The organization Oceana is the world's largest marine conservation group. Ted Danson makes the point in his hopeful book that "of all the charitable giving in this country about 1% goes to the ocean, 99% to land-based charities. But when you look at the surface of the earth those numbers are almost reversed. This is why this book is so timely." He urged others to become e-activists so that they could tell their grandchildren that they did something about the endangered oceans.
Watching the impelling documentary, "Earthlings," was for me, a life-changing experience. This amazing film is the hard-core evidence of inter-species warfare against the more gentle creatures of our planet.
I feel grateful towards those who have the courage to devote their lives to giving animals a voice. Sincere thanks to Earthlings and those who created it! Support them by purchasing the high-quality DVD at Earthlings.com. If that doesn't make financial sense for you, at least view a free version here. It will change your life.
Virtual zoos would make the confinement and isolation of animals obsolete. I love this idea! virtual reality zoos. A place where people could be completely immersed into natural environments via technology. Imagine experiencing the rainforest animals of Costa Rica through all five senses. Museums and entertainment venues could provide unique showcases where, through sight, sound, touch and smell, one could actually view animals ineracting with each other in their natural environments. I believe that it would enhance the experience for humans and allow us to understand that animals are not here to fulfill our needs and wants. They exist as fellow earthlings. With climate change and an overall need for the appreciation of animals, this is an idea whose time has come.
