If you are a regular reader of mine, or even if you are not. I am a little Lion loving obsessed. I love Lions, I’ve got Lions all over my room, I’ve got Lion t-shirts…Lions everywhere! Although funnily, I am not a big cat person. I got upset with the whole Cecil the Lion situation…However, out of this extremely sad situation a few good things have been taking place.
This week the US House of Representative passed an Act called the Global Anti – Poaching Act. There has been a little upset with this as people have been getting it confused with the Cecil Act. These are two completely different Acts and (I believe) that the Cecil Act isn’t even is for voting until January, next year some time.
Either way thought the Global Anit-Poaching Act is an amazing Act (please read more information here H.R. 2494 The Global Anti Poaching Act). From what I can understand the Act means that while they can’t stop the illegal shooting from happening in another country, they can stop the importation of these poaches. So say that a Hunter/Poacher were to spend $750,000 on a hunt, they wouldn’t be able to bring the kill back into the country.
I personally REALLY (like you have no idea) hope this will start to deter people from, especially, illegally poaching.
(Might be going with a little theme here)
It was a bit of an accident that I happened to stumble upon this site. I put “Think, Act” into the Google search and I found this site. It’s not anything to do in relation with the above quote, however, it is a site and is about using the Internet to your advantage…You might find it interesting to give it a bit of a look, it’s a “digital impact Blog”.
So I am training my first group today! I am really nervous about it, guaranteed it’s training my own class, full of fellow classmates, but it’s still a nerve wrecking process,lol. I am training my class mates how to set-up a Blog today. Which is probably part of my nerves because I am introducing people to something that has become very precious to myself and something that has become apart of my daily life now.
Wish me luck!
The 26th of January is Australia Day (and a National Public Holiday!). Annually celebrated on 26 January, it marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships in Port Jackson, NSW and raising of the Flag of Great Britain. In more recent years Australia Day celebrates and reflects the diverse society and landscape of the nation, and are marked by community and family events, reflections on Australian history, official community awards, and citizenship ceremonies welcoming new immigrants into the Australian community.
