The Earth's natural environment
is an enormous, prolific garden
full of many and varied natural resources
available for man's use and enjoyment.
In exchange, he must tend and care for it
in order to ensure its health and productivity.
The natural environment is man's environment.
Natural forest ecosystems,
as with all other natural ecosystems,
must be protected intact
in order to enable life on this Planet.
We are Earthlings and must think of our planet
Earth, first, above all other considerations,
if we expect to continue life here in perpetuity.
People are not the only living things
on this beautiful blue-green orb.
Our forest alone is overflowing with an incredible
diversity and quantity of lifeforms.
We cannot continue to pillage
the natural environment,
as if tomorrow did not matter.
We must learn to take only what is necessary
and protect the remainder
so that it can regenerate
to provide a sustainable supply
for the future.
