Say NO to poaching!

Poaching is a growing problem that occurs almost everywhere year-round alongside Illegal logging and deforestation, together we can help stop it.

How? For ordinary citizens like us we can stop buying products like elephant tusks, animal skins and other stuff like these. We can stop eating stuff like shark's fin soup and other exotic delicacies that come from endangered animal species and animals that are not farm bred.

"Hunting is not a sport. In a sport, both sides should know they're in the game."-Paul Rodriguez

Please stop poaching and habitat destruction.
"When the buying stops, the killing can too."

Global climate change

Global Warming, what is it? As we all know, global warming is a term used to describe a gradual increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and its oceans, a change that is believed to be permanently changing the Earth’s climate forever.

What leads to Global warming? The increasing volumes of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases released by the burning of fossil fuels, land clearing, irresponsible waste disposal, and other human activities, are believed to be the primary sources of the global warming.

What are the effects of Global warming? Changes resulting from global warming may include rising sea levels due to the melting of the polar ice caps, as well as an increase in occurrence and severity of storms and other severe weather events.

Global warming may result to the extinction of many plant and animal species worldwide and maybe even worse it may also lead to the end of the world so please, think about it.

Zebra finches

Zebra finches are hardy and very prolific birds. The cocks usually start courting immediately after introducing him to a hen. Zebra finches are also has a perky attitude and loves attention.


The first thing to do is to choose a pair and put them in a cage that has a nest..then put some coconut fiber or any bird friendly nesting material, then the male sings while fluffing his feathers.
the female will then raise her rump and then wag her tail feathers then they copulate.
The hen will start incubating the eggs when the third egg is laid, then the eggs will hatch in around 12 to 14 days of incubation, the chicks will then start exploring at about 21 days of age and will wean from their parents at about 6 to 8 weeks of age. The chicks will start moulting at about 8 weeks of age and complete the moult in 3 to 4 months.
