Home » This is Our Obligation, not Our Human Passion

Conservation is a Human Obligation...

It is NOT Human Kind Activities based on Human Passion...NOR human care to save life of plants, animals, mater and land/sea-scape.

Conservation work around the world has been treated as human concern and human passion towards the nature, to save the natural environment from destruction, to save plants and animals from extinction, This frame of mind treat nature as a separate entity from human beings.
The Melanesian Way of Conservation says we are doing good or bad to ourselves, thenature is us.

What MELANESIANS SAY ABOUT CONSERVATION

We challenge misconception about conservation work that has misled humans in suicidal conservation activities and then propose a holistic and realistic framework of conservation work based on Melanesian experience.

We do not carry out conservation because we care for the nature, and our passion is towards the other beings.

We carry out our conservation work primarily because we are the nature, and that nature conservation is an existential action to preserve life on this planet Earth.

Biblically or religiously speaking, if we regard human beings created in accordance with God's own image, then we are supposed to be like God that creates, nurtures and sustains the universe.


Philosophically speaking, if humans are regarded as superior to other beings, then human should be responsible to act to preserve life on Earth to continue.

Spiritually speaking, conservation is about humans coming to realisation and act to save the life by first of all acknowledging and protecting the spirit hotspots of the world. 

We Say Conservation is about Us All...

Conservation is the preservation or efficient use of resources, or the conservation of various quantities under physical laws to safe lives from extinction.

Conservation mostly refer to Nature conservation, and we are the Nature.

Conservation is about Protecting Spirit Hotspots

Nature conservation is NOT about how many plants, animals and mater we humans want to save and protect, but it is about protecting the life-giver, life-source, about spirits that nurtures and sustains life.

We Say conservation is about Customary Laws

spirit-led conservation as being a philosophy of managing the life and living environment in a manner that respects and protects the source, nurturer and sustainber of life.
