I wasn’t going to post today because I have a post all ready for tomorrow, but you all know how passionate I am about this sort of thing and I wanted to have my say too.
Wildlife is my favouritee thing ever! I love forest walks and going to reserves and taking pictures and just listening to birds and spotting otters! It’s the best thing ever 🙂
I found out that it was #nationalwildlifeday today (September 4th) on twitter, which is trending right now (I’m glad it is because so many people would have missed it if it wasn’t!)
Firstly we should say thank you to wildlife- so many species have to put up with us- there’s the sea plastic and the roadkill and rising temperatures and tree destroying and then there’s the melting.
It’s a shame. Not just that this is happening. But that we are all aware of it. And still let it go on.
It’s time to stop that and move on positively. You’d be stupid to ignore it and not want to do something, just that little something every day to help- use less power that isn’t needed- donate your old clothes to charity instead of throwing them away or even planting more greenery and flowers- it all helps, so so much.
Yes– this is all going on- we’re not in the best state– but- of course, there’s always hope. And you have to believe in that hope to improve things.
Trees- ARE being planted. Desperate animals ARE being helped by charities. And we are making slow progress. But that doesn’t mean we should just sit back still- I’m asking us all to do little things to help the planet and save wildlife because if we don’t- we may not have our home left either.
If you are stuck on ways to help- there are plenty of websites online where you can join in activities locally, and I’ve also made a little list you can use too. 🙂
- Do 3 things every day to use less power
- Turn down your screen brightness
- Plant flowers on your windowsill or garden
- Make a pile of leaves and damp twigs for wildlife and hedgehogs ^-^
- Put a bird box up in a tree
- Reblog this post and comment things you’ve done
- Let a patch of your lawn (if you have one) grow wild
- Post on social media about the hashtag
- Go a whole day/week without using your phone/laptop
- Have fun doing it!
Thank you for taking your time to read this- I’d love to know what little bits you’re doing for the lil guys! ❤
