What is Opensource/Crowdsource:

Similar to how Wikipedia, Occupy and Anonymous, we believe that everybody has a gift and talent and can contribute to our movement. We know that the loss of Cecil the Lion has affected many of us and we want to invite everyone to take part in this movement. If you are passionate about a particular topic, eg. elephants, we invite you to start writing about elephants and educate our community. We are looking for writers, designers, reporters, movers & shakers , activists, event planners to join our ranks and make this movement last.

What is Citizen Reporting:

The rise of the internet and social media allows everyone to speak out and conduct their own findings on different issues. No longer do we have to listen to the biased news agencies speaking their news with baises. Our crowdsourcing platform allows passionate animal lovers to share their opinions and findings to the world.

Why are there ads?

We hate ads as much as you do and would love to get rid of them but somebody has to pay for the server costs (especially when we’re using up a lot of bandwidth). We do our best to ensure ethical groups and organizations are featured on our website. If you are an ethical business or non profit that wants to have your ad featured on our site, please send us an email at editor.cecilspride@gmail.com

        If it could be as a share with you, what I post here, that is related to your site, that would be wonderful.
        I am spending much time on trips back and forth for cancer surgeries right now, so my time is quite limited.
        Please let me know what you think?

    If the law enforcement agencies go without prosecuting this ABUSED dog owner that was starved by his hands then we have a BIG PROBLEM . He needs time in jail and 5 – 10 years is not enough but we need to start somewhere. If we keep leaving this problem continue then we will never see end results. Do t he crime do he time.
