As temperatures rise to unsustainable heights and ecosystems buckle under the weight of climate change, it’s increasingly easy to succumb to paralysis. But, if we look at the world through a different lens, as Michael Mehta Webster suggests, we might find that when it comes to the earth’s durability there’s a lot to be optimistic about. Webster’s groundbreaking debut, The Rescue Effect (Timber Press, Oct 11, 2022), offers a powerful antidote to eco-anxiety—recasting the narrative of ecological decline as a continual process of adaptation and resilience.
 
In The Rescue Effect, Webster reveals that the natural world has a series of systems—rescue effects—that automatically activate to help organisms when their environment changes, “like a thermostat turning the air conditioning on when a room gets too warm, the rescue effect automatically turns on when a population is stressed or declining.” Through these systems, nature can independently save endangered species from extinction. These rescue effects are revealed in compelling stories of species that are adapting to the changing world—including tigers in the jungles of India, cichlid fish in the great rift lakes of Africa, and mountain pygmy-possums in the snowy mountaintops of southeastern Australia.
 
The Six Rescue Effects
  • Demographic Rescue: When new individuals immigrate to a small population of organisms to provide a numerical boost that prevents them from going extinct.
  • Reproductive Rescue: When the reproduction and survival rates of the group of organisms increase in uncrowded condi­tions, which increases the population size.
  • Genetic Rescue: When immigrants bring new genetic diversity to a small population, helping it overcome genetic disorders.
  • Phenotypic Rescue: When an organism adjusts its physiology, outward appearance, or behavior to cope successfully with changing environmental conditions.
  • Geographic Rescue: When a species successfully relocates to a new geographic location after environmental changes render its old location unsuitable.
  • Evolutionary Rescue: When organisms evolve, through survival of the fittest, to be able to persist under newly stressful conditions.
This does not mean humans can be passive. At the center of each story, people play a significant role—they must work in concert with nature to reverse climate change and save our planet. Webster combines rigorous research and gripping storytelling in The Rescue Effect, encouraging us all to confront our greatest challenge and find hope in nature itself.

Brave Paws offers brand new solution for stressed-out dogs suffering during fireworks and thunderstorms.

Brave Paws Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables for Dogs:plant-based chewable offers calming support for everyday stress and anxiety in dogs, including noise phobia.

(Greensboro, NC): The team at Brave Pawsknows that dogs are an important part of the family. Like any other member of the family, our furry friends experience nervousness and anxiety, especially during fireworks, thunderstorms and travel. Since no one likes to see their pets in distress, this can be a stressful time for everyone.

Brave Paws Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables for Dogs is a clinically studied and patented botanical that may help ease stress and anxiety in dogs. The plant-based chewables are made from a sustainably sourced blend containing naturally occurring compounds, including betulinic acid, which have been found to promote a sense of calm and relaxation in dogs.

Many things can cause anxiety in dogs, such as noise phobia, separation from their owner, travel or even the aging process. Noise phobia is one of the most common types of anxiety in dogs, affecting roughly 45% of canines. Loud random noises, such as thunderstorms and fireworks, can trigger dogs with noise phobia. For dog owners, summer fireworks celebrations and thunderstorms come with more than just fun and games. Dogs with a fear of loud noises such as thunder can cause danger of harming themselves trying to escape the noise.

“Dogs suffer from anxiety just as much as we do, if not more. Our chewables offer a sustainably sourced, plant-based solution that may help ease anxiety from noise phobia, separation from their owner, and everyday stress,” says Mark Hill, CEO of AABEX Animal Health, the owner of the Brave Paws brand. “We’re dog lovers too, and we just want our pups to be comfortable when faced with stressful events,” says Hill.

“The active ingredients in Brave Paws Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables for Dogs, Souroubea Spp. and Platanus Spp., are supported by both clinical and safety studies,” says Dr. Shannon Gregoire, veterinarian, media personality, and editor of Pet Candy Magazine. “The research is promising. These chewables may help calm dogs through stressful events like fireworks shows and thunderstorms,” says Gregoire.

Although both humans and dogs experience anxiety, dogs show it in different ways. These include panting, drooling, pacing, excessive barking, restlessness, and sometimes even aggressive or destructive behavior. Dogs can become anxious during thunderstorms, vet visits, road trips, loud noises, when the dog is separated from their owner, and—of course—during fireworks. While owners are always encouraged to take basic steps to ease their dog’s anxiety—such as giving them love and comfort and using training to help desensitize them to stressful stimuli—some dogs need additional support. That’s where Brave Paws Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables for Dogs comes in. For best results, the appropriate dose should be given to the dog 60 minutes before a stressful event, such as a storm or fireworks show. This product can be used daily, up to three times per day.

