#Endspeciesism, a trend among animal activists

I wouldn’t be surprised if you had no idea that speciesism was a word or if it even existed. Even writing this blog post, the word is underlined red like it’s some sort of spelling mistake. The definition of speciesism is the idea that certain animals are seen to be superior to others. Animals inContinue reading “#Endspeciesism, a trend among animal activists”

Stared Extinction In The Face And Laughed

This is the Hawaiian goose, Branta sandvicensis or more commonly known as the nene and it is beautiful.
