The Free Spirit has created the “Inaudible Voices” project which is a campaign dedicated to creating awareness for rapid extinction of endangered species around the world. In collaboration with the very talented painter Sandrot, through an artistic approach, our objective is to create a visually unique campaign to bring attention to emblematic animals such as lions, elephants, gorillas, etc… We try to touch a large audience about that major issue, educating the younger generation and attract people to our cause. We also want to support local organizations in several countries in the world, who want to protect animals. More than 27,000 species are threatened with extinction. That is more than 27% of all assessed species (source : IUCN).
Forests, which cover 30%of the planet surface, play a vital role for the survival and the well-being of the 7 billions inhabitants of the planet and biodiversity protection. Forests shelter more than 80% of animal species, plants and insects of the planet (source from the UN). Howerver Up to 28,000 species can go extinct in the next quarter century due to deforestation.
Scientists in the United States and the world have reached an overwhelming consensus that climate change is real and caused primarily by human activity.
The world’s forests, swamps, plains, lakes, and other habitats continue to disappear as they are harvested for human consumption and cleared to make way for agriculture, housing, roads, pipelines and the other hallmarks of industrial development.
Poaching is the illegal hunting, killing, or capturing of wild animals, in violation of local, state, federal or international law. Activities that are considered poaching include killing an animal out of season, without a license, with a prohibited weapon, or in a prohibited manner such as jacklighting.
