Nature and Wildlife are the beauty of our planet

Nature and Wildlife are the beauty of our planet. From the colorful colors and unique shapes. Have you ever seen an “ugly’ tree, flower or even wildlife.

Everything in the natural world is beautiful due to the beauty added by wildlife and flora.

Their beauty have inspired our fashion

Most of the fabrics resemble patterns of both flora and fauna (plants and animals).

Who doesn’t love animal prints. From the amazing stripes resembling zebras, the unique dots inspired by cheetahs, leopards, just to name a few.

This is also one of the threat facing wildlife. Because we not only copy their style, but end up killing them for it. To get a snake skinned bag, or a pouch made of girraffe hide, mats and coats from wildlife fur.

We are allowed to copy cat their style but not kill them. Fur, hide and skin belongs to them. And not to be used for our shoes, bags, coats, etc.

Their beauty offer the best interior and exterior designs

Have you ever visited a place whose decorations and design has been inspired by nature or wildlife. From the furniture, walls, roofing and simply everything in them.

There’s this place where the owner ha constructed an artificial waterfall. He has all kind of colorful birds which have roofless houses. Hence can be able to fly away when they want. An aquarium and all the furniture are from trees at their raw state. No smoothing has been done .

Spending a weekend there is the best idea you can ever have. Allows you to experience nature at a whole other new level.

Gone are the days when we had the boring walls painted of one color. Nowadays, we are not afraid to add more color.

Extinction means forever

“Humanity can no longer stand by in silence while our wildlife are being used, abused and exploited.
It is time we all stand together, to be the voice of the voiceless before it’s too late. Extinction means forever.”
Paul Oxton

Climate change, global warming, extinction of species, among others have been in our news for many years. But recently, it has been getting some backup. People are more alert and interested to understand what it entails. Although we are not yet where we need to be, but at least we are making good progress.

Nations have been holding talks and conferences to find solutions for a better environment. Everyone is interested in and working for both a green economy and blue sky. Climate change agenda is finally penetrating into governance.

Did you know that there some countries with no wildlife in the wild. But rather in zoos and controlled areas. This is due to different factors such as:

  • Land encroachment.
  • Introduction of invasive species.
  • Over-hunting (over-fishing included).
  • Over exploitation.
  • Human-wildlife conflicts.
  • And many others.

Wildlife are amazing creatures to interact with especially the ones in the wild. The captured ones are more like the domestic animals due to the controlled conditions.

Just like the way we enjoy watching nature documentaries. It’s way cooler enjoying a game drive or camping and being able to be with the animals. Studying them is one of the most interesting study you could ever want to. They will always surprise and amaze you.

Have you ever watched the simplest animals like butterflies, beetles, ants, wasps. Get to observe how they operate and relate with each other. You will notice they are not very different from us. As well as surprise you how organized they are.

Imagine all that awesomeness disappearing due to our negative impact to the environment. A planet with no wildlife will be like a graveyard. No birds to wake us up with beautiful songs, no cricket noises in the evening and no watching lions pursuing an antelope. It will be a boring planet.

Picture a very busy city like New York or even Nairobi. The heavy traffic of both vehicles and humans. Running up and down like mad men and women. Some of them not knowing where they are heading or doing. They are just on the move.

The atmosphere filled with harmful gases and fresh air because a looked for commodity. Cities that run around the clock whereby you easily miss out weekends and holidays. Since you fail to recognize them due to busy and tight schedules.

Extinction means forever. And there’s no coming back. It’s a dead dead situation. Once it claims something, it goes for good. Just like dinosaurs and other extinct species did.
