Older adults are saving threatened species "one stone" at a time.
Be inspired at home, in your community, and online
The person who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones. Confucious
Welcome to Conservation For Seniors, a website designed to bring together information and ideas to encourage and inspire older adults in personal conservation action to save threatened species. It is not meant to include ALL information about conservation and saving species, merely what may be of interest to you the reader. Anything left off the site can still be inspirational. If you have conservation-oriented information you think would benefit from being added so that others are inspired, please scroll down to the bottom left of this page and send in the information. Then, look for it under the section “Lion’s Share of Inspiration." Photos, videos, articles, and more are all welcomed.
But why a website for just older adults? Much of the literature shows efforts made to encourage children and youth to engage in personal conservation action but little exist that are created specifically for older adults No such website has ideas to inspire and respond to the issue facing our world today...27,000+ animal species are threatened to become extinct. A sobering number but one that can be greatly decreased by making simple changes at home and in the community. Confucius once said, "The person who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones." All it takes is one small stone, one simple change by an older adult, to move that mountain.
Here is the website to inspire that change!
