“Taking Root” – About Wangari Mathai and Green Belt Movement – Youtube link :
A must watch for all those involved in conserving the natural resources of the planet.
“There was something in our people that had helped them conserve those forests. They were not looking at trees and seeing timber. They were not looking at elephants and seeing ivory. Or looking at the Cheetahs and seeing the beautiful skin for sale. There was no such economic value of these animals so they let them be. It was in their culture to let them be.” -Wangari Maathai .
