Hanging with Hoolia


Hello and welcome to this little green space in the chaotic interwebs universe!

It is my humble hope to contribute what I can to keep you informed on all things to do with the natural world and how we humans interact with it.

Please keep making weekly rounds to find all sorts of information tidbits, including:

- published articles and videos featuring environmental issues

- images that are great examples of the beauty that is nature

- personal anecdotes from my mildly amusing life (these may more may not be relative with the theme of this blog)

So browse around, forgive my lack of blogging savvy for now and always remember to reduce, re-use and recycle!

Cheers

Having tried crickets recently myself, and finding them not too bad, I too ask myself this question. Shocking to find out how much of our planet we use for agriculture.

A Mass Extinction Possible within Our Lifetime

Pretty concerning stuff. Everyone has the power to help change this and the time to start is now. But how can we convince people to care? 

greenpeace:
