This Sunday, May 8th, North Americans will be celebrating Mother’s Day.

In addition to celebrating the amazing women who have brought us life, let’s also celebrate our collective Mother (Mother Earth) who sustains life on this planet for us all!

In Conservation International’s “Nature Is Speaking” video series, Julia Roberts plays the voice of Mother Nature and sends us a powerful reminder that our ability to survive and thrive on this earth depends on how we treat her.

"Some call me nature, other's call me Mother Nature. When I thrive, you thrive. When I falter, you falter. I am nature. I will go on. I am prepared to evolve. Are you?"

You can show Mom (and Mother Earth, too) some extra love this year by purchasing a Stand For Trees certificate in her name.

When you support a Stand For Trees Project you preserve critical habitats, protect endangered wildlife, support sustainable community development, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This is a gift that helps to build a better future for the ones you love.
