We have a fabulous Elephant and Wildlife Conservation project who are looking for volunteers to help with their research in Sri Lanka!
Lying off the southern tip of India, it’s clear why the tropical island of Sri Lanka is growing in popularity. Offering visitors sensational options from watching wild elephants, surfing the waves, wandering amongst rolling tea plantations, visiting colourful temples to trekking up to the rock fortress of Sigirya - this is just the start of what it has to offer!
Two level gym at the Marriott Grand in St Louis. Leg day is done! Proper nutrition here has been non existent. They believe a salad is what vegans eat and only salads. Ugh! #veganseatmorethanjustsalads
Hola La desaparición se debió a que vivimos un mes y medio muy intenso en nuestro querido @thai_animal_sanctuary . Muchas responsabilidades, muchas malas, jornadas agotadoras y un desgaste emocional del que todavía no nos recuperamos.
Pero siempre se rescatan cosas hermosas, en este caso toda la gente linda que conocimos, todo lo que aprendimos, todo el amor baboso que recibimos y porque le seguimos poniendo muchos huevos y ovarios a todo. Próximo destino: Camboya.
I never forget a face that's attached to a beautiful heart... Spring always reminds me of new life - something wonderful is about to happen. I want to encourage you to give back to your community... I do not think there is one city on this beautiful Earth, where they couldn't use some help and love... Whether it's donating food, clothes, volunteering or as simple as smiling at a stranger - saying I see you - and you matter - it can and does make a difference. Whether you help one person or a million, to me it's all of equal value. The best part of giving? Too many to name. Compassion and empathy, are beautiful traits, to nurture and express. If you see an opportunity to make a difference - go for it. This world needs us all, it can't change, unless our hearts do - reach out... if I can do nothing else for you via this Instagram - I hope I've at least encouraged you to give back and create. That's my only two purposes with this! Last post of the day - thank you for supporting all these amazing artists and teams, they deserve the credit for all they do! Keep creating and inspiring, and as always God bless you all, spread love!

On Monday, our rescue team set off to Vientiane to rescue 1 Pygmy Slow Loris (Nycticebus pygmaeus) and 2 Chinese Water Dragons (Physignathus cocincinus). These three animals had been bought from different markets by a local Lao man hoping to save them from tragic ends, and stored at his house while he waited to contact our centre. Usually, we do not condone people to purchase wildlife from markets in order to save them as this fuels the illegal wildlife trade by still putting money into the poacher's hands. Rather than buying animals, we suggest people contact the local wildlife authorities so the animals can be properly confiscated. Pygmy Slow Loris are native to South-east Asian rain forests where they live in the canopies. True to their name, all Slow Loris move very slowly and easily fall prey to poachers who can just pick them off of trees. To defend themselves again predators, Slow Loris have sharp teeth and venom glands running along their biceps. When threatened, they will raise their arms, bite their venom glands and then bite the threat. In order to sell Loris as photo props and pets, their sharp canines need to be pulled out or clipped. Many Loris' who come to us with missing canines are less likely to be released due to their lack of defenses. Luckily, Morris the Loris has all his teeth and is in good health. We hope to release him once we can find suitable protected land. Alexandra and Paul are Chinese Water Dragons who came to us in a malnourished state. They will spend a few weeks in our vet hospital for observation before being placed out into a refurbished enclosure. We hope to release them into protected land as soon as they are in a healthy state.
