This is good for all, since there are so few rainforests and the people who know the foods and medicines in this particu;ar forest.
Where are the petitions -- to get started now -- if that would help. Letters do well. Many people will sign petitions.

Great news for these wonderful people.

Wherever you go there once was a forest.
Plant & protect Danny's trees for life.

Wish our courts would be so BOLD and block Shell from the arctic --- although I have heard there are some Natives there who actually support it......
