While we enjoyed the hot summer days with outdoor sports and barbeques we were even more aware of the beautiful environment we live in. It’s a time of year that reminds us that we share the land with animals (domestic and wild) and it’s our duty to take care of the land and the animals we share it with.
This is always the focus of our R.O.A.R. partners. Here is an update from some of our partners over the summer:
National Wildlife Federation’sAdopt a Wildlife Acre project focuses on bighorn sheep in addition to the bears and wolves its work is more commonly associated with. When domestic sheep come into contact with bighorn sheep, there is strong potential for disease transmission and die-offs of the bighorn population, so National Wildlife Federation negotiates with livestock producers to help reduce such disease transmission.
EQUUS Foundation and the United States Equestrian Federation recently inducted a pony named Tumbleweed (1982-2012) into the Horse Stars Hall of Fame. After an initial show career in the small pony hunters, Tumbles, as she was nicknamed, entered a lesson program in Connecticut. The thrived so much as a school horse that she was often used as a therapeutic horse for physical therapy patients.
Jane Goodall Institute recently transferred a Tchimpounga chimpanzee named Kudia to its lush island sactuary in the Republic of Congo, Tchindzoulou Island. It took six men to carry her into the forest, where she will now be able to make nests, sleep in trees, run on the damp ground, eat wild fruits, play, and generally enjoy her time in the island forest.
