In a suburban Denver warehouse tucked between an auto repair shop and a computer recycling business, Seth Viddal is dealing with life and death. “It’s a natural process where the body is returned to an elemental level over a short period of time,” said Viddal, who likened the practice to backyard composting of food scraps and yard waste. “This is the same process but done with a human body inside of a vessel, and in our case, in a controlled environment.”

Hundreds of birds migrating through New York City this week died after crashing into the city's glass towers, a mass casualty event spotlighted by a New York City Audubon volunteer's tweets showing the World Trade Center littered with bird carcasses. This week's avian death toll was particularly high, but bird strikes on Manhattan skyscrapers are a persistent problem that NYC Audubon has documented for years, said Kaitlyn Parkins, the group’s associate director of conservation and science. “We had a big storm and sort of weird weather and lots of birds, and that’s sort of the perfect combination that can lead to bird-window collisions,” Parkins said.

More than 1,400 dolphins were killed on Sunday (September 12) off the coast of the Faroe Islands in a single day, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society said, as part of the Danish territory's century-old traditional Grindadrap hunt.The U.S.-based NGO said the slaughter of 1428 Atlantic white-sided dolphins is considered to be the largest single hunt of cetaceans ever recorded worldwide.The annual dolphin drive, when several hundred pilot whales are slaughtered for their meat and blubber, is part of a 1,000-year-old tradition in the North Atlantic archipelago.This year the number of mammals slaughtered prompted an outcry from animal rights groups for the excessive killing, producing "more dolphin meat from this hunt than anyone wants to take," Sea Shepherds said in a press release.

A nice paddleboarding afternoon became a scary situation for one Florida woman when an alligator came right up to her board in Silver Springs State Park, getting so close that she was able to push it away with her paddle.Vicki Baker posted the video to social media on September 8, showing the gator zooming right up next to her. Baker was sitting atop her paddleboard, trying to get the animal to leave her alone.“All I was thinking is, ‘Get your feet out of the water,’ and ‘If he bites my board, I’m done.’ I was so scared I really didn’t have time to think, just react,” Baker told Storyful.Baker took her paddle and pushed the animal away from her board, prompting the alligator to hiss at her as it retreated.Although Baker believes someone has been feeding this alligator, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission urges people to keep their distance if they see one of the large reptiles.
