The extraordinary gentleness of the adult male with his young dispels all the King Kong mythology.Dian Fossey Wildlife Sayings By Dian Fossey: The extraordinary gentleness of the adult male with his young dispels all the King Kong
Thirty minutes out, people," I said. "Where the fuck does she live, Jupiter?" asked Sloane. "Close," I said. "She's in a housing development out near the edge of the wildlife preserve. I guess she likes being close to nature." "Or she's cuckoo-bats," said Sloane. "That's a horrible commute. I'd be road-raging weekly." "That's why we don't let you drive," said Andy. "Henry, you going to light it up?" "No," I said. "No lights, no sirens. We do this quiet." "Because we're so subtle," said Sloane.Seanan McGuire Wildlife Sayings By Seanan McGuire: Thirty minutes out, people," I said. "Where the fuck does she live, Jupiter?" asked Sloane.
It's fun to think about plants not just as decorations but as functioning parts of our yard's ecosystem that attract wildlife to the garden. We have hummingbirds, tons of bees, and many monarch butterflies. The kids love it! Though we're very laissez-faire with the garden and never put chemicals on it or even water it much!Katherine Center Wildlife Sayings By Katherine Center: It's fun to think about plants not just as decorations but as functioning parts of
Beyond the harm to local wildlife, any chemicals we used in our garden might end up polluting our well, or run off the property. In a heavy rainstorm, this runoff may end up in nearby Beaver Creek, a tributary to the Brandywine Creek, which runs into the Delaware River, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean. These kinds of direct connections with the outside world exist in every garden, which is why I think we should always aim, in our gardening practices, to do the least harm and the greatest good.David L. Culp Wildlife Sayings By David L. Culp: Beyond the harm to local wildlife, any chemicals we used in our garden might end
A male frigate bird blows up a wild red pouch on his neck. He can keep it puffed up for hours. It is his way of impressing the girls.Julie Murphy Wildlife Sayings By Julie Murphy: A male frigate bird blows up a wild red pouch on his neck. He can
In terms of wilderness preservation, Alaska is the last frontier. This time, given one great final chance, let us strive to do it right. Not in our generation, nor ever again, will we have a land and wildlife opportunity approaching the scope and importance of this one.Mo Udall Wildlife Sayings By Mo Udall: In terms of wilderness preservation, Alaska is the last frontier. This time, given one great
Watching wildlife was soothing, and it taught me patience and the profound pleasure of being still.Claire Karssiens Wildlife Sayings By Claire Karssiens: Watching wildlife was soothing, and it taught me patience and the profound pleasure of being
I had travelled pretty widely around the world even before then, so I knew where to go to film wildlife.Jim Fowler Wildlife Sayings By Jim Fowler: I had travelled pretty widely around the world even before then, so I knew where
Stop and unplug," say I; "look around you, at the vastness and greatness of the natural world." Some stop. Others need binoculars to tie their shoelaces.Fennel Hudson Wildlife Sayings By Fennel Hudson: Stop and unplug," say I; "look around you, at the vastness and greatness of the
Organic farming has been shown to provide major benefits for wildlife and the wider environment. The best that can be said about genetically engineered crops is that they will now be monitored to see how much damage they cause.Prince Charles Wildlife Sayings By Prince Charles: Organic farming has been shown to provide major benefits for wildlife and the wider environment.