Brave Paws Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables are formulated with a clinically-studied and patented blend. The active ingredients that make up the patented formula include:

  • Souroubea spp.—Souroubea, a genus of flowering plants native to Costa Rica and other tropical areas, has traditionally been used in Central American cultures for its calming properties to treat nervousness and anxious behavior.
  • Platanus spp. bark—Platanus, also known as the North American Sycamore Tree, was traditionally used by Native Americans and early settlers for its purifying properties, to relieve internal pain, and for conditions such as colds and coughs.
  • Betulinic acid––a pentacyclic triterpenoid with anxiolytic properties
  • Alpha- and beta-amyrin—triterpines with anxiolytic, antidepressant, and anti-inflammatory properties.

The team at Brave Paws says that these chewables are veterinarian recommended, fast-acting, and non-drowsy. “Our product is not a sedative. Pet parents don’t want to tranquilize their dogs; they just want them to be calm during stressful events,” says Hill.

Brave Paws is also environmentally conscious and responsible with its sourcing. The Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables for Dogs are made with plant-based ingredients that are sustainably sourced from the United States, Canada, and Costa Rica. Brave Paws partners with Coopecuna, a woman-led co-op in rural Costa Rica that practices regenerative farming to improve soil composition, ecological biodiversity, and the local community.

Brave Paws Anxiety and Stress Support Chewables are available in bottles of 30 chewables for $29.99, and 3-packs with 90 chewables for $76.50 (a 15% discount off the list price). To order online, find more information on the brand and its story, or check out the science and behavior tips on their blog, visit www.mybravepaws.com, or on their Facebook or Instagram pages @mybravepaws.

DINOMAYNIA stomps its way into JUNE on 
NATIONAL DINOSAUR DAY 
 
Join vertebrate paleontologist and dinosaur expert Nizar Ibrahim along with National Geographic to celebrate everything DINOSAUR!
 
Dinosaurs may be extinct, but they never go extinct with kids. While these huge dangerous reptiles disappeared from the earth over 65 million years ago, they are still very much alive in the imagination of countless toddlers and kids and continue to be featured in many movie dynasties. Vertebrate paleontologist and dinosaur expert, Nizar Ibrahim shares his love of these fascinating creatures. He has scoured the deserts of North Africa for clues to life in the Cretaceous period, when the area was a large river system teeming with a profusion of diverse life. His team has unearthed giant dinosaur bones and footprints as well as remains of prehistoric fishes, crocodile-like predators, and giant flying reptiles. He is renowned for his decades long work tracing Spinosaurus, one of the most unusual dinosaurs yet found: a predator that was longer from snout to tail than an adult T.rex, and that had a six-foot tall sail on its back.  Ibrahim’s multi-disciplinary research projects shed light on a period of major changes for our planet including extreme climate fluctuations and the breakup of the supercontinent.
 
 
BIO: Nizar Ibrahim is a vertebrate paleontologist and comparative anatomist with a background in the bio-and geosciences and a Ph.D. in vertebrate paleontology. His teaching and research affiliations include the University of Detroit Mercy, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History (Pittsburgh, PA) and the University of Portsmouth (UK).  Over the last decade, he has reached millions of people around the globe via speaking tours, exhibits, educational videos, books, and scientific literacy projects for young people. Ibrahim and his discoveries have been widely featured in National Geographic magazine, most recently in Reimagining Dinosaurs, and in Nature, Science, the Wall Street Journal, Discover, and many other major national publications.

The Wandering Wildebeest
By Martin Coleman & Tim Slater
How will the wildebeest cross the crocodile-infested river ...?
The annual migration of wildebeest across the Masai Mara and Serengeti National Park is a
spectacular event. In this amusing and slightly silly story, we learn about the animals’ journey as
we follow the herd across dry and dusty plains in search of water and lush grass, overcoming
dangers on the way.
The Wandering Wildebeest tells the story of the massive annual migration across the African
plains in search of food and water. In the blistering heat, our heroes keep on walking over the
parched, dusty ground in their quest to find lush grassland to graze upon. Having faced
starvation, exhaustion and dehydration, they finally see a happy, grazing herd of buffalo in the
distance! But in order to reach the grassland, the wildebeest have one more dangerous challenge
ahead – to cross the deep, wide, river filled with crocodiles!
Written in humorous rhyme and including off-the-wall characters and scenarios, Martin Coleman's
funny, silly story, accompanied by Tim Slater’s stunning and hilarious illustrations will both
educate and entertain children of all ages, (and we think the grown-ups will secretly enjoy it, too!)

