Today, at varying times around the globe, we celebrate Earth Hour, a movement in which 7000 cities and towns around the world unite in turning off their power, as a way of showing their support for environmental issues, as a way of uniting in their desire to protect planet earth.

In honour of this special day I thought I would share one of the most special times I have experienced on this amazing planet we call home. If we don’t unite to protect our earth, sights like this will disappear forever. It is a simple act – a cat climbs a tree – but this is not just any cat, this is a pregnant female leopard, climbing the tree where she has previously stashed a kill, in the Serengeti, in Tanzania.

I hope we can all work together to protect our planet so that everyone has the opportunity to see this. I hope one day you get to see this. I hope one day your grandchildren get to see this.
