learn from First Nations

The claim that the forest industry has developed ‘sustainable forestry’ is ignorant in the extreme.
We have not yet been on this land for the life cycle of a eucalyptus tree!
The First Australians who have lived in harmony with Aussie forests for many generations did so by nurturing them and harvesting from them for food, medicines and tools.
In contrast we harvest the forests!
First Peoples saw the forests and all of nature as something like a church.
Our society looks at nature as a magical bottomless opportunity for economic exploitation.
Our modern society needs to get smarter and learn from the values underlying First Nations’ societies.
