Hey /an/, what kind of wasp is this?

Its only about the length of a fingernail, maybe a little smaller, and it hovers really well and darts around quickly.

What environmental issues have the most priority in being addressed? What careers have the most impact in improving them?

I am going into college, and I want to dedicate my life to conservation. From what I've looked into I was thinking about something in marine biology or renewable energy, but what do you guys think?

That depends a lot on where you live, the politics and local issues etc.

I'd look at renewable+reusable energy/materials. The rest should follow. There is shit like Circular economy but it's obviously not very compatible with our current models.

i'm looking into environmental science with a minor in ecological restoration. small field, however, and not many colleges have that program.

You can look at agriculture. A lot of land is taken up, alongside river, soil and air pollution from faeces and chemicals. On top of that is land degredation as the original habitat is destroyed, so you get soil erosion, desertification, nutrient poor land.

A good way to solve all these issues is with agroforestry, which reduces everything mentioned and brings back wildlife

She's medium/small sized, completely white. She's got brown/hazel eyes.

We brought her as a kitten and presumed she was a moggy, but we've been told she might be pedigree?

Guys I'm fucking panicking here. Yesterday a big ass wasp got in my room but it just up and died by itself after a while, I think it got caught in a spiderweb. Buut for a while I could hear other wasps hitting on my blinds, trying to get in. I was scared as fuck but it eventually died down.

NOW THIS MORNING I'm woken up by a number of wasps hitting on my window again. It felt like a fucking swarm, every other second I could hear their little bodies slamming against my blinds trying to find a crack. Now, I have my blinds down (even though there are opening on...

Here is my baby, Rin; my beautiful wild child.

I live in the country on a tiny lake and he's an inside/outside cat just like my others. I came home Thursday evening to find him unable to close his mouth and in obvious pain, so we went straight to the vet.

Never had to deal with broken bones, but my indoor/outdoor cat has had some pretty horrific injuries and come out looking fine in the end. They heal amazingly well. The main issue is typically the cost of fixing them up.

The vets have mentioned this but it's good to hear it again. I know I shouldn't be this scared of losing him, but he just turned 2 and there's still so many more years for him.

I've already put $900 into him and that's without surgery. I'm only thankful...

What's up guys, it was my brother's birthday today and my mom is getting me and him a bearded dragon. Is there anything I should know? I hear mealworms' exoskeleton is hard to digest and my mom has a crippling fear of roaches, so I guess we'll be feeding them cricket's and bop choi.

op here again, i'm thinking of building a 72 x 36 x 36 plywood tank for these with a custom background like pic related. How many beardeds can fit in the 72 x 36 x 36 tank? I'm thinking of only having one male and multiple females
>>
Lighting is pretty simple; one fluorescent UV bulb, preferably the long tube style and not the compact ones One basking bulb. There is nothing special about basking bulbs pet stores sell. An incandescent from hardware store of appropriate wattage works just fine.

Recommend you do not attempt keeping a colony. Learn the animal first, get some experience. Don't breed. There are enough bearded dragons and you won't make any money anyway.
>>
>>2138310
Also, no night light necessary if you room temp is mid 70's. If it's below that, use a ceramic heat emitter as your basking heat source and leave it on 24/7. Those night lights are garbage.

Hi /an/ I found these four (4) cats under my porch, and they seem to have their eyes infected, from what I can tell, they are couple of weeks old and still on breastfeeding. What should I do, taking them to a vet is my last resort since they are stray cats, and I'd like to help them. Anyone has experienced this with their cats before? Pls help ;_;

Should adult dogs with human aggression immediately be put down, or are there effective interventions to make them less terrible?

Define what you mean by it OP. There are so many variables, it's difficult to give a simple answer.

Tries to murder everyone but the owner.
>>
>>2137504
Hard to say for even that. Are we counting dogs that would attack intruders or in general just 'everyone aggressive?
I think a dangerous dog can still be the owners perfect pet. Like the dog is totally fine except for other people and if the owner has kept it under control, hasn't attacked anyone, properly fenced in, etc then I think it'd be really shitty to take that away from them. You can't just force into people's homes to evaluate their dogs and the way we judge dog aggression is pretty vague. A dog expressing any concern even without snapping or growling could deem them unadoptable, for example(such as shoving a hand on a stick in their face in a stressed or environment).

But for dogs in general I'd like to be somewhat of something more organized or 'educational' aside from letting people just waltz in and bring home any puppy from a store. I wonder if there is even 'free training' events or something.
