    In dwelling, live close to the ground.

    In thinking, keep to the simple.

    In conflict, be fair and generous.

    In governing, don’t try to control.

    In work, do what you enjoy.

    In family life, be completely present.

    sea turtles are one of the planet’s oldest species, roaming the oceans for around one hundred million years. but the twenty first century has seen their numbers decline by up to seven percent a year, largely as a result of commercial fishing nets which ensnare the turtles as bycatch.

    but loggerheads, already an endangered species, face an ongoing threat to their coveted nesting sites to beach developers looking to draw in tourists. conservations have fought for decades to keep iztuzu beach free from development, though the licence to run it has recently been sold to property developers who threaten to change that
