From getting stuck in nets to eating plastic they think is food, creatures worldwide are dying from material we made, from material we choose to use every.single.day. That one straw, one disposable coffee cup, and one plastic water bottle does make a difference. Cut single-use plastics from your life today! #PLASTICSUCKS

1 minute, 10 minutes, 100 years. Plastic straws are made in 1, used for 10 and decompose over 100+ years!! It really is essential to stop such unnecessary wastage! Our straw sets come with a brush for easy cleaning! 🌍🌱🌵🍃💧

Let’s wear COMPASSION! 💚🌎🌍🌏👗👕🧤👚🧣
Did you know over 80% of garment workers are women? This means they are more likely to get stuck in low pay jobs where they are treated poorly because of fast fashion. And it's the same fast fashion industry that pollutes our waterways and contributes to climate change. We can help turn this around by demanding transparency from our brands and using our money to vote for the kind of world we want. We may not be able to check every single one of these boxes for every piece of clothing we wear or buy but we can do our best!

OUR OCEANS ARE DYING!
They are being killed by commercial fishing!
_
Driftnets are mile-long walls of netting that float in the ocean. They are extremely harmful as notoriously high numbers of sea animals, including protected species, such as dolphins, sea lions, and seabirds, are caught, killed, and thrown away by the driftnet fishing industry. These animals are referred to as “bycatch.” This loss of life is a massive threat to marine ecosystems.

Driftnets are already banned in many countries, and only one driftnet fishing industry remains in the United States—in federal waters off the coast of California.

Please add your voice in my bio link 🙏🏼💙🐘if you need it I can DM you the sample letter.
As Legal Counsel prepares for court in July, here’s what YOU can do:
Submit your grievance form to the President of Sri Lanka, respectfully demanding that Gangabe taken into Protective Custody:
1. Go to my bio link
2 Within the form, click:
Organization Type: Top Government
Organization: Presidential Secretariet
District: Colombo
3. Please continue to submit your grievances to the President. Support Legal Counsel who has refused to back down no matter the cost, so that Ganga, and so many like her, may one day live in peace among others of her own kind, to heal her past, and to have a future without pain, fear, and loneliness. Writing a simple grievance in your own words adds an authentic plea, but you can also use the sample letter below:

Mr. President,

Worldwide advocates for Ganga, the captive elephant chained at the Gangaramaya Temple, are appalled that this innocent elephant has been kept chained and alone for years in the name of status and religion. In the refusal to support the February 2016 Court Order for Ganga’s release into Protective Custody, her torment and suffering continue year after year.

It is a criminal offense to kidnap an endangered animal from the wild and then imprison it. And yet even above and beyond this offense, to commit such a travesty in the name of status and religion is unconscionable.

You have the opportunity to become a world leader in doing what’s right for all Temple Elephants. ・・・

#FlashbackFriday:

Back in January when Robyn, Skylar, Tank and Satara were still coming in to the boma area over night, they were spotted all in a row doing some synchronised eating!

Tank and his three female friends have now been reintroduced to the wild and live freely out in the Intensive Protection Zone. As one of our older groups of rhinos they are all settled and well adjusted to their life out in the veld!

To find out more about us and the work we do rehabilitating rhinos please visit www.careforwild.co.za.

*”One of the saddest things to witness in nature is man's impact on the wild. Even in a wildlife sanctuary like Kruger National Park, South Africa, careless people don't realize the impact their trash has on wildlife. This adolescent hyena was actually using this bottle to play keep-away with its siblings. Fortunately the bottle didn't break, and when the hyenas departed, the bottle was collected and disposed of properly. Make a difference today, don’t leave a mess, choose the planet!”
