Repost @ayearofcaptivity: Day 149

Yesterday, an orangutan in Perth Zoo, Australia, was filmed climbing out of her enclosure to retrieve her five-year-old infant, who had fallen out of the enclosure. She then climbed up onto a visitor boardwalk before returning to her enclosure voluntarily.

Kalkoner är bland de hårdast avlade djuren i livsmedelsindustrin. De växer så snabbt att de inte längre kan para sig naturligt. Kalkoner föds upp för sitt kött, ca 400 000 kalkoner slaktas i Sverige varje år. Till påsk importeras också otaliga fjädrar från kalkoner uppfödda i exempelvis USA och Kina. Fjädrar som färgats i grälla färger och som du kanske inte ens tänker på att de kommer från ett levande djur.

Den här vackra kalkonen är fotad av Jo-Anne McArthur, We Animals. Djur är levande kännande individer med rätt till sina egna liv!

Each year, hundreds of millions of rabbits are factory farmed for their meat, fur, to have their bodies tested on, or to be sold as pets. We talk less about rabbits as a factory-farmed animal than other species, but the conditions for these animals are just as cruel as those faced by laying hens trapped in cages or breeding pigs kept in gestation crates.

The sheer scale of animal use industries is overwhelming, but every choice we make has a direct impact on animals. Choosing to eat more plant-based meals, to never wear fur, buy cruelty-free cosmetics, and to always adopt, are easy steps that everyone can take. No individual will solve this problem alone but we will never solve it as a society without individuals making compassionate choices.

This photo broke our hearts. 💔Repost via @weanimals: Young activists bearing witness to the opening day of the duck hunt in Victoria, Australia last week. Hunters held up dead birds, taunting protesters. Birds who fell out of reach were left to die or were collected by rescuers who attempted to save their lives or humanely euthanize them. It was an awful morning.
Go to animalsaustralia.org to learn more and take action.

De esta guisa está decorado el pabellón central de la Feria del Libro de Madrid.
El domingo 11 de junio Plaza y Valdés presenta en este pabellón la obra "We Animals", de Jo-Anne McArthur, una recopilación de fotografías que retratan las relaciones de explotación que establecemos con los animales, desde la ganadería industrial hasta la industria del entretenimiento.
Va a ser muy épico.

Day 148

A year ago, Western lowland gorilla Harambe was shot and killed in his enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. The debate surrounding the decision to kill him continues even today, but the reality is that no matter the circumstances, captive animals' lives are not their own. They are routinely euthanized for logistical expediency, killed to protect human lives, and kept in conditions that cause them to suffer.

Day 147

Instead of sending its eight performing tigers to a sanctuary, Ringling Bros. circus is seeking a permit to ship them to a circus in Germany, along with the other big cats the circus had been using.

Day 146

Reports that giraffe calf Tajiri, famous for his live streamed birth last month, died after he ran into a fence and broke his neck this week turned out to be false. However, in 2015, a three-month-old giraffe calf named Kipenzi died in this exact manner at the Dallas Zoo.

Baby animals boost zoos' attendance and profits, but the public's concern for their welfare after they leave infancy generally drops dramatically.

Keeping carnivores in captivity means feeding them other animals. More animals whose lives and deaths are controlled by humans.

Day 144

Last July, the 140-year-old Buenos Aires zoo closed its door for good, promising to move its more than 1,000 animals to sanctuaries. A year on, however, most of the animals remain in their enclosures, waiting for officials to make arrangements to relocate them.

Since it is strategically hidden from the masses, I highly admire people who bring to light the dire truths and heart-wrenching agony animals are forced to endure within the world of animal exploitation. It is important that people know and actually see the immense suffering their choice in "food," fashion, and entertainment cause the animals whose faces they'd never see.
Have you heard the cries and frightening clatter that goes on in cages of experimental labs? Or the smell of death right before slaughter as you and a cow, chicken, pig, or rabbit witnesses the blood pouring out of bodies?
Well, Jo-Anne McArthur has. You can see the images she shot in her first book, @WeAnimals
And yesterday, I wanted HER to see BEAUTY and feel fresh air and sounds of nature. So what better than an #eightmilehike while she's in town. (She was the keynote speaker at this past Saturday's @animallegaldefensefund #AnimalLawSymposium.) I loved the #love @LangstonTheVeganDog and @BraddockTheVeganDog poured on Jo as soon as she entered the car on our way to the mountain.
Safe travels and thank you for such great quality time.🍃 #joannemcarthur #weanimals #photographer #

Day 143

On Saturday, a Commerson's dolphin at SeaWorld Orlando gave birth to a calf who died shortly afterwards. The pregnancy was not planned; the dolphin, named Ringer, who was born in captivity and had previously had four unsuccessful pregnancies, was on birth control prior to conceiving.

She and three other Commerson's dolphins live in a tank with a clear water-slide running through it.

Day 142
-
Notorious Ontario park Marineland opened for its 56th season over the weekend. A crowd of protestors stood out the front of the park, reminding visitors of the facility's poor animal welfare record.
-
Marineland recently opted out of the Canadian Association of Zoos and Aquariums (CAZA) organization, a month before its re-accreditation process was to begin, citing upcoming renovations that would not "accomplish the mutual goals of Marineland and CAZA at this time period."

Day 141

Today, after decades of protest over the treatment of animals, Ringling Brothers circus will perform its last show. Unrelenting activist campaigns have been cited as a major cause of its demise. All around the world, people are speaking out for animals kept needlessly in acts and exhibits purely for human entertainment, and these campaigns are working.

Day 140

A Spanish circus just announced that it is retiring its two male lions to sanctuaries and has guaranteed that it will not seek to replace them. Some zoos and circuses around the world are starting to make this choice as they see visitors turning away from acts and exhibits that are clearly bad for the welfare of the animals.

Day 139

Many zoos around the world offer "up close and personal" encounters with animals for an additional cost. At the Adelaide Zoo in Australia, visitors can pay $40 for a 15-minute visit and feeding with the zoo's two hippos, Susie and Brutus. Up close visits often involve feeding the animals according to a schedule with which they have become accustomed.

Day 138

Sun bear populations are decreasing in the wild due to habitat loss, the exotic pet and roadside zoo industries, and because farmers will often kill them to stop them from eating palm, banana, and coconut crops.
-
Rather than contributing to conservation or education efforts, roadside zoos actively hamper both through the ways they acquire, treat, and house animals.

Day 137

On land, ostriches can run faster than any other bird, reaching speeds of up to 70 km per hour.

Around the world, these birds are farmed and hunted for their feathers, skin, and meat, and used for tourist rides.

Check out @ayearofcaptivity Day 134 this photo-a sad mockery... Orangutan mothers carry their babies for the first two years of life. After that, the two commonly hold hands as they climb through tree branches to find food. Babies nurse for around eight years, and will stay with their mothers for ten or more years.
-
In modern zoos, young animals are commonly taken from their mothers to be placed in other exhibits.
