English 👇 私達の声が宮子に届いています！
昨日、宇都宮動物園で45年以上の間ネグレクトを受け続けている、ゾウの宮子に関する投稿が同園から投稿されました。そこには、「献身的な世話をしている飼育員を悪く言うのはやめて欲しい」と書かれていました。 ・宮子の飼育方法に関して：私達はこれからも宮子の飼育に関して受け入れられない生活環境の改善が見られない限り、継続して改善を訴え続けます。 ・飼育員に関して：動物園の何の投稿か、コメントか、ツイートかを参照にしているかは分かりませんが、私達は飼育員を責めたことは一度もありません。彼らは彼らの今ある状況の中、出来得る最大限の世話を宮子に施しています。
Our voices for Miyako are being heard!
The Utsunomiya Zoo, where solitary elephant Miyako has lived for over 45 years, posted yesterday on Facebook that people should stop talking badly about how Miyako is kept and the work of the zookeepers. • Re how she is kept: We will continue and must continue to speak out against the totally unacceptable enclosure in which Miyako lives. • Re the zookeepers: I don't know what posts/comments/Tweets the zoo is refering to but the zookeepers are not the ones to blame. They are doing the best they can for Miyako under the circumstances.
The zoo cannot take any legal action against facts and evidence. So if you haven’t yet sent your postcard to JAZA, please do so!

Forest elephant populations smaller than previously thought. “A new study conducted by an international research team suggests that the population of forest elephants is between 40-80% smaller than previously believed. The authors of the study stress the necessity for further research into forest elephant behaviour and, importantly, their population sizes.
Forest elephants (Loxodonta cyclotis) are found only in the rainforests of Central and West Africa and in 2010 were declared to be a distinct species separate from the more widespread African savannah elephant (Loxodonta Africana). Forest elephants tend to be shy and cryptic, and often inhabit relatively inaccessible areas and, as a result, their demographics and social behaviours are not as well-researched or understood as those of the other elephant species. Unlike savannah elephants that live in large herds of related females and their offspring, forest elephants are understood to be less social, occurring in groups of two or three related females.
The decline of forest elephants has been well-documented by several previous studies, including one which reported a loss of over 80% of the forest elephant population over a decade in north-eastern Gabon due mainly to habitat loss and poaching. This particular study focused on the Industrial Corridor linking Loango and Moukalaba-Doudou National Parks in Gabon, described as a “bastion” for forest elephants, estimated to contain around 10% of Africa’s forest elephants by a previous study (approximately 10,000). Researchers used a method known as genetic capture-recapture to assess the forest elephant population size of the Corridor. This involved collecting dung and analysing the DNA samples to build up a genetic database for each elephant, which in turn helped to prevent overcounting, as previous studies could not differentiate where one elephant had deposited more than one separate dung pile.” Source: Africa Geographic #elephants#savingelephants#animalsofig#conservation#wildlife
“Africa is all about surprises !!
In all my recent trips to Amboseli, I have known most of the large bull elephants by their names....Late.TIM, CRAIG, PRIMO, TOLSTOY...but to see such large new bull in the park is always an awesome surprise.
We were looking out for large elephants for two days in different parts of the park to no result. There is a remote place closer to the dry lake where I have been lucky often and we decided to head there in the morning. Kamau my KWS guide was not sure of this choice but I said lets take a chance.
At a distant horizon I spotted a big herd moving towards us and we spotted this huge nomad bull. There were no one around us and thus this was as exclusive encounter. I knew if I missed this opportunity, I would only myself to blame and not the situation.
For me proximity is everything and I love the quality of capture that you can get with a medium format camera and a with a standard lens and not a boring long telephoto.”
cage the elephant é uma banda tão boa e devia ser muito mais reconhecida

I really liked this book, but the cover does not do it justice. Jack and his mom are camping in Maine. When he wakes up in the morning, his mom is gone, taking the car with her. His mom has disappeared before, but now Jack is two states away from home! He doesn't want to ask for help, because that would mean he'd be taken away from his mom for good. After searching Mount Desert Island for her, he decides to make his way back to Boston on his own. He's very resourceful, and although it isn't easy, and lots of people end up looking for him, he does pretty well for himself. He has to make some decisions that aren't really the most ethical, but he does feel very guilty about them. Jack is pretty obsessed with elephants, which explains the cover and some of his actions. I would just rather see a cover more reflective of his journey, which is why I chose this background paper. #smallasanelephant#middlegradefiction#middlegradefiction#elephants#journey#mountdesertisland#mentalhealth#familyfiction
