The Quality of LifeLast Updated on 2016-10-29 20:35:27So long as we continue to breathe life goes on.

Lion Guardians - Coexistence between people and lions (Maa w/subtitles) Last Updated on 2015-03-24 09:14:20Published on Aug 2, 2013
The Lion Guardians monitor lion movements, warn pastoralist when lions are in the area, recover lost livestock, reinforce livestock corrals and intervene to stop lion hunting parties.

Our mission is to promote sustainable coexistence between people and lions using cultural values, community participation and science.
Just over 60 years ago there were estimated to be more than half a million lions in Africa. Today fewer than 30,000 remain.
The Lion Guardians program was created to help... More »

It has been a Goldilocks geological era. The last 11,700 years have not been too hot, or too cold, too wet or too dry and have witnessed an earth well provided with freshwater and a great array of biomes and life. They have provided almost a planetary ceasefire after a long history of abrupt swings between very much more hostile hot and cold conditions.
So it is not surprising that it has been in the Holocene (the term comes from the Greek words for "whole" and "new") that human civilisation was born, grew and spread. We entered it as a few hunter-gatherers, but have now grown so dominant that scientists believe that we are ourselves bringing the Goldilocks era to an end, with unknown –... More »
