5. Governments need to play a role
Animals and plants don’t care much about political borders. Many habitats overlap different countries, and many important wildlife corridors (natural or artificial) cross state lines. That’s why cooperation from governments is crucial, and while it’s probably too much to expect that legislators will be very knowledgeable in that area, we should at least make sure that they are disposed to listen to the experts and make forward-looking decisions to help protect many precious species and habitats.
And of course, you can play a role too, either by supporting your favorite environmental NGO, or by bringing habitat conservation to the attention of your political representatives!
