Alaska’s Migratory Birds Cope with Climate Change

I am interested in how the migratory birds react to climate change and I wonder if they can change their patterns and still raise their young. This site should be a place to stay informed on studies being conducted. 

Let me know if you find anything on this subject.

And it even occurs with people!

Like so many "wild" animals, rhinos are very loveable when treated kindly.

This lovely video of a baby rhino coming for a snuggle offers a real lapful.

Ruth, can't stop laughing over "sucking face. I wonder if there are mucous membranes at the end of a trunk? OK, I'm on the hunt. 

Q. Do elephants have mucous membranes at the end of a trunk?

A. "If you'd ever been touched by an elephant's trunk, you wouldn't need to ask that question! They certainly do have mucous membranes in their trunks, and copious amounts of mucus which gets all over anything they pick up or touch. Trust me, I know from personal experience!"
