For all the fellow tree lovers out there, here’s a link (for the blog and Facebook page) to a most amazing woman and cause, devoted to protecting our ancient forests…. “God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools.” -John Muir

La Paz Group

Click above for the video made by Australian environmental activist Miranda Gibson, who has been living on a platform in a Eucalyptus tree in Tasmania’s southern forest. She has vowed to stay there until the forests receive more protection from logging. She writes about it at Observertree:

Observer Tree needs your help!

I’ve been at the top of this tree for over 300 days now. I think it’s time for the world to know I’m here. The more people who find out and add their voice to the call for forest proteciton… the sooner we can save Tasmania’s forests and I can get down!

  2. 😀 Forest with Miranda rights – very clever. My word, what a very determined person. The world probably needs a lot more like her.

    • Isn’t that the greatest title? ALL should have such rights, in my opinion, for the greatest good they do the entire planet — with little to no protection. Such an amazing woman…

  4. Thank you so much for bringing attention to this situation. Such determination. Raising awareness is the way to go. Consciousness will then expand.

    • EXACTLY… With education and knowledge comes help and power, and assistance to the animals and land. There’s only one Earth, after all…
