Today is World Wildlife Day and with all the distractions of war, conflict, and politics, there is still a growing mass of consciousness and action, working towards reconnecting us with our fellow earthly inhabitants.  The hope and beauty of these sentient beings is growing and these creatures can and will survive along side of us.
