Human beings have everything to answer for in their impact on wildlife which has escalated to grave and catastrophic proportions over the last century, only set to worsen.  Countless species are or are threatened with extinction and there is ongoing untold suffering to wild as well as domestic animals.  We share the earth with all creatures and have no right to trash it, exploit it, create suffering and misery for our own greed, convenience, entertainment, laziness, experimentation, ignorance + cruel urges. We at Earth-Share are have compiled the following human profile of reasons, each point of which urgently needs to be addressed to help turn the tide:


population way too big


lost contact with nature


culture of consumerism + economic growth


human greed




forget all life is connected


lack of foresight

fueled by corruption

fueled by corruption


not in my backyard, not my problem


lack of conscience


rob land, destroy homes


humans dominate, ignoring the rights of other species


thoughtlessness: fun to release but death traps


human capacity for cruelty


justify imprisonment


pollute pollute


degrade landscapes


lost spirit of respect and empathy

Stop Wildlife Crime: The Series - Tigers (Video 3) | WWF

WARNING: CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES] The third episode of WWF's Stop Wildlife Crime series highlights the impact on wild tigers. Populations have declined drastically as high demand for tiger parts and products continues to drive the poaching crisis. Follow our documentary series on World Wildlife Fund's YouTube channel by subscribing now and using the hashtag #StopWildlifeCrime while you watch. Two of the six remaining subspecies of tigers are Critically Endangered. Every part of the tiger—from whisker to tail—is traded in illegal wildlife markets. Poaching is the most immediate threat to wild tigers. In relentless demand, their parts are used for traditional medicine, folk remedies, and increasingly as a status symbol among wealthy Asians. And in recent years, live tiger cubs are being targeted to meet a rising demand for exotic pets. Wildlife crime is dead serious. This low-risk, high-profit crime threatens some of the world's best-loved species and the rangers that protect them. WWF needs your help to make a difference. Please view and share to spread awareness. And, don't miss this five-part series featuring wildlife trade facts and interviews with experts in government, security and conservation every Sunday at 7 pm EDT in September 2013.

 We owe so much...

Which poses the question:  'What will it take for us to change our ways, our level of awareness, our ways of behaving and operating on this planet, to live in this world with responsibility, ethics and care from a spirit of sharing, to align our values?' So that it is:

Not money, but simplicity.

Not cruelty but kindness.

Not possession but generosity and doing without.

Not selfishness but a spirit of altruism.

Not self-importance but humility.

Not take-take but giving back.


How can we as part of humanity make this change?
