Earth Hour is an iniative, started by the WWF that turned it into a global yearly phenomenon taking place all across the planet. The event is meant to encourage all individuals, communities and businesses to turn off all non-essential electric lights for an hour, from 8.30pm to 9.30pm. It is usually held towards the end of the month of March.
Earth Hour has officially become a symbol of commitment towards our beloved planet.

Earth Hour 2018 will be held on 24/3/2018 from 8.30pm to 9.30pm Local Time.

Let’s get ready, prepare our candlelights and pre-charge our portable battery packs, and join the millions who are already fighting climate change!

The World is Flat

Remember how back in the past we gullible humans all once thought the Earth is flat? Thomas L. Friedman’s International Bestseller ‘The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century’.

Well guess what, the controversy is back now! The World is Flat. Keen and interested to join the race for globalization?

Still baffled over there I see..that’s fine, let’s find out more about this archaic conception of the Earth’s model. Here’s 10 ‘proofs’ that show the example of how our planet is flat.

As much as the proposed evidence may show that Earth is flat, on the contrary, if you have the luxury to do so, take a boat out to see and try to spot some cruises or bigger ships, you will notice the lower part of their body is not able to be seen in the horizon due to the curvature of the Earth.
One of the earliest believers of ‘Flat Earth’ was English writer Samuel Rowbotham in 1849, arguing for a flat earth. Now even in modern society, one is able to seek like-minded individuals to discover the Earth’s false flatness together.

There are tons of informative videos and documentaries depicting the Earth’s model.

Watch how Elon Musk trolls the Flat Earth Society!

Are there any other methods that may deem fit for this little controversial theory?

The Tigers are vanishing

After having interviewed a WWF representative recently, it was brought to light, the dwindling population and situation of our beloved cats here in Asia.

The Amur Tiger, also abbreviated as the Siberian Tiger were once often found roaming throughout the far east of Russia, northern China & along the Korean peninsula. Hunting had been the sport for the ruthless poachers who bloodthirstily seeked game. The poor tigers were driven to the brink of extinction…Today, with gratified thanks to Russia, it’s becoming of the first country of the world to grant the subspecies full protection, had been caringly boosting the numbers back up from a mere 40. The population of the ‘Panthera tigris altaica consists of roughly 540 cats, having them often weighing in around 396-660 pounds.

Forests habitats are at risk due to logging, conversion to agriculture, urban expansion, mining, road construction, fires & inadequate law enforcement. The ferocious felines have been restricted to the Sikhote-Alin range in Primoski and Khabarovsk provinces of the Far East. These tigers actually own the largest home range of any tiger subspecies, having to roam far and wide because of the low-prey density in the area. They currently represent the largest unfragmented tiger population in the world.
It goes to show there aren’t really many of these pussycats around anymore.

Did you know that tiger bones and teeth are used for human facial products & medicine?

Tiger skin is often sold off and traded for carpets, rugs & furniture.

Every week, a wildlife ranger gets shot in action thanks to poachers hunting for game.

Monitoring populations. Protecting habitats. Increasing Tiger prey. Advocating for improved legislation. Raising Public awareness.
