It was great meeting with you at Synapse. I'd love to introduce you to the 59 lions, tigers and other wild cats who call Big Cat Rescue home, any time you are in the area. I wonder if there is some collaboration possible with your students? I'm looking for AR 3D modelers and though I can't pay a lot, we have 2.5 million Facebook fans and over 700,000 YouTube subscribers so we can offer new talent a huge platform. Our mission is to end the practice of keeping big cats in cages. Zoos claim people won't save what they don't love and that they won't love what they can't see. That thinking brought us to the precipice of extinction for most exotic cat species, so I think we need to find a new way for people to learn how amazing big cats are, why they are important to the survival of the forests, and thus save our own species. I've stockpiled many terra-bytes of 360 video of the cats on AWS and am adding to that all the time. I don't know anything about AR development; other than the fact that I know I need someone who does. Caryn asked if her students could work remotely, to which I responded: I think most of the work can be done remotely as any actual filming could only be done by my staff or regular volunteers, given the dangerous nature of the subjects. I just gave you a link to the footage I've been stockpiling and I have a lot more to add. I've made it all open to the public on AWS so you should be able to download whatever your students want to work on from there, if you decide to get involved. The Westfield Citrus Park Mall is thinking about giving us Sunglass Hut's space when they move to a bigger one. We will be able to have graphics on the exterior windows of the space and a television running our videos, just like we have now at the mall. This time we can also use the interior of the space. We are thinking of calling it the Free VR Zoo where everything you do there is free, because all wild cats should be. We are working on an augmented reality experience (see http://vidpicar.com/) and will have our VR goggles there so people can watch our 360 videos. I think it could legitimately be marketed as the first VR Zoo in the U.S. (China opened the very first VR zoo in January) even with the very limited AR experience of having our oversized cat posters come to life as people hold their phones in front of them. I bought the URL VR-Zoo.com in anticipation of this being something we could franchise across failing malls all over the U.S. Westfield is desperate for foot traffic, even though they are one of the newest and largest malls in Tampa. I don't know what I don't know, and that's where I'm hoping you come in. I know nothing about what is currently available, except that most of what I have found is pretty primitive when it comes to wildlife. I think there is much more we can do in VR and AR to engage people with wild cats in a way that zoos will adopt as a model going forward. There are 233 AZA zoos who are facing public scrutiny about the legitimacy of keeping apex predators captive, and they won't want a sanctuary to get out there ahead of them, so I really think this can create a big buzz and a lot of potential jobs for people who are on the leading edge of VR and AR creation. Thanks for considering this.

20 Year Plan 2005-2025 It is a working document that was last updated in 2013 so it's time to re evaluate where we are and how to get where we are going. I inaccurately predicted that by 2014 we would have passed the Big Cat Act. I originally thought we would have it introduced by 2010, but it was 5/21/2013 before we managed to get in introduced and my new prediction is that it will pass in the 2019-2020 session. Turns out I was way too optimistic about having Florida, the worst state in the union when it comes to big cat ownership, pass a law to ban private possession by 2009. The next worst state, Ohio, did pass such a law in 2012 and the third worst state, Texas, finally did require that owners register and be overseen by local authorities, but no one really does that. Howie has had the facts, for many years, to prove that legislators CAN pass a bill to ban private possession in Florida (despite the Florida Wildlife Commission's claim to the contrary) but we put it on a back burner because the federal ban will make that point moot. Recently Howie has been working more on the Florida constitution issue by engaging the Florida Bar Animal Section. My new prediction is that Florida will pass such a ban after the federal bill passes in the upcoming session, just to save face. I had predicted that the circus would meet with its demise in 2011, so I was off by 7 years if you consider Ringling's closure this year to be the death nell in the U.S. For the past several years similar bans have been passing in 40 other countries. I think by 2020 it will be gone everywhere. I thought we could end fur farming and trapping by 2007 with our campaign that focused on “Fur makes you smell bad and look fat.” The photo is me in 2005 protesting in front of Westshore Mall on Fur Free Friday (an annual November event). 