Covid-19 and its Impacts on the Environment

The COVID-19 pandemic is getting more overwhelming by the day, but one sliver of good news that has surfaced is that the restrictions on movements in many parts of the world, has been decreasing air pollution, and reducing CO2 emissions. We look at the links between human and ecosystem health.

Update: The sightings of wild animals in Italy, as mentioned in the podcast, has been reported to be fake by National Geographic.
