Thanks Jonathon,

Well well, USA doing the right thing for a change. I love the forests myself and believe there's much spiritual healing power in forests alike. Follow the path of Native Americans who sit with trees to ask for knowledge. Native Americans were once called savages, yet it was the Westernized society who judged this truly peaceful society of peoples. If humankind treats forests with the utmost respect, they too shall receive.

Quite right, Jeff. We could learn so much from the natives of this land. Live with it and within it...Don't use and abuse it. Thanks very much for this , Jonathon. Fantastic news.

Why don't we work on everything wilderness - what we are doing is spending large amount of time, money and effort to save dwindling wilderness.

Practicing family planning will cause wilderness to increase, with no time, money or effort.

This is just awesome. If I could, I'd pack up and move there. And I still think that if we had embraced Native Americans instead of trying to exterminate them, they would have long ago found cures for cancer, AIDS, and all viruses! Uplifting, Jonathon
