  • Hi Terril. Welcome to the Alliance. My apologies for being slow in greeting you, but I'm so grateful you've found us.
    Ecopsychology is also a topic very near and dear to my heart. I wrote my Master's thesis on Colony Collapse Disorder and the symbolic nature of the recent ongoing mass vanishing of honeybees. I have had some wonderful connections not only with bees but with many aspects of nature--and I often wonder about the animals we are increasingly displacing as we continue to develop and colonize the habitats those "others" have inhabited long before we arrived on the scene.

    I love your question in the forum and hope it will engender some discussion here. Sometimes a topic will incubate for awhile and then suddenly get a response and take off like wildfire. Please don't hesitate to add additional thoughts to your own post and also to share any relevant links or articles you come across that may be of interest to the community-either in the Ecopsych group on elsewhere on any topic.

    I will also send you some additional tips on navigating the site in a separate message in case its of help. I'm glad to have your voice in the community. Regards~Bonnie Bright, Founder.
