Stand up for earth

There's no Planet B

The Apex of Grace

 Leopards are among the most powerful, intelligent and stunning creatures on Earth. They embody natural beauty.

To watch a Leopard move through the forest is an unforgettable gift.

Nothing I have seen in nature moves with such grace.

The Leopard is absolute beauty.

"The Leopard is absolute Beauty."

Leopard Study Web.jpg

A leopard is master of hiding and hunting. We only find those that wish to be found. 

Adorned with grace,

poise, balance and power, the moment you see one all time

becomes still. 

A great being like a Leopard  demands respect and admiration. 

"The Moment You See ONE All Time becomes Still"

Balance

Before your gaze finds a Leopard you will first be studied and watched.

They reveal themselves only if they have determined no threat.

To find so much as their shadow passing by is an honour, 

for if they show even this then they chose not to harm you.

As I knelt to take this photograph I was in awe of the beauty before me.

The Leopard is a perfect living artwork in so many ways;

I see divinity in their form, spirit and movement. 

Leopard Tree Small.jpg

As he stood near to a tree carefully studying a human,

I wondered within at how powerful this Leopard was.

 

Immediately after this he turned and jumped, 

launching himself 30 foot up the tree vertically.

Such raw, effortless, incredible motion.

I have never seen anything move with such elegance and power.


He turned to look back from the height of the tree.

It felt like he was actually reading my thoughts;

Seeing, feeling and connecting spiritually.

 

I am sure he could feel my complete admiration.

The Leopard is one of nature's great forms.

It is a blessing to simply be near to such majesty.

When I look at these beings I see creation's perfection. Behind their eyes is a raw living spirit. 

 

Leopard's are truly a miracle

Yet they are endangered.

Beautiful Leopard of Peace by Daniel.jpg

When humanity begins to protect Earth & Nature, 

All life here will thrive and humanity will evolve.

Greed and blindness are causing ecological breakdown; 

Indifference to this injustice is what continually allows it.

We Are Nature

We each are a part of the natural world, and the natural world is a part of us all.

The average human body is made from over 30 Trillion cells.

Each living cell contains some 100 Trillion atoms, making every cell a

living miracle in itself.

These all come together in balance with a living environment to perform the 

miracle of nature that we call life. 

Not only do Human beings need nature,

We are nature. To harm nature

is to harm ourselves.

Fighting Extinction

"Be magnificent as the leopard, fight to win."

- Rumi

In the past few decades, habitat destruction and poaching has caused Leopard populations to dramatically decrease  - by over 80%.

 

Because of human activity many animals are endangered. 

 

Over half of animal species are now in decline.

Many species on Earth are

now facing extinction.

Golden Leopard.jpg

Just 70

The Amur Leopard is one of the most endangered species on Earth.

 

It is believed that there are just 70 of

these beautiful beings left living wild.

70.

 

Only 70 wild Amur Leopards.

How can this happen unnoticed?

Because the ones who harm earth have great influence over media.

Protecting Keystone Species

Certain species in an ecosystem are more impactful than others upon the local, or even global, ecology. This is because they perform functions in the ecosystem that have a huge wider impact. Such species are known as "keystone" species.

 

The loss of keystone species can cause sudden collapse of entire ecosystems. Particularly when these species keep human beings off the land. We must protect keystone species.

Unsustainable Industry Destroys the Planet

"Every year about 18 million hectares of forest –

an area the size of England and Wales –

is cleared."

- World Resources Institute

Forestry, unsustainable agriculture, Chemical Use and Mining are the most destructive industries of all to the habitat of animals

like the Leopard.

 

Because of unsustainable industry there are now so few safe spaces for animals left that we are completely losing hundreds of species every day. 

We still have time to save these beautiful animals,

but it is now or never.

We either stand now for the Earth and all nature's lifeforms,

or we fail them.

 

It's that simple.


To stand for and protect Earth means putting an end to harmful, unsustainable, industry.

In learning about the source of ingredients in items we can make a real change in our choices and actions. The most obvious of which is in the products we buy.

