Today is #WorldEnvironmentDay! With this year’s theme being #Bioversity, something which is fundamental to life, we want to reflect on the importance of looking after our Earth and all its inhabitants 🌍
As we understand more about the ways that #ClimateChange is impacting #Biodiversity, it becomes clear that we cannot tackle the two crises separately. Their interdependence requires us to address them together. #WorldEnvironmentDay

#COVID19 is forcing us to re-evaluate our relationship with the natural earth. This #WorldEnvironmentDay, let us remind ourselves that our health depends on healthy ecosystems & commit to protecting the #Biodiversity of our beautiful planet for generations to come.
Recognising that #ClimateChange and other causes of ecosystem degradation all contribute to #biodiversity loss will help us face the considerable threats it poses to human health. #WorldEnvironmentDay
