Nature finally gets a voice.

Nature finally gets a voice.

NATURE DOESN’T NEED PEOPLE. PEOPLE NEED NATURE
— Conservation International's Humanifesto

A new series of short films called "Nature is Speaking" debuts today online and they are incredible. Through the voices of celebrities from Julia Roberts to Kevin Spacy we hear what nature would say to humans.

Mother nature is pissed, soil is frustrated, and rainforest gets a little bit snippy.

Through the video series Conservation International is looking to reframe the climate change conversation: we don't have to save the planet because nature will evolve - we have to save ourselves.

Below are some of our favorite quotes. 

MOTHER NATURE

I have fed species greater than you. And I have starved species greater than you.

OCEAN

I mean I could give a damn - with or without humans

I’m The Ocean.

SOIL

Without me, humans could not exist. But you treat me ... like dirt.

RAINFOREST

But humans are so smart - such big brains and opposable thumbs... why would they need an old forest like me anymore? Well, they do breath air... and I make air ...
