The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the Earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.Chief Seattle
The International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s Red list of Threatened species, established in 1964, is a critical indicator of the health of the world’s biodiversity. It informs and catalyzes action for biodiversity and policy change, essential to protecting the natural resources we need to survive. Currently there are more than 98,500 species on the Red list with more than 27,000 threatened with extinction.
We believe speaking to young people in a language they understand is key to connecting and creating interest and passion for our non-human family. Terms such as “mean people”, and “not nice” for younger ages helps enforce the importance of keeping Mother Nature and her family, safe.
We at Mother Nature’s Heroes are constantly educating about our non-human family. Fostering this love in young people is essential in protecting our planet and all who live here, human and non-human.
