Christmas Animals from Around the World

Christmas Animals from Around the World

Christmas Day is now here. As you might have noticed, around this time of year there are plenty of cute animals representing the Christmas spirit in TV shows, films, greeting cards, decorations and so on. These Christmas icons have developed over time based on myths and stories from different cultures. We reindeer are the animals that pull Santa Claus’s sled and guide him all over the world. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a fictional reindeer created in 1939 by Robert Lewis May. Aside from reindeer, many other animals are closely connected with Christmas, including partridges and turtle doves which are featured in the song, “The 12 Days of Christmas.” In most Western ecclesiastical traditions, December 25 is considered the First Day of Christmas and ends 12 days later on January 5. In this context, the partridge symbolizes Jesus Christ, a Gift sent by God! Doves are frequently mentioned in the Holy Bible and are symbols of peace, love and loyalty. Britain’s national bird is frequently depicted on festive greeting cards and Christmas gift wrap. This originates from the postman delivering Christmas cards in the 19th century. As a symbol of divine sacrifice, the English robin is also closely related with a legend of Christ’s birth. On the first Christmas, it is said that the night was extremely cold. The Baby Jesus slept happily, thanks to the robin. According to European folklore, roosters were assigned to announce the glorious birth of Jesus to the people. Around midnight, the first rooster cried out in a human voice, “Christ is born!” The second followed, “In Bethlehem!” The final Christmas animal, the Yule goat, is not a real one. In Sweden, the goat was viewed as an invisible spirit that came before Christmas to check that all the preparations for the holiday were finished. Supreme Master Ching Hai is the Santa Claus for Her adorable dogs on Christmas Day! Many kinds of animals worldwide are connected to Christmas, and I can assure you that each species associated with this holy day is quite proud of this distinction!

3D Printing Technology: Working Wonders for Animals, Part 1 of 2

Three-D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is a process that builds 3D objects by layering materials one by one from a digital file. Compared to conventional manufacturing, including injection molding and subtractive production, 3D printing is more cost-effective as it doesn’t require expensive molds. It also uses less material, energy and labor, generates less waste, and is faster for both production and revision. One of the most exciting and game-changing 3D printing application fields is veterinary medicine. Thanks to 3D printing technologies, these animals now have a much greater chance of living an extended and healthy life. In December 2014, a young male chestnut-mandibled toucan named Grecia in Costa Rica was a tragic victim of animal abuse and lost the upper half of his beautiful beak. Grecia accepted the artificial beak made of special nylon, and he has become a happy bird. He shook off his depression and quickly learned to use his new beak to bathe, eat and preen himself. In July 2019, Lorraine Young noticed her beloved Andy, a seven-year-old dachshund, was unable to walk on all four legs. Andy became the first canine patient with this disease to benefit from 3D printing technology. The veterinary team created an exact 3D printed replica of Andy’s spine from his CT scan images. As the 3D model could bend and move like Andy’s actual spine, doctors could examine it and decide how to proceed during the operation. Andy’s operation and recovery went very well: When Lorraine went to visit him with some family members a few days after the procedure, Andy ran to them – wobbly, but wagging his tail and giving kisses to everyone’s delight.

Sea Angels: The Glamorous Light Makers

Sea Angels: The Glamorous Light Makers

Icelanders are surrounded by the ocean, which is so mysterious and superabundant in flora and fauna, well beyond humanity’s imagination. Please take a closer look at our luminescent body, wing-like fins, and how gracefully we flutter our wings. We love to cluster together. Don’t we look like heavenly beings flying through the blue skies? there are two groups of sea angels. The larger subspecies, like me, inhabit icy regions and can be up to 8.5 centimeters long. The smaller subspecies live in warmer tropical waters and measure 1 to 2 centimeters in length. Once upon a time, there were snails developing skills to live in water to find a better place to survive. They ventured into an unknown world, the oceans. They were sea snails finding ways to inhabit the bottom of the sea. Some sea snails wanting to live closer to the water’s surface were courageous enough to give up their shells and evolved into a totally new species, the sea angels. Although we lost our eyes during the evolutionary process, we can use the two horns on our head to sense our surroundings. We also have greatly improved our swimming skills. We can swim horizontally and vertically. Generally, we enjoy swimming upward in a very slow and graceful rhythm, like flying angels, and this is how we acquired our beautiful name. Many studies have indicated that the life span of a sea angel is one to two years. The light we emit is called bioluminescence. Like us, over three-fourths of marine beings can produce light, mostly blue and green in color. Making light is not something mysterious or supernatural. It is created through chemical reactions or made by host bacteria. We depend on you to keep the seas clean and healthy so please minimize your purchases of single-use plastics and, of course, stick to plant-based seafood only!

