This week marks #EarthDay50, and it is a good time to remember that in the midst of this crisis, the way we treat our planet and nature has a serious impact on our health. #COVID19 is one of many animal-to-human— or “zoonotic”— diseases that pose a major threat to human life.
As we focus on the pandemic response in NM, there are important lessons about nature we need to carry into the future:
- Protecting wildlife from illegal trafficking protects nature AND humanity.
- We must conserve & protect habitat & biodiversity.
- We must listen to scientists.
