wanderlustories Instagram, meet Atka. Atka is a wolf ambassador at the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, NY. I met him in January and instantly fell in love--I mean look at him . //
Every 10 years all states update their State Wildlife Action Plans for species of greatest conservation need. These updates ensure each state will receive critical federal funding to support species recovery.
IF YOU'RE A RESIDENT OF NY, please tell the NY Dept. of Environmental Conservation that our state’s Wildlife Action Plan should include wolves as it did in its 2005 plan. Our state has viable habitat for the natural re-establishment of these creatures and they are critical to the restoration of NY’s ecological integrity.

Today is the last day NYDEC is accepting comments. GO TO THE LINK IN MY PROFILE to send a (pre-written) email today.

wanderlustories Berries, and cherries, and peaches, oh my!
A day outside of the city, away from the noise, is always good for the soul. Yesterday, @ehamm324 and I drove to Warwick, NY to pick some fruit, taste some wine and eat some insanely creamy ice cream. We'll come back in a few weeks to watch a movie at the Warwick Drive-In, one of the last remaining operational drive-in movie theaters on the East Coast.

wanderlustories I'm heartbroken and completely amazed by the resilience shown by the people of Charleston and the Mother Emanuel AME congregation and victims' families' ability to forgive in the most horrific circumstances.
//////////////
"How can it be?" I couldn't understand the singing. I couldn't comprehend the forgiveness. I watched the people of the Mother Emanuel AME church in Charleston do both this Sunday. Forgiveness is not something that comes easily to me; someone caused inexplicable pain on Wednesday night and my immediate response was anger. But for many members of this church, their response was mercy. Their faith is so strong. Their belief in God's mercy is so powerful and you can hear it in their voices when they join together in song with the hundreds of people who gather around the church to pay their respects.
Last night, I joined 10,000 other people to march in unison across the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge for an event we called the Unity Chain. We set out at sunset and walked en masse to show the world that no ideology grounded in hatred can ever stop one formed by love, peace and acceptance. I learned that there is too much love in this city for one man to take it away. There are so many problems in this country and so much more to fix and I came to Charleston with little hope. I left this morning with a sense of pride and motivation I haven't felt in a very long time. #unitychaincharleston #charleston

wanderlustories I've attended over 70 concerts in my life; I've never been to an arena concert in which a single performer took the stage without a band. Ed Sheeran (@teddysphotos) did that last night and it blew my mind. 2mon

wanderlustories I got a chance to attend a screening of a new documentary called Plot for Peace about the story of how the Brazzaville Protocol came to be signed in 1988. This accord was instrumental in the end of Apartheid in South Africa, my motherland. The screening was held at the United Nations and as I walked into the building, I took a moment to appreciate this famous sculpture, Non-Violence, by Swedish sculptor Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd, who created 16 copies after John Lennon's murder and had them placed all around the world. The sculpture brought to mind a speech once given by Eisenhower: //
"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.
This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter with a half-million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.
This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."
