Animals at Las Vegas Zoo being moved to different locations
KTNV Las Vegas
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Thursday was moving day for nearly 200 animals at the Las Vegas Zoo after it closed down last week. U.S.
Andrea Fuller's insight:

I think that this article meaning is dumb. They have to move the animals because the mayor apparently should've stepped in. I think that by that comment should of stepped in, especially since they have to transfer all of the animals. If Las Vegas would've done something about it, they'd not have to go through losing jobs and moving animals around America.

Loss of digging mammals linked to ecosystem decline - The Guardian

The Guardian Loss of digging mammals linked to ecosystem decline The Guardian The trapping and killing of the animals by early settlers, in an attempt to protect crops from their digging, have been blamed for the declines, along with habitat loss...
Andrea Fuller's insight:

In areas around the world animals, like digging animals are dying. People are trapping and killing them. We need to make a law or something to keep those animals alive. If we didn't have these animals the ground wouldn't be as "organtic" because when they dig they mix all that stuff up. That helps fertilize the soil/keep the land healthy.

I agree because some of these animals people are killing aren't doing anything wrong with people but we just have to kill them. That's wrong and we need to change that. It is not fair to those animals who are just doing nothing wrong but then get killed for no reason!
Brent Van Der Wiel's comment, October 3, 2013 8:16 PM
These animals create a problem in terms of deciding to kill them or not. They do fertilize and soften the soil, but at the same time they do a lot of damage to crops and even building foundations. So do you kill them, or let them destroy your homes and farms?
Kolbie VanDusseldorp's comment, October 3, 2013 11:26 PM
Its a tuff call on wether they are better to keep or get rid of. They do good and bad at the same time. The only question is, do they do more of the good or more of the bad? its a hard question to answer.

"A lot of Arkansas wildlife, the animals that live here, need fire as part of their life cycle and need it to maintain open habitats," Simon said.
Andrea Fuller's insight:

I agree with this. I think once in a while we should burn woods to "restore" wildlife. It helps maintain the habitat. The fire helps the area out, with trees, grass, and wildflowers. After fires the area can be home to hundreds of flowers and vegatation, which helps the life cycle of animals.

NC Zoo's new polar bear habitat may have everything but bears - Charlotte Observer

If North Carolina can't get a polar bear for its exhibit, Jones said, it's possible the park could put another type of animal in the habitat until bears are available.
Andrea Fuller's insight:

We should do something to save polar bears. If we didn't have polar bears then, again, the cycle would be messed up. The people wanting polar bears in their zoo should pay close attention to them. In the article it said that one of polar bears died due to something wrong with their stomach. I think that zoo's should pay more attention to them considering that they are endangered. Also, they should have them mate so that more and more would be born. Maybe then the polar bear wouldn't be on the endangered list.

I agree. Polar bears were going extinct but we need to bring them back. They don't do anything bad to people so we need to save them. We need to watch polar bears more often so the don't go on the endangered list and and then we can have more and maybe even more in the zoo!
Kolbie VanDusseldorp's comment, October 3, 2013 11:28 PM
I believe we should do something to save them. There is a spot for everything in the ecosystem and one thing could change everything. I like this topic because this could end up a big deal if they go extinct.

Dog Therapy.
Andrea Fuller's insight:

I think it's smart that they are doing pet therapy. Dogs would be much nicer to others. They'd be learning manners and to obey their owners. I don't agree with the way the dogs have to pass a test to get therapy. I think that all dogs should have it if they need it.

We tend to assume time is the same for everyone, but according to research published in the journal Animal Behaviour, it has different speeds for different species.
Andrea Fuller's insight:

I think it's crazy that different animals/species have different "times." All animals are different from each other than what we originally knew. I also think it's a good way to advance in science or technology. Studying different animals/species could lead to more findings.

I agree with you that if we keep finding new things out about different animals then we can advance in technology. I think it's good that we are finding different species then we originally knew.
Brent Van Der Wiel's comment, October 3, 2013 8:18 PM
Finding out information like this can help in terms of developing new technology, and new military technologies. The more you find out about animals and their behaviors, the more we can adapt.

The Vital Role of Forests: Carbon, Rain and Food

The Vital Role of Forests: Carbon, Rain and Food | Wildlife | Scoop.it
Forests are much more than carbon sinks, they are vital to habitats, biodiversity, water and food. All life depends on healthy forests.

Via Flora Moon
Andrea Fuller's insight:

We need to stop using forests for our resources. The world could be killing off animals. If we don't have some of those animals everything would be messed up. Also, not only will it mess with animals, but it's messing with the water cycle. That's a huge problem because it could lead to flooding. Which that could put lots of animals in harm as well.

Andrea Fuller's insight:

Animals are getting smarter as we change habitats. They alter what they do with the traffic, or anything which is important that they do. Animals brains are getting smarter, maybe we won't kill them as easily. They also would be using smarter tectics along with that.
