Animal Extinction - Where did it all go so wrong?
Currently we are experiencing a massive extinction of animal species worldwide, an outcome of urban sprawl, land development, deforestation, agriculture, logging, industry, mining, hunting for furs, trophies and medicinal parts.
In our oceans intensive fish farming brings parasites and diseases to indigenous wild fish, trawling denudes sea life, and marine mammals are hunted for their oil, skins or sale as aquarium attractions.
Pesticides kill off an entire species - and then the animals and birds that feed on them either accumulate the toxins, or else have nothing left to eat, and either way then move steadily towards their own extinction.
On top of all of this global climate disruption is putting another major stressor on to many vulnerable species.
Below is a visual remembrance of just a few of the species that we have shared our planet with - and will not see again, and an audio you can play to accompany this.
In the final section of this page you will find the underlying reason this destruction can take place, and what you can do to become the change we need to see in the world.
Our ability to create so much ongoing devastation rests on a deep misunderstanding about who we really are, a misunderstanding that is based on separation - that we are separate from each other, separate from nature and separate from our sacred source.
To successfully make our way out of the climate, cultural, financial and habitat chaos that we have created, we need to move past our centuries-old beliefs about who we are, and together now step into our wholeness.
As we do this our life-limiting patterns naturally begin to fall away, our underlying values become upgraded and our sphere of consciousness expands to reflect, and express, more and more of our infinite Self.
This finally makes it possible to co-create a world where there is a place of co-existence for all beings, human and animal.
To do this we each individually, and collectively, need to consciously focus deeply into our own internal world, heal our traumas and open ever more into our infinite and unified being-ness...and to then take the wisdom gained out into action in the world.... so that we can be, and see, the change we are wanting on the beautiful planet of ours.
