The Diverse and Adaptable Tree-Climbing Crabs

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.

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.

Animals Rescuing Others: Heroes of Compassion

Delightful viewers, I am Alea, a vegan tuxedo cat from the beautiful and pristine Gimmelwald in the Alps of Switzerland. We animals have deep love for all beings. Animals will go to great lengths to aid a human or animal friend who is in danger. Homer, a black cat, sadly lost both of his eyes due to an eye infection when he was about two weeks old. Gwen Cooper of the United States adopted him and

The Marvelous Abilities of Birds, Part 1 of 2

00:14:49

The Marvelous Abilities of Birds, Part 1 of 2

There have been many stages in our evolution that contributed to our ability to fly. For example, we had to develop delicate wings, strong chest muscles, and several different kinds of feathers. Humans have long admired and envied our ability to fly. They have experimented and invented all kinds of means to duplicate what we do naturally in the sky. Since we birds are often far above the ground, we needed a number of adaptations to give us great eyesight. First, we have the largest eyes in the animal kingdom, relative to body size, which helps us to have very keen vision. From the outside, our eyes may appear small, but on the inside our eyes are so big that most of us cannot move them. Among warm-blooded animals, our ability to regenerate retinal neurons is outstanding. Scientists are trying to understand how it works, and believe there may be a way to unlock this ability in humans. If so, it would open the door to treatments for a wide variety of eye diseases.

Orangutans – The Rainforest’s Gardeners

00:13:58

Orangutans – The Rainforest’s Gardeners

The name “orangutan” is originally from the Malay and Indonesian word, “orang,” which means “person,” and “hutan,” that translates as “forest.” So, the name orangutan translates to “person of the forest.” We are considered closely related to humans, as we share 97% of human DNA. We are also considered a Great Ape, along with gorillas and chimpanzees. An orangutan’s lifespan is around 40 to 45 years in the wild. Orangutans are one of the most intelligent primates in the world, ranking even above chimpanzees and gorillas. Orangutans are well known as the “gardeners of the forests” as we help to shape and preserve the lush rainforest areas of Borneo and Sumatra. Being the largest arboreal animal, our fruit-eating diet and how we travel through the greenery makes us excellent seed dispersers. Sadly, orangutan populations are quickly diminishing. The main reason for this is oil palm tree cultivation! Our land is being rapidly cleared for oil palm tree plantations. Changing temperatures, wildfires, and rain are altering the areas where we search for food. Climate change also plays a large role in the destruction of the orangutan habitat.

Better Understanding Animals: Marie-Noëlle Baroni and Telepathic Animal Communicator Laila del Monte (vegetarian), Part 3 of 3

Better Understanding Animals: Marie-Noëlle Baroni and Telepathic Animal Communicator Laila del Monte (vegetarian), Part 3 of 3

Can different animal species communicate with each other? If so, how do they do it? “It’s specifically intangible for us humans because we can only communicate through our senses. But if I could explain it the best possible way, I would say that it is like a vibration that is emitted. And in this vibration, there is a whole language inside – a language of thoughts, a language of emotions, a language of being and a language of sensations within this vibration. Let me give an example. Once, my dog came to get me – I thought: ‘what does she want?’ And I followed her, and there was a turtledove that was injured. So I took the turtledove, I tried to save her, etc. And in the night, my dog came to wake me up. She came, she pulled me, she practically pulled me by the shirt, and she took me there – the turtledove was dead. How did she know? She was in the house. It’s a vibration that contains everything, and that we have a great deal of trouble picking up because we put language above all else. But it’s already a language, and it’s very intangible, but it’s something that is emitted between all animals. And that they perceive.” What hope is there for getting closer human-animal relationships in the future? Laila and Marie-Noëlle believe we must start with the children and bring them in contact with our animal friends. “It’s very, very important to find this language, to find this connection again. Because if we do not find it, we are not going to open up this compassion. And for me, it is the only way to save this planet.” “What I would like to propose is to open up the knowledge to children, of course. To open this knowledge, even a little bit, but in very small classes.” “They must have direct experience with animals. Because they don’t correlate what’s on their plate – that it’s an animal – they don’t correlate with the cruelty that’s going on. They cannot understand all that. They need to know; they have to be close to the animal to understand them, to feel them, and to be able to truly connect with the animal.”

