The planet is now at the tipping point of biodiversity loss after years of unsustainable development and management of natural resources. The World Wide Fund for Nature reports that on average mammal, bird, fish, amphibian and reptile populations have plummeted 68 percent since 1970. As experts and thought leaders argued at the recent Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) Biodiversity Digital Conference: One World – One Health, ecosystem collapse will lead to civilization collapse, putting an end to human life as we know it.
Tune in to get highlights from GLF Biodiversity where Indigenous leaders, policy experts, heads of global organizations, youth and representatives from a diverse range of sectors joined together to discuss the importance of biodiversity to address crises of epic proportions, including the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change.
