Release Morgan back into the wild

On the 23rd of June 2010, a young orca named Morgan was found swimming near the Netherlands with deteriorating health. The Dolfinarium Harderwijk got a permit to bring Morgan to a healthy state and release her, but unfortunately she was never released and is currently still held in captivity. I stumbled upon Morgan’s sad story […]






Ban the tiger trade in China

Thanks to a retweet I saw the other day, a petition from Tiger Time was brought to my attention and now I share it with you. Please sign this petition to help put an end to the tiger trade in China. I’ve written about the devastation that tigers suffer multiple times here on FLC and […]






Smile-worthy animal videos

I realized that it’s been a while since I shared a few adorable and/or interesting animal videos so here are a few I’ve watched and wanted more of the world to see: The first is of the happiest cow I’ve ever seen. I’m envious of him as I’d love to be doing the exact same […]






Remember those poor dogs in the Ukraine?

Well, do I have fabulous news for you! If you tried signing the “Stop the cruel killing of street dogs in Ukraine‏” petition not too long after I posted it, then you probably weren’t able to sign it and saw the message above‏ instead. This has been going on for years, my brother recently informed […]






Stop the cruel killing of street dogs in Ukraine‏

[UPDATE: Remember those poor dogs in the Ukraine?] In an effort to “rid the streets of [stray dogs] in time for the Euro 2012 soccer championships” in Ukraine, dogs are being poisoned to death. “Meat laced with poison is being left out for the animals to consume, resulting in their prolonged and agonizing deaths.” There […]






Life as a vegan

Yesterday marked two years of my being vegan! I knew it was coming up, but I didn’t realize what day it was until I checked my calendar today. I should have been paying better attention because then maybe I would have celebrated in some way by making a vegan cake or something equally delicious. Instead […]






Miciek

My beloved, adorable, amazing Miciek died today. He was very sick and died at home with my family, incidentally, while I was skyping with them. It was very unexpected for me, because I had hope that he would get better and the thought that he would die wouldn’t cross my mind. I already miss him […]






Sign to keep grizzly bears in Yellowstone safe

I was so pleased to see that the majority of you that voted in the poll said that you take action on these types of posts! I was thinking that only those who comment and maybe a handful of others signed, but seeing the results of the poll leaning mostly one way made me realize […]






Good news to brighten your day & give you hope

Oh, how I love sharing good news with all of you, especially when there’s so much of it that I need to share it all in one post. The days are getting away from me, but I couldn’t wait to share this information, especially since I’ve mentioned many of these issues and topics before, so […]






Giving never seemed so easy and fun

One of the projects that I’ve been working on for Ecorazzi is their completely new fast-paced philanthropy site called Microist. Microist funds non-profit organizations through donations that are divided among thirty days so that every organization in that thirty days receives an equal amount of funds. Every single day (starting on the 12th of September, […]