2018 turned out to be the year that fashion turned its back on the barbaric use of fur and it became a shameful act of selfishness to wear fur. In some ways, I'm glad to have been wrong in my prophecies, because in 2005 I thought that by 2012 all wild cat species would be in such peril that they would all be on the IUCN Red List. I thought that the resultant protections for wild counterparts would result in such intensive inbreeding in zoos that they would not be able to breed and exhibit big cats by 2013 or any species of exotic cat by 2015. Where I was sadly wrong is that I thought people would be so much better educated by then that they wouldn't patronize zoos. Zoos have been around for 190 years under the auspices of furthering our education and concern for preserving habitat starting with London's Regent's Park in 1828. Zoo attendance had started to decline but lately is increasing. I'm not too concerned though because I think it's more a matter of zoos changing their business model from jail cells full of languishing wildlife to theme parks with roller coasters and rides to be playgrounds for children to run wild. I think zoos are uniquely positioned to make the most of 360, immersive, virtual reality and will transition from prisons to edu-tainment meccas. For big cats; I am going to predict that none will be displayed in zoos by 2023 and smaller cat species will no longer be held captive in zoos by 2025. Given my overly optimistic projections in 2005, where I thought exotic cats would no longer be held in private possession, zoos or circuses by 2015, I had reasoned that all of them in cages would have died out by 2025. Now I have to push that back a bit so here is my updated timeline: 2020 - Ban on private ownership results in most captive cats going into sanctuaries where they will die out by 2028. Fur farming and fur trapping will end because 2018 saw massive adoption of a NO FUR policy across most popular designers and brands, with some cities even passing bans. 2023 - Zoos ditch the last of their big cats to make space for more lucrative experiences on that valuable real estate. Those cats end up in sanctuaries where most will die out by 2031. Since there are currently about 800 big cats in AZA zoos and maybe another 1000 in non accredited zoos, there are plenty of sanctuaries who can manage the cast off cats. 2025 - Zoos ditch the last of their small cats to make space for more lucrative experiences on that valuable real estate. Those cats end up in sanctuaries where most will die out by 2033. Since small cats are not a big draw in zoos, I believe their numbers to only be about 1/3 of the big cat census. There are very, very few small cats in private possession and plenty of sanctuary space for them. Heck, Big Cat Rescue alone could probably take in all of the currently possessed for the rest of their lives. Hunting wasn't a topic I'd included in the original 20 year plan. Hunters and anglers combined are 3% of the population and although I couldn't find exact stats, I believe that hunters are only about 1% of our population. Recent reports based on hunting permits indicate a 1% net loss in hunters as fewer begin hunting and more stop hunting. What will cause those 3-3.5 million (mostly men) from killing for sport? Public opinion. As new fathers fail to introduce their children to the concept of killing animals for fun, it will die out within the next generation. I think sport hunting for cats will be a thing of the past by 2024. Yesterday Apple News listed their top 6 stories for the day and one was the public outcry at a hunter killing a cougar. We are on our way. But will it be in time to save them in the wild? At our current rate of poaching, tigers will be gone in the wild by 2024. Leopards will be gone by 2027 and lions will be gone by 2030. I could begin backdating from those inevitabilities with plans to change the outcome, but climate change may make that all pointless. Most scientist now concur that by 2030 we will already be experiencing the point of no return, with oceans dying, sea levels rising above coastal cities, and our food sources being wiped out due to the loss of bees, uncontrollable fires and droughts. The world has warmed more than one degree Celsius since the Industrial Revolution. The Paris climate agreement signed on Earth Day in 2016 hoped to restrict warming to two degrees. The odds of succeeding, according to a recent study based on current emissions trends, are one in 20. If by some miracle we are able to limit warming to two degrees, we will only have to negotiate the extinction of the world's tropical reefs, sea-level rise of several meters and the abandonment of the Persian Gulf. The climate scientist James Hansen has called two-degree warming “a prescription for long-term disaster.” Long-term disaster is now the best-case scenario. Three-degree warming is a prescription for short-term disaster: the loss of most coastal cities (Tampa). Four degrees: Europe in