We really do live in an amazing age of technology that brings us news about all sorts of things going on in the world that we previously would have known nothing about. Not a huge fan of social media I still acknowledge the power of it to inform and galvanise people into action. The animals of the world have certainly known more attention with the sharing of stories around the world that highlight the plight of many species which in turn becomes concern and engagement that can help save them. Only today I read about the effort to get vet help to a critically endangered female Sumatran rhino named Puntang that desperately needed the right care to save her life. She was a rescued animal suffering from a huge abscess that threatened her life. There are only 100 of these ancient animals left so every one saved is significant. With online collaboration and teamwork a vet dentist from Thailand was flown in along with other experts in the field to assist in the delicate surgery to remove three of Puntangs teeth. She is making a great recovery thanks to on post that started it all from across the world a long way from where Puntang lives. Hats off to everyone involved.
