Ancient Native Elders

Native American people lived in harmony with nature. Without any chemicals, military, banking, corporate industry, or centralized government, almost 60 million people prospered in communal tribes. They were totally sustainable and lived in a natural balance with Earth's local ecology. These people lived peacefully across the Americas for many thousands of years, hardly leaving a trace of their presence since it was so beautifully natural. 

Spoke of One Loving Tribe

Greed and blindness are causing ecological breakdown; 

Indifference to this injustice is what continually allows it.

Daniel Swan Street Art in London Trafalg

Due to both wilful ignorance and a media that divides us, many human beings have forgotten the truth;

we are all ultimately one tribe.

 

All loving souls belong to one eternal tribe. It is now time for that one loving tribe to awaken, come together, and act united.

 

By doing this we will change the whole world. 

No matter how hard it seems.

A few years ago I was drawing baby leopards on the streets of London, hoping to inspire passers by to think and care more about nature.

 

Most people know the world is both unjust and destructive, but few realize just how unsustainable it is today or that we have a limited

time to stop corporations from collapsing the world.

Unsustainable business destroys the life of Earth, just so a few can make money. Natural ecosystems are now nearing collapse, and we are losing hundreds of species every single day. Why are we still accepting this?

The main problem is a corporate government driven economic system.

Unless we stand together and change it, they will destroy nature.

To protect nature we need to unite.

Evolving as loving people,

freed by the truth;

We are all one.

All problems in the world come from denial of this truth.

We can still create a better shared reality together,

but time is running out for us to collectively transform.

It's time for action.

Daniel Swan Leopard Drawing Street Art.j

After speaking with thousands of people over several years

creating street art,

I have learned that there are

many other people

who feel the call to help

change this world.

While we can all make a difference as individuals, 

just imagine what becomes possible if we all work together.

Humanity and Nature can thrive again if we evolve consciously. My dream is for a world where animals are safe and secure besides happy, healthy people living in harmony with nature.

If you dream of this too then let's start making it happen.

One Planet, One People, One Tribe

Daniel Swan Leopard Painting Street Traf

For most of human history, human beings have lived tribally.

For thousands upon thousands of years, we worked together in harmony with nature and the people around us. There was no system of control, no money or banks nor corporate ownership or debt. There was no industry of war, no refugee crisis, no famine in Yemen, no homelessness in "rich" nations, or distraction by mass media.

 

People lived freely, in natural beauty, with great health.

 

Many tribes lived this way all across the Earth.  

Only relatively recently did centralised systems of power emerge.

This is not normal for humanity and has never ended well.

Never, in all of human history has it ever worked.

This way always brings us massive pain.

It is time to wake up from the world and act as free people to save nature.

We can come together as a single tribe again,

One great human tribe, beyond all systems and centralisation.

One Tribe regenerating nature to let humanity, animals & ecosystems thrive.

It has been our reality before;

For millenia upon millenia.

 

It will become our way once more.

The question is how, and when.

Save Our Planet Smaller NEw.jpg

Recently you may have seen children standing up together in the streets to protest, millions worldwide, but are you aware of what they're standing for? 

They are trying to save this planet from ecological destruction, where many thousands of lifeforms are killed - by government-approved businesses.

The image below is just one example of what they are protesting to end...

Mining smaller.jpg

Corporations do this, threatening all life on Earth today;

Just to make more money.

While brave children have been trying to save a whole planet, 

Many adults are still working for the systems that destroy it. 

They need us all to act now; How will you respond?

Will you just let this happen without a fight?

The animals & Earth need us to stand up.

Loving souls will not simply watch this.

I and many others will stand up. 

We hope you will too.

Coming Together

Street Art Tribal Portrait by Daniel K S

With Shared Perception

We all have a different way of seeing things. We all have different experiences of life. One thing we all share in common is the planet we each depend upon.

The inner light of life, beyond all conceptual ideas of the mind, lives within us all.

When we take care of nature we take care of our children's future and our own personal health. When we do harm to others we do harm to ourselves.

There is no way to separate mankind from nature without causing people great harm. We not only depend upon nature but are a part of nature.

We are one.

One Creative Living Universe

Though many dimensions may seem to divide us today, we are still one.

However you believe the universe came into being, it came from one source and is all still one. Everything that is, ever was or will be, all of space and all of time, came from one singularity.

 

Though the universe expanded from what physics calls this "singularity", 

it all ultimately remains as one. We, yourself and I, are one.

