The video, which is a part of the initiative ‘Nature is Speaking’, was organised by Conservation International (CI) with the tagline: “Nature doesn’t need people. People need nature.”
The campaign is a series of short films in which an abused ecosystem is voiced by a Hollywood actor. In the series, we hear from Mother Nature, Water, the Coral Reef, The Ocean, The Soil, The Rainforest and The Redwood. All have one common message: Nature will go on.
In the video, Julia Roberts voices Mother Nature and is heard explaining why nature doesn’t need people, instead people need nature. “Your actions will determine your fate. I am nature. I am prepared to evolve,” she says.
Another film from the series features Harrison Ford as the Ocean. Edward Norton, Penelope Cruz, Robert Redford and Ian Somerhalder also featured in the videos.

The thought-provoking series of short films aim to show that the natural world is something that people need in order to survive.
