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.
“The struggle is real.”
Ever heard this saying before? It seems to be a popular phrase quoted by many these days when facing hard times or just a long and tiring day at work…
Recently though – I have found it interesting that despite going through days of my own where the struggle has felt all too real… I have been given more random compliments from friends and words of flattery than I have seemed to notice before. This post is not to point out these compliments, but to bring awareness to the fact that compliments can hold more than just kind words.
