Repost from @juliesharkangel. This is so so beautifully written: Tomorrow, my hero, inspiration, and dear friendโ€™s movie launches in a record-setting 78 theaters across Canada, a project that has consumed my heart, mind and time since we lost him. I donโ€™t think any true hero would consider themselves one โ€“ and Rob was no exception. I think heโ€™d want people to know that his passion and what he did โ€“ giving everything he had for what he loved, the stuff legends are made of โ€“ is something every single person has within them as well. Rob believed everyone could be a hero for a species or ecosystem; that we all had a super power waiting to be unleashed. Heโ€™d inspire everyone he met to โ€œtake what their good at and what they are passionate about and smash them together to lead a life of purpose.โ€ He, through his own actions, showed us that preservation of life on earth was the coolest and most rewarding mission anyone could take on. And he helped us realize activism doesnโ€™t have to be complicated; every day, in every aspect of our life, we have the ability to do something to make our world a better place. Even the little things add up to start a ground swell.

In a time when we are collectively overwhelmed with the state the world is in, we need Robโ€™s leadership now more than ever. And the beautiful thing is, we still have it thanks to his detailed notes and the ten-year plan he left behind, unlocked on his computer with the perfectly chosen password โ€œgratitudeโ€. None of us โ€“ individually or combined โ€“ could fill the enormous shoes this real-life hero has left us โ€“ but Team Sharkwater is working together to carry out all his plans. I hope you join us.
Please see the movie ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆโ€“ and bring all your friends on opening weekend. I know everyone will be inspired coming out of the film to take Robโ€™s mission - or whatever else you are passionate about - forward. In that way, his legacy lives on in all of us.๐Ÿ’™

Today, the final group of dogs are coming to Canada from a horrific dog meat farm in South Korea. @hsi_canada is working with @hsiglobal to shut this miserable facility down for good. In total, we have rescued over 200 dogs (including sweet Pablo here), saving them from a lifetime of deprivation and an unspeakable death. After spending some time in our temporary shelter in Cambridge, Ontario, many of these dogs will soon be en route to our Montreal shelter, where our wonderful shelter staff and volunteers will provide them with the veterinary care, nutrition, behavioral therapy, love and attention they need to recover. To learn more about our campaign to end the dog meat trade and how YOU can get involved, go to: hsicanada.ca/savedogs

Our Executive Director @rebeccaaldworth and my colleagues are in South Korea with @hsi_canada helping to shut down a massive dog meat farm. โ€œWe are rescuing 200 dogs and puppies from this terrible facility, more than 120 of which are flying to Canada. This place is unimaginably bad; the dogs are confined in barren, filthy, metal cages with no protection from the elements. The smell of rotting feces and sounds of desperate barking dogs is overwhelming. Many of these dogs are clearly former pets and some still wear collars. I canโ€™t imagine the terror a family dog must feel after being abandoned in this hellish place. But one by one we are taking these dogs out of their cages and flying them to freedom.โ€ #StopTheDogMeatTrade

Two decades ago, he began a quest to save sharks from extinction. Little did he know, he'd be shot at, take on the cartels, and expose corruption at an international level. #SharkwaterExtinction in theaters starting Oct 19th! @hsi_canada is so glad to partner and support this incredibly revealing film ๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿฆˆ

After 25 years, we finally look like identical twins again ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰ @courtney__woodall

In awe of these women who save animals everyday - through activism, food, photos, and political action. We did a panel on how to be an effective animal ally @vegfoodfest.
.
Whether itโ€™s building a massive vegan cheese empire, giving water to thirsty pigs heading to slaughter, using your photography to expose the world to the cruelty animals in captivity face, or something entirely different.
.
We all have an incredibly amount of power in our social networks and our own skills, to make the world a better place for animals.

THIS AFTERNOON @vegfoodfest! Whatโ€™s the best way to help animals? Is it through politics, corporate engagement, or grassroots advocacy? Come talk with us about how to be the most effective animal ally you can possibly be ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ„๐Ÿฆˆ The line up includes Jo-Anne McArthur of @weanimals, @margaretecoons of @nutsforcheese and Anita Krajnc of @thesavemovement @torontopigsave and myself from @hsi_canada @hsiglobal ๐ŸŒŸ

World premiere of #SharkwaterExtinction at @tiff_net with the best shark protection dream team ๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿฆˆ
.
People work so hard to save cute and cuddly pandas, dogs, and sloths. But rarely do they extend their compassion to sharks, who have been given a bad rep due to films like Jaws.
.
Every hour, 11,000 sharks die across the globe for their fins. These important species are vital for our future on this planet. If ocean ecosystems go down, we all go down. Thank you Rob for exposing the world to the cruelty sharks face day in and day out. We are here to carry on your legacy. ๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿฆˆ๐Ÿฆˆ

Giving this South Korean dog meat survivor his first hug โค๏ธ He didnโ€™t know how to walk on a leash, since he lived his entire life in a small wire cage, raised for meat. So, he demanded we carry him for his vet visit. ๐Ÿ’… #TB
