Music of the Spheres
In the star bright night.
The dawn mist
Over the rivers.
The sighing of the wind
In lush green meadows…
Researchers from Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill are testing the ability of drones to detect sharks in coastal waterways. Drones could eventually help alert swimmers to the presence of a shark, as well as track and study sea turtles, seals, and other marine animals.
According to Wayne Pacelle, president of HSUS and author of The Humane Economy, animal protection should not be seen as a sacrifice, but an opportunity.

In a swan’s neck, a raccoon’s hand
In the song of a thrush
In sunlight through leaves in thick, green forests
