About Me

Self1

 Hi! My name is Christina Webster.

I’m a freshman in a small school called Delaware Valley College. There, I’m studying Conservation and Wildlife Management. Clearly, I love animals, but that’s not the only passion I have. I really enjoy writing (thus this blog), photography, videography and computers (mostly for entertainment purposes).

In the future, I hope to start and run a wildlife rehabilitation center focused on conserving endangered species. I’m not entirely sure what species I’d like to focus on, if any at all. Regardless, I know that’s my “calling.” I plan on achieving that dream very soon.

So, thank you for checking out my blog. I want all my readers to become inspired to do more for this great planet. I hope you enjoy it enough to follow it and become involved. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    Dear Christina,

    I’m interested in you because you say you save worms from the road. I do the same and am also considered mad but I respect all forms of life as they are wonderful. Life is the most precious thing we have on earth, in whatever form or shape it takes. But that is not all I do – like you I have other interests, photography, the pinao, reading, cinema and walking.

    I’m writing to you to ask how you cope with the depression associated with the ill treatment of animals, vivisection, farming of animals, circuses, Chinese medecine, zoos, etc, etc. Sometimes I get really bad and don’t know how to carry on. It is so unjust because animals are not cruel or nasty but only kill to eat. Humans are cruel, harming animals for entertainment, etc.

    How do you cope? What can be done? In the very near future there will be few animal species left and I cant bear the thought.

    1. Hello Natalie! Thank you for your comment. Thank you for visiting my About Me page. I too am considered mad in my little circle of people here 🙂 Personally, that doesn’t really bother me because I know what I feel is right and there is never a such thing as caring too much for a life. Now, regarding depression, I have to say, balance is key. When you decide to dedicate your life to improving animal welfare, the immense amount of depressing animal stories are definitely overwhelming. I am right with you with that one. What I would suggest, personally, is to really keep in mind the good things we can do for animals and even check out books, articles, pictures, etc. related to the good stuff. Remember that with people like you, things WILL get better. So don’t give up and know that you are definitely making a difference, despite the many horrible stories that may suggest otherwise.

      Sorry for the sort of long response. I can go on and on about this kind of material, so if you need some more suggestions or just someone to talk to, feel free to comment again! I check regularly.

      Have a wonderful week.

      1. Also, feel free to follow my blog via email subscription to get some more articles. If you’re interested in stress-reducing techniques (related to the animal welfare aspect) or just want to hear happy animal stories, I’d be happy to provide you with that!

  2. Hi Christina. I just read your essay on The Dodo about worms and “starfishing” and was very impressed. I too care about all creatures–even flies and worms–and it’s always refreshing to hear from others who care about them too, since we are often few and far between. Good for you for speaking up! I’d heard the starfish story before, but not the term “starfishing” and I really liked it. Doing the best we can to make the world a little better–that’s all we can do, isn’t it? I think you might like the book my husband and I wrote, called Great Peacemakers. It tells the inspiring life stories of 20 peacemakers around the world in 5 paths to peace, one of which is Valuing All Life, about the connection between peacemaking and our treatment of animals. You might especially like the chapter about Albert Schweitzer and his ethic of Reverence for Life. You can check out the book at http://www.GreatPeacemakers.com. If you read the book, I’d love to hear your thoughts about it. Again, thanks for your insightful essay and keep up the good work!

    1. Hi Heather! Thank you for your comment. I love reading what people have to say about my writing! I agree, the number of people who care about every form of life is very, very small, but those that do care are among the most compassionate people in the world. I’m glad you like my term “starfishing,” although I can’t really take full credit for it! 🙂 Your book seems very interesting. I’m going to check it out! Thank you again for your comment it was great to hear from you!

  3. I used to be able to find good information from your blog articles.|
    Thanks for any other great article. Where else may anybody get that kind of info in such an ideal means of writing? I’ve a presentation next week, and I am at the search for such info.

  4. You can definitely see your skills in the work you write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how they believe. Always follow your heart.

  5. Hey! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group?
