Give the Whale a Seat at UN Table – Nature Positive Campaign

Posted by Nature4Climate

Māori and Pacific nation leaders advocate for a pivotal shift in perspective. In the captivating video “Whales: A Seat at the Table,” these ocean giants emerge as key contributors to climate solutions and indispensable to ocean biodiversity, marine habitats, and our very own survival. The call is clear: world leaders must recognize the sacredness, authority, and ecological significance of these majestic creatures. 🐳

The video released at #COP28 serves as a powerful reminder that Indigenous Peoples and local communities are the true stewards of our planet. Safeguarding 80% of the world’s cultural and biological diversity while occupying just 20% of the world’s lands, they are the guardians of harmony, wisdom, and resilience—nurturing the delicate balance between humanity and the natural world.
