Post the links to any campaigns you think are worthy. Please make them environmental in nature, about sustainabilty etc. The more people you can get to sign emails, petitions etc. means greater chance of winning your cause. Many of them take under 30 seconds to complete, so it's not a big waste of time, especially if you get thousands of "signatures" Keywords to use in your posts: Petition (est. time =30 seconds) e.g Online petition to save the great barrier reef! Email (est. time = 5-10 minutes) e.g Email your MP about coal! Website (est. time = hours) e.g. Campaign website to keep Trains on our Tracks (TOOT) etc.
This documentary based on the 2008 book by the same name is about people obsessed with collecting, preserving, and crossing rare fruit species and varieties. It's almost if one traded a Trichocereus or medical plant obsession strictly for tropical fruit. It's pretty fascinating really. The story features among others two mango conservators from the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden hunting down a white fleshed mango and maintaining their 600+ variety mango collection and a Hondouran scientist with a very involved (1 seed in 1000 banana clusters!) Cavendish banana breeding program. It's on youtube now: Part 1 - The Evolution of Desire [44:33] Part 2 - Defenders of Diversity [44:33]
