Warm­ing Up

Northern Living - - CONTENTS -

If there’s one thing we can un­abashedly ad­mit we are de­pen­dent on, it’s na­ture. In the house of Mother Na­ture, we are the boor­ish teenagers who, for the most part, leave it alone to deal with our grime, dis­turb­ing the equi­lib­rium it strives to main­tain to keep op­er­at­ing at an op­ti­mal level.

In this is­sue, we take cues from multi-hy­phen­ate Feli­cia Atienza, a fi­nance pro­fes­sional and cu­ri­ous trav­eler who holds en­vi­ron­men­tal­ism close to her heart; Ma­sungi Ge­o­re­serve’s Ann Du­maliang, whose work mar­ries land de­vel­op­ment and con­ser­va­tion; a Malaysian elephant sanc­tu­ary aim­ing to har­mo­nize ele­phants and hu­mans; and a restau­rant sup­port­ing lo­cal pur­vey­ors “even if it means pay­ing a pre­mium.”

Like Du­maliang says, “We have a long way to go, but we can get there.” Now, it’s time to out­grow ado­les­cence.
