Ok, I’ll admit the robot panda is a little weird. Maybe I’ve been watching too much Westworld, but I started thinking about what zoos might be like in the future. Maybe they will be more virtual reality, rather than robot facsimile.
Pandas are a vulnerable species and their numbers are dwindling due in large part to habitat loss and habitat fragmentation (read human impact). It is hard to think about the other challenges in the world when we’re facing such an immediate crisis.
Sometimes we have to focus inward, stay healthy and gather strength so we can have the energy to tackle the big challenges in life. Go easy on yourself and gather strength.
Now that’s a Wednesday kind of message.
