ANIMALS IN NEED OF FOOD! PLEASE SHARE, OUR HOPE IS THAT OTHER SANCTUARIES WILL STEP UP AND HELP PROVIDE IMMEDIATE RELIEF.
Urgent plea from the Director of the Kharkiv Zoo in the Ukraine.
The animals are left to starve to death in Ukrainian zoo as their Government has cut off their funds to divert the money to the political unrest that is currently gripping the country.
The Director of the Zoo, Alexey Grigoriev, is making a public appeal to please get the word out and is asking for urgent help to save these animals. They are no longer getting donated food. The situation is quite desperate. Most zoos, during times of civil unrest in many countries, get de-funded as funds are usually diverted for military aid; many animals are usually put down. However, this zoo director is taking the compassionate step of publicly asking the global community for help for the animals.
We would like to ask if any sanctuaries can at all make any arrangements with the zoo, to please contact the zoo.
Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.
Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.
Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.
