It's not only humans that face barriers in this world, it's also becoming an increasingly difficult place for the animal Kingdom to thrive. Largely in part due to human nature, our ever-expanding settlements, the poisons we put into the earth, whether that's through pollution, pesticides, or our lifestyles, the effects it’s having on the birds and beasts of the world are momentous. I wonder if we could all do a little more to remove those barriers and learn to live a little more harmoniously alongside our fellow earth dwellers.
