Languishing in the soft, silty mud, the living fossil looked as if it didn’t have a care in the world as it feasted on the fish left stranded in the tidal mangrove pools of the Sungei Buloh wetlands. However, the saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) might have been a little less at ease if it knew nearly 90% of its mangrove habitat in Singapore has been lost over the past century.

Honey The Dolphin Finally Dies After Being Abandoned In An Aquarium Alone For 2 Years Is Now Known As The “World’s Loneliest Dolphin” | True Activist – July 8, 2020

Tribun Travel

(True Activist)  It’s a well-known fact that dolphins are one of the world’s most intelligent animals. From their sociability, familiarity and friendly behavior they portray with humans, dolphins have been one of those animals that have long been loved by humans. Even until now, researchers continuously discover new information about dolphins and their unique skills and sophistication that have only been seen with humans before!

Similar to humans, dolphins are also capable of brutally mistreating each other and yet, despite our shared humanity, we have seen so many inhumane acts that humans have done to dolphins throughout the years. Perfect examples of these inhumane acts are the destruction of their habitats because of pollution and illegal poaching of these poor, intelligent animals. →

Video Documentary: Michael Moore Presents: Planet of the Humans | Full Documentary | Directed by Jeff Gibbs (1:40:01)

Source: Michael Moore

Michael Moore presents Planet of the Humans, a documentary that dares to say what no one else will this Earth Day — that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road — selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America. This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that in the midst of a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids. It’s too little, too late. →
