I am trying to raise the money to do a PhD. I would hugely appreciate you having a look at and supporting my campaign. Thank you so very very much.  Have a lovely day.

The heron moves in slow motion
careful,
deliberating,
testing each step
toes touching the ground
tentatively

And then pauses
freezes in both time and space
becomes grey stone
still, silent, statuesque
yellow eyes focus
patient yet intent
the neck coils back
serpentine
ready to strike

Myself, the cyclists,
the joggers, the dogwalkers
people out for an evening stroll,
ducks, swans, midges, bats
the wind in the trees,
the faint few drops of rain ...
dissapear
The world shrinks
to a slight movement in the water
all that is important
a small, dark, shape
unaware

The moment comes
Refraction, angle, trajectory
calculated instinctively, instantly
And a spit second, spear thrust
Reduces the fish
To ripples
spreading out slowly
from the point were it
was

fading to nothing

No it isn't, you have yet to provide evidence for either altruistic interactions between non-human animals of different species or for your idea that people suffer more from disease or genetic disorders now, and by evidence I mean scientific evidence. I want to see peer reviewed papers that you think support your claim, not telling me to look on YouTube or trying to get me to buy a book. Being skeptical is not the same as having my head in the sand.

There are many times animals have helped other species.
See lots of reports of human activity that is very admirable,
but if I had to judge humans on a individual basis, they all 
come out as needing to be culled. Not a good trait on my part:( (Sad)

So you think all individuals should be culled? I'd say that's rather mean to say the least - you have no one you care about? sad.
Feeling that way is certainly not a good trait to have, but that is a bad thing about you, not a bad thing about the human race 
Please provide an example of a time when a non-human animal has helped another non human animal of another species (and in a way that can be counted as altruistic, ie the helper is not just 'helping' in order to gain something for themselves)

just look on youtube, there are hundreds of altruistic animals :) (Smile)  You might say it is just hormones etc. and you may well be
right, but that applies to humans as we are part of the animal kingdom.
I do care about several humans but do see  infantilism coming in very strongly which is indicative of species 
coming to the end of its useful life. Maybe mother nature will be kind and cull us like we cull over populations of
other animals to make them healthy (e.g. foxes)
You are right, I am a very sad person:( (Sad), I am also quite old and in my life-time have seen a speeding up of change
in disease and genetic disorders and it scares the s--t  out of me
