Like plants, people have the power to grow, thrive and adapt to their environment. If given the correct amount of light, water, and nutrients; plants will flourish. The growth and productivity of plants are strongly impacted by their environment. Environmental stress can be detrimental to the life of a plant. Just like plants, humans are deeply affected by the stresses of our habitats. And just like plants, humans have the biological ability to adapt and discover how to thrive despite unfavorable environmental circumstances.
Adaptation is an exploration and celebration of humanities kinship with the Earth. We are at a tipping point as climate change adversely effects our environment. Humanity must decide to adapt and change our habits in order to protect life on Earth. Otherwise, we are in danger of losing the conservation provided by our ecosystem.