Many already know that Orangutan live in the rainforests of southeast Asia, but most are unaware that an area of rainforest larger than the united kingdom has already been destroyed in the past few years just to plant palm oil

crops for use in many widely used products.

"Many rainforests in Central and South America have been burnt down to make way for cattle farming, which supplies beef to the rest of the world. It is estimated that for each pound of beef produced, 200 square feet of rainforest are destroyed."

- Rainforest Concern

Shere Khan Small.jpg

It's not just the Orangutan that suffer from this senseless destruction.

We're losing many more species to unsustainable farming methods and corporate greed.

So many companies profit from the destruction of rainforest, woodlands, oceans and other animal habitat. There are different ways and reasons, but all of it is about the same thing:

money. We can stop this whole process, just by taking away the money.

 

If we just stand up to protect these habitats, levying huge fines upon anyone and any organisation involved in their destruction, while choosing to use sustainable alternatives,

we can quickly and rapidly transform the world and protect remaining habitats.

No form of business should be operating within a hundred miles of biodiverse spaces.

They are the last remaining strongholds for nature's ecological framework.

If we lose these last ecosystems, it will be impossible to recover from.

It will also triggerplanetary scale ecological collapse,

which will also lead to economic collapse.

All life on Earth needs Natural Ecosystems.

If they collapse we will all suffer.

No matter how much money is made.

 

Switching to A Sustainable World

Funding Good Works

Many amazing people and their projects have been and still are fighting for the future of this planet. 

From Nemonte Nenquimo to Marlice van Vuuren, the Jane Goodall Institute to Ecosia,

there is so much hope still for us to make a better world.

We just have to stand up and work together.

Ecosia have now planted over 100 million trees, all funded with revenue from people using their search engine! Simple actions like switching the search engine you use can have a profound effect when we join together.

  

One of the most immediate differences you can make is to take your money out of bad banks. 

Here is the bank I suggest switching to if you live or do business in Europe. Triodos was founded in 1980 with a mission to 'help create a society that protects and promotes quality of life and human dignity for all' by means of ethical banking. They are leading the charge in positive investment by a long way.

Aspiration bank in the U.S promises your deposits will never go towards funding fossil fuel projects, firearms, or political campaigns.

We can Be Sustainable & Responsible

Governments and corporations often hide what they do behind opaque legal jargon, false advertisement and a series of shell companies. This causes problems for us, since it hides what is really happening from the people. We have seen far too much of this in recent times. 

 

Despite many figureheads placed before us as "real change", we all know inside that they represent the same system; One of centralised power were people are

governed by default from birth -which is obviously without consent.

Perhaps you believe these people will make good decisions on your behalf, but I don't.

All of my adult life I have seen them making bad choices, even some that are pure evil.

I believe that our children could make much better decisions. Truly.

Children are much better leaders than the blind.

That is why I stand with the children.

Climate Strike Greta Thunberg.gif

If you have always wanted to change the world but did not know when or how, now is the time.

There can be no purer movement than millions of children standing up for the Earth.

There can be no greater purpose than to save a planet, its life & nature.

There is no better time than right now, in this present, to act.

What better future than a free, shared world?

The events of recent times are sign and a trumpet call for those with an ear.

We are being called to come together and act as one unified people.

By giving all our effort we can change this whole world.

If we act collectively, it will change humanity forever.

2021 is a year of revival. It is time we wake up.

Use your power. Know yourself.

Serve truth. Free Earth

We are one love.

Cool It BW s.jpg

During the many actions and protests I have taken part in these incredibly inspiring young people have always astounded me. As we marched through the streets I have also seen thousands of compassionate older people supporting them in spirit.

If the older people act with us it would make such a huge difference.

If we worked together and shared resources this planet would transform.

Guarding the Truth Bw Smaller.jpg

Some may question the goal or effectiveness of peaceful protesting and "creative actions", but it has worked before and the alternative is harsh. If enough people come together, massive peaceful protests will definitely work. This is why people like myself are still trying

amid much resistance, to awaken more people while there is still time.

