Madison Square Park is a lively public space in New York City. I’ve been strolling through, stopping for lunch and people-watching there for 30 years. But I’ve never seen dinosaurs dancing for Shake Shack burger-munchers before.

Dinosaurs and the Save the Soil Movement
In their strange way, the ancient reptilians were calling attention to the Save the Soil Movement.
Save the Soil is a movement dedicated to promoting the importance of healthy soils. Soils are the foundation of life on Earth, providing the basic necessities for plant growth and food production.
They also play a vital role in water purification and the cycling of nutrients. However, soils are often taken for granted and abused, leading to serious degradation and loss of productivity. The Save the Soil movement seeks to raise awareness about the importance of soils and to promote sustainable management practices that will help protect this valuable resource.
