It’s definitely worth a watch, I enjoyed it!
I think it did an excellent job of demonstrating that although at times it seems like some wildlife benefit from our existence, they can actually thrive without it.
As a lover of wildlife, I think that’s both a shame, and a real eye opener. I’d love to live in a world where we can coexist with nature, yet still engage with it but without any of the detrimental effects.
With that said, if our absence is necessary, then we ought to be absent so other species can thrive! Or at least, as a society, work towards a better and more balanced middle ground. I think there were some great proposals in the documentary as to how we can achieve them, and how some wildlife reserves plan to put some new rules in place in order to preserve some of the benefits lockdown has had on wildlife.
I also think we’ve demonstrated just how adaptable we are as a species, and that perhaps we could be open to the idea of infrequent smaller scale lockdowns in the future. Small changes to our lifestyle can have the most profound impact to our air quality, global warming, and the wildlife. Our temporary absence can do a lot of good for the planet.
