The LORAX the Original Advocate of the Urban Forest

It's no accident that The Lorax is one of my kid's favorite Seusian tales.

The original, describes a deplorable future where industrial effluent and the regret of the Onceler are pitted against the passionate fury of The Lorax, "who speaks for the Trees" and advocates for the "Brown Barbaloots" and "Swanny Swans" and "Humming Fish" and their diverse habitat.

If your Children are inspired by The Lorax and want to make a real difference in the health of our local forests consider exploring programming offered by LEAF, Local Enhancement and Appreciation of Forests. Their experience in Urban Forestry and Advocacy for the trees are right up there with the Lorax's.

I wonder if David Suzuki was considered for the voice of the Lorax?

What's with Mazda co-opting the Lorax brand to sell cars - Universal Studios what were you thinking? The comments are really interesting.
