I have to admit, I am beginning to feel a little like a broken record. Last year at this time, we were concerned about the Amazon rainforest fires. In January, we were hit again with the tragedy unfolding in Australia and the wildfires devastating the country.

Considering my background with Asian animals, it’s little wonder I have something of an obsession with discovering simple ways to protect their homes in the rainforests. But I’m not just concerned for orangutans, hornbills, elephant, and tigers. I worry about sloths, tapirs, toucans, and jaguars in South America as well. I worry about all the animals, as we are making the world increasingly smaller. Read More “100 Ways of EarthFit- Day 5: Healthy Cuppa”