The affluent society has built well in terms of economic progress, but has neglected the protection of the very water we drink as well as the values of fish and wildlife, scenic, and outdoor recreation resources. Although often measureless in commercial terms, these values must be preserved by a program that will guarantee America some semblance of her great heritage of beautiful rivers.Frank Church Wildlife Sayings By Frank Church: The affluent society has built well in terms of economic progress, but has neglected the
Mother Nature is our teacher - reconnecting us with Spirit, waking us up and liberating our hearts. When we can transcend our fear of the creatures of the forest, then we become one with all that is; we enter a unity of existence with our relatives - the animals, the plants and the land that sustains us.Sylvia Dolson Wildlife Sayings By Sylvia Dolson: Mother Nature is our teacher - reconnecting us with Spirit, waking us up and liberating
The end result of the adoption of permaculture strategies in any country or region will be to dramatically reduce the area of the agricultural environment needed by the households and the settlements of people, and to release much of the landscape for the sole use of wildlife and for re-occupation by endemic flora.Bill Mollison Wildlife Sayings By Bill Mollison: The end result of the adoption of permaculture strategies in any country or region will
We have been far too aggressive about extracting ocean wildlife, not appreciating that there are limits and even points of no return.Sylvia Earle Wildlife Sayings By Sylvia Earle: We have been far too aggressive about extracting ocean wildlife, not appreciating that there are
What they [Jim deMint and the oil lobby] do care about is the precedent. If they open up ANWR (Arctic National Wildlife Refuge), they'll think they can do anything to the environment - anything at all. Drilling in Yosemite? In the Grand Canyon? What's next?Barbara Boxer Wildlife Sayings By Barbara Boxer: What they [Jim deMint and the oil lobby] do care about is the precedent. If
Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect man.Stewart Udall Wildlife Sayings By Stewart Udall: Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect
Alaska's chief attractions are: (a) its small and insignificant human population, thanks to the miserable climate; and (b) its large and magnificent wildlife population, thanks to (a). Both of these attractions are being rapidly diminished, however, by (c) the Law of Growth and Space-Age Sleaze.Edward Abbey Wildlife Sayings By Edward Abbey: Alaska's chief attractions are: (a) its small and insignificant human population, thanks to the miserable
An air of anticipation hung over the lab. The pied crow - whose name, according to Tasha, was Pitch, and who had been raised in captivity, bouncing from wildlife center to wildlife center before winding up living in my sister's private aviary - gripped her perch stubbornly with her talons and averted her eyes from the screen, refusing to react to the avatar that was trying to catch her attention. She'd been ignoring the screen for over an hour, shutting out four researchers and a bored linguist who was convinced that I was in the middle of some sort of creative breakdown. AllElizabeth Bear Wildlife Sayings By Elizabeth Bear: An air of anticipation hung over the lab. The pied crow - whose name, according
That's the trouble with the world we live in. It's full of people just doing their job and ignoring what's really going on. Care about the rainforest until they get a couple of kids and enough money for a gas guzzling car, or some hardwood dining furniture. Watch all those wildlife programmes and coo over the furry animals, but still eat meat and poultry that was raised in conditions of unbelievable cruelty.Robert Muchamore Wildlife Sayings By Robert Muchamore: That's the trouble with the world we live in. It's full of people just doing
We are on parallel paths with the planet. The wants and needs of marine wildlife are our own: we want connection, companionship, a healthy clean environment.Adrian Grenier Wildlife Sayings By Adrian Grenier: We are on parallel paths with the planet. The wants and needs of marine wildlife
I think the wildest wildlife you can find these days is in Chernobyl, where wolves are running around breeding quite well in the nuclear disaster zones.Aleksandra Mir Wildlife Sayings By Aleksandra Mir: I think the wildest wildlife you can find these days is in Chernobyl, where wolves
Unless the local community signs up, wildlife won't survive. And without wildlife, no one will visit.Jochen Zeitz Wildlife Sayings By Jochen Zeitz: Unless the local community signs up, wildlife won't survive. And without wildlife, no one will
The evening before I departed I stood on the rim of a lagoon on Isla Rabida. Flamingos rode on its dark surface like pink swans, apparently asleep. Small, curved feathers, shed from their breasts, drifted away from them over the water on a light breeze. I did not move for an hour. It was a moment of such peace, every troubled thread in a human spirit might have uncoiled and sorted itself into a graceful order. Other flamingos stood in the shallows with diffident elegance in the falling light, not feeding but only staring off toward the ocean. They seemed a kind of animal I had never quite seen before.Barry Lopez Wildlife Sayings By Barry Lopez: The evening before I departed I stood on the rim of a lagoon on Isla
I'm not into animal rights. I'm only into animal welfare and health. I've been with the Morris Animal Foundation since the '70s. We're a health organization. We fund campaign health studies for dogs, cats, lizards and wildlife. I've worked with the L.A. Zoo for about the same length of time. I get my animal fixes!Betty White Wildlife Sayings By Betty White: I'm not into animal rights. I'm only into animal welfare and health. I've been with
I have always found thick woods a little intimidating, for they are so secret and enclosed. You may seem alone but you are not, for there are always eyes watching you. All the wildlife of the woods, the insects, birds, and animals, are well aware of your presence no matter how softly you may tread, and they follow your every move although you cannot see them.Thalassa Cruso Wildlife Sayings By Thalassa Cruso: I have always found thick woods a little intimidating, for they are so secret and
He skied Mount Bachelor. I wasn't much of a skier, so I went off to track down wildlife while he had a great time on the slopes. Meeting him at the lodge afterward, I had to head off a leggy blonde who was intent on teaching Steve how to use an American pay phone. Not the kind of wildlife I was interested in him experiencing.Terri Irwin Wildlife Sayings By Terri Irwin: He skied Mount Bachelor. I wasn't much of a skier, so I went off to
A trademark of something that works well, the cat body has hardly changed since its inception. Like with today's cats, their digestive systems could handle only flesh. The lesson of the cat is that if you are to become a full-fledged carnivore, you have to commit everything to it. A house cat fed vegetarian food will shrivel and die.Craig Childs Wildlife Sayings By Craig Childs: A trademark of something that works well, the cat body has hardly changed since its
I cannot in good conscience vote for final passage of legislation that would pave the way to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.Jim Ramstad Wildlife Sayings By Jim Ramstad: I cannot in good conscience vote for final passage of legislation that would pave the
Every creature on earth returns to home. It is ironic that we have made wildlife refuges for ibis, pelican, egret, wolf, crane, deer, mouse, moose, and bear, but not for ourselves in the places we live day after day. We understand that the loss of habitat is the most disastrous event that can occur to a free creauture.
