Protect the Innocent...

By Freeplanet @CUST0D1AN

Free Planet - protect the innocent...Here's a list of extinct or endangered species for you to ponder. Part of the mantra of "Do right by free planet," is to increase diversity and re-wild the planet. We do this by protecting these innocent species from DRASTIC CHANGE DUE TO CORPORATE WAR GREED and perverse expansionist egomania. We need to re-assess our (criminally passive) role in the destruction of our beautiful homeworld in the name of PROFIT.
When we know of a crime and do nothing, we are complicit in that crime. Well, now you know...

You could hang your head in shame, humans, for your lack of positive action but actually DOING SOMETHING will be more productive. It's time to prepare the way for a re-wilded 'free planet' dripping with diversity and alive with life. It's time for a return to paradise.
