The beginning of the video shows the animals carelessly roaming their habitats

But it quickly turns grim as humans arrive

The heartbreaking video shows the ways poachers are harming animals

According to Save The Rhino, 1,215 rhinos were poached in South Africa in 2014. The number has slowly been dropping in recent years with 1,028 rhinos poached in 2017 but, sadly, still remains high.

Oil spills are another problem that greatly impacts animal habitats

Just last year, after an Iranian-owned oil tanker “Sachi” collided with another ship, it released an oil spill roughly in the size of Paris.

Even the largest mammals on earth, the whales, are not spared

Back in 1982, a commercial whaling moratorium was passed ant the number of whales killed by whalers has dropped significantly. Although the industry still remains active with 590 whales killed in Norway and 390 in Japan back in 2016, according to the WDC.

Even though a lot of effort is made to reduce how humans impact wildlife, sadly, sometimes it’s just not enough

The poaching and deforestation numbers still remain high, and if we don’t take action now, soon it might be too late.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
