Key words: “Today, we are witnessing the extinction of a species that had survived for millions of years but could not survive mankind.”  Why I fight. ・・・Photo by @amivitale With a heavy heart, I share this news and hope that Sudan's legacy will awaken us to protect this magnificent and fragile planet. Yesterday, Joseph Wachira, 26 comforted Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino moments before he passed away. Sudan lived a long, healthy life at the conservancy after he was brought to Kenya from @safari_park_dvur_kralov in the #czechrepublic in 2009. He died surrounded by people who loved him at @olpejeta after suffering from age-related complications that led to degenerative changes in muscles and bones combined with extensive skin wounds. Sudan has been an inspirational figure for many across the world. Thousands have trooped to Ol Pejeta to see him and he has helped raise awareness for rhino conservation. The two female northern white rhinos left on the planet are his direct descendants. Research into new Assisted Reproductive Techniques for large mammals is underway due to him. The impact that this special animal has had on conservation is simply incredible. And there is still hope in the future that the subspecies might be restored through IVF. In 2009, I had the privilege of following this gentle hulking creature on his journey from the snowy Dour Krylov zoo in the Czech Republic to the warm plains of Kenya, when he was transported with three of his fellow Northern White Rhinos in a last ditch effort to save the subspecies. It was believed that the air, water, and food, not to mention room to roam, might stimulate them to breed—and the offspring would then be used to repopulate Africa. At the time, there were 8 Northern white rhinos alive, all in zoos. Today, we are witnessing the extinction of a species that had survived for millions of years but could not survive mankind. Follow @olpejeta and @amivitale to learn more about how we can protect these magnificent creatures. . . . . . . .#Repost @natgeo

During the Vietnam War the United States dropped 250 – 260 millions of bombs on the country of Laos (every 8 mins – 24 hours a day – for 9 years). About 1/3 did not detonate while all the shrapnel remains. What @article_22 has done is turn those bombs into brackets. Villagers melt the war scrap metal and casts each piece. They are then sent to New York to be finalized and sold. In addition to clearing the bomb littered land and giving economic benefits to the people of Laos, Article 22 also donates a percentage to local organizations that are helping clear the contaminated country. Mine say: “I am Love. I am Light. I am Peace” and “Peace” in many different languages (Peace all Around). Buying back the bombs: what a beautiful thing. #LoveIsTheBombwww.Article22.com

Tips for the David Bowie Is exhibit, currently at the Brooklyn Museum: 1. Go early 2. Embrace that you will be asked to turn your phone to airplane mode and can’t take photos – this keeps you present and gives you the freedom to absorb it all 3. Be prepared to come out a changed person. I’m so damn happy to got to experienced it; I am reminded that I’m in control of my expression at all levels and that it’s my life to live the way I want to. Plus, he’s so sexy at so many levels. Billion levels of yumminess.

I was blessed to celebrate International Women’s Day by witnessing a profound and inspiring discussion with change makers: Lyn Slater (@iconaccidental ), Jasmine Aarons (@madebyvoz ) and Dee Poku (@deepoku ). Hearing their thoughts on feminism and solutions to equality REALLY got me thinking and more inspired than ever. I have a clearer perspective of what needs to be done. Thanks (again!) to @maiyet  for hosting. This space should be officially titled Home Base for Women with Visions. And THANK YOU, Lyn, for our one-on-one discussion. I have some serious contemplating to do and that rocks 🏻
