Happy Fifth Birthday ABH

A Re-Cap Of Year 5

Happy Fifth Birthday ABH – My animal awareness blog – A Beating Heart is five years old today. I launched it on February 14, 2013 – a nod to the day of hearts and love and in recognition of the often forgotten fact that every sentient being has “A Beating Heart”. Never question that: We love – They love. We feel – They feel. We grieve – They grieve. We play – They play. We cry – They cry and We suffer – They suffer!  

Humanity has no singular claim to an emotional, spiritual and physical existence.

Make 2018 The Year That You Decide To Become A Better Person

Hunting is seen as the barbaric and cowardly sport that it is and more countries are starting to ban the importation of trophies, ivory, rhino horn, shark fins and illegally obtained animal products. Blood sports are seen as the savage events that they are and those involved are being called out of for their participation in this heinous animal cruelty. Rodeos and circuses are on notice. Dog fighting and puppy mills are in the news. Factory farming is being exposed as a revolting, greedy and cruel enterprise.

Taking The Wild Out Of Wildlife – With the recent uproar from animal activists around the world following Donald Trump’s declaration that he was going to once again allow the importation of big game trophies from Africa into the USA it is only a matter of time before all African wildlife will be in the crosshairs of hunters – I use the word lightly because we know how these cretins hunt – please read Chris Mercer’s recent post.

Elephants Make The World A Better Place

Mohan and Wildlife S.O.S. – Elephants make the world a better place. Sadly most people don’t know this and these gentle, perceptive and self-aware creatures suffer greatly because of human kind.
