This post is a reblog from Anake Goodall about the Living Bridges of Meghalaya, India. The message was so inspiring and awesome, I just had to share it. Please read the post straight from Anake Goodall’s blog.
For the ones who don’t want leave the safe environment of Figments ;), you can also watch the BBC film (five minutes) here. And admire a photo of the living bridges. And with ‘living’, I really mean living! I urge you to hit the ‘play’ button, for you will be thrilled. The people of Meghalaya are working WITH nature, not against it, finding ingenious natural solutions. I am in awe.
In search of the origins of the photo I used for this post, I came upon Malini Rajesh’ blog. There you will find more intriguing information on these bridges!
From its origins (April 29th 1961) as a small group of committed wildlife enthusiasts, WWF has grown into one of the world’s largest and most respected independent conservation organizations – supported by 5 million people and active in over 100 countries on five continents.
Over this time, WWF’s focus has evolved from localized efforts in favour of single species and individual habitats to an ambitious strategy to preserve biodiversity and achieve sustainable development across the globe.
In Fifty years of achievements you can read about all WWF has accomplished.
And you just HAVE to watch this! Beautiful.
Two films I’d love to share with you all today:
The first one is about a humpback whale, caught in fishing nets. And after he has been freed, he gives his saviors an amazing show of gratitude. (Thank you Gil!)
Second, a song by The Piano Guys. I have shared their music before, but this one is for Christmas. With an endearing extra artist near the end.
