WOMEN + WILDERNESS + WILDLIFE

The Cosmic Sister Women + Wilderness + Wildlife advocacy project spreads the word about the state of wilderness, wildlife and animal rights, with preference given to promoting women's expert voices on the frontline of this work. We promote organizations working to inform and protect as well as individuals and businesses that support those organizations by placing, pitching, producing and publishing quality narratives and interviews of experts and cultural influencers about “wilderness as habitat” issues such as plastic pollution’s effect on marine life and aggressive destruction of the world’s rainforests. We promote the work of experts who are defending the rights of threatened, endangered and critically endangered species.

WOMEN + WILDERNESS + WILDLIFE PROJECTS

WOMEN + WILDERNESS + WILDLIFE (#WomenWildernessWildlife)
The Cosmic Sister Women + Wilderness + Wildlife educational initiative spreads the word about the state of wilderness, wildlife and animal rights, with preference given to promoting women's expert voices on the frontline of this work. We promote organizations working to inform and protect as well as individuals and businesses that support those organizations by placing, pitching, producing and publishing quality narratives and interviews of experts and cultural influencers about “wilderness as habitat” issues such as plastic pollution’s effect on marine life and aggressive destruction of the world’s rainforests. We promote the work of experts who are defending the rights of threatened, endangered and critically endangered species.

MOTHER NATURE'S DOG
Wherever wolves and wild canines run free, indigenous cultures have revered them as symbols of loyalty, free will, fearlessness and unity. But they haven’t had it easy in North America, where negative myths prevail. Fear-based stereotypes, the fur trade, antiquated, senseless and cruel cultural concepts such as “recreational” hunting and “pest control,” and use of public lands for life stock ranching has resulted in Mother Nature’s dogs being culled and persecuted --- in some cases to the point of near-extinction. Wild canines, which include fox, coyote and wolves, play an important role in ecology and have a right to live freely in their natural environments.

NEW ZEALAND DOLPHIN
There are only two classifications worse than “critically endangered,” and they are “extinct in the wild” and “extinct,” full stop. New Zealand would go down in history as the first nation to extinguish a marine dolphin. This extinction set would a precedent. New Zealand would go down in history as the first nation to extinguish a marine dolphin.

WILD HORSES
America's remaining wild horses are under aggressive attack and rapidly disappearing from government-managed, citizen-owned wilderness spaces.

WILDERNESS AS HABITAT
Wildlife needs wilderness--not just to survive, but also to live freely. Sadly, many species struggle to survive due to increased human activity and expansion into habitats they call home. This project includes works from our RAINFOREST and WATER projects.

WATER
Water—oceans, lakes, rivers, rain, aquifers—is essential to life on earth. If we continue to pollute and deplete our water we simply will not survive. Neither will the other species we share this beautiful planet with. What would we do that? What would that make us?

RAINFOREST
The rainforests of the world are not just stunning to look at—they are also critical to life as we know it. These magnificent rainforests are stilling being destroyed at a rate that most people would find hard to believe. Cosmic Sister is working with many other dedicated environmentalists around the world to help save the world's precious Rainforests before they disappear.

Wildly Magical Treasures of the Amazon Rainforest Being on the environmental frontline means bearing witness to the best and worst of what we’re capable of as a species. When my heart hurts, I meditate on the miracle of life in these interconnected rainforest beings, and their spirit medicine leaves me renewed, refreshed and inspired to keep up the fight.
