Information and guidance is essential in our personal and collective work to protect and sustain nature.

We need both quality and quantity of accomplishment in our work to reconcile human society and wild nature—TheSky and Earth Touched Me beautifully points us in that direction. (Vance G. Martin, President, The WILD Foundation October 2013)
