Sun bears make a fashion statement

Posted on November 13, 2009 at 12:50pm 0 Comments

Spoon+Fork, a New York City based creative service agency, is promoting sun bear conservation awareness and raising funds through a new line of tote bags it helped launch for the fashion and eco conscious consumer. The idea for the tote bags came about after sun bear expert and UFP member Siew Te Wong spoke before an audience last summer and answered someone's question, "How can people help the sun bear?"

Wong replied, “if you are rich, you… Continue

Bear Bile Tourism in Vietnam

Posted on September 10, 2009 at 7:28pm 0 Comments

There is a dirty little secret in Vietnam, and it's called Korean Bear Tourism.

ENV, a wildlife watchdog group in Vietnam, has documented busloads of Korean tourists visiting bear farms where they witness a bear bile extraction, taste bear bile wine, and buy products made from bear body parts. The tourists take the illegal products home to Korea at the end of their visit, violating international law.

ENV is working… Continue

ATTENTION ALL CREATIVE GEEKS: Without you the media won't tell the story of Miracle. She needs a face, an identity. Her story awes and inspires. Read on ...

Miracle was born on a Korean bear bile breeding farm in the spring of 2006. The farm is run by Mr. and Mrs. Lee, an aging Korean couple. Bear bile farming made them rich, but they are getting old and ill and don't want to… Continue

Bolivia has enacted the world's first law that prohibits the use of animals in circuses. Animals the world over need our help to end the abuses against them. We have the power to create change and improve their lives, as the Bolivians have demonstrated.

A small handful of countries have banned the use of wild animals in circuses, but the Bolivian ban includes domestic animals as well, making the new law in Bolivia the dawning… Continue

Tiny Bear Cubs in Loving Care

Posted on April 24, 2009 at 12:17pm 0 Comments

I love a happy wildlife rescue story! Not all rescues end happily ever after, and even this rescue story that I'm about to post has a tragic note, because the mama bear was killed to poach the baby cubs. The poachers took the twins to an illegal bile farm in Vietman. But the Environmental Police raided the bile farm and rescued the itty bitty cubs. They are now in the custody and care of loving people at Animals Asia. I thought everybody here would like to read this story of… Continue

Profile Information

What kind of geek are you?
nature geek
Why do you consider yourself a geek?
Because I'm obsessed! I'm a worldwide gypsy on an endless mission to conserve biodiversity hotspots.
How did you find out about our Geek community?
Surfing YouTube, I ran across Chris talking wildly about this network.
What are your "geeky equipment" specs?
digital video cameras, tripods and still cameras.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
a jungle woman living sustainably in the rainforest with wildlife that hasn't become extinct.
What makes you laugh?
puppies and dogs
What is the thing in life you treasure most?
What's the geekiest thing you've ever done?
a 6-day video editing marathon, working 16-hours/day in an uncomfortable chair not designed for geek work.
What do you do to entertain yourself?
hike in the forest, walk along the ocean shore and read
Favorite music, movies, books, shows, artists, games, people, events, hobbies, etc.?
If the book has excellent character development, then I'm hooked. If the movie is a well-produced documentary or historic drama with sensational costuming, I'm spellbound. Edgy artists making powerful statements for social change captivate me. I like boisterous eccentric free-thinking people and love the canine spirit.

Well I'm glad we don't dress like this anymore, but that is a personal hero of mine and a hero of my home state of South Carolina (Revolutionary War) Brigadier General Thomas Sumter.
