The song “Island In the Sun” by Weezer talks about the importance of escaping society to get back in touch with yourself, connecting with nature, and finding your happiness. While living in the woods at Walden Pond, Thoreau justifies his decision to live there by saying: “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived” (17). This quote perfectly sums up the message of the song, and connects the two main themes of spending time in nature and escaping society to bring out independent
Carter introduces the audience to his argument not by giving his statement or "mission" immediately but by telling the audience a story of a personal experience that helps the audience sympathize with his point of view. The way Carter describes the beauty of his trip to the Wildlife Refuge and how it was a very personal experience makes the audience feel they are being let in on a personal level to the President's point of view against the drilling in the Refuge. The story of the migration of the porcupine caribou gave the his audience an idea of what the refuge really means and emphasizes how it would all be destroyed if industrialization on the Refuge were to happen.

Our beliefs, culture, and needs as humans influence our relationships with wildlife and how we view each individual species as well as how we treat/preserve them. After reading Wild Ones, it is obvious that the author Jon Mooallem and the others mentioned in the book believe that polar bears, birds, and bees are specific animals that deem worthy of protection. Mooallem provides many examples of people who give reasoning as to why we should help preserve these animals. Mooallem uses these specific people’s backgrounds to show the difference of opinions between someone who has knowledge of the animal, versus someone that only adores the animal because of the animals looks.

In part one of the novel, Pi is revealed to have studied at the University of Toronto and his majors included religious studies and zoology. For his zoology thesis he chose to study the three-toed sloth, a calm and quiet animal. The sloth plays an important role in understanding Pi’s character however; it is not until the end of the novel where this connection is prominent. After reading the entire story the reader realizes that the role of the sloth was less physical and more mental as it represents the contrast between its calm and simple life and the turbulent journey that Pi took part in. It may also symbolize the life Pi yearned for, a simple and quiet life like the sloth, “The three-toed sloth lives a peaceful, vegetarian life in perfect
He compiled his own notes, as well as the notes of others on the journey, to make a comprehensive book with the events and discoveries the team collectively made. This book is titled “Account of an Expedition from Pittsburgh to the Rocky Mountains, Performed in the years 1819, 1820.” He refers to himself as the “botanist and geologist for the expedition” (James 1823). He wrote that he hopes “to have contributed something towards a more thorough acquaintance with the Aborigines of our country,” as well as “the phenomena of nature, to the varied and beautiful productions of animal and vegetable life, and to the more magnificent if less attractive features of the inorganic creation” (James 1823,
At this point Sea World has stated that over the next few years they will transition their focus from thrilling showcases of entertainment to educational programs to teach about these beautiful animals that are beyond powerful and yet so fragile at the same time. While Sea World has made these pledges and they have agreed to follow the legislation, they have also made claims that the documentary "Blackfish" and other claims from animal rights groups are just propaganda. Sea World claims that keeping these animals in captivity is actually beneficial to the entire orca population. They claim that this gives them the opportunity to study the breed in a controlled environment and further conservation efforts. Even though Sea World is making this argument, researchers are quick to point out that Sea World researchers have published very few studies.
