It is always very sad indeed to lose an intelligent activist who should have had many more years of good work ahead of her.

I agree, her death is a loss for the planet, as well as all who cared for her. Hopefully she has ignited others like her to carry the ideals, ideas and principles with similar strength and endurance. I too, wonder about the circumstances of her death.

That's a terrible loss. There aren't enough people like her who care about the planet and it's animals.

This is so sad. Folks, Mexico has hundreds of miles of
beautiful beaches, but you have to be cautious. Two
of our beach areas here in Mazatlan are notorious for
their bad "rip tides." This is a dangerous undertow.
Please be careful.

Re:video -- I didn't know that about Disney etc and paper from rainforests.

We should carry forward her legacy. "Re-embedding the economy within the limits of the ecosystem" -- agree.

Why do people that really do something for the planet have to die so young! Such a shame.
