At present we are busy destroying our remaining rainforest, hunting wildlife to the edge of extinction, overfishing the oceans, devastating delicate habitats and ruining the planet.
The decline in the world’s animals is unprecedented.
If this goes on much longer we will have destroyed it all. That surely is not good?
The only answer that I can see is to create many more national parks. If we made 50% of the planet national parks and prevented hunting and fishing in those areas we would provide havens for the remaining wildlife.
Humans could live happily in the other half and our grandchildren would be able to have the wonder of seeing elephants, gorillas, chimps, rhinos and whales living free; to see rainforest, desert, tundra, savannah and plains alive with wildlife.
Surely there is room for us all?
