Being in nature, out in the woods, witnessing wildlife in their natural habitat brings me such joy.
That is why I love living in the country.
I wish I could do more to ensure that our wildlife had a safe, healthy environment forever.
What benefits wildlife benefits our earth.
When our earth benefits so do we.
Every year, March 12 through 16 is National Wildlife Week.
There are easy steps we can take to help out.
National Wildlife Week How To Help Our Animal Friends
Disclosure: This is a sponsored article between Chewy.com and Fashion Beyond Forty. I only write about brands and business I or my furkids have personally tested and trust.
Everyone can be a part of making life better for wild animals:
Recycling has to be the easiest way to help conserve nature.
I do realize not everyone has curbside pick up.
We used to have to drive to our local drop off station.
Curbside is nice indeed and I am glad we now have it but it is worth the trip to take your recycling in if you are able.
Carpool, Bus, Bike, Or Walk:
If you live in town or close enough to your destination consider biking or carpooling instead of driving.
My Grandfather rode his bike everywhere literally up until the day he passed.
Walking is another open of course.
If you must travel by motorized engine give carpooling a try or a city bus.
Pick Up Trash Outside:
Next time you take a walk, bring along a recyclable bag or washable tote.
Fill it up with trash or recyclables you find along the way.
It does not take more than a quick second to pick something up from alongside the road.
Doing so just could save the life of an animal.
Skip The Plastic Bags:
When shopping take reusable totes with you.
In addition, skip those thin plastic baggies in the produce section.
Just toss them loose in your cart.
You will be washing them when you get home anyway, so who cares if they are each individually touched.
There are plenty of organizations that happily accept donations.
Just do a Google search “donate to wildlife conservation”.
You can choose from many excellent organizations that are doing amazing things.
I am sure you will see several that you have heard of before.
This year my pups are celebrating their wild side in honor of National Wildlife Week.
Link wants to show you how he celebrates his wild side with Blue Buffalo Wilderness Wild Bones.
Out prowling, Link suddenly smells a yummy aroma.
He looks into the distance and sees a glimmering glistening object.
He the hunter, the object his prey…
Taking his time as to not scare his prey Link crouches down.
Getting his body as close to the ground as possible.
Walking as quietly as possible while the ice crunches under his feet…
Link arrives at his target and sniffs it out.
The prey does not make a move.
It does make a slight crackling sound as he pushes his nose against it.
Link notices how delicious it smells…
He is not even concerned that the prey is as big as he is.
All he knows is he must have it.
Just how does he get into it?
Quizzical and curious Link looks to his Grandma with the most darling eyes.
Who could resist?
Of course, we went inside and Link had the yummiest treat.
One that is also great for his teeth!
