In Respect of Rainforests

Woohoo! First, a big hug of thanks goes out to Danita Delimont for her representation of several images from my travel stock collection, including this one:

Here’s what’s special about this image: It will be featured in a 16-month calendar for 2010, for the 31-day month of May, so you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy it along other great images of the earth’s many RAINFORESTS. Though it won’t ship until July 2009, when it will be available at retailers all over, you can still preview it on the publisher’s website. Here’s the link, where you’ll notice the calendar page with my image featured as the insert page promo.

Graphique de France: RAINFORESTS 2010

I love that this calendar is multi-lingual, tres bien! Que bueno esta! Zehr gut!

And I love even more that it is ECO-FRIENDLY, using soy based inks and recyclable paper!

But perhaps the reason I most love this calendar is that it raises awareness and respect for an integral part of our beautiful living planet, the rainforests. And that means a great deal to me. The joy of making a small difference in this world by capturing the beauty of one such rainforest at Iguazu – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – well, that only makes me want to do more.

And I’m about to do just that. Later this week I am heading to South America once again, this time to the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil. And I will do more! And I’ll share it all with you here at Mira Terra Travels, so please stay tuned, follow, bookmark, subscribe, or just check back weekly. More to come!

Meanwhile, here are links to some pretty great websites on the matter:

Rainforest Alliance

Rainforest Foundation US

If you know of and would like to add others, please post links in comments, and thank you!
