The world of poo poo. Who would have thought it would have so many uses? From helping locate and identify wildlife, to being used in conservation research for various studies. For instance, recently researchers collected elephant poo from Africa to make DNA maps in order to help them compile info against illegal poaching. Poo is also analyzed from captive animals to help with identifying everything from reproductive cycles to stress. Some animal facilities sell or give away their poo to the community where it can be used as fertilizer.
And wildlife poo can also make a great gift!
interesting zoo poo ideas:
Art for Animals became a You Tube/Google Ad partner in August of this year (2008). And since then has earned over $2,000!
Over 25% of that was donated into several animal funds such as:
WILDLIFE DIRECT (Colobus Monkey Trust)
some others! Lets make next year ever better!
This year was rough on my personal finances due to the economy and job situations, but soon that will get better, and then even more money can go to wildlife.
(The remaining money goes into my eco travel fund and also helps me buy supplies so I can donate prints for art auctions that benefit animals. A detailed report 2008 report here:
