Right now, the coronavirus pandemic is the global priority. We all need to work together to save lives and keep our communities together. But the climate and nature emergencies will still be there when the spread of Covid-19 is brought under control.

As well as protecting the planet from climate change, our forests are home to a huge range of amazing nature and animal biodiversity. It's crucial that we do all we can to keep them safe.
