McKee Project Expands Work into Guatemala and Other Latin American Countries

Critter News

I recently subscribed to their newsletter which comes out in both Spanish and English versions. This is a great group that I've spotlighted before. At the end of 2007, the World Society for the Protection of Animals selected the McKee Project to work on spay/neuter programs in Guatemala. Although they are best known for their work in Costa Rica, they also work in Mexico and Panama.

British Center Working On Animal Replacement in Research?

Critter News

I just signed up for the e-newsletter. We'll see. The group is called NC3E (National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research). The NC3Rs brings together stakeholders in the 3Rs in academia, industry, government and animal welfare organisations to facilitate the exchange of information and ideas, and the translation of research findings into practice that will benefit both animals and science.

Critter News

sales and arranging instead for their export, United Egg helped tighten domestic supply and drive up the price of eggs across the country, according to newsletters and other documents that United Egg sent to its members. The Justice Department has opened investigations. It's in the Wall Street Journal.

Canadian Council Says Mouse Pain Study Was Ethical

Critter News

But he said in the case, the pain was necessary and scientifically justified.However, Leslie Norins, the publisher of the newsletter that led to the council's investigation, questioned Mogil's research methods. I understand that, per the researcher's words, you have to create pain to study pain, but was this study really necessary? There's just something that sits in my gut and says this is wrong. From CBC News.

My Uneventful 3rd Blogiversary

Animal Person

A simple design with room for video, secure donations, a blog, capturing e-mail addresses, a twitterfall or something like it, social networking buttons, pdf newsletters, a calendar of events, volunteer information, lots of pictures and lots of space. I was hoping to say that I have blogged every day for three years as of today, but sadly, and very frustratingly, the past couple of days I have been otherwise occupied.

On Children's Books, Introverts & Films

Animal Person

If there's a local group that is in need of a skill that you have (grantwriting, newsletter writing, website development, photography), I'd imagine that's a possibility. First, Chris directed me to ePub Bud , which appears to be a timely and fantastic idea given my recent plea for more books for children about veganism. In addition, it looks like a great way to get your book into ePub form (and here 's how to read it) no matter what age your audience is.

In Defense of Wildlife Rehabilitation

10,000 Birds

The fisherman who rescues a merganser tangled in line, pierced with fishhooks, and brings it to a rehabber may write something in his next angler’s newsletter. The kids can’t get enough of this stuff. Who’s ever seen an x-ray?” I ask. Anyone ever broken a bone?” Hands shoot up. Here is an x-ray of a bird,” I say. “It’s It’s a really big bird. Any guesses?” A ghostly image appears on the screen. The kids’ eyes widen. Hands raise and wave.

The ABA’s 50th Anniversary and Information: From Scarce to Abundant

10,000 Birds

In that world, a mimeographed newsletter was a giant leap forward. The American Birding Association celebrates its fiftieth anniversary this year and one aspect of its celebration was a reprint of the first issue of the publication now known as Birding. What is apparent from the reprint, as well as other accounts of the ABA’s early years, is that the ABA was founded in large part to address information and communication shortcomings in the birding community.

Animal Ethics

I am attaching our “Blog Pawsitive” newsletter that will give you more information about why AnimalWork.org is so awesome.

I read it all the time. I especially liked your posting from Gardner Williams’ “The Moral Insignificance of the Total of All Value.”

Cyprus forests and avian inhabitants

10,000 Birds

The most recent BirdLife Cyprus newsletter had a feature article that was just too good to pass up comment and elaboration on: Our avian forest gems … (English names emphasized by me) Cyprus, although only 16% of its land mass is covered with forest, hosts more than 34 species of forest birds, 15 all-year residents, eight migratory breeders and 11 winter visitors.

Birders are Freeloaders

10,000 Birds

Baicich breaks it down in his Great Birding Projects newsletter: …expenditures for some important bird-watching items have gone up considerably since 2006. If you ever wonder why so many American birders leaven their love of nature with a little self-loathing, look no further than the National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation , which the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service conducts every five years or so.

Proposed Changes to the Duck Stamp Not Well Received

10,000 Birds

One of the distinguished members of the Task Force was Paul Baicich, founder of the Friends of the Migratory Bird/Duck Stamp, whose ideas from his January 2015 newsletter were actually incorporated into the Task Force Final Report. In the February 2015 issue of Paul’s Wingtips newsletter, the idea of adding an additional non-waterfowl bird to the Duck Stamp design was put forward.

Second Atlas of Breeding Birds in Pennsylvania: A Review by an Atlas Novice

10,000 Birds

I am always interested in the stories behind the making of the books I review, so I spent some time reading the newsletter, The PennsylAvian Monitor , published for volunteers during the 5-plus years of the atlas project. A breeding bird atlas is a special kind of book. For birders, it’s the extremely large book, shelved in a place where it can’t crush the field guides, used to research the history of a bird in their area.

Birds of the Indonesian Archipelago: Greater Sundas and Wallacea–A Field Guide Review

10,000 Birds

This information comes from the January 2017 issue of the HBW Alive Newsletter ; aside from a thank you in the Acknowledgements section, there is little information in the book itself on which of the 27 artists listed on the title page are responsible for which sections. I’ve never been to the Indonesian Archipelago, but I really like the birds there.
