Free Press interviews Burnham about a rainforest vacation
Wednesday, May 16, 2012
The Detroit Free Press interviewed Professor Robyn Burnham in a travel article about Yasuni National Park in Ecuador that appeared May 14, 2012. Burnham’s quotes follow:
"Everyone on Earth should see the rain forest if they want to. It is precious; it is our lifeline to survival. Ecotourism may help if it can be strictly controlled."
"If everyone understood our connection to it at an organic level, we might be more willing as humans to sacrifice our comfort to save other species."
