Hey everyone. I just got this vulture in. Haven’t done an exam on him yet (waiting on an extra pair of hands) but it sounds like he was grounded in a neighborhood in Greenville for about 5 days. He will most likely require care from someone who knows more about vultures. The problem is, we cannot afford to transport this guy right now. We need help! Many of you know that we do this work voluntarily and pay for everything out of pocket. If you can, please consider donating to our rescue! This vulture really needs your help! You can donate any amount of money through Paypal, to the email address: roverage@hotmail.com!

If all of my followers donated just 50 cents it would be more than enough to pay for this bird to get the help he needs! Please donate! 

Thank you to everyone who reblogged!

Unfortunately we have still only received $3 to help this guy out!

This is not enough to get the vulture the care he needs! Please help!

I was finally able to do an examination on him and discovered a compound fracture in his left wing elbow joint. This is a serious injury - especially since it is 5 days old now, and he is severely emaciated because of it!

Listen guys, I know it isn’t the usual ‘cute’ animal that is fun to reblog and support. Like a kitten or a dog. But every animal deserves a happy, healthy live. this guy is suffering with pain and starvation and he needs help.

Reblog and donate if you can. It won’t even take that much.

Ka-Pow: Watch These Fish Cannons Shoot Salmon Safely Over Dams

Salmon have serious swimming skills—some travel thousands of miles to return to their original homes to breed. But even though they can jump as high as 12 feet in the air, they can’t manage to get over massive concrete dams that we have built to block their journeys back to their homes. Now one new idea could give them a boost. The plan involves whisking the fish through a long vacuum tube at speeds up to 22 miles per hour and then shooting them out the other end like a cannon.
