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!

Altruistic Animals

Today we would like to share with you some amazing stories of animals who turned their selfless concern into loving action for the benefit of others. Let’s start with a cat named Kuu. Cat Assists Dog with Dementia. Cat Saves Baby from Danger. Dog Keeps Lost Child Safe and Warm. Cat Saves Caregiver from Fire. Dog Saves Family from Fire. Let’s now meet a bull calf named Oliver. Bull Calf gives Love to Blind Bison. Just like humans, we animals are beings that have feelings. There are times when each of us needs some support, and these are the opportunities for those close to us to let their nobility shine and give selflessly. I trust you have enjoyed today’s stories and are perhaps even inspired to lend a softer heart and a more generous hand to all of Earth’s inhabitants.

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.

Caring for Furry Pals During a Lockdown, Part 1 of 2

"Tender-hearted viewers, I’m Max, an orange tabby cat, and this is my sister Nala. She is a potcake dog, a Caribbean term for a mixed breed canine. We both are adopted animal companions and follow a compassionate vegan diet. Nala, did you notice, when our country enforced a coronavirus lockdown for months, that things changed? The streets were deserted, shops were closed, and all the tourists were gone. How about us companion animals? Can we get this virus?" "It's not entirely clear. Currently, experts believe that if a dog or cat has it, the chances of passing it on to people are low. However, human caregivers are adivsed to keep their animal children indoors to prevent transmission of the virus." "Yes, it’s safer to do that. It protects them from carrying the virus back home." "Also, human companions should practice healthy habits around their furry kids, such as washing their hands with soap and water before and after interacting with them, and disinfecting their paws by wiping them with a soft cloth and a vinegar-water mix before coming inside. They should not let other people touch their furry kids, or pet other people’s animal companions out of an abundance of caution." "That’s very important. During a lockdown, where do people get food for their furry children?" "They can cook nutritious vegan food for us if commercial vegan cat or dog food is not available." "That’s good. Having fruits and veggies can provide vitally important nutrition for our immune system. Mom always prepares veggie food for us. That’s why we are so healthy. Apart from having cooked meals for us, Mom spent more time with us during the lockdown to keep us entertained." "To lighten a furry companion’s mood during a lockdown, people can play games with him or her to cheer them up. It’s not only fun but also gives the animal friend some exercise." "We hope you take good care of yourself and stay healthy so that you can protect both your beloved human and furry family members during these challenging times."

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 1 of 2

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 1 of 2

Being a father is one of the toughest jobs in the world, and their love is often underrated. It takes a tremendous amount of work and caring to be a good dad for both humans and animals alike. In this two-part program, I will introduce some of the greatest animal papas I know of, who demonstrate the essence of fatherhood through their dedication and sacrifices for their young. The first great fathers in the animal kingdom to discuss are the red fox dads. In March, when the babies are born, the father shares the burden of raising the new arrivals. While the mother stays in the den to nurse and care for the babies, he will bring her food every four to six hours. When the cubs start coming out of their abode to explore the world, dad will play as well as groom and lick them to show his affection. Once the young foxes grow bigger, he stops delivering food to them. This is daddy’s tough love, even though it’s hard for him to do. He hides food nearby, and covers it with twigs and leaves, to train his young cubs to forage it for themselves. Eventually, dad begins to take his offspring on trips to teach them the survival skills needed for life. As you can see, dad red foxes love their little ones as much as their mothers. What attentive and indulgent fathers they are! Male seahorses, and male pipefish and seadragons who are close relatives, are the most well-known and extraordinary fathers of the animal kingdom, as they are the only males that undergo pregnancy. A seahorse dad can carry up to 2,000 eggs for 2 to 4 weeks in his belly pouch and does similar things that a human mother does. This pouch operates very much the same as a human mom’s uterus, providing the embryos with nutrients and oxygen, removing their wastes, supplying antibacterial molecules, and regulating the blood flow, salinity, and temperature levels for the little ones. When the young seahorses are ready to be born, their father gives birth through energetically-costly muscular contractions, just like human mothers. As a dedicated and adorable caring father, seahorse dads truly deserve a cool daddy recognition!

