We are living in a time of crisis. Scientists, farmers, Indigenous Peoples and even the United Nations all agree that humanity’s impact on the world’s ecosystems and natural resources has brought us to a turning point. If there is no intervention, the planet faces the mass extinction of up to 1 million plant and animal species due to pollution, habitat loss, and climate change.
This program consists of commentary from Indigenous Leaders such as Les Malezer - Advocate for the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of Australia, Ladonna Brave Bull Allard - Lakota historian, and Ben Ruli from the Gimi people of Papua New Guinea.