Arrestin' Peace.jpg

In 2019 there were huge demonstrations across the world to protect planet Earth, the largest of which was an international action across over 60 cities simultaneously.

Though media kept quiet and effectively hid these images from you,

it was impossible to hide everything done completely.

 

We have never seen such an international movement in human history. 

Over 30,000 people gathered in London to stand with our children and demand protection of the planet. Despite thousands of arrests, harsh weather and aggressive use of police force we worked together to endure with love and unity.

The demands made were simple:

 

That Government and media tell the truth about the planet's ecological crisis.

 

That they immediately declare an ecological emergency.

 

That they act now to stop the destruction of animal species.

 

That they reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero within 5 years.

 

That they enact the will of the people through a citizens assembly.

The impact was global, with over a thousand declarations of climate emergency in more than 33 countries. In the same year, the people of Ethiopia planted 350 million trees across 1000 sites in a single day, almost 400,000 acres of endangered animal habitat in Myanmar was declared a protected area, a major project to re-wild the Danube Delta began, Ireland pledged to plant 440 million trees and wild bison were reintroduced to Bulgaria (resulting in the first wild born calf in 800 years).

Continued pressure on government and mass activism creates real change

One Tribe S.jpg

We learned one very important thing last year; That the world can be changed rapidly.

Let's make the next change come from the people.

We can make a better world for all, including the animals and nature.

If we choose to come together as one, for Earth.

Imagine millions of people having peaceful,

creative, beautiful shared gatherings to learn,

share, connect, have fun and take action.

To protect the environment and

give birth to a better world.

 

A free world.

Imagine joining them.

Learning about creative regenerative projects,

Joining others to make real changes happen on Earth,

Sharing good, natural, healthy and sustainable food,

Supporting each other through trials & tribulations,

coming together for Earth, love, truth and nature.

Imagine the joy.

Imagine the good it would do.

Not only for this world, but for yourself.

Imagine the kind people you'd meet.

The brave warriors and gentle hearts,

Who care for the animals, nature and Earth.

When we next come together,

I hope you will join us.

You can really make a difference.

Brothers of War s.jpg

Taking action for Earth is important. It doesn't have to be weeks on the streets in front of riot police or underneath helicopters, but at some level and for some people, it will be. I am with those people. 

The moment I captured above was both inspiring and very hard for me. Thousands of police had begun encircling the activists, intending to trap, dishearten and intimidate them. An action known as "kettling".

As the police quickly surrounded us these brave young people had to decide what to do fast.

They acted brilliantly and guided their peers through the closing walls of police.

Adults, mostly male, with full riot gear, horses and helicopters marched toward these children.

Hundreds of them from every side. Children should never have to see this.

Government directed aggression from grown adults toward our children is abhorrent.

Especially when they are literally out here standing up for the planet.

We, the adults, should be standing with our children.

Who's side are you on BW SMALL.jpg

The young people of today are amazing. Despite such a difficult and traumatic world they stand up for the planet and place themselves on the frontline of a struggle to protect Earth from destructive systems.

Systems that they had no part in creating, and that their parents should all be changing.

They are now changing it for us, powerfully, but need much more help.

The least we can do is stand with them in this.

It is our duty to protect children.

There is no planet B s.jpg

There were many watching the protests that clearly wanted to support us and join in, but didn't. I do not know why, but believe the world had somehow constricted their sense of self and freewill.

I hope and pray that you will be free from fear of the world, and serve what is good.

May truth, hope and love guide you always inside. 

Queen Lucy S.jpg

If you feel a connection with this movement, then please stand up and join in somehow. 

Our children are out here on the streets, literally fighting for this planet. How can we not stand with them?

They need our help, our skills, experience, wisdom and resources.

If we just give them these I guarantee we all win.

