Wild spaces across the world must be restored and protected if the world is to successfully get to grips with the twin climate and nature crises, research says

Wild spaces across the world must be restored and protected if the world is to successfully get to grips with the twin climate and nature crises, scientists have said.

Such changes include new laws to protect ecosystems, an end to harmful agricultural subsidies and a surge in new investments to boost biodiversity.
