How to Save Africa's Elephants – Intelligent Travel

In the 1980s, I did a stint as a wildlife researcher in Kenya. I witnessed a decade of unprecedented slaughter of African elephants by poachers, out to profit from rising ivory demand in Asia's fast-growing economies of the day.
Justin Dancing Hawk's insight:

Artists donating works or a portion of the proceeds of the sales of subject specific works help to fund efforts to stop illegal activities & assist in conservation efforts while increasing public appriciation of WIldlife species, especiall those which are endangered or on the verge of extinction.

Declare Your Independence From Plastic

Declare Your Independence From Plastic | Helping Wildlife Conservation Through Art | Scoop.it
Last week my colleague Sara wrote a blog post introducing us to the idea of "Plastic Free July." It inspired me to accept the challenge and declare my independence from single-use plastic this month.

Justin Dancing Hawk's insight:

If it weren't for Plastics & the unwanted news papers ( Paper SPAM! ) that I get in the mail. . . I could almost do WITHOUT garbage service!!! HONESTLY! I only get picks once per month as it is! Most of that is Paper & Plastic! I didn't even put any GARBAGE waste out this month at all! ( Save the Puppy Litterbox )

Technology has been available for well over 50 yrs & it will never change if the citizens of the world don't DEMAND it! Take the power out of Big Oil Companies! New technology once replaced the Horse in the transportation Industry & now it's time for Oil to go the same way!
