So recently I’ve been feeling like I needed to do something. It’s easy to sit in circles with friends and talk about all the things that you want to do to help your community, but the hard part is actually doing it. This is me putting my actions where my mouth is and actually trying to make a difference. I wanted to help others, and I decided that I’d like to do something involving conservation because it is something I’ve always felt was immensely important. I read an article by the Smithsonian recently about how conservation for the “ugly animals” might be a lost cause, and I don’t think that’s true at all. So I created this site, for now I plan to blog about causes and species that need your help and eventually incorporate fundraising and donations.
