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.