When you truly realise this, it changes everything.

The Universal Truth of Love

Huge-3D-Chalk-and-Pastel-Art-Mural-Portr

The universal truth of love, oneness and unity is a foundational principle

by which I try to live my life. This leads me to care for all nature and humanity.

 

Many today are discovering the life giving spirit within them, and a growing awareness is calling us all into pure harmony; The spirit of all peace & love.

Protect Mother Nature

Enlightenment Street Art by Daniel Swan

Many species are now highly endangered, like Amur Leopard's for example;

of which there are less than one hundred remaining wild.

We can change this reality, but it requires a global awakening.

We now need to inspire and accelerate positive evolution on Earth,

this is why I create and paint art all over the streets.

 

Quite a few beautiful people notice this,

they care for nature & its beauty.

They want nature protected

but often say "I'm just one person".

One person can change everything,

And if we all join together,

We can make a monumental difference.

We can save nature and so many endangered species,

like the Amur Leopard, just by working together as one.

The Leopard is absolute Beauty.

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

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

Nothing I have seen in nature moves with such grace.

Seeing Beyond.jpg

We only find those that wish to be found

Leopard Study Web.jpg

The leopard is a master of stealth. 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 being like the Leopard  demands great appreciation and respect 

The Moment You See ONE All Time becomes Still

Perfect Balance

Before you ever find a Leopard you will be studied and watched.

A Leopard sees you before you ever notice them.

 They reveal themselves only by choice.

Leopard Tree Small.jpg

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

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

As I knelt to take this photograph I was in awe of the

beauty before me. There is divinity in their form, spirit, and movement.

 

Immediately after I took the shot he turned

and launched himself 30 feet up into a tree.

Such raw, effortless, incredible motion. I was astounded to see how powerful this Leopard was.

 

A true honour to witness such elegance and power.

An Honour to Witness

The Leopard is one of

nature's great forms.

 

It is a blessing to simply be near to one.

When looking at these beings I see creation's perfection and am sure they can feel my complete admiration.

 

Behind their beautiful eyes

is a raw living spirit. 

 

The leopard is truly a miracle.

Almost Completely Gone

Despite being perfectly designed the beautiful Leopard is now endangered.

Some species, like Amur Leopard's, have been almost completely wiped out.

Fight Against Manmade Extinction

There are people fighting valiantly to protect these precious 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 forest teeming with wildlife;

including Elephants, Deer, and Tigers.

These are the fruits of just a few dedicated lives.

Imagine if millions of people decided to walk the same way.

We could save all of Nature, on a planetary scale

Planting Trees Project.jpg

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; both today and for future generations.

"Over half of all animal species are now in decline."

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.

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

This is all caused by corporate enabled actions -

A hidden, for profit, manmade extinction

Beautiful Tree.jpg

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 still very limited and in need of increased public support to succeed.

Great King Web.jpg

Save Nature for Future Generations

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. 

Land of Leopard national Park Amur Leopa

Huge Conservation Success

One of the greatest recent success stories for conservation was the creation of the huge 650,000 acre "Land of the Leopard" National Park in Russia, which covers

60% of all the highly endangered Amur Leopards' natural habitat.

 

Only through massively increased awareness leading to real world action can we truly save endangered speciesWe can all be a part of the effort to protect nature from destructive & unsustainable systems, simply by sharing information like this.

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

- Rumi

Golden Leopard.jpg

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.

70.

 

Only 70 wild Amur Leopards.

How could this happen unnoticed?

Because those who harm earth have great influence over major media.

They do not allow stories like this to be broadcast through the media and continually manipulate people with unconscious content or fear-based narrative: all of this is misdirection.

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 single day. 

Because of massive ignorance, corporate greed and irresponsible

 actions, 67% of all animal species on planet Earth are now in decline.

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 habitat or keystone species can cause

sudden collapse of entire ecosystems

The loss of habitat or keystone species can cause sudden collapse of entire ecosystems. Particularly when these species, like Leopard's, keep human beings off of the land. For nature to recover we must protect keystone species and their habitat.

For nature to recover we must protect keystone species

67% of all animal species on planet Earth are now in decline.

Guardian Small Website.jpg

We still have time to save these beautiful animals, but it is now or never.

We can either stand up for Earth, nature and all life on Earth; or we fail here.

 

It is that simple.


Standing for and protecting Earth

means standing up to and replacing both unsustainable agriculture and industry with sustainable alternatives. 

