World Wildlife Day

World Wildlife Day poster

Liz at Nature on the Edge posted today about WWD2020, and rather than trying to improve upon her words, I share them here. Worth the visit! Let’s all do our part to maintain and strengthen the bonds that tie us all together on this beautiful planet.

  1. What a beautiful video. Brought tears to my eyes. And such wise words. Also, really, really like the graphics on that poster.

  2. Nice post, love the poster, and I also really like your header shot.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Eliza. Events like this are getting lost beneath election and virus coverage.

      True… and in the scheme of things, I think ultimately, the planet deserves top billing. 😉

      If I may, I would add that the virus issue is directly related to biodiversity loss. It seems to have originated in a wildlife market, exactly like SARS did. The trafficking of wildlife for food and traditional remedies is not only a threat to biodiversity – it poses very real risks to us all.

    We are ‘only a link’ & we should use that power we have, properly!

    We live in difficult times for wildlife. I look for good news stories and sometimes they’re hard to find. What is especially difficult is that a lot of the damage is so totally unnecessary – e.g. my local farmers now cut their hedgerows each year which makes them almost useless to wildlife. There’s no reason; it actually costs them extra money to do that for zero benefit. But they do it anyway because that’s what most modern farmers do. (In the past, they’d have been cut once in 3 – 7 years, providing much more food and shelter.)

    I’m currently having an argument with my local golf course who have refused to cooperate in even very low impact habitat restoration. Again, no real motive; it wouldn’t harm their business at all, but they just don’t care. It remains to be seen if the planned changes to the UK’s environmental laws will be strong enough to make a real difference with indifferent landowners.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      So true, Adele. Worldwide, our wildlife is in grave peril and if they go, we go. Unfortunately, few get this. Ignorance of the way nature works is going to be our downfall unless enough people can wake up and turn the tide.

    Beautiful and important Eliza 🍀🌲

  10. Thanks for spreading the word, Eliza!

  11. I fear that our cumulative damage to our planet and its inhabitants will take much longer to undo than it took to get to this point. And it just keeps on going.
