Nature Lovers Are the Ultimate Volunteers

 by James Moore

When it comes to volunteering time to help this planet there are a ton of projects to volunteer for, with hundreds of organizations that have made it their goal to save habitats and animals.

 

These are huge names in the conservation industry.  UNESCO is a company that protects and maintains ancient locations so they can be explored, and not fall apart because of human or natural negatives. The World Wildlife Federation’s mission is to completely halt the ruining of natural environments; they want to build a future where both humans and nature can live in harmony and conserve biological diversity. Renewable materials, sustainable energy – natural resources need to be utilized well and not fall into the hands of pollution and waste.

 

Nature lovers have that same mission. Everyone wants to save this planet. They want to be able to take walks, swim, kayak – explore volunteeringevery piece of this world – which means they want to make sure that every piece remains intact. And for those that have been damaged, these nature volunteers do their individual and group part to bring them back to life so that nothing on this earth will be destroyed.

 

It’s not only adults who volunteer to help; there are youth volunteer and internship programs where truly committed young people also do their part to better this world. This is the generation that is working to improve what others before them have ignored, and volunteering is the way they choose to do it.

 

Projects are going on all over the globe; from Madagascar to Paraguay to the South Pacific, there are unique challenges that volunteers are facing in order to protect the environment and all its assets.

Nature lovers can offer insight to the rest of us; they offer that passion for the outdoors that helps all communities, no matter where they’re located, live a better life. From rural and isolated towns to big cities that need extra help in stopping pollution and the problems of suburbia, volunteers are working 24/7 on projects to make this world a better place.

 

Expertise, talent and unique skills are imbedded in everyone. And even if you’re not able to travel, there are so many virtual programs that need time and energy that there’s always a way to volunteer.

 

Be positive and take the love you have for the Great Outdoors one step further!

Laugh Until You Cry

Laugh Until You Cry ~ Amy Lignor I was a kid. I had the best family imaginable, yet I felt out of place. The only thing I could really do well was make up jokes when others weren’t feeling all that good. Even today, as my Mom struggles with retirement and getting older, she’ll cry at times because she feels like a burden (which, by the way, she is not). But even at those times, I can tell a joke, or change my voice in such a way that makes the … [Read More its Good for You...]

A Glass Stadium for the NFL Causes Environmental Issues

A Glass Stadium for the NFL Causes Environmental Issues  ~ Samantha Lewis The NFL is all about hitting, ensnaring the QB and building up the number of sacks on your resume. Football is a contact sport, and most certainly would be boring if Manning, and others, simply wore a flag at their waists and nobody ever went down on the turf. However, there are environmental issues to consider when it comes to the NFL. No, we are not talking about … [Read More its Good for You...]
