Planting, December 2011, see house roof left
Two weeks ago it was time for the quarterly inspection of the Rio Sol Biological Corridor project. You guys remember because you helped us plant 35,000+ trees in a continuous corridor along the Sol River in partnership with different Maleku Tribe landowners. I went on October 3rd and got the most pleasant surprise. I described how I felt to my friend yesterday after he saw the before and after photos posted here. He remarked how awesome it was that I'm able to witness the change up close and personal and I told him that it was so awesome I could scream but people wouldn't understand. He answered that he would. :)
And hey, blessed people, I do scream from the hillside up there where it's only the birds, me and Jimmy looking down on this majestic natural ecosystem WE, you, me and everyone who supports LRFF, are responsible for creating.
We planted 14,000+ trees and over 110 species here from nurseries created and tended by 14 different Maleku families in the village of Tonjibe. It's full of birds and evidence everywhere of wildlife living there, in less than two years.

Thank you, because of you we KEEP PLANTING! LOOK AT THE RESULTS!
