Let's start a new thread with somethig from Simon.
A long tailed macaque monkey adopts a kitten in the forests of Bali , Indonesia .
A young long tailed macaque monkey has been spotted in a forest protectively nuzzling and grooming a ginger kitten and making sure no harm came to it.
The extraordinary sight was captured by amateur photographer Anne Young while on holiday at the Monkey Forest Park, in the Ubud region of Bali, Indonesia .
During the remarkable moments the monkey would become agitated if Anne ventured too near to take pictures and at one point used a huge leaf to try and cover the kitten from view
The monkey was even wary of other macaques and would not allow other young males to get too close
Throughout the session the kitten enjoyed the attention being lavished on it by its protective carer and made no effort to leave
The reserve is inhabited by about 340 monkeys in four groups. It is considered sacred by locals and visited by about 10,000 tourists each month
It is not known how the cat came to be in the company of the macaques.
Amazing, great pictures. Thank you Simon and Val.

The live trade. Brace yourself for new video from Turkish slaughterhouses.
20 years I've been opposing the trade. My comment :
"As an Australian citizen I am ashamed to call myself "Australian".
Political cowardice, going for the votes of the cattle lobby and ignoring your moral responsibility.
A government without a moral compass is capable of doing anything. SHAME!"
So please don't call me Australian. "Citizen of the World" will do, or just nowhere in particular.
And thanks to Kathy C for the forward to me of the pics. As someone who is very involved with cats, I am fascinated by the way the monkey is holding the kitten in pic 4. Very few people know how to hold a cat properly.
Love the pictures of the cat and the macaques, thank you Val.
Action taken and awwww love the pics. Animals Rock
Development ravaged the turtle's natural habitat. Then came the rise of invasive species that challenged the turtles for food or, with some species, liked to dine on the turtles.

Have you noticed that whilst humans treat animals in an "inhumane " way, animals show what it is to be "human". (that is many humans like to believe that to be human is the pinnacle ).
You are so right Simon.... beautiful picture Thank you.
Thanks Simon -

A team from Chester Zoo will join conservationists in Malaysian Borneo later this year to help construct special "orangutan bridges". The structures are designed to allow the animals to move around in an area that has become fragmented by deforestation.

Utter nonsense. A tiger is a tiger. None should be exploited or forced to live this way, regardless of their "breeding".

Sign the "Don't Buy Wild" Pledge
The commercial trade in wild animals is a multi-billion dollar industry that threatens the survival of many species and results in the inhumane treatment of countless animals every year.
While shopping (including online) or traveling, you may come across items made from wild animal parts, or attractions that keep animals captive under inhumane conditions. Some places even sell wild animals as pets. Be aware of what you may find so that you will not contribute to the illegal wildlife trade, harm wildlife populations or patronize facilities where animals are suffering.
Please consider taking action on these issues as well:

Today is a very special day. Pilot Scott Messinger transported his 1000th, yes, you read that correctly, one thousand animals!
The economy could be a factor in this trend, but studies are finding that a recent increased awareness about farm animal issues is also likely to be a contributing factor.

In exactly what way is clubbing "humane"? If your conscience regarding the welfare of animals extends as far as how the public will perceive these actions, save yourself the trouble.Stop experimenting on animals.
