Imagine a world where real meat is produced sustainably without the need to breed, raise and slaughter animals. This is no longer science fiction, it’s now within reach. At the forefront of this urgent frontier is Mayo Clinic trained cardiologist Dr. Uma Valeti, the co-founder and CEO of Upside Foods (previously Memphis Meats), the leading start-up of the “cultivated” meat revolution. 

Exploring a game-changing solution, Meat the Future is narrated by Jane Goodall and features music by Moby.

Red-headed Woodpeckers are medium sized woodpeckers with fairly large, rounded heads, short stiff tails and powerful spiked bills.

This beautiful bird was recently added to the engendered bird list due to its declining numbers due to loss of wetlands and breeding grounds.

This stunning photo was taken in Point Pelee by Duncan.
