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."
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
A great being like a Leopard demands respect and admiration.
"The Moment You See ONE All Time becomes Still"
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.
"I have never seen anything move with such elegance and power."
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.
Immediately after I took the shot he turned
and launched himself 30 foot up into a tree.
I was astounded to see how powerful this Leopard was.
Such raw, effortless, incredible motion. A true honour to witness.
I have never seen anything move with such elegance and power.
As 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.
"A True Honour to Witness"
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 beautiful eyes is a raw living spirit.
The leopard is truly a miracle.
"The Leopard is truly a miracle"
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.
Fight Against Manmade Extinction
Despite all of their perfect natural beauty the Leopard is endangered.
Some species, like Amur Leopard's, are almost completely gone.
There are a few people fighting to protect this species.
This is a fight against manmade extinction.
"Be magnificent as the leopard, fight to win."
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.
"Over half of all animal species are now in decline."
Only 70 Left
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.
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 have a tremendous impact upon the others in a local, or even global, ecology.
Such species are known as "keystone" species.
The loss of keystone species can cause
sudden collapse of entire ecosystems
The loss of keystone species can cause sudden collapse of entire ecosystems. Particularly when these species, like Leopard's, keep human beings off the land. For nature to recover
we must protect keystone species.
For nature to recover we must protect keystone species
Unsustainable Industry Destroys this Planet
"Every year about 18 million hectares of forest –
an area the size of England and Wales –
- World Resources Institute
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
Because of massive ignorance, corporate greed and irresponsible
humans, 67% of all animal species on planet Earth are now in decline.
67% of all animal species on planet Earth are now in decline.
We still have time to save these beautiful animals, but it is now or never.
We either stand up for Earth, nature and all lifeforms; or we fail them.
It is that simple.
Standing for and protecting Earth
means standing up to and replacing unsustainable agriculture
