Chapter 3: Beauty and the Beast

May 26, 2015

The Biodiversity Imperative

Reconnection with the past, reclaiming the dragons, life is about being in relationship within ourselves, to others, and to other species, connection to our environment, we are a part of, not apart from, love, compassion and ultimately, kindness, maybe regeneration, reconnection come from not more science, not more information, but the time, place and space to be kinder to one another, to the planet and to the invaluable ‘others’ with whom we share our world.

Chapter Quote

“Because all of our current growth has been at the expense of persistent and continual ecological decline, the bigger we “grow,” the less space we leave for other creatures. Habitats become more fragmented, giving other species less and less freedom. And the bigger we “grow” through industrial globalization with economic systems no longer connected to place, to communities, the more homogenized our societies are becoming.” (p. 46)
