Dove for the future

Until now, I knew that “dove” can have two meanings: a nice little bird that hangs around cities, and the past tense of “dive.” It’s because of this ambiguity that I always write “dived” instead of “dove” (for the action, not the bird: I have seen very few diveds flying around).

Today, I learned something new: “Dove” is also a major brand of cosmetics. My ignorance can be excused: the only cosmetic I use is soap. But this Dove is definitely not in the past tense. Katherine Martinko reports in Treehugger that the company is investing big in saving a future.

In cooperation with Conservation International, they are restoring a bit of rainforest twice the area of Paris. This is in Borneo, one of the most biodiverse areas in the world, the home of interesting people like pangolins, tigers, leopards, tapirs — and it will also help local villagers in several ways.

Fly high, Dove!

    Maybe the meaning of your typo is: “the home of interesting animals like ….”
    Allow me to add “orangutan” as a unique animal in Borneo island. I’ve seen them in person.
    Btw, is this an ad post?

      That was not a typo. I meant to say people, because animals share many cognitive and emotional characteristics with humans.
      Second no, this is NOT an ad post. If some commercial mob does the right thing, I see nothing against praising them. When they do the wrong thing, I do my best to expose their actions.
