Everyone should occasionally break the law

in some small and delightful way,
it’s good for the hygiene of the brain."

New species discovered in Suriname 

An armored catfish, a Pac-Man frog and a cowboy frog were some of the 1,300 species documented during a scientific survey conducted by Conservation International in southwest Suriname in 2010. Their finds included 46 potentially new species.

According to a press release, Conservation International’s Rapid Assessment Program traveled to three locations along the Kutari and Sipaliwini Rivers “in an effort to document the region’s poorly known biodiversity and help develop sustainable ecotourism opportunities for the local indigenous people.”

The findings from the expedition were published in the RAP Bulletin of Biological Assessment series, “A Rapid Biological Assessment of the Kwamalasamatu region, Southwestern Suriname.”

More species were discovered around the world this month, including the world’s tiniest vertebrate, found in New Guinea. Off the eastern coast of Australia, scientists encountered the world’s first hybrid shark.

A lovable Great Dane who suffered a condition that left her completely without eyes needs a new home.
The only catch is that the new owner would also have to take on her guide dog.  
Staff at a dog re-homing centre in Shropshire are issuing a plea to canine lovers who can foster both blind Lily and her best friend Maddison, also a Great Dane.
 
The pair have practically been joined at the hip for five years since vets were forced to remove both of Lily’s her eyes.
The six-year-old was only 18-months-old when she lost her sight after suffering from entropion. 
The condition had meant her eyelashes had grown into her eyeballs, which became so damaged that they had to be removed.
It was after this traumatic event that her special relationship with seven-year-old Maddison bloomed as the healthy pooch took poor Lily under her wing.
The best buddies lived together until their owners decided they couldn’t look after them any more, and they have both been waiting anxiously to be re-housed at the Dogs Trust centre in Shrewsbury, Shropshire since July.

OH MY GOD I NEED THESE DOGS :( I LIVE IN SHROPSHIRE GIVE THEM TO ME!!!

This is so sad, I would so home both of these dogs if I could <3

I WANT THEM :(
I want them more <3

Annie Dunning

The Pigeon Homeing Project

Annie Dunning made paintings of 45 particular urban pigeons.  The pigeon paintings start as a file of pigeons — people may “adopt” the pigeons, in which case she hand paints the pigeon at floor level in their home.  The “file” for that pigeon is then stamped with the word “home.”  She documents the pigeon within its new home.

The birds become part of the home, remaining there even if the owners of the home move away.  This reflects how homing pigeons are loyal to their roosting spot, not to any particular owner.

There is something about home and homelessness in this, I think.