We fervently point out how other creatures' natural territories have become surrounded by cities, ranches, highways, noise, and other dissonance, as though we are not affected also.
We know that for creatures to live on, they must at least from time to time have a home place, a place where they feel both protected and free
Clarissa Pinkola Estes Wildlife Sayings By Clarissa Pinkola Estes: Every creature on earth returns to home. It is ironic that we have made wildlife
You completely rediscovered & relived everything to do with wildlife.Terri Irwin Wildlife Sayings By Terri Irwin: You completely rediscovered & relived everything to do with wildlife.
We live in a shockingly beautiful world. We are walking through the living kingdom of heaven every day; the colours, the sound, the love of others, the potential to create, the plants, wildlife, nature, music, all sensations and life ... but if we refuse to see colour and beauty we may as well be in Hell. Maybe an animated band was the best way of announcing this.Gorillaz Wildlife Sayings By Gorillaz: We live in a shockingly beautiful world. We are walking through the living kingdom of
Three mongooses, playing chase, burst out of the undergrowth and came galumphing across the track. The leader stopped and the other two bounced on him. There was a crazy bundle of squealing fur, ears, noses and tails. The mongooses broke apart. All three stood up on hind legs to look at us.Jane Wilson-Howarth Wildlife Sayings By Jane Wilson-Howarth: Three mongooses, playing chase, burst out of the undergrowth and came galumphing across the track.
No one is more keen than me to see the Hunting Act repealed, because I believe in the management of wildlife.Owen Paterson Wildlife Sayings By Owen Paterson: No one is more keen than me to see the Hunting Act repealed, because I
Catching fish is low on my agenda when I go fishing. I'm much more interested in savouring the day and exploring the wildlife of the river.Fennel Hudson Wildlife Sayings By Fennel Hudson: Catching fish is low on my agenda when I go fishing. I'm much more interested
She linked arms with me as we walked down the hall, and every wildlife researcher will tell you that when it comes to survival in a hostile environment, a pack of two is infinitely safer than a pack of one. OneJodi Picoult Wildlife Sayings By Jodi Picoult: She linked arms with me as we walked down the hall, and every wildlife researcher
Naught but leaves brushed in the wind, stemming from the forest behind my house. Oh, and of course, the wildlife seized every chance to tell the stars who they were; they hooted, howled, and growled. And deep under the roots of trees in little holes lived rabbits, cuddling next to their young. All the while Mr. Ant and his colony were dragging a once boisterous Nocturnal Cicada to the nest; a feast for days! I suppose my daydreaming occasionally did extend into the night. I've spent countless hours I'll never regain, but for the off-chance I was right just once, it was worth every second.Kevin Focke Wildlife Sayings By Kevin Focke: Naught but leaves brushed in the wind, stemming from the forest behind my house. Oh,
These steel monstrosities screamed night and day, blotted out the starlit skies and Northern Lights with flashing red strobes, slaughtered thousands of bats and entire flocks of birds banished tourism and wildlife, made people sick and drove them from their now-valueless homes.Mike Bond Wildlife Sayings By Mike Bond: These steel monstrosities screamed night and day, blotted out the starlit skies and Northern Lights
Some corporations don't want free markets, and they don't want democracy. They want profits. And they use our campaign finance system to loot our commons, to steal from our treasury, and the other shared resources of our community - the air, the water, the public lands, the wildlife, the things that belong to all of us that are held in trust for future generations. Corporations cannot act philanthropically in America.Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Wildlife Sayings By Robert F. Kennedy Jr.: Some corporations don't want free markets, and they don't want democracy. They want profits. And
The message is simple: love and conserve our wildlife.Steve Irwin Wildlife Sayings By Steve Irwin: The message is simple: love and conserve our wildlife.
