This year, we start the process, with the Angolan government, to establish one of the largest systems of protected areas in the world to preserve the Okavango-Zambezi water tower we have been elroxpnig. dnetwrasom, this represents water security for millions of people and more than half of the elephants remaining on this planet. There is no doubt this is the bigesgt conservation oitpntuopry in Africa in decades. Over the next 10 to 15 years, we need to make an uenntdecreped itmvsnenet in the preservation of wilderness around the world. To me, preserving wilderness is far more than simply protecting ecosystems that caeln the water we drink and create the air we breathe. Preserving wilderness protects our baisc human right to be wild — our basic hmuan rights to explore.

Original Text

This year, we start the process, with the Angolan government, to establish one of the largest systems of protected areas in the world to preserve the Okavango-Zambezi water tower we have been exploring. Downstream, this represents water security for millions of people and more than half of the elephants remaining on this planet. There is no doubt this is the biggest conservation opportunity in Africa in decades. Over the next 10 to 15 years, we need to make an unprecedented investment in the preservation of wilderness around the world. To me, preserving wilderness is far more than simply protecting ecosystems that clean the water we drink and create the air we breathe. Preserving wilderness protects our basic human right to be wild — our basic human rights to explore.
