Many wild animals worldwide are being kept in heartbreaking conditions. Though many people disagree with such treatment many are not doing anything to protect and help these helpless animals. Heinous people across the world are forcing magnificent animals such as lions, bears, dolphins, whales and many more into a life of torture and exploitation all in the name of entertainment.

As human’s we have the power to end such suffering by protecting and conserving wildlife in their natural habitat. There are multiple organisations that shout for the protection of these animals, providing us – today’s society with the knowledge and power of what we can do to help. Everyone of us has a part to play no matter how big or small. Adopt an animal, report exploitation, donate, fundraise or volunteer. Ever little helps. Animals whether in the wild or captivity are all important and deserve our time and compassion to preserve their nature.

So many animals are confined into conditions that threaten the lifespan of many species. Many people use zoo’s as a form of entertainment to view animal’s they would not see elsewhere. Although, there are so many animal welfare issues people fail to see. The space that animals are confined in are often restricted in terms of space and more often than not the enclosures do not contain the right necessities for the animals. This often results in premature deaths of these magnificent animals as well as abnormal behaviour. Though there are many debates that suggest animals born into captivity no nothing more than their enclosure. To an extent, this is true. However, no human can remove an animals natural instincts. Animal’s are forced to perform a crowd and to entertain human’s but who are we to say animal’s are a form of entertainment? Animal’s in circuses and shows are littered with evidence that compromise animal welfare. Do a duty for these animal’s and do not endorse this.

For more information on animal welfare in zoo’s please have a read of the extended conditions animals endure on the Born Free site.

There are so many organisations that dedicate their life to helping captive animals. But they cannot continue their work without the help from YOU. Help now, help the future of wildlife. Protect the wildlife.


Do your little bit to help.

Life in Photographs #4

As 2018 comes to an end, I realised I started my blog with a little series called Life in Photographs. Something I believe will be a great addition to my blog as it allows me to reflect upon some special moments as well as portray my photography (though this post is mainly iPhone captured as I haven’t had the time to use my camera in the last year).

So, my year started with my continuing friendships with those who I had become close with during University. In my second year, I had moved into a student house with four other people and though, second year – for me wasn’t me best I was surrounded by the best people who helped me through whatever I was struggling with and I couldn’t be more thankful.

For my birthday, my mum decided to take me on a small trip to Haarlem, Holland (you can read all about Haarlem over on the Travamigos site) to visit my uncles who live over there. It was a beautiful trip with amazing sights. I also got some selfies with some goats that may or may not be a highlight of my journey. Though it was beautiful and if you’re ever interested, give it a go. However, I would not go for too long as I found myself with little to do on the third day as the town is small and therefore easy to cover everything within two days.

Me and one of my friends and house mates, Tom finally turned 20 on March 31st and April 1st. Weirdly enough, our birthdays are right next to each other. Thus, we celebrated together and with some of our bestest friends.

Now I just had to throw in some pictures of my dogs because they truly was the highlight of my entire 2018. Not even a lie. Look at their faces, what is not to love about them? They came with myself and my family on trips to Wales and Cornwall and got to see some spectacular views.

I hope that you’re 2019 fills you with joy and excitement and hopefully tons of amazing adventures.

Hello everyone!

If you’ve been following me on my social media accounts, you might know that I travelled 6 hours from my home town to sunny Looe in Cornwall with my mum her girlfriend, my sister and our two little doggies. Whilst I was there, I happened to take countless and countless amounts of pictures, in which I though I’d share here.



I hope you enjoyed looking at these images as I enjoyed capturing them. I have posted some images upon my Instagram, which you can view by clicking here.

Life in Photographs #2

Hello everyone!

If you follow me upon my social media accounts, you might know that I recently travelled down to Brighton with my boyfriend for four days. I’m currently back in the sunny North (sarcasm) now, however I thought I’ll share with you my little trip. The images that you will see below, are images that I captured with my Nikon D3200. I won’t lie, I was a little rusty with my camera after not really picking it up for a good two months or so since my A Levels. However, I think I gained some pretty good images.
