Here is a Cloud Tale for you x
After her return to Earth, Cloud takes guidance from the stars who navigate her towards a sorrowful river. Kneeling at the waters edge, Cloud remembers how the rivers of the world once flowed, once sparkled, once kept the sacred secrets of life. Cloud cries, her tears of grief are full of love, they ripple with healing. So it is.

About the Rainforest Action Group
The Rainforest Action Group (MRAG) undertakes research, education, advocacy work, and non-violent direct action to protect rainforests worldwide. We are committed to securing the earth's ecological future and a sustainable and equitable society. Our current campaign focus is halting the massive expansion of mining in Ecuador.
Ecuador is one of the world's biodiversity hotspots, with more vertebrate and endemic plant species than the entire United States and Northern Europe combined. This mega-diverse nation also contains some of the world's most endangered forests. Unfortunately, in 2017 the government sold 14% of the land in Ecuador in concessions to mining companies. Much of this is in protected forests and on Indigenous territories.
MRAG works in solidarity with the Caminantes Collective in Ecuador – a collective of Indigenous groups and local community groups to develop and share resources and support their fight against Australian mining companies.
