Landscape scale ecological restoration has come of age with schemes blossoming across Britain and Europe. The work of The Wildlife Trusts has been celebrated recently by Mike McFarlane.
However, Google and Time magazine have just published a seminal study of the unmaking of healthy ecological networks at the global level.
The Time and Space iniitiative has used cutting-edge IT to build time-lapse images showing the fragmentation and degradation of ecosystems at the global level.
|| These Timelapse pictures tell the pretty and not-so-pretty story of a finite planet and how its residents are treating it — razing even as we build, destroying even as we preserve. It takes a certain amount of courage to look at the videos, but once you start, it’s impossible to look away. Jeffrey Kluger ||
It will be many years before sequences showing the reconstrution of connected healthy ecosystems can be assembled - if we have the will to undo the damage that this amazing study has revealed in such a graphic way.
