Biodiversity and the Rights of Nature

Biodiversity and the Rights of Nature

The conservation of biodiversity is essential for more than human survival.  All ecosystems on our planet are deeply intertwined and we are already experiencing the consequences of ignoring the ‘Rights of Nature.”  

The Rights of Nature is an acknowledgement of our moral and legal responsibility to living things and the natural ecosystems that support them by setting our choices into balance with what is good for all on this planet.
