There are so many ways to help the environment and wildlife - collective activism is most important!We loved this reminder from Brenna Quinlan about the power of collective action and individual participation 🌏 🌿 ✊
As Quinlan notes: "No single person is going to turn around climate change or bring about social justice. That burden doesn't rest on your shoulders alone. Instead, it is shared by a global movement of inspired and active people, projects and communities. Together we save forests, lobby for climate policy, strengthen local food networks and support the next generation. So figure out what makes you come alive, and put that good energy towards the cause. You do your bit while I do mine, and together we can achieve more than either of us could alone." ...

Wake the tiger in yourself!
A photograph of a rare Siberian tigress hugging an ancient Manchurian fir in the Russian Far East has won the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020 competition.
The next planting is in Sulby Glen on January 17th (Sunday) from 10.30 am. ... See MoreSee Less

Falk Ishere my trees will probably be that big when I get home - and I'll probably do exactly like that tiger when I finally see them! 🙂 🌲🌲🌲
Amazonian Tree with human sized leaves is finally classified as a new species:
Scientists have known about this extremely rare tree for decades, but did not have any genetic material to describe it. In 2005 a couple of botanists collected seeds from a tree in Jamari National Forest, a ancient tropical forest in the Amazon. They took the seeds and planted them and waited for one to flower. Thirteen years later one of the trees flowered and bore fruit, giving the genetic material necessary to name the new species. Coccoloba gigantifolia ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you Rhodes for running 2020km for us in 2020, raising funds to plant nearly 700 trees!
That's the same distance as sea terminal-Mount Murray every single day of the year.
Hope your christmas is as normal as ours! 😉 ... See MoreSee Less

270 trees comprising oak, hazel, hawthorn, field maple, Rowan, whitebeam, wild cherry, native alder, talian alder, downy birch, sycamore, grey willow and lodgepole pine were planted by 14 determined volunteers at Little London yesterday.
With festive preperations ahead, the last planting just before christmas is always the lowest attended so it was splendid to still have so much help. We are thinking about a 'christmas tree star' badge.🎅🎄🌟🎖 ... See MoreSee Less

Last planting of the year this Sunday! 270 native saplings are longing for a nice spot to live in 'Little London' - yes, that's an actual name of a village, possibly inspired by New York, which is not like the real York.
Rumours have it that cake and mince pies are going to be eaten at our usual tea and coffee round afterwards.
Everyone is welcome to join our final planting of the season - our total number of trees planted this year is going to be aired shortly afterwards!
Cronk-Ny-Fessag in Little London is in the lane on left as one starts driving down to go down slope to Little London white house.
Difficulty will be easy
Our flag usually points out the parking area and there will be a sign around to show the way to the planting site.
A map is attached underneath. For navigation you can use the following link. goo.gl/maps/DqAQ1XZrq9vsdLcU9
The plantings tend to last for two or three hours and we share coffee and tea afterwards. All you need to bring is dirt proof and warm clothing, including shoes. If you can bring garden gloves, a flask of hot water and a cup for coffee. ... See MoreSee Less
Edited it to 270 trees instead of the 170 previously mentioned. So we could use a few more people giving the gift of their time to this island. 🎄🧨🎀 Santa hats are optional
