“Beekeeping in New York City isn’t going to save the planet. But it is a step in the right direction.
There is just no doubt; if we are to continue living in cities, we’ll have to stop stripping nature bare, with no thought for tomorrow.
What we do in our homes and in our streets affects the entire planet. The future of our civilization depends on the balance between the natural world and the urban jungle.
The destiny of our planet is in human hands.”
– John Hurt, Cities: Surviving the Urban Jungle, Episode One, The Human Planet, BBC EARTH
