One of the things I’ve learned over many years in the Wild is that you don’t need to be on the front lines of an African anti-poaching patrol to protect Wildlife or to become a conservationist. Our WildArk team often get asked “what can I do to help?”  and some time ago I would have said “book a ticket to South America and volunteer on a re-planting tree project”. However, this just isn’t practical, affordable or even desirable to everyone. So what then can I do?

It is our daily choices that have just as big or even bigger impact on the planet as that foot patrol in the African veld or the tree planting team in Bolivia. And these choices don’t cost much, take small amounts of time and have an immediate positive impact. Understanding where our clothes, food, household goods, electricity, and water comes from are critical for the protection of the planet. By choosing more sustainable consumption – the easy wins such as no plastic bottles or straws, taking a keep cup for your daily coffee, using your own bags for groceries and searching for sustainable clothing brands are all achievable immediately.

We can’t all donate money or take off for months at a time to save the world, however, we all have the ability to choose. The recent plastic straw movement is a perfect example of how a fad can take on global significance very quickly to produce immediate results in the reduction of one-time, waste products going into our rivers and oceans. You can live in rural India, the Arctic Circle or New York City and say no to a straw.

The way toward catching an ideal photo of any wildlife scene requires learning and persistence. It might take a picture taker up to 10 days to get a consistent shot of an uncommon creature in a characteristic setting. Natural life pictures are hard to catch, and fruitful ones are the aftereffect of luckiness, aptitude, tolerance, and boldness. Natural life picture takers more often than not make great utilization of the foundation by bringing together the focal point of the edge regarding the matter.
