There are over 28 critically endangered animals in South Africa - the average South African can't even name 3 of them. Project 1000 aims to address & profile theses species, making their existence a priority. #extinction #massextinction #extinctionsix #adventure #animals #nature #wild #vegan #rawvegan #govegan #endangeredanimals #raw #run #vegansofig #SouthAfrica #capetown #africa #Project1000

Another angulate tortoise habitat destroyed due to housing developments - developing houses for humans shouldn't be at the cost of other species habitats. #tortoise #capetown #animals #vegansofig #vegan #rawvegan #adventure #nature #environment #extinctionsix #extinction #development #exploitation

One of the many victims of development. This is one of many angulate tortoises I have found, cast aside to make place for new homes. We have to learn to work with nature & other species, instead of the current manipulation, exploitation & enforced dominance. #angulatetortoise #tortoise #capetown #fynbos #development #extinctionsix #extinction #massextinction #vegansofig #vegan #rawvegan #raw #nature #animals #reptile