Better Understanding Animals: Marie-Noëlle Baroni and Telepathic Animal Communicator Laila del Monte (vegetarian), Part 2 of 3

It will feature more excerpts from our interview with the gifted American communicator Ms. del Monte and Ms. Baroni, who rescues animals and coaches some of them for filmmakers who wish to feature them in their movies. Even though Laila has been involved with animals for more than 25 years, she finds they are still teaching her new things. “And to me, they’re really the same species. And we have the same way of looking at life. I find it wonderful to see all the similarities between animal relationships and human relationships.” Laila teaches people to communicate at the conscious level with animals. But for many of her students, outer appearances and preconceived ideas obstruct their perception of how aware animals actually are. “They are very sensitive to deep emotions. So if we have an explosion of joy or an expression of lightness inside us that changes… that makes our state change from one state to another, they recognize it. And indeed, as Marie-Noëlle says, they will reproduce the act that will make this explosion of energy that they felt. Because they feel deep emotions, like everything that would be sadness, resentment, joy – very deep emotions that we do not even show outwardly sometimes, they are very sensitive to that.” “The animal, really, I call it the hyper-present. He lives in a kind of hyper-present, but this hyper-present, there is no analysis of the past, or analysis of the future. The animal brings us back to this vital need, actually, which is to be in the present.” Laila says although humans may initially need to overcome a certain fear of emptiness, they are more attuned spiritually when they are able to be in the hyper-present. In fact, she believes that only by letting go of their individuality can people completely identify with another being.

3D Printing Technology: Working Wonders for Animals, Part 2 of 2

3D Printing Technology: Working Wonders for Animals, Part 2 of 2

In today’s program, I will introduce more touching stories about how 3D printing helps animals and the innovative 3D bioprinting technologies that could help hasten the end of the vile practice of animal testing in the future. In 2009, Seemore the green sea turtle was hit by a boat propeller in the Florida Keys. This hindered her ability to dive normally to find food in the wild and she could no longer live independently. After a computed tomography (CT) scan in July 2017, the team examined Seemore’s shell structure and the damage, and then selected the exo-shell design. The considerate project team attached the 3D printed prototypes to Seemore’s shell using Velcro during the testing process, so the prototypes could be easily removed, adjusted or reattached without moving Seemore out of her tank. Thanks to the team’s labor of love and Traner Knott’s loving care around the clock, Seemore can now happily dive like a normal turtle with her 3D printed backpack. Many new cosmetics, drugs, vaccines, and other products are often tested on animal models to determine their supposed efficacy and safety before human trials or being released into the market. There have been increasing protests against the unethical, inhumane and useless practice of animal testing in recent years, and compassionate scientists are responding with an eye-opening alternative - 3D bioprinting. Since the EU banned animal testing in cosmetics products in 2009, bioprinting human skin tissues for cosmetics testing has become the primary area of interest. In addition to skin tissues, other biocompatible human tissues can also be bioprinted. The organ-on-a-chip technology has the advantages of rapid response and precision control, hence researchers can test new medicine cheaper and quicker than animal models. On the other hand, the cool and creative 3D bioprinting technologies have great potential to save countless animal lives as researchers turn away from animal testing. May these life-saving technologies rapidly become more efficient and cheaper to benefit more animals, in God’s blessings.

American Bison: Supremely Self-Giving and Uniquely Resilient

00:15:48

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.

Hoatzin: The Enigmatic Bird

00:11:05

Hoatzin: The Enigmatic Bird

We hoatzins live in trees and shrubs among the swamps, tropical riverbanks, and mangroves around the Amazon and Orinoco rivers in South America. We are Guyana’s national bird and are honorably included in Guyana’s Coat of Arms. Interestingly, from an evolutionary standpoint, nobody really knows where we came from! We have an extraordinarily colorful appearance. With an un-feathered blue face and maroon eyes, our small head is topped with a cool, spiky 10-centimeter rufous crest, just like a punk rocker’s mohawk. Therefore, some locals call us “Punk Rock Birds.” Hoatzins are exclusively vegan, and along with the Owl Parrot, we are the only two bird species that primarily eat leaves. We also sometimes eat buds, flowers, and fruits as dessert. Foraging in the early morning and evening, we spend the rest of the day comfortably roosting. We have a very potent odor, and are also known as the stink or skunk bird of the marshes. We have a super-sized crop at the base of our throat to store and digest consumed leaves and fruits. This stinky smell is from the chemicals released during the fermentation process taking place in the crop, where bacteria slowly break down the fibrous leaves for us. The rumination process is just like a cow’s, so some people call us “flying cows.” What’s so special about our chicks? They have claws on their wings! While some other birds, such as chickens, kea parrots, and ostriches also have vestigial claws on their wings, we are the only living bird with functional ones that are important to our survival. These cool and handy wing claws are present and functional only when we are young. They disappear once we reach adulthood. The next time you join an Amazon River cruise, look for our spiky orange Mohawk, and listen for us!

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 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!

