"Have a look at this a very important document that fearlessly reviews the reality of our relationships. Our relationships to the Earth, to other beings, to ourselves, and to life itself. We must realize that when we collectively and individually do harm to anything, we do harm to ourselves.
This article looks at the consequences of human activities. Human destructions and creations continue, despite the consequences. That is why this article is worth our deepest consideration. We need to place intrinsic value on all things that support us. That which we take for granted, we are denying the next generation. Humans have and can live in a world where all life is sacred." - Shaelyn Wabegijig
"The IPBES Global Assessment Report on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services is the most comprehensive ever completed. It is the first intergovernmental Report of its kind and builds on the landmark Millennium Ecosystem Assessment of 2005, introducing innovative ways of evaluating evidence.
Based on the systematic review of about 15,000 scientific and government sources, the Report also draws (for the first time ever at this scale) on indigenous and local knowledge, particularly addressing issues relevant to Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities." -IPBES Report
