Media Update: 01/ 05/ 2012 - Amputee adventurer inspired by tree top visit
Yesterday amputee adventurer Warren Macdonald climbed 60 meters into the tree tops to visit tree sitter Miranda Gibson in The Observer Tree. Still Wild Still Threatened are releasing footage today of the incredible visit.
Warren Macdonald will be giving a talk tonight in Hobart to share his incredible story and his personal insights and reflections.
“In these uncertain times, our biggest challenge is to avoid becoming paralyzed by fear. What I saw in Miranda yesterday was someone that, despite having no idea what the future held when she climbed her tree 138 days ago,went anyway. Her commitment to, not just the forests, but the vision of what Tasmania’s future could look like, is outstanding and a shining example for us all” said Warren Macdonald
“It was an inspirational conversation to discuss with Warren the challenges that life can bring and the ways in which we all have the power to overcome those challenges” said Miranda Gibson. “Warren’s story shows the strength that each person can have not only to adapt to change in their own lives, but to create positive change in the world.”
