Where The Wild Things Are

I was happy to see my first seal, not in captivity, just enjoying the sun. (Beach in Kauai, Hawaii)


A bird in Hawaii that still enjoyed its freedom.


A bit of cultural shock with roosters and hens roaming freely. I’m use to seeing them on a farm.


These flamingos seemed to be happy in their man-made environment.



I was most saddened to take this photo. The orangutan’s eyes spoke to me.

    It is funny to see chooks wandering around road sides. You can see that in tropical Australia too. Apparently they are farm yard escapees. I agree about that poor orangutan. So many of those animals live a terrible life in captivity.

      Thank-you for sharing your thoughts, Suzanne. I didn’t know about the ‘chooks’ in Australia. I’m not a fan of zoos, but had some time to kill in Honolulu after we missed our flight back to Canada. I agree with your concern about sentient beings in captivity.

  4. That’s amazing! I love seeing animals in their home environment. We have a lot of water buffalos here in the village and they are free to roam around how they like 😍

      Thank-you, Ronja. I love freedom of movement for all wild life, but sad to say it doesn’t always happen since man is encroaching on certain habitats.

    When were you in Hawaii, Olga? What with all the volcano activity lately I would hesitate before going there. Loved your pictures! Thank you! I like you do not like zoos and avoid them. I frequent places where wildlife is free as they should be. I also agree with Mahatma Gandhi. Let’s hope man wakes up and soon before all the damage that has been done cannot be healed.

      Hi Amy. I was in Kauai, Hawaii last September for my oldest daughter’s wedding. I’m not a good traveler and sixteen hours to get there, including lay-overs, was a bit extreme, but it was definitely a once in a lifetime experience. At this time, I wouldn’t be traveling to that area either. Thank-you for your thoughtful comment concerning our fragile environment.
