Doing what I love
It’s a numbing thought to consider that as we sit on our computers, watch our TVs, or scroll through our instagrams, wildlife across the world are literally fighting for their lives. And while we may not see the immediate causes of this fight – it is imperative that a global awareness for wildlife conservation is raised in order to conserve all remaining populations.
The other day while mindlessly watching TV, I happened to hear something said that quickly grabbed my attention… It was nothing extremely profound, yet it struck me as so. “Inspiration is fleeting” Yes, that is what I heard. Now let those words sink for…
Before reading on about the NWF, I want you to take just 30 seconds and think about all the different wildlife that call North America home. I am sure you could name at least five – maybe even ten different species. Now take another 30 seconds and think about the other species of wildlife that live across this planet’s continents. Perhaps you came up with a few more species off the top of your head… However, I think it is fair to assume that you weren’t able to recall all the names of the remaining 8.7 million plus species scientists currently estimate exist.
Some things that I have learned and some photos for you to see of this South African adventure.
Without coral reefs, the oceans we depend on for food and health will not be able to function as efficiently as we require them to. And as they face a changing climate among other issues, reefs are in need of your protection and consideration. Even if you think you are too far away from reefs like the Great Barrier to make a difference, your actions at home have an impact on the immediate environment.
