Mexican Gray Wolf - YouTube

A  Mexican gray #wolf eating breakfast. This is an endangered subspecies of wolf indigenous to the southwestern United States and Mexico.

Judy Kennedy's insight:

Looks like specieist views against wolves are having a revival of sorts so I thought I'd post an old video (2008) I did on the Mexican Gray Wolf.  While the video is old, the subject matter is not.  Unfortunately, this zoo is probably one of the only places most folks will ever get the chance to see one of these remarkable creatures.  It's going to take a change in heart to undo what we've done.  I believe it's happening -- slowly but surely...

Fig Beetle Blues - YouTube

This gorgeous fig beetle (Cotinus mutabilis) was rescued from flood waters during monsoon season and then safely released on to higher ground.
Judy Kennedy's insight:

A living replica of an ancient #Egyptian #symbol - the #scarab.  The scarab was a popular #fertility charm associated with a solar deity and a moon #goddess.  In any event, these #beetles are beautiful and have an important role in the #ecosystem - as does every living being.  I am reminded of something the famous naturalist John Muir said:  "When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it is hitched to everything in the Universe."  Enjoy the #FigBeetle #blues!

The science of being thankful

The science of being thankful | EARTHCOVE - a place for peaceful interplanetary & interspecies relations | Scoop.it
Gratitude can do wonders for the human brain, according to researchers at UC-Berkeley, as long as it doesn't fade away when Thanksgiving ends.
Judy Kennedy's insight:

The gurus, masters, yogis, counselors --etc. are all right.  As a friend of mine puts it, "Your #gratitude determines your altitude."

Letting Nature Do Her Thing: Passive Restoration | Patterns In Nature Blog | EARTHCOVE - a place for peaceful interplanetary & interspecies relations | Scoop.it
The recovery of the deciduous forests in the eastern United States after the abandonment of agriculture is a classic example of successful passive restoration.
Judy Kennedy's insight:

Makes perfect sense.  It's true -- the BLM and other land management agencies usually listen to those who scream the loudest, and that might not always be in the best interests of nature.  I know because I live right next to some of that land and have experienced first hand this stuggle. . .

The Ties That Bind Animals And Humans Alike

The Ties That Bind Animals And Humans Alike | EARTHCOVE - a place for peaceful interplanetary & interspecies relations | Scoop.it
It's not just us. Other animals, too, construct close social ties beyond the biological family.
Judy Kennedy's insight:

A duck showing signs of visibly mourning the loss of his non-related buddy and then dying shortly thereafter as described in this article gives me great pause and a realization that these ties are not random or irregular - they are indicative of that unifying force that everything is made of -- Spirit - Love - Awareness -- manifesting in all creatures great and small.  That makes #interspecies relations so fascinating and well worth more study.
