Today this blog is not about Libby and Simba it's a plea to help their animal friends. A UN report, out today, has shown that 31% of the world's wildlife has been destroyed since 1970. 31% totally gone! If we keep this up over 90% will be gone within a century. Now I'm fairly sure we'll have saved the cats - and that's a good thing, but do we want to lose the beautiful Australian animals we all adore? Do we want to lose kolas, wallabies, kangaroos, bandicoots, antechinus etc etc?
It's a sad day folks and I'd like to encourage everyone to do what they can to protect wildlife. From a cat perspective, one of the best things is to make your cats "indoor only" cats. Sadly they are part of the reason we are losing our wildlife and I am thrilled to have indoor cats as they are safe and so is my wildlife.
This little fellow is a pademelon. They are small wallabies and very vulnerable. Would we like to see them all destroyed? As animal lovers let's all do our bit to save animals who have a right to share this planet with us. Thanks for listening.
