  • Their mission may be listed as providing leadership and expertise to resolve human-wildlife conflicts, but did you know that Wildlife Services (a program under the US Department of Agriculture) kills millions of wild animals every year? 
From alligators to wolves and everything in between, animals are not the priority of WS.  Killing methods include poisoning, traps, snares, shooting, and even cyanide bombs. 
Many of these animals (in particular the ones considered predators or the ones that compete for resources) are killed to benefit private interest groups such as hunting associations and ranchers (even when their animals are grazing in public lands!). We certainly do not approve of our tax dollars subsidizing ranchers and hunters – and in particular not at the expense of wildlife. 
And WS does not hide any of this.  You can find the information on their website.

  • #DYK that #toothdecay is one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in the United States? Dental decay can lead to pain and discoloration within your smile, as well as #toothloss if not treated in a timely manner. The earlier a cavity is detected, the more conservatively it can be treated. In some cases, a very early #cavity can be reversed! #CarolinaCommonsDentistry

  • Yesterday was #EarthDay and it got us thinking. #DYK: one of the biggest environmental choices we make is where we live? According to @redfinrealestate, the closer you live to places you go—like your job, the mall, and your favorite restaurant—the less of an impact you have on the environment.

Can you guess which cities scored best for affordability and sustainability? .

If you guessed Minneapolis, Chicago, and Philadelphia, you're spot on.

  • Ever wonder why birds spend so much time preening their feathers? It actually helps to keep them waterproof and is especially important for diving birds. This is because bird feathers have many tiny hooks and barbules that keep them in place. The ability of the plumage to repel water is because of this delicate structure of the feathers, which is maintained by the preening behavior, combined with secretions from the bird's preen gland.
.
A sick or debilitated bird is often unable to preen its feathers and will lose its waterproofing. As you can see in the photos, that is what happened to this red-breasted merganser (#19-1264) admitted last week with a cut on its neck. As the merganser recovers from its injury, it will preen its feathers more to restore its waterproofing. This behavior is encouraged through time in the tub each day and maintaining a clean enclosure.

#DYK Alma Thomas first wanted to become an architect? But there were few women architects at the time, and still today black women architects only account for less than 1% of the profession. Instead, she attended Howard University, becoming its first fine arts graduate in 1924.  That same year she began a more than 30 year career as a Washington, D.C., public school art teacher before her painting career took off. Teaching allowed her to support herself while pursuing her own painting🎨 part-time.
In 1972, in her 80s, she was the first African American woman to have a solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Thomas's work was known for her signature abstract and colorful work inspired by nature. From her window, she enjoyed watching the changing patterns that light created on her trees and flower garden 🌺, and her titles often reflect the influence of flowers and natural order. #SitesAndSounds #ArchitectureMonth #HiddenHerstory

  • #DYK: Our creams and balms aren’t based on milk. MooGoo’s products actually originated from a natural cream used in dairy farms to repair the skin on cow udders. Thanks for the visual, right?! But just imagine what it can do for your body and face...MooGoo’s Full Cream Moisturiser is the thickest and creamiest of the range. 
Sweet Almond Oil, Pasteurised Honey, Coconut Oil, Aloe etc. All the good stuff and a great, clean smell in one convenient cream.
