Noah’s Ark. Edward Hicks, 1846.

Biodiversity is the rock on which civilization is built.

In this talk, Pavan Sukhdev makes visible biodiversity’s contribution to the ‘world system’. He outlines the scale of the challenge and the steps we need to take to begin to meet it.

“When was the last time a bee sent you an invoice?”

And in this next one, John Kasaona outlines a case of community-based conservation in Namibia.

“This is the good news about Africa that we have to shout from the rooftops!”

Brilliant!

Have a great week of learning 🙂
