Support wildlife conservancies to avoid human/wildlife conflicts and thus ensure safety of livestock.
Raise awareness of the fact that a rise in intense and unsustainable farming, increased use and exploitation of wildlife, and the climate crisis are all driving the increased emergence of zoonotic diseases– diseases transmitted from wildlife to people – like COVID-19. Every year, 2 million people, mostly from low- and middle-income countries, die from zoonotic diseases.
Advocate on indigenous people’s land rights.
Protect trees. They benefit all lives on earth and provide for the oxygen we breathe. They are also essential to some communities’ environment as forests are home to three hundred million people, and 1.6 billion people depend on them for their livelihoods.
Avoid the use of technologies such as improved seeds, chemical fertilizers and pesticides degrading self-sustaining ecosystems as they affect many indigenous communities.
