Cats are among the world’s most beautiful animals, ranging from the powerful tiger to an affectionate tabby. Cats are diverse, adapting to their environment, whether it’s a jungle or a small house. This adaptability makes them ideal pets, and they fill our lives with joy and fond memories.
Christmas is a time for festive spirit and family bonding. It doesn’t have to be a human celebration, as staff at London Zoo were keen to show when they gave gifts to some of the animals. On Thursday the 15th December, six-month-old Sumatran tiger cubs Achilles and Karis recieved a pile of gifts to open.
As the population has grown, we’ve urbanised the world around us, changing the way animals live. In the final episode of Planet Earth II, David Attenborough focuses on cities and the kind of animals you can find close to home.
In a field of gold
sun light trickles from dappled fur
padding among reeds
radar ears alert to every sound
tiny feet tripping on wire
leap with God’s grace
and turn up empty-pawed
dust off disappointment
there’s always next time.
Grasslands cover much of the earth and provide a home to many species of animals. From towering elephants to tiny field mice, the grass supports a range of life. In this week’s Planet Earth II, David Attenborough shows us what it takes to survive in these unique environments.
Survival is the most important thing in the animal world, and that is made clear in the latest episode of Planet Earth II. The documentary focused on deserts and why they are extreme environments to live in. The episode kicked off with a tense confrontation between desert lions and a giraffe.
Half way through the series, and Planet Earth II continues to impress with amazing visuals and unforgettable sights. This week, David Attenborough took viewers into the jungle to see how animals fight to survive. The opening shot revealed an Indri leaping through the tree tops of Madagascar. Indri are the largest lemurs on the planet, and listening to the mournful song of the female was a great way to set the tone for the program.
Last week, David Attenborough introduced us to some of the remotest habitats on the planet with the first episode of Planet Earth II. This week his focus is on mountains, where only the hardiest of animals can survive. The program opened with stunning snow-capped vistas and the appearance of a snow leopard.

Banding together to help animals is a rewarding and worthwhile experience. It’s a chance to make a difference and protect rare species who are on the brink of being wiped out. But it doesn’t have to be one person’s fight. There’s power in the united voice and that’s where We Love Our Planet comes in. The Manchester based organisation was created out of a concern for the welfare of animals and their environment.
