Thank you Jim! Yes, I also think it's unfair that future generations may not get to experience nature the way they could have. I always regret not having had a chance to see the Dodo. I want to try my best to protect the remaining endemic flora and fauna in Mauritius for future generations to see. I plan to engage children and teenagers in particular in this project so they can understand the importance of protecting native forests.
