Stop Animal Cruelty Speech

Stop Animal Cruelty

Kia ora people of karoro school, ko Hazel toku ingoua. Today I am going  talk to you about the atrocious problem of animal cruelty and explain animal smuggling. Animal smuggling is when people decide to smuggle native or rare animals to airports or boats to sell them. People think that taking rare animals like the jeweled gecko from their natural habitat just to get money is ok but it is not. If people like yourselves are selling rare animals then what is the hope of their survival?

Smuggling animals can be harmful to the environment because it can do damage to nature. If you take important animals from their habitat then the plants could die. If the plants die and the animals die then mankind dies. For example if all the bees in the world died then all the plants would die and since plants are food all animals would die then all of mankind would die. For every little action there is a massive reaction. People like you can change things around the country starting with one place at a time. Vote for the Meme Team and things will change, or waste it on people that won’t do anything.
As Albert Schweitzer, author of 5 books, once said “ We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty of which we treat animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them it is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our compassion to all living things, humanity will not discover peace.”  Animal smuggling is a form of cruelty, follow in the steps of Albert Schweitzer and stop animal cruelty.

What is the cost of preventing smuggling? The cost of preventing the smuggling of animals cost tens of millions of dollars, but sometimes all that money goes to waste. We have managed to protect white rhinos and we can do it again for whatever animal needs our help. If you are about to smuggle an animal then imagine yourself in a scary small box or a bag not knowing what was happening and then dying slowly and most likely painfully. Then if you have a human soul that alone should be able to stop.
Animal cruelty is one of the worst problems in the world. It needs to be stopped. If we stop animal cruelty then we can save all the animals from unnatural death. If the animals survive we survive.  We can stop other species of animals narrowly missing extinction. If we can double the population of the black rhino in just a few years we can achieve anything within our sights. Eleven species have become extinct in the last ten years because of us that is appalling! You can make a change. vote for the Meme Team and save the animals!.

War vs Whakaaio

War vs Whakaaio

War defeats world peace
Bombs create chaos and death
Peace defeats nguha.

Screenshot 2017-08-14 at 2.42.18 PM.pngPeople seek refuge
Rocky hills provide cover
Nature calls for help.                                      

War gives death and pain
Peace brings love and forgiveness
War and peace brings life.

When nature calls out
We ignore what we have done
We talk of new wars.
