Tenet No. 7 of A Conservationist Manifesto by Scott Russell Sanders

7.   “Lands, rivers, and oceans are healthy when they sustain the full range of ecological processes. Healthy wild land filters its own water and build its own soil, as in ancient forest or unplowed prairies. Agricultural land is healthy when it is gaining rather than losing fertility, and when it leaves room for other species in woodlots and hedgerows. Whether wild or cultivated, healthy lands and seas are diverse, resilient, and beautiful.”
