Bjelkeman's travel notes

Travels with the cloud in my pocket.

Large scale ecosystem restoration

My friend, John D. Liu, presenter in an incredibly impressive TV documentary from BBC World.

Degrading ecosystems is something which does not inspire hope. Lands nearly like moon landscapes, with nothing growing on them. They give you that feeling of despair, deep in the pit of your stomach. Until now.

For the last 15 years, my friend John Liu has been following the development on the Chinese loess plateau, where massive scale ecosystem restoration projects have been set in motion, to fantastic effect.

In this documentary John takes us to China, Ethiopia and to Rwanda, showing how degraded ecosystems are not a lost cause, but something we can actually fix. You must watch this video. Do it.
