Where did all the critters go?
I've written several blog posts earlier this year about the continuing loss of Earth's biodiversity. Not a happy subject. Yet, as with all issues, changing people's minds, hearts, and public policy begins with factual information sharing and a collective understanding of a problem. Whether it's large, charismatic mammals, songbirds, pollinators, or any other group of animals and plants, impoverishment of the planet's life affects most every ecosystem and ultimately everyone. This large meta-analysis provides a broad-brush view of the biodiversity crisis across taxa and geography over the past 50 years.
As always, feel free to share this post with others. Thanks.
