WPC: Thankful

This week’s Photo Challenge is Thankful.

 

Last week, I read about Miranda Gibson from Zeebra Designs & Destinations‘ post. I am so thankful for this young woman’s action of protesting a forest.

The ObserverTree is a platform situated 60 m(197 feet) above the ground in an old-growth Eucalyptus tree, in the heart of Tasmania’s southern forests. On the 14th of December 2011 conservationist Miranda Gibson climbed a rope to the top of the tree and vowed to stay untill the forest is protected. Miranda’s upper canopy home is a tree under imminent threat, in a forest due to be logged any day now.”  — the Observertree. org.

To view the video and read about the incredible story of how and why Miranda protects the forest, click here.

  9. I loved your post and Miranda’s site. I’m thankful that you posted about it. I did a post a while back about the giant redwoods, which speaks to the grandeur of the old growth trees. Might be worth a visit if you are interested at http://travelsandtrifles.wordpress.com/2012/08/01/the-california-redwoods/
