"I learned about the beautiful connection between animals and the environment from a member of the Cherokee tribe. Studying other Indigenous cultures inspired me to connect with and teach others to understand and save our planet. All species, including humans, are intimately interconnected and interrelated in this magnificent matrix of life, which makes our existence possible. The Amazon rainforest, being the Lungs of Mother Earth, is necessary for our very survival. We must all humbly learn to honor and to teach our connections with the plants, the animals, and the magic of our planet with others not only to protect the environment but to save our own species."
