The contribution made by us as indigenous peoples to the conservation and preservation of nature's bio-diversity is important.
Thankfully, western scientists are now recognising how traditional peoples use forest preservation skills in helping to protect our forests. We have proven that it is possible to live without destroying our forests and that the environment provides everything we need to make life comfortable.
Today, our work needs to be understood, recognised and credited. We are important partners in sustaining our world's important natural resources.
The information on this site is provided by Moraro indigenous conservationists which is 100% controlled by indigenous people. Moraro protected forest is given as a prime example that traditional conservation done by traditional indigenous people works.
Rainforests have been saved for centuries by indigenous intelligence developed by its peoples; be it language, sky reading, rainforest medicine, utility crafts or forestry.
With new challenges, we still believe that our forests can continue if we use traditional techniques without mass exploitation.
Changes such as climate change and population growth are now affecting our forests.
We believe that everyone needs to understand how we have preserved our forests and support us in our endeavours to continue doing so.
Honor the sacred. Honor the Earth, our Mother. Honor the Elders. Honor all with whom we share the Earth:- Four-leggeds, two-leggeds, winged ones, Swimmers, crawlers, plant and rock people.
Walk in balance and beauty.
~ Native American Elder ~
Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient Native American Proverb ~
Nature gives us spirit
We stand with our Indigenous Relatives of Turtle Island (North America) in their effort to protect their waters.
