Can this be adapted across the world
A LOW-CARBON DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY Guyana’s Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS). Reflects the outcome
of almost a year of review and consultation within Guyana, coupled with input from climate change negotiations
at the United Nations, and other international climate change initiatives.

Re: DeforestAction and Orangutans

An ecologist studying flamingos on Kenya ’s Lake Nakuru has noticed an interesting phenomenon. Every year, when the time comes for migration, a few flamingos start the process by taking off from the lake. Since none of the others take any notice, they soon turn round and come back.

The next day they try again. This time a few others straggle along with them but, again, the vast majority just carry on with business as usual, so the pioneers return to the lake. This trend continues for a few days. Each time a few more birds join in but, since the thousands of others still take no notice, the migration plan is aborted.

Finally, one day, the same few birds take off again. This time however, the tiny increment to their number - maybe just one extra flamingo - is enough to tip the balance. The whole flock takes flight. The migration begins.

If we apply this concept to our current predicament, it gives rise to an immediate sense of empowerment. Rather than dismissing a small action - ‘what difference will it make?’ - or the role of the individual - ‘what can I do about it?’ - we see that change is actually always propelled by the individual, or that a small action can be an instrumental part of the significant changes that arise through complex processes.

Seen from that perspective, we are the ones with the power - the power to cast ripples into the pond and become active nodes within a global network; the power to make positive change into a contagious impulse; the power to help build the sort of world we want for our children.

That is a very inspiring article.
And besides actions to stop deforestation in particular, I believe it is important to think about ceasing our destructive intervention into bio-system in general. That refers to our life styles. One aspect is zoo. Why do you we keep animals in artificial surroundings? I am often told that it is for children to see animals with their eyes in full scale. Well, does it make those children better people to witness overall human cruelty towards animals?

Deforestation is a Serious Problem That is Affecting This Globe of Ours.

It is expedient to have soldiers like the kids that fought to save the gorilla live in Australia in most part of the world to curb this problem. I am with the opinion when this idea spread worldwide; we could make an immense change to global warming army. The Global Movement for Wildlife Preservation & Conservation is looking in similar direction to have students channel the cause of saving our wilds in Liberia.

We say bravo to the kids’ soldiers and encourage them to extend their expertise to partners in progress with some similar ideas.

DeforestAction: what can we do?
Jul 30, 2011

I was thinking about the actions we can take. What can we do? Should we have petitions? Should we boycott against companies who are destroying the last acres of our precious forests?

Yes, the last time when I went to a zoo I was about twelve and never took my kids to a zoo.

We shall make more and more protected zones.

I'm pretty happy that there are still people who care about the forest and the species living in it. Keep up with the support!

Amazing article! I think it's great that kids realize these issues around them and are taking action into stopping/solving them. My class is having a video conference in a couple weeks and we're hoping to also raise awareness in these kind of issues. Go Orangutans! big grin
