Why biodiversity loss?

Biodiversity – the variety of plants, animals and microorganisms – provides us with clean air and water; produces all of our food; makes the raw materials for our clothing and medicines. Biodiversity also represents the only assortment of life known in the universe, and this web of life being decimated under our watch. We cannot mitigate climate change without halting the extinction of species: the two are interwoven. We need to show ingenuity in working with nature, and initiative in working for nature, for our ecosystems to survive and for us to be effective in taking climate action.