I have a love for astronomy; Aruna, my wife, and I love travelling, so whenever we get an opportunity, we set off to explore places that have tickled our interest. We are also wildlife enthusiasts.Viswanathan Anand Wildlife Sayings By Viswanathan Anand: I have a love for astronomy; Aruna, my wife, and I love travelling, so whenever
I look at ANWR (Artic National Wildlife Refuge) as a poison pill in the energy bill.Ben Nelson Wildlife Sayings By Ben Nelson: I look at ANWR (Artic National Wildlife Refuge) as a poison pill in the energy
I don't mean to defend zoos. Close them all down if you want (and let us hope that what wildlife remains can survive in what is left of the natural world). I know zoos are no longer in people's good graces. Religion faces the same problem. Certain illusion about freedom plague them both.Yann Martel Wildlife Sayings By Yann Martel: I don't mean to defend zoos. Close them all down if you want (and let
A lot of people who work with wildlife work with wildlife to satisfy their own egos. And I don't really agree with that. What I do is get in nice and close to the animal to make the animal look good. My aim in this world is to make that brown snake, that crocodile, that koala, that red-backed spider, that black widow, look good. That's my job. I have absolutely no problem with my ego or my staff's ego.Steve Irwin Wildlife Sayings By Steve Irwin: A lot of people who work with wildlife work with wildlife to satisfy their own
My dad dedicated his life to getting across the wildlife message, and I love that I can carry on his legacy. I want to make sure his message never dies.Bindi Irwin Wildlife Sayings By Bindi Irwin: My dad dedicated his life to getting across the wildlife message, and I love that
The time I spent in the jungles held unalloyed happiness for me, and that happiness I would now gladly share. My happiness, I believe, resulted from the fact that all wildlife is happy in its natural surroundings. In nature there is no sorrow, and no repining. A bird from a flock, or an animal from a herd, is taken by hawk or carnivorous beast and those that are left rejoice that their time had not come today, and have no thought of tomorrow.Jim Corbett Wildlife Sayings By Jim Corbett: The time I spent in the jungles held unalloyed happiness for me, and that happiness
Well, my son really loves wildlife. And everytime he draws a polar bear I want to tell him there probably won't any by the time ... he's my age. That's kinda hard to deal with.Thom Yorke Wildlife Sayings By Thom Yorke: Well, my son really loves wildlife. And everytime he draws a polar bear I want
I don't want to see crocs end up as boots, bags and belts. We're killing and consuming our wildlife icons.Bindi Irwin Wildlife Sayings By Bindi Irwin: I don't want to see crocs end up as boots, bags and belts. We're killing
Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower created the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, an achievement that much of the Republican Party has been trying to undo over the past several decades. Richard Nixon signed into law four landmark federal bills: the Clean Air Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, the Environmental Pesticide Control Act, and the Endangered Species Act. He established the Environmental Protection Agency, and made many strong environmental appointments in his administration. As we saw in Section 2.2, it was when the Reagan administration came to power in 1980 that environmental concern began to become a partisan issue.Dale Jamieson Wildlife Sayings By Dale Jamieson: Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower created the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, an achievement that much
If we bring together the right people, communities can flourish and wildlife can survive alongside them.Jochen Zeitz Wildlife Sayings By Jochen Zeitz: If we bring together the right people, communities can flourish and wildlife can survive alongside
Wolves ... are a balance wheel of nature.Lois Crisler Wildlife Sayings By Lois Crisler: Wolves ... are a balance wheel of nature.
