Are we nearing a mass extinction? At least 15 thousand scientists think so. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), 28% of species are threatened by extinction. However, due to lack of resources, the IUCN has only been able to fully research 5% of species. This is troubling because from the little we know, the loss of one species could lead to serious consequences for human beings such as reduced food and oxygen.
We’re the ones causing this loss of species variety or biodiversity. According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the greatest threat to species is habitat loss, followed by overfishing, invasive species, pollution, climate change and poaching.
To counter this variety of threats, we contribute to a range of data-driven and locally led activities in some of the world’s most biodiverse locations. These include more nature-centric activities such as biodiversity surveys and habitat restoration to more human-centric activities such as education and professional development.
