This weekend, i'll be off to PWTC to attend the talks/seminars at MIDE expo. So ok, what's so special about it. Reason #1: It relates to my work at Wild Asia ; Reason #2: I've been crazy over marine conservation especially turtle and new ones *seahorse and * coral reef and Reason #3: I've always wanted to pick up scuba diving *still can't because of $$.
Come back to my topic, Today was my first day to attend the talks when i was in MIDE expo. So what happened was i was late for one of the talks organized by WWF Semporna. Well i was late for 10 minutes and this really thanks to KTM.
Anyway, thank god i didn't miss the best part. During the talk given by Daniel (WWF Semporna Team Leader), he told us that he would love to share a prophecy which he'll never forget. Seriously, i've to admit that I've never heard such a *WOW* prophecy in my entire life. I really have to admit this is *so far* the best prophecy I've ever heard.
Want to know why i'm so in love and would love to share this prophecy to everyone.
Read and understand:
Indian Creek Prophecy
"Only after :
the last tree that has been cut
the last fish that has been caught
the last river that has been poisoned
then will we realised that money cannot be eaten"
Don't you think this is so true with our "tidak apa apa" attitude to the environment?
I wonder what will happen to our mother nature in future. What i know is it won't be fair to our children which they don't get to SEE with their own eyes of how wonderful is forest, coral reefs, indigenous animals..and so forth.
Recent years, There are a lot of big hoo-haa about environmental issues in our country but not many actions have been taken. People pushing/finding faults and put the blame on each other like as if by this method can solve a lot of environmental issues.
What's wrong to stand up and help to give tender, loving and care to the environment? What's wrong to help the country to protect/conserve the national treasures? Why there are still people that love to take these for granted? Why can't they use these extra time and energy to think how to solve rather pint point at each other?
I guess a lot of people still think that the environment in our country or in world still perfectly alright. I guess this is the time to slap everyone and ask everyone to wake up (how i wish there is a HUGE alarm clock to wake up everyone's brains).
From the last sentence of the prophecy, Money can't buy or do everything. National treasures given by the god cannot be buy/purchase/sell/rent.Guess we still haven't realise the importance of all these natural resources which we have.
Message to everyone:
We, human being are here to conserve and protect and help to improve the environment condition in our country. We're here not to destroy or reduce them. Try to understand and think of ways to keep our environment in healthy condition.
A healthy environment benefits to all living creatures including US (symbiosis relationship).
*Thanks to team leader from WWF Semporna for giving this great opportunity to know and understand this prophecy and to MIDE Expo too because get to meet all the conservationist and eco- and licensed divers*
