Good evening Google + community!
I haven't been active for several months but today I feel passionate about making a return, due to a horrific event that has recently occurred.

Many of those reading this will know about the shooting of a 17 year old male silverback gorilla, named Harambe at Cincinnati Zoo.

This truly unacceptable shooting came as a result of a young child entering the gorilla's enclosure. Despite Harambe safely taking the child further down the enclosure, away from the screaming crowd above, the zoo stated that it was "life threatening" behaviour.

I am truly disgusted by humanity.

Firstly, I don't believe in zoos or any money-making companies that believe in lowering an animal's chance of life. These schemes restricted the amount of space and habitual tasks required by the animals, to live how they're designed. I find it utterly horrendous to see,during this era, still thousands of animals being isolated and trapped in small refined locations, instead of living free in the wild.

Secondly, how dare the mother of the child even be angry! Has she ever heard of parental care? Who lets their child to freely walk into an animal's enclosure, this number 1 is plain idiotic, and number 2 provides the gorilla with even less privacy than he already had.

During the video clip, it shows Harambe take full protection of the young child, so I think as humanity we all deserve answers as to why this beautiful creature was put to death. FREE ALL ANIMALS! Harambe didn't aim to harm the little boy, he wanted to protect him!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To Harambe,

I'm sorry humanity is so toxic and wicked that your life was a result of our selfishness. I'm sorry your species is becoming increasingly endangered due to humanity's cruel characteristics. I'm sorry that your love and habitual gratitude to the boy caused unintelligent homosapiens to act so deadly.

I promise you I will not give up the fight.
Rest in Peace sweet sweet Harambe, you deserved all happiness.

He probably wouldn't even have drug the child like he did if the people watching wouldn't have freaked out. Zoos are too quick to shoot their animals

Happy International Tiger Day! 

Today marks a regular date of the year: 29th July 2015, but it also crowns a day for the big cats. Today is subject to the glorious tigers - lets embrace and commend their brilliance and tranquility right here, on planet earth. 

These mammals swarm in strength and power, contributing as a community of visual glory and passion. Renowned for their self defence and optic ways of survival, tigers are truly commendable. 

These incredible carnivores sure do have an appetite! A hungry tiger can eat as much as 60 pounds (27 kilograms) in one night, though they usually eat less. Insane! 

Although this magnificent animals exist on our planet and live with focus, they now face a troubling challenge. In just over 100 years (from 1913), our world has witnessed a drastic deflate of 97% of all tigers! 

How can this be!?!?

Once again it's due to our human race. Our fellow people, who crave  being selfish and foolish. 
A few subjects that slice the population of this wonderful creatures are due to  people selling tigers in black markets, as well as local community dependence on forests for fuel wood, food and timber also heightens the risk of tiger attacks (also deforestation).

We need to stop! 

There has been a recorded estimate to indicate that only 3200(approx) exist, and a horrifying fact states that tigers may only survive for five more years. 

These unique animals need safety. 

We as a global population, should be driven to help these helpless mammals -  ignorance is no option.   #WWF

Please comment down below your thoughts on 'International Tigers Day' and their threat to becoming extinct - I'd love to hear them. :D 

Lets celebrate their existence and magnificent ways of being truly astonishing creatures with so much grace and stamina, by helping more tigers being brought into life, to recruit more help to leap out of danger and endangerment/extinction. 

#savethetigers  

Below I have linked  TWO National Geographic pages for more information on the Bengal Tiger and the Siberian Tigers, which both include awesome images and fascinating information. Also, I have linked a WWF page for extra support towards these incredible beasts - if you would like to donate please do, but if you don't want to spend any of your  money please spread the awareness - anything helps! Finally, I have linked an official tiger day website which is full of knowledge, and will help you understand even further the utter importance of these animals! 

The awesome WWF website is wonderful for educating people on the importance of these animals. It includes a vast variety of information on the threats we humans are causing them, as well as content on the different tiger families. 

Thank you so much for reading this post! 

Share the awareness - tigers must be saved! 

Have a great day! :D

Good afternoon Google+ readers! 

For today's post, I feel very passionate to express my feelings on the sudden event that has taken place within the United Kingdom, during the last few days. 

