Puppets For Pleasure

Puppets for Pleasure - a term coined by Lara Mostert.  During the World Travel Market in Africa, held in Cape Town during April 2015, Lara Mostert was invited to do a talk on Responsible Tourism from the view point of an Animal Sanctuary.  Lara Mostert spoke about the fact that at some sanctuaries/zoo's/animal parks/etc people are allowed to interact with animals.  Posing with them for photos, walking them on leashes as if they where domesticated dogs, riding them and more.  The way these animals are treated make them nothing more but Puppets for Plesure.  

If you would like more information on the coinage Puttes for Pleasure please feel free to contact Lara Moster on lara@monkeyland.co.za or watch her full presentation here:

Phylogenetics

In biology, phylogenetics is the study of evolutionary relatedness among groups of organisms (e.g. species, populations), which is discovered through molecular sequencing data and morphological data matrices. The term phylogenetics derives from the Greek terms phyle (φυλή) and phylon (φῦλον), denoting “tribe” and “race”; and the term genetikos (γενετικός), denoting “relative to birth”, from genesis (γένεσις) “origin” and “birth”.
