Obama Administration has taken the Grey Wolf population off of the endangered species list, making it legal to kill them. They places on the list in 1973 and now the Obama Administration thinks their population has risen to a healthy size, and describes the killing of these wolves as “wolf management”. Meaning they are justifying this killing this beautiful and majestic creature to “protect live stock” and control their population growth. There used to be over 400,000 grey wolves roaming the states. Now there is still less than 5,000. If this is considered a healthy recovery to the Obama Administration then they need to pay more attention to the science of observation.
Reasons why you should be angry about this and fight for the wolves:
Watch the video above.
Wolves restore and balance entire forest ecosystems. They are key predators to other species keeping the species populations in balance with in the forest. Wolves are very social and family oriented creatures who mate for life, and keep life long relationships with their packs. They are highly intelligent and very essential to the health of forest ecosystems across the entire continental U.S. But now they only thrive in the wild in Canada, some northern parts of Montana, and Yellowstone where they were reintroduced. Grey wolves once roamed the entire U.S.
Help fight for the survival of these essential and magnificent creatures of the forest and mountains.
Sign this petition to help protect these wolves and other vulnerable species. And Spread the word.
Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.
how the hell do you bend and braid a tree
Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together. Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together.
You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.
As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.
On that note! At the university (UBC) located in town, the Agriculture students were told by their teacher that a tree flipped upside down would die. So they took an excavator and flipped the tree upside down. And it’s still growing. But the branches are now the roots, and the roots are now these super gnarly looking branches. Be afraid.
But Vi, how can you mention that and NOT post a picture? D:
today bj novak did a reading/signing for his kids book in la so ofc i went bc as some of you know i brought a copy of bj’s book one more thing to the mindy project paleyfest this year and mindy crossed out bj’s name and signed it and i’ve been waiting for a chance for bj to see it
the reading was so cute he was talking to the kids and interacting w them it was rly adorable. oscar from the office was there w his family too and i petted his dog and busy phillips was there w her daughter too it was all so cute
and then at the signing he signed the kids book and then i handed him my book and he saw it and gave this exasperated look like OF COURSE MINDY so i told him i met mindy at paleyfest and she did this and he looked at me and was like “can i?” i was like sure you can do whatever you want it’s your book and he crossed out mindy’s name and signed his own i was literally dying inside. and then before i left he was like “would you put this on the internet?” i was like “yes i’ll tag you”
This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
