Brazilian photographer by the name of Sebastião Salgado, returned to his homeland in the state of Minas Gerais, to relish, rejoice the beauty of mother nature which was once a green kingdom of heaven but was extremely upset after it was reduced to a barren land. It was when he made up his mind to transform his hometown green again.
With the strong support of his wife, Lélia Deluiz Wanick Salgado, he sprung into action to do the unthinkable.
While the greedy humans are busy destroying mother nature at one end, this couple had a vision to plant as many saplings as possible. They both kept on working towards their mission as they were determined to start Instituto Terra, a community non-profit and non-governmental organisation.
They have so much love for the mother nature as they expressed it by planting as many as 4 million saplings, fetched marvellous results. Dry patches of land are now turned into green forest.
Now the beautiful living species like the fish, animals and insects have now returned to the area. Springs of water, some of the animal species that were at the full risk of extinction have found a new home. Thanks to this lovely couple. Let’s do hope, more people will get inspired by this Brazilian couple to make the world green.
Trees are the best living creatures on the planet because it gives the necessary oxygen to the humans, animals and other living species.
With a steady decline of trees due to the infamous deforestation activities, the planet is losing its core part of trees. Without trees, life on earth is unimaginable and planting trees should be our main motive.
