Prof. Noltie left the seining nets on the top of his truck for me while he’s in a conference yayyy gonna get my fishies today.
… though I may or may not be too short to reach the top of his truck I don’t want to ask someone for help to get them down fufuucucckkk
This is making me really sad
Holy shit I didn’t realize there were that few tigers
PROTECT BIG CATS AT ALL COST
I remember seeing a documentary some time ago about declining tiger populations. Although I can’t remember the name of it (or the network), I did find this link which includes lack of prey animals, shrinking habitats, and extremely compromised genetic diversity among the major causes.
And cheetahs are basically clones of each other anymore.
It’s true that Cheetahs are essentially clones of each other. Just to further elaborate on that,they’re so genetically identical that they can accept skin grafts from each other, because the animal’s cells identify the skin as its own. However, this isn’t something that has occurred within the last 50 years for Cheetahs and isn’t at fault of human influence. Cheetahs become this way due to a genetic bottleneck that is estimated to have occurred at the end of the Pleistocene period, some 10,000 years ago during a time of massive extinction of a great many number of land vertebrates. Cheetahs are kinda remarkable in the fact that they’ve survived this long despite their lacking in genetic diversity!
And then along came humans.
To elaborate on those numbers for tigers, I believe that’s referring to their collective numbers. Many subspecies have already gone extinct, or are only alive in captivity, and are therefore functionally extinct.

those people that u love so much and want to talk to them all the time but u feel like ur annoying them
Chances are that two people who reblogged this were thinking about each other
the thing about the ultimate cosmic meaninglessness of man is that you can either wallow in your insignificance and the attendant pain that brings in a culture so obsessed with fame and being important,
or you can fall in love with literally everything and everyone in a dozen small ways because everything still exists despite the statistical unlikelihood of it all and that’s a goddamn miracle
I need to learn to let things go. Holding on to these things will only bring about regrets that I will never be able to mend. There is absolute forgiveness, and then there is moving on. They are not the same.
I will not overlook what was said and done, and I will not forget. Things will never be the same, but that doesn’t mean I should continue to let this negativity fester. I can learn from it, grow, and allow myself the peace of mind I deserve.
i thought this was another long dumb post but OH MY GOD. just when you’re about to lose hope in humanity, something like that comes up..
