Fighting to protect the world’s animal species and environment can be daunting. For every victory, it seems like another group of foolish humans pops up and does something ridiculous! Between hunters, poachers, oil spills, and global warming, we just can’t catch a break! But at the end of the day, it’s all worth it once we remember what we’re fighting for.
This stunning time-lapse video from National Geographic sums up the hopes and goals of every animal activist everywhere in less than three minutes. If you’re ever feeling down or sad about the state of the world, find a quiet place and turn this bad boy on to perk right up. It sure worked for us!
Organizations across the world have been fighting (and winning) against the tide of environmental destruction, but they can’t do it without our help. We can all help protect the planet with our simple everyday actions. For example, did you know that you can halve your carbon footprint by leaving meat off the menu? Or that you can reduce your plastic footprint significantly just with a few simple swaps? To learn more about how you can start taking action right now – join One Green Planet’s #EatForThePlanet movement and check out the #CrushPlastic campaign.
Remember, we only get one earth. So let’s make it the best earth we possibly can!
