ecological activist

Please share and watch this documentary. 25 MILLION songbirds (as well as raptors and game birds) are massacred every year. Because of this I’ve never seen a turtle dove in the UK. How sad is that?

There were billions of passenger pigeons once. Look what happened.


Edit: I’m thrilled and amazed this has reached 100 notes (a huge thank you!) but I must make a small request. If you Like this post, please Reblog as well. A Reblog can get this issue more attention and increase awareness. A Like, to be blunt, does nothing. So please if you’ve Liked this post in the past please Reblog. And to all who may come across this, please Reblog. This is such an appalling and sad situation. If we can raise awareness then we can hopefully reduce it at least. Especially as these are hardly Malta’s and the Mediterranean’s birds as they spend 6 months in the UK, 2 days are spent in Malta, etc.

We’ve all seen the impact of the Internet on Seaworld. Let’s see if we can do the same for all these birds!

In 03.03.2016 was murdered well known ecological activist in Honduras - Berta Caceres!

The crime received wide coverage abroad, because 45-year-old Caceres recently led a campaign against the construction of a giant dam and hydroelectric power. The investment would flood a large area inhabited by Indians of the tribe Lenca and would deprive them sources of drinking water. Caceres led Indian protests. Her family revealed that for some time She constantly received death threats from construction companies, politicians and even police. Last Thursday, unknown perpetrators shot her in her hometown of La Esperanza, a distance of approx. 200 km north of the Honduras capital - Tegucigalpa. According to the family murder-crime was politically motivated. But the authorities claim that it was simply a criminal offense. The funeral turned into a demonstration against the government and large corporations. Were erected shouts “Berta lives, the struggle continues!” and “Justice!”. Rightly! She was the true daughter of Gaia, real Terran! R.I.P [*]
