Insight of the Week: High Public Concern about the State of Nature in Countries around the World

Few people around the world say nature is in a good state; most express worry or alarm about nature in their country.  ​

Concern about nature being in a catastrophic state is highest in Brazil, Malaysia, Mexico, and France, and lowest in China and the UK.​

Public anxiety for the state of nature is nearly universal, suggesting a global agreement on nature would be well received by people in most countries.
