Meet the Animals at NC Zoo

Last summer I visited the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro. It's huge-- more than 500 acres. It took us six hours to see everything.

The habitats are really nice. It has an Africa exhibit and a North America exhibit.

Like many good zoos it is helping endangered animals and plants. The NC Zoo has been reintroducing the endangered Red Wolf to parts of North Carolina, and other conservation projects.

If you can't visit or want a quick tour, here's my video. I hope you like it.

How to Save Endangered Species

This email was sent to me from San Diego about how President Bush is not helping endangered animals at all. A lot of people are mad because George Bush is making it more difficult to save endangered plants and animals.

The story starts like this: Environmental groups filed a raft of lawsuits yesterday against the Bush administration, alleging that it fails to protect 13 imperiled species because of political meddling and other problems.

I hope the next president is a person who cares about the environment and endangered animals.

Meeting Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey

I was very excited to shake Barack Obama's hand when he came to Columbia last Sunday. It was also exciting to meet Oprah. Here's the video. Watch me get crushed by the crowd when Oprah comes over!

It was a very interesting experience to be at the football stadium with about 29,000 people. I think Barack Obama would be the best president for the environment. We need a president who really cares about the earth and all the animals. He says some good things on his web site about global warming. What do you think?

Key to Saving the Key Deer
Have you ever seen a deer that's only 3 feet tall? If you have, you've probably seen the Florida Key Deer. Florida Key Deers are one of the smallest deer in North America. They are endangered because they get hit by cars while eating trash on the side of the road. They are not endangered because of over hunting, since they are protected. People should not litter there, or the Florida key deer will go extinct. It's always important to pick up your trash.

In South America, the smallest deer in the world is the pudu. It is so small it can hide in grass!

Alerts for Birds, Endangered Animals , and CNN!

My Google alerts had more warnings about our environment today. I've posted before about how birds are disappearing. Here is what the newspaper and Audubon are saying. You can listen to some of the endangered birds here. The California Condor and Whooping Crane could be the next dodo bird.
The Endangered Species Program is going back to look at some mistakes it made. Click here and check it out. I hope the next president cares about the earth and all the animals.

Speaking of that, I did a Youtube question about the environment for the CNN debate. Did you notice that CNN had 34 Youtube questions. But not even ONE had to do with the environment, global warming or endangered animals? I didn't watch it, but saw the list. I wonder why?
