Finding koalas: Forest fires are very dangerous for wild animals, but in Australia, a border collie came to the rescue. The dog, named Bear, was trained by Detection Dogs for Conservation to find koalas that are hiding in the trees. Bear was chosen for the task because he is able to find the small mammals by their scent. When he locates a koala, he settles himself under the tree and waits for one of his human bosses to arrive. Then the humans figure out how to get the little animal down from its high perch.
Painter’s message: A house painter in Bolsover, Derbyshire, England, hadn’t been paid for the work he’d done on a building, so he took matters into his own hands. On the front of the freshly painted, cream-colored, two-story structure, Dean Reeves painted a message in black: “Want your house painted? Don’t be like Terry. Pay the bill! Now you will!” According to Reeves, building owner Terry Turner had continually refused to pay all of the agreed upon amount until the painter completed extra tasks. When Reeves understood what the owner was doing, he decided to paint the message.
Up a pole: Vernon Kruger must love heights and small places. Hailing from the town of Dullstroom, South Africa, he has lived in a 500-liter (132-US liquid gallon) barrel on top of a 25-meter (82-ft.) pole for many days at a time. And he’s done it twice. The first time was in 1997, when he broke the previous record
by staying in the barrel for 67 days. Recently, he broke his own record when he stayed there for 78 days. His stay wasn’t easy. He had to sleep curled up and had to rely on others to send food and water up to him in a wicker basket. He used the stunt to raise money for charity.
Award winner: Hibino Sekkei, an architectural firm in Japan, decided to bring nursery school children closer to nature through building design. Taku Hibino is the lead architect. His firm has gained a reputation for designing facilities for early childhood education. The renovation of YM Nursery, a school in Tottori
prefecture, is a prime example. The design called for opening the school up to the sea and the forest through open spaces and sliding doors, which helps bring the outdoors inside. The firm won best in its category at the World Architecture Festival.
