Steve Irwin: Remembering An Amazing Man.
I remember the first time I saw him on T.V. wearing those Kahki shorts and a bush shirt. I envied his charisma and I coveted his out fit. (Not to mention his energy.) Every time his show would end, the image of his elated face... eyes lit up with obvious passion for every creature he handled would never cease to linger. It was obvious that he was having the time of his life out there... just brushing up against creation like the rest of us have always dreamed of doing, but never found the time, focus, drive or whatever else we lacked that held us back. He went there for us. ...And he took us along. For that, I will always be grateful.

Then he took us on the ultimate adventure... to visit his family at the hospital when Bindi was born. Thank you for sharing that moment with us all Steve & Terri. It lifted us to the highest heights seeing Steve look at both of you with even more wonder in his eyes than he had in the field. My heart and my prayers will be for Terri, Bindi and Bob Irwin as well as all of the amazing people who have worked side-byside with Steve... Pouring their lives into the incredible work, which is forever marked first by Steve's presence and now sadly, by his absence. Steve Irwin was definitely the Happiest Conservationist On Earth and definietely one of my heroes. He will never be forgotten. May the Lord's peace surround you all. And may your hearts smile knowing you have changed people forever.

Feeding Frenzy

last night, it was raining hard and I noticed some flying creatures, as I looked closer I saw that these creatures were little termite queens or drones that look for new territories. These little flying "pests" locally known as "gamu-gamo" triggered a feeding frenzy, I noticed bats flying low to swoop down on the low flying termites.I also noticed some geckos snapping up some juicy termite drones, then there was the spider waiting for its food come to her. As I was looking around, I noticed that the little termites wings were falling off their backs, and then they started walking. Across the termites path was an army of red ants that were foraging for food, as the termite passed by, the ants started to pin down the larger termites and started carrying it into the nest, tired of all the racket I went inside the house and started watching animal planet.

Just sharing.

The bad effects of Deforestation.

Deforestation is done by converting forested areas to non-forest land for use such as pasture, logged area, or urban use. Generally, the destruction of significant areas of forest cover has resulted in a degraded environment with reduced biodiversity. n many countries, massive deforestation is ongoing and is changing the climate and the geography of the land causing climate change or global warming.

Deforestation results from removal of trees without sufficient "reforestation", resulting to the decrease of habitat and biodiversity. The planet has experienced an unprecedented rate of change of destruction of forests worldwide.

There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed.
-Mohandas K. Gandhi
