Ways to Help
- Share this image and information. A simple tweet or post on your social media accounts can spread the word to hundreds and even thousands of others down the line.
- Love nature on its own terms. Finding excitement and satisfaction in seeing animals free in the wild helps combat the desire to hold them in captivity for personal use.
- Be willing to adapt. Deep-rooted cultural practices and values can do unintended harm to species and ecosystems. When your own traditions put nature at risk, keep your eyes and mind open to change.
