Recommendations for citizens
Recommendations for policymakers
We need to establish a lot more “well-funded and well-managed” reserves to protect species in the sea and fresh water, in the air and on land.
We need to stop converting forests, grasslands and other native habitats, and we need to restore plant communities that have already been slashed, “particularly forest landscapes.” Forests, lest we forget, aren’t just essential homes to many species; they also absorb greenhouse gases. Also, we need to re-wild certain areas.
We’re undergoing the sixth mass extinction event in Earth’s history.