All Creatures Safe and Sound
The Social Landscape of Pets in Disasters
Sarah E. DeYoung and Ashely K. Farmer

 

Publication Date: August 31, 2021
224 pages, 1 table, 10 halftones, 6 x 9"
Paper: 978-1-4399-1975-0 $34.95


Lessons from recent disasters on accounting for the safety of animals and humans alike


Some of the most striking news stories from natural disasters are of animals tied to trees or cats swimming through murky flood waters. Although the issue of evacuating pets has gained more attention in recent disasters, there are still many failures throughout local and national systems of managing pets and accommodating animals in emergencies.

 

All Creatures Safe and Sound: The Social Landscape of Pets in Disasters (Publication Date: August 31, 2021) is a comprehensive study of what goes wrong in our disaster response that shows how people can better manage pets in emergencies—from the household level to the large-scale, national level. Authors Sarah DeYoung and Ashley Farmer offer practical disaster preparedness tips while they address the social complexities that affect disaster management and animal rescue. They track the developments in the management of pets since Hurricane Katrina, including an analysis of the 2006 PETS Act, which dictates that animals should be included in hazard and disaster planning. Other chapters focus on policies in place for sheltering and evacuation, coalitions for animal welfare and the prevention of animal cruelty, organizational coordination, decision-making, preparedness, the role of social media in animal rescue and response, and how privilege and power shape disaster experiences and outcomes.

 

Using data they collected from seven major recent American disasters, ranging from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Florence to the Camp, Tubbs, and Carr Fires in California and the Hawaii Lava Flow, the authors provide insights about the successes and failures of animal care. All Creatures Safe and Sound also outlines what still needs to change to best prepare for the safety and welfare of pets, livestock, and other companion animals in times of crisis.

 

Sarah E. DeYoung is an Assistant Professor at the University of Delaware as a Core Faculty member for the Disaster Research Center and the Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice and the Joseph R. Biden, Jr. School of Public Policy and Administration.

Ashley K. Farmer is an Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice Sciences at Illinois State University.

Bunnies Spring Into Action to Boost Little Girl’s Confidence in Tender Children’s Tale
 
Denver, CO, March 7, 2022 — A colony of cottontails breakdance, bebop and hip hop their way across the pages of It's Just a Bunnypalooza to teach lovable protagonist Lizzy some new dance moves just in time for the school talent show.
 
It's Just a Bunnypalooza is the third book in the It’s Just So… series from the award-winning team of Brenda Faatz and Peter Trimarco. As with all “Lizzy” books, (including the recent, fun-filled romp, Now What?) It's Just a Bunnypalooza springs to life with adventure-in-rhyme, fantastical humor and playful made-up words that pop into Lizzy’s mind.
 
When the contagiously enthusiastic Lizzy tells her classmates that she's learning jump-jivin’ moves from bunnies, the children giggle at her over-active imagination. Feeling embarrassed and self-conscious, Lizzy decides she no longer wants to be laughed at.
 
Lizzy becomes an avid "non-believer" and ceases any further communication with animals. Naturally, the bunnies organize an intervention. These furry little creatures will not allow Lizzy’s fandango to falter, and they sure don’t want to lose a good friend.
 
Written with young children ages 4 to 8 in mind, It's Just a Bunnypalooza provides multiple social-emotional-learning moments with subtle yet effective messaging about living out loud and staying true to yourself.
 
It's Just a Bunnypalooza has been praised by Kirkus Reviews as “Infectiously enthusiastic about dance and imagination. The bouncy, vibrant verbs make this an excellent read-aloud tale … full-color, whimsical illustrations nicely capture the story’s kinetic joy.”
 
Brenda Faatz has an undeniable connection with children. Some say it’s because they instinctively know “one of their own.” A graduate of the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Musical Theatre, Brenda is a professional singer, dancer, actor, writer and director. Having established herself as a critically-acclaimed actor while performing on stages from Minneapolis to Aspen, Boulder and Denver, Brenda has turned her talents to creating fresh content for youngsters. She has penned music, lyrics and scripts for original musical theatre works for children, and is the founder and director of the Notable Kids Arts Center in Denver. While collaborating with her husband and illustrator Peter Trimarco, Brenda has authored the award-winning It’s Just So … children’s book series because, as she likes to say, “no one ever told me I couldn’t.” 
 
Peter Trimarco started his professional doodling career as an editorial cartoonist before turning to commercial art and designing packaging for both the film and music industries. Along the way, he also established himself on the business side of music as an executive producer and creative director on over 40 productions, with two going on to win Grammy nominations. While staying in the entertainment field, he published a trade magazine for the film industry and ultimately brought his creative juices and publishing expertise to the printed page for youngsters. Peter is a graduate of Lake Forest College, where he studied Literature and Fine Arts. In addition to designing album covers and book covers, he is the illustrator of Ella McBella In The Dark by Laura Pells, and the It’s Just So … book series, which he co-created with his wife, Brenda Faatz.
