The Global Safety Net is an interactive map that shows us the areas we need to focus on to fight climate change and biodiversity loss.
'The idea here is to have this blueprint to start a big discussion,' explains researcher Manno Andrade França.

The Global Safety Net focuses on land inhabited by rare species, large mammals, high biodiversity, as well as intact wilderness areas.
'We are in the face of possibly the biggest crisis that we have ever faced.'
