Lisa Kemmerer
“When pressed, hunters who claim that they just want “to be out in the wilderness,” will admit that the kill is essential—or at least the hope of a kill. As it turns out, there is no correlation between hunting and hiking, climbing, backpacking, kayaking, or any other outdoor activity. Hunters do not purposefully linger in the woods after a kill, but quickly begin the process of preparing to head home with the corpse. For hunters, the kill is the climax—the most important moment. They are not driving into the woods (or sometimes actually walking) for the sake of beauty, but in the hope of a kill.”
Lisa Kemmerer, Speaking Up for Animals: An Anthology of Women's Voices

“True Compassion is showing Kindness towards animals, without expecting anything in return”

“Yet wild things have a far more rational fear of us than is ours of them...”
Angela Carter, The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories

“Hunting animals is not a wildlife or environmental management solution. Why should anyone spend money to protect an animal that a wealthy trophy hunter can then pay to go kill?”
Fuad Alakbarov, Exodus

Helen Macdonald
“The deer in procession resemble charcoal cave paintings rendered manifest. Art's magic working backwards. The chalk behind them, bone. And not the hare runs, too. The hare runs in the opposite direction to the deer. The animals runs, and the landscape seems then to be parting in front of me. Deer one way, hare the other. And now they are quite gone: the hare to the fieldmargin at the top of the hill to my left, the deer into the wood at the top of the hill to my right. There is nothing before me now but wind and chalk and wheat.”
Helen Macdonald, H is for Hawk

Stewart Stafford
“Nature, with its paradoxical twin firmaments of breathtaking beauty and extreme cruelty, never explains itself and cares even less for our admiration and acceptance.”
Stewart Stafford

So Owl says a friendly "Hoo!”
Suzy Davies, Sleepy Animals

“The diversity of life forms, so numerous that we have yet to identify most of them, is the greatest wonder on this planet.”
E. O. Wilson

“Deep, rich orange and speckled with black, every now and again a flick of their wings flashed an underside of green and mother-of-pearl - the silver wash that gives the fritillaries their name. The female flies straight and level, the slow semaphore of her wing-beats and the scent from the tip of her abdomen exuding allure. The male swoops in tight loops under and up and in front of her, stalling so she can pass beneath him through a shower of intoxicating scent-scales shed from his forewings.”
Isabella Tree, Wilding: The Return of Nature to a British Farm

“Right or Wrong Don't know

But those things don't give me Money,
But gives Satisfaction

It consumes my time,
But gives me happiness

Those things can't give me Future,
But I can't live without them

These things Can't give me fame,
But adds value to my life

So Conservation is life”
Kedar dhepe

“When reeling a fish in to not simply feel “the power of wildness intimately but the same time recognize the right of that wildness to continue”.”
Paul Greenberg, Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food

“love about any animal or bird is pure because in that love u dont expect anything from them”
Kedar dhepe

“Many of the interdependent mammals, birds, and corals may be vulnerable, living precariously close to the extinction cliff, but nature is also wild and robust, and swings back if given the smallest crack in the concrete. Witness the dandelions.”
Per Espen Stoknes, What We Think About When We Try Not To Think About Global Warming: Toward a New Psychology of Climate Action

“Re-wilding is a story of nature's amazing capacity to rebound. It tells of the resilience of birch and pine, the dogged persistence of badger and fox, of dandelion and vine, the dark and voiceless worlds of algae and fungi.”
Per Espen Stoknes, What We Think About When We Try Not To Think About Global Warming: Toward a New Psychology of Climate Action

C. Robert Cargill
“Humans, ironically, had a strange fascination with preserving the wildlife of their day. While they were busy changing the very atmosphere and seas, cutting and burning away swaths of forest and jungle to build cities and farms, they somehow felt better about all their damage by making sure species on the cusp of extinction still had a place in the world—even if they were really just a dead clade walking.”
C. Robert Cargill, Sea of Rust

“Rural Americans greatly value animals (wild and domestic) for what they provide, and dislike them for what they take or harm.”
Julia Corbett, Out of the Woods: Seeing Nature in the Everyday

Douglas W. Tallamy
“How many times have you bought a plant that is advertised as being “pest free”? A plant that is “pest free” is inherently unpalatable to insects and often is not susceptible to local diseases. Because such plants do not pass the energy they capture from the sun up the food chain, they do not become functioning members of the ecosystem in which they are planted.”
Douglas Tallamy

“We have allowed alien plants to replace natives all over the country. Our native animals and plants cannot adapt to this gross and completely unnatural manipulation of their environment in time to negate the consequences. Their only hope for a sustainable future is for us to intervene to right the wrongs that we have perpetrated.”
Douglas W. Tallamy, Bringing Nature Home: How Native Plants Sustain Wildlife in Our Gardens
