There are two parts to our name. The first part, “Mirlo”, comes from the “mirlo capiblanco”, a type of Blackbird – known in English as the Ring Ouzel. The mirlo is a bird which migrates every year from the North of Europe to the Canary Islands. Once it reaches its destination it feeds on the seeds of the Canary Island cedar tree, (a threatened species) which contributes to its preservation. We tell you all about this charming little bird in our animated video.
“Positive Nature” actually refers to two concepts: firstly: the positive impact we intend making on nature and society and secondly: our nature, – our way of being – which is positive. All of us and all of our supporters are naturally positive people and we want to help them leave nature a positive legacy. We’re Mirlos!
If you want to become a Mirlo too, a good way to start is by sharing our video so that other people can find out about us. The more we are, the sooner we’ll achieve our goal! We want you to join us, we want you to unleash your positive nature and we want you to leave a positive footprint on the planet. Let’s fly together, let’s plant some seeds!
