Endangered Animals Feature III: Blue WhaleSorry for the short break in the features - they're back on track now!KiwiCocktail
Welcome to the third part of the Endangered feature series for Unframed-Nature!
Previous parts: Snow Leopard | African Wild Dog
Endangered animal: Blue Whale
These massive whales are the world's largest mammals. They are found in all oceans with the exception of the Arctic ocean, and they are the largest in the Antarctic, where they can grow up to 110 ft (33 m).
The species was a major target for whaling from 1868 to 1966, and their population is estimated to have decreased 70-90 % during this time. Since then they have been slowly growing in numbers, as they are currently not threatened by any major factors globally. However, ship strikes and entanglements that kill or damage the whales are very frequent in some areas, and the effects of modern
Animal Welfare I: Shelter DogsWelcome everyone, to this brand new feature series for Unframed-Nature! It is a pleasure to introduce you to some shelter animals and success stories! There is also more to come after that and we'd be very happy if you returned for our future articles!Unframed-Nature
There are actually quite a few members on our Team here at Unframed-Nature who volunteer at their local shelters, so the topic of animal welfare is very close to our hearts. We know there are more enthusiasts like us in the world and hope you're one of them!
Here are links to several shelters which we recommend. If you have any of your own, please send us a link and we'd be happy to add them to the list!

Endangered Animals Feature II: African Wild DogThis is the second part of the Endangered Animals feature series for Unframed-Nature.KiwiCocktail
Previous part: Snow Leopard
Endangered animal: African Wild Dog
Recognized by their distinct, colorful fur, the African Wild Dogs have disappeared from many parts of Africa. They used to be seen largely over the continent, but are now only found in its southern parts as well as the south of East Africa.
The population of these canines is continuously declining because of conflict with human activities, which causes both accidental and targeted killings, as well as habitat fragmentation and infectious diseases amongst their packs.

Also known as: Painted Dog, Cape Hunting Dog
IUCN status: ENDANGERED

Awesome ABSTRACTS of Autumn CONTEST Results!TeaPhotography
:iconautumntree3plz: Unframed-Nature's BIG CONTEST Rusults:
"Awesome ABSTRACTS of Autumn!" :iconautumntree3plz:
We had exactly 66 truly brilliant entries!
We had 10 incredible judges.
We did not only have these ten judges, but they were ten genuinely awesome, and talented people on the judging panel, who took this on in a way I've never experienced from a total group of judges in general.
They took it on like a project that they were either already familiar with, or one that would be an opportunity to research and learn a lot from. Either way they took quite a bit of time with this contest, a few took a lot of time with it throughout the contest, studying and following it closely. Either way, in the end, each judge made educated choices based
The October Project (TOP) by Celo99Hey this is :iconcelo99: celo99 taking over Eve's journal!TheGalleryOfEve
As society continues to change and many become more focused on how they look, act, et cetera, one thing that is becoming more consistent is bullying- bullying in the work place, bullying at home, bullying at school... it happens everywhere. Even online. Many deviants find themselves at times turning to the deviantArt community for coping, but bullying takes place, here, as well. The one place someone may find comfort becomes a place of dread and hate. This is where The October Project, or TOP comes in.
The purpose of TOP is to encourage and help other deviants. There are several different activities involved with TOP one can participate in, but here are the main ones.
The first and most important activity is the pledge- it's something of a non-verbal pledge to oneself to just try and lend a hand to anyone seen suffering in the DA community, and not just because of bullying. It can be an
