Per Greek mythology Gaia is the beginning of all life; the goddess Mother Earth. She created the sky and the sea as well as the mountains and the hills. She bore the Titans, the Gods and man. This name was the perfect fit for an ecology focused blog.
Not to be confused with the Gaia Hypothesis, the Gaia Project aims to promote awareness of the world around us through education. Posts will focus on basic ecology theories and hypotheses as well as current research and hot topics presented for debate. Additional features will include “meet your local ecologist” where every month a new ecologist will be highlighted.
The purpose of this blog is to help those struggling to understand the impact of climate change on our lives, our economy and our future by providing a basic foundation of how our world operates. We hope that you enjoy this journey as much as we enjoy ecology.
