The Origin of 365 Ways...

I came across this amazing book by Phillippe Bourseiller when i was in Denmark close to a year ago: "For the past 15 years, Phillippe Bourseiller has photographed nature from every angle: from the eruption of the volcano Pinatubo to the great deserts of ice and sand, he has captured the hidden colours and breathtaking lights of our planet. But our contemporary way of life threatens this fragile beauty. To encourage more restraint, Philippe Bourseiller teams 365 photographs with a daily ecological action. Each of the initiatives is accompanied by facts and statistics that illustrate the threats to the environment posed by our behavious, and demonstrate the beneficial consequences of the recommended actions. Each day reveals the image of a wonder of nature along with the guidelines to preserve our planet. Through the pages of 365 Ways to Save the Earth, a truly ethical way of life takes shape." Starting from today, i would like to post each inspiring page according to the days on the yearly calendar (supposed to start from jan, but...i'll catch up!). Hopefully, you'll look at everyday a little differently after this...

Biodiversity - Be unobtrusive while out in the countryside

Primary tropical forest, Austrailia

More than one-third of Europe's bird species are threatened with extinction. Birds are vulnerable to habitat damage from intensive agriculture and forestry, the growing impact of development on the land, unrestricted water use and all kinds of pollution.
When you are out in the countryside, treat wildlife with respect. Do not disturb animals, especially young animals and chicks. Watch them discreetly, from a distance, without disturbing the peace and tranquility of their nesting places.
