It's no surprise that on a global scale 1 million animal and plant species are facing extinction due to the activities of humans according to a UN report carried out over 3 years. Our oceans are decimated from over fishing our rain forests are being burned to make room for cash crops and food and wild animals are being harvested for food and profit at unprecedented levels. All of this is catastrophic for the very survival of humans themselves so what can be done ? It seems plenty if we are willing to make sacrifices and different choices that lead to better outcomes for nature. Our whole world is driven by the need for economic growth which is a key factor in the exploitation of the natural world so perhaps we as individuals need to reassess and value a different way to live and support the policy makers willing to support that idea.
