“Sustainability is something I am hugely passionate about. The thought of the possible extinction of many endangered wildlife species throughout the world is a massive concern and something I feel dedicated to act on. I try to raise as much vital awareness as possible through my many “wildest journeys”...Animals are losing control of their migrationary routes and coming into contact and conflict with humans more and more. Also the illegal elephant ivory and rhino horn trade is an ongoing battle and the more wildlife numbers decrease, the higher the value is placed onto ivory and horns, and thus the more threatening this devastating industry becomes. It’s so important we all start taking this as seriously as possible, otherwise we will only be reading about these animals in the pages of history books.” #madchallenges #thewildestjourney #wildlifecrime #sustainability
