Zoo-notable: Animals in Translation

Looking at those animals I realized that none of them would even exist if human beings hadn’t bred them into being. And ever since that moment I’ve believed that we brought these animals here, so we’re responsible for them. We owe them a decent life and decent death, and their lives should be as low-stress as possible.

National Zookeeper Week

Happy National Zookeeper Week, to all animal care professionals. I admit, I still consider myself a zookeeper, always and forever. This week I celebrate my fifteen years as a dedicated animal trainer and caretaker. I also celebrate how with ZooFit, I incorporate all the principles of zookeeping to help others achieve success in whatever their goals may be.

International Save the Vaquita Day

What is the most endangered marine mammal in the world? It’s the adorable vaquita porpoise, with a depressingly low population of as few as 10 individuals. If any animal needs a day for raising awareness, it’s the vaquita. Luckily, today is International Save the Vaquita Day. And I wanted to share a super fast ZooFit awareness challenge to honor these “pandas of the sea.”

We can achieve success if we are willing to put in the work. The work can be a bit overwhelming at times. Today I’m going to try to break the process of creating systems down, making it not only easier, but way more fun.

How to Eat Challenge- Week 2

Honestly, I thought I’d be writing a lot more about How to Eat, but this week has shown me how exhaustingly busy I make myself. Ideas for blog posts get pushed to the back-burner and I feel I’m constantly short on time while overwhelmed with material and things to do. But none of that really has much to do with the How to Eat Challenge, or how Week 2 went…

Zoo-notable: The Big Thing

Right before the world shutdown and everything closed, I was fortunate enough to visit a library and picked up a small stack of books which piqued my interest. Most of these books were about writing or the creative process, and through the shelter-in-place period in April and May, I read most of these books. They were mostly inspiring and definitely pertinent to my writing life.
