1000 Flowers for the Planet - #627 Observe World Animal Day
Today is World Animal Day and also marks two years since I started this project. Saving the bees was what got me started, and has led me on an intense journey of learning how badly we treat this planet, the creatures that live on this planet and each other. It is my hope that opening discussion about any and every issue will help make things better – for the environment, animals everywhere and for ourselves.
Today, however, let’s take a good hard look at how we treat the animals of the world and what we can do, because there are SO many things we can do to make things better. We can fundraise, lobby, petition, and volunteer. Whatever our age or background, there is something we can do to improve the life of animals all over the world. To mark the day there are events all across the globe. Check them out at http://www.worldanimalday.org.uk/ or check out any of the fantastic organisations that look after animals in your area such as http://www.animalsaustralia.org/ www.seashepherd.org or something else local to you. Let’s make a difference. Let’s make it happen.
