Yes, I think it's vitally important to protect all creatures and the environments in which they live, for their own sake, regardless of our understanding of them or their alleged financial worth. It is also in our own best interests to do so. We are part of a vastly complicated system, of which we understand relatively little, whilst at the same time we are ENTIRELY dependent on it for our own existence.
So, in recognition of the fact that everything I do has a consequence even though I may not see it, I have resolved to take more responsibility for my own actions on all levels. I have a long way to go, and I'm not attempting to change everything at once, but I'm making a good start and I'm in this for the duration.
My most recent decision, which I will elaborate on in my next post, is to become a vegetarian...
I'm also working on my website to give it more direction and purpose. I'll update Facebook as it comes together.
