In case you missed it, last week was the #OurLandOurNature alternative congress, which finished on Friday with a #protest in Marseille, France, where we were joined by a number of other orgs including @xrFrance, @amisdelaterre & @yfcmarseille.

2. Conservationists must listen to #Indigenous peoples.

All the evidence is there – Indigenous peoples are the best defenders of the planet. To ignore them is nothing short of racism, and it is detrimental to us all.…