Recently the government in the UK imposed an acceptance to the use of sinister seeds that with the use of toxins, will be targeted and used in an attack towards the bee community, in order to reach a goal of acclimatizing in the number of deaths of this tropic and humble creature. 

As soon as I heard the news on this evil and disruptive event, I leaped onto the web to find out more information, as I was truly conflicted and confused about the ignorant people within the UK government. 
In all honestly, I was left again saddened to know that not everyone had heard about this viscous attack that was due to take place. 

The innocent and intelligent insect known as the bee, excels in hard work and offers our planet a lot. From shooting up the plant growth, to making honey whilst increasing our global food supply. This is totally one hell of a magnificent one. 

I urge you to be apart of the community to stop the devils in disguise that work for the UK government. It really is important. 

Currently there is a petition taking place to prevent this genocide from occurring, of course  I have signed it and I beg you (if you live in the UK, that is) to sign it too. 
It really does help! 
(And if you aren't from the UK, please still share this to your fellow folks.The more people that know, the quicker we can annihilate the ghastly government). 

Feel free to share your thoughts on this topic by sharing your own post and use the hashtag: #savethebeesUK  

Thank you very much for reading this post. 

Below I have linked the petition if you would like to sign it, whilst including beautifully written facts and captured graphics on the National Geographic website. 

Lets save these marvelous insects and make our planet a better and equal environment. 

Have a great day! :D

Saturday Sprints! 

Hello World, I'm back finally posting again and within my most deepest truth, it feels amazing. Super excited to share more images upon this platform, whilst enduring myself with conversations between you guys. 

A cheetah has been selected today to display the hard work I need to excel this weekend, as I have a mountain of work and study for school next week before half term. 

Comment down below telling me about your plans for this weekend.
Until then, a new post will be up tonight at 8pm (UK Time) with more depth on the debate on Whales and Sea world. 

Enjoy your day!

Happy Tuesday fellow Google+ readers! 

With huge grief and sadness I feel oblige and compelled to share a truly horrific and devilish event that has taken place reportedly on the 1st July, 2015. 

Cecil was the name of a most beautiful 13 year old lion, who was drastically placed to death by an American dentist who paid £32,000 ($50,000), to two men in order to kill this marvelous mammal. 

I am truly disgusted and ashamed to be apart of the human race, knowing that this has occurred and that our world contains ignorant and vile people, patrolling our earth with the  lack of respect or compassion towards the living things that make up our varied and unique planet. 

Knowing things like this occur on a day to day basis, makes me strive further to help save these beautiful creatures when I get older. 

Cecil was known as a huge tourist attraction at the famous Hwange National Park, and his six cubs now face danger by the male lion who takes over the pride - more innocent animals face death. 

This needs to stop! #WWF  

I am truly sickened about this evil event - how could anyone treat these beautiful and modest creatures with the lack of respect and decency?

 Truly disgusting! 

The men - a professional hunter and a farm owner - could be sentenced to up to 15 years in prison in Zimbabwe if they are found guilty. They are due to appear in court on Wednesday.

I pray and hope that the two men and the dentist himself suffer long and hard. But deep down, no length of time in prison or large fine pays the price for the loss of this incredible carnivore. I will never accept the reason that the two poachers needed the money - murder shouldn't be classified as an excuse. 

Please share you thoughts on this topic - I'd love to hear them! 

I've linked below a BBC News webpage for more on the story, a National Geographic link for more information on the importance of the African Lion, and a WWF link to help prevent these beautiful and thrilling wonderful animals from becoming endangered. 

Within the WWF page and all across the web there is the chance to adopt lions or to donate money in order to save these carnivores - one lion at a time. If you would like to donate, please click on the WWF link, you will truly make a difference. 

Approximately, only 30,000 - 35,000 remain on earth. 
Please help in supporting their survival! 
#savethelion  

RIP Cecil. 

Thank you very much for reading this post.
Have a great day! :D

Happy Wednesday!

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Advice for today:

Be a lion not a sheep.

In life people will say that you can't do things, that you won't achieve. It's your time to prove them wrong.

Go outside and live a life that you strive for.
With hard work and dedication you can do anything.
Make your dreams a reality.

Comment down any goals that you want to achieve/have achieved.

Let's create some positivity!
LIVE BRUH!
#LOVE
