Golden Monkey Hugs | Green Wings Award

Here is something that will put a smile on your face before the weekend. Here we have two endangered golden monkeys giving each other a hug. As a bonus, turn up your sound for some cuteness overload. We just had to give these adorable hugging monkeys our Green Wings Award of the week! Source unknown. […]

Tortoises Being Bros | Green Wings Award

For this Image of the Day we tried something a little different with a video clip of this helpful tortoise coming to the rescue of another tortoise in quite an upside-down situation. Watching this adorable moment is an important reminder of how much we need to help each other just like these two tortoises. That’s […]

nature wins again

Nature Finds a Way…Again | Green Wings Award

If you haven’t learned by now…nature always finds a way. As you can see in this image, where is seems as if someone decided it would be a good idea to attach their lock to this branch, the tree found a way to free itself. It just kept growing and broke the lock open. Nature’s […]

Purple Grasshopper | Green Wings Award

This is new…I mean, I’ve seen green grasshoppers before, but never a purple one. While its bright color definitely makes it stand out, I can’t imagine that’s a good thing when trying to hide from potential predators. If you’re going to hop among the blades of grass or climb along the green leaves of local […]

Iceburg Lion

Lion Iceberg | Green Wings Award

Is it a lion? Is it an iceberg? Well, in this case, it’s both. Although most of us will never get to see an iceberg up close, much less one that has morphed into a majestic animal (albeit one far from its natural habitat), this is definitely a sight to see. For its beauty, and […]

Nature taking over

Nature Taking Over | Green Wings Award

It just goes to show you…you leave anything outdoors for too long, nature will take it over. Looks like that is what’s happening to what once was someone’s vehicle. Don’t know how long it’s been there, but we’re pretty sure you won’t even be able to see it soon. Image by KidFromDudley | Source

Lizard Camp Out | Green Wings Award

This cute, little birdhouse may have been originally intended for the birds, but it looks like a neighborhood lizard has other plans. Maybe he’s simply looking for a new place to live or perhaps he’s planning a trip. The birdhouse does look like a camper….so he could be on a camp out. Whatever his intentions […]

Everyone Loves a Tree | Green Wings Award

While isn’t not uncommon to see birds, or even squirrels, hanging out in trees, finding a goat in a tree is a rare sight in most places around the world. Not in Morocco, apparently. Check out these goats! These goats climb trees instead of mountains. Just goes to show you…everyone loves a tree! For their […]

Peaking Through the Snowy Sky | Green Wings Award

Peaking up through this snowy sky towards the blue sky above may seem a little ominous, but it’s pretty cool too. Apparently this is what it looks like when the snow covered net roof in the aviary at the Munich Zoo begins to thaw. Either that or Katniss Everdeen has just broken through the dome […]
