@natgeo photo by @stevewinterphoto yesterday was World Wildlife Day for BIG CATS!!!!
ANIMALS HAVE EMOTIONS TOO!! We need to realize deep in our hearts that animals have emotions too.
If we can treat them better - maybe we could find some empathy inside of us to treat each other better also.
There are only 3500 tigers left in the wild! We need to fight for the right of tigers to live - peacefully and without being killed for the traditional medicine market, tiger bone wine, tiger skin furniture and other trade. Help stop the demand for endangered species used in this practice!
Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families,
they feed themselves and their families in the same way we as humans used to! If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions, maybe we can treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet.
They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not.
