“As a scientist, I marvel at the fecundity and diversity of mature and old growth forests. As a human being, I am awestruck by them. Being in their presence is a spiritual experience. 

I love exchanging my breath with forests and soaking them in through every pore: the scent of wet rot, the spongy shadows, the thick silence.

For millennia, ancient forests have watched over us and sustained us. Can we do the same for them?”
