I usually don't like to post about issues that concern me, but right now there's something that really upsets me. Eventhough I rarely talk about it, I'm a huge animal lover. When I was younger I even felt bad about walking outside, affraid I would crush some innocent ant. So when I received an email from the WSPA this afternoon, informing me about the critical situation of animals in Burma I was rather heartbroken. As you might probably know, Burma has been hit by a tropical storm almost two weeks ago and death tolls (amongst both humans and animals) are still rising. While everybody is worrying about getting the emergency supplies to the people of Burma, the animals are in just as much need of help, yet not receiving any either.
But luckily we can help them. One way of doing so is by donating to the WSPA. They're currently not able to enter the country but they have a vetinary team waiting in Thailand that will cross the border as soon as it gets permission. If they are not able to get into Burma at all, the money will be used to help other animals, so it's really a win win situation. You can read more about this matter at:
wspa international or wspa.nl
ps. by bringing this up I'm not trying to make you feel bad if you don't want to donate money, it's completely up to you. I just figured that it might help make people more aware of the situation if I talked about it.
