Concluding the Journey

This is the last post for my summer learning Journey. I don't remember when it ends, but I wont be doing it next week since I'm going to Wellington.

What is one thing that you learned from participating in the Summer Learning Journey programme this year? I ended up learning a lot of things, mostly about animals like the orange-fronted parakeet and animals we can adopt on the wwf website!

What is one thing that surprised you? Actually, I was surprised at the comments I got. When I started this, I wasn't really planning on replying to comments, only to finish a post and relax. But overtime, I ended up getting more into it that I planned. Thank you to those who commented!

What is one thing that concerned or upset you? Doing the previous activity kind of made me sad realizing how many species are nearly extinct. Would it be better if humans had been extinct instead? We are part of the reason, aren't we? If we our kind died out during the Ice Age, would there be more animals, fresh air, beautiful plants and no pollution? Probarbly. But it just happened that the timeline we are in right now is the one where that didn't happen. In my mind, I believe there is a alternate universe where humans never survived,  one where dinosaurs still roamed the Earth, and one where the earth fell into pieces. All we can do now is try and help the animals that are becoming extinct, and helping to make the this planet a better place.

What is one thing that you (or your family) can do, moving forward, to help protect our natural environment? We can donate to different charities, 'adpot' an animal, sign a petition.

Adoption Day

 ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ oops ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ sorry ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ im dropping all ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ my uwusᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ ᵘʷᵘ

(Live repensentation of me looking through this )

The moment I read what had to be done for this task, I felt as though this was destiny. Looking at animals and ranking them? I'm in! (I'm not sure what happened, usually i'm not this passionate about animals.)

So, even though the task only said 3, I have listed my top 10!

I chose these 10 based on how they caught my eye, I did also to base it on how endangered they are as well, so it wouldn't just be pretty animals that are near threated. Not that we shouldn't care about those as well, since we should prevent those from getting more endangered well also saving those at that extinct in the wild or critically extint. 

I did not rank these by any other information other than their apparence and endangerment(?).  And by appearance I don't mean how beautiful they are, I mean how they look and what my eyes think of them.

At third, we have the Black footed Ferret.
Red Panda sits at second,

And first, Cotton top Tamarin!

You can probarbly tell right away from my list, that smaller cute animals attract me. They look so innocent, funny and cute! All three of these animals aren't as intimidating as a shark or lion, although I do like those big animals as well, I decided on these 3. 

The Red Panda (10,000) and Black-footed Ferret (370 in the wild, previously thought to be extinct) are both endangered, well Cotton-top tamarin (6,000 in the wild) is critically endangered. The Red Panda and Cotton-top tamarin both seem to like forests up high, well the Black-footed Ferret lives on grassland. All these animals  live in groups of families.

♡.°୭̥ ୨୧ My art and plants! 😎

I was watering my plants ^

Changing Climates

On a rainy day, I would like to relax.
I'd put on a playlist, maybe paint for awhile, read a few books, reorganize a few things, and take a bath. I'd probarbly open the window at some point and look outside, just listening to the rain. I might end up online 'shopping' and wanting everything but forgetting about it a day later. My mum would ask me to vacuum and clean, but it's not exactly something I WANT to do on a rainy day. Though I do enjoy cleaning!

Out of context but: forever rain!! It's a beautiful song and I really loved it ever since it was released. The lyrics are sad but

Taking Flight

Orange-fronted Parakeet
The orange-fronted parakeet, also known as the Kākāriki Karaka, is a pretty little green bird with a lemon yellow crown and orange frontal band above the eyes. They enjoy eating flowers, buds, inverebrates (caterpillars and scale insects) and seeds. These cute birds can be found in beech forests.

Flying Foxes

The superpower I'd like to have is pretty overpowered, and would probarbly make me bored like One Punch Man. It's the ability to change the percentage of anything happening, for example me becoming rich or world peace. If something had no chance of happening, I could change it to 100% or what ever percentage I want to. Maybe it would be fun, but over time, there would be no real adventure to anything because I could just change the possibility of something. I could remove all evil from the world, make everyone happy and friendly, make the planet a clean place, cure cancer. It'd get boring.
