This week, a sideways skip from bonsai…nonetheless about connecting with nature, defending and nurturing it as we do in bonsai, however another way.
That is about an Indiegogo marketing campaign I simply launched.
Final month I went on a 2-week birding journey to Ecuador. I noticed 327 species on this journey—spectacular birds!—nevertheless it was the story of a Quijos Nation household that caught with me.
In my final week I frolicked with Yacu, a Quijos birding information. He was coaching his boys to be birding guides. His imaginative and prescient: to assist indigenous households create sustainable revenue with out the stress to promote their lands for deforestation or gold mining.
Factor is, his youngsters didn’t have binoculars.
I discovered Yacu has greater goals. He wished to coach a complete of 10 Quijos Nation youngsters to be chook guides.
They didn’t have binoculars both.
The total story is on this Indiegogo marketing campaign, the place you’ll discover a hyperlink to donate and assist these younger guides get a great begin with binoculars!
And on behalf of Yacu and his household, thanks!!