Choose to Save Nature

We do not have to be a part of unjust systems.

We can choose instead to create and support alternatives to it.

All the natural solutions we need exist, we just lack the action to enact change.

We simply need to choose to save nature, protect Earth and become sustainable.

Enough of the destruction. Let's choose to regenerate and thrive instead.

Let us not wait until tomorrow. We can make this choice now.

Taking the Bridge S.jpg

Either we stand up for our future,

nature and all life on Earth; or we accept mass extinction

The moment captured above is one of my most treasured memories.

To go before these young heroes onto London's Lambeth bridge was one of many peaceful actions that have raised awareness and created tangible change through organised collective civil disobedience.

 

Thanks to simple actions like this, where we stand together for Earth,

today almost everyone has heard of the "climate emergency".

Some are even now aware that we face ecological collapse. 

This is all thanks to visible protests and grass roots activism. 

If it were not for such actions the world would be much less conscious.

I am asking all who care now to join together for regeneration.

We need to use our energy to start healing the Earth,

and to stop supporting the destructive systems.

Ecologically Regenerative Food Forests.

There are many incredible ways we can accelerate nature's healing, but one of the most effective ways is through planting ecologically regenerative food forests. This means the creation of food-producing, natural ecosystems which provide rich organic food and resources for communities as well as habitat for birds, insects, and animals

 

By creating these regenerative food forests and growing our own food, sharing resources as a community, and reducing consumption of products that harm Earth,

we can collectively create a much better world. By working together we can create

resilient and sustainable communities both locally and

globally, that inspire and inform other people

on how to protect our children's futures;

 

Free food, free energy, and free shelter.

All of this is possible and more:

Loving, united people are Free People. 

One Tribe.

One Planet.

One Chance.

The planet is in trouble, but there is still time to change; 

If caring people come together, we can create something amazing.

Growing nutritious food within safe, natural, regenerative forest habitat that extends all over the world is among the greatest ways to preserve life on Earth.

One Tribe S.jpg

Come Out and Be Separate

By coming out of and being separate from broken systems,

sharing talents, skills and resources, we can act now

together responsibly and sustainably to protect mother nature

create a much better world.​​

Solar Panel

Create a Much Better World Together

Forming sustainable, responsible, compassionate communities living in harmony with nature is the simplest and most enjoyable way to protect our children's futures as well as 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 have allowed systems to separate them from nature.

We can regenerate thriving natural ecosystems worldwide

Planting Ecological Food Forests

By creating ecologically balanced natural food forests, we can both regenerate habitat, capture carbon,  prevent soil erosion, protect ecology and produce nutritious food - all supporting and supported by a natural sustainable thriving human community.

Creating these spaces is the most sustainable activity on Earth. 

 

Planting of trees for carbon sequestration is the most effective means of mitigating fossil fuel use. Planting food and creating shelter can also free people from the worst of poverty.

  

Let's plant lots of food forests, to regenerate nature and feed humanityWorldwide.

By Sharing Resources we Live Sustainably and Save Nature

A New Earth

RESTORING THE EARTH

Human beings are designed to cultivate Earth's great garden, not to destroy it. We should be living alongside thriving natural ecosystems, not endangered species. All of this can change if we just change within so that our actions support the Earth and guide others to do the same. To do this we need to choose a life in harmony, not opposition, with the natural ecological regeneration of nature.

Too often illegal logging happens in habitat that was supposed to be protected. Without a local population of human guardians, much illegal logging goes unchallenged.

 

Ecologically sustainable, conscious communities formed within and around natural habitats for the purpose of ecological restoration are perhaps the most sustainable way of protecting endangered species.

Indigenous people epitomize this.

Through regenerative living, we can

restore and extend former habitats to protect and reintroduce endangered animals.

 

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.

A Sustainable Community Project.jpg

Art to Save Earth

The goal of this project is to prepare a space for those who care for each other and nature.

This space will provide workshops and facilities to free others from the world while

sharing regenerative collaborative culture in a place to recover and transform.

If you would like to support turning this project into reality all profits from Art Sales are being used to create the first spaces. Thereafter each site will support others to form and grow organically as one united community, working freely together for humanity and nature.

On top of this, all of my fine art directly funds carbon sequestration through several supported tree planting projects in key animal habitats across the world.

 

Thus art, collaboration and loving, conscious creation can truly change the world.

Protecting Earth is the Way, the truth and the life.
