TryPeas: Endangered Species
An Elephant Never Forgets
0 Comments

  An elephant never forgets, and here’s something we should remember about elephants:   They are 76 times more valuable when they’re alive.   Yet many elephants face an unbelievably grim fate: slaughtered for their tusks to be sold on the black market. The killing of African elephants for ivory has been linked to organized crime and even terrorist networks. And here’s the most frightening fact of all: If these animals continue to be hunted at current rates, then in the near future, we will live in a world without elephants. In honor of World Elephant Day (Aug. 12, 2017,) please take the pledge and never forget the true value of an elephant.    TAKE ACTION FOR ELEPHANTS        Did you know that on average, an elephant is killed every 15 minutes for its ivory? But it’s not too late to turn things around. Just look at some of the recent news:   •A coalition of 14 African nations united against the ivory trade recently in a vote to close […]

Species Spotlight: Orangutan
0 Comments

by Bianca Cimini Did you know that Orangutans share 96.4% of our genes? Their name alone alludes to it – meaning “man of the forest.” Highly intelligent, they spend most of the life swinging through the treetops in tropical Asian rainforests. In fact, most of them will never even touch the ground. They are the most arboreal, meaning that they live above ground in the trees. What is most fascinating is that they do not even come down to drink from the ground, but seek water found in tree holes. When it comes to their diet – again – they find what they need up above. Fruit is an Orangutan favorite, and luckily for them, it comes in great abundance. Some of their favorites include: lychee, figs, and mangosteen. According to the World Wildlife Fund, about 104,700 Orangutans remain in the wild. Unfortunately, there are a number of risk factors that have led to this drastic incline over the years. A major concern is the loss of habitat due to […]

Stand Up for Polar Bears

by Bianca Cimini Did you know that global warming is not only a concern to our well-being, but to polar bears? As climate change continues to heat up and melt sea ice, polar bears are running out of places to live. According to the National Wildlife Federation, “U.S. Geological Survey projects that two thirds of polar bears will disappear by 2050.” The warmer weather is a serious threat to our polar friends.  Once the ice melts, many polar bears are unable to swim long distances. Many do not make it, and those who do are finding it harder to hunt and find sustenance. With seals as their main food source, without any ice caps, there aren’t any seals around for the hunt. This is especially tough for mother bears who are looking to provide for their cubs (aside from themselves).  Due to this decline in habitat, polar bears were listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act in 2008. Unless we take immediate action to reduce the impact […]
