At Sentient Media, we report on an industry that touches all our lives yet operates in secrecy: factory farming.

On #WorldPressFreedomDay, we call on governments to lift #AgGag laws and share 13 findings we could only report thanks to the help of undercover investigators.👇1/17 Image
“Ag-gag” laws punish whistleblowers and investigators for recording footage inside #FactoryFarms.

In 2021, @ALDF released a film on how #AgGag laws conflict with the First Amendment while concealing pollution, food safety threats, and animal cruelty. 2/17

“These companies keep their practices under wraps because they know that the public would be horrified.”

Former @AnimalOutlook investigator Scott David reports how #AgGag laws enable farmers to conceal the realities of #meat, dairy & egg production. 3/17

1/ Being a curious individual such I am, I often find myself fascinated by upcoming #web3 trends and topics. I recently acquired an NFT that it’s not your typical pfp. It is a changing NFT and today I’m talking about #dynamicnfts and the smooth example of @rubberduckBP
🧵
2/ The majority of NFT I’m used to (but I guess most of us are) are #staticnfts. It doesn't refer to the actual nature of the artwork. Videos, gifs, and others are still static nfts, while being dynamic in their form. A static nft though will remain unchanged over time.
3/ An NFT has 3 main core components: 1, the #smartcontract, which interacts with the blockchain and sets the parameters. 2, the actual NFT with a unique ID token. 3, the #metadata stored in the NFT, which defines the artwork and actually displays it.

Yesterday @SpyWolfNetwork had an #AMA with @PoorQuack. It turned out to be a session full of valuable information, which deserves to be spread further around.

So here we go! Slightly edited here and there to save some space. Enjoy the ride!

Good to see people taking an interest in our #rivers,we hope they’ll become guardians of these precious #habitats &advocate for allowing our #wildlife to thrive. But there’s a horrible hometruth that fishermen (& @EnvAgency) need to face up to-⚠️thread contains distressing images
For every new licenced fisherman there’s many more unlicensed leading to much suffering of our river #wildlife illustrated by #wildlifecrimes in this thread @EnvAgency MUST step up checking of licences&honourable fishermen must call out those endangering #wildlife @BBCCountryfile

My associate advises me of a new clutch of seven #TuftedDuck #ducklings at the Boating Lake at Ally Park, apparently seen around first a few days back @FriendsAllyPark
A few days later, 4 out of 7 #Tufted_Duck ducklings remain. They're alive and well, though, and already qualified free-divers.

@FriendsAllyPark
That ducklin' free-divin'!

THREAD about birb in Iranian art 🦆🦚🐓🦅🐣

You’ll notice that #ducks are REALLY common in #Sogdian art, appearing primarily in #textile (there’s also a wooden painted panel from Kucha). They almost always hold a necklace in their beaks

They sometimes appear in conjunction with pheasants, who often wear a necklace around their necks.

What’s this motif all about?

Monday's #hailstorm was catastrophic for #Canberra's #birds. See this thread for some stories, both good and bad, about some of the birds that came into our care.
Carer Helen reports: "The storm hit and the phone went crazy. Vets were inundated with animals - one had to euthanise 38 in a row and sent us the remaining 12. We received maybe 60 birds."
Volunteer Paula continues: "ACT Wildlife's carers were so amazing, taking on as many as they could. Volunteers drove boxes of birds to carers for us. We finished at about 9.30pm. After dropping off to carers I got home at 11.30pm. It was a BIG day."
