I Dream of a World
I dream of a world which has clean oceans where micro plastics and rubbish are not found the tiniest of organisms and the largest of mammals.
I dream of a world.. where Whales aren't harpooned then dragged on board a whaling ship. Dead, their bellies cut open some pregnant females spilling out an unborn baby calf. Born to die on the hard, cold, dirty deck of a whaling ship.
I dream of a world.. where baby animals like calves from milking cows aren't taken from their mommas but they are shown the same respect and love as our own children. Being able to live alongside their moms in peace and not put into prisons ready to die in an open pit. Witnessing their kin getting shot and killed in the most dank and pitiful conditions.
I dream of a world.. where there is no such thing as a "Dead Area" of ocean, which is created often from agricultural, chemical run-off.
I dream of a world.. where all Industries take full and complete responsibility to where they source all of their ingredients and products, ensuring that they only buy sustainable, ethical, fairtrade products and in so doing help to protect endangered species like the Borneo Orangutans.
I dream of a world.. where elephants don't get their faces or their trunks cut off and their bodies mutilated for their ivory.
I dream of a world where a baby Rhino doesn't have to curl up to it's dead mother after witnessing her face being cut open.. her horn removed and then see her bleeding to death in pain and most probably much sorrow.
I dream of a world... Where our Leaders take Bold Action to implement Massive Change and Safeguard those who are at the Mercy of the heartless & cruel. Those that work to exploit our world and lack any kind of moral empathy.
I dream of a world.. where everyday people unite against all of the worlds atrocities and criminal acts of violence and evil, ensuring a Safe and Very Bright Future for all Manner of Life on Earth.

"dune systems provide homes for diverse forms of wildlife including plants and insects, some so highly specialised that without these dune habitats, they might well be driven to the point of extinction.
Many of our sand dune systems are covered by both UK and international legislation in order to protect their habitats and the species that depend upon them. Despite these designations there is an increasing recognition that all is not well with our sand dunes.
Many species could soon become extinct unless we undertake important work to reverse some of the results of earlier interventions, undertaken in good faith, that have damaged the habitats and contributed to a decline of the wildlife species that live within them."

We are omnivores, we have evolved to eat practically everything and having given a vegetarian diet a try myself I do eat fish and some kinds of meat sometimes. At the moment I'm largely trying to eat healthy balanced diet by minimizing meat but also chocolates and snax from my diet.
What I'm most concerned about is this emphasis on "meat" as a whole. I believe we should be working to improve animal welfare standards globally yes!. My dad sells meat, he owns a fine food store. He sells a range of locally sourced produce from meat to gin, beers, delicatessen foods and dry goods which supports local business and farmers alike. It's a personal thing and while this whole issue with meat should have an emphasis on eradicating factory farming and reduction of methane caused by beef farming I actually want to know who is talking about our sweets... CHOCOLATE???
CHOCOLATE is one of the worst for containing Palm Oil. What's contained in our treats is just as important an issue to tackle as meat production but when it comes to chocolate, we are also responsible in some way of destroying an entire species of animals in the process.
Who is challenging large industries to buy sustainable palm oil and also create legislation which legally obliges brands to show consumers in a clear concise way that their products contain palm oil.
Palm oil is known by approximately 200 different names, we could be supporting this destruction without even being aware of it. We are in late July nearly into August, 7 months since the Iceland advert went viral highlighting the Orangutan plight. Still I see nothing and no awareness from large stores like Tesco. And also brands themselves being transparent in their use of palm oil. 🐒🌍
