I am a biologist who also likes to plant and hug trees! I study mangroves at the moment, but live with rainforest trees about. I also work at forest regeneration.
Lots of birds and bees and things like that around too. Sometimes a koala in the trees, a goanna or a wallaby wanders by.
I seem to still be idealistic and passionate. Not just about trees, but social justice, too. I am grieved by the world now, but am trying to be equanimical as getting stressed helps no one and is a barrier to getting things done!
Happy Birthday Nick! I hope you have a fabulous birthday and this year brings you all the wonderful things you are hoping for (completion of thesis maybe?!) hugs and best wishes from a fellow tree-hugger Sarina
