Her book, Nature is a Human Right (DK, 2022) brings together a collection of original perspectives from the campaign's supporters – scientists, artists, activists, naturalists and writers – relating our right to nature to mental health, medicine, indigeneity, disability, racism, classism, identity, creativity and more.
