photos from edgar’s mission animal rescue sanctuary in vctoria, australia of leon trotsky, a piglet who suffered a broken pelvis, and frosty the snow goat, who lost the use of his back legs from a debilitating and life threatening condition known as joint naval ill. with use of the training wheels seen here, both were able to get around while they healed and ultimately (as evidenced in the last photos) recovered.

I literally had to bite something not to scream

photos by michal cizek (1,3,5,7,9) of kijivu, a western lowland gorilla, with her two day old baby at the zoo in prague; and fredrik von erichsen (2,4,6,8) of rebecca and her three day old daugher at the frankfurt zoo.

with less than 800 mountain gorillas and only 2500 eastern lowland gorillas left in the world, gorilla populations are now so low that birthing programs such of these are needed to ensure sufficient genetic diversity of the species.
