Young Girl’s “Incurable” Hydrocephalus Disappears

At just a few months old, Evie-Mae Geurts was blind. With the continued pressure on her brain, Doctors said she would be blind forever and that she’d probably never learn to walk and talk. But her sight returned when she was a toddler. Normally, hydrocephalus cannot be cured and requires shuts to relieve the pressure, but today, seven-year-old Evie Mae is free of shunts, is at the top of her class, and can see perfectly without glasses. Here’s the story from the Good News Network.

The Rights of Water

In Florida, legal advocates are empowering bodies of water to have rights for self-protection.

“If you can grant (rights) to a corporation, why not the Great Lakes? Why not the Mississippi River? Why not the many waterways across our planet that we all depend on to survive?” Kelsey Leonard

One-Horned Rhino Population is Growing

At the start of the 20th century, the greater one-horned rhinos were close to extinction with only about 200 existing in the wild. Now, there are 4,014 of these rhinos in India and Nepal. The recent population growth is partly due to a “baby boom” during the pandemic, when protected areas were closed to visitors. Here’s more from CNN.

  1. These are great stories, JoAnna. I live sloths.

  2. Warms my heart. Love the sloth reunion ❤️

  3. The Rights of Water:
    I agree with Chuck O’Neal, former chairman of the Florida Rights of Nature Network, when he says:
    “The current laws are stacked against nature because nature is viewed as property. When you buy a property, you can do whatever you want with it. Our planet needs to take into account that these natural bodies of water, forests, and animals have a right to live.”

    • Thank you very much for bringing these powerful words up. Your understanding gives me hope. This heightened awareness needs to spread far and wide until it becomes the norm for the well-being of all.
