- tirinhas de filé mignon?
- desculpe, não como carne...
- sem problemas, temos frango.
- é que não como nenhum tipo de carne.
- vegetariana? Posso mandar fazer um sanduíche de peito de peru.

Outra lojinha para compras de Natal.

A group of Samburu warriors seeing a rhino for the first time in their lives today at @lewa_wildlife and @NRT_KENYA. It's surprising to think that most people on the planet never get the opportunity to see the wildlife that exists literally in their own backyard.

Only their grandfathers saw rhinos and these young men had never even seen a photo of one. Based on stories and their own imagination, they all expected the young rhinos to be as big as elephants, as dangerous as lions and their horns to be flexible, like the trunk of an elephant.

This one experience left them in awe, just like all of us, and passionate protectors. Much needed attention has been focused on the plight of wildlife but very little has been said about the indigenous communities on the frontlines of the poaching wars and the incredible work that is being done by @NRT_KENYA @lewa_wildlife and @NATURE_africa to strengthen them.

These communities hold the key to saving Africa's great animals. The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a globally renowned conservation organization that acts as a catalyst and model for conservation. The Northern Rangelands Trust works to develop resilient community conservancies which transform people’s lives, secure peace and conserve natural resources.

Com uma Jóia guardada em meus dedos —
Deitei-me e fui dormir —
O dia era quente, os ventos sem segredos —
Pensei: “Vai resistir” —

Despertei — e meus dedos honestos censurei
Onde a Jóia? — Foi-se embora —
E uma lembrança Ametista
É tudo que tenho agora —

I held a Jewel in my fingers —
And went to sleep —
The day was warm, and winds were prosy —
I said: “’Twill keep.” —

I woke — and chid my honest fingers,
The Gem was gone; —
And now, an Amethyst remembrance
Is all I own —

Emily Dickinson

Quando você está andando na rua e vê uma fila de formigas carregando flores amarelas que despencam das árvores com o vento, você pode pisar nelas e matá-las. Mas também pode desviar.
