‘The trees in the park know nothing about the etiquette manual that guides the old-growth forest…. Thanks to the generous amount of sunlight that reaches the ground, [they] grow thick side branches that later increase in girth so much that the image they bring to mind is that of doped-up body builders.’ The Hidden Life Of Trees, 172.

‘Over the past 20 years, approximately 90 per cent of the monarch butterflies that migrate between Mexico and Canada have disappeared. In the 1990s, about one billion individual butterflies made the epic, multi-generational trek from Canada to Mexico. By 2013 the population had plummeted to 35 million. After a couple of years of modest improvement, the monarch population dropped by 22 million again last year.’
