The world as we know today has a very diverse ecology, with macro, micro and nano ecosystems playing out their individual roles. These roles in toto make up the delicate balance that help us thrive or perish. We as humans sometimes play roles in the nurture or wanton destruction of these ecosystems that play so vital a role in keeping our planet with its fauna and flora intact, either unwittingly or for pecuniary gains.
I believe that activism in the form of raising voices, signing petitions and addressing issues with authorities against practices that go against the tenets of maintainence of a healthy ecosystem, should we ever encounter evidence of interests wanting to tamper with the checks and balances that keep our ecosphere ship-shape, wherever in the world it be, would be the goal of Team Eco-issues. Any whimper in the dark speaks more volumes than the defeaning silence of abject acceptance of a wrongdoing, wouldn't it ? Feb 19

Journey to the Sinking Lands
Madagascar has suffered environmental degradation over a significant part of its land mass. Forests that once blanketed the eastern third of the island have now been degraded, fragmented, and converted to scrub land. Spiny forests in the south are rapidly giving way to "cactus scrub" as indigenous vegetation is cut and burned for subsistence charcoal production. Viewed from above, Madagascar's rivers look as if they are bleeding the country to death as soil is eroded away from the central highlands.
