👍 Support Our Work
We’re not asking for money. Earthwise Aware Inc is young still, and we don’t need any at this time. It is complete volunteer work on our part, and our funding is seeding money therefore we are savvy and working hard at operating at minimal cost. If you don’t like the look of a button on our page, a menu highlight – well… chances are that we don’t either. But the beauty of our work is that it did not yet cost us much money to setup this site except countless hours with no salary. So enjoy it as much as we do just for this reason. Later when we get closer to our vision and need server space, and such then yes we’ll ask for that kind of help. We are sure then that you’ll be happy to help us, because you know that we don’t ask without a good reason… That’s gold!
So then how can you support our work at this moment ?
Learn, Share and Act & Speak up
Most of the harm that wildlife suffers at the hand of humanity is indirect and unintentional: it is a by-product of human negligence, ignorance or apathy” – Hunter, M.
Most importantly, the best way to support us is to keep an ear open, to get the knowledge about how to be ethical and responsible. Hear the issues, learn about them from reliable sources, ask experts or ask us if you’re not sure and then talk about it. Talk, discuss, debate about issues, wildlife ethics, environmental behavior with your kids, your parents, your siblings, at work. In short talk about it whenever and where ever you can… That is the first most important action and everyone can do it. Then remember to ‘act your words’: We all can be citizen conservationists.
Volunteer or Donate
Speaking out is already acting/volunteering for the benefit of wildlife conservation. But you can take a step further and volunteer locally, or volunteer abroad for short or short term periods. You can donate your free time in a way… You would be surprise how much you can do and if well guided how much you can really contribute to helping.
If you wish to volunteer, join a citizen project, or if you wish to donate for a cause, follow us on our social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, LinkedIn, Google+) and check the organizations and projects we discuss about… You can also contact us and discuss directly with us about it.
We remind you that our mission is not to recommend an organization specifically –but rather to coach our followers so that they identify ethical, choose and promote responsible venues. However on occasions we mention and may praise few organizations that we are directly involved with or for which have a high degree of confidence (at the moment we mention them). Although it should never prevent that you do own research. Again never take a piece of info for truth simply because someone or a supposed conservation organization says the venue benefits conservation or the welfare of an animal. Too many well intended volunteers have fallen into that trap. Nobody is safe from making this mistake, us included (and if we do and you know something that we don’t you can always contact us). We’ll be glad to listen, discuss, help.
Ultimately you are the only one who can know & judge the relevancy of the cause, the conservation organization, the wildlife tourist venue, the volunteer project that you are exploring. The responsibility to do something you think is right is yours, but it only comes from ‘knowing’. And at EwA, we are dedicated to help you build that knowledge…
