During an annual speedboat race in Florida, two sea turtles were immortalized while ther have shared a kiss captured by the cameras with the crowd. Florida police seized the moment during the 36th annual Sarasota Powerboat race.
The photo was taken by agent Kevin Campbell, who shared the post on Facebook. Police Department marine unit was patrolling the water to protect marine life during the event when officers took a photo of the turtles. The boat races took place near the Big Sarasota Pass off Lido Key last weekend as part of the Suncoast Summer Fest, which raises money for local charities.
Police were also present to watch over the marine fauna and protect it from the presence of boats. And this is how the chance encounter with the sweet couple of turtles started.
UK: new restrictions on zoos and live animal exports!
UK: new restrictions on zoos and live animal exports! The new Animal Welfare Bill introduces a series of measures: with the fight against smuggling of puppies and the ban on exporting live animals destined for slaughter or for slaughter.
The measures focus on smuggling of puppies, export of live animals destined for slaughter, ban on keeping primates as pets, more protection for farm animals and improvement of standards in zoos. The export of animals destined for slaughter or fattening is still a widespread practice in Europe and the rest of the world.
UK government has announced that it will actively work to put a stop to the unethical trade and smuggling of puppies by reducing the number of pets that are allowed to be transported. In addition, further restrictions on the movement of pets will be introduced for reasons related to their welfare.
There are those who keep monkeys at home as they do with dogs or cats. The new bill approved in Great Britain provides for a ban on raising these animals in the home to let them free in their habitats or in structures that guarantee high standards of well-being.
Thanks to the new bill, the Zoo Licensing Act will be amended to improve zoo regulations and ensure that zoos do more to contribute to the conservation of the various species.
