“Business, local communities, civil society, the youth, all of us led by governments must take action. ... Really, we need transformative action to make a difference.” - Elizabeth Maruma Mrema, acting executive secretary

We have to do something about biodiversity loss, and that means shifting our diet away from animals and towards plants. Time is running out for us all to grasp that.
