One baby pangolin was born at our centre on 23rd May 2015. The mother has been been rescued by SVW team on 9th May 2015 together with 42 other confiscated pangolin from illegal trade. It is a mazing success after the mother has spent a long time without food and water since being captured in forests until she is rescued. 

Baby pangolins are super adorable!

You should go like Save Vietnam’s Wildlife over on facebook, they do some great work for the conservation of pangolins and other rare species in Vietnam.

anonymous asked:

Can you explain the idea of time-travelling in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban?

I have no proof that I’m correct in this at all, so take it with a grain of salt: I think time travel in PoA follows the predestination paradox theory, which basically supports the belief that time is just one linear span and immutable (or unable to be changed). That basically means everything that happened after Harry and Hermione used the time turner as a means to save Sirius and Buckbeak was always going to happen because it already had, which is why Harry was able to see himself casting the Patronus before the time turner had even been used. 

And if this doesn’t satisfy your question because you were looking for the specifics, all I can say is: it’s magic!

“Now, my three friends could hardly fail to notice that I disappeared once a month. I made up all sorts of stories. I told them that my mother was ill, and that I had to go home to see her… I was terrified they would desert me the moment they found out what I was. But of course, they worked out the truth… and they didn’t desert me at all. Instead, they did something for me that would make my transformations not only bearable, but the best times of my life. They became Animagi.“

Your mother was there for me at a time when no one else was. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others, even, and perhaps most especially, when that person could not see it in themselves. Then your father, James on the other hand, he had a certain shall we say talent for trouble. A talent, rumor has it, he passed onto you. You are more like them than you know, Harry. In time you’ll come to see just how much.

we need to talk about Ron in Prisoner of Azkaban 

  • imagine all the secrets he told Scabbers
  • his good pet Scabbers who was always there 
  • listened to him when spoke about his doubts
  • his fears
  • how he was worried he’d never live up to his brothers
  • they were all amazing
  • made their parents proud
  • but what about him??? what could he do???
  • the love that a young boy had for a simple old pet
  • then he finds out that his rat was involved in the murder of his best friend’s parents 
  • he was never a garden rat 
  • but an aid to the death of lily and james potter
  • imagine how he felt at that moment
  • sure deep down he knew he couldn’t have known 
  • it wasn’t his fault
  • but that initial guilt
  • for years he had looked after and shared his secrets with peter pettigrew
  • a villain in hiding 
  • did he feel like he couldn’t look Harry in the eye
  • ever put into words how sorry he was 
  • Harry was going through unimaginable pain
  • but surely, so was Ron too
