Giving Nature a Voice

Giving Nature a Voice

At tonight’s Momentum for Change Awards hosted in the COP21 press conference room, Conservation International Executive Vice President and Senior Scientist Dr. M. Sanjayan presented a new short film series which attempts to bring the natural world to life. Several A-List actors lent their voices to various natural phenomena, including Liam Neeson, Harrison Ford, Kevin Spacey, Edward Norton, Penelope Cruz, Robert Redford, Ian Somerhalder, and Lupita Nyong’o.  A particularly powerful personification of Mother Nature herself was voiced by Julia Roberts. Watch it here.

An additional short film project in a similar fashion titled Home was narrated by Reese Witherspoon. Watch it here.

Both of these films are powerful and remind us that we need nature to survive, but it does not need us. Conservation International is encouraging all of us to share why we need nature with #INeedNature to start a movement which recognizes the importance of our planet in the fight to end climate change and protect our natural resources and biodiversity.

You can watch the rest of the videos in the series at natureisspeaking.org.
