If you love animals, you will love these unusual, adorable, animal
from all over the world, most of them hand-crafted. Some may be your
pets; others, animals you admire from afar. But I suspect that if you
choose these to decorate your tree or to adorn other home holiday
won’t want to put them away until next year. So, start thinking about
places to hang them. These make unique gifts too!
A few years ago I was out deep-sea fishing with a buddy. We caught nothing, but we were trailed by a hammerhead shark for several miles. The thing was longer than the boat was wide. Scary. Where were the dolphins then?
A proposal submitted jointly by the United States and New Zealand to the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources earlier this month has failed to pass. The proposal would have greatly limited fishing in the Ross Sea, home to wildlife including penguins and seals. Supporters had argued for the creation of a sanctuary there for both scientific and conservationist reasons, but other members of the commission had different matters at stake.
The New York Aquarium at Coney Island was amongst the many businesses threatened when Hurricane Sandy caused ocean waters to surge last week. With the facility's power out and its life-support systems damaged, the fates of thousands of resident fish, mammals, birds and reptiles hung in the balance. Now, thanks to heroes inside and out of the aquarium, life in the (enormous) fish bowl is finally on its way back to normal.