Hoatzin: The Enigmatic Bird

Hoatzin: The Enigmatic Bird

We hoatzins live in trees and shrubs among the swamps, tropical riverbanks, and mangroves around the Amazon and Orinoco rivers in South America. We are Guyana’s national bird and are honorably included in Guyana’s Coat of Arms. Interestingly, from an evolutionary standpoint, nobody really knows where we came from! We have an extraordinarily colorful appearance. With an un-feathered blue face and maroon eyes, our small head is topped with a cool, spiky 10-centimeter rufous crest, just like a punk rocker’s mohawk. Therefore, some locals call us “Punk Rock Birds.” Hoatzins are exclusively vegan, and along with the Owl Parrot, we are the only two bird species that primarily eat leaves. We also sometimes eat buds, flowers, and fruits as dessert. Foraging in the early morning and evening, we spend the rest of the day comfortably roosting. We have a very potent odor, and are also known as the stink or skunk bird of the marshes. We have a super-sized crop at the base of our throat to store and digest consumed leaves and fruits. This stinky smell is from the chemicals released during the fermentation process taking place in the crop, where bacteria slowly break down the fibrous leaves for us. The rumination process is just like a cow’s, so some people call us “flying cows.” What’s so special about our chicks? They have claws on their wings! While some other birds, such as chickens, kea parrots, and ostriches also have vestigial claws on their wings, we are the only living bird with functional ones that are important to our survival. These cool and handy wing claws are present and functional only when we are young. They disappear once we reach adulthood. The next time you join an Amazon River cruise, look for our spiky orange Mohawk, and listen for us!

3D Printing Technology: Working Wonders for Animals, Part 2 of 2

In today’s program, I will introduce more touching stories about how 3D printing helps animals and the innovative 3D bioprinting technologies that could help hasten the end of the vile practice of animal testing in the future. In 2009, Seemore the green sea turtle was hit by a boat propeller in the Florida Keys. This hindered her ability to dive normally to find food in the wild and she could no longer live independently. After a computed tomography (CT) scan in July 2017, the team examined Seemore’s shell structure and the damage, and then selected the exo-shell design. The considerate project team attached the 3D printed prototypes to Seemore’s shell using Velcro during the testing process, so the prototypes could be easily removed, adjusted or reattached without moving Seemore out of her tank. Thanks to the team’s labor of love and Traner Knott’s loving care around the clock, Seemore can now happily dive like a normal turtle with her 3D printed backpack. Many new cosmetics, drugs, vaccines, and other products are often tested on animal models to determine their supposed efficacy and safety before human trials or being released into the market. There have been increasing protests against the unethical, inhumane and useless practice of animal testing in recent years, and compassionate scientists are responding with an eye-opening alternative - 3D bioprinting. Since the EU banned animal testing in cosmetics products in 2009, bioprinting human skin tissues for cosmetics testing has become the primary area of interest. In addition to skin tissues, other biocompatible human tissues can also be bioprinted. The organ-on-a-chip technology has the advantages of rapid response and precision control, hence researchers can test new medicine cheaper and quicker than animal models. On the other hand, the cool and creative 3D bioprinting technologies have great potential to save countless animal lives as researchers turn away from animal testing. May these life-saving technologies rapidly become more efficient and cheaper to benefit more animals, in God’s blessings.

