Dance for the Rescues

http://www.dancefortherescues.org/

This is awesome.  Check it out!  They raise money/awareness for at-risk animals and it's just an exhilarating way of being fit, having fun, and raising funds! We should all try to do this near our neighborhood... It's a great effort :) Those who live near that area should definitely try to attend.

Training Animals - Guinea Pigs

video
Training animals doesn't have to be as complicated as making Sea World killer whales to front flips... Being a "trained pet" can be as simple as making a relationship with its owner, being potty trained, or learning hints to perceive that it's food time!  Animals can be very smart, and they can learn from right and wrong from how you react! (treat or no treats)

Here's a guinea pig we love...And I guess you could say she's "trained" to do gymnastics --- Well, that is ANYTHING for mint leaves! :)

American White-Tailed Deer

AMERICAN WHITE-TAILED DEER:
White-tailed deer, the smallest of North American deer, are herbivores, and are mainly found leisurely grazing on plants, fruits, nuts, and twigs. White-tailed deer are nocturnal and crepuscural. "White tailed" refers to the underside of a deer's tail, which it displays in fear of danger.  They use speed to outrun their predators, sprinting up to 30 mph and leaping as high as 10 feet, as far as 30 feet in a single bound.

FOR THOSE LIVING IN A FOREST ENVIRONMENT:
Isn't it just amusing to watch such adorable animals graze around your yard? Especially those little fawns with spots all over! AWWW, How cute! But......not exactly when they're eating those flowers you just bought for fifty bucks, right? But, these poor little animals are impoverished. Their forests were depleted, and now they have no food. Check out these websites to learn more about white-tailed deer in your environment. These links have information on what plants to buy for your home, and some ways you can help deer in your community!

Farley the panda

Farley, a red panda, lives in the San Diego Zoo. Watch this video to learn more! Red pandas like to eat bamboo, fruits, acorns, roots, and eggs. They are an endangered species, found only in the mountains of Nepal and central China, due to deforestation. Let's lend a paw, like these vets, to try to rescue such animals!

Pandas

Pandas are mammals. They are shy animals.
Pandas are an endangered species, and they only live in Asia now. Scientists have found out that there is a baby boom, and panda's might not be endangered anymore! Chinese are currently making bamboo forests, so that pandas can have a safer habbitat.
Pandas live in forests.
Their favorite food is bamboo because they eat about 30 pounds of it a day.
Other foods they eat are leaves, grass, and sometimes birds and rodents.
