Focusing On The Conservation of Ecosystems, Habitats & Wildlife

Happy 2010 World Environmental Weekend

2010 Theme: Many Species. One Planet. One Future

This year’s event will celebrate the incredible diversity of life on Earth as part of “The 2010 International Year of Biodiversity.”



According to Wikipedia, World Environment Day (WED) is a day that stimulates awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and public action. It is on 5 June. It was the day that United Nations Conference on the Human Environment began. The United Nations Conference on the Human Environment was from 5-16 June 1972. It was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972.[1] The first World Environment Day was on 1973. World Environment Day is hosted every year by a different city with a different theme and is commemorated with an international exposition in the week of 5 June. World Environment Day is in summer in the Northern Hemisphere and winter in the Southern Hemisphere.



This year’s global host, Rwanda – a country of exceptional biodiversity that has made huge strides on environmental protection – will lead the celebrations with three days of keynote events.

Thousands of activities will also be organized worldwide, with beach clean-ups, concerts, exhibits, film festivals, community events and much more!

What Do You Want For Our Earth?

Changing Habits: Paper or Plastic?

“Changing Habits for Habitats”

How many times have you heard “Paper or Plastic” and which one is better for our habitat and health?  The truth is, they are both Killing us!

What does it take to change are own Habits?

When will we ever learn?  When will we start demanding change?

When will it be too late?  Will we continue to allow our forests to be hacked down…..our water to be polluted and contaminated….our food to be poisoned with pesticides….our natural resources to be striped beyond salvation.

Our climate crisis is more serious than ever now and it’s critical that we participate in making the right choices for the Future of the EARTH.


ASK YOURSELF TODAY………

How can I change my habits before I contribute in destroying my own Habitat?

REMEMBER…..IT’S OUR CHOICE………

Would you believe ONLY 1 percent of plastic bags are recycled worldwide — about 2 percent in the U.S.

Plastic Bags Are Killing Us

According to the Environment Programme, “Floating bags can look all too much like tasty jellyfish to hungry marine critters. According to the Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation, more than a million birds and 100,000 marine mammals and sea turtles die every year from eating or getting entangled in plastic. The conservation group estimates that 50 percent of all marine litter is some form of plastic. There are 46,000 pieces of plastic litter floating in every square mile of ocean.”

Only in the movies could a lion, a zebra, a giraffe, and a hippo wash ashore on Madagascar to start a new life.


But a new computer model suggests there may be a grain of truth in the animated fiction: The ancestors of ring-tailed lemurs, flying foxes, and other mammals that live on the Indian Ocean island got there aboard natural rafts.
