Fires are a major issue for our rainforests and our planet. These fires are intensified by many factors, including the climate crisis and deforestation. Loss of habitat through illegal logging and development exacerbates the intensity and duration of these fires, helping to create situations like the one in the Brazilian Amazon today.
Wondering what you can do to help?
1. Keep informed about the situation. Sites like Global Forest Watch Fires (http://fires.globalforestwatch.org/home/) provide valuable information about the fires going on right now.
2. Share your passion for the rainforest with your friends. Educate others about this issue and why it is so important.
3. Try changing your daily habits to be more environmentally friendly. Purchasing environmentally-friendly products and reducing or reusing paper is a great way to start!.
4. If you can, make your voice for the environment heard in your local and national elections.
5. Support organizations like Rainforest Trust. While we can't help stop these particular fires, our work to prevent deforestation helps stop fires like this from happening again. Click the link in the bio to help protect rainforests around the world.
Berjalan dengan Komodo Liar (Walking with wild dragon). Deg2x seru gitu deh.
Kadang hidup memang harus berani mengambil resiko untuk mengalami hal-hal yang luar biasa.
Tengelam dalam runitas kehidupan dapat membuat kita benar2x tengelam tidak mampu melihat kesempatan :) #komododragon#tidakbiasa#wildlife
Day 234: Always Beautiful
Not much else to say about it. Doesn't matter if you're flying over the ocean, a big city, or over mount Fuji - from the window seat on a plane, Earth is always beautiful. 😌 And my best guess is this is somewhere over Colorado. .
If you don’t respect Mother Nature then you don’t respect yourself. Seriously, the trees give you oxygen to breathe, thank them for that. Everyone needs to go outside and spend some time in nature because that’s when you truly begin to appreciate her abundance and what she has to offer which we should be extremely thankful for. Smell a flower, watch the bees collect pollen and nectar for their cute colony, touch the soil with your bare feet and sit their in silence & listen to nature. Please don’t take her for granted..we are making her cry by the careless choices we make
Arrived in Toronto Wednesday ✈️ evening and checked into our super hotel – The Hazelton 🏨
What incredibly friendly and helpful staff – thoroughly love this place and would highly recommend it!
After getting settled into our rooms we took a little stroll for our Thai 🍝 meal at Sabai Sabai which had an entire vegan menu 🌱 as well as a regular menu - Spring rolls, Tom Yum soup, Red Curry – all incredibly tasty and the girls recommended the noodles and both chicken and pork skewers. Gutted I didn’t have space for dessert ☹️ 🍰
Thursday was Niagra Falls Day!! What a peculiar place – so firstly you’ve got the splendour of the magnificent falls which straddle Canada 🇨🇦 and the USA 🇺🇸 . Truly amazing to behold and leave you speechless. We ventured on the Hornblower boat trip which takes you as close to the falls as possible and trust me – it’s all very well and good seeing the falls from dry land but nothing quite compares to experiencing it from the water, well within the splash zone! 💦 We had so much fun I can’t tell you!
Is it just me (my brain is dessert/pudding focused as most of you know but doesn’t the picture of the boat heading into the The Falls look like the Hummingbird Raspberry Cheesecake Brownie?? And then you stroll along the promenade and you come to Niagra town which is like Disney/Vegas/ Every Parent’s Nightmare. Kitsch, tacky and downright out of place. As we were in the midst of it all, we did entertain one visit to the Hall of Mirrors but trust me when I say, this bit you can skip. 🇨🇦🇺🇸🌱💚💦🚤 #sabaisabai#hazeltonhoteltoronto#niagrafallscanada#hornblowercruises#kitsch#nature#familyadventures#wildlife#wildlifephotography#vegantraveller#canada#livelifetothefullest
Thank you Leo! 😍 @withrepost • @leonardodicaprio#Regram#RG@rainforestalliance:
The lungs of the Earth are in flames. 🔥 The Brazilian Amazon—home to 1 million Indigenous people and 3 million species—has been burning for more than two weeks straight. There have been 74,000 fires in the Brazilian Amazon since the beginning of this year—a staggering 84% increase over the same period last year (National Institute for Space Research, Brazil). Scientists and conservationists attribute the accelerating deforestation to President Jair Bolsonaro, who issued an open invitation to loggers and farmers to clear the land after taking office in January.
The largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check.
The Amazon needs more than our prayers. So what can YOU do?
✔ As an emergency response, donate to frontline Amazon groups working to defend the forest.
✔ Consider becoming a regular supporter of the Rainforest Alliance’s community forestry initiatives across the world’s most vulnerable tropical forests, including the Amazon; this approach is by far the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires, but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between the communities and the public and private sectors. ✔ Stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers.
✔ Be a conscious consumer, taking care to support companies committed to responsible supply chains. Eliminate or reduce consumption of beef; cattle ranching is one of the primary drivers of Amazon deforestation.
✔ When election time comes, VOTE for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinking policy.

The first-ever global assessment of forest biodiversity shows forest-dwelling wildlife populations have declined on average by 53% in the last five decades. The greatest of these losses occurred in tropical forests, such as the forests of Borneo, where the highest number of forest species live. The impact of this staggering loss goes beyond wildlife. The health of forest species is intrinsically linked to the health of forests overall--and the health of people and the planet.🌍
