkas have been dubbed one of the cutest animals on our planet. We are covered with short, very course and thick, grizzled brown fur with lighter parts underneath. Our relatively short tail has very little hair, but our feet are very hairy! On our cute and lovely face are a big, black nose, a pleasing mouth, and a pair of charming black eyes. In 2013, quokkas were given the title of “The Happiest Animal in the World” by American news website HuffPost.Com, because to humans, we always seem to be smiling. Our cutest chubby-cheeked smile can range from a tiny beam to a toothy grin. It is not that the structure of our mouth or jaw makes us have to smile. It is our cheerful nature. Our biggest threat is deforestation, which reduces our habitat ranges and food sources. Climate change, which affects the vegetation and rainfall, is also a threat to us. We urgently call for global action to stop the destruction of natural habitats and the adoption by humans of the sustainable vegan lifestyle.

Slow Lorises: The Shy Ones

00:14:02

Slow Lorises: The Shy Ones

We are nocturnal and spend most of our time in the trees. We walk on all four limbs, slowly and silently. If we are spotted, we hide our face under our arms or stay still like a statue on the branches. That's why the Indonesian people named us malu malu, or the shy ones. The most prominent feature of us slow lorises is our big round eyes that point forward, providing excellent binocular vision and depth perception. We also have an excellent sense of smell. We are the only venomous primate in the world. We are predominantly solitary. In other words, we like our company. We have “grooming claws” to comb our dense fur and our loved ones. Like other animals, grooming is a way we interact with one another. We emit different sounds and each one has its own meaning. We slow lorises are on the brink of extinction due to the illegal pet trade and habitat loss. I would like to ask you this: please do not take us out of the wilderness, and please help protect us and save our beautiful home.

One of our distinguishing characteristics is a tuft of brown hair that grows from the base of our horns to our forehead. Then we have what looks like a white letter X across the bridge of our nose and around our eyes. We addax have a stocky build, similar to horses. Our diet is 100% plant-based. Although males are dominant in many species, we have the highest regard for our females. But due to habitat loss and humans’ inconsiderate activities over the years, our population in the wild has been drastically reduced. Humans must understand the impact that their values and lifestyles have. Each person who changes to a plant-based diet generates a wave of positive and benevolent energy that touches all living beings on the planet. Supreme Master Ching Hai is a cherished champion of compassion for us all. She tirelessly conveys to the world’s citizens that killing and eating animals are acts of fundamental immorality.

The Elegant and Athletic Chamois

The Elegant and Athletic Chamois

I am Alvin, a vegan chamois from the magnificent Swiss AIps. Our distinctive features are a whitish head, black markings below the eyes, and a pair of hooked horns. Originally, we chose the rocky and rugged mountains as our habitat to avoid predators. This also explains why chamois became fast runners and high jumpers. By nature, we have very good eyesight and a keen sense of smell. In the wild, we normally have a life expectancy of 15 to 17 years. Nowadays, we are threatened by other kinds of human activity, as well as the climate crisis. Please allow me to point out that the underlying problem we face is human greed. For example, even though certain chamois subspecies are protected under the European Habitat Directive, that doesn’t stop some individuals from hunting illegally. And even though the United Nations has called for an urgent reduction in meat consumption - to address both the climate crisis and human health problems - some people still deny the facts and continue to eat animals.
