Sustainable Cities Work for Climate Change

To survive on this planet at the numbers we have amassed, cities must more efficiently support their human habitants, especially with persistent constraints on water, land, and food.

From Farm To Freedom, Meet Smudge The Rescued Bear Cub

Prepare yourself for the unbearable cuteness that is Smudge, a rescued bear cub from Nanning, China.

Not only does the sight of Smudge horsing around make our hearts melt, but she is also one of over 130 moon bears who have been rescued from a bile farm as part of a new campaign from Animals Asia, called Peace by Piece.

While living on the farm, Smudge and the other bears were reportedly kept in terrible conditions — many trapped in small cages from birth — and farmed for their bile. Despite farming for many years, the farmer had a change of heart when his daughter convinced him of the cruelty of the trade.

The campaign will convert the farm into a bear sanctuary and education center. Additionally, Animals Asia will lease the farm’s land and facilities and provide meaningful jobs to the farm’s nine existing workers.

This will be the largest rescue of its kind in the world — put your paws up for that.
