World Wildlife Fund Profile

Ever heard of an animal called the pika? Or the pichi? How about the golden-rumped sengi? If you haven't, you're not alone. They're all animals on the endangered species list, but WWF - no, not the wrestlers - has been working hard to protect them as well as other animals that are close to extinction. Find out more about the World Wildlife Fund!

 

World Wildlife Fund - WWF's Smackdown on Pollution

Animals, insects and plants are threatened by factors like global warming, toxic pollution, deforestation, overfishing and poaching (hunting animals illegally). Many species have become extinct, or are near it, so the World Wildlife Fund has made it their mission to preserve nature and protect animals around the world. But WWF doesn't determine which species are considered endangered - the IUCN (the World Conservation Union) does. By working with the IUCN, scientists and environmentalists, WWF is determined to protect wildlife so that we'll have a healthy planet for future generations.

World Wildlife Fund - Protecting the Endangered

Although WWF works to protect all endangered species, they pay special attention to tigers, rhinos, elephants, great apes, pandas, whales, dolphins and marine turtles, which all need extra protection in order to survive. To find the complete list of critically endangered species, check out the IUCN's Red List of Threatened Species.

World Wildlife Fund - How You Can Help!

With so many endangered species around the world, WWF needs your help! By making a cash donation, your money will help fight poaching and prevent habitat loss. You can even adopt an animal in the wild (adoption fees cost $25 for a single tiger, elephant, panda or gorilla). You won't be able to take it home with you, but you will get an adoption certificate and computer desktop images of your adopted animal. So what are you waiting for? Head to the official World Wildlife Fund website, www.wwf.org to get more info on how you can help protect endangered animals and their habitats!

If someone is bullying you to the point of making you cry - first of all: I am so sorry that is happening and that is NOT okay. Have you told any adults? You should really tell someone in your RL.  Technically we should be able to be ourselves regardless of who we are without worrying about getting picked on. I know realistically that's not always the case.  What are some of the things in your life that make you to happiest? If I were you and to me you sound like an interesting & creative person - I would focus on your strengths? Then focus on doing things that make you feel good on the inside. Maybe you have a favourite queen song? Can you paint a picture with that song on repeat, can you go for a hike or a jog while listening to your fav. music? Have you ever thought of writing fan fiction about Queen? All these things help to let of steam.  Bullying is NOT okay. Please tell someone and then find a constructive, healthy way to spend some time positively. Try to practice self love, and be less judgmental with the way you see yourself - just because you are different or think differently - that's a good thing! Celebrate it  [s:p/zsv]

my father would usaully yell at me for making his food wrong and sometimes if im ten minutes late my mom would say something like this "you need to grow up and take cares of your chours and stop going on my phone" then she go off topic like "you need more friends and go out doors and". Then my dad is all like "are you sleepy bc you eat to much junk food (even thou i barely even eat a full blown meal)". Oh and my brother, he keeps saying how ugly i am and he brings his girlfriend (which is one year younger than him" into my room like can i be alone. What i am saying is family do not like the youngest child.

Tell the manager. According to the rules, if you want to get hacks (nice messages on your profile by someone) Then you have to ask them to do it through comments. Otherwise these things happen.
