Big cats, elephants and dogs

Among my favourite animals are the big cats so next Sunday’s Nature’s Miracle Babies on BBC1 at 6.30pm will be of particular interest as it features amur leopards.

Also in the programme Martin Hughes-Games visits an elephant orphanage in Nairobi.

I know that elephants are a favourite of many of us and next Wednesday on BBC2 at 8.00pm the excellent Natural World programme Echo – An Unforgettable Elephant is being shown again.

Don’t forget that for baby animals of every sort, and links to zoos around the world, the excellent ZooBorns is the site to look at.

For everyone who loves dogs this really is such a wonderful article.

Have a good weekend!

  1. I love to see ‘working’ dogs, I know they did a sterling job, but don’t they all look old – sad to think that some of them have already died. Definitely canine heroes.

      Elaine me too! Sadly ten years is a long time in a dog’s life. The word hero is much over used nowadays but in this case it’s definitely the right one. xx

    Thanks for the heads up about Echo – I love elephants πŸ™‚ I read the Canine Heroes article after your Tweet, it’s a wonderful tribute to our Canine Friends.

    Oh, those wonderful dogs. I have a golden lab and she’d be useless unless the victims were waving food in the air!! I wonder if there will be a calendar seeing as there are 12 dogs left?

    I shall definitely try to catch both those programmes, I love elephants. What a wonderful, touching article about the dogs involved with 9/11.

    Darling site, that ZooBorns! Emmaline often sits just like that Cavy is on the ZooBorn page — with her front paws crossed. Hope you have a lovely weekend! We’re in a heat wave now and hope to cool down a bit soon.

    …enjoyed catching up with your posts, Flighty, and so happy to hear your Horticultural show went off well thanks to the members and volunteers such as yourself. Here we are already into September with much harvesting going on. Our weather is glorious ~ yahoo! Love your links πŸ™‚

    I watched Nature’s Miracle Babies this evening. Weren’t they all gorgeous? But why did they have to go and put a dampener on things right at the end?

    • Flighty says:

      Donna me too, and they sure were! Sadly that’s seems all too typical nowadays and I guess that it’s all to do with what they call getting the balance right, which of course they don’t! xx