The Wonderful World of Whales

00:17:52

The Wonderful World of Whales

We whales are mysterious beings and one of the oldest aquatic mammals in our world. Although we live in the oceans, 50 million years ago, our ancestors lived on land. Today, we are living almost everywhere in the world’s oceans, from the North to the South Pole. We have a lot of human-like features - we breathe air, have a little hair, are warm-blooded, and feed our babies with milk. There are two main families: baleen and toothed whales. Baleen whales are generally huge, especially the great blue whale, considered the biggest animal in the world. The biggest of the toothed whale family are my cousins, the sperm whales. They are known for having the largest brain in the world. Beluga whales, the only white-colored whales, thus also known as white whales, live in the Arctic Ocean. They live and migrate in pods. Another talent they have is being able to swim backward. More and more studies prove that whales are essential to the marine ecosphere and help maintain our earth’s health. We are some of the most intelligent and compassionate inhabitants of the ocean. We help to mitigate climate change by boosting the production of phytoplankton that absorb 40% of the CO2 in the air and release 50% of the oxygen found in our atmosphere.

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!

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 2 of 2

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 2 of 2

In this episode, I will introduce more extraordinary cool daddies in the animal world. They are all champion fathers in their own ways. The endurance winner is the emperor penguin dad, for sure! These fluffy and wobbling birds live and breed in the Antarctic landscape. In winter, after the female transfers her precious single egg to her partner, she goes to the sea straight away to replenish herself with food. To keep the egg warm in the brutal Antarctic weather, he must balance it on top of his feet and press it up against his “brood pouch,” a skin flap on his belly, and cover the egg with his plumage. Additionally, he utilizes group hugs to his advantage! Emperor penguins are famous for creating massive huddles, and these gatherings allow penguins to save energy for warming their cherished chicks that are still developing. Until the moms’ return, these dads guard their eggs alone for around 75 days. They also fast for about 120 days from the beginning of the breeding cycle, which ultimately results in their body weight being reduced by nearly half. Male Barbary macaques are perhaps the proudest animal dads. They often interact with their offspring for hours and carry them; this doting on infants includes caring for the young of others in their group, called a troop, as well. These proud dads nudge and chatter their teeth while holding up their darlings in gatherings. Sand gobies are passionate papas at the top of their game. After the eggs are laid, they defend the eggs intensively and use their pectoral fins to fan them with a motherly touch. This action creates oxygenated currents around the eggs, which encourages them to grow. Giant water bug fathers are the clear winners of the weightlifting category. The female will lay and stick her eggs on the dad’s back. A giant water bug dad can carry up to 150 eggs on him! When talking about heroic fathers, few can match the Burchell’s sandgrouse. The brave sandgrouse daddies take on a crucial mission; these frequent flyers make long daily trips to watering holes, sometimes traveling over 160 kilometers, to fill up for their families. After the little ones have their drink, the daddies immediately take sand baths, to remove the strong scent of wet feathers to deter predators. In this series, we have introduced some extraordinary paternal parenting skills in the animal kingdom, which make for a wonderful dedication to all fathers, be they human or animal.

Wings of Love, Part 1 of 2: The Romantic Bowerbird

Wings of Love, Part 1 of 2: The Romantic Bowerbird

They are among the best representatives of birds, as they have an aesthetic sense, and express their love and affection through art. There are 20 species of bowerbirds living in Australia and Papua New Guinea. With most varieties, the male builds a sophisticated structure called a bower for courtship purposes. The range of objects he gathers is amazing; fruits, flowers, feathers, and even human-made items like buttons, bottle caps, glass marbles, ballpoint pens, you name it! The male bowerbirds need to be excellent artists to win a lady's heart, as females are style-oriented and exceptionally choosy. She is the one to decide if the bower is true artwork, and, along with other factors that are considered, selects the partner with the most beautiful bower. That's why the male bowerbird makes his structure so eye-catching, so as to impress the hen initially to earn a place in the finals. Even their eggs are intricate works of art. Many human beings have been inspired to create their own artworks by observing the skillful designs of the adored bowers. A well-known American scientist, Dr. Jared Diamond, referred to the bowerbirds as the “most human-kind of all birds.” Bowerbird art has inspired humanity's contemporary art. So the bowerbird's repurposing habit has influenced people to a degree. Jane Perkins, who is known for her recycled art, has also adopted similar practices. She uses discarded materials, mostly plastic, to re-interpret masterpieces of past artists. And she named her website. “Blue Bowerbird.” Lovely! In addition, the bowerbird has inspired many plastic recycling initiatives as well. For example, Qantas Airways had the world's first-ever zero-waste commercial flight in May 2019. This event initiated the company’s mission to remove 100 million pieces of single-use plastic from flights by the end of 2021, thus reducing the inflight rubbish generated by 75%. What is the name of this noble initiative? The Bowerbird Project!

