But the summer of 2019 was extraordinary as the big, furry creatures have spent it crashing weddings, making pit stops at hotel bathrooms and other shenanigans, all over the US, as mapped in the map below.

The Animals In This Spanish Zoo Roam Freely While Visitors Are Separated Through Natural Barriers

Bioparc Valencia is a small zoo in Valencia, Spain, with a large collection of African animals. Unlike your average zoo where animals are locked in cages, the animals in Bioparc Valencia appear to roam freely in the park. But there is no need to be afraid. Bioparc Valencia is what is called an "immersive zoo" – a concept of immersing visitors into the animals' habitat and not vice versa. But this isn't another Chinese zoo where visitors are locked in cages at the back of a trailer as it makes its way through the park. In Bioparc Valencia, there are no cages, instead of using rivers, ponds, streams and rocks to separate visitors from the animals. Here, the barriers are practically invisible and the animals feel right at home.

Twitter Page Posts Stunning Wildlife Moments Caught On Camera

What a better way to celebrate International Wildlife day than this awesome twitter page with its amazing wildlife moments caught on camera in different parts of the world, by different photographers.   

Every year we lose numerous species to the growth and expansion of human holdings, but through the effort of zoos, sanctuaries, and preservation organizations that rate is being slowed. These groups do amazing work, educating and bringing awareness to people everywhere, all while preserving these precious treasures from Mother Nature. Wildlife Day on September 4th every year reminds us that there are creatures out there that cannot speak for themselves, so we have to stand up and be a voice for them. The animals will thank you for it, as will the generations to come who will still be able to enjoy them!

Last weekend, a bird showed up at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah (WRCNU) in the most unusual, and until now unheard of, way -- in an Uber... completely alone. 

Apparently, the people who found the injured bird, a two-week-old Lesser Goldfinch, had been drinking and didn't want to drive. They sent an image of the bird to the WRCNU asking whether or not the center would be able to help the bird out, the center told them to bring it in. 

Unable to drive, they came up to the conclusion that they should call an Uber for the bird.

"At first it was a joke, like, 'Hey, maybe we should just call Uber!' said Tim Crowley, one of the people who rescued the baby Goldfinch. "Then we were like, 'No, really. Why not? We're paying them.'"

They called an Uber and after explaining their unique situation to the driver, the driver canceled on them. So they decided to try again, called up a second Uber, and this time they only told the driver the situation after she pulled up. 

"Like, 'What? Are you kidding? Okay, sure,'" Tim said was the driver's reaction.

But thanks to Crowley and the others who came up with this plan, the saved that little birds life. According to Buz Marthaler, the center's chairman, the bird would have died had it not gotten help or been able to be put back into its nest. 

Thankfully, Petey — as Crowley and his other rescuers called the bird — is doing well. Marthaler told FOX13 that the bird even have a friend sharing its cage! The center is still unsure if the bird is a boy or girl yet and have decided to call the bird, "Uber" or "Petey Uber." Marthaler also confirmed that the center will be able to release Petey by the end of summer, just before the migration.

"It just brightens everybody's day," Marthaler said. "Makes them pretty happy."
