Terry Jastrow Producer / Director / Actor

Terry_Jastrow“What The Earth Organization addresses is the most important issue of our time. Our one and only home, Earth, has serious problems that affect us all. Species are going extinct all over the world breaking vital links in the chain of life. Wildlife is disappearing off the face of the Earth at an alarming rate. Can we break this downward spiral? Of course we can, but we have to acknowledge the problem, be honest about it, and collectively decide to do something about it. Rise up and play a bigger part. Mankind is very capable of doing it…we just have to decide to do it. Trying to take at least my share of responsibility I’m happy to be a member of and supportive of The
Earth Organization.

“Won’t you join…for Earth’s sake?”
