Cecil The Lion Shall Live On As A ‘Beanie Baby’ With All Profits Going To Wildlife Conservation


The news of the tragic loss of life of Cecil the Lion, caused by trophy hunter Walter Palmer, is still fresh among us. Upset, anger and disbelief has been shown from all over the world. But in the aftermath of the tragedy, a few positive things have followed. We're not just talking the countless tributes made by kind people, or even the stunning display of endangered animals on the Empire State building, now there is even a plush toy coming to light! Going on sale in September retailing at around $5.99, all of the profits from sales will be going to the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit of the University of Oxford in England, which holds the group of researchers that were studying Cecil. It's nice to see people everywhere can come together in positive ways through dark times.

Animals Displaying Human Emotions By Photographer Vincent Lagrange   Sometimes, animals can appear incredibly human in their body language and, particularly, in their facial expressions.

Photographer Vincent Lagrange from Antwerp, Belgium, was inspired by his cat Dwiezal to create a series of wonderful photographs he calls 'Human Animal'. "I tried to photograph the animals as humans, depicting their emotion and human-like characteristics in a somber way," Lagrange told Yatzer. Check it out. These animals all look so serious, it's funny! Website: finni.be   finni.be   finni.be   finni.be   finni.be   ...
