Elephant Populations on the up.

Wildlife surveys from Kenya this year reveal that elephant populations in five key habitats have grown from 13,990 in 2012 to 14,642 in 2017. This promising rise in numbers is attributed to stricter laws, cooperation between border patrols and law enforcement, and an increase in international awareness and collaboration to combat the illegal ivory trade.

Good people dig up sidewalk to rescue pregnant dog

A broken piece of sidewalk was patched up before anyone knew there was a pregnant dog trapped underneath. The dog had crawled under the bricks before the opening was repaired. When concerned citizens realized she was stuck helplessly beneath the concrete, they tried to get help from the local rescue agency but were unsuccessful.

The heroes decided to take matters into their own hands and rescue the dog themselves. After the necessary bricks had been removed, reopening the hole the dog had entered through, the rescuers were still unable to see her. That’s when the man who’d removed the bricks took it upon himself to start digging in search of the distressed dog.




The Starfish Story: one step towards changing the world

Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach every morning before he began his work. Early one morning, he was walking along the shore after a big storm had passed and found the vast beach littered with starfish as far as the eye could see, stretching in both directions. 

Off in the distance, the old man noticed a small boy approaching.  As the boy walked, he paused every so often and as he grew closer, the man could see that he was occasionally bending down to pick up an object and throw it into the sea.  The boy came closer still and the man called out, “Good morning!  May I ask what it is that you are doing?”

The young boy paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean. The tide has washed them up onto the beach and they can’t return to the sea by themselves,” the youth replied. “When the sun gets high, they will die, unless I throw them back into the water.”

The old man replied, “But there must be tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. I’m afraid you won’t really be able to make much of a difference.”

The boy bent down, picked up yet another starfish and threw it as far as he could into the ocean. Then he turned, smiled and said, “It made a difference to that one!”
