People are shit. We inherited a green Earth and we have run it to the ground. That said, every once in a while, we do tend to be nice, which gives me hope for our civilisation. To send some of that hope your way, we compiled a list of 20 events of human beings just helping some poor animals out. 

1. Might have just saved its life. 

2. This just melts my heart.

3. Just look at the little ones running to their mother.

4. FYI, this was dangerous for the people on the boat.
