She's Alive - Ecology in Art (Main Street)

This video made me uncomfortable. At first, because it seemed so 'contrived' to make its point, but then as I watched,all the more uncomfortable because the point was so well taken, and I was ashamed. And before seeing this, I didn't realize how Dian Fossey had died. Her dedicated work with gorillas made her one of my heroes in my early years.

Be sure and watch it full screen!

This is a non-commercial attempt to highlight the fact that world leaders, irresponsible corporates and mindless 'consumers' are combining to destroy life on earth. It is dedicated to all who died fighting for the planet and those whose lives are on the line today. The cut was put together by Vivek Chauhan, a young film maker, together with naturalists working with the Sanctuary Asia network (www.sanctuaryasia.com).

Content credit: The principal source for the footage was Yann Arthus-Bertrand's incredible film HOME http://www.homethemovie.org/. The music was by Armand Amar.

"When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate on the preservation of the future." – Gorillas in the Mist
