Wildlife Watching In Scotland

Wildlife
It’s tempting for a visitor to think that they can just turn up in the wilderness on Scotland and see some of its iconic wildlife. Below are some tips before you plan for a trip: What makes Scotland a Special Place for Watching Wildlife? There’s no question that Scotland is a haven for wildlife. Its range of habitats together with the remoteness of large areas of the country has meant that many species have hung on here when they have become extinct elsewhere in the United Kingdom. Otters, golden eagles, wildcats, capercaillie and red kites are just some of the species which live here. There are four reasons Scotland is appealing for visitors keen to see some wildlife: - The scenery - Scotland’s forests, mountains and coast are not only spectacular but internationally known

How To Make Rabbit Cage, Custom Cage For Bunnies

Wildlife
Many rabbit cages in the market are very small, and a bunny in a tiny cage is a very bored bunny. Sometimes it's not possible to allow a pet rabbit to roam-free in the house due to hazards, such as other household pets like dogs and cats. One great way to give them the space they need is to make them a custom homemade cage. Build a Custom Rabbit Cage Purchase wire shelving. The wire squares are perfect for rabbit cage walls. The included connectors can be used, but many people just use zip ties. A basic rabbit space can be made 4 squares long, 2 squares wide, and at least 2 squares tall.

European Researcher Creates Virtual Reality For Lab Animals It is yet to be understood whether mice are afraid of heights or else what is their main concern while reciprocating to the social environment. It is still not very well known how the brains of freely moving animals work in social situations. Well, in this era of virtual reality there's some hope to dig deeper into the social behavior of the pets. European researchers at the Vienna Biocenter in Austria are trying to find such answers and obviously would be able to learn the behavior of the animals, possibly. They have created a virtual-reality rig for lab animals and have dubbed it nicely as FreemoVR. Computer displays have been used to build walls and floors of the virtual set-up, and the researchers have mounted abo...
Protecting Bird Habitats Across America

Protecting Bird Habitats Across America

Wildlife
Statistical evidence highlights just how significant the decline is in a huge number of birds across America, and the biggest reason for this is the decline of habitat across the country. There are some quite terrible facts that are such clear indicators of where we have gone wrong. The industrialization of the world has lead to wonderful things but it has also put our entire eco system under strain. At present, we have lost over 290 million acres of grasslands across the country, which in total is the equivalent of 130 Yellowstone National parks! You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand what that means for a huge range of different bird species. Thankfully, there are conservancy companies doing great things to try to reduce the impact these changes have made, with huge
