This short video from the WWF Living Planet Report 2020 (EN – FR) page, in an effort to raise awareness about the current world situation it gives us facts and key messages like « NATURE IS OUR ALLY / NOT OUR ENEMY » and « WE TAKE FROM IT FASTER THAN IT CAN RECOVER » which is so true but unfortunately many of us (humans) are not aware of the impact of our daily life actions on the nature.
I will develop this subject further in another post while also try to keep it short, simple and accessible, stay tuned! As a conclusion, I pasted the words from WWF-US President and CEO Carter Roberts on WWF Living Planet Report 2020 page.
« THIS REPORT REMINDS US THAT WE DESTROY THE PLANET AT OUR PERIL—BECAUSE IT IS OUR HOME. AS HUMANITY’S FOOTPRINT EXPANDS INTO ONCE-WILD PLACES, WE’RE DEVASTATING SPECIES POPULATIONS. BUT WE’RE ALSO EXACERBATING CLIMATE CHANGE AND INCREASING THE RISK OF ZOONOTIC DISEASES LIKE COVID-19. WE CANNOT SHIELD HUMANITY FROM THE IMPACTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL DESTRUCTION. IT’S TIME TO RESTORE OUR BROKEN RELATIONSHIP WITH NATURE FOR THE BENEFIT OF SPECIES AND PEOPLE ALIKE »
