The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. The paths to it are made, not found, and the activity of making of them changes with both the destination and the maker
When you stand looking down on the Freycinet Peninsula, it’s a bit like life really – its beauty, ruggedness and ageless power have the ability to overpower, inspire or make you feel as though you’ve really just come home. Like a life well lived it has a sense of real and tragic history and a genuine hope for an exciting future for yourself
and those who will follow.
The Earth and its magnificent gift of life deserve the best efforts of every human.
Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
Who will mourn the passing of our magnificent kangaroos? Who will remember how the bush once danced in rhythm with the thumping, jumping kangaroos who flew over fences – their great tails drumming on the earth? Who will remember the big red male kangaroo lying in the desert sun, his coat almost indistinguishable from the red earth from which he came?
What will happen to the spirit of this ancient dreaming land without the great mobs of kangaroos bounding across the song lines, energizing the land? Will the sunset and dawn mourn the passing of the creatures who danced in their light?
There was no magic encounter for me with a whale in the ocean; no being zapped by a whale as I snorkelled in their world. Nothing visible or capable of explanation. In fact, I’d never seen a whale. When I first witnessed their terrible death agony, I couldn’t get the picture of a whale being harpooned out of my mind. It was a hideous mind-blowing sight. That day I recognised a purpose on the journey of my life.
We need help nature by looking after the planet’s ecosystems. We must do something about the three major things that affect our demand on our planet: what we consume, how we produce things and the size of the population.
You have to let go of the past to have a better future, and you do that through love and family.
We save paradise by an intense education program where you get people that you can trust to talk sanely about the environment and hope that the message will get through.