Forests and trees make significant direct contributions to the nutrition of poor households ... [as] rural communities in Central Africa obtained a critical portion of protein and fat in their diets through hunting wildlife from in and around forests. The five to six million tonnes of bushmeat eaten yearly in the Congo Basin is roughly equal to the total amount of beef produced annually in Brazil - without the accompanying need to clear huge swathes of forest for cattle.Frances Ford Seymour Wildlife Sayings By Frances Ford Seymour: Forests and trees make significant direct contributions to the nutrition of poor households ... [as]
There is too little public recognition of how much we all depend upon farmers as stewards of our soil, water and wildlife resources.John F. Kennedy Wildlife Sayings By John F. Kennedy: There is too little public recognition of how much we all depend upon farmers as
The wild is where you find it, not in some distant world relegated to a nostalgic past or an idealized future; its presence is not black or white, bad or good, corrupted or innocent... We are of that nature, not apart from it. We survive because of it, not instead of it.Renee Askins Wildlife Sayings By Renee Askins: The wild is where you find it, not in some distant world relegated to a
Those who have never seen a leopard under favourable conditions in his natural surroundings can have no conception of the grace of movement, and beauty of colouring, of this the most gracefuL and the most beautiful of all animales in our Indian jungles.Jim Corbett Wildlife Sayings By Jim Corbett: Those who have never seen a leopard under favourable conditions in his natural surroundings can
If you can't excite people about wildlife, how can you convince them to love, cherish, and protect our wildlife and the environment they live in?Steve Irwin Wildlife Sayings By Steve Irwin: If you can't excite people about wildlife, how can you convince them to love, cherish,
The Galapagos Islands are probably the most famous wildlife-watching destination in the world. And no wonder - it's almost impossible to exaggerate the sheer spectacle of the place that provided inspiration for Charles Darwin's ground-breaking theory of natural selection.Mark Carwardine Wildlife Sayings By Mark Carwardine: The Galapagos Islands are probably the most famous wildlife-watching destination in the world. And no
The truth is that we will never save wildlife by killing it.Steve Irwin Wildlife Sayings By Steve Irwin: The truth is that we will never save wildlife by killing it.
Seafood is simply a socially acceptable form of bush meat. We condemn Africans for hunting monkeys and mammalian and bird species from the jungle yet the developed world thinks nothing of hauling in magnificent wild creatures like swordfish, tuna, halibut, shark, and salmon for our meals. The fact is that the global slaughter of marine wildlife is simply the largest massacre of wildlife on the planet.Paul Watson Wildlife Sayings By Paul Watson: Seafood is simply a socially acceptable form of bush meat. We condemn Africans for hunting
All over the world the wildlife that I write about is in grave danger. It is being exterminated by what we call the progress of civilization.Gerald Durrell Wildlife Sayings By Gerald Durrell: All over the world the wildlife that I write about is in grave danger. It
Well, it would be helpful to not have to go through all of these in Braille," the man said. "I'm looking for the local wildlife guide and one other book." He held a paper out in front of him, and she took it. "The head librarian wrote the authors' names down for me," the man said, grinning. "I don't think she realized I couldn't read it." "That would be my boss," Julia sighed. "She's ... she's the kind of person who yells at deaf people.Aubrey Rose Wildlife Sayings By Aubrey Rose: Well, it would be helpful to not have to go through all of these in
I weren't an actor, I'd be a wildlife biologist or forest ranger.Ricky Schroder Wildlife Sayings By Ricky Schroder: I weren't an actor, I'd be a wildlife biologist or forest ranger.
