Another personal LinkedIn connection and another of those folk given the title of a Conservation “Young Gun” back end of last year. This post resonated with me, and I’m sure it will with many others. Why bother? Noting all that wildlife for what purpose? What good does it do in telling others about your passions as a conservationist, a blogger, a naturalist? If you enjoy what you do, then stick with your passions, life will become very boring for you the moment you give up on them. Stand Up for Nature!

Right on man. I love this. I have just created my blog and my first post is soon to come but this sums up my feelings entirely. Make sure and check out my blog when I start posting (: best of luck to you and yours!

All my Best Wishes.
