While humans are in quarantine, nature is getting a chance to breathe again and thrive in spaces it usually avoids or has been edged out of. My hope is that when this is over we can find a more balanced way of living with and protecting the natural world.
This is my take on a Tree of Life. I’ve included species that are both on the endangered species list and ones that are not on it yet. The trajectory we are on now will certainly cause even plentiful species to become endangered or extinct. I hope Covid-19 is a wake-up call, not only for our own health but the health of our planet as well.
