BirdLife International’s Director of Science and Policy, Melanie Heath, is that the seriousness of the pandemic is strong enough to wake everyone up and bring us all together to restore nature and protect us from similar crisis in future.
Look after the earth, and she will look after us. We are not looking after earth, so what can we expect? It’s time for us to redress the balance and put nature in her rightful place again, so that she can look after us. We need to have a right to a healthy natural environment.
