Furry Friends

The animal kingdom is having a hard time with the constant destruction of our planet to develop our species further. Over population means taking land to build houses, create jobs & feed the expanding mass of people. In turn this reduces the habitat for many species if not the total destruction there of. I name this gallery “Furry Friends” because we need them more than they need us, a world without animals & birds is a sad thought indeed.

My attempts at capturing any form of animal are reduced to those that are present as I am in the vicinity and not through painstaking sitting it out. I also admit to shooting animals in a zoo occasionally although I am not really keen on the idea of caged animals for the pleasure of us humans. Unfortunately it is for many people like myself not possible to see a Siberian Tiger in their natural habitat. I must admit though that such animals couped up in their small spaces, pacing back and forth does make me contemplative.

Even worse than this though is the slaughter of many species through ruthless poachers and traders of rare species for money. It breaks my heart when I see or hear how animals are so badly treated. Watching poachers shoot Elephants for their tusks or murdering a Cheetah for its fur seem so pointless to me especially with the ignorance towards the fact that these are endangered species or will soon become one. Of course these people too have to earn money to feed their families but the point is that those that hunt don’t earn the big bucks but others in the cities in their air-condtioned homes & offices. These poor creatures can’t speak for themselves, we have to speak and act for them. A good way to do this is to join an organisation like the World Wildlife Fund.

“In a world where so much that is wild and free has been lost to us, we must leave these beautiful animals free to swim as they will and must. They do us no harm and wish us none and we should let them alone.”

Did You Know?

The undisputed champion of mammalian evolutionary distinctiveness, duck-billed platypuses are the last living members of a family that originated 150 million years ago. The Australian egg-layers are so odd that some scientists have considered them reptiles.
