#Climatechangeisreal

“Elephants show compassion, sympathy, social intelligence, self awareness. They’re excellent at learning abilities. All the things I have yet to see in this president.” - Ellen DeGeneres
Following the Trumps decision to allow hunters to bring "trophy" elephants into the U.S., Ellen stood up for the majestic creatures and called on viewers to help her raise awareness for her cause using #BeKindtoElephants on social media.
For everyone who reposts or retweets her photo, we'll make a donation to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
I don't normally post anything other than pics of Josie however, as a lover of all animals and nature, and as an environmental scientist, I am appalled and disgusted with Trump and his push to ban the import of elephant trophies.
Elephants are endangered and it is predicted that African Elephants could be extinct by 2020 - that is less than 3 years away.
If you feel strongly about this too, please share this pic with the 'BeKindToElephants' hashtag so the donation is made - but also to hopefully stop this evil decision from happening.

Winter may finally be here... we’ll see if it sticks around. It’s time to do something. This is not just one winter or even a few seasons. Let’s do something about it. .

Mental health and psychological disorders has risen according to independent groups monitoring those displaced by extreme weather conditions and calamities. Signos, which has been used in Philippine literature as a term for forewarning or what local fishermen use to read if there’s a storm coming, has been the central theme of my project. An obvious sign if a new norm and also a re-examination on how we view resilience amongst the displaced.

Another extinct friend, the Eskimo Curlew (Numenius borealis). The Wikipedia page for this bird is interesting because it’s written in both present and past tense. I appreciate the optimism of present tense, but these birds are gone. This will happen to more birds and other animals unless we start being kinder to the planet and all who share it.

"I live in a new world now. A world dominated by this ogre that won’t let go its grip. An ogre that is consuming the world I knew and loved. Forcing my hand. Making me so sad. I’m feeling sorry for myself. I didn’t have a choice! It was fucking climate change!" - new blog post full of self-pity if you're in the mood for some of that!