A Golden Age of Animals

00:13:50

A Golden Age of Animals

Gold-colored animals are relatively rarer, so they are admired by humans, just like the precious metal! Regarded by some as the world’s most beautiful equine, our breed is famed for our toughness, resilience, and endurance, in addition to our legendary speed and intelligence. Some of our breed looks as if they had been dipped in gold! Another animal with a radiant, golden coat is the Golden Retriever, which is one of America’s most popular dog breeds. A domestic cat known for having a golden coat is the ginger cat or tabby. The golden jewel scarab beetle of Central America is one of the world’s most brightly colored insects. The goldenrod crab spiders, native to North America, make flowers such as goldenrod and daisies their home. The Panamanian golden frog is a type of toad. This species is cherished by Panamanians and is the national animal. Banana slugs are often bright golden yellow and sometimes spotted with brown blotches, thus resembling a ripe banana.

Animals Splashing into Summer Fun

00:14:12

Animals Splashing into Summer Fun

Summer is here in the Northern Hemisphere and we elephants love playing in the water and swimming! Lots of other kinds of animals do too. You may not realize it, but we can be quite nimble in the water! Because our bodies are so big, we have enough buoyancy to stay at the water’s surface and use our powerful legs to paddle. We sometimes utilize our trunks like a snorkel to breathe in deep water. So many dogs love to have fun with water! Cute canines are crazy about water slides. Did you know that some dogs surf? They enjoy riding the waves and exhibit great balance. Generally, cats are believed to strongly dislike water, but some breeds such as the Bengal cat, Maine Coon, Turkish Angora, Japanese Bobtail, American Bobtail, Manx, Norwegian Forest Cat, American Shorthair, and Turkish Van love to get wet. Actually, pigs are superb swimmers! Pig Beach, also known as Big Major Cay, is an uninhabited island located in Exuma, the Bahamas, where 20 pigs and piglets live, surrounded by the jade-colored ocean. The pigs are very sociable, and many tourists visit this unique island and swim with them. Our next water-loving friends are the sloths, which reside in the lush and tall trees of South and Central America. Considered one of the world's slowest mammals, they are clumsy walking on the ground due to their long claws, which are around 8-10 centimeters in length. Amazingly, sloths can slow their heart to one-third of its normal rate to hold their breath underwater for an astounding 40 minutes. Also from South America is the capybara, regarded as the largest living rodent in the world. They are semi-aquatic, which means that while they live on land, they spend a lot of time in the water. These friendly beings get along extremely well with other animal species. Most cockatoos and other kinds of parrots love to have a shower. The water will hydrate their feathers, soften dust and dirt, and keep their skin healthy. When possible, Supreme Master Ching Hai loves to spend time with Her adorable, adopted birds. Here is some footage recorded when She was with them in Florida, USA. The birds happily got sprayed to cool off!

Caring for Furry Pals During a Lockdown, Part 2 of 2

"Today, Nala and I will cover more lockdown-related issues human caregivers need to be aware of concerning their beloved animal pals. I believe we also need some mental stimulation during these tough times. I think music is another good way to calm everyone down. While listening to these wonderful compositions, I am pacified and feel so relaxed. It just occurred to me that if an animal gets sick, how can the human parents help them get better?" "It’s really a challenge when furry kids fall ill during a lockdown. They should call their vet first and explain the symptoms to receive guidance on how to help. Never administer care without consulting with a veterinarian for advice as it may worsen the situation. It’s also advisable to keep a first aid kit on hand to ensure they get the help needed for timely treatment." "What if a human caregiver happens to get sick?" "In that case, they should arrange for someone else to care for their furry babies. If it’s not possible, as a precaution, they should not cuddle, pet, kiss, or share food or bedding with their four-legged kids. When lockdowns are lifted, people soon resume their normal workday routines, and their animal companions may have to make more adjustments. After the lockdown ended, I felt so down that I even lost my appetite when Mom returned to work." "That is a kind of separation anxiety. How can you prevent this from happening?" "They can start with short absences from home, gradually leaving their animal pal to spend more time alone. Other techniques include getting them to play with their toys independently or going to bed by themselves. Make sure the transition is as smooth and stress-free as possible so that the alteration isn’t too sudden. Even though lockdown measures are easing in some countries, we still cannot take it lightly. We need to take precautions to reduce our chances of being infected or spreading the virus if we want to protect our families."

