To all those who are holding an audacious faith in the future, please take the time to read the following article from Bolivia.

For a very long time I have been concerned for the well being of our Mother Earth and all the beautiful creatures that live on this planet.We must continue to strive to stop the greed and corruption within our governments and corporations as they continuing to destroy our country and our future.

We must all give the world the best we can. 

It may never be enough - but give the best you have anyway.

Listen with your heart.


P.S. Words of wisdom from Denise Garrett and Kim Dale:

"The planet can survive without human life, but it cannot survive without animal life.

The animals are the keepers of the Earth - they pollinate it, fertilize it, prune it, aerate it and keep the Earth healthy.

They are life itself.

Without them we are the endangered species - and remember every time a species dies, we are ourselves one step closer to extinction."

Here's the article, that I'd like you all to read -

Thank you,
Bob Irwin

Bolivia is set to pass the world's first laws granting nature equal rights to humans. The Law of Mother Earth, now agreed by politicians and grassroots social groups, redefines the country's rich mineral deposits as "blessings" and is expected to bring radical new conservation and social measures to reduce pollution and control industry.

The country, which has been pilloried by the US and Britain in the United Nations climate talks for demanding steep carbon emission cuts, will establish 11 new rights for nature. They include: the right to life and to exist; the right to continue vital cycles and processes free from human alteration; the right to pure water and clean air; the right to balance; the right not to be polluted; and the right to not have cellular structure modified or genetically altered.

Controversially, it will also enshrine the right of nature "to not be affected by mega-infrastructure and development projects that affect the balance of ecosystems and the local inhabitant communities."

"It makes world history. Earth is the mother of all," said the Vice-President, Alvaro Garcia Linera.

The law has been heavily influenced by a resurgent indigenous Andean spiritual world view, which places the environment and the earth deity known as the Pachamama at the centre of all life. Humans are considered equal to all other entities.

Bolivia has long suffered from serious environmental problems from the mining of tin, silver, gold and other raw materials.

  1. This Law is just amazing! How wonderful it would be if Australia felt the same way, sadly I do think many are very behind the times in their thinking when it comes to Australian Native Animals Conservation. I loved the "words of wisdom" also. Another great article. I have joined the FB Page and signed the petition.
