Comments Off on VIDEO: Ethical Fur – Is It Possible? And Meet New York’s Wild Wolves!

Living in New York City, I often feel like I’m lacking nature in my life. Lucky for me, however I recently got offered the opportunity to go on an “animal adventure roulette” by  Subaru to check out some local fauna in the New York City area, with my 5-year-old son Petey. Our first destination?  Ambika Conroy’s Compassionate Bunny Fur Farm in upstate New York with 18 angora rabbits , where owner Ambika makes amazingly soft, warm, fur-like winter accessories like scarves, hats and sweaters sans cruelty by brushing her adorable pet rabbits! We also made a stop at a surprise destination to howl with some wild New York wolves . Watch the video here , to see what the wolves have to say to Inhabitat readers!

The deceptively simple, self-contained system can turn any bike into a “smart electric hybrid” cycle by providing a kinetic boost for riders. Four years passed—during which time the Copenhagen Wheel received a handy, high-profile publicity boost as part of a plot line on the HBO’s Weeds —and now Massachusetts-based company Superpedestrian is finally accepting pre-orders for the wheel.
