It's #worldwildlifeconservationday so here's some pics of animals from my travels to Argentina/Costa Rica 🦁
Unfortunately, yesterday thr president chose to shrink two of our national monuments by millions of acres to open them to oil and gas drilling. This is the case around the world, and the problem isn't just oil and gas. We're losing the rainforests at a rate of more than 150 acres EVERY MINUTE of every day, along with the animals that used to inhabit them. We cannot continue to ignore the destruction our everyday actions cause.
▪️7 million acres of land in the US have been lost to oil and gas drilling in the last 15 years alone
▪️worldwide, 137 animal and plant species become extinct every day because their habits are destroyed by deforestation
▪️91% of deforestation is for the purpose of animal agriculture
Consider eating less meat, switching to milk alternatives, buying less plastic, buying local, using public transportation or using hybrid vehicles, and educating yourself on where the items you buy and the food you eat comes from. The earth was made for all beings, not just human beings. Happy world wildlife conservation day ❤️
