Having A Good time in a temporal Island

Having A Good time in a temporal Island

Having A Good time in a temporal Island, would you go for it? I wouldn’t even think twice about it. Its a big yes for me. And I have just a nice place that I will plan on a day to go and enjoy the ocean there.

Islands are naturally full of life and unique environment. I think water separates them from all the bad things until human developments happen.

Island that stays alive for four hours in a given season

During my visit to the ocean, I was shown a portion of the ocean that dries up sometimes. Allowing people to enjoy some calmness of the ocean within its vicinity. The place can remain dry for almost four hours, meaning, you can even hold a short party there.

When you are enjoying a boat ride, the breeze kisses your face in amazing ways. As the waves soothe your moods. The land continues to reduce in size as you sail deeper into the ocean.

Its normally feels like you are entering a different and new world. The feeling is incredible.

The Homely WCK Hostels in Mombasa

The Homely WCK Hostels in Mombasa. They are simply homes away from home. Strategically located at the best corner of Mombasa town.

During my recent visit to Mombasa, one of our friends recommended it for us. At first, I had some doubts since I wanted to have somewhere to spend my nights after all the fun during the day. A place I could rest with minimal to zero noise, comfortable beds, awesome food, and a clean environment. And WCK hostels in Mombasa offered all that and more.

It is a charitable, nonprofit organization formed in 1968 by Kenyan students. It was the first conservation education programme of its kind on the continent of Africa.

As you can already tell, they are friends to nature. And anyone friends to nature automatically qualifies to be my friend.

I have been its member since my junior years at school. But I had not yet tried their hostels.

Species that feed on plants are strong and have a long lifespan

Species that feed on plants are strong and have a long lifespan

Species that feed on plants are strong and have a long lifespan. Herbivores are some of the animal species that have been observed to live many years. If they are lucky enough to evade preditor’s wrath. Those who have no predictors, live to enjoy extreme old age. Is it related to their diet?

Plant-eating organisms

These are species whose diet is solely comprised of plant parts. We can refer to them as true vegans.

They can be divided into various groups depending on which plants they consume, or how they eat.

That is, we have those that feed on fruits ( Frugivores), nector (nectarivorous), etc. And we have the browsers that obtain leaves, stems and bark from plants. While grazers eat vegetation at the ground level.

Samples of these herbivores include:

  • Elephant
  • Rhino
  • Hippo
  • Buffalo
  • Giraffe
  • Wildebeest

As you can already tell, these are some of the most dangerous animals that even intimidate their predators.

Now you understand why the antelopes and other small herbivores, end up being the most targeted.

Does this mean that if we were to embrace the vegan diet, we could be strong?

Don’t Step on Corals, They are alive

Don’t Step on Corals, They are alive

Don’t Step on Corals, They are alive. And you wouldn’t like anyone stepping on you either. If you are having a boat ride or any other ride into the ocean with a captain who doesn’t care much about the environment, they may use it as a “fun thing” to do when you get at the deep end.

I have ever been a victim of that, I stepped on corals thinking they were dead

Sometime last year, when I visited the ocean, I did exactly that after been wrongly informed by my guide that that place had dead corals. In the spirit of promoting sustainable tourism, I decided to promote the locals by choosing them for my boat ride services.

Despite not having school know-how knowledge, they were well-informed about the ocean. They understood the area so well to a point of making someone fall in love with the place instantly.

When we got to the deep end, they offered to dive in and bring us some marine creatures. Which included two urchins, male and female. This is the point they encouraged me to enter the ocean and enjoy the waters. And since I didn’t have sufficient safety clothing, I expressed my concern. And that’s when he told him, that they were dead corals around us. SoI just had to step on them and I will be fine.

During my recent visit, is when I realized. They were not entirely truthful. The corals were very much alive and this means, I stepped and maybe killed some in the process. I felt really bad, I hate being a problem for the environment.

But am well-informed know, and I wouldn’t like you to make the same mistake.

So here are some of the tips to ensure you respect corals;

You may tend to think about how this is possible. After all, its just internet. The movies, tv shows, emails, songs, etc. How does that emit greenhouses gases?

Internet’s carbon footprint is contributed by work behind the scenes. The servers that make it possible for you to get the end product. These serves are powered by various types of energy which is mostly not clean. And they run 24/7.

Is Our Company Enough For Our Pets?

Is Our Company Enough For Our Pets?

Is our company enough for our pets? Especially those who have only one pet. Hence making them the unique species in the house. As much as they may enjoy our companionship, is it really enough? Or they silently wish they had contact with one of their kind?

Pets are social animals

I tend to think that animals that can be petted are social. And that’s why they are able to mix with humans.

As we know, social animals like being other animals. Either with their kind or other animals. Unlike the solitary ones that love being on their own.

With that said, does our companion alone fill their need of being with other animals. Or we are a cause of some loneliness in them.

When they need to play and you happen to be busy

Uganda cooking with Volcanic rocks to save their Forests

Uganda cooking with Volcanic rocks to save their Forests

Uganda cooking with Volcanic rocks to save their Forests. Isn’t that amazing? It’s great to see more countries embracing ways that are eco-friendly. Hence writing off the damage we have been causing our environment.

As much as we may need developments and innovations, we were blinded sided when it came to its effects on the environment. But not anymore. We are now conscious of our actions and choosing our moves carefully.

Forest cover has been reducing in our planet at an alarming rate. This is partly due to the need for firewood and charcoal for cooking. We have lost a huge number of indigenous trees for this need.

Not only did our cooking eliminate our trees, but it also introduced air pollution into our homes. Promoting respiratory diseases amongst ourselves.

So when we bump into such innovation, its a big win to all of us. This technology will help save the remaining forest cover, and cost by the community.

How does it work?

Would you eat dead skin? Why would you make another living organism eat it then? Yes, they feed on dead things when food is scarce or not available. But this does not allow us to subject them to this. On top of captivating them in tanks that are not that clean.

Denying any living organism food willingly is cruel and morally not acceptable. It is against animal rights to make them suffer.

Fish Pedicure

It a cosmetic treatment where one places their feet in a tank contains fish. Which nibble the dead skin from your feet.
