"The mindset that the natural world is ours to destroy and profit from needs to change. With deforestation encroaching on many important habitats around the world, we need to ask ourselves if our consumption is worth more than these animals' existence. The natural world has been pushed aside by expanding agricultural and urban areas, leaving barely any room for wildlife. Protecting small areas is no longer enough - we need to rewild and give land back to nature."
