Learn About Endangered Species

Travel Tips - Shelia - October 20, 2021

Most people don’t think about plants and wildlife often, if at all, but they are vital to a balanced natural world. Unfortunately, many species of plants and wildlife are threatened or in danger of becoming extinct. Many factors have contributed to the demise of animals, including loss of habitat and hunting to produce commercial goods. However, more efforts are being made to protect these species. These are a few of the incredible animals being threatened today.


The endangered Red List of Threatened Species, which was published by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, includes the tiger. In Asia, their habitat has shrunk to approximately four percent of its original size. Russian tigers are also threatened by poaching and logging.

Today, tiger hunting is illegal, and the species has started a slow recovery. You can learn more about tigers and their conservation efforts by visiting a reserve and learning about tiger conservation Smith County.


On the island of Madagascar, you can find a somewhat creepy little primate called the aye-aye. These nocturnal four-pound animals have big eyes and a long middle finger and live in the canopy, but their appearance at dusk in cemeteries, where they find the grubs they eat, has made them an omen of bad luck for the native people.

In 1933, it was thought that the aye-aye was extinct, but nine of these elusive animals were found in 1957. Due to deforestation and hunting, these animals are at risk of extinction. Today, aye-ayes are protected by law, and 50 have been relocated to zoos and breeding programs around the world.

Darwin’s Fox

Darwin’s fox is only found on the island of Chiloe and in the Nahuelbuta National Park in Chile. This carnivore has dark firm and legs and is most active during twilight and at dawn. Habitat loss, hunting and the introduction of nonnative domestic dogs has severely reduced its population.

Unfortunately, despite conservation efforts, the Darwin’s fox population continued to decline, placing it on the critically endangered list until 2016. Although it has been moved to the endangered list, less than 1,000 foxes are thought to live in the area.

If you want to learn more about endangered species, consider visiting a reserve or contacting a conservation nonprofit organization.

Hunting Preparation Tips

Travel Tips - Shelia - June 29, 2021

If you are a hunter, you know that a successful hunt requires more than just going out during the season and finding your prey. It requires careful preparation and planning, some of which occurs well before the season begins. No matter what type of animal you hunt, you need to be well prepared. These are a few tips to help you get ready for hunting season.

Purchase Your License

Your first step should be researching your state’s regulations. You need to understand these regulations before you apply for and purchase your license. Your state’s regulations change may change every season, from dates to limits on the number of animals you can take. To get the most out of your hunt, review these changes and purchase the number of licenses you need or are allowed. Make your purchase well before the season starts, especially if you seek an out-of-state license. You want your license in hand, not in the mail, the day the season starts.

Gather Your Hunting Gear

Prepare for comfort and survival during your hunting trip. For example, research the clothing needs for your area, such as “hunting clothes Canada,” so you stay comfortable. Pack extra clothing, especially socks, in case you get wet. Include proper boots; you may even include waders if you plan to cross any creeks. Make sure to include your bright orange and reflective gear so other hunters can see you easily.

Check, repair, clean and sight-in your weapons. Include at least one very sharp knife. Purchase extra ammunition if you will use a gun and additional bowstrings and arrows for bow hunting.

In your survival kit, add a lighter, flashlight, GPS, extra batteries and a first aid kit. You may also include a headlamp and hunting blind. Consider purchasing a solar charger so you can keep your cell phone and other small electronics charged. You should also pack easy-to-carry food, such as freeze-dried meals. Don’t forget water or a straw or bottle that treats and filters water.

Scout Your Hunting Land

If you plan to hunt on private land, contact the landowner and gain permission. Whether you plan to hunt on public or private land, you should scout the land. Research the land online by looking for topographical maps and aerial photos.

Then, in the summer, spend time getting to know the topography and any dangers. Also, look for areas where the animals will bed down, such as areas where their food is plentiful. Look for deer trails. You may also add trail cameras at various locations so you can watch how the wildlife use the land. Identify the locations you want to set up your blind on a map.

If you plan to hunt, consider purchasing quality gear and prepare in advance for hunting season.
