Chapter 8: Jaanvar Bhi Insaan Hein
Climate change, overpopulation and over-consumption of the Earth’s natural resources affect not just human beings but the animal kingdom also. On an average 137 species of animals are going extinct every day due to deforestation – a staggering figure when one considers that these are species that have evolved over millennia to survive! If we like to imagine ourselves being ‘the pinnacle of creation’, then it is high time we accept our responsibility towards Mother Earth and all other species that populate her. Join the next session of the Maa Dharti Project with three eminent speakers that have a very special relationship with the Earth and the animal kingdom!
Tofiq Pasha Mooraj – the spearhead and mentor of the Maa Dharti Project has 30 years of experience in horticulture, floriculture, landscaping, tree-plantation, food development, water management and irrigation.
