Did you know there are effectively less than 14 Amur tigers (also known as Siberian tigers) in the wild?
Although there are some 500 Amur tigers actually alive in the wild, their genetic material is of such low diversity that scientists say it’s as if there were just 14.
How would you feel if you were talking, but nobody in the world could hear you? Sadly, this is what’s happening to the loneliest whale in the world. She sings at about 52Hz, while all other whales do so in 15-25Hz range. She’s saying “Hello, I’m out here,” but nobody’s answering. You can hear her calls here.
Also, a short but effective guide on how to make your own organic liquid fertilizer. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.
These ‘studies’ on what women find most attractive on men always crack me up. They “place significantly greater importance on altruistic traits that anything else”. Apparently it pays to be selfless. Good to know.
Lastly, a video of a much more endangered animal than Amur tigers: Javan Rhino. It’s believed just 40 of them are still alive. None of them in captivity.
