On World Environment Day, June 5, 2021 the United Nations called on its constituency to join the efforts to restore critical habitat and ecosystems around the globe. A "rallying cry" for radical healing of the planet, the UN Decade on Restoration is focused on preventing, halting and reversing the degradation of ecosystems worldwide. This new Decade proceeds the UN Decade on Biodiversity (2011-2020) that sought to bring conversations about and support the integration of biodiversity to the mainstream that all anthropogenic environments might live in harmony with nature.
