" Naturam expellas furca, tamen usque recurret "
( If you drive out nature with a pitchfork, she will soon find a way back)
Horace (65-8 BC)
"Creatures who have traveled with us through the ages are now apparently doomed, as their habitat - and the old, old habitat of humans - falls before the slow-motion explosion of expanding world economies"
Gary Snyder (1990)
"We live in a kind of dark age, craftily lit with synthetic light, so that no one can tell how dark it has really gotten. But our exiled spirits can tell..."
Martin Prechtel (1998)
"The clock is
no longer just ticking – it’s ringing an alarm, and if we don’t listen the
consequences for people and biodiversity will be catastrophic.”
Dr. Fred Boltz, Conservation International (December 2009
