In recent weeks we’ve all been working hard to ‘flatten the curve’ and stop the spread of Covid-19 – but is there another curve we’re inadvertently flattening at the same time?

Whether it’s a drastic drop in urban pollution or wildlife benefiting from improved access to food, the planet seems to have been getting a well-deserved break.

We examine some of these social-distancing side effects and ask an important question: could this be a lasting change? Thanks for watching and don’t forget to subscribe to be inspired by more topical content about the natural world! #terramatters
