Sir Richard Branson And Virgin Team Up To Save The World's Wildlife

Filed under: EndangeredRescueWildlife

Nature's most exotic animals are being cut down one by one and there's needs to be change.

Sir Richard Branson and Virgin have teamed up with WildAid, an organization sponsoring the safety and rescue efforts of the world's endangered animals.

Branson was recently in India to help control the efforts of tiger poaching. There is a possibility that tigers can become extinct in our lifetime. Branson said the following on the need to help the tiger:

The tiger is desperately, desperately in need of help. They’ve got just two white tigers left in Rewa. I don’t think you can have too many people trying to help. What we’re hoping, with this trip, is to get maybe 30 foreign entrepreneurs working with 30 Indian entrepreneurs, see whether we can make a real difference and not just talk, see what practical help we can give them on the ground. Once you start seeing the numbers going up, from 1,500 to 3,000, things will be hopeful, but at the moment, that doesn’t seem to be happening.

Several celebrities and athletes have also created PSAs for the effort as well. Especially, China celebrities are making a conscious effort to inform the Chinese on the animals, as China has the most poaching of any other country.

Ke$ha Plans An Endangered Species Documentary

Filed under: Film FlickersKe$haEndangeredWildlife

Not only is she the first global ambassador for the Humane Society International, now Ke$ha wants to increase awareness about endangered animals.

Apparently, while on a recent trip to Africa, she was so inspired by all the wildlife, she knew she had to do something.

She said:

"I just got back from Africa two weeks ago. I had the best time with one of my girlfriends. And now we're putting together an entire series and documentary about endangered species."

We guess when she was moved by the plight of some of these endangered species, and realized she had to power to do something about it, so she jumped right in.

Way to go, gurl!

Daytime Drama! Could Katie Couric Bring About The End Of General Hospital?!?!

katie couric could bring about end of general hospital

Please don't do it, Katie! This move could mark the end of soap operas as we know it!

Back in April, we were sad to hear that All My Children will be gone forever in September, and One Life to Live will say goodbye in January.

Now, we've learned that Katie Couric MAY be signing a $20 million deal with ABC for a one-hour daytime talk show that would air in General Hospital's timeslot! Nooooooo!!!!!!!

If the deal goes through, Katie's show would start up in September. No word as to whether or not GH would be canceled or put into another time slot, but unfortunately we're NOT optimistic for the show if that happens.

Look, Katie…we understand you're looking for new opportunities now that you've parted ways with CBS Evening News, but soap operas are an extremely endangered species.

Think about it. If you spare GH, you could be a HERO to lots and lots of devoted fans! Enrique Iglesias will sing songs about you! LOLz.

Would U like to see a Katie Couric daytime talk show on ABC? Or would U prefer the continued existence of General Hospital?

Holograph Sells Out Concert In Japan!

Check out the video (above) to see why actual performing musicians may become an endangered species…at least in Japan!

The crowd went wiiiiild for holograph Hatsune Miku as she performed her hit song World Is Mine at her sold out concert!

We still like our performers live, but admittedly we were kind of mesmerized by this.

What do U think? Team Holographs or Team Live Performers?
