I scrolled through my feed to go and copy this quote, because I think the world could do with the reminder. When I looked at the date I saw I had posted it (with this photo) on the 16 Nov 2016 - almost a year ago to the day. How so many people have still not realised that we have only one planet and only one chance to protect it, baffles me. But for those who do, and who work tirelessly everyday to protect it, support it, advocate for it and do their bit, no matter how small - heres to you. Don’t ever stop. .
"Men are easily inspired by human ideas, but they forget them just as quickly. Only Nature is eternal unless we senselessly destroy it. . . .
In fifty years time nobody will be interested in the results of conferences which fill today's headlines.. .
But fifty years from now when a lion walks into the red dawn and roars resoundingly, it will mean something to people and quicken their hearts... they will stand in quiet awe as for the first time in their lives, they watch 20,000 zebra wander across the empty plain.. .
Is it then really so stupid to work for the zebras, lions and men who will walk the earth in a hundred or two hundred years time? "
Bernhard Grzimek - 1965
