OK wild animals are in this post so be careful as you navigate through it.!
Taronga zoo is a place that actually looks after animals and is a not for profit and is heavily into conversation for all sorts of animals around the world.
The displays of these amazing illuminated animals come alive when the sun has set and the lights come on. I was getting lessons of animal inditifaction, as the excited children shout out the name of a new animal to their respective parents as they go around the zoo.
The link to the Zoo is below
Enjoy some of the animals, I have only uploaded a few on this blog the rest will be uploaded very shortly to https://500px.com/mchphoto2015
I have just had a short walk via a marina in Sri Lanka, but this could any marina around the world. I looked at the water and initially saw some fish, then the small jellyfish, but then looking a little deeper I saw the sad realization that the area had plastic and other debris in it, polystyrene, glass bottles, bottle caps etc. Now, I know there are turtles in this area as there is a small sanctuary on Lavinda beach not to far from where I was standing.
As turtle’s eat jelly fish, but when they look exactly like a white plastic bag, then we have problems. I can see in my minds eye the turtle eating this plastic stuff that mankind put in the water either by accident or deliberately I do not care. Plastic is not fish, turtle or anyone’s food, well would you eat a plastic bag?, Thought not.
The turtle will die eventually, so would we if we keep eating contaminated food.
So why does our sea life eat them, because it looks like food to them.
These photographs I took made me sad and we really have to stop using plastic bags in our lives, in reality we do not need them, there are plenty of alternatives out there. Lets get using the alternatives NOW.
Our Grandparents did not use plastic bags, so why do we have to? Clean out our drawers, cupboards under the sink etc and dispose of those plastic bags ASAP in the correct manner. Why not take them back to the supermarket and get them to dispose of them correctly, after all it is them who are responsible for giving them to us in the billions.
To all you supermarkets, there is no excuse now, stop giving them away or charging for them. Do something else than what the government tells you to do for the sake of the environment and your children’s future on this planet as we are suffering now, just think what your children’s future looks like if we do NOT do anything now.
I wonder which supermarket will be the first to do something different on this front?.
Take them off your inventory list and never order them again. Introduce better ways to carry out shopping home. Force us to do so. Even those plastic bags for life are no good, we want bags that are made to last that do not come out of plastic derived in any form. They are out there, you have to source them for us at a reasonable cost you can do it, you have the teams in place to actually do this, so why are you not doing this?
Maldives paradise or Dumping ground
