Welcome

Kirkus Best of 2013Corr Syl the Warrior#GarryRogersWelcome to my blog about nature conservation.  I call it #EcoSciFi because I use science fiction as well as non fiction to express the blog’s underlying nature conservation theme.  Check out my new novel to see how I’m doing.

The theme follows the ideal laid out by Aldo Leopold who believed wildlife and humans have equal rights in what Leopold called the land-community.

Aldo Leopold. Proposed the Land Ethic which extends equality to all creatures.

Aldo Leopold. Proposed the Land Ethic which extends equality to all creatures.

[A] land ethic changes the role of Homo Sapiens from conqueror of the land-community to plain member and citizen of it. It implies respect for his fellow-members, and also respect for the community as such.”  – Aldo Leopold

Not bad.  Perhaps “Earth ethic” would indicate the shared importance of the oceans, atmosphere, and land.  Anyway, as the brainiest of Earth’s creatures, ethical humans might be expected to act to protect and preserve wildlife.  Of course, it’s complicated.  Perhaps ethical behavior can begin with shared images and ideas.  Hence this blog.

As President of the Agua Fria Open Space Alliance, Inc., I serve as the organization’s principal representative.  Information about the organization is hosted here.

You will find samples of my fiction under the menu item Corr Syl, and my nonfiction work under Nature.  (The menu is below the row of my favorite books.)
