“…it is my hope that this … will steer us away from the dangerous course of business-as usual,…”

Prof Edward O Wilson

David Attenborough

“It was 1946….the University of Cambridge….And we were not allowed to dream about Gondwana”


Nelson Mandela

I endorse the ideals of Gondwana Alive because it approaches, as I see it, the very core of two concerns most dear to me – the children of today’s world and the children of tomorrow’s world”


Kofi Annan

Jane Goodall

“We are endangering the future of life on earth. The Gondwana Alive project calls us to take action before it is utterly too late.”

HRH Prince Charles

“…the Gondwana Alive project…gives us cause to think more carefully about the potential consequences of our actions…”


The Dalai Lama

“…it is more important than ever that each of us makes whatever effort we can to ensure the protection, restoration, and replenishment of our environment and its inhabitants.”


Richard Leakey

“The Gondwana Alive project is an importation and timely contribution to raising awareness, and I hope that it will stimulate fresh actions worldwide to stem the unreasonable and irresponsible activities of our species.”
