Biodiversity and pandemics : Podcast
Protection of nature has a crucial role in preventing the emergence of future pandemics. Our current destructive relationship with nature that has led to habitat modifications and landscape transformations such as deforestation and agricultural expansion have increased the risks of emerging diseases. Moreover, pandemics are more likely to occur due to the exponential increase of human activities related to farmed and domestic animal populations. Listen to our podcast and learn more about the role of biodiversity loss in the outbreak of pandemics.
