Biodiversity on the line at COP 15

Biodiversity on the line at COP 15

The COP 15 UN biodiversity meeting held in Montreal Canada in December 2022, was seen as a "last chance" to save the nature upon which the world depends. The resulting Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework here announced on December 19th is being celebrated as an historic first step and will be watched closely into 2023 to see how and what it delivers.
On Earth Matters we hear more about COP 15 and speak with three people working  on biodiversity issues in different ways: Nathaniel Pelle, nature campaigner with the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF), discusses the potential of COP 15; Ben Cooke, researcher with the Centre for Urban Research at RMIT University, looks at the limitations and poor resourcing of areas protected for conservation in Australia; and Rodney Carter, CEO of the Dja Dja Wurrung Group, speaks about the Galk-galk Dhelkunya, the Forest Gardening Strategy, based on traditional knowledge, conservation and respect for country.
