I’m not an online video watcher, but when I saw this one, created by Vivek Chauhan in collaboration with the naturalists from Sanctuary Asia, I watched the entire 5 minutes without taking my eyes off the screen even once.

If you aren’t a video watcher either, I could just tell you about the powerful images from around the world, about the statement it makes about consumerism and greed, and about the activists that gave their lives to protect our planet and it’s inhabitants, but I don’t think my words could possibly do it justice.

Just watch the video. You won’t regret it.
