Ecocriticism unveils the complex tapestry of human responses to the decline of biodiversity and environmental instability, inspiring narratives of resilience, conservation, and reconnection with the natural world. Through literature, art, and discourse, this cultural evolution prompts introspection and action, fostering a deeper understanding of our interconnectedness with all life forms and the urgent need for collective stewardship of our planet.
