August is a very interesting month. We as nature lovers are dedicating our podcasts, videos, songs and time to bring awareness about some other very interesting endangered and persecuted animals. As quoted by Albert Schweitzer "Animal protection is education to humanity." John chose to highlight a few like the Blue whale “Big boy Blue”, "Chipimbiri”,the rhino, “Ingwe Beautiful Loner” the leopard and others.
If you have been fortunate lo have visited any of South Africa’s Game Reserves like Kruger National Park and seen some of these incredible animals in the wild you will certainly agree – we must save them, protect them, create awareness, and stop all that are threatening the existence of these amazing beasts. If people think that animals don't feel, animals will have to feel that people don't think.
Wild animals are being poached on a massive scale with millions of individual animals of thousands of species worldwide killed or captured from their native habitats. Poaching poses a growing threat to elephants, rhinos, and other charismatic animals, as well as to smaller and more obscure creatures, like the pangolin, certain lizards and monkeys. In addition to killing for direct profit, poachers target animals for financial gain, selling their horns, scales, meat and more. This happens to lions, rhino and elephants in Africa, as well as to wolves, coyotes, and other predators in North America and beyond.
Poaching for the exotic pet trade affects an animal’s welfare in addition to its numbers in the wild. Most wild animals eat specialized diets found in nature, like the Pangolin, it only eats ants and termites and is very particular about its ant preferences. Captured animals are stuffed into boxes, suitcases, or sacks, and even if they survive transport, they often suffer in their new, unnatural situations.
Our plea this month is for YOU to spread the word and “Make a stand”
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
-- Mahatma Gandhi
Always remember, that there are times when you need the silence of animals to recover from humans.
So, Till September,
Thank you for taking a stand!
“Stand for the Pangolin”
