https://www.facebook.com/donate/678095942582534/ For my birthday this year, I'm asking for donations to Wildlife S.O.S. I had the pleasure of meeting one of the founder's (Kartick Satyanarayan) of this incredible organization at the Animal Law Conference a few years ago. They are located in India. However, the work they do has impacted all wildlife in India as well as the poor people. They help to teach them not to use wildlife in order to earn money from tourists. They have taught them to earn money from real jobs. Most importantly they rescue animals from all situations and provide them a safe haven. They fight in India's court system and help to promote better legislation. They may not be a rescue in America, but they are probably on of the hardest working organizations world wide and deserve our respect. We can learn a lot of this organization and its hardworkiing people! MY favorite animal is the Bengal Tiger and they are going extinct. As are many animals all around the world. Please if you can, donate to Wildlife SOS. You are not only helping in the rescue of innocent sentient beings, but you are providing for their safety. Thank you all!! I hope you'll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. #wildlifesos #wildlifesosindia #karticksatyanarayan #protectwildlife #indianwildlife #everydollarcounts #pleasedonate #awareness #educate #compassion #rescue #wildliferescue #animallaw #animallawconference #animallawconference2015

Today, June 5th, 2018, is World Environment Day. Yes, everyday has it's own national or global purpose now. However, one like World Environment Day, should be celebrated everyday. I know, it sounds cliche. But, it is true. The environment brings forth life to all organisms creating plant and animal matter. We as humans, have destroyed much of the planet through our quest for profit. https://fighttofreedomandpreservationofthewild.com/2018/06/05/380/. #newblogpost #newblogger #environmentalblog #nomoreplastic #endplastic #worldenvironmentday #worldenvironmentday2018 #saveourplanet #recyclereusereduce #freedom_preservationofthewild

Did you know May is called "Wetlands Month"?! I wish I knew earlier that it was #WetlandsMonth! My entire passion and reason for going to law school is to protect the Everglades. Once, one of the largest wetlands in the state of Florida and in the world!! While in law school I wrote my upper level writing requirement on the everglades and restoring it. [ 738 more words ] https://fighttofreedomandpreservationofthewild.com/2018/05/31/last-day-of-wetlands-month/. #wetlandsmonth #protectourwetlands #everglades #restoretheeverglades #freedom_preservationofthewild #newblogpost #newblogger #checkoutnewblog #wordpressblogger #environmentallaw #animallaw #floridaliving

Pollution. The definition according to Webster’s dictionary is : “the action of polluting especially by environmental contamination with man-made waste.”

Ah, there’s the key word – “man-made waste”. Everything humans create is not natural to the planet, i.e. pollution. Majority of the products created throughout mankind’s history are not from natural resources. From the inception of humans we have always formed and created tools from either things in nature or now, in a lab or a factory. Many of the items we have grown to become accustom to in our everyday lives are actually the very products that are leading the epidemic of pollution.

For example, plastic water bottles. These items are created for individual, one sale use. The demand for single use items has grown exponentially over the years. however, the demand is not only by the “industrialized nations”, such as the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and so on and so forth. There is a plethora of single use water bottles in “third world” countries all around the world! Why? Well, if the “better” nations are doing this and leading by example, then we must follow suit. The issue is simple: these items take 450 years (yes, you read that correctly, that is FOUR centuries!)

What is the other problem with plastic water bottles? The amount of oil used to create them! So, we are using a non-renewable resource to create something that will not decompose in any of our lifetimes. Some have said it is roughly over 1.6 million barrels of oil to make plastic water bottles.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) is unable to provide a real number for the amount of crude oil that is used to produce plastic. Then whom is responsible for knowing these specific amounts? ( I will do some real legal research and come back and update this post).

The purpose of this post was to show that we are responsible for pollution. Everything that humankind has created is with a single purpose. Once those items have fulfilled their purpose they are literally thrown away! There is not even a thought to repurpose them, recycle them, or reuse them in another fashion. This is for glass, plastic, cardboard, paper, napkins and the list goes on!

Collectively, we need to find a way to reduce the DEMAND for single use items. Imagine a world where all you saw was trash every step you made. Oh, wait… we already live in that world.

Here are some images from my stroll in Port Canaveral, Florida this past weekend. I was abhorred to see the amount of trash I did in every single turn!

 

I was disgusted and disappointed. I could not fathom that I descended from one of the “most” intelligent species to see such disregard for the environment. For those of you that are not familiar with Florida’s geography. Port Canaveral is of course near NASA, but it is also the major Port for cruise vessels. That means the ocean is right there!

Below is an image of my location.

One of the biggest causes of sea life death, pollution! So, if you are littering all over near the ocean, odds are majority of this trash is going to wind up in the ocean.

What can we do? I will admit, I did not see a lot of recycling or trash receptacles. However, that does not mitigate our duty to do our due diligence and pick up and throw or recycle items!

We only have one planet, please take care of it. If you have any other suggestions or things you have seen work, please feel free to comment!
