Izilwane--Voices for Biodiversity
April 2, 2011
I am grateful to the volunteers who bring this "ezine" to me. I wish it were mandatory reading for all schools for IZILWANE is a way to help people reconnect with nature. Our world is in a difficult place and IZILWANE has articles that help us see our interrelatedness with all living things and the importance of learning to live with all living things. Reading this "ezine" has strengthened my resolve to live in ways that help the environment. I am using my own bag and bottles when shopping, use cloth garbage bags that I can wash after emptying them, planting a garden organically, buying all organic produce. Now I am trying to buy a car that gets better gas mileage. I am planting more plants that attract animals and birds also. IZILWANE has strengthened my resolve to talk to the local stores about stopping using plastic bags which I will be discussing with the local ecology board this week.

I've seen what this organization has written about in watching my daughter's bees struggle through last year and
not seeing as many bears and deer on our land last year.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Try to help the world see that overpopulation is a huge problem at this time. The more people means less room for animals and birds. The more people means more pollution and that kills other plants, animals, birds, and insects. Overpopulation is our biggest problem. Also need to get people back to nature and life.
