save the world: share resources


These archery targets are at a flat area of an extinct volcano at Mt Albert Summit. This was also a designated area where dogs were off their leash to exercise. Last year, the dog owners were angry that the area was cordoned off so that a few privileged archers could monopolized the whole space for their sole use.

Men and dog coexist, and there were a lot of petition signing. They argued that the archers were hardly there, and it was unfair and poor use of resources when the field is left unused.

Eventually both parties compromised. When the archers notify their use on their notice boards and also put up red flags. During these times, dog owners should try to exercise their dogs in another area. When the archers are not using the field, the dogs are free to roam.

I believe this is one example of save the world by coexisting and sharing resources.

I'm glad that a compromised was found that enabled both groups to use the area.

A good post Ann! Good photograph and good reporting to go with it -- especially since it ended so well.
