Ecology

Just like other intelligent species, humans forage their environment to find the resources they need to survive. Pretty smart, eh! And this distinct ability is what enables us to come up with solutions and then apply them. So, we should use our ingenuity to rebalance the ecosystem, halt the disappearance of certain species and manage waste and non-biodegradable materials. It’s an ambitious task, but humans – knowing full well that we evolve in interrelation with the animals, forests, plants, fish, minerals, earth, water and air – have something to gain from every life form being able to thrive in the great cycle of life. What about you? Have you ever thought of an environmental solution? Are you aware of all the riches that surround us in the world?
