So proud of my wife @regina.q.w for reaching out to the #ringlingmuseum to openly discuss the Circus Museum Exhibit. She even got a response from the executive director!! (we didn’t think she would get a reply after a few days went by) By now everyone knows we have gone #PlantBased #fortheanimals — but we’ve always had this gut feeling that #animalentertainment & #animalenslavement is wrong. Teaching tricks in a humane way to a house pet is one thing — but breaking the spirit of an animal by using chains, #bullhooks, cages etc. should be outlawed. Animal entertainment has no place on this earth. I understand the need for sanctuaries - but let’s end the tourism traps that only cause suffering for our beautiful earthling friends.. “It is our duty to show all of our history, not just the pleasant aspects.” #emptythetanks #boycottthecircus #bananimalcircuses #bananimalcruelty #bananimaltesting #animalcruelty #animalwelfare #peta #voiceforthevoiceless

We are always overwhelmed by how easygoing our bears are. 🐻 When you think that all of them came from horrible conditions, it can be hard to imagine that they will ever forget their cruel past. But when we see videos like this, we have faith that the bears actually can forget their pasts and move on to live happy lives in our sanctuaries. ❤

Our walk consisted of one cat, two goats, three dogs, and four children. Man, our neighbors are so lucky! #notreally #blesstheirhearts #animalentertainment #countryliving #farmlife #hopewedontloseany #goldendoodle #goats

These summer days need to slow down a bit. ☀️

As some of you may remember, things didn't exactly go as planned for our recent trip to Bahamas. Now that we have gone, here is my #hotelreview & some #traveltips.

When booking a trip, do NOT book through the hotel. This created alot of the issues when the flights were cancelled & we were trying to find a solution. If we'd booked through WestJet, they would have taken accountability for the hotel.

Further, I have a travel visa with insurance so we declined the hotels. What I learned later is that your travel companion can only be your spouse or children. Even though the cancellation should have resulted in a full refund, we could only get half because I was going with a friend. Because of this, we rebooked with the credit we got from #AtlantisBahamas.

We were supposed to stay at Reef but now having been, I'm glad we rebooked at Royal. It's the most central & has an abundance of restaurants. When we rebooked, Reef spiked in cost. Royal kept us within the credit & came with $400 for food/bev.

I'm sure we could've kept our food costs down, but going to some of the nice restaurants was part of the experience. With everything in US dollars, it's extra expensive for us Canadians however. A yogurt parfait was $8 US & the average alcoholic drink is $12-15 US+. Even with $400 in credits, we spent $1,200 Canadian on food. On top of the of hotel/flight, this adds up.

The hotel grounds, especially the lobby at The Royal, is majestic. I can see why it's so popular. We also loved the waterpark in addition to the beach & pools.

While the aquarium is stunning, I felt bad for the huge manta rays. Its way too small for them. What I felt worse about however is dolphin cay. I thought the dolphins may have been in a sea pen, but it's a small manmade exclosure. They say they were rescued during Hurricane Katrina but if they are rehabilitated, why haven't they been released? They also promote tons of experiences with them so they are a huge money maker for the resort.

It was warm but cloudy our entire time in Nassau so our sunny day in Exuma was a highlight. If I ever go back, I'll be heading there. It was great to see #ParadiseIsland once but Exuma was more my speed 🌴.

Regrann from @stichtingspots - In China is het een ware attractie: Australische Greyhound's die moeten rennen voor hun leven voor Cheeta's. Ook wel: de "one-hundred-metre race show" between "African Cheetah and Australian Greyhound" for the title of "fastest in animal kingdom.

Het betreffende artikel dat hierover bericht (zie link onderaan deze post) geeft aan dat de honden in hele trieste omstandigheden leven. Het is ongelooflijk dat de voormalige eigenaren van deze Greyhound's hun dieren op deze manier afdanken. Ook de Cheeta's zullen zeker geen fijn leventje hebben, aangezien deze attractie als ware topsport wordt gezien, en bij topsport hoort zware training. Iets wat Cheeta's vast niet zomaar doen.

Dit park is beroemd voor zijn "Animal Olympics": een sport-event waarbij ze voorheen ook een beer en een aap op een fiets tegen elkaar lieten racen. En nee, dit liep niet goed af.

The life of a #circuselephant can be long and pitiful; taken at a young age from their mother, kept in isolation; trained in fear. Change is happening as people wake up to the tragic discrepancy between the intelligence and beauty of the elephant and the ways they are treated. Italy, Belgium, and Sweden have put #bans on the #animalentertainment industry but Spain has yet to catch up and more than 100 of these gentle giants remain in the circuses throughout Europe. And, if and when they are eventually set free, there’s nowhere for them to go. Now, one Belgian couple is building them a home. “We had a vision of creating a #haven for elephants to retire and to help the re-socialisation and rehabilitation of captive-kept elephants,” says former elephant keeper Tony Verhulst. “We are passionate about all #animals and #nature and we want to share that passion. And we are devoted to providing a place for #elephants to enjoy their old age.” Read about @elephant_haven_europe here: https://www.hownowmagazine.com/animals/2017/3/30/elephant-haven

By constructing a false habitat and continuing to breed and populate these habitats, zoos have created a skewed image of what the natural world is meant to be like and so they perpetuate the misconception that animals can be “okay” in captivity.

Animals like lions and elephants were either captured from the wild – or their parents were.
When elephants are taken, it takes a toll on their entire families that they leave behind. Of course, the reasoning told to the public is simple: elephants are endangered and accredited facilities are doing everything in their power to conserve the species.

Zoochosis is a term for animals that exhibit abnormal behavior brought on by confinement. Large zoos often spend millions of dollars and reconstruct exhibits to try and assimulate animals into a captivity, but they pale in comparison to the natural environment where animals can roam without restrictions and express natural behaviors. The fact is that these animals will always be wild at heart, and no amount of fake trees or square mileage of grassland will fool them into thinking a zoo is the same as being in their native habitat.
Zoos may succeed in fooling people into thinking their habitats are natural, but they cannot fool the animals.

Displaying wild animals behind bars in habitats that only remotely resemble their native habitat, in reality, does little to foster respect for wild animals.
In fact, it only perpetuates the idea that these animals are ours to view and observe.
The bottom line is that one thing and
one thing alone matters for zoos, and any other attraction that involves wild animals: profit.

Who else is excited for this fan favorite?!! Joe’s menagerie of birds and other animals will awe you, make you smile and make you laugh as they show you the stuff that animal actors are made of.
