Hello Learners, Today we come across with new opportunity to get Free Environment Certificate/ WWF Certificate for everyone. Just you need to take a pledge for Protecting Environment to reduce the risk of another Pandemic.
About Covid-19 Pandemic
COVID-19 is the latest zoonotic disease to become a global pandemic. How do zoonotic diseases emerge and what can we do to prevent them? The answers lie in fixing our broken relationship with nature. We have created environments that put all of us at risk. But by taking steps to protect the planet, we can protect people from a future pandemic.
A new study published today in Science lays out a ground-breaking approach to reduce the danger of future pandemics by 27% or more, with a 10-year expenditure that is 50 times cheaper than the cost of coronavirus response efforts so far.
Reduce deforestation, restrict the global animal trade, and monitor the creation of new viruses before they spread, according to a three-pronged strategy developed by a group of public health professionals, ecologists, economists, and epidemiologists.
Conservation News met with three of the study’s co-authors to learn why safeguarding nature is critical to saving the global economy – and countless lives: Lee Hannah, Jorge Ahumada, and other Conservation International scientists.
PEOPLE AND PLANET PROTECTION
Wildlife tourism has plummeted, depriving communities – many of whom are naturalists – of vital revenue. Some indigenous villages are completely unprotected by COVID-19, leaving them vulnerable.
Illegal logging, wildlife poaching, and uncontrolled wildlife trading are all on the rise as humans become less capable of protecting the environment.
In recent years, we’ve seen actual progress: wild tigers and black rhinos are increasing in numbers. More individuals are concerned about the environment than ever before. We cannot allow this progress to be reversed.
Assist us in assisting communities that protect the environment – and in addressing the core causes of pandemics.
Climate change complicates almost everything, from changing bird migrations to your morning cup of coffee. From the standpoint of public health, the climate catastrophe is hastening the spread of some diseases while complicating attempts to combat others. Seasonality and weather are two of the most important elements that influence how quickly viruses like the flu infect humans. Despite the fact that experts are unsure how climate change may affect the spread of COVID-19, research suggests that rising global temperatures would alter the timing, distribution, and intensity of disease outbreaks.
My research, for example, reveals that as the climate heats, animal species are relocating toward the north and south poles, as well as up mountains, to avoid the heat. We don’t want people to come into touch with animal viruses in natural habitats, and we don’t want animal habitats to come into contact with humans and development projects. To avoid this, we must endeavor to halt climate change and provide nature with the space it requires to adapt naturally to the consequences that we can no longer avoid.
