Two good friends of mine have been working on an excellent project for the past few years, and they need some financial help taking it to the next level! For those of you who may be hearing about Strongest Hearts for the first time, SH is a web series that profiles professional vegan athletes showing the world that anyone can live a healthy life on a plant based diet. They have a lot of episodes lined up to share but they need a little help with production to keep up with the demand. They have launched this kickstarter so folks like you could help out this awesome project!
A couple of months ago I had the privilege to travel to Tasmania and camp in the beautiful old growth forest with forest defense activist Miranda Gibson. Miranda told me some wonderful inspiring stories, and also let me know about the current threats to Tasmania’s forests. Please give it a watch!
Miranda Gibson has devoted years of her life to defending Tasmania’s old growth forests…
Holding Australia’s record for longest tree sit, Miranda is no stranger to the long haul of tenacious grassroots campaigns for ecodefence. Miranda’s Observer Tree sit lasted 449 days and her six and a half years working on the Florentine Forest blockade has awarded World Heritage Protection status for the otherwise doomed Florentine eucalyptus stand.
Miranda is apprehensive of the word “victory” as she sees her struggle as an ever-poised and vigilant stance against creeping, rapacious development.
Despite Miranda’s laundry list of victories for the forests of Tasmania, trees are Still Falling, and these forests need your help.
