In all honesty, whichever path you choose, making forward progress is key.
The same is true for the future of our planet. Forests, like this one, may play an important role in healing our climate and biodiversity crises. According to an article from The Guardian, campaigners are stating, “The restoration of natural forests and coasts can simultaneously tackle climate change and the annihilation of wildlife but is being worryingly overlooked.”
So, even if that end goal seems far away right now, it is up to us to start doing something about it. We need to make forward progress.
