If You Love Nature, get out and March for the Environment April 29th!

Nature. I am a nature girl. It doesn’t matter where…oceans, mountains, forests, parks, I love it. And our planet needs our help if we want our children and grandchildren to see the places we love in the future.

Redwoods are huge                                                             I am so fortunate to have visited all seven continents. I’ve snorkeled and scuba’d many reefs, climbed mountains, and trekked with penguins. My experiences and eyes tell me what we don’t need a scientist to tell us: our waters are rising, our coral is bleaching, our animals are being poached.

In 2009 when we were in Chobe Botswana, there were too many elephants. Now, they have been poached to endangered status.

Lions are disappearing at an alarming rate.

It doesn’t matter if you are conservative or liberal or in between, preserving our wild places and wildlife is a moral issue. Can you imagine drilling for oil in Yosemite? In Antarctica? In the Smoky Mountains? No, no, and no. Millions of people die each year from air and water pollution, and we need regulations and our Environmental Protection Agency (founded by Republican Richard Nixon!). My own husband had a double lung transplant, and part of that came from pollution in our world. There isn’t an alternate world, there are no alternative facts (those are lies), there is not a Planet B, there is only our planet, our lives, our earth. The United States should be the leader of green energies, clean air and water instead of going backward.

So find a march near you! Peoples Climate Movement has a great list! I will see you there!

We must preserve our wild places and animals for the sake of our survival.

  1. Your commitment is so clear and undaunted. Such a support for all things natural.

  2. Thank you for posting this! I also love everything about nature and the environment. We need more post and exposure about this subject. I will be looking for a march near me. Let’s all do something about it! Thanks again!

      Today has been an awful day with this administration…he wants to drill on public lands and do away with the national monuments of the last 3 presidents. The EPA regulations he is trying to do away with are breathtaking….and I mean they will take our breath. We have to do something, so happy to hear you will get out there!

  3. This hits home after suffering a lung collapse during a severe allergy attack. Thank you for sharing your photos with us, they are so beautiful!
    This is our only home we have to be responsible with it.

    • Tam Warner says:

      I’m sorry to hear about your lung collapse! That is awful. If we want to keep healthy, and I know about lungs and pollution after my husband’s double lung transplant, we have to put clean air and water above everything else.

  4. I am a nature girl too. Whenever I’ve been sick, I go out in nature. Whenever I’m well, I go into nature.Your photos are extraordinary, and the facts about our beautiful animals breaks my heart. We must take care of our planet; we are its custodian. Thank you for writing this very important post. Yes, climate march here we come!

  5. Dannielle says:

    All of these places are such good reminders of how amazing nature really is!

  6. Carol Colborn says:

    Of all people, we travelers get the most joy out of nature so we should be the most passionate in protecting our environment!

  7. Thanks for sharing the info for this march and such beautiful pictures, been to a few of them. Nature and cities need to be protected for sure.

  8. I’m hoping the more those of us who are interested in nature and the environment travel, the more we can spread our stories about all the beauty ou in the world and why its so important to protect it. That’s my mission anyway.

  9. Cat says:

    You’re right – our environment is in danger. Thanks for the reminder and there’s no doubt that we should put in efforts, no matter how little it is, to start preserving our planet!

  10. Beautiful pictures, and I couldn’t agree more with your sentiment!
