Before we get started on all of this, I want to put out there that I do not support any vandalism of any property that is not classified as personally yours (except for your mean ex's shirts, go ahead and burn them). With that being said, conservationists are using a variety of graffiti to save… Continue reading Props Wednesday: Graffiti for conservation?
The death of Cecil the lion, and any endangered animal is a tragedy and an injustice. The circumstances surrounding Cecil’s hunt, suffering, and subsequent death were purely out of a small man’s need to feel powerful. Any human being whose soul is sewn with any kind of decent thread will measure a man’s power by… Continue reading Conservation Wednesday: Not your average Cecil the Lion post
I had the opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon with some of my cousins recently and it was one of the best experiences of my life. We drove up from Phoenix in the morning so we arrived by late afternoon. After driving from our hotel to the actual park, with myself and 5 of my… Continue reading Snapshot Saturday: Thunderstorms and Lumo

We all know that we Americans don't do anything without the theatrics, and thats exactly what happened with the ivory crushing event in Times Square in NYC on June 19, 2015. Because there's no more dramatic way to oppose the ivory trade than to publicly crush one ton of ivory for all the world to… Continue reading Currently on Tuesday: Ivory on the chopping block
When you move to the desert and you're air conditioning stops working in 115 degree temperatures, it makes you miss the snow. There is seriously nothing I wouldn't do to have the sting of 30 degrees on my face right now. So while I was sweating my butt off, I found this picture from a… Continue reading Snapshot Saturday: Am I actually missing the winter?
I want to first apologize for not publishing this week, sometimes you need a few days to recharge and that's ok! But here we go again, my friends! This photo was taken on Thunderbird Mountain in December 2014, and it shows lichen growing on desert rocks. From my research, lichens growing on rocks have a… Continue reading Snapshot Saturday: How are you Lichen the summer so far?
The conservationist we are talking about in this post is 20 years old. HE HAS ONLY BEEN ON THIS PLANET FOR 20 YEARS, and he has come up with a genius contraption to rid the ocean's waters of plastic. I'm pretty sure the most impressive thing I've done in the last month was eat half… Continue reading Currently on Tuesday: The young man who’s going to fix the oceans problems
I love all (most) animals, but there's only a couple that I go coo coo for coco puffs about. One of those animals is the Giant Panda, the obsession has been real since around 2002. The only reason I actually have a year on this was because my family took a vacation to Washington DC… Continue reading Props Wednesday: Costumes for Conservation
I took this picture about a year ago right when Heart of Africa opened at the Columbus Zoo in Columbus, OH. The exhibit was brand new and the lions were still getting used to everything so they were very curious about everything going on on the other side of the glass. If you're ever in… Continue reading Snapshot Saturday: Queens of Africa