A profession is a body of men who voluntarily measure their work by a higher standard than their clients demand. To be professionally acceptable, a policy must be sound as well as salable. Wildlife administration, in this respect, is not yet a profession.Aldo Leopold Wildlife Sayings By Aldo Leopold: A profession is a body of men who voluntarily measure their work by a higher
There's an exact moment for leaping into the lives of wild animals. You have to feel their lives first, how they fit the world around them. It's like the beat of music. Their eyes, the sounds they make, their head, movements, their feet and their whole body, the closeness of things around them - all this and more make up the way they perceive and adjust to their world.Richard O'Barry Wildlife Sayings By Richard O'Barry: There's an exact moment for leaping into the lives of wild animals. You have to
Alice doesn't seem to mind because she's laughing too, and biting her lip, all doe-eyed, and tossing her freshly washed hair, and Norton tosses his lovely, glossy hair back, and she tosses her hair in return, and he tosses his, and she tosses hers, and it;s like some mating ritual on a wildlife program.David Nicholls Wildlife Sayings By David Nicholls: Alice doesn't seem to mind because she's laughing too, and biting her lip, all doe-eyed,
My interest in wildlife began early and I don't know how early because it's the only thing I've ever been interested in. I've always had a certain curiosity, a certain wonder about the natural world. I like to be outdoors.George Schaller Wildlife Sayings By George Schaller: My interest in wildlife began early and I don't know how early because it's the
People are beginning to realize that it's important that we see animals in a natural state - but through film, through video, through documentaries, at wildlife preserves, and through other humanely protected ways, which don't involve ... performing for us.Montel Williams Wildlife Sayings By Montel Williams: People are beginning to realize that it's important that we see animals in a natural
You can drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, on every continental shelf and atop every hill in America for that matter, and you still won't reverse the fact that our oil production is in permanent decline. We're just sopping up what's left, digging ourselves into a deeper hole.Roscoe Bartlett Wildlife Sayings By Roscoe Bartlett: You can drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, on every continental shelf and atop
The value of land may be determined by how it can be used. For example, it may contain valuable resources such as water, minerals, tillable soil, timber or wildlife. There also may be commercial value in the natural attraction of land such as caves, lakes or trails. Land value can be reduced by erosion, flood, earthquake, fire or regulation.Marshall Wilson Reavis III Wildlife Sayings By Marshall Wilson Reavis III: The value of land may be determined by how it can be used. For example,
Lucas - You'll have to excuse Paige's overenthusiastic attempt to befriend the local wildlife. Not many of their type where she comes from.
Paige -Hey, we have gangs in Boston.
Lucas - Ah, yes. I believe they're particularly bad down by the wharf, where they're liable to descend upon the unwary, surround him with their yachts, and shout well-chosen and elegantly elocuted epithets.
Kelley Armstrong Wildlife Sayings By Kelley Armstrong: Lucas - You'll have to excuse Paige's overenthusiastic attempt to befriend the local wildlife. Not
Kaylee giggled as he tunneled up inside her sleeve.
Out popped his head for a quick look, then he took leave.
He enjoyed scaling up, down and around her shirt.
What a sweet, funny and adorable flirt.

Our guests have an insatiable curiosity for up close and personal worldwide adventures - whether one is taking a segment of the World Cruise or the entire voyage. Traveling to different countries aboard the luxurious floating resort that is Crystal Serenity is just one part of their experience. Our guests relish the opportunity to venture beyond the port cities to experience the destinations' culture, wildlife and unique treasures.Bill Smith Wildlife Sayings By Bill Smith: Our guests have an insatiable curiosity for up close and personal worldwide adventures - whether
Fish and Wildlife wants to fine us for killing a giant mutant Tennessee River catfish because it was endangered. Sure it had just crawled up on land and eaten some teenagers, but it was still an endangered species.Larry Correia Wildlife Sayings By Larry Correia: Fish and Wildlife wants to fine us for killing a giant mutant Tennessee River catfish
I have spent hours and hours watching elephants, and to come to understand what emotional creatures they are...it's not just a species facing extinction, it's massive individual suffering.Mike Bond Wildlife Sayings By Mike Bond: I have spent hours and hours watching elephants, and to come to understand what emotional
One was watching the other day a red-tailed hawk, high in the heavens, circling effortlessly, without a beat of the wing, just for the fun of flying, just to be sustained by the air-currents. Then it was joined by another, and they were flying together for quite a while. They were marvellous creatures in that blue sky, and to hurt them in any way is a crime against heaven. Of course there is no heaven; man has invented heaven out of hope, for his life has become a hell, an endless conflict from birth to death, coming and going, making money, working endlessly. This life has become a turmoil, a travail of endless striving. One wonders if man, a human being, will ever live on this earth peacefully. Conflict has been the way of his life - within the skin and outside the skin, in the area of the psyche and in the society which that psyche has created.Jiddu Krishnamurti Wildlife Sayings By Jiddu Krishnamurti: One was watching the other day a red-tailed hawk, high in the heavens, circling effortlessly,
Crocodiles are easy,' Steve said. 'They try to kill and eat you. People are harder. Sometimes they pretend to be your friend first.Terri Irwin Wildlife Sayings By Terri Irwin: Crocodiles are easy,' Steve said. 'They try to kill and eat you. People are harder.
