MOST RECENT

*The Agile Project*
The last permanent fresh 'body of water' in Trinity Beach has been filled-in by Bluewater Development. The before and after photos are simply, devastating.
This Billabong was home to a variety of native fresh-water fish & native ducks and was an important resource for many birds, reptiles, insects and of course… Agile Wallabies. It might explain why we’ve had so many wallabies venturing out even further to find water and grass, thus closer to roads. In the past 10 days, we’ve found 30 dead wallabies where 57% have been male, 20% have been female and 23% unknown (bodies too mutilated to determine). These death rates are NOT natural.
The Council have been notified of the recent Bluewater events and are looking into it. When we called Bluewater to determine why the Billabong was filled-in, the representative said “I have no idea” and would not pass us onto anyone who could answer our questions. This shows they are not taking any responsibility for their actions.
Agile wallabies have already lost so much of their land due to development taking over and now… they’ve lost their only permanent water supply and again, it’s at the hands of developers. This is extremely traumatic considering the lack of rain. Moore’s Gully is completely dry and the wallabies aren’t absorbing enough water from grass. It’s no wonder they’re dying at such an abnormal rate.
We understand development is not going to stop but only wish they would start taking into consideration the impact they are having on our native species. The once-beautiful-billabong was a sign of human/wildlife co-existence, which has now been obliterated. Bluewater advertises that it's surrounded by rainforest and natural waterways but neglect to mention that it was all flattened to make way for the plethora of houses they've built. They use photos of forest and lush greenery for marketing yet their development has robbed our native wildlife of this very habitat. *Please be advised that these “before” photos were taken 1 year ago (in the dry season). The “after” photos were 11/09/2018

This photo is unattributed. Large industrial farms all over #NorthCarolina are flooded. There are nine million pigs across the state, babies living their entire lives inside giant sheds. Mothers in metal cages, unable to save themselves or their piglets. These are expendable lives to the public. Bred to be tortured, exploited, consumed -- now dying in mass instead of in shifts after transport to the slaughterhouse. We must change our relationship with nonhuman animals. We must. This flooding is a tragedy for them but we've made their very being born a tragedy. We are so sorry. So incredibly sorry. 💔

PADI & Project AWARE Week

海に入るようになって、今まで以上に自然破壊について考えるようになりました。

AFPの映像を見て現状を学んだり、今自分にできることは何かと考えたりするようになりました。

まだまだ何もできないけれど、今年はほんの小さなことを見つけてやりました。
また後ほどご報告します!

来年はProject Awareのコースを受講したい!

Struck by the #urbansprawl of #Australian #cities this morning
.
I'm reading Judith Butlers 'Frames of war: when is life grievable?' Butler poses the argument that we all have precarious bodies, and that we are inextricably bound together in a web of social and physical inter-dependence. She talks about differenting between the bodies we grieve and those we don't, and examines the justifications that are made about particular forms of violence against particular bodies (eg a suicide bombing vs. state condoned violence against a group of people)
.
I'm struck though by the function of cities as both bringing people together in close proximity, but at the same time (often) decreasing our subjective feeling of inter-dependence on people, the land and our oceans. Perhaps, paradoxically, fostering a sense of indestructability as a result of our less sustainable lives and practices. I'm wondering what this might mean for how we justify these lives we live, the choices we make, and the destruction we enact everyday on the environment and other bodies (eg. Garments factory workers)

The science and research done on the true impacts of animal agriculture is always growing.
Meat and dairy has been largely ingrained into our diets.

For most of us it’s an unexamined habit that’s not carried out with any intended malice, but that doesn’t mean there are no consequences.

This industry is a leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution, and habitat destruction—including rainforests.

Our lifestyle is in our hands.

Science is showing things need to change.

What can we do about it!!! Stop environmental destruction.

"Stop giving power to people who don't believe in science or worse than that, pretend they don't believe in science for their own self - interest. THEY know who they are. WE know who they are. We are all, rich or poor, powerful or powerless, WE WILL ALL suffer the effects of climate change and ecosystem destruction. And we are facing what is quickly becoming the greatest moral crisis of our time. That those least responsible will bear the greatest costs."
~Harrison Ford in San Fransisco for the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit.

This creek is flowing about 10 percent of normal. North Boulder Creek has a dam above here and a significant portion of the water is piped down to Boulder Colorado. Ironically, the relatively dry natural ecosystem of shortgrass prairie in Boulder has been transformed into “Tree City USA” by removing runoff from this creek among others. Without sprinkler systems more than 95% of the trees in Boulder would die. #climatechangeisreal #waterfollowsmoney #environmentalposers #culturalappropriation #terraforming #entitledpeople #pretenders #environmentaldestruction #artificialecosystem #artificialecosystems #bouldercolorado #iphonepics

TEA TIME!!!
Thank you so much to Amos and all the rangers at the “Reteti Elephant Sanctuary” for letting us share in the 6pm feed. Ranging from 4 months to 2 1/2 years the elephant are orphaned because of drought, abandonment, human contact, and poaching. They spend all their days with the rangers who feed them every three hours day and night. The intention is that all these elephants will be released back into the wild. @r.e.s.c.u.e
