YouTube cook Hilah Cooking was bummed to learn this week that Chick-Fil-A president Jim Cathy opposes gay marriage (the fast-food chain gave $1.7 million to anti-gay groups in 2009 alone).

So Hilah whipped up a quick video that shows us how to make the chain's fried chicken sandwich at home -- with "less sugar, less salt, and less funding for anti-human-equality organizations."

She calls it the Chick-Fil-Gay.

Fewer than 100 pairs of Spoon-billed Sandpipers are thought to remain in the wild, but the critically endangered species got a major boost last week when a flock of 14 hatched in captivity in the U.K.

Just several days old, the chicks are all legs and awkwardness. But RSPB wildlife charity director Dr. Tim Stowe is confident the flock will help the species make a comeback:

A bird like the Spoon-billed Sandpiper, with its bizarre little beak, has survived through time and it doesn't deserve to be wiped out now.

McDonald's is no slouch when it comes to advertising -- a behind-the-scenes look at how the fast-food giant gussies up its food for commercials went viral in June.

Now the company has returned with a second video, in which McDonald's Executive Chef Dan Coudreaut answers a question from Christine H.: "What is in the sauce that is in the Big Mac?"

Turns out, you can pretty much make it at home, from scratch!

Good ol' clam, taking care of its own seasoning. Pass the garlic butter.

UPDATE: This video was posted because it was compelling; the clam obviously is not having an afternoon snack.

As the New Statesman -- and a handful of TDW readers -- explain: "You are watching the execution by torture of an animal which may be almost two centuries old."

What appears to be the "tongue" of the clam is actually its "foot," and it is attempting to make an escape in search of water:

Have you ever rubbed salt in a wound, or poured salt on a slug? The inside of a clam is not much different; touching the salt is not something it likes to do. So it retracts its foot, and sits, waiting for the tide to come in, and hoping it isn't picked off by a seagull.

A rare Sumatran rhino was born at Indonesia's Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary on June 23. The birth is the first since 2001, when the newborn's father, Andalas, was born at the Cincinnati Zoo. This latest addition to the Sumatran rhino family is the culmination of multiple zoological entities working together, says Dr. Terri Roth, Director of the Cincinnati Zoo's Lindner Center for Conservation and Research of Endangered Wildlife:

"When we celebrated the monumental birth of Andalas at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2001, we never imagined he would play such a pivotal role in the survival of his species. This international collaboration is conservation work at its finest."
