UN DECADE ON RESTORATION

This year, the United Nations is launching the ‘Decade on Restoration’ on World Environment Day, the 5th June 2021. 

There has never been a more urgent need to restore damaged ecosystems through rewilding than now.

Ecosystems support all life on Earth. The healthier our ecosystems are, the healthier all life on earth is, including us. The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration aims to prevent, halt and reverse the degradation of ecosystems on every continent and in every ocean. It can help to end poverty, combat climate change and prevent a mass extinction. It will only succeed if everyone plays a part.

We must rewild the world

"To restore stability to our planet, we must restore its biodiversity, the very thing we have removed. It is the only way out of this crisis that we ourselves have created. We must rewild the world."

Sir David Attenborough, 'A Life on Our Planet - My Witness Statement and a Vision for the Future'
