My bison friends and I are sad and outraged. Where does it end ? The administration is reducing the size of two public monuments in Utah. This is the largest elimination of protected land in American history.

Hello California. Don’t tell NY about us.

On Thursday my heart broke with the decision to lift the ban on elephant trophies. On Friday I found hope again in humanity as public outrage may have swayed the administration to keep the ban- for now. Our voice matters. We will not be the generation that lets the elephant disappear from our planet. We will continue to defend those creatures that can not defend themselves. The fight is far from over. Stay vigilant my friends. Let your voice be heard.

As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can. - John Muir

Is it just me or does anyone else have the same problem with traffic everywhere they go?

Once upon a time, fell asleep in India and woke up in the Swiss Alps.
The desert dunes had turned to mountains. The sand had became snow. And home was one step closer.

This is Moti. A rescue from the streets of Jaipur. Om Mani Padme Hung. For the benefit of all sentient beings, may they be liberated from samsara.
Compassion, the second of the Four Immeasurables in Buddhism, is the wish for all sentient beings to be free from suffering. We are not free until we are all free. Suffering for one is suffering for all kind.

Just before sunset at the camel fair. She had the warmest smile I’ve ever seen. Could melt the polar ice caps faster than our new administration. I’ll never forget it.

Driving through small villages. Encouraged not only by our mission but by the curiosity and wonderment of the children we saw. It’s for them and every child to come. So they can have a planet with elephants and other magical creatures. 📷by @ar8sh Don’t be shy. Link above to donate. #travelstomyelephant #lovenotfear #elbanditos

On this day of my birth, I’ll admit to you that I love presents. But more than that I love the splendor and beauty that is our natural world. We have no right to destroy what we have not created. So now we must be diligent in our repair. If you haven’t donated yet, it would make a delightful present. If you’d also like to send a present, I’m ok with that. Love, Waris

A visit to Vishnu- the God of Protection and the Preserver of Good - useful for when the world is threatened with evil, chaos, and destructive forces. Now seemed like a good time for a visit.
