A World Wildlife Fund report released Tuesday claims that the planet's wildlife population, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish, has declined by 52 percent since 1970. The executive director of A Rocha USA said that the findings are alarming, but not surprising, and called on Christians to witness to the world by starting to care for the planet.
"Indeed, the report simply confirms what we read in Hosea — the birds of the air, the beasts of the field and the fish of the sea are dying — and in Romans — the creation groans. Why? Because of humankind's sin. We have not treated God's Earth as we should. We've treated it as rapacious squatters rather than the Christ-like stewards God created us to be," Tom Rowley, executive director of A Rocha USA, told The Christian Post in an email on Wednesday.
"Imagine what a difference we could make if we Christians began to care. Not just care about. That's easy and not worth much. But actually and actively care for both people and planet. Which is really what A Rocha is all about. Consider also, what a witness it would be to an unbelieving world if Christ followers started caring for the planet." more >>
Chuckey the 14-year-old dog is being hailed a hero after risking his own life to save his family from a fire in their home. It's a remarkable story of bravery and courage from Chuckey that the family will never ever forget.
Some dogs like Chuckey know when there is trouble. Instead of just running away, he barked until his owners realized the situation. After it was all said and done, Chuckey was injured pretty badly, and left with scars and burns on his body.
The whole family survived the flames, but to cover his expensive medical bills it would be hard. You won't believe who is covering the bill for them! more >>

The Wildlife Aid founder Simon Cowell traveled down to the River Thames in Southern England to help free a trapped cygnet that was stuck in a chain link fence. When he arrived he saw this little animal tangled up in the fence and began to approach him.
Without hesitation, the father swan jumped out of the water and like any loving parent began to attack the man. The man did his best to calm the swan, but it wouldn't stop without the baby back in the water safe.
After several attempts, Cowell finally got the cygnet out of the fence and safely back in the water. The man only suffered a bruised arm from the father swan. more >>
