Spring has finally arrived with its natural wonders awakening all around after months of slumber under a Winter's blanket. The soil's crust beginning to thaw and crack open as new life reaches out for the comfort of the sun's warm embrace. Olivera Davidoff Photography

The horror of a rhino butchered in a zoo for its horn brought worldwide attention to the slaughter and destruction of these majestic beasts, but that attention only lasted till the headlines died away. Governments from countries where poaching rages on a daily basis have stopped releasing the numbers of rhino, elephant and other animals being slaughtered by poachers. The thunderous clap of rifles are now followed by the silent cries of pain as living creatures are hacked for greed. What is needed to break through our indifference? Will it take another headline, 'The Rhino Has Been Classified Extinct', to jolt our attention? It is a frightening approaching reality. What will it take?

"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights" #GloriaSteinem.

Environment and its challenges is facing a world where economics have crashed and are struggling to find a new equilibrium. More and more nations turn to experimenting with what they see as non-traditional political leaders. That experiment brings with it upheaval. Few see environment as a crucial component of a healthy future, rather it is economics that heads the list of concerns. Through the world's teen years of the 40's to the 60's ignorance was the excuse, today we are fully aware of the potential consequences only now governments across the globe turn their heads away with self-induced blindness.

Should journalists join the "dark side" is not the real question. The real question is why has it taken so long for them to come out of the closet. Publishers choose what side of the political fence they graze on, their journalists simply obey. Today traditional media is crying about the shrinking advertising dollar, with little comment about the quality of journalism and pointing fingers at the CBC, Google, Facebook and more. The dark side has always been there, only in the past so was the courage and tenacity of Watergate to go head to head with it.

The most dangerous walk in a turtle's life. If they don't make it to the ocean quickly, many hatchlings will die of dehydration in the sun or be caught by predators like birds and crabs.

The German city of Essen is Europe's "Green Capital" in 2017, a title awarded by the European Commission, for its success in transitioning from a heavily polluting mining center to a clean and green economy. The award helps to highlight the crucial importance of city climate action in the run-up to the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn in November (COP23), hosted by the the UN and presided over by Fiji, with the support of the German government.
