What it means to be a 'keeper'


We have been given the idea that we have dominion over the natural world. Why? Bees are helping me 'unlearn' this notion and behaviour. I am trying a new role of custodian ('keeper' in the purest sense) - I feel like that's my 'job'. 

Def. of keeper: noun
  1. 1.
    a person who manages or looks after something or someone.

This National Geographic article about "scientist-advocate" Lori Marino helps us challenge the notion of man's dominion over the natural world.
