Sea Shepherd is an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Since 1977, it has sought to end the destruction of habitat and the slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species. Sea Shepherd uses direct-action tactics to investigate, document, and take action when necessary to expose and confront illegal activities on the high seas.
Located in Northern Thailand, Elephant Nature Park is a sanctuary and rescue center for distressed elephants — as well as a home for cats, dogs, buffalo, and other rescued species. In addition to providing care for animals in need, the park also participates in a rainforest restoration program, supports local villagers and businesses, and educates visitors about the plight of endangered species.
Rhea the Naked Birdie
Rhea is a three-year-old lovebird with Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease (PBFD), a condition that has caused her feathers to fall out. While her story sounds sad at first, she actually lives a happy and exciting life with her adoptive mom Isabella, who documents their adventures together on social media. Rhea’s story has been covered by news outlets ranging from BuzzFeed to Business Insider, and now people from all over the world follow Rhea and her mom. Many even send adorable, handmade outfits to help Rhea stay warm. (Check out their Instagram feed for lots of cute clothing pics!)
