My blogs over the years have covered the perils and forecasts of the many endangered species on this planet. In my post, “Why We Should Be Concerned About The Sixth Mass Extinction?” I reported on the current ‘extinction event’ that is happening in our lifetimes. Think about that! There have only been five periods of heightened animal extinction since the dawn of time, and the most current one is happening right under our noses.
In a few of my past posts, I reported on microchipping dogs and its importance in locating lost pets, particularly during inclement weather such as hurricanes. Of recent date, the application of microchipping has expanded to include some of our other most loved pets. For instance, with parrots, like dogs, this procedure is a lot safer than the standard, traditional leg bands.
Here we have a pair of African Penguins. Every October we celebrate African Penguin Awareness Day. This year it was on October 8th. These penguins are also known as black-footed penguins or jackass penguins.