permanent drought; vast areas of China, India and Bangladesh claimed by desert; Polynesia swallowed by the sea; the Colorado River thinned to a trickle; the American Southwest largely uninhabitable. The prospect of a five-degree warming has prompted some of the world's leading climate scientists to warn of the end of human civilization. If human beings really were able to take the long view — to consider seriously the fate of civilization decades or centuries after our deaths — we would be forced to grapple with the transience of all we know and love in the great sweep of time. So we have trained ourselves, whether culturally or evolutionarily, to obsess over the present, worry about the medium term and cast the long term out of our minds, as we might spit out a poison. As Jim Hansen said, “From a technology and economics standpoint, it is still readily possible to stay under two degrees Celsius.” We can trust the technology and the economics. It's harder to trust human nature. Keeping the planet to two degrees of warming, let alone 1.5 degrees, would require transformative action. It will take more than good works and voluntary commitments; it will take a revolution. But in order to become a revolutionary, you need first to suffer. The earth is now as warm as it was before the last ice age, 115,000 years ago, when the seas were more than six meters higher than they are today. We can't just cut back on emissions to stop the race toward our own extinction. We have to extract more carbon dioxide from the air than we contribute to it. Stats from https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/08/01/magazine/climate-change-losing-earth.html I believe that people will save the tiger when they won't think about saving the planet. The two are intricately interlinked because healthy wild tiger populations can only happen where there are healthy forests and drinkable water. Some people may think I have a very limited focus and have mis spent my life protecting exotic cats when our planet may soon be uninhabitable, but I've always believed we have to save the tiger to save our own life support system.

This week we welcome back Jon Miot, Director of the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo. Who also happens to be married to Angie. Jon sits with us to discuss how zoos and conservation organizations are saving endangered species. Specifically, Jon talks about what Species Survival Plans are, what are stud books and how are these organizations breeding these animals. All critical to their survival as emergency populations to their wild counterparts. In some instances, these SSPs are the last effort to save a species that is extinct in the wild. These decisions are not as easy as it looks and takes incredible thought and coordination. An interesting discussion to say the least. You can learn more about the Association of Zoos and Aquariums SSP program by going HERE Another thank you to all our Patreon supporters. We now are hosting monthly Zoom meetings with them, answering questions and getting ideas on which species they want covered. You too can join for one cup of "good" coffee a month.

Steve Dale is joined by former Curator of Mammals at Lincoln Park Zoo Mark Rosenthal about the Zoo and Aquarium Video Archive. Mark discusses what influenced him to start this and why it is so important to conduct interviews with pioneers of the zoo and aquarium industry. To learn more and/or to watch archived content, […]
The predecessor to the FWC (the agency name has changed over the years) was established in 1942 by an amendment to the Florida Constitution which became current Article 4, Section 9. It originally gave the Commission power over “birds, game, fur bearing animals, and fresh water fish of the State of Florida.” In later amendments to the Constitution this phrase was changed to “wild animal life and fresh water aquatic life.” The FWC originally interpreted the 1942 language to give the agency power over captive wildlife in addition to Florida's native free wildlife. In 1960 their attempt to regulate captive animals ended up in the Florida Supreme court with Barrow v. Holland, 125 So.2d, 749, 751 (Fla 1960). The Court ruled that the amendment did NOT give FWC power of captive animals. As a result, the Legislature stepped in and passed currently numbered Florida Statutes §§ 379.303, 379.304, 379.3761, and 379.3762 to add regulatory authority over captive wildlife to the agency's powers. In 2007 in house counsel for FWC produced a memorandum arguing that FWC's powers over captive animals comes from BOTH the statutes and the Constitution. To the extent the power comes from the Constitution, their argument is that the agency's powers cannot be altered by the legislature except in the very limited way provided for in the Amendment, which states “The legislature may enact laws in aid of the commission, not inconsistent with this section.” The basis for this FWC position in the memo is that changes to the Amendment language since 1942 have rendered