“This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.” -- Walt Whitman, Song of Myself
Хомяк и слоник 😊 Побывали в зоопарке в Уэно, ребёнок в восторге 😍 да и мы тоже, если честно. Мороженым объелись, нагулялись, как в детстве 😊 А больше традиционно - в историях 📚 #tokyo#uenozoo#love#elephant#myfamily#trip

Shot from behind, her back left leg bone completely shattered, vets in Kenya treated this female elephant soon after she was attacked possibly by poachers. She escaped, and with treatment was expected to recover fully.
But the fact is TOO MANY poaching attempts ARE successful. It is why Africa has lost between a fifth and a third of all her elephants...this is a GLOBAL problem that needs to stop before its too late. Today's presentation of one the world's toughest bans on ivory sales in the British Parliament brings us one more step closer to ensuring that we protect this magnificent species and the landscapes they live in....forever. We thank Michael Gove ( @michael.gove.mp) , the British Environment Secretary, for setting this ball in motion!
There are other nations too that have made significant strides in helping to put a STOP to ivory trade like China and the US. But ivory can still legally be bought and sold in Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Japan, Australia and the EU. They MUST follow suit and implement laws against this trade. Otherwise one of the world's most iconic animals will continue on its path to extinction.
Join us in saying NO to any version of trade in ivory!

Мне кажется, она зарядилась на исполнение желаний. Только их нужно говорить слону шёпотом и в кружевное ушко 😉
