I really sincerely hate doing two of the things I’m about to do. The first is delve into my personal life. Most of you who follow me on here know that I’m all about blogging in support of animal rights, the occasional Game of Thrones or…

Arturo is kept in a 104º enclosure. We want to save him, other suffering polar bears and their habitats around the world.
“I’ve added a third target of $5000. It’s a huge amount of money so lets see how it goes…
The second goal of $2000 has been hit. Incredible! Thank you so much!
The first goal of $1000 has been hit. Amazing!
This is Arturo, a polar bear living in South America who has been called the ‘world’s saddest animal’.
He sits in a concrete enclosure at Mendoza Zoo in Argentina in temperatures of up to 40C (104F) and is said to have been depressed since his long-term friend Pelusa died two years ago.
It is claimed the 29-year-old’s lonely life is causing him to display abnormal behaviour, including tilting his head and showing his teeth while pacing back and forth and rocking from side to side.
I hope this donation drive will help bring more attention to the Arturo’s cause and help the charity take action for him, other suffering polar bears and their habitats around the world.

"Veganism is not about vegans. Vegans are people with all sorts of good and bad points. But that says nothing about veganism. Vegans are often the messengers of veganism, but don’t confuse the two. Veganism is the understanding that animals value their own lives and bodies, that animals have an interest in continuing their existence and avoiding suffering and that animals have the right to be treated with respect and justice and not to be treated as property. The logic of veganism stands independent of any individual vegan person."- Greg McFarlane (via animalconnectiontx)
