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
We do not have to be a part of this problem.
We can choose instead to find and create solutions.
We can all choose to save nature and become sustainable.
We either stand up for Earth,
nature and all life forms; or we fail them.
By supporting regenerative farming and culture, sharing resources and reducing consumption of items that cause harm to the planet, collectively we can create
real, impactful, positive transformation. We can save the natural world. There is time.
By Sharing Resources we Live Sustainably and Save Nature
We should be living alongside thriving natural habitats
RESTORING THE EARTH
We should be living alongside thriving natural 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.
A sustainable, responsible, compassionate life in harmony with nature is the simplest way toward protecting nature and all life on Earth. For most of human history this is how the great human tribes lived. Only relatively recently did so many separate themselves from nature.
We can choose to become sustainable
To live peacefully with each other and cultivate good lives together we must recognise and respect the life within all animals and nature.
"Life is sacred".
When humanity begins to protect Earth & Nature,
All life here will thrive and humanity will evolve.
There are many people fighting for planet Earth, but at
present too few are aware to really solve this issue globally.
We need a collective awakening.
If people knew the ancient rainforests are being destroyed
just to grow palm oil, everything would change
The ancient rainforests are being destroyed just to plant palm oil in mono culture crops. This is because many companies use palm oil in many of our most widely consumed products. Among the worst are Burger King, Walmart/ASDA,
Cafe' Nero, Domino's Pizza and many others.
Large companies make huge profits from the destruction of rainforest
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.
If people knew the ancient rainforests are being destroyed just to grow palm oil, everything would change. This is why raising awareness is so important.
We're losing so many other species to unsustainable farming
methods and gross corporate negligence
It's not just the Orangutan that suffer from this senseless destruction.
We're losing many other species to unsustainable farming
methods and corporate greed.
Many large companies make huge profits from the destruction of rainforest, woodland, ocean and other animal habitats. These companies are destroying the planet, and they know one day we will stop them doing this,
which is why many are accelerating their pace.
We can make a huge impact on industrial behaviours and actions
"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."
By learning and teaching regenerative culture, becoming conscious about the sources of what we buy we can choose natural, sustainable alternatives and make a huge impact on industrial behaviour and action.
We can still save many endangered species, like the Orangutan.
We can stop this destruction from happening, simply by taking away their funding
There are different ways and reasons for this destruction, but all of it comes down to one thing: money. We can stop this destruction
from happening, just by taking away their funding.
If we lose these last ecosystems, it will be impossible to recover from
All life on Earth needs Natural Ecosystems.
If they suffer we all suffer.
If natural ecology collapses the human world will soon follow
No matter how much money is made for the "rich".
They are the last remaining strongholds for nature's ecological framework
Centres of biodiversity like the Amazon rainforest sustain more different animal species than anywhere else on planet Earth. They are the last chance we have for recovering a vibrant, flourishing, harmonious natural and balanced ecology between nature and mankind.
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 trigger a planetary scale ecological collapse,
which will also lead to economic collapse
We can transform the world to protect what is left of nature
If we stand up to protect these habitats, levying huge fines upon any person or organisation involved in their destruction, while choosing to
use sustainable alternatives ourselves, we can quickly and rapidly
transform the world to protect what is left of nature.
Switching to A Sustainable World
"I am always meeting amazing people doing great projects to allow biodiversity to creep back." - Jane Goodall
"It is only when you care for nature that you protect it"
- Jane Goodall
Funding Good Works
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.
"If you plant trees in a city it has enormous benefits – it cools the temperature, cleans the air, stabilises the soil against flooding and improves psychological
and physical health, to mention only a few."
- Jane Goodall
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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 give them just these I guarantee they will win.
There are no teenagers in the boardrooms;
Just those who forgot they were children themselves once.
If you are in a position to make a difference then please keep the children in mind.
What we today determines the future of many generations. For the sake of their future we all need to act.
May the young people for nature be our guides and true leaders.
May all those who hear this stand up and act with them.
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 dollars. That 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.
How is this system in place?
It's time we change this.
A Planet is Shared, not Owned
The resources of the Earth should not belong to anyone. They should be shared responsibly.
Many humans understand this. We are one tribe. One nation.
There are no borders to this one simple truth.
When we come together in unity,
The greedy world ends.
Share the Earth.
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.
People should not make huge financial gains from destroying the natural world, but they do. Some people use corporations to hide how 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
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.
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.
Good life on this Earth takes much
love, strength and courage.
All who love in this world face injustice and condemnation. We need courage to guide us through hardship and trials.
A Leopard once showed me what real courage is about, 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 it fight them 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.
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 world can and will change.
All human beings have a duty to nature.
We hold in our hands all the children's futures.
If we don't stand up soon they will lose nature forever.
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.
People are Awakening
to Be the Change We Need
the Young Ones, Our Children
are Standing Up to Lead
If We All Stand Together
Like Warriors of Peace
One United Tribe
Of Loving Souls Will See
