Traveling with kids in tow is truly a balancing act, especially when your tribe only stretches as far as your immediate family. We manage to make it work with the help of friendly strangers along the way in addition to the childcare staff at kid friendly resorts. “Not traveling with kids while they are young for reasons like they won’t remember is as foolish as not reading to them while they are young because they won’t remember.” @kooshykids We couldn’t agree more 💜🌍 My children have learned so much traveling from playing with kids from far away lands, exposure to different languages and appreciation for how others live their lives. There are so many nomadic families making their way across the globe with young kids in tow + sharing their adventures along the way. I’m inspired by so many of them to go further + teach my children to LOVE people and the PLANET we live on. It truly breaks my heart to think about them not being able to share these same experiences with their own kiddos because of our lack of responsibility towards the environment. For the past few years we’ve experienced the “red tide” on trips to places like Mexico and even as recently as Belize. It is believed this is due to global warming. What a tragedy it would be for our oceans to lose their beautiful blue hues + the tropical fish, marine mammals and birds that call them home.

Hey! Hey! We're the Monkeys! ... Actually we're Macaques.
I've always wondered what animals would say if they could talk. Maybe it would be, "Alan, Alan, Alan, Alan, Alan, Alan". Or maybe they would ask us to "Get that damn camera out of my face!"
Perhaps most pertinently, they would likely say, "Please save my home". The natural habitats of so many of Sri Lanka's abundant Flora and Fauna are decreasing due to overpopulation, deforestation, and rapidly increasing human development.
The Macaques who've called Sigiriya their home for centuries, are becoming increasingly displaced. Thankfully, the area surrounding Sigirya is protected, nevertheless, it's increasingly likely that the Macaques will disappear from the Lion Rock in the next 10-20 years.
There are a number of organisations on the island who are doing their best to reduce the human impact. Some such as @greenchoice_lanka work incredibly hard to help educate locals on the benefits of recycling, proper waste disposal, and limiting their dependency on plastics. Others such as @mefsrilanka work tirelessly, to help Elephants live peaceful and happy lives in ever-increasingly smaller spaces.
We should be very wary, of the tremendously negative impact we have on the only planet, that we can call home. The impact won't be felt now. It will be felt by our children. And our children's children. One day they'll look up and ask, "Where did all the Macaques go?"

Eh dek sini gua mau nanya deh.
Ketika mulai jenuh dengan tugas menumpuk yang mendekati deadline dan ingin melepas penat. Biasa nya berisi kalimat persuasif. Namun nyata nya, kebanyakan ketika mendekati hari-H hanya menjadi wacana saja

The future will either be green or not at all. Remember, small actions when done together count a lot to help our Earth. Happy world environment day!

Entendemos que para mudar o mundo, proteger as nossas florestas, os nossos animais e os nossos oceanos, primeiro precisamos mudar o que somos. Tudo aquilo que colocamos a nossa energia se propaga e toca o meio que nos circunda, por isso, na biO2 somos o que fazemos, respiramos e acreditamos. Buscamos diariamente fazer com que nossas interações com o meio ambiente gerem o menor impacto possível, reduzindo a nossa pegada ambiental, através de constantes reajustes no nosso dia a dia com programas de neutralização e redução de danos. Estamos todos juntos nesse mundo, tudo está conectado! #diadomeioambiente#savetheplanet
We understand that to change the world, protect our forests, our animals and our oceans, we must first change who we are. Everything that we put our energy spreads and touches the environment that surrounds us, so in biO2 we are what we do, breathe and believe. We daily seek to make our interactions with the environment generate the smallest possible impact, reducing our environmental footprint, through constant adjustments in our day to day with programs of neutralization and harm reduction. We are all together in this world, everything is connected! #environmentday
