Indeed. For me, the idea of any future at all for wilderness seems more and more a pipe dream. No matter which way I look at it, I can see no way to justify ever bringing children into a world such as this; much as I love children, I think it best that I never have any.
<<Sadly for many or even most Nature is only good when things are SAFE and PRETTY.
Don't I know it! In this lawyer-infested country (USA), it seems people have made Safety the ultimate aspiration -- never mind that they are quashing the human spirit in the process.
<<2. Do you have experience to guide, lead, or share leadership or contribute
skills e.g. languages, filming, sound recording, first aid, cooking etc.?
I can get by in Spanish, have training in Wildreness First Aid, and understand navigation by map and compass.
<<3. WHO would like to be part of a team sensitive to each other?
4. WOULD four weeks be optimum?
I would love to join up, but am too poor to contribute much to the funding. Four weeks would be plenty, PROVIDED all necessary arrangements were made in advance.
<<5. Should we explore and collect for team members or also for others who
can't come but need our efforts on their behalf?
Give us a list, we'll do what we can.
