Celebramos el Día Internacional de la Madre Tierra para recordar que el planeta y sus ecosistemas nos dan la vida y el sustento. Con este día, asumimos, además, la responsabilidad colectiva, como nos recordaba la Declaración de Río de 1992, de fomentar esta armonía con la naturaleza y la Madre Tierra.
Este día nos brinda también la oportunidad de concienciar a todos los habitantes del planeta acerca de los problemas que afectan a la Tierra y a las diferentes formas de vida que en él se desarrollan.
ABOUT BEING CONSCIOUS
My first memory of global warming is from the second grade where we made awareness posters of the earth melting on top of an ice-cream cone. I had no idea what it was.
The next time I thought about it was in fifth grade where they told me it “would takes centuries”. 11-year-old me was like “I’ll be dead, not my problem.” Terrible, but I was 11... what’s YOUR excuse?
The truth is: we hear about Global Warming so much that it has desensitized us to it. Let me rephrase global warming for you:
- Your house is burning down.
- Your planet (the only one you’ve ever know) is DYING
YOU reading this are ALREADY LIVING IT. Just because your home hasn’t flooded or experimented a drought doesn’t mean someone else hasn’t.
So, stop thinking you have time and stop thinking it’s someone else’s problem or stop not thinking about it at all.
There are thousands of ways for you to make small changes in your life that add up to a HUGE difference for the world. Start now. #EarthIsJustOne

Today is Earth Day and this is something that is actually pretty important to me. The past 6 months or so I've really been trying to recycle to the point of even taking other people's recyclables. We only have so many resources and it is important to be efficent with them so we can share them with everyone including future generations not to mention the environmental impact it has. There really is no reason not to recycle. If you need information on where or how you can recycle I will be more than willing to help you get started. Cheers guys have a wonderful day. #recycle#earth#conservation#earthday#recylclebro
Here's your Monday dose of wake up...
Most don't release when you take on debt you become a slave to the debtor, we live in times this is less evident but still true.
America is a slave to China & Saudi Arabia.
Why does Amerikkka have such a problem with our prior longtime ally Venezuela while happy to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia (Petro Dollar), Saudi Arabia just happens to be one of the countries with the worst human rights violations in the world, along with our other major debtor China. China who is also buying up Africa and South America as they will soon deplete their own homeland's natural resources with their marriage to industry and manufacturing.
Venezuela is about oil rights not politics, money... why are the networks silent about Yemen? Who owns them... same people who decide to shadow ban people like me who care enough to address these gross human travesties... Not only is Yemen a proxy between Iran and Saudi Arabia, it is also home to one of the oldest Jewish communities in the world... China is on pace to deplete their natural resources in less than two decades and have been buying up Africa, South America and other strategic or desirable land assets with aggressive acquisition and debt/investment/asset seizure tactics... while America is distracted by the classic divide and conquer tactics we see effectively ruining our country thanks to Money Puppet Democrats & Republicans alike. #repost@rhinosurfer

Human rights and environmental organizations are also readying for a flood of new infrastructure in the Amazon, including the resurrection of controversial dam projects. Poirier says environmental groups expect the new congress to change laws to weaken environmental protections and “rubber stamp” the permitting process for dams, highways and mines.

Happy Earth Day 🌍 Let’s continue to fight the battle against the climate and ecological crisis the earth is suffering through. Live sustainably and protect our oceans by refusing single-use plastics. Join beach cleans or carry out your own litter picks in your free time. Reduce your carbon footprint by walking and enjoying nature, instead of driving. Do not support insecticides, pesticides or herbicides, instead use environmentally friendly pest control methods like marigolds. Plant many bee friendly flowers in your garden, or support trusts who restore habitats. Love and cherish the insects, pollinators, wildlife and plants that you see - without them our ecosystems would collapse. Please do your part in helping save our one beautiful planet 💙
Observers fear Bolsonaro’s rhetoric and policies will increase violence across the Amazonian regions. In January, Bolsonaro made it easier for Brazilians to buy and own guns. Meanwhile, Brazil is known as the deadliest place in the world for environmental defenders, according to Global Witness, a nonprofit organization that works at the intersection of conservation and human rights.

Happy #InternationalMotherEarthDay . Today we celebrate to remind each of us that the Earth and its ecosystems provide us with life and sustenance. Today's theme, ‘Protect our Species’, is aimed at drawing attention to the rapid extinction of species across the world. #earthday2019 📷: @matt_durell
Through experiments on five generations of #zebrafish , a research team in Berlin found that size-selective harvesting affects boldness, activity, and sociability, but only when smaller size-classes are targeted. This study aimed to better understand how fish respond to commercial fishing pressure. Zebrafish are a helpful model organism for studying how we can better understand behavior in fish stocks and improve sustainable fish harvest.

We have something we hope all of you do. As yesterday we celebrated the life of Jesus, today we reflect on God. For the never ending beauty of nature that is spread across our world, we can thank the Lord. So here is the deal. We all live in a fast-paced environment now. Even for outdoorsmen, it’s check your trail cams or check your stand and get out. From here on out, every single time you step out into your hunting location of choice, take a minute. In that minute, stop, relax your mind, admire the beauty of what God has created for us, and be thankful that you have the opportunity to experience it and protect it.
“Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’” -Genesis 1:26
What an honor God has bestowed upon us! Hunting is the best form of conservation. The Lord is thankful that we care for his creations.

Happy Earth Day! 50% of proceeds from Rock The Ocean apparel goes back to our conservation partners, make today a special way to give back to our planet 🌎 😍 (Link in bio)
The original Aldabra giant tortoises living on Changuu Island (“Prison Island”), were gifted to a British government dude living in Zanzibar in 1919 (what’s up with government people and rich folks thinking it’s cool to yank animals out of their habitats and ship them all over the world for no good reason 🤔). This species is endemic to the Seychelles and isn’t found naturally anywhere else in the world.
This tourist attraction is billed as a “conservation project”, but there’s plastic strewn all over their grazing areas (which they are 100% ingesting), and people are touching and sitting all over them for photos, which seems to be encouraged (or at least tolerated) by the staff 🤷♀️. Unique experience to see so many of these up close, though... they’re pretty adorable 🐢. #tanzania#eastafrica#africa#explore#travel#nature#wanderlust#nomad#wildlife#animals#conservation#tortoise#aldabra#aldabratortoise#swahilicoast#changuuisland#prisonisland#zanzibar
