Downy Woodpecker, 2013 (top) and Cedar Wax Wing, 2011 (bottom) by Portia Munson @portiamunson. Those depictions of dead birds surrounded by flower petals are so romantically tragic. We really need to treat our Mother Earth better. Much better. ✌️

Portia Munson - "Earth Rites" art exhibition, curated by Katherine Meehan for NYU Langone Medical Center Art Gallery. The exhibition is a reminder of our impact on the environment, as well as the lifes of flower blossoms and animals. It's a call to respect and celebrate their time in earth and their fragility. At Tisch Hospital, 550 First Avenue, New York City.
EARTH WEEK: Here are some photos from after-school students at Cary Woods Elementary School celebrating Earth Week with Auburn University students and they even had a tea party with the first and second grade girls to celebrate their gardens on campus!
Earth Week is an entire week in late April that is devoted to finding green solutions to environmental concerns.
Thank you to Cyndi Czerkawski for sharing.
Who likes yoga? I certainly do! Together with meditation is the cure for lots of anxiety and stress ✨👌🏽 yesterday was the last day of earth week! We hope you enjoyed it! Certainly a lot of things could have been improved.. but hopefully the next one will be more of a success!! The earth is our home, and the animals are our brothers and sisters and we should treat them with respect and love 🌎 we are all connected, and the suffering of one has repercussions on the other. The suffering of the planet and the animals has repercussions on us for sure. And if you agree with me never be afraid to speak up and defend your mother and your siblings 💗 it's your birthright to live on an earth that is not polluted and sick. We are so lucky to be able to breathe clean air and drink clean water but in most parts of the world that is not the case. We are truly blessed and we need to recognize that! ✨😀🌿🥑🌲💗✌🏽 Chiara, student guest editor #studenteditor#stockholmsuniversitet#stockholmuniversity#earthweek
During Earth Week, some friends and I decided to clean up trails. Ok - I thought it was just a hike, then they handed me a trash bag (I wasn't paying attention).
I think most people don't know that (more often than not) it's no one's "job" to clean up these parks, but our own.
Earth Week may have been a month ago, but it's on all of us to continue protecting our environment 24/7 365.
This morning on my way to school I found this baby angel laying on the corner of the street. I wished him/her goodnight. She/he must have been hit by a car 😔 A lovely lady called who is in charge to carry her/him away from the street. 🦌 We all feel pity for animals when we see them dead or in need for help. We all feel empathy for them and we don't even think twice about rescuing and taking care of them. My question is why do we consume them and their secretions by enslaving and killing them every single day? Why don't we feel the same pity and compassion we feel for stray dogs or cats or deers for also cows, pigs, chickens and fishes? The way the meat, fish, leather, eggs and milk industries work are just horrendous and if you know nothing or little about it I highly suggest you to get a peek on what happens inside these industries. We often forget we are ourselves animals and part of nature and we detach ourselves to the point of thinking the human specie is the best of all species and often the only one deserving respect. It is time we need to reconsider that. Not only consuming animals is harming us, by being one of the major causes of preventable diseases like heart strokes and diabetes but it is killing the planet. 🌎 Animal agriculture is responsible for 18% of greenhouse gas emissions, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation. Without even mentioning that animal agriculture water consumption ranges from 34-76 trillion gallons of water annually (by not eating a burger you save up around a month worth of showering!!💦🚿) so getting to a point, do something for yourself, the environment and the animals that live on this earth with us, try vegan for this earth week and see what it feels like!! Also share your thoughts and if you have any questions just ask! 😋🥑🌱 Chiara, student guest editor. @clairesmind #earthweek#studenteditor#stockholmuniversity#stockholmsuniversitet#govegan#savetheearth
We are in DeGeer Salen in Geovetenskapens hus watching "Mission Blue", the documentary about the oceanographer, marine biologist Sylvia Earle. She ran a campaign to create a global network of protected marine sanctuaries. @mission_blue follows Sylvia Earle on her personal mission to save the ocean. She has spent over 6 decades exploring the ocean and the creatures who live there. Her personal mission is to reverse the destructive course of our species, protect oceans from overfishing and toxic waste before it's too late. This mission is uniting a global coalition to inspire an upwelling of public awareness, access and support for a worldwide network of marine protected areas. 🐠🐟🦐🦈🐳🐋🦑🦀🐙🌊💦Chiara, student guest editor. #studenteditor#earthweek#stockholmuniversity#stockholmsuniversitet#missionblue

Hello everyone! Here's this week' student editor! I'm an Italian exchange student from the University of Bologna and I am studying Political Science here at SU for this semester! I am also part of Symbios, a student association geared about raising awareness on environmental issues such as climate change and promoting sustainability ✌🏽🌱🌎 We organized Earth Week which is taking place this week on campus! A week full of fun events to educate students and to open space for debate about environmental issues! Issues concerning the environment are very dear to us and we are very passionate about spreading awareness and raising consciousness in our generation, starting from the university! That is why this week's posts are not going to be so much about me but mostly about Earth Week. 🌍🌸 More info to follow!! p.s. wearing my @seashepherd tshirt! Do you guys know them? 🐋 Chiara, student guest editor. #earthweek#studenteditor#stockholmuniversity#stockholmsuniversitet
Майская весна была, майская зима недавно закончилась, это майская осень. Ждём майского лета наконец-то, тут же все наоборот.
После зимовки в Сочи абсолютно перестал бояться дождя. Ну льёт сверху, и что? Зато вокруг так красиво становится - чисто, блестит все и красками переливается. А в лесу ещё и запах особенный благодаря влаге, посланной с небес. И тишина вокруг, никого нет, испугались расстаять видимо :)