Barrow no longer applicable law and that references to the Constitutional powers in certain subsequent cases support this interpretation. An analysis of those changes in language in the amendments to the Constitution and of the cited cases by attorneys at Johnson, Pope, Bokor, Ruppel & Burns, LLP and concurred with by University of Florida Constitutional Law Professor Joe Little reveals that the FWC argument is flawed and that FWC's power over captive animals comes entirely from the statute, not at all from the Constitution (see https://www.jpfirm.com/news-resources/constitutional-authority-florida-legislature-ban-private-ownership-exotic-animals/ ). What the Legislature giveth, the Legislature can take away. Therefore it is clear that the Florida legislature has the authority to ban private ownership of big cats as other state legislatures have done. WHAT CAN FLORIDA LEARN FROM OTHER STATES AND WHAT SHOULD THE FLORIDA BAR RECOMMEND TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM? https://vimeo.com/222234998/ There are only four remaining states that have no laws regarding ownership of dangerous big cats. Until 2011 Ohio was one of those known for having a very large population of unregulated exotic animals. Then, in a horrible incident known as “the Zanesville massacre” that made national news, Terry Thompson, an exotic animal owner, intentionally released 56 dangerous animals including 18 tigers and 17 lions and then committed suicide. As dark approached law enforcement officials were forced to shoot to kill 49 of those animals. Subsequently Zanesville's Sheriff Lutz has become a strong advocate of national legislation to limit private possession of big cats (see his moving video at 4991058dae ) and the National Sheriffs' Association has endorsed a federal bill severely limiting ownership of big cats (Big Cat Public Safety Act, H.R 1818/S.2990). What renders almost all of the state laws largely ineffective is that they operate much like the Florida law that only prohibits owning the animals as pets. I.e. they exempt anyone who has a USDA license. This includes all of the roadside zoos who continue to keep these animals in conditions that are unnatural and cruel given what we know about how intelligent and sentient these animals are. The animals endure these conditions because, as described in detail above, trying to enforce regulations intended to protect the animals is simply not practical given the cost limitations associated with inspecting, investigating and prosecuting violators. Fortunately the trend in state law has been NOT to exempt USDA licensees, but instead to recognize that both animal welfare concerns and public safety concerns dictate banning ownership outside of (1) the major zoos accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, who operate under much higher animal welfare standards than the FWC or USDA standards, and (2) sanctuaries who are needed to care for the discarded or seized animals and do not add to the problem by breeding more cats. The trend toward not exempting all USDA licensees is evidenced in the laws in Washington State, Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia (although the latter grandfathered in past USDA license holders who keep their licenses in force). One logical provision common in these laws is a grandfather clause allowing current owners to keep their cats but prohibiting them from breeding or acquiring more. As a practical matter, sanctuaries have very limited capacity and there would be no place for confiscated cats to go if they were taken from all the private owners. The lifespan of these cats is 10-20 years depending on the conditions in which they are kept. Given the average age of the current big cat population, a law prohibiting further breeding outside the Species Survival Plans managed by the AZA zoos would result in most of the privately owned cats having passed on within a decade after the passage of a law. Awareness is rapidly growing that the often cited biblical reference to “dominion over animals” does not mean they are like inanimate objects subject to our whim to be used for entertainment or exploited for gain without concern for their natural needs. It means we have responsibility for them. Trying to regulate a large number of private owners is simply not practical. It is time for Florida, once a stronghold of inhumane roadside zoos, to catch up to the growing understanding in our society that these iconic animals do not belong in tiny cages for someone to exploit by charging the public to gawk at them, handle them, or swim with them. Florida should follow the lead of the more forward thinking states that have banned private ownership and breeding outside of the AZA zoos and sanctuaries while grandfathering in existing owners who then have years to transition out of their big cat exhibition activities. Howie is a genius! He wrote this for Marcia to present to the Animal Law Section so they can start the wheels moving to allow for a state ban on big cats in Florida.

