Hey there!

I am looking for fellow hippies and art nerds from all over the world!

I am very passionate about art, music, travel, the environment and human/animal rights.
If you would like to discuss and share art (drawings, paintings, photography, anything you love) with me, share vegan recipes, rant about stuff, have a little book club, talk about shows on Netflix, or love music from the 60s and 70s (for example David Bowie, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin) and/or Indie bands (like Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead, The 1975), come say hi!
I love analyzing books and shows or art pieces and discussing current events.
Apart from all that nerdy stuff I am also a sucker for memes and puns and a huge animal lover. I have a dog who is my absolute best friend and I love looking at cute pictures and videos of all kinds of dogs and other cute animals.
I hope to one day inspire people with my art and make a difference as an activist for the beautiful humans and animals of this world as well as our planet itself.
But right now I am just a teenager who wants to make some new cool friends! I am very open-minded and nice so don’t be shy! :)

Preferences: People around my age would be great, maybe 16-20 :)

I bet you didn’t know that the Giraffe as a species is in serious trouble since populations have plummeted by nearly 40% in the past two decades across Africa.

Why? Well, it’s mainly due to major habitat loss, habitat degradation, and population fragmentation, worsened by illegal hunting and human population expansion. At the end of 2016, the Giraffe was uplisted on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species from “least concern” to “vulnerable”. While other African animals such as the rhino and elephant are known to be threatened worldwide, the Giraffe has not gained much attention at all and is silently slipping towards extinction. What no one realizes is that there’s actually less Giraffe than there are elephants…
Rigorous conservation efforts will need to be undertaken in order to restore declining populations. Greater awareness of this issue is the first step.
