It was a beautiful afternoon, spending quality time with parents with some good snacks and bit of tea and playing with my Labrador dog- Bruno just made it better.

And suddenly we heard the sound of a crying baby monkey which due to its small size somehow entered our house’s verandah but it was unable to go back.

We tried to help but baby monkey was getting scared and even the mother of the baby monkey was scared of us as it might have thought that we were trying to harm the baby monkey.

And even the baby monkey’s sibling seemed to be tensed for it.

So, we didn’t do anything and we let the mother monkey rescue it’s child.

To gain the trust of the monkey and to make them believe that we weren’t harming them rather we were trying to help them, we decided to feed them.

So, the father monkey came near and ate it

Seeing which mother monkey got some confidence and went near her child to save it.

And the best moment was when the full family reunited.

Seeing the mother monkey giving tight hug to the baby monkey made me emotional

I realised that all living beings are like us so we shouldn’t harm them by any means.

Just because animals can’t speak like we do, it doesn’t mean they don’t have feelings or emotions.

“The wildlife and its habitat cannot speak, so we must and we will….”- Theodore Roosevelt

They have same feelings like us. A mother monkey loves its child as much as our mother would love us so please don’t throw stones and harm them as they didn’t harm you.

Try to understand their feelings and emotions. I feel bad when children throw stones just for fun. It might seem fun to them but imagine what monkeys would be going through.

Imagine if you were that monkey how would you feel.

So, treat every living being equally as we all are part of this beautiful planet and we all have been gifted this beautiful life to live so let’s live peacefully and let them live as well.

“We Don’t Own the Planet Earth, We Belong to it.

And We Must Share It With Our Wildlife.”- Steve Irwin

People should value each and every living being around us because all living beings are dependent on one another.

When you disturb one then the other also get affected because they are very important for maintaining biodiversity.

“ If we save our wild places, we will ultimately save ourselves.”- Steve Irwin

So, let’s love and conserve our wildlife.
