Why Nature Needs a Seat at the United Nations

StFF Founder, David de Rothschild, is in Paris this week chairing a round table discussion at the COP21 Summit.  

In an online article for Amuse, a digital magazine and video channel published by i-D, David expresses his fears:

Our oceans really are rising and have already risen. It already is hotter and it’s going to get hotter. It’s dry and going to get drier. The familiar shape of continents and countries soon won’t be so familiar, as by the middle of this century we’ll be redrawing the maps as we know it. We are killing ourselves quickly and slowly. We are losing against ourselves. There is no off switch.

I’ve travelled a lot and do what I can to turn this knowledge into positive action. I’m generally an optimist, but I am shit scared.

and offers an idea for how conservation efforts could be approached at the national and international level.
