Our little cub is getting big. This is the same cub from June that was called Winnie. This little cub isn't so little anymore and is really starting to fill out for winter

De-horning of rhino is a controversial practice. Parks who employ it do so to protect the rhino from poaching, by removing the very thing that puts them in danger... But like so many of these issues, the answer is never that simple. Poaching happens under the cover of darkness so often the rhino is trapped unknowingly. In these instances they are usually still killed for the small amount of horn that is left, and some just so the poachers don’t unwittingly waste their efforts next time.
Rhino use their horns for fighting and the size of the horn is also an indicator of the most dominant male. Removing them therefore impacts them in so many other ways... which raises the question, is it the right thing to do.

According to National Geographic, a recent census shows that there are currently 52,000 nests of chinstrap penguins 🐧 🐧 — that is down from 85,000 nests in 2003. This decline is due to the loss of their primary food, krill 🦐, which feed on algae that grows under the sea ice. Krill populations are falling with increasing water temperature and commercial krill fishing.

The wild animals in Yosemite were all so calm. It was extraordinary to be in their presence. We must have stood for about half an hour quietly watching this deer as it made its way up from a nearby stream then wandered around a meadow eating and enjoying the sun ☀️🦌🌲
