Wolverines found to be more numerous in the United States than thought



According to an article entitled, "Wolverines Stage a Comeback" which you can read by clicking on the following link: http://www.voanews.com/english/news/usa/places/Wolverines-Stage-a-Comeback-117578674.html, scientists are finding more evidence of an increase in the population of Wolverines in the United States. This certainly is  good news if you love animals! Wolverines are such an elusive animal it is difficult for scientists to get a good indication of their population numbers throughout the entire World. Hopefully these populations of Wolverines will keep increasing in the United States so that these amazing animals will continue to roam the lands of many different countries. By sheer coincidence it is interesting that at the present time I am reading a book about Wolverines entitled, "The Wolverine Way", by Douglas H. Chadwick. Mr. Chadwick is a wildlife biologist by profession and his book is extremely interesting and informative! I highly recommend this book!

Thank you for posting the 'comeback of the wolverine' blog notes. The 'comeback' of any furry creatures on this planet is a miracle in itself and, of course, I LOVE wolverines. Am pleased to find out other people care about them too. And thanks for the beautiful photograph of the lovely snowy wolverine.

Thoughts worth thinking about

"Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives."-Sidney Madwed



Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every woman and man present their views without penalty, there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.- Albert Einstein Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. - Leo Buscaglia



A person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world. - Mohammed



Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. -Albert Einstein



The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others. - Ghandi



The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves. - Helen Keller



Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make yourself a happier and more productive person. - Dr. David M. Burns



Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures. -His Holiness The Dalai Lama



Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it. -



Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being



The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity. -George Bernard Shaw

Ego's trick is to make us lose sight of our interdependence. That kind of ego-thought gives us a perfect justification to look out only for ourselves. But that is far from the truth. In reality we all depend on each other and we have to help each other. The husband has to help his wife, the wife has to help the husband, the mother has to help her children, and the children are supposed to help the parents too, whether they want to or not.-Gehlek Rinpoche Source: "The Best Buddhist Writing 2005 pg. 165

The hostile attitude of conquering nature ignores the basic interdependence of all things and events---that the world beyond the skin is actually an extension of our own bodies---and will end in destroying the very environment from which we emerge and upon which our whole life depends.
