Valuable Relationships

Thanks to the World Wildlife Fund for sharing this photo.  It comes with a plea to support their efforts to save Virunga, Africa’s oldest national park, covering over 3000 square miles.  It is now threatened by Soco International, which intends to commence oil exploration and drilling in the park.  These gorillas are just one of many species whose habitat is threatened.

The park has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site for over thirty years and the Democratic Republic of the Congo does have laws in place to protect the area.  The connection between wildlife and humans means that they are also threatened by oil exploration.  Drinkable water, food from fishing and renewable energy are all threatened.  WWF calls for Soco to cease its attempt at exploration and exhorts the DRC to enforce its protective laws.    When we cease to respect and support our natural resources and fellow creatures, everyone loses.

Relationships between humans are also important and can be threatened by many things, some as simple as the passage of time. I was interested to find that there are now online classes to learn how to maintain healthy, passionate and pleasurable intimate relationships. With an impressive array of doctor, counselors and relationship advisors, the free trials seems well worth checking out, if you value your important relationships.
