"Sometimes you are able to hear the roar of a jaguar or see footprints
in the rain forest. At that time, I know that all our little efforts
are valuable, and feel confident and optimistic about the future of
our nature. We have inherited the most diverse community of living
creatures that has ever occupied our planet. Now, to fulfill the responsibility
we have toward coming generations, that they would be able to use,
protect, and appreciate all of these wonders and gifts of the nature,
we must try to improve the situation we are currently facing. We have
a responsibility toward our nature, toward our endangered and threatened
world and toward ourselves.
There is a time in the life of one human being, when all that it
is inside his mind, his soul, and his heart is reflected in his eyes
and in his attitude to save that image forever. At that particular
moment, the human being is communing with nature."