It may be underfunded and at times mismanaged, but the [Endangered Species] Act is an unprecedented attempt to delegate human-caused extinction to the chapters of history we would rather not revisit: the Slave Trade, the Indian Removal Policy, the subjection of women, child labor, segregation. The Endangered Species Act is a zero-tolerance law: no new extinctions. It keeps eyes on the ground with legal backing-the gun may be in the holster most of the time, but its available if necessary to keep species from disappearing. I discovered in my travels that a law protecting all animals and plants, all of nature, might be as revolutionary-and as American-as the Declaration of Independence.Joe Roman Wildlife Sayings By Joe Roman: It may be underfunded and at times mismanaged, but the [Endangered Species] Act is an
As the natural world grows smaller, so too does its intensity and the size of the window through which it may be viewed.Fennel Hudson Wildlife Sayings By Fennel Hudson: As the natural world grows smaller, so too does its intensity and the size of
There is a lot of corruption all over the world and not only when it comes to illegal wildlife trade! There are a few ways to ensure this stops: If there are no customers, there will be no trade.Jane Goodall Wildlife Sayings By Jane Goodall: There is a lot of corruption all over the world and not only when it
I've always been interested in wolves, since I was a child. There was a wolf enclosure in a wildlife park very close to where I was brought up; they were the main attraction.Sarah Hall Wildlife Sayings By Sarah Hall: I've always been interested in wolves, since I was a child. There was a wolf
There is still quite a lot of life out there, but it is mostly very small. According to a wildlife census by an ecologist at the University of Illinois named V. E. Shelford, a typical ten-square-mile block of eastern American forest holds almost 300,000 mammals - 220,000 mice and other small rodents, 63,500 squirrels and chipmunks, 470 deer, 30 foxes, and 5 black bears.Bill Bryson Wildlife Sayings By Bill Bryson: There is still quite a lot of life out there, but it is mostly very
By means of trees, wildlife could be conserved, pollution decreased, and the beauty of our landscapes enhanced. This is the way, or at least one of the ways, to spiritual, moral, and cultural regeneration.E.F. Schumacher Wildlife Sayings By E.F. Schumacher: By means of trees, wildlife could be conserved, pollution decreased, and the beauty of our
I've often been asked what drives me, particularly through the last 50 years of abuse, and ridicule. What has kept me going is one word - care. I care enough about the land, the wildlife, people, the future of humanity. If you care enough, you will do whatever you have to do, no matter what the opposition.Allan Savory Wildlife Sayings By Allan Savory: I've often been asked what drives me, particularly through the last 50 years of abuse,
Wilderness without wildlife is just scenery.Lois Crisler Wildlife Sayings By Lois Crisler: Wilderness without wildlife is just scenery.
You think back and you ask yourself why you became so interested in wolves. I think it was because when I was very small, growing up in a little hamlet near Shap, we would go to Lowther Wildlife Park for birthday parties. Now closed, it was only three miles from my parents' house.Sarah Hall Wildlife Sayings By Sarah Hall: You think back and you ask yourself why you became so interested in wolves. I
I don't eat animals. I rescue strays and take injured pigeons to the wildlife rehab. I carry spiders and wasps outside in a cup covered with a 3x5 card. It would only follow that I'd take pause when contemplating the abrupt and apparently brutal ending of a tiny human being's life, or even a potential human being's life.Victoria Moran Wildlife Sayings By Victoria Moran: I don't eat animals. I rescue strays and take injured pigeons to the wildlife rehab.
Faraway a leopard barked that high, dissatisfied deep roar it cuts off so sharply, as if its annoyance is too great to express, can only be appeased.Mike Bond Wildlife Sayings By Mike Bond: Faraway a leopard barked that high, dissatisfied deep roar it cuts off so sharply, as
Drug and human traffic are getting a lot more attention than illicit wildlife trafficking. And just as we need to intensify our efforts to combat drug trade and human trafficking, we also need to intensify our efforts to combat illicit wildlife trafficking ... They all need to be addressed through bold and consistent actions by the international community.Robert Hormats Wildlife Sayings By Robert Hormats: Drug and human traffic are getting a lot more attention than illicit wildlife trafficking. And
Wind and other clean, renewable energy will help end our reliance on fossil fuels and combat the severe threat that climate change poses to humans and wildlife alike.Frances Beinecke Wildlife Sayings By Frances Beinecke: Wind and other clean, renewable energy will help end our reliance on fossil fuels and
I think of everything and I'm pretty sure if I could use my organizational skills for something else, like wildlife survival kits or preparing people for nuclear warfare, I'd be a millionaire.
