Day 83

Mandrills live in stable social groups of dozens or hundreds of animals. Mothers and daughters have especially close bonds and have often been documented playing and foraging together as well as grooming each other.

INTE VÅRA ATT STÄNGA IN! 😥

Elefanten på bilden finns på en djurpark i Slovenien. Bilden, som var en del i den fotoutställning om europeiska djurparker som organisationen @bffoundation visade i EU-parlamentet den 11-13 oktober, är tagen av @weanimals (läs mer om hennes nya bok om djur i djurparker på länken i hennes profil)

We're in the South of France and we just saw an UK livestock truck drive by. In the South of France! We're sold a fantasy about what animal agriculture looks like. And we seem to forget that the commodity is sentient beings. All bacon starts and ends in a hell hole like this one.

Tomorrow, European MEPs have the chance to ban rabbit cages, currently used to confine hundreds of millions of rabbits on factory farms across the EU every year.

At this farm, cages stretched across the room, each crammed full of animals. Many of the rabbits were injured or visibly sick. This rabbit was partially paralyzed and had been left alone, even though she desperately needed care.

Please go to animalequality.net and take action to help end this suffering.

A Melbourne Pig Save vigil earlier this week. The pigs were curious right until the end. They sniffed and licked us. They accepted water. They sought hope. 
It's heartbreaking.

Day 82

Patagonian maras are monogamous, with mating pairs remaining together for life. In the wild, females will give birth once a year. In captivity, they can be forced to give birth up to four times every year.

Day 81

A zoo in Quebec recently announced that it would remove infant animals from their mothers 24 hours after birth in order to let the public interact with them. The zoo's owner compared the practice to removing children from abusive homes and placing them in foster care, insisting that it was for "the animals' own good." After receiving criticism, including from Canada’s Accredited Zoos and Aquariums organization, the zoo doubled down on the practice, saying that in the wild, many mothers abandon their offspring.
The public will be allowed to handle the animals when they are a few weeks old.

Day 80

Goeldi's Marmosets live in family troops. After they give birth, mothers will carry their babies for the first few weeks of their lives, when fathers will start to share the role, and gradually babies will be carried by all members of the troop until they are able to climb on their own.

Day 79

The educational value of zoos has been justifiably brought into question in recent years. Last week, the president of the Vancouver Aquarium was unable to answer questions regarding the natural behaviours of belugas, despite often citing education about these animals as the primary function of his facility.
The truth is that the result of a zoo visit for many individuals is little more than a social media post. Recent news stories have highlighted the deaths of several wild animals after they were repeatedly handled by people posing for photos.

Day 78

Sun bears are reclusive, nocturnal animals, spending much of their time hidden away in trees. Due to their shy nature, conservationists have trouble making accurate population estimates, but there is concern for wild populations due to the prevalence of females being killed so that their cubs can be sold as exotic pets or to roadside zoos.
