#51: You’re given a plot of land and have the financial resources to do what you please. What’s the plan?
Well, it of course all depends on where this plot of land is and how big it is! That said, I’d love to build an animal sanctuary/rehabilitation centre for endangered animals (inspired by the incredible primate sanctuary that is Monkey World). A pretty obvious answer when it comes from someone who works for a National Geographic product, right! But truthfully, something needs to be done about our endangered animals that continue to be poached and evicted from their natural habitats. It’s a shame but I think people don’t realise how serious the situation is – once they’re gone, that’s it!
There’s tonnes of ways you can help save the endangered animals:
– EDGE: Evolutionary Distinct & Globally Endangered!
– Care 2 petition: signing your names on these is easy and free to do!
– Born Free: adopt an animal today for just £2.50 a month (that’s one less coffee a week – easy!)