As the song Collide states, even the best fall down sometimes. That was the situation in 2020-2021 when one of the premier zoological institutions in the world, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, stumbled as a result of poor judgment by a few in leadership. Stepping into the fray was long time Texas State Aquarium CEO Tom Schmid to answer the call to restore stakeholder trust in the organization. Tom describes his efforts to rebuild the institution's reputation and plans for future growth and reinvestment. He speaks frankly about the organization's loss of accreditation by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, which some have deemed unfair, even as it earned accreditation through the Zoological Association of America and the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums. And no conversation about the zoo's past, present or future can be complete without mention of the contributions by the one and only Jungle Jack Hanna. Animal Care Software KONG Zoo Zoo Logic Podcast
Ideas have consequences. Calvin Smith pulls back the current on some of the darkest periods in history in the new Answers in Genesis Canada production, "Freakshow." Human Zoos were erected and human beings were put on display. Black and aboriginal people were portrayed as missing links, instead of people made in God's image. Calvin documents the history of freakshows, human zoos, the holocaust before the holocaust, the eugenics ideology, and genocide. He also explores what it would look like if our culture embraced Creationism at large and covers how to be discerning. If you are not interested in learning the truth about history, then this series may not be for you. However, if you want to learn why our culture is the way it is today, tune in and listen with an open mind.

Officials from the National Parks and Wildlife Service have raised concerns at Dublin Zoo following their most recent inspection. They found medicines with no expiry dates, animals from social species being housed alone, an unclean water trough and inadequate ventilation. Is it time that we closed down zoos? Or are they important for education and animal conservation? Clare McKenna was joined on Lunchtime Live by listeners to discuss...
Paul Webb began his career at a famous zoo that specialized in captive breeding programs for rare species. After eight years left with the conviction that captive breeding has no role to play in the conservation of species or habitat. Worked for the ruling family of a Gulf State for many years, turning half the country into a wildlife reserve, and looking after the largest herd of Arabian Oryx in the world, which was by then extinct in the wild. Organized and funded numerous projects all over the world to preserve the rare flora and fauna and participated in field work to secure the habitat of numerous species. Produced a book on the wildlife and environment of the region for the ruling family. Spent four years in the remote and forbidden zones of the southern Maldives writing and producing a book on the environment for the President's Office of the Maldives. Now a full-time writer and researcher specializing in the conservation of habitat and wildlife, having recently published my latest work 'The Second Level of Extinction - Wildlife, Conservation and the Myth of Captive Breeding in Zoos' and am presently working on a volume about the Black-Footed ferret captive breeding and reintroduction scheme by the USFWS.'
Gürteltiere gelten vor allem in China als Delikatesse. Sie werden deshalb sehr oft geschmuggelt. Weil die Schuppentiere sehr sensibel sind, ist die Zucht sehr schwer. Weltweit am meisten Erfolg damit hat Taiwan. Jungtiere gehen von dort auch an Zoos in Deutschland.
Training free lofted birds of prey can be an incredibly enriching program for trainer and bird, but it can also lead to an unnecessarily protracted program that brings all parties a lot of stress. Bird of prey trainers that are interested in this type of training need to assess a number of environmental conditions, including their own skills and support system in their assessment prior to commencing a project such as this. This is because a lot of stress can be transmitted, either in over management of weight or in rehearsal of fear patterns while we plod on, footloose and fancy free of deadlines. We highlight two case studies of two very different birds we recently worked with free lofted, as well as discuss the costs and benefits of free loft training It's MemberFest at the Avian Behavior Lab this week! We have our special for premium annual memberships, a limited release of our sold-out mentorship program, behavior makeovers, and much more!

