BE THE SOLUTION THE WORLD NEEDS YOU TO BE
"Thousands of years ago, humans may have actually been known as the “keepers” of ecosystems. Our species played a significant role in the environment, similar to all other species of animals. Humans helped to keep and maintain balanced biodiversity, foraged for food, and built their own shelters out of natural resources.
As time progressed, obviously dramatic changes in the relationship between humans and their environment occurred. As skillfully adaptive creatures, humans continue to experience exponential change, especially in relatively recent years (e.g. industrial revolution). So, instead of making “connections”, our species could be needing reconnection – to the environment, to each other, and to our compassion and respect for other animals."
