APRIL 2020

Our customs are the hooks we hang our values on
 
What are your traditions or your family customs for connecting with Mother Earth?

Why don’t you spend a few moments thinking on this? It was only this week that we celebrated Earth Day (22 April). This year marks 50 years since this call to action to look after our planet began. Earth Day each year can remind us of the big steps we have taken and the big steps we still need to take. It can also help us reflect on what we do every day to care for Mother Earth. Our customs and traditions are the hooks we hang our values on. Our customs and traditions make our values visible.

Stay well, stay safe, and stay connected to Mother Earth.


Thank you!

Arlo Rides for Trees

RAISING FUNDS FOR TRILLION TREES. When 11-year old Arlo saw the devastation from last summer's bushfires he was inspired to make a difference.

Whilst COVID-19 restrictions at the moment mean he can't plant trees, he still wanted to do something.

So, with the help of his family and his good friend Aiden. he set up a crowdraiser for Trillion Trees and is aiming to ride 35km and raise $500. Thank you Arlo - you really are a tree champion!

You can support Arlo's fundraising via GIVE NOW - all donations are tax deductible.

Or, if you are inspired by Arlo to hold your own fundraiser, then either head to our GIVE NOW website or EMAIL JO

The Ecology of Disease

THE NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE
There's a term biologists and economists use these days - ecosystem services - which refers to the many ways nature supports the human endeavor. Forests filter the water we drink, for example, and birds and bees pollinate crops, both of which have substantial economic as well as biological value.


If we fail to understand and take care of the natural world, it can cause a breakdown of these systems and come back to haunt us in ways we know little about. A critical example is a developing model of infectious disease that shows that most epidemics — AIDS, Ebola, West Nile, SARS, Lyme disease and hundreds more that have occurred over the last several decades — don’t just happen. They are a result of things people do to nature.


Disease, it turns out, is largely an environmental issue. Sixty percent of emerging infectious diseases that affect humans are zoonotic — they originate in animals. And more than two-thirds of those originate in wildlife. READ MORE

New dates ... Coming Soon ... Stay Tuned.
A world audit of trees in 2015 shows there are just 3 trillion trees left in the world - that's half what there used to be. 

We, as a global community, need a new tree planting target - to plant 1 trillion trees! If each person in the world plants 140 trees, we will achieve this!