Guardians of Health: Medical Detection Dogs

Guardians of Health: Medical Detection Dogs

Greetings, delightful viewers! I am Bless, a medical detection dog from Wales. The canines from Wales wish peace and wellness to all of you! We canines excel in so many things. We make our human partners happy and healthy by lowering their stress levels, brightening their mood, and lessening their blood pressure simply by being near them. We are loyal, protective, loving, and fun. Scientific studies have proven that we can even save people’s lives by alerting them of disease or a serious shift in physical condition because our keen noses can sense tiny changes in odors from their bodies. Many accredited organizations, such as Medical Detection Dogs in Milton, UK, the American Scent Dog Association in Arkansas, USA, and Dogs4Diabetics in California, USA, train canines to identify odors associated with particular diseases using reward-based methods. Dogs have learned to detect various cancers such as breast, lung, prostate, ovarian, and colorectal. In addition, we can also point out the presence of malaria in a person and signal to people certain oncoming symptoms of type 1 diabetes, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), and Addison’s disease. According to the late Dr. George Preti, a leading American scientific expert on human odors during his time, the metabolic chemicals known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) generated by cancer cells change the smell of blood and other body fluids. Dogs can pick up the signature odors of existing cancer cells. In addition to odors, we can also pick up variations in skin temperature. This means that perhaps we could determine if someone is experiencing a fever. We love humans and are always willing to help. I am very happy that we dogs can assist people with life-threatening conditions. I am proud of all the canines that have excelled in helping individuals with medical disorders to have a normal life!

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

Hoatzin: The Enigmatic Bird

00:11:05

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

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 Marvelous Abilities of Birds, Part 1 of 2

00:14:49

The Marvelous Abilities of Birds, Part 1 of 2

There have been many stages in our evolution that contributed to our ability to fly. For example, we had to develop delicate wings, strong chest muscles, and several different kinds of feathers. Humans have long admired and envied our ability to fly. They have experimented and invented all kinds of means to duplicate what we do naturally in the sky. Since we birds are often far above the ground, we needed a number of adaptations to give us great eyesight. First, we have the largest eyes in the animal kingdom, relative to body size, which helps us to have very keen vision. From the outside, our eyes may appear small, but on the inside our eyes are so big that most of us cannot move them. Among warm-blooded animals, our ability to regenerate retinal neurons is outstanding. Scientists are trying to understand how it works, and believe there may be a way to unlock this ability in humans. If so, it would open the door to treatments for a wide variety of eye diseases.

Remarkable Sharks

Welcome to our show entitled, “Remarkable Sharks.” Sharks are one of the most misunderstood animals in the world. People just do not realize that we are much friendlier than believed. We are often portrayed as a villain in the movies. Actually, we are quite a unique and fascinating species. We have existed for more than 420 million years, appearing on earth even before the dinosaurs. Also, we are very diverse, with over 500 species, and researchers believe that there may still be undiscovered varieties. The whale shark is the largest fish in the ocean, whose length can reach up to 18 meters. The smallest shark is the dwarf lantern shark, which is around 17-20 centimeters in length, as tiny as a human hand. On average, a shark can swim 32-64 kilometers per hour. We do not have bones in our bodies. Our skeleton is made of cartilage, which makes us light and flexible, and allows us to rise and sink quickly in the ocean. Sharks do not sleep the way that humans do. Some species constantly swim, even while they sleep. They keep their mouths open while moving so that oxygen-rich water can pass through the gills. Anna Breytenbach, a professional telepathic animal communicator, has made contact with the white sharks and received a message from them. She says they are “asking for peaceful coexistence.” We sharks are peaceful beings. When people swim close to our area, we just want to know who they are and feel their energy. We will leave them alone because we sense their friendly vibes. We sharks play a vital role in balancing the ocean’s ecosystem. Without sharks, the population of many ocean species would be reduced. The simple, most important way to help sharks avoid going extinct is by adopting a plant-based diet. Please be a hero for all of us animals.

The Animals Celebrate a Happy Vegan New Year!

My name is Nora, and I am a polar bear from Spirited Alaska, USA. In honor of the brand new year, the animals of our world would like to share some good news, warm wishes, and blessings with you. “We dogs are praying every day that there will soon be a vegan world! And we are doing our part to make it happen!” “Every day, we whales bless the ocean and fulfill our role in sustaining our planet.” My little cubs asked me to say “hi” and let you know that they are counting on you to do you part to save their polar habitat! “I know that 2020 is going to be a terrific year because I hear so much great news as I fly overhead!” “I live quietly in my burrow, and I didn’t know that so much was happening! This is certainly a Golden Era, and our world will soon be filled with abundance and peace. The future generations, both human and animal, will be living in a true paradise.”
