After some of the news this week, I really needed this. Maybe it'll help somebody else's mood as well; who knows?

10. The Lion Guardians project


Africa's lion population has dwindled to fewer than 30,000, down from half a million in 1950.

Colorfully dressed in traditional clothing framed against a cloudless sky, a Maasai warrior uses 21st-century technology to monitor the lions he is tracking.

What a beautiful post. This warms my heart and makes me teary (good tears of course).
Thank you so much, my dear! There is something good in the world and it is worth fighting for :-)
