With the help of Knowledgeable and Caring people from around the world, Cousins Conservancy protects Innocent Natural Animals, the Sacred Natural Earth and the Important Natural Heritage of Children by purchasing lands and preserving them as Nature Sanctuaries.

Cousins Conservancy informs and educates people, exposes harmful and destructive actions, and attempts to affect policy and law at all levels of government regarding Nature.

From Hallowed to Holocaust

Animals are the ultimate Wonders of our Universe,
created from the elements of Mother Nature,
born in the union of Life and Consciousness,
cradled in a past Earthly Paradise, struggled and
evolved over millions of years to become
competent Living Beings.

Now, each day, billions of innocent and
defenseless Animals, natural and genetically
manipulated, experience pain, fear,
neglect, harassment, stress
in factory farms,
slaughter on roads, torture in laboratories,
merciless trapping and hunting, habitat
annihilation and world-wide Species
genocide, at the hands of humans.

Natural Animals are amazing for their Beauty, Variety, Complexity and Ability, both physically and mentally. Advanced Animals are intelligent, emotional, curious, competent and respectful and are capable of tolerance, affection, grief, intuition and reason. Many Animals in groups display sophisticated social and inter-personal skills such as cooperation, strategy, reciprocation, compliance and altruism.

Natural Animals have self-worth and intrinsic value. They go to work every day determined to find food, protect their families and defend their homes and territories. They consciously make decisions, overcome challenges and persevere, showing a will to live and a spirit for life. All natural Animals have common and basic needs. Just like fish need water and birds need air, natural Animals need unhindered access to large and connected areas of the Sacred Earth, preserved in its Natural state, in order to find food, mate, raise their young and complete their very Essence of Being. Animals have the inherent right to live Naturally and Free.

Thousands of years ago our hominid ancestors slowly reached a threshold in biology and neurology. Bipedalism, dexterous hands and large brains allowed Homo Sapiens Sapiens (you and me) to intricately and extensively manipulate Nature, better control our destinies and achieve a high degree of intelligence and sapience.

But just how sapient are we when we selfishly, excessively and unnecessarily cause and allow pain, fear, injustice and indignity to innocent, defenceless and less intelligent beings, and destroy most of our one and only Sacred Natural Earth? These are ignorant and cowardly acts, and not acting in a significant way to stop the cruelty and destruction is complicity. Having respect and compassion are greater examples of intelligence and sapience than the ability to do mathematics or build cars.

Animals experience pain, fear, suffering, neglect, harassment, stress, hardship, thirst, hunger, fatigue, exhaustion, injury disease, aging and death. It's time we intelligent and sapient humans ACT to preserve our Sacred Earth and protect Innocent Animals.

Cousins Conservancy will hold Municipal Councillors, Members of the Legislature and Members of Parliament personally responsible for putting Species at Risk, and the continuing loss of our Natural Places and Heritage due to their decisions.

Animals We Are Cousins Humans

Right now Cousins Conservancy is attempting to buy 3000 feet of lake front property in order to keep it in its natural state. The following pictures are actual photos of the land and of the animals that live on and frequent the land. If we can't raise the money needed to acquire the remaining shoreline and make it a nature sanctuary then soon the entire shoreline around the lake will be developed and destroyed.

Lake Front Property

Buying land is an expensive but important endeavour. Please join with other caring people from around the world and donate in a significant way to help Cousins Conservancy acquire this crucial habitat and other lands. Please help to protect Animals, preserve the Earth and secure the Natural Heritage of Children. Thank you.

Preserving our One and Only Beautiful and Sacred Natural Earth and protecting Amazing and Innocent Natural Animals from suffering and extinction are our most important and urgent responsibilities and are the greatest gifts we can give to our children and to future generations.