The Dawn of Benevolent Animal Testing

I was nominated today to speak on behalf of the nearly 200 million animals used in laboratory experiments worldwide annually with mice and rats accounting for the vast majority of lab animals. We BALB/c mice are one of the most used types and are laboratory-bred albino house mice. Since the 1920s, we have been bred for disease modeling and gene manipulation, and sold in large quantities, as if

Animals in the Snow Wonderland

00:12:37

Animals in the Snow Wonderland

Today we will explore incredible winter lands with amazing wild animals. Penguins, the iconic animal of the Antarctic, are well known for their endurance in extreme conditions, with the emperor penguin able to withstand temperatures of -30°C with winds blasting at 200 kilometers per hour. Generally speaking, warm-blooded animals that inhabit cold regions are fairly big. Large animals have a smaller surface to volume ratio and thus relatively less surface area through which to lose heat. The smallest Antarctic penguin, the rockhopper, weighs an average of 2.5 kilograms, and the largest, the emperor penguin, is around 30 kilograms in weight. Male emperor penguins also huddle together in groups of several thousand to survive the biting wind and relentless cold. Scientists have recorded temperatures of more than 35 degrees Celsius within the huddle. Keep warm guys! Japanese macaques, also known as snow monkeys, truly love the snow, particularly the young ones. They roll about and play in it. The youngsters make snowballs, carry them around, and have fun with them. They even play a game of trying to take each other’s snowballs! These macaques are great leapers and tree climbers, which they take advantage of to move around when there is thick snow. To cope with the icy-cold temperatures, snow leopards are protected by thick gray or creamy yellow hair with grayish-black spots. Their broad feet, which are covered with fur, act as natural snowshoes. They use their long tails as blankets to protect sensitive body parts against the biting mountain chill. These tremendous jumpers can cross up to 15 meters in one leap. The snow leopard is listed as an endangered species, with only about 3,500 to 7,000 left in the wild.It has been my pleasure to show you how we animals adapt to the cold winter with heavy snow. Despite our amazing ability to withstand the freezing temperatures, we would much appreciate it if you would take extra care when walking through our habitats to not disturb us during our most vulnerable time in winter.

Wildlife Conservation Day: A Call for Action

00:14:08

Wildlife Conservation Day: A Call for Action

Thousands of our wildlife co-inhabitants are facing a similar fate. Their populations have declined rapidly and many species are in imminent danger of extinction. According to a new report from the conservation group the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), a Shining World Compassion Award recipient, human activity has caused the planet to lose two-thirds of its wildlife since 1970. In just over four decades, the global wildlife populations have dropped by an average of 68%. This rapidly decreasing rate is a warning that many wild animals will be extinct by the end of the 21st century. Some of them will disappear from the Earth before scientists even discover them. How can humans help assist with wildlife conservation and rehabilitation and steer us towards a pandemic-free world? I have some suggestions. Please help raise the awareness of how important animals are to the ecosystems through education. Work with local wildlife conservation programs and rehabilitation projects to learn more about endangered species, and how to protect them. Please use recycled and sustainable products, and support eco-friendly and green technologies that guard nature and the Earth. Please buy recycled and tree-free paper, which helps to reduce the felling of woodlands. Also, choose palm oil-free products to avoid forests from being bulldozed to create palm oil plantations, thus permanently displacing native species. Government and nature-focused non-governmental organizations worldwide should become involved in safeguarding all species by monitoring populations, restoring habitats, building more rehabilitation centers, and improving natural ecosystems. Another idea is to enact more pro-animal laws to shield wildlife, such as banning their trading, hunting, and poaching as well as prohibiting their use for amusement or consumption. Please refrain from purchasing souvenirs, shoes, clothing, or any other products made from animals such as ivory, bone, feathers, fur, turtle shell, leather, dried coral, and seashells. Avoid patronizing any events that profit from the use of wildlife, such as animal circuses and captive animal performances. In conclusion, the root solution for the immense, ongoing global destruction of wildlife is that humanity should change its diet to a compassionate plant-based one. A vegan food system not only benefits the health of humans and our planet but also can save our impressive planetary assortment of fauna from extinction. We should work hand in hand to protect our shared biosphere.

Klipspringers: The African Rock Jumpers

I am an agile and ardent rock-climbing antelope and have been told that my special species is one of South Africa’s favorite animals. We prefer to live among rocky hills, outcrops, koppies, also known as small hills, or gorges with steep rocky sides. These all provide excellent shelter for our families. We klipspringers reach a height of 43-60 centimeters, with males being taller than the females.
