This week I finally managed to visit (so short!) my friend and heroine Thalita @thathacalvi, veterinarian at the oldest and largest chimpanzee sanctuary in the world. Please check out the documentary project Before They're Gone, which follows today's generation of women fighting for great ape survival 💚. Gerry Ellis
This unassuming building is one of my favorite places on the planet, and I am so grateful to get to enter it’s doors every day. The lessons I’ve learned. The joys and frustrations. My other favorite building is on the other side of the country, and I don’t get to visit nearly as often, but I love them both. #thingofeverything#sanctuary @feral_sc@wolfbrigadegym
#Sowore : I apologize for underestimating the DSS #capacity for the unthinkable - #WoleSoyinka
. #Prof . Wole Soyinka has called out President Buhari over the re-arrest of Omoyele #Sowore and Olawale Bakare at the #Federal High Court, #Abuja by the #Department of #State Services, #DSS . .
Soyinka said it had become imperative and urgent to send message to “President-General Buhari: Rein in your wild dogs of disobedience. And for a start, get a trainer to teach them some #basic court manners!” .
Soyinka, in a statement today #likened the scene leading to the arrest of Sowore and Bakare in the court premises to that of an #African Wild #Dog . According to #Soyinka , he was amazed by the level of disobedience to court’s order by the present #government of #Buhari .
“A few years ago, I watched the video of a pack of the famed #African#wild#dogs hunt, eventually bring down, and proceed to devour a quarry. It was an #impala , #antelope family.
The pack #isolated the most vulnerable looking member of the herd it was #pregnant pursued it, until it fled to a #waterhole which, for such animals, is the nearest thing to a sanctuary. .
“A few minutes ago, almost as it was happening, I watched the #video of a pack of the DSS, bring down, and fight over their unarmed, totally defenceless quarry within the #sanctuary of a court of #law .

The fork tailed isn't just a pleaser but a tool to challenge the mightiest! Come a raptor and this dazzler won't back down.
The black super flexible body isn't any less than a marvel. A marvel that defies most of our beliefs, and to an extent that lies even beyond.
A friend, that of benefit, an enemy and that of contest. This is definitely the king - The King Crow! .
Last of it’s kind. Asiatic lions are amongst the endangered wildlife species that seem to be in danger especially after the corpse of 14 lions including cubs were found between September 11 and 25 from east forest range of Gir. Forest Department formed an active 54 teams to guard the lions and look after that whether they are suffering from any disease or Asiatic Lions are found only in Gir Forests of Gujarat, India. There is no other place in the world where a wild population exists.
On Monday I’m going to be live in the Sanctuary Inner Circle private FB group to share a story about feeling energy in a space.
It’s a story from when I was 31 years old, and a time when I didn’t put two and two together and realise that I *could* feel energy.
And a story which, by noticing the shift in energy in the space I was in, literally saved a woman’s life.
My hope is that by sharing this story with you it may help you connect with whatever hidden spiritual gifts you may have that you haven’t fully owned (or even noticed were there).
I’ve been thinking about this event quite a bit recently and literally only shared it for the first time with a client yesterday. There’s no reason why I haven’t shared it - it’s just how it is! I haven’t even written about it in my book but I think it needs to be added for sure!
If you’d like to join us to hear this story on feeling energy, which in essence will be a mini workshop for Sanctuary Inner Circle members, you need to be a part of the Sanctuary Inner Circle (it’s free).
Sign up here to join us and look for the link for the FB group in the first email you receive >>> http://bit.ly/SanctuaryInnerCircle
If you do join us in the FB group *please* answer the two questions on the way in - no answers = no entry.
I’ll be live Monday morning at approx 8am Brisbane time, so please sign up before then.
Hope to see you there!
Das erste Mal verbringe ich Nikolaus im warmen. Eine angenehme Abwechslung, aber das macht es irgendwie nicht richtig weihnachtlich🤷🏼♀️
Meinen heutigen Nikolaus werde ich niemals vergessen. Das ist eine Geschichte, die ich nicht besser hätte schreiben können. Heute morgen um 5 klingelte also der Wecker. Raus, an die Arbeit zu den 56 Pferden in dem Sanctuary. Joel und seine Familie lieben jedes einzelne Pferd und widmen ihr Leben der Rettung dieser Pferde. Sie leisten unglaubliche Arbeit und sind mit Herzblut dabei🙏🏼
Wir haben heute ausgeholfen bei Fütterung der Pferde und haben eine Überdachung für drei der Pferde gebaut.
Zwischendurch haben wir uns auf die Mustangs geschwungen und sind durch die Prärie von Kalifornien geritten. Diese Pferde🤯😍
Ich wusste, dass ein Ritt mir bestätigen würde, was ich schon vermutete. Ein Mustang reitet sich einfach anders🤷🏼♀️🥰 diese Kraft die man auf ein Mal unter dem Hintern hat🤩🐴😍🤠✨ Dieser Tag war atemberaubend sowie anstrengend. Aber wer will schon, dass diese Tiere im Regen stehen🤗🎅❤️ #farfromperfect#volunteer#nikolaus#mustangs#sanctuary#wildhorses#fromwildtomild#feeding#buildingsheds#supporting#trailride#california#bucketlist#check#dreamcometrue#happy#grateful#roadtrip#90tageusa#vanlife#volunteerwork#daytoremeber

We have a new baby announcement - welcome baby boy Simon! This cutie pie was born on a dairy farm in late September, and then brought to a petting zoo where he eventually developed pneumonia. When some kind observers saw him sick and emaciated, they knew he needed help and negotiated with the petting zoo owners for him to come to Charlie's Acres. Thanks to the generousity of one of our donors and volunteers, Simon was able to receive the vet care he so desparately needed.
