How does ecological grief differ from other types of grief?
"Ecological grief is a very different form of grieving in some ways because many people have described it as a grief without end. Right now we're living in such a chaotic world of loss. Some people have identified it as the sixth mass extinction. We know there's climate change, there's biodiversity loss, weather shifts and things that impact us on a daily basis, but also things that are going to impact our planet and the health and well-being of many species moving forward. In some ways its very similar to other forms of grief because it can be very isolating and debilitating, but simultaneously it can also be something where we find comfort in others and in community. Another important difference about ecological grief is we don't have rituals to celebrate passing or death of more than humans in the same way that we do with humans."
Like funerals and other kinds of things?
"Yeah, we don't have those similar moments where we mark a loss or a passing and where a community comes together to support the people who have lost."
