Special Edition: Traveling After COVID-19

Jenna: Welcome back to Creature Feature News, folks! AJ and I took some extra time to research and discuss a relevant and important topic for this new edition. As COVID-19 swept through the entire world, tourism, much like almost every other industry, can to a halt. Now, after months of social distancing and isolating in […]

Platypuses Hummingbirds Giraffes and Ethical Tourism

Jenna: Hi there, Fanimals! We have so many holidays to cover this week, so let’s jump right in. The most widely known holiday from these past two weeks was probably Father’s Day. We want to say “Happy Father’s Day” to all of the Fanimal fathers out there. Amazingly, LiveKindly reported that about six million dads […]

#BlackBirdersWeek Whales Goats and Vegan Cheese 

Jenna: Hi there, animal fans. Today, I am writing to you from the rainy, dreary South Carolina coast. There is nothing more that I would like right now than a warm grilled cheese, my favorite rainy day meal. Luckily, LiveKindly has compiled a list of 81 vegan cheeses that I can find at Whole Foods.  […]

Special Edition: Black Lives Matter

AJ: The Fanimal family believes black lives matter. Animal activism is a cause that includes everyone, regardless of race, sexuality, and gender. That being said, we cannot find justice for all living things, including animals, when the black community does not have justice. In this article by PETA, we are introduced to some people of […]

Gibbons Lobsters Octopuses and Roadrunners

Jenna: Love (and conservation) is in the air! These Hainan gibbons, highlighted in this Mongabay article, have paired up and given new hope to primate conservationists. Hainan gibbons are known as “the rarest primates in the world,” so this new couple brings a more positive outlook for their species’ future. The gibbons could be even […]

Orangutans Blue Bumblebees and Rhinos

Jenna: We all know about blue whales, but what about blue bees? As unbelievable as this sounds, I was introduced to these oddly-colored insects in this article by Good News Network. According to the article, scientists knew the bee existed for years, but the insect remained unspotted for a long time. After being considered extinct, […]

Hens Storks Tapirs and Whales

Jenna: It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Well, it’s kind-of both. It’s 1,000 hens flying in planes to a sanctuary in California from a farm in Iowa. Alternative Press reported on the efforts of the California sanctuary, called Animal Place, to save these hens from a closing farm. The hens will become adoptable after their […]

Flamingos Hummingbirds Pollinators Koalas and Birdwatching

Jenna: Another week has flown by, and that means more animal news for you! LiveKindly recently shared that pollinators and trees in Curridabat, Costa Rica, have been given citizenship by the mayor. The citizenship will hopefully encourage the long-term protection of these important ecosystem counterparts.  AJ: Further on tree-related stories, have you ever heard of […]

Whales Bonobos Eels and Coral Reefs

Jenna: Whale, whale, whale. We sure are happy to be back with more animal news.  AJ: Way to start us off on-topic. Whales are one of my favorite kinds of sea animals, so I was glad to see some positive news surrounding humpback whales. In many ways, the recent reduced traffic on the ocean has […]
