BIODIVERSITY

“The current rate of species extinction is at least 100 times greater than the expected natural rate.” [1]

WHY SHOULD I BE CONCERNED ABOUT THE
LOSS OF SPECIES?

The process of extinction is a natural process that predates humans by eons. Normally, this process occurs as part of a cycle which also includes the creation of new species (called speciation) at equal rates to extinction. Unfortunately, because of man-induced environmental changes, extinctions are now occurring at a much higher rate than speciation. This is of great concern because we are

now seeing whole ecosystems collapse, with repercussions that could jeopardize our own survival. A diversity of plants and animals is essential to a sustainable ecosystem and provides us with food and life-saving medicines. This month, CharitySub focuses on sustainable biodiversity and the revival of some of the species most at risk for extinction.[2]