Being a registered Zoo or wildlife park in New Zealand doesn't automatically guarantee best practice for animal protection. Karen Fifield is the Chief Executive of Wellington Zoo and she was also recently apppointed Vice President of World Association of Zoos and Aquariums. WAZA is a global alliance whose members are dedicated to the care and conservation of animals and their habitats around the world. She says protecting wildlife is a key plank of being an accredited member of WAZA, and it ensures facilities are progressive and do work beyond breeding animals. Zoos and wildlife parks here have to meet Government guidelines and minimum standards around containment, but Ms Fifield says that's different to conservation and protection measures.

Spektakuläre Shows, niedliche Anblicke, ein vermeintlich begeistertes Publikum, traurige Tiere in Gefangenschaft. Sollten Tiere noch in Gefangenschaft gehalten werden, um Kunststücke vorzuführen oder angeschaut zu werden? Was ist mit Artenschutz und Zuchtprogrammen in Zoos, die dafür sorgen, dass gewisse Tierarten nicht aussterben? Sollten wir Menschen das weitermachen, sollte man der Natur freien Lauf lassen oder sind viele der Tiere überhaupt erst wegen des Menschen gefährdet? Wie geht es eigentlich all den Haustieren, die während Corona zur Ablenkung gekauft wurden? Ist es in Ordnung, Tiere zu domestizieren? Was ist überhaupt eine artgerechte Haltung?

Yes, it sounds strange. Yes, we like science. But hey! We're human! Superstitions sometimes arise even in aquariums and zoos. Whether generated from within or contending with existing cultural beliefs in other parts of the world, superstitions have a part to play in our institutional operations. www.patreon.com/aquatizoo firstname.lastname@example.org www.magicalvacationplanner.com/staff/lori-semple
The Entrance by Gerald Durrell Gerald Durrell was born in Jamshedpur which was then part of British India, in 1925 and died in St Hellier, Jersey in 1995, aged 70. This story, The Entrance was published in his collection The Picnic and Suchlike Pandemonium in 1979. This title was renamed The Picnic and Other Inimitable Stories though I suspect that someone who didn't understand the word pandemonium would struggle with inimitable too. But that's marketing for you. His family's life has been the subject of a popular TV series “My Family & Other Animals” taken from the title of one of his books. He was a prolific writer, usually of light, comic fiction and autobiography and a life-long animal lover who set up the Jersey Zoo. Those of you who read these notes will probably predict offended comments about animals being hurt in The Entrance and how zoos are bad. My only comments are: it's fiction. There were no animals, and; attitudes change over times. I don't think he set up a zoo because he was a wicked man who wanted to hurt animals. Zoos were uncontroversial once. Those who don't make comments on videos expressing their hurt and offence probably won't read the notes. Durrell's famous siblings is the author and poet Lawrence Durrell. In his early years, as his family were middle class and British, he had an Indian nurse called an ayah. He ascribes his lifelong love of animals to a visit to a zoo when he was small in India. The family moved to the Crystal Palace area of London (with its concrete dinosaurs) and he avoided going to school by pretending to be ill. In 1939 the family moved to Corfu, Grreece and Durrell began to build his menagerie. This period of his life was an inspiration of his many books. Because of the Second World War, the family moved back to England and he ended up working in an aquarium and a pet store. He was not medically fit to be a soldier but ended up working on a farm. After the war he went to work at Whipsnade Zoo. After that, he got a job collecting animals for zoos by visiting Africa and South America. He was known for treating his animals well, which caused him financial difficulties . He founded his own zoo in Jersey in 1959. The EntranceThe Entrance was recommended to me by Alison Waddell. It is a frame story and thus hearkens back to the classic ghost story tales which are often told as frames and often feature old, occult manuscripts. Gerald Durrell goes to meet his charming, slightly comic friends in Provence. They hand him a manuscript they found in Marseilles that belonged to a strange man called Dr Le Pitre. Dr Le Pitre is another layer to the story that seems quite unnecessary to me, but I might be missing something. The manuscript dated as March 16th 1901 features a lengthy set up of a Victorian (the old queen died on 22 January 1901, but her influence lingered a few months at least) antiquarian book dealer (very M R James) who is stalked by a strange foreigner on a foggy night in London (so far so trope, and I suspect that Durrell was doing this to play with the genre). He gets a mysterious warning from his friend about the family, but becomes great mates with this aristocratic frenchman. Ultimately we see that this was a grift and Durrell drops a few ominous sentences along the lines of “If I knew then what I know now”. “That was my gravest mistake” which sort of spoilt the surprise of the twist at the end. But it's full Gothic. Alone in an ancient chateau in terrible weather, cut off by snow with a lurking monster in the mirrors. Instead of strange old servitors he has some friendly animals. Again he can't help himself intruding the comic parrot and friendly cat and dog. The canaries don't get a speaking part. I wondered how such a monster kept such happy pets? In fact we have pea soup fog in London, thunder and lightning in Provence and heavy snow in Gorge du Tarn. Classic stuff. I am guessing that young Gideon resisted...
