I’ve watched and followed Jane Goodall most of my life. In my eyes, she is the icon of conservation, environmental sustainability and love for our Mother Earth.
There are thousands of conservationists, nonprofit wildlife sanctuaries, rangers and rescue centers working diligently every day to save thousands upon thousands of animals, in a variety of challenging situations all linked to humanity. I believe it is up to us to seek ways to remedy the problems we’ve created by finding ways to live in harmony with wildlife and restore our planet. It is my intention to bring awareness to the need for mindful living and compassion to the forefront through my imagery.
In my effort to promote conservation I give my support to animal sanctuaries and rescues.
It is difficult to know all of the ways that wild and exotic animals are abused and mistreated. The U.S. has the weakest laws to protect exotic animals, so it is up to most states to introduce legislation to protect them from a life they weren’t meant to live.
This non-profit organization is working toward giving captive wild animals that have been abused, neglected, abandoned or retired from performing a life-long home. It is staffed with people who have expertise in providing these animals with humane treatment, the highest standard of care and enriched lives as close to freedom as possible.
It is their mission to educate the public and to rescue, rehabilitate and provide life-long care to exotic and indigenous wildlife.
The preservation and protection of wildlife and the environment is paramount in their goals.
Donations are their only form of support. I’ve included a link that is their wish list so you can choose how you’d like to give.
I know they’ll appreciate your gift in whatever amount you choose.
Our goal is to protect America’s wild horses and burros by stopping the federal government’s systematic elimination of these national icons from our public lands.
To help save these beautiful wild horses through petitions or donations, please visit their website:
