Connecting animals and readers

Gavin Bradley

To say that it has been a privilege writing for the Spartan this year would be a severe understatement. I have greatly enjoyed this style of writing and educating you all on animals across the Green Mountain state and the world. 

My last message to all of you amazing people out there is really important. I want to present a light challenge for anyone reading this, and that is to become more connected with the world of animals around you this summer. 

Look around. . . enjoy the world you get to be a part of. 

It is easy for our species to be so focused on our own endeavors that we forget about the environment we live in. However, I promise you, dear reader, that the world you live in is amazing. 

The world you live in needs your positive impact. You can’t run away from nature; it is part of you. 

The very essence of nature is woven into your DNA, and the connection between you and the rest of the animals on earth is very strong. 

Go outside and enjoy your world for what it is. Sit down for 30 minutes or more with your pet, do your own research, and gather information on your favorite animal or maybe even help another creature cross the road. 

These are just a few examples of the main theme I’m talking about (by connecting yourself to the animal world around you), that you can make the most out of your summer. I promise, if you connect yourself to animals, you will feel happier. 

It is ingrained in you to experience this connection, and it is extremely healthy for you. I have written many articles this year about the countless benefits of a positive animal and human relationship. 

In addition, there are many pieces of scientific evidence that back up the power of this positive relationship. No matter if it is wildlife or captive animals, the connection piece is still embedded in you. 

A lot of nature is based on relationships, and our animals’ health and our own health are certainly no exception. 

I also want to thank everyone on the Spartan staff for helping me with everything. We really have an excellent team working on this newspaper, and I am beyond privileged to be a part of it. I love this newspaper. Above all, I love humans that want to make a positive impact on this ball of rock in space. 

You will make a positive difference. You will be part of a generation that will change environmental activism forever. You will be connected!
