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.
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.
"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 you ever find a Leopard you will be studied and watched.
A Leopard sees you before you ever notice it.
They reveal themselves only by choice.
To find so much as their shadow passing by is an honour,
for if they have shown even this they chose not to cause any harm to 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 one.
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"
Despite all of their perfect natural beauty the Leopard is endangered.
Some species, like Amur Leopard's, are almost completely gone.
Fight Against Manmade Extinction
There are people fighting valiantly to protect these species, like Shatrunjay Pratap Singh, who dedicated his life to protecting Indian Wildlife and even stopped government sanctioned mining from destroying one of the
last thriving Leopard habitats on Earth.
Another amazing human being, Jadav Payeng, started planting trees along the river when he was just 16 years old. By continually planting over 35 years they have now grown into a 1360 acre forrest teeming with wildlife;
including Elephants, Deer and Tigers.
Some beautiful souls do incredible things against great odds for the preservation of Mother Nature, but they are heavily outnumbered by corporate money and its servants. We need so many more to stand up for Earth now and join the fight against destruction. By raising awareness and getting involved ourselves, we can all come together to save life on this planet for future generations.
Save Nature for Future Generations
When those who care for these animals work together as one they can have an enormous impact, such as increasing tiger populations due to conservation efforts in India, or the beginning of the first ever snow leopard conservation project in the country last year. These excellent projects are also very fragile and in need of increased
public support to ensure continued expansion.
All the big cats of India are under threat due to fragmented forests and rapidly disappearing habitat chopped down in the name of unsustainable development.
We need to start protecting not only the remaining natural animal habitat but also working to replant and repopulate it - work which will take global support.
Only through major increased awareness can we truly save endangered species.
We are fighting to protect nature from destructive & unsustainable human economic processes.
This is a fight against corporate enabled manmade extinction.
"Over half of all animal species are now in decline."
One of the greatest recent success stories for conservation was the creation of the major 650,000 acre "Land of the Leopard" National Park in Russia, which covers
60% of all the highly endangered Amur Leopards' natural habitat.
"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.
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 those who harm earth have great influence over mass media.
Protecting Keystone Species
Certain species in an ecosystem have a tremendous impact upon the others in a local, or even global, ecology.
These 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 destruction.
We can choose instead to create and support alternatives to it.
We can simply choose to save nature, protect Earth and become sustainable.
Let us make this choice now.
We either stand up for our future,
nature and all life on Earth; or choose to do nothing.
By supporting regenerative farming and growing our own food, sharing resources and reducing consumption of things that cause harm to planet Earth,
we can collectively create a much better world. We can
create resilient and sustainable communities both
locally and globally, that set examples to others
on how to protect our children's futures;
If caring people come together.
The planet is in trouble, but there is still time to change;
We need to act now.
By coming out of and being separate from broken systems,
by forming communities, sharing talents, skills and resources, we can
work together securely and sustainably to protect nature & create a much better world.
Forming sustainable, responsible, compassionate communities living in harmony with nature is the simplest and most enjoyable way to protect our children's futures and all life on Earth. For most of human history this is how the great human tribes lived. It is only relatively
recently that so many allowed a system to separate them from nature.
Because of inaction and gross negligence much damage has now been done.
This damage will harm us all but even more so the poor.
The future will be difficult for many reasons,
but we can change it for good.
We can regenerate thriving natural ecosystems worldwide
By Sharing Resources we Live Sustainably and Save Nature
RESTORING THE EARTH
We should be living alongside thriving natural ecosystems. Human beings are designed to cultivate Earth's great garden, not to destroy it. To do this we need to choose a life in harmony, not opposition, with the natural ecological restoration of nature.
To often illegal logging destroys habitat that was supposed to be protected. Without a local population of human guardians much illegal destruction goes unchallenged.
Ecologically sustainable, conscious communities formed within and around natural habitats for the purpose of ecological restoration are the most sustainable way of protecting endangered areas.
Through regenerative communities we can
restore and extend former habitats to protect and monitor endangered species. Communal ecological regeneration projects can more closely monitor and protect the natural ecosystems upon which nature depends while providing a pathway for humanity and the world to return to a truly sustainable, natural and ancient way of living.
Working together is the Way, the truth and the life.
To live peacefully with each other and cultivate good lives together we need to recognise and respect the life within both ourselves,
the animals, all nature and future generations.
Life is precious. Life is sacred.
We must protect life.
Life is sacred.
When we begin to collectively protect Nature,
All life here will thrive and humanity will evolve.
There are many people ready to fight for planet Earth,
but many more are needed to tackle this issue globally.
We need a collective awakening, and quickly.
That's what this project is all about.
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 profit from the destruction of rainforests
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, government policy and corporate greed.
"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."
Large companies make huge profits from the destruction of rainforest, woodland, marine and arctic habitats. These companies are destroying the planet knowingly, and they know one day we will stop them doing this,
which is why many are actually accelerating their pace.
Change industrial behaviours through action
If we act now we can still save many endangered species, like the Orangutan.
By learning and teaching regenerative culture, becoming conscious about the sources of what we buy we can choose natural, sustainable alternatives and change industrial behaviours through action.
If we act now we can still save many endangered species
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.
Unsustainable industry is by definition, unsustainable
People should never 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
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. People don't cut down the rainforest for fun; they do it because they are paid.
We can stop most of this destruction
from happening, just by taking away their funding.
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. Let's work together. As One Tribe, One Nation.
There are no borders to the one simple truth; We are one.
When we come together in unity,
The world will transform.
