Life on Land
The third installment in our series on sustainable development goals (SDGs) is "Life on Land." Each year 13 million hectares of forest are lost and 40,000 species go extinct. However, Japan is full of wisdom left from predecessors for protecting life on land. There's a sacred shrine forest in the city that took 100 years to build, slash and burn agriculture that doesn't destroy ecosystems, and people who protect endangered species. We search for ways to maintain the abundance of life on land while looking at Japan's initiatives and the situation overseas.
