Sir David Attenborough's “witness statement” detailing the world’s devastating biodiversity loss at the hands of humanity, along with his vision for the future.

Everyone of us is unique and has unique chance to improve quality of life on Earth, help Earth to recover and give chance to the future generations.. We are all connected and Earth is our home which need our good work and good heart more than ever!
"We totally rely on nature: for food, for medicine, for clothes, for energy, for everything. We are part of nature, it is inherent in everything we are and do." – Bård Vegar Solhjell, Director General of the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation @noradno at #GLFBiodiversity

By night or day.
The things which I have seen I now can see no more.