Dr. Evarest Maguo has been a veterinarian for over thirty years, and in 1997 he established his own veterinary practice and mobile clinic, along with his wife, Mrs. Evelyne. They are both experienced in agricultural services, environmental work, and the provision of veterinary care and animal welfare education. Evarest has been working as a vet since 1990 and holds a degree in Environmental Science and a Masters in Zoology. He is supported by his wife Evelyne, who has a certificate in agriculture and livestock and currently operates their agricultural and vet supply shop. They also have an on-site shelter that they use to house and treat a range of animals that require specific care. It is their end goal to re-home these animals to good homes. Their clinic and shelter are in Sekai, Arusha and they also offer a mobile clinic service in Arusha and nearby areas. Interview Answers: Ground nuts Yes, I was born in Dodoma, but I have been in Arusha for three-quarters of my life. I did my Veterinary training in Arusha as well. There are some other vets in Arusha, but they do not offer a mobile service. We are also very committed to improving animal welfare, whereas most vets in the area are not as passionate as us here at Elang'ata Agrovet. The tribe that I originate from in Dodoma is called the Go-go tribe and they are livestock keepers, and with my late brother also being a vet, I became very interested in animals from a young age. As I grew up, I entered a livestock/ agricultural secondary school to pursue my interest in animals. After school, I then went to vet college in Arusha, once I graduated, I was employed by the government in 1990 as an animal welfare inspector for several years. I then decided to retire, and start my own company in 1997, and so Elang'ata Agrovet was born! There are two areas to the vet, and mobile clinic and a stationary clinic. Mobile services are beneficial because I can take in my surroundings of the animal, and through this, I am able to gain a better understanding of why the animal may be ill or sick. Sometimes, it is obvious that people that take their animal to eh stationary vet sometimes do not tell the full truth, and so it is difficult to tell why the animal may be unwell. Participation by the whole family of a given client is important because I can educate more people, and more people become accountable for the animal's health at the same time. When funding opportunities are available, we also try to carry out vaccination clinics, outreach programmes, education programmes. What is it like being a vet in Tanzania – To be a vet here is challenging because sometimes you want to reach a lot of people, but you can be, and usually are incredibly restricted by the money made available. We get very little government funding which makes it difficult to provide a service. There is also very little awareness of animal welfare in Arusha and Tanzania, so even in the Police, for example, it is very difficult to regulate new animal welfare legislation. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one that knows! Again, some concepts of animal welfare are completely new to Tanzanians, re-homing for example – people are not educated in re-homing of animals and its benefits, so it makes it difficult to re-home dogs at the shelter. We treat a range of animals big and small! Day-to-day work usually includes chickens, donkeys, cows, cats and, dogs. I am prepared to answer a call for any animal! -We sometimes do joint vaccination programmes around the national parks here, including the Serengeti! We vaccinate animals around the national parks, which in turn decreases the transmission rate of diseases like rabies into safari animals. Everything! Surgeries such as neutering and spaying, amputation etc, vaccinations, diagnosis, pregnancies, artificial insemination and many more! Rehabilitation, continuous treatment, antibiotics etc. In Tanzania, we have a lack of even basic medical equipment that we need daily, not to mention the lack of state of art equipment. We have no x-ray or ultrasounds, which means we must diagnose every single case visually. There is also a lack of specific drugs for specific diseases. This means simple treatment, such as the use of antibiotics, is not as efficient and targeted as we would like. As mentioned, there is a lack of general funding and support from the government, which really is the cause of a lot of the issues we have here. There is also a lack of knowledge and education of animal welfare leading to a lack of care and poor animal welfare. This