Animals Splashing into Summer Fun

00:14:12

Animals Splashing into Summer Fun

Summer is here in the Northern Hemisphere and we elephants love playing in the water and swimming! Lots of other kinds of animals do too. You may not realize it, but we can be quite nimble in the water! Because our bodies are so big, we have enough buoyancy to stay at the water’s surface and use our powerful legs to paddle. We sometimes utilize our trunks like a snorkel to breathe in deep water. So many dogs love to have fun with water! Cute canines are crazy about water slides. Did you know that some dogs surf? They enjoy riding the waves and exhibit great balance. Generally, cats are believed to strongly dislike water, but some breeds such as the Bengal cat, Maine Coon, Turkish Angora, Japanese Bobtail, American Bobtail, Manx, Norwegian Forest Cat, American Shorthair, and Turkish Van love to get wet. Actually, pigs are superb swimmers! Pig Beach, also known as Big Major Cay, is an uninhabited island located in Exuma, the Bahamas, where 20 pigs and piglets live, surrounded by the jade-colored ocean. The pigs are very sociable, and many tourists visit this unique island and swim with them. Our next water-loving friends are the sloths, which reside in the lush and tall trees of South and Central America. Considered one of the world's slowest mammals, they are clumsy walking on the ground due to their long claws, which are around 8-10 centimeters in length. Amazingly, sloths can slow their heart to one-third of its normal rate to hold their breath underwater for an astounding 40 minutes. Also from South America is the capybara, regarded as the largest living rodent in the world. They are semi-aquatic, which means that while they live on land, they spend a lot of time in the water. These friendly beings get along extremely well with other animal species. Most cockatoos and other kinds of parrots love to have a shower. The water will hydrate their feathers, soften dust and dirt, and keep their skin healthy. When possible, Supreme Master Ching Hai loves to spend time with Her adorable, adopted birds. Here is some footage recorded when She was with them in Florida, USA. The birds happily got sprayed to cool off!

Extraordinary African Ostriches

00:14:35

Extraordinary African Ostriches

Today, you will see what makes us ostriches such a unique and exquisite bird, and one to be treasured here on our loving planet. Our incredible eyesight is a great advantage for detecting anything suspicious. Although we can’t fly, we can sustain a running speed of over 50 kilometers or 30 miles per hour for more than an hour. We are the fastest bird on land and the speediest animal on two feet. We use our wings like a rudder, adjusting them to help us turn at high speeds, giving us a dainty running style that any ballerina would envy. Oregon State University, USA, has also seen the potential of our superior leg design and developed a stable, all-terrain bipedal robot. We lay the largest eggs in the world! In the Guinness Book of Records, the biggest recorded egg weighed 5 pounds and 11.36 ounces, or 2.6 kilograms. We can live for over 40 years, and are very adaptable, eating many types of seeds and plants, with the ability to travel long distances to forage for food.

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

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.

The Adorable American Pika

00:14:16

The Adorable American Pika

Hallo, My name is Lucas, and I’m a vegan American pika from Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada. There aren’t many other mammals in Canada or the US who can survive in mountains above the timberline the way we do. We are related to rabbits and hares, but we’re smaller. Our extraordinary hearing and eyesight allow us to be constantly aware of our surroundings and ready for unexpected events. Though maintaining separate homes, pikas like to live together as a group, so we can help protect each other. We are not picky eaters and enjoy a variety of plants, including different kinds of grass, sedge, bayberry, clover, thistle, and weeds. Some humans have begun to use our activity as an indicator of global warming in western North America. Other species that live in mountains can move up higher if the climate gets warmer. Pikas are already so close to the top that we would have nowhere to go. Please awaken your loving kindness, not only for American pikas, but for all of Earth’s inhabitants.

The Winter Sleep of Animals

00:17:48

The Winter Sleep of Animals

Winter is the coldest time of the year, when the days are shorter and the nights are longer. It is a season of rest, and a period to conserve, rather than expend, energy. So, what is hibernation? It is like a long, deep sleep for animals and a time. Animals prepare to enter this state by eating a lot during the summer and autumn seasons to store fat to last them throughout the winter. Did you know that a pregnant American black bear could give birth during hibernation? She does not even need to wake herself to take care of her cubs. Instead, she can nurse her babies for months from the stored fat she has on reserve. Did you know that some animals in hot climates also undergo a form of hibernation? This is called estivation. Supreme Master Ching Hai spoke about the spiritual purpose of hibernation for animals during an August 23, 2009 lecture given in France. “There are some spiritual reasons. You see, because every day, animals, they’re also busy looking for food and taking care of their family, and so during wintertime, they take advantage of the natural cycle and they go into hibernation; they sleep in winter to recover their spiritual strength, apart from other things.”

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

00:17:05

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.”

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.

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.
