This trip hammered home the importance of Sustainability. This area was once a major Cacao producer (total mono-culture) and a fungus wiped out the crop. Now the battle concerns the balance between small Eco-tourism / small land owners and large plantations of Bananas/ and Large Hotels.
We saw the endangered Great Green Macaw thanks to the efforts of the ARA Project -- a small staff and volunteers bring these birds back to the wild.
On this Earth Day #48 it is more important than ever before to Change the Way we live. We need to reflect daily on our actions. "How can I curb CLIMATE CHANGE?" Every small act we make is so important!
All of these beautiful organisms deserve to survive.