Nothing to See Here S.jpg

The corporate controlled political and economic system is designed to concentrate more and more resources & power into the hands of a few organisations and people. This has been especially true over the last year because of the sweeping actions of government worldwide. To illustrate this point, consider the fact that in 2020 just 10 people increased their personal wealth by over $300 Billion dollarsThat is more than the entire federal budget of Russia, Costa Rica, Nigeria and Nepal combined.

We are talking about the resources of 274 MILLION PEOPLE being less than

the annual increase of just 10, during a time when most suffered. 

 

How is this system still in place?

It is time we change this.

pexels-markus-spiske-2990644.jpg
A Planet is Shared, not Owned

The resources of the Earth should not belong to anyone. They should be shared responsibly. 

We are one tribe. One nation. Many people understand this.

There are no borders to this one simple truth.

When we come together in unity,

The greedy world ends.

pexels-ian-turnell-709552.jpg
The Earth is a Gift

Unsustainable industry is by definition, unsustainable. It depends upon constant consumption of Earth's resources. We can only save Earth by stopping this insane way of being. That means replacing unsustainable business with sustainable alternatives. Unsustainable business

threatens all life on Earth.

Deforestation.jpg

People should not make huge financial gains from destroying the natural world, but they doSome people use corporations to hide the ways they make money,

because their income comes from activities

that most people would be against. 

There's no Planet B.

Our Home Needs Protection

When ecosystems become unbalanced they can soon become dramatically unstable, leading to mass die offs and even total ecological collapse. There is nothing more destabilising than the destruction of habitat.

We cannot afford to allow more destruction of ancient forests,

sea life and marine habitats, nor the

use of chemical pesticides and neonicotinoid insecticides.

Love On Top Colour S.jpg

If we don't stop allowing this and protect habitats soon, there will be no place for populations to recover. If we waste this chance,

there will be a most horrific future for the world.

It is time to stand up.

Beautiful Leopard Roaring Defensively.jp

Protect Our Home

It can be hard to see why such fierce beings need our help,

but to protect them from other humans the caring need to act.

How long have we trusted other humans to lead us?

When will we realise that the leader lives within.

Follow the spirit, the love, of your own soul.

Serve the one truth, that only love knows.

All life is sacred.

All love is one.

Courage

Good life on this Earth takes much

love, strength and courage.

All who love truth in this world face injustice and persecution. We need courage to guide us through these trials and tribulations.

A Leopard once showed me what real courage is looks like, by defending itself against a whole pride of Lions.

With the major size difference and the fact it was outnumbered, I was amazed to watch the Leopard fight them all off and survive.

Very few animals have the courage, power and skill to successfully fend off

much larger attackers -

especially a pride of powerful Lions.

The Leopard embodies the spirit of courage.

Patience

When in need of food, 

Leopards prefer hunting from trees.

Waiting above patiently

they pick their moment and move silently. Leopards are careful,

observant and patient beings.

I have seen a Leopard 

study Lions hunting for hours, just observing and waiting for

them to scatter a herd.

Once the Lions had tired and separated the herd I watched the Leopard move

in on a much easier meal.

To know when to act takes

both wisdom and patience.

There is great power to find in both wisdom and patience.

The ways of a Leopard 

continually prove this.

If we work together with patience the whole world can change.

All human beings have a duty to each other, this planet and nature.

We hold in our hands all of our children's futures, all the many coming generations.

Caring human beings are those who care for and protect each other, the animals, the planet and Nature. Humanity as a whole desperately needs more caring beings to awaken.

We need a collective awakening to action, all around the planet.  

If we don't stand up soon it will become too late.

RESTORING THE EARTH

We should be living alongside thriving natural animal habitats. To do this we need to learn to live in harmony, not opposition, with the ecological balance of nature.

 

Ecologically sustainable conscious communities formed within and around natural habitat are the most sustainable way of living inside and around woodland areas.

Through regenerative communities we can

restore and extend former habitats to protect endangered species. Living inside of habitat restoration projects means we can more closely monitor and protect the natural ecosystems upon which nature depends while returning the world to a sustainable,

natural and ancient way of living.
