Why have we become so disconnected, How have we become so cold and cruel? I watched mothers and youngsters pushed into a semi circle inside the auction arena trembling and scared, shitting themselves as the auctioneer shouted his numbers and bidding over the loudest distorted PA system imaginable.

I am here to work on a program that creates awareness on animal poaching and the Asian market. The Lion is being poached for its penis, the elephant for the ivory and the Rhino for the horn.

The Arctic national wildlife refuge is 50 years old......
As a kid I always wanted to go to the Arctic national wildlife refuge but growing up in the UK i believed this was highly doubtful at my tender age of 8 years old.
To see a polar bear or a wolf was a dream for me. I would see natural history programs on TV featuring this amazing place and it jettisoned me off to this wilderness.
Many years on it became reality and after visiting this majestic place 5 times, I cannot get enough of it.
Each year though there is a threat to its very existence and that threat is from man and his addiction to oil.
For many years ANWR( as it has become known ) is the subject of oil drilling, certain people want to see this amazing place opened up for oil.
For over 50 years activists and conservationists have fought off these threats, many by the skin of their teeth.
Even if you never visit this pristine wilderness in your lifetime, You need to know that we can at least protect at least one place on this planet, If not for you, your children and their kids.
Extinction is for ever
Please visit www.arcticlive.comfor details on this 50th anniversary.
you can also follow links to facebook and twitter from there.
Get involved and revel in this amazing place.
Happy Birthday Arctic national wildlife refuge....

September 20, 2005 (Washington, DC) - Thousands of Americans from across the country gathered in front of the U.S. Capitol this morning to voice their opposition to plans to drill the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Following a rally on the Capitol's west lawn with a diverse slate of political, religious and Native American leaders, enthusiastic groups of Arctic Refuge Action Day participants swarmed House and Senate office buildings to speak to their congressional representatives about the upcoming vote on Arctic Refuge drilling. Among the crowd were more than 1500 citizens who boarded buses late last night or in the pre-dawn hours to attend from as far away as Michigan and Wisconsin. "Capitol Hill was a sea of blue 'Save the Arctic Refuge' shirts today," said Cindy Shogan of the Alaska Wilderness League. "The sheer numbers of citizens and the level of commitment today were unlike anything we've ever seen in this campaign to protect the refuge. It was an inspirational day."

BIRDS OF ANWR The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge I took it upon myself to visit the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge once I believed that oil exploration would become inevitable under the present administration (George W Bush ) I set out again in June of this year (2005) and headed for a 3 day stint camping among the wildlife. I had previously been to the refuge 3 times before but this time I felt more compelled.
