We sit at a critical juncture in Earth’s history, a time when the forces of greed and destruction threaten our environment’s very existence, and therefore our own. Our only hope is that people around the world stand up for the environments and places that they hold dear.
Already countless acts of love have preserved precious woodlands and water catchments, saved iconic landscapes, halted extractive development in irreplaceable ecosystems. Love is the most powerful of human emotions, and can be an important driver of positive change. Indeed, it is the reason Samara is where it is today.
Love will save this place
So this year, as you toast your loved one, reflect on the time you have spent together in Nature and the places you love. Take time to walk in your local forest, visit your nearby beach, breathe in the clean air of the countryside.
Or travel further afield to a rejuvenated wilderness like Samara, plant a Spekboom to support our conservation efforts, salute the stars from our star bed, and help us conserve this magical landscape for posterity.
