"What one (wo)man can do, all (wo)men can do!"

"By piecing together a complex ecological puzzle, biologist Willie Smits has found a way to re-grow clearcut rainforest in Borneo, saving local orangutans -- and creating a thrilling blueprint for restoring fragile ecosystems."

"Willie Smits has devoted his life to saving the forest habitat of orangutans, the "thinkers of the jungle." As towns, farms and wars encroach on native forests, Smits works to save what is left."

Here is an amazing look at how in relatively short order we can reclaim our lost paradise. In 3 years Smits efforts have accomplished: the return of 137 species of birds, lower air temperature 3 - 5 degrees celsius, rainfall up 25%, 11% more clouds and more--all balms for our ailing, overheating planet. Hear his talk on to learn more. The possibilities for relearning sustainability are all around us.
