Heavenly Messenger: How One Small Siberian Crane Transformed Taiwan (Formosa), Part 3 of 4

When I look back at this story again today, I realize it's not just about the little crane's amazing journey, but about mine as well. It was a turning point in my life. Because of this little crane, I had the chance to see through his eyes. I went to his habitat, the place to spend the winter, and the place where he was born. I visited Siberia, Poyang Lake, and Momoge. I learned about the harsh environment of his habitat. It's very difficult.

The little crane is really intelligent. When I met him at the farm, he stood on the ridge and called "jiu jiu-jiu," "jiu jiu-jiu." One "Jiu" and then two more. He would call like that. How strange! He's very intelligent and sensitive. When the lotus flowers are blossoming, there are many tourists. The little crane wanted to peck at people all the time. But when I went to him and scolded him, he did somewhere else. It's true. This little crane is like a person and understands people.

Creative Transformations of Plastic Waste

Plastic is very inexpensive, easy to produce, light, and can be used in an incredible amount of ways. However, with all these benefits, there are enormous costs. About half of all plastic is used just one time and then discarded. Our beautiful seas are now an immense rubbish bin that no one empties. To degrade and the pervasive plastic shopping bag can take 10 to 1000 years to decompose. Many brilliant individuals, organizations, and companies around the world care deeply about this issue and are working to take a portion of the unending flow of plastic waste and give it new life.

Veganic Farming with Leo Sanchez, Part 1 of 2

An organic farm is using non-conventional practices, having multiple crops, that aren’t exactly one variety. We basically encompass everything that is organic agriculture. So, we apply organic practices. We make sure that our land is suitable for organic production, but we do not use any animal byproducts, so no animal fertilizers, no fish emulsion, no cow meal, no feather meal, no herbicides or pesticides, it’s being in complete compliance with nature. Rather than harming nature, we try to find a symbiotic relationship with nature, working with the environment around us, rather than degrading it.

Algae: Earth’s Most Essential Organisms

Algae are among the most important organisms on Earth as they produce 50% to 85% of the planet's oxygen. Trees perform this function as well, but because our beautiful world is made up of much more water than land, aquatic plants such as algae produce most of the global oxygen supply, a vital life source for all beings. Microalgae, more commonly known as phytoplankton, are found in both the benthic (sea floor) and littoral zones of oceans and rivers. As photosynthetic organisms, these plants play key roles in the ecosystems of oceans and are the basis of the marine food chain.

COP- 24 - World Leaders Call for a Sustainable Planet, Part 2 of 2

According to scientists, livestock raising is responsible for approximately 51% of all greenhouse gas emissions. Thus, many scientists recommend adoption of a vegan diet as the most efficient and effective way to reduce such emissions. We need to balance how we produce, how we consume, and meat is one of the factors in the emission of greenhouse gases. And I think one of the most important aspects of being vegan is you’re going to try to save the world. Vegan is a way of life.

Microorganisms are small living beings which are commonly found in the air and the soil. They are even in our bodies. The medical profession has found that, for example, in cases of people with gastrointestinal tract diseases, who cannot use antibiotics, they will take the microorganisms from people who have strong intestines, people who eat vegan, to replace it in the same area of the intestine of people who have infectious diseases. The important thing is, microorganisms decompose plant remains, animal remains, and they decompose organic matter to become humus, to become fertilizer. This is the role of the microorganisms. The free training camps regularly organized by Dr. Klajon, many organic farmers now carry out their farming practices in a way that respects Buddhist principles.
