  • Wildlife officials remind public that young wildlife rescues often do more harm than good

    first_imgPhoto from Getty Images As young animals are born this spring, biologists remind the public that they should resist the urge to “rescue” young wildlife, as that often does more harm than good. “Young wildlife belongs in the wild, and even the most well-intentioned attempt to care for them often results in an unwanted outcome,” the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation said in a press release. Weston announces ‘Slay at Home’ speaker series Christian Lewis, a long-distance hiker from South Wales, set off nearly three years ago on a quest to hike 8,700 miles of the British coastline. He gave up his home and has no money to speak of—a scenario that worked just fine for him until the coronavirus stopped him in his tracks.  Young wildlife removed from the wild are denied important natural learning experiences that help them survive, the release said. Even if these animals are eventually returned to the wild, their chances of survival are reduced. It is also illegal to take young wildlife from the wild or keep them as pets.  Dreaming of a better place to face coronavirus isolation? This hiker found himself on a deserted Scottish island The speaker series is open to the public. Anyone interested can tune in on Facebook Live or join the conversation on Zoom. Snowboard, splitboard and ski brand Weston has launched an online speaker series for splitboarders who are isolated at home but want to continue to build their skillsets. Every Friday night at 6pm MST, Weston will discuss topics such as the best ways to prepare for upcoming splitboarding seasons during their “Slay at Home” speaker series. Lewis could have been in trouble, stranded on the Shetland islands with just a flimsy tent, but thanks to the kindness of strangers, Lewis found himself holed up in a tiny cottage on an island he has all to himself. A local fisherman brings Lewis water and he forages for his food. “It is just super. I couldn’t be in a better place for a lockdown,” Lewis told CNN.last_img read more

  • Ince in line for Swans talks

    first_imgTom Ince is set to hold talks with Swansea over an initial loan move from Blackpool, Press Association Sport understands. Any deal would see a fee paid to take Ince on loan until the end of the season, when a permanent switch could be completed once his Blackpool contract comes to an end. Ince, whose father Paul was sacked as Blackpool manager last week, had been reportedly set to join Monaco earlier in the January transfer window, but a move to the Ligue 1 club did not materialise. The Seasiders had confirmed Ince would hold talks over a move to the top-flight in a club statement which read: “Blackpool Football Club can confirm that, following discussions with Thomas Ince and his representative, permission has been given for Thomas to discuss a loan move to a Premier League club. “Thomas has expressed his ambition to play in the Premier League for the remainder of the season, a decision that the club fully understands and supports.” Swansea’s Welsh rivals Cardiff agreed an £8million fee for Ince last summer, but the player eventually turned down a move to Cardiff City Stadium. The winger is expected to arrive in south Wales on Monday afternoon after the Seasiders gave the England Under-21 international permission to discuss a switch to the Liberty Stadium. Other clubs are also keen to sign Ince, with Crystal Palace believed to be among them, who is out of contract in the summer. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
