Field Report
Field reports, experiences, news and interviews from around the world coming soon…

“I hope that whoever sees this gets the message that these things don’t happen on their own.
Everybody has to get out of bed every day and do something meaningful that has nothing to do with themselves, to protect those things you love. You have to jump into the fray, you have to get really serious about spending or investing a portion of your life, doing something that sees you becoming an activist, a defender, raising an army, to protect the natural world.
You have to be inspired by people, but you also have to just want it on your own…”
