Jo-Anne McArthur of @weanimals has a new book called 'Captive' coming out that looks amazing. If you haven't seen her book 'We Animals' it's a must own for anyone fighting for, caring for, or curious about the rights of animals. Her work is amazing ! I am donating a portion of my sales to @weanimals this month. Reposted photo of Jo-Anne 💕🐰

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)

I took this photo at a "humane", "family-run", "organic" farm. The CFIA shut it down and all the animals were euthanized. But before that, this place was certified and in operation. #thankgiving #turkey #weanimals

Day 119

When California quail eggs hatch, multiple couples will come together to raise their chicks together.

This species is not endangered, they are considered of least concern in the wild.

Day 118

Wild meerkats live in structured communities and are one of the most visibly cooperative species on Earth. Different members of family groups will take on the task of lookout, babysitter, forager, cooperative hunting, and tunnel building.
In captivity, these roles are rendered largely obsolete, with no need for defense or hunting and foraging. To stabilize captive groups in the absence of their normal social structure, zoos will often place the bedding of predators in the enclosure of meerkats to force them to bond over a potential threat.

Day 117

Kinkajous spend most of their time in the canopies of the tropical forests of Central and South America, using their prehensile (gripping) tails to swing, hang, and aid their balance. They rarely descend from the treetops, living in small social groups with their families.

Day 116

Many popular zoo animals are potentially dangerous to humans if they escape from their enclosures. Animal escapes happen regularly and more often than not, escaped animals are shot and killed rather than being sedated (numerous instances have been documented in the last few years alone). Human fascination with keeping wild animals close by does not protect these animals if they manage to break free from their cages.

DAY 113: HAPPY HUNGRY GOATS. These guys live in a sanctuary, where they are treated compassionately. Thanks to the heroic Jo-Anne McArthur of @weanimals for the photo, which hangs in my hallway and reminds me of all the good in the world.

114 days in and it's been eye-opening to follow along @ayearofcaptivity by @weanimals since Jan 1.

Animals are not here for our use or amusement. They deserve to be protected and free.

Day 114

Animals in captivity simply cannot be provided with stimulation, social groups, or space allowances similar to what most species would experience in the wild. For larger, complex animals like non-human primates, this task is all but impossible, leaving animals to inevitably experience boredom, frustration, loneliness and stress throughout their lives.

"How can we make films that will help change the world for animals?" Liz Marshall is a powerhouse filmmaker who has already achieved so much for animals and shows no signs of slowing down now.

Day 113

Elephants are pregnant for 18-22 months. As with most mammals, the bond between mothers and calves is strong and immediate. Calves nurse exclusively for around a year, and continue nursing until the age of 2 or 3.
In captivity, animals' family bonds are generally disregarded if animals are desired for breeding programs or for an exhibit at another facility.
