Welcome to GaiaGuardians
For a long time Mother Earth was revered. We tended to her and celebrated her beauty. But as we moved from the land into cities, we literally lost sight of her. Trapped in our clusters of grey concrete boxes we forgot that we depend on her for the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. We’re finally recognising that we’re damaging Gaia beyond her ability to heal herself. The scale of the problem seems hopeless: we're inundated with stories of lost species, polluted rivers, animals brutally slaughtered, rising temperatures, forests burning, habitats lost and more. It's easy to despair. It's easy to ask "but what can one person do?" Yes, environmental destruction abounds but GaiaGuardians highlight the positive. We celebrate the good work being done to protect and restore Gaia. We share her beauty through our art and our writings, because we know if that beauty can move just one person to treat Gaia with more respect, we've had a good day.
