Food for thought

Last week I took a few days off to coincide  with the kids’ half term break and headed to the Serengeti.

On the second and last day we killed the morning at the lodge before the long drive back, and were treated to this great view of the annual controlled burning that is carried out in the park.

Seems destructive, but actually it’s vital to ongoing renewing of the habitat and the availability of food that the whole ecosystem relies on. Without burning off the old and no longer productive plant life, there’s no room for the new stuff. The carbon generated also contributes to the nutrients that are required for the new growth to happen as well.

So although appearing destructive, and certainly uncomfortable for the animal and bird life that has to get out of the way – it’s a crucial stage in the regeneration of the ecosystem.

A lesson or two in there from nature for business and life in general I think…
