⚡Why put a Value on Nature?

The Appendix references thousands of sources as to why and how to value nature.

These two quotes ground us in the why:

"Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish been caught, and the last stream poisoned, will we realize we cannot eat money."

- Osage saying, circa 1893

"…by bringing economics and ecology together, we can help save the natural world at what may be the last minute – and in doing so, save ourselves."

- Sir David Attenborough The Dasgupta Review: the Economics of Biodiversity 2021

The RealValue of Natural Capital expresses the value nature in a language everyone understands: dollars.

"BASIN is not financializing nature, we are naturalizing finance." - Jeff Stephens
