November 25th World Safari Day
The jungles are diminishing all over the world as we build new homes, shopping malls and use the products found there quicker than they can be reproduced. The African Bush Camps company has decided to do something about that by creating today for people to become aware of the preservation and rejuvenation required to keep nature from being destroyed. How about going on a safari using a camera to shoot animals instead of a rifle or bow!?! It is more daring and takes an equal amount of skill or perhaps, even more.
How to celebrate – Go on a camera safari. Give to organizations trying to save the wilderness. Tell me one good reason you need to kill an elephant.
December 14th International Monkey Day
Man tends to put every animal on earth beneath himself. The monkey comes closest but we still treat them as though we are better than them. We hunt them, abuse them, and use them for our own amusement. There is something wrong with that. Today we celebrate the lifes of monkeys, apes, tarsiers, and lemurs. We should celebrate all wildlife and let it live as it chooses, not as what entertains us. Today was originally created as a joke by Casey Sorrow who put it on a friend’s calendar. Who knew it would go international?
How to celebrate – Go on safari and see the monkey in nature (doesn’t have to be Africa by the way). See how many different breeds of monkey you can name. Learn about Koko and her kitten.
