Stopping the next pandemic
Stopping the next pandemic is the new challenge facing the world’s leading scientists. Around the world, their field studies are showing that our health depends on animal and environmental health. We must preserve the environment to prevent future pandemics.
All over the world, fires of unprecedented violence are devouring our forests. Every year, 350 million hectares – six times the size of France – go up in smoke. What measures can we take before our towns and forests are reduced to ashes?
