Opportunities in your neighborhood
- Join us in supporting the work of Survival International:
"Survival is an international organization supporting tribal peoples worldwide, and works for their rights in three complementary ways: education, advocacy and campaigns. Survival also offers tribal people themselves a platform to address the world, and works closely with local indigenous organizations. Survival's focus is on tribal peoples who have the most to lose, usually those most recently in contact with the industrial world.
Survival's educational programs set out to demolish the myth that tribal peoples are relics, destined to perish through 'progress', while at the same time promoting respect for their cultures and explaining the contemporary relevance of their way of life.
Survival runs worldwide campaigns to fight for tribal peoples. These campaigns are not only directed toward governments, but multinational corporations, banks, extremist missionaries, guerrilla armies, narrow minded conservationists or anyone else who violates tribal peoples' rights."
- Liberate your lawn! Are you tired of looking at monotonous lawn after lawn after lawn? Are you sick of having to mow and trim? Do you wish you could do your part to help the Earth Mother be as she once was? Both the National Wildlife Federation and Windstar Wildlife Institute have programs to help you transform your lawn into a mini natural area -- and have it be acceptable to your neighbors and the civil authorities! NWF's program is called Backyard Wildlife Habitat, and Certified Wildlife Habitat is Windstar's. Both offer technical assistance and, once your lawn qualifies, you receive signed certification and an attractive sign that will educate passersby and inform them of your certification.
