The World Health Organization (WHO) has released its updated list of medically important antimicrobials. Published February 8, the WHO List of Medically Important Antimicrobials adds new categories on the basis of their importance in human medicine, risk of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), and the potential human health implications of inappropriate use in nonhuman sectors, particularly in animal agriculture.

10,000 Birds

Most weeks, I can blog about going somewhere a bit more exotic, and seeing something a bit more unusual for me. But this week, I had no car to drive, so I had to go on foot to the nature reserve on the far side of our neighborhood. This place, called Los Filtros Viejos (the Old Filters) because it used to be Morelia’s main water source, is actually a great place for birding.

Were the pandas poorly treated by Edinburgh zoo?

Reddit Animals

I remember reading about them as a huge hit but saw an article today saying that Tian Tian (the female) was recalled to China and retired because she developed a fear of people likely due to being on display for so long in the zoo. Also seems very cruel that the zoo tried to so many failed and forced artificial insemination procedures on her simply to try and make extra money from cubs as apparently they were paying a million dollars a year just in loan fees to display the pandas.

Examples of animal behavior specifically for humans?

Reddit Animals

Hi! I'm researching animal behaviors for a game I'm working on. When searching online there's a vast amount of information about how animals scare off predators and/or intimidate them, but I'm specifically interested in positive interactions (which has proven to be much harder to find) So, I have 2 questions for you all: Do you guys know of any examples where animals have specific behaviors that they do to gain attention from humans ?