is where outreach and education funding can be so important. Country infrastructure can also make things difficult. There are some very difficult areas to access, and rising fuel costs certainly don't make things easy! Many locals also do not have the money to provide proper care for their animals, and I cannot afford to give out medical treatment for free, unfortunately. Question not quite understood – can you please elaborate? You must be prepared to work around the clock and be prepared to give up many things. You must be prepared to be called out for the mobile clinic, for example, I had to explain to my wife on my wedding day why I had to take the medical bag along with me! You must be ready to learn online, we are no longer at university, so you need to stay up to date with new equipment, new techniques etc. Being ready to take on a wide variety of animals We have an animal welfare trust fund called the Protection of Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). We aim to improve the lives of domestic, farm and working animals in Tanzania through education, advocacy, and on-ground clinics & workshops. On a given day, we can have several groups of volunteers and students coming to learn and gain experience in veterinary practice whilst also getting a cultural experience at our homestay too! We have recently joined the Workaway programme, so we can host up to six Workaway volunteers at a time. We provide accommodation and food in return for work at the shelter, and volunteers get the opportunity to see how we carry out surgeries and vaccination clinics etc. Spiced tea! But I also like to drink a pint of soured milk before bed! and my new volunteers have me hooked on Cadbury's hot chocolate!

Why does science in animal care matter? My bestie Barbara Heidenreich and I sit down - this time in person - for a conversation about what it actually means to be scientific in animal care and behavior. And why that's important. We talk about natural behavior, species differences, the constructional approach, and so much more. Resources for the Avian Behavior Lab (it's growing, people! We have big things on the horizon!) can be found on the link. You can check out Barbara's Animal Training Fundamentals Program, of which I am a proud member and affiliate, also here.
For the past 50 years, visitors to the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, D.C. have been able to observe giant pandas. It's one of the few places in the United States to see these black and white bears. For our latest episode we took a field trip to the zoo to visit the three pandas currently living there and answer panda questions with zookeeper Mariel Lally. We tackle: Why do animals live in the zoo? Why are pandas black and white? Do pandas hibernate? How can we save the pandas? And check out our social media pages for lots of pictures! Download our learning guides: PDF | Google Slide | Transcript Three pandas live at the National Zoo: adults Tian Tian and Mei Xiang and their cub, Xiao Qi Ji. Zookeepers are never in the same space as the pandas. Even though they are herbivores, pandas are still wild animals with sharp claws and big teeth, so it's important for people to stay safe. Researchers at the National Zoo have worked with colleagues in China on a breeding program for both captive and wild pandas. That research has helped pandas go from endangered to vulnerable. They're still at risk of extinction, but doing better than they were just a few decades ago. Pandas eat 100 pounds of bamboo per day! The National Zoo cuts bamboo from sites around the D.C. area, including at some local private homes. Researchers aren't sure why pandas are black and white, but the leading theory is that the white color provides camouflage in their snowy natural habitat and the black fur helps them blend in when they hide in shady bamboo forests. Panda cubs do have predators in the wild. Pandas do not hibernate, but they spend their time eating or sleeping. They have a period of deep sleep, similar to the torpor of reptiles. Keepers say they try not to wake sleeping pandas because they get very grumpy! (So the saying, “Never wake a sleeping bear” is especially true for pandas.) Zoo pandas get daily training to make their care easier. For example, they learn their names and they are taught to open their mouths and show a paw so they can more easily receive medical care. Zoos used to display animals primarily for human enjoyment. Now, most zoos focus on species conservation, research and educating the public about animal species.
