Daily: Can a TRILLION TREES save Earth’s biodiversity?
Play • 23 min

The climate emergency brings a nightmare threat to biodiversity, with disastrous knock-on effects to human economies as well as the natural world. Are governments doing enough to protect and restore threatened ecosystems? Ecologist and chief scientific advisor to the UN’s Trillion Tree Campaign Thomas Crowther tells Jude Rogers about the urgent need to reverse global deforestation – starting at the grassroots. 

  • “The loss of ecosystems is not just essential for climate change. It’s essential for our ongoing livelihoods.”
  • “It’s not just putting trees in the ground. We need to recreate and reintegrate nature.”
  • “Global restoration does not happen from the top-down decisions. It happens from an immense bottom-up movement.”
  • “Tree restoration is not enough… we need thousands of solutions to tackle climate change.” 

Presented by Jude Rogers. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Assistant producers Jelena Sofronijevic and Jacob Archbold. Music by Kenny Dickinson. Audio production by Alex Rees. THE BUNKER is a Podmasters Production
