What is Nature Worth?

Plants, animals, even entire ecosystems are disappearing from the Earth. So what?

What does that have to do with us? We’ve got everything we need, so what’s the big deal?

The video What Is Nature Worth offers a 3-minute vision into what we’re really losing with the loss of biodiversity on our planet, Spaceship Earth.
