You are invited to adopt a Vitan Moniker - a few words that identifies how you feel about the Living Planet and the world around you - a personal, emotional narrative.
You can have more than one moniker, although there will probably be one that speaks most deeply to you.
Some Vita Monikers are shown below with a brief story about how they relate.
Feel free to adopt one of the monikers below, or create one for yourself.
Contact Vita and share your name, your moniker and a photo, and we'll add it to this page.
Deep empathy for marine life and concern for the individual fish, species and fish populations long-gone or under threat.
A sense of sadness knowing that while some trees need fire to reproduce, many will be lost in fires hotter then before.
A fascination with the daily struggle for survival of wildlife that is spurred by a life-and-death struggle playing out in a suburban garden.
A fascination with clean-technology and a sense of optimism for the opportunities and the challenges it presents.
The largest trees in the forest have the best chance of surviving the coming changes and are the hosts of many lives.
Given to deep contemplation about what's coming and how best to live one's life to make things better.
ATMOSPHERIC RIVERS FLOAT ABOVE
Deforestation in the east of Brazil is reducing the amount of moisture in the air that flows westwards and contributes, through rain, the Amazon River.
CLEAN TECHNOLOGY IN ASCENDENCE
The age of fossil fuels is over because renewable energy is so much cheaper and doesn't pollute the atmosphere with heat trapping greenhouse gases. Renewable energy technologies are at the beginning of their technological development cycle, so they will continue to get better and better.
LONG-GONE OCEAN FISH
a warming ocean drained of life
from gyres on fire
to long-gone ocean fish
micro-plastic feeding paste
to hungry chicks
to no good end
too hard to contemplate
WILDLIFE SCREAMING FOR SURVIVAL
A deeply embedded grief for the loss of so many of our amazingly unique native species, and the individual suffering and pain of these innocent creatures.
MARTIAN MADNESS MURDERS ALL
The quest to send humans to Mars is madness and is sucking up billions of dollars that could otherwise be directed to protecting this planet's biosphere. Instead, it is being siphoned off by engineering firms to create useless technology. Even if humans do get to Mars, the misery will have people murdering each other in no time
AT HOME WITH WATER LIFE
At home with water life suggests two things, first that domestic aquariums, or aquatic habitats, provide a sense of calm and intrigue. And also the idea of being 'at home with' or comfortable with water life, as in the school of sharks in the inner ring image.
