THE RAINFOREST TRUST
The Trusts major goal is the purchase of rainforest around the world in order to protect it from deforestation.
To create wildlife corridors between reserves and protect endangered species.
If indigenous tribes occupy the land their homes and way of life are protected too.
So far more then 8 million hectares have been protected around the world including Australia.
For more information see Rainforest Trust Australia.
empowered, there is a lot we can all do.
Sometimes we cannot help our local area no matter how many letters we write but we can see the bigger picture and we can show support for those that can make changes.
The Garden of Eden 2020
Tree's killed, vegetation cleared and poisoned.
I have seen it all.
A new neighbour, more trees gone.
The destruction continues
year after year.
Old timer snakes are captured.
Out of the garden of Eden!
The fairy wrens, the finches, the lizards, the whipbirds.
Nowhere to hide. No home.
The kookaburras and cockatoos are going crazy,
WHY? WHY? WHY?
This time it's fire danger.
Lets get rid of all trees!
The chainsaw sings at my place and my neighbour waters
the wasteland and smiles.
Anger does nothing but hurt,
This is my lesson,
I look to the future.
I plant little trees.
Swamp mahogony, paperbark, tuckaroo.
I have done my research.
And my power lies in nurturing.
I am part of this beautiful place.
It will grow and mature.
This power is in each of us.
To give to nature,
is to give to ourselves.
Women you are the Garden of Eden.
