The whole of science, and one is tempted to think the whole of the life of any thinking man, is trying to come to terms with the relationship between yourself and the natural world. Why are you here, and how do you fit in, and what's it all about.
I believe that conservation education is all about being excited about something. Seeing passion and enthusiasm helps push an educational message.
People must feel that the natural world is important and valuable and beautiful and wonderful and an amazement and a pleasure. The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see a monkey except in a picture book?
People are not going to care about animal conservation unless they think that animals are worthwhile.
At Monkeyland in Plettenberg Bay you've got the lemurs and monkeys leaping through the trees overhead. It's a chance to remember what the world can really be like.
The most important environmental issue is one that is rarely mentioned, and that is the lack of a conservation ethic in our culture.
Environmentalism opposes reckless innovation and makes conservation the central order of business.
I believe our biggest issue is the same biggest issue that the whole world is facing, and that's habitat destruction.
