I personally am not a fan of Zoo's. ( Unless you mean ZF ...)
Ugly abominations of nature.
What we really need to do is fence of half the planet and repopulate.
A wild zone such as in Brave new world.
This of course is going to annoy a huge group of people but as far as can
see this is tough biscuits. We have had enough time to sort out some kind
of living within our means parallel with nature and we have fluffed it very badly.
Slamming the brakes on and trying to solve the issues we have caused so far
is the least we can do, and yet, we argue about it instead of doing it.
Big business silences the little voices and lobbies for more mining, digging, pipelines etc.
And the band plays on.
Raaid. Old chap. Go and plant some trees. : - )
All you need to do is find a group that is doing this kind of thing and turn up at the right time
at the pick up spot. Take some lunch and a sun hat. They will give you a spade and some saplings.
And your never know there maybe some maidens in long flowery dresses and stout shoes who
like the cut of your gib. I am pretty sure they do free cups of tea as well.
Sorry for being overly talkative but it's been ages since I last wrote anything and
heck I just can't stop. First cup of coffee of the day.
Still keen to see how you are going with your collage. Go large!
