First kakapo chick hatches since 2011
Painstaking repairs to a crushed kakapo egg have paid dividends with the arrival of the first kakapo chick since 2011.
There had been concern Lisa One would not survive after the egg was last week found crushed, on the nest.
The chick, belonging to kakapo mother Lisa, hatched on Friday evening under the anxious gaze of the Kakapo Recovery team, on Whenua Hou/Codfish Island.
Senior ranger Jo Ledington did an incredible job carefully repairing the egg with tape and glue, programme manager Deidre Vercoe Scott said.
"We only have five viable eggs on Whenua Hou and this one was the first laid. It was touch and go for a few days but with the special care and expertise of our team, the dedication has paid off," Ms Vercoe Scott said.
Lisa One is in an incubator on the island and receiving round-the-clock attention, including regular feeding, weighing and checks. It will be several weeks before it’s known which sex it is.
The other four eggs are also in incubator care and are expected to hatch at various stages during the next few weeks.
Lisa One’s arrival has increased the total population of the critically endangered New Zealand parrot to 125.
Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
I’m just sitting here, thinking of all the kids who will feel more beautiful because of Lupita Nyong’o.
a bunch of moms are making letters+audio recordings of affirming, validating letters to queer/trans* people who don’t get that kind of support from their moms
i would say more about it but
im kind of busy in this puddle of tears on the floor so
In case any of my followers don’t have this kind of support from home…

I HAVE BEEN WAITING MY WHOLE LIFE FOR THIS GIF
Snowflakes are actually the perfect metaphor for people. Each one IS unique, but we all have the same structure and are pretty similar in spite of our differences. And really, with as many around as there is, aint no one gonna notice your differences unless they care enough to look closely.
People are also similar to snowflakes in that it is difficult to drive when there are too many of them piled up on the road.
Well that took a turn I didn’t expect
