No wildlife, no humans.. this truth has not sunk in yet for most people. We are well on our way to exterminating our whole planet.

I was amazed to hear a news report that after finding one painted turtle hibernating in the pond by Osoyoos where they were beginning construction on a million dollar marina construction was halted. It was felt that since this turtle was 'blue listed' on both provincial and federal grounds as endangered that it was essential to protect it's hibernation until at least end of March when it awoke. What happens with the construction after the turtle swims away into the lake was not discussed, but I hope that the turtle (and hopefully his many friends) live long and happy lives.

Noted, When all the wildlife is gone humans will be next, We have been destroying this planet for so long, we are working against nature and nature is going to win from all the abuse that we have done to this planet.

No matter the species, the place and the habitat, we have found a way to destroy it and kill it. We're stupid creatures unable to appreciate this beautiful planet and the amaze that life in all its forms is.
