Human and Subhuman Biodiversity

Human and subhuman (flora/fauna) biodiversity are linked by their common enemies, such as the Chinese Communist Party, and the American white supremacists who continue to subjugate Native Americans and trash their land at the same time. It is the indigenous people of a land, the people who have been there the longest, who really care about it the most, and who know it the most intimately. According to Grist.org, “Indigenous peoples comprise only 5 percent of the world’s population, yet their lands encompass 22 percent of its surface. Eighty percent of the planet’s biodiversity is on the lands where they live.”
