Brave Man Saves Starving Pelican With A Fishing Wire Wrapped Around Its Beak.

When he noticed this poor bird had fishing wire tied around its beak, this man had to do something about it.

Animals can be scary especially the wild ones so it’s not surprising why we feel that way towards them. However, it’s the innate character of humans which tells us that when a situation calls for one, we’ll be there to help whoever or whatever it is. It’s humbling to know that those people still exist today just like this man in the video.

Apparently, he noticed a pelican in need with a fishing wire wrapped around its beak. He could tell that it was struggling so with enough caution, he hurriedly came to its rescue. The man was able to grab the pelican’s legs before it even escapes.

Pelicans suffered from habitat destruction, disturbance, pollution and have been persecuted because they are deemed as competition for fishing. These birds are characterized by their long beak and a large throat pouch used for catching prey so given the situation, it can hurt people but this didn’t stop the man. With a help from another person, they held it, made sure that its beak was shut close and shortly after, it was released from pain. They then let it fly, now finally free.

These Coffee Cups Will Grow Into Trees When Thrown Away.

This is amazing!

By

With over 400 million cups of coffee being sipped everyday in America, a creative company based in California had the clever idea of upcycling  disposable coffee cups.

Reduce. Reuse. Grow, an environmental organisation, will be creating biodegradable cups that will decompose within 180 days. Of course, that idea is nothing new so they took upcycling to the next level by embedding seeds into the disposable cups which will eventually turn into trees or native flowers.

Users of the coffee cups have two options. They can either plant the cup themselves or put it in a bin inside the coffee shops. The organisation would collect and eventually distribute it in  communities in need of reforestation....

A Drone Was Flying Over The Beach. What It Captured Is Simply BREATHTAKING!

Now this is a stunning piece of artwork!

Andres Amador is a 42-year-old "earthscape artist". It is an apt appellation, as Amador is known to create wonderful artworks on the ground. He uses the sand as his canvas, and rakes and combs as his paintbrush. Amador creates masterpieces on different beaches and shorelines. Some of the patterns and designs that he makes are as big as a football field.

Amador used to be an environmental scientist. Ten years ago, he quit his day job and decided to pursue his passion. Since then, he has created massive "earthscapes" on various shorelines, including California and the Carribean. He takes photos of his work via a camera mounted on a quad-copter, and then sells the prints.

A few of Andres' works:

MUST SEE: Kids’ Priceless Reactions After Trying Breakfast From Around the World.

This is great.

By

It is important to introduce culture in the early stages of life. Often, kids would enjoy going to museums, traveling, attending language classes, or watching shows about the cultures of other countries. Introducing new and unusual things to children would elicit priceless reactions.

An interesting experiment was conducted by Cut.com, a video production company, that features American children get a taste of cultures across the globe, literally! The kids were offered meals while on camera. What's the catch? The breakfast served was not their typical meal.

The reactions of these adorable kids are hilarious when asked to try the breakfast staples from Vietnam, Poland, Brazil, Korea, Finland, and the Netherlands....
