A malnourished dog was pulled from rubble in the Bahamas weeks after Hurricane Dorian devastated the island, and his rescuers gave him a fitting name: Miracle.

Miracle is now safe and recovering in Florida. Video via @CBSNews

Photos Of Dog And Cheetah Besties At Cincinnati Zoo Are Seriously Too Cute

Cutest best friends ever? We think so! Kris, the cheetah cub, was born July 9th and sadly lost her two siblings due to their mom Neena not being able to produce enough milk to sustain the cubs. 

In fear that Neena might abandon her last cub, caretakers at the Cincinnati Zoo stepped in and brought in a professional leader -- a dog! Blakely, the dog, came into the picture to "serve as a role model" the staff told PEOPLE

However, Blakely was retired and came out of retirement for the sole purpose of raising this cheetah cub. As it turns out though, Blakely was more than ready to get back to that retirement life just after a few months. 

Thus, a new canine stepped up to the plate! Remus, a mixed-breed rescue, is now Kris's newest (and from the looks of it, "best-est") friend! 

Seriously, it doesn't get any cuter than Remus and Kris! The two were photographed sharing toys and playing hide-n-seek!

Read more about the dog and cheetah pairings Cincinnati Zoo has paired over the years!

The video comes courtesy of Victor, a white-tailed eagle - while the footage is undeniably stunning, it is intended to highlight how climate change has melted alpine glaciers. The video sees Victor gliding through the snowy mountain peaks before eventually swooping down and landing on the arm of an expectant falconer.

Jacques-Olivier Travers is the eagle's handler and also the founder of Freedom Conservation - described as 'a game-changing conservation movement that seeks to reintroduce endangered birds of prey through creative conservation methods'. Mr Travers hopes the video will inspire people to help protect birds and their environment.

According to the Washington Post, he said: "Humanity has two dreams: to swim with dolphins and fly with eagles. How can you convince people to protect the birds and their environment if you never show them what the birds see? "I was stunned, the difference over a year was incredible."

The video is just one of many Victor is shooting across Marmolada glacier in Italy, Zugspitze glacier in Germany, Corvatsch glacier in Switzerland, Dachstein glacier in Austria and Aiguille du Midi glacier in France. However, it is never guaranteed that Victor will return with the footage: "I don't have a remote control. So if he doesn't see me and decides not to come to me, he could go anywhere," Mr Travers continued.

Freedom Conservation managing director, Ronald Menzel, said he hoped the video will offer people a different perspective - in more ways than one. He told the Washington Post: "We hope that once more, people are going to see nature from a totally different perspective and just reconnect to it and realize that wow, it's actually something that is amazing and that we want to do something to preserve."

Baby Turtle Dies Due To 104 Pieces Of Plastic Being Found In Its Stomach

Humans are destroying sea life with our insane usage of plastic and it shows. And sometimes it shows in devastating ways, such as this baby turtle.

On the shore of Boca Raton, Florida, a baby turtle washed up. "It was weak and emaciated. I could just tell it wasn't doing well," Emily Mirowski, Emily Mirowski, a sea turtle rehabilitation assistant at the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, told CNN. The baby turtle did not die of natural causes, it died because this turtle had an astonishing amount of plastic in it's belly -- 104 pieces of plastic, to be exact. 

The Gumbo Limbo Nature Center shared the heartbreaking photo of the deceased baby turtle along with all the bits and pieces of plastic that were found inside. 

"It was really heartbreaking," Mirowski said. "But it's something we've seen for several years and we're just glad people are finally seeing this image and hopefully it's raising awareness."

If this image doesn't make you take a second look at your plastic usage, we don't know what will.
