Earth is a living world and man is simply a small, but disproportionally destructive, part of it. Unless we can adapt ourselves and live in harmony within our environment, the destruction of his natural heritage will demean his material achievements. (Sir Peter Scott, July 1986)
In safeguarding and conserving our environment, education is of prime importance. Environmental awareness by the general public and the cultivation of a taste in the natural world must be given high priority: the more people who learn and understand the beauty and wonder of nature, the more people there will be who wish to protect nature rather than destroy it. It is a sad fact of life that those who have the power to control the fate of the living world, are often the least informed about it. The tropical regions of the world like S.E. Asia are especially in need of these, since they are the areas which contain the greatest wealth of wildlife and stand to benefit most by having a public which is fully aware of the importance of conserving its natural heritage.
