About this Positive Pursuit

Through our physical presence and ongoing activities, humans have long encroached on and disrupted the natural world. As a result, many terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems are now on the brink of collapse.

Ecosystem degradation caused by others is reduced when:

  • Existing ecosystems are protected from further encroachment; or
  • Activities that lead to ecosystem degradation are avoided.

This Positive Pursuit encompasses any action which achieves such an outcome.
