2. Turn your backyard into a humane habitat.
It doesn't matter if it's an apartment balcony, suburban yard, corporate property, place of worship, or community park; you can turn it into habitat for wildlife. Get started with these 13 things. And to further help animals, reduce the amount of pesticide and herbicide you use while shrinking your carbon and water usage footprints.
3. Dispose of plastics carefully.
Plastic waste can hurt wildlife, both on land and in the sea. Land animals can ingest plastic, choking on it. Tons of plastic material also ends up in oceans, cruelly ensnaring marine wildlife or harming them when they eat it. Dispose of plastics carefully, don't flush plastics into the sewer system, use reusable shopping bags, cut six-pack rings to save sea turtles, and slow your boat down to avoid striking and injuring marine mammals.
4. When you take vacations, support wildlife tourism and other eco-tourist-friendly destinations.
Make humane vacation choices to view animals in their natural habitat, supporting with your dollars the protection of parks and animals and all the businesses that depend on them. Kenya, Costa Rica, Nepal, and so many other countries value protected areas and wildlife because tourists flock to see these rich biological resource areas and their wild residents.
