“I would like to see us [X-Men] fight them [Avengers], though. I’d like us not to team up. I’d like to see us fight them and, you know, annihilate them, as we surely would.” -James McAvoy

OMGGGGG SOMEONE ACTUALLY MADE GIFS OF THIS PROMPT. McAvoy seriously just needs to get a tumblr already so he can be in the fandom as fully as he clearly desires.

Their intelligence. Elephants understand that ivory is the reason they’re being killed. There are very, very few big bulls with big ivory left in the world, and the two or three still in Tsavo have become nocturnal. I’ve seen a bull with big tusks by the road turn his back, trying to hide the ivory.

What’s the biggest misconception people have about elephants?

"this world is under terrible threat, all of it caused by us. to me, every creature, human or nonhuman, has an equal right to live, and this feeling, this belief that every animal and i are equal, affects me every time i frame an animal in my camera.

"the photos are my elegy to these beautiful creatures, to this wrenchingly beautiful world that is steadily, tragically vanishing before our eyes. …i hope that [they] might have some emotional impact on people - that in a minor way, they come away more aware that there is a sentience to those creatures, that those animals are not so different from us."

"the rangers in the photos are part of the team [of 300] from big life foundation, the non profit organization i started in september 2010 in an effort to help try and halt the alarming and massive escalation of poaching in east africa.

"so far, working within the amboseli ecosystem of kenya and northern tanzania [an area covering 2 million acres], the big life teams have successfully dramatically reduced the level of poaching and other killings of animals in the region. the problem remains rampant elsewhere.”

"ivory has gone from a couple of hundred dollars a pound back in 2004 to as much as $2,000 a pound today. you’ve got an estimated 35,000 elephants a year being wiped out. with about 350,000 to 400,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, the elephants will be gone in the wild within ten years.”

Arturo lives in the blistering sun of Argentina. A naturally Arctic animal spends his days living in 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60 degrees Celsius) of nothing but heat. 

If this upsets you as much as it upsets me, please consider signing the following petitions:

Please allow Arturo to have a better life in the Assiniboine Park Zoo in Canada

Quickly issue a special import permit to Canada for Arturo the Polar bear.

Free Arturo, Argentina’s only polar bear, from living hell!!!

FREE ARTURO: The Polar Bear In Despair

If you know of any more petitions I can add, please let me know and I’ll add them right away. 

Let’s rescue this poor little guy together!
