These two tiny Baby Squirrels are now crossing the Atlantic as I write. They are accompanying their friend Baby Hare River to their new forever home.
and this is their good friend Baby Hare River who will be making sure that they have a safe journey. River actually has a job to go to with some very important work to be done.
He has always had a close relationship with the sea and sea life. His mama would take him along the beach every morning just before dawn and sometimes they would help the waders look for invertebrates for breakfast, ofcourse mama and River and strict vegans and occasionally they would try the seaweed!
Ever since he was very tiny River has always wanted to be an ecologist and now he has nearly finished his degree. He is half way thru has his PhD studies to go and has concentrated his thesis on The Impacts of Mans’ Carelessness in the Ocean – primarily that of Preventative Petroleum Release with his speciality in ‘Assisted Bioremediation/ Biodegradation Task Force Immobilisation’.
In other words – how to combat a human-caused oil spill with the tiny and tiniest of organisms at short notice.
He has spent ages conferring with zillions of micro organisms of all types and their individual effectiveness in breaking down oil.
Some microbes have been more eager than others to get to work and he has been able to work with a very strong, albeit nearly invisible task force. They are all happy to be deployed by various methods to get to the spills fast. Some being sea bird aerial deployment, whale, shark and dolphin fast-underwater-site-release and the coral infrastructure networks release.
There is talk that maybe River will be made a professor very soon for his research breakthroughs.
River is happy to continue his work on your shelf but asks that a window be open so that he may deploy fast in an emergency situation. Just now he is busy tackling the Gulf oil spill with his army of miniscule workers and they are making good progress.
- like Baby Hare Agnethka. She is working hard to raise funds for the wildlife there.
She would love to perch on a shelf with the door ajar so that she may visit Isabella every day and explore more places.
