2020 is marked as the super year for nature and biodiversity.
Fiji Great Sea Reef Programme Manager, Alfred Ralifo believes the COVID 19 has given nature an opportunity to take a step back and revive itself.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a reminder of our dysfunctional relationship with nature.
The current economic crisis has put a great pressure on the natural environment with most people going back to nature as a source of livelihood.
Nature also benefits us by providing our food, water and clean air, and is one of our strongest allies against climate change.
WWF is calling on all stakeholders around the country to step up their efforts in protecting our natural biodiversity from further exploitation.
Meanwhile, as the nation celebrates International Biodiversity Day, WWF is urging the general public to take a moment and reflect on their actions on how they can conserve our ecosystem.
