Hi! I'm Nicole! I'm a twenty-year-old junior working as a second year Resident Assistant through the University of Arizona (Go Cats!). This is my blog about the people I meet, the things I do, and the life I live!

Landmarks Go Dark for Earth Hour 2014

For more photos and videos from Earth Hour celebrations around the globe, follow @earthhourofficial on Instagram and browse the #earthhour and #earthhour2014 hashtags.

On Saturday, March 29, people around the world celebrate Earth Hour (@earthhourofficial), a global movement celebrating environmental consciousness. From 8:30PM to 9:30PM in each region’s local time, people across the planet switch off their lights to raise awareness of environmental issues and climate change.

In addition to individual residences, many of the world’s major landmarks go dark for the event, granting locals and visiting Instagrammers alike a rare perspective on these famous buildings. For more photos from the darkened landmarks, explore the location pages below:

This year, Earth Hour launched a crowd-funding campaign that allows people to back projects to help build sustainable communities, protect species and much more. For more information on Earth Hour and their projects, check out earthhour.org.

1. Those tigers look thin.

2. Zoos are fucking stupid.

3. Capturing wild animals and using them for human entertainment is a super shitty thing to do.

4. This is not cool.

This is abuse and horrible.  Zoos are prisons.

Some zoos only take old animals to where they are given an easy life. Their maintenance is funded by people coming into the zoo.

Those tigers are not thin.

"Zoos are fucking stupid" wow such science you sold me

They weren’t captured for this purpose, they probably weren’t captured at all, it’s called rescuing. 

This is cool.

This is not abuse, it’s actually exercise if you think about it.

Zoos are not prisons. Zoos allow us to rescue animals, research them, and protect them from hunters and the dangers that we, as humans, impose on them.

I’m so done with all the shit about zoos on my fucking dash. 

Zoos literally save animals every day so why don’t you do your freaking research.

This comment is perfect^

Animals come to zoos as a result of 

  • being born captive
  • getting injured in the wild and rescued to live a healthy life in captivity
  • being rescued from black market dealers, private collectors, or the like who decide that they can no longer care for the animals or who had been illegally keeping the animals
  • being in a breeding program to increase their numbers because the animal is endangered in the wild

If you knew anything about tigers at all, you’d know that they are endangered in the wild due to poaching and hunting. It is of utmost importance that their numbers increase, or they will go extinct within the next fifty years. I don’t know what zoo this is so I don’t know their reputation, but the tigers look healthy, and this tug-of-war is good for them because some animals get stressed in zoos when they are bored. This isn’t solely to entertain zoo guests, it is to give the tigers something fun to do.

Zoos do not snatch animals from the wild without a good reason. If you want to protest animal captivity, go to SeaWorld and protest the orcas being kept there, they are far too large to belong in such cramped spaces and they are solely kept for entertainment.

Thank you and good day.

also did nobody consider that a tiger is not going to play tug of war with a human unless it, y’know… fuckin feels like doing it? it’s not like one of the keepers is stood by with a whip forcing the tigers to pull the rope…
