Conservation Wednesday: Not your average Cecil the Lion post

The circumstances surrounding Cecil’s hunt, suffering, and subsequent death were purely out of a small man’s need to feel powerful.

Now, this is not my usual post but I feel that it is important to share. My passion has and will always be animals and conserving the planet, and whatever your passion… Continue reading Shamelessly follow your passions
