December 22, 2009, Huntington, NY - Little Shelter Animal Rescue & Adoption Center www.littleshelter.com, one of Long Island's oldest no-kill shelters dedicated to saving all companion animals in need, announced today a Holiday Donation Drive.  Little Shelter is under financial pressure and must cut back on services for needy animals due to a 30% decrease in donations, the 2009 closing of two Long Island shelters (Bide-A-Wee in Wantagh and Animal Haven in Flushing), and the bad economy, unemployment and foreclosures causing more animals to be surrendered to the shelter.

Whale Mass Stranding Attributed to Sonar Mapping For First Time

Investigation of 2008 melon-headed whale stranding in Madagascar conducted by independent review panel NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- An independent scientific review panel has concluded that the mass stranding of approximately 100 melon-headed whales in the Loza Lagoon system in northwest Madagascar in 2008 was primarily triggered by acoustic stimuli, more specifically, a multi-beam echosounder system operated by a survey vessel contracted by ExxonMobil Exploration and Production (Northern Madagascar) Limited.
