A Strand in the Web. Torngat Mountains National Park.

Episode 123,   Jan 16, 05:00 AM

 “Whatever happens to the beasts also happens to man. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the children of the earth.” Those words spoken by Chief Seattle centuries ago merely echoed what his people knew for a time immemorable, and what modern science is now proving – we are not separate from the environment, we are of it. Our actions, or inactions, have long lasting ripple effects on everything around us, and while we may not see the results in our lifetimes, they are becoming apparent in places like the Arctic, where the consequences of our actions are rearing their heads in a fight for survival.

We love our National Parks and we know you do too but when you're out there, remember to enjoy the view but watch your back.
