I’m associated with a ONG that defends animals, and I try to live respecting the nature. I think it’s enough to learn to our sons and friends to respect the nature and all its aspects, because we are few people VS the big ones ( 7th sisters at the first place )and it’s too late to stop all the disaster humans done. I try to learn and educate people I meet to respect and to love nature and animals but if I could I would be the first one to do more to save the nature… Pam Moreno July 27th, 2011 My husband and I are growing vegetables here in our yard. Also, we particpate with my family in a much larger country garden at my sister’s house. We own and continue to drive a 2001 vintage Toyota Prius with 152K+ miles on it. It’s a super good car and we will keep it indefinitely. We are serious recyclers and live in a very modest 1K+ sq. foot old farmhouse, circa 1920. It’s 1 bedroom + an office, with 2 baths. We regularly donate to environmental causes to preserve our planet. We have plans to build more veggie growing beds to decrease our grassy yard. This cuts down on using fossil fuels to cut the grass. We have also recently started composting all our kitchen green waste. Before that we would “dig it into” our gardening beds. We do the same for green waste from my mother’s house which is 1 block away. Post Your Comment Click here to cancel reply.

Building an enclosure is a great solution, especially for backyard animals. It’s Time to Act for Right Whales Years after they agreed to expand critical habitat for endangered North Atlantic right whales, we’re still waiting on NMFS to follow through. So we took to the courts to get this much-needed protection in place. How Should We Honor Earth Day? America has many worldwide firsts in conservation: we were the first nation to establish a national park, the first to create a national wildlife refuge, the first to approve a law protecting endangered species and the first to create a national day dedicated to conservation, Earth Day. But today, we are experiencing another period of crisis in America’s commitment to conservation. When did conservation become a polarizing political issue, when it has been, for the past century, a defining characteristic of American values and the American spirit?
