AUDREY AND TONY'S

The issue about Alaska, personally I think we should leave it alone. I feel that companies may promise to follow certain guidelines to not damage the area but once in there they will do damage and instead of fixing it they will pay finds and before you know it there will not remain any of the natural beauty. Many places today have already given up the natural beauty for technology and I'm not knocking technology becuase I enjoy having it but I would like to not destroy all the worlds beauty for it.
Alaska is one of the rare untouched areas and needs to remain that way. We have enough areas in the U.S. and other parts of the world that have been developed, and not many places left that are as they were centuries ago. They want to drill Alaska for the oil but do we truly need it? We have invented many things that can take the place of oil and I'm sure can continue as we have already been doing for years. If oil is that hard to get to where we should mess up Alaska than why don't we have more solar cars and why do we not come up with better subsitutes. We mostly use oil for transportation and for years people have been working to lessen our demand by carpooling, buy cars that use much less oil and gas, some places outside the U.S. even uses bikes instead of cars, plus we also have many that do jog or bike to work. Is our demand really growing?


We are making this page to voice our opinion on how we feel about animals and our world. We realize that this is the only place that we, as a people, have to call home, and we don't understand how so many can choose to destroy everything and not care. At the rate we are going soon there won't be hardly anything .. animals, plants, water, or air. And what we do have will be polluted and contaminated. How is anyone suppose to live in the world that we are now in the process of making. Before long people will be putting themselves on the endangered list..which when you think about it there is certain types of people that have been destroyed by other people look at the Native American Indian, how many tribes have been made extinct.

Everyone can do something..even if you only start at home and take care of what you have. Be kind to your pets and when having an exotic pet, read up about it and learn how to take care of it the way it needs to be care for. And if you can't take care of it give it to someone that can, it's O.K. to change your mind.And never purchase endangered species or parts of them, many tourist go to small islands and buy shells of sea turtles, remember, all sea turtles are endangered. If they can't sell them then they won't kill them.

Here is some good news!!

My page only contains animals.But as far as endangered goes 2/3's of what is on the endangered list is actually plants. Hard to believe isn't it considering just how many animals are on the list.

Right now we are in an crisis of threatened , endangered and already extinct species. With over crowding of people and so many that don't care what they do plus the people that don't mean to cause a problem but do soon our way of life will be totally changed and if we don't kill ourselves off we will be alone and only have our pictures and memories to remind us of the beauty of what we gave up and have lost. The next generations to come will think it all a myth like dragons and unicorns. They will think tigers and panda bears and all the other wonderful things that god gave us is nothing more than fairy tales .

I thought of including an extinct page( things from just this century) but even that is a very large list, plus I want to try and save what is left and not just harp on what is already dead and gone, but please don't forget what is gone, use their memories to help give what's left a chance.

These pages are my thoughts and ideas about animals and the world, sometimes I have looked up facts and have encluded these facts along with my ideas on the subject. There might be parts that you find wrong whether it was based on my idea about it or it could just be different now becuase I put the facts in a few years back and have not noticed the facts now need up dated. A new page based on tigers has just been added and I just heard there are even harsher laws to try and pervent unexperienced people from owning them.

Some of the animals that are in this site are not endangered but are exotic pets, the reason they have been put here is because with so many being pets and so many getting them in the future they could end up endangered from their now popularity.

WORLDWIDE 50,000 SPECIES GO EXTINCT EVERY YEAR!

BIG CAT RESCUE

This is a really good webpage and a must see. They are accepting donations so that they can rescue as many of the big cats as they can. But at the moment they only have enough donations to care for the ones they have and have had to turn away many that are in need of rescuing.

Many of the big cats they are carring for have had horrible lives and reading their stories was sad but eye opening to the hardship people put animals through. Even ones they consider pets.

Many links have been removed, because of moving, and lots of new and informative pages have been added. If you know a great page I should add to my links please tell me by email or by signing my guest book.

Also I would like to mention that Reptiles Mag. has been a good source of most the information that I have place here in my page, and if they had a home page I would definately place it in mine. I have had a subscription since they started and without there help I might not of been able to take as good a care of my pets that I have.

THANK YOU REPTILES MAGAZINE!!

I believe that REPTILES ONLINE is the same people as REPTILE MAGAZINE so check it out..even if it isn't it was a very good page. I am waiting for word from them to say whether they are one and the same. Believe me if you have any reptiles as pets you need to have this magazine(atleast buy the copies that deal with what you have) but its good to get them all because they have lots of good articles about various diseases that you may need to watch for.
