We abuse the land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect. — Aldo Leopold

~~~~ Good News of the Day: With multinational companies accelerating exploitation of oil, timber and minerals, activist Ladislas Desire Ndembet decided that he had to supply a stronger local voice in the West African nation of Gabon. Financed out of his own modest salary from running a cleaning business on the side, Ndembet’s NGO is an inspired movement to conserve some of the world’s largest intact tropical rainforests for carbon capture and endangered species protection. Environmental journalist Daniel Glick gives an intriguing glimpse into Ndembet’s conservation efforts, starting with Gabon’s legend of the nine dwarves.

~~~~ Be The Change: Make an increasing shift from interacting with natural resources as commodities, to using them with love and respect.
