Earth’s Biodiversity Is In Danger of Collapse
Earth’s biodiversity is in danger of collapse. According to the campaign for nature, “The natural world is disappearing at an unprecedented rate. The loss of nature poses a grave threat to our clean air and drinking water, the survival of wildlife, the prosperity of communities, and nature’s ability to protect us from natural disasters, future pandemics, and other intensifying impacts of climate change. The twin crises of climate change and the rapid loss of biodiversity threaten the very existence of humanity on Earth.
The Campaign for Nature is a partnership of the Wyss Campaign for Nature and the National Geographic Society. It works with partners worldwide to champion the ambitious, science-driven, global goal to protect at least 30% of the planet by 2030, a target to be agreed on at the 15th Conference on the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in 2022.
Specifically, the Campaign for Nature is calling on world leaders to: help mobilize financial resources to ensure protected areas are properly managed and approach biodiversity conservation in a way that fully integrates and respects Indigenous leadership and Indigenous rights.
On this episode we are joined by Brian O’Donnell. Brian is the executive director of The Campaign For Nature. For more than two decades, Brian has been a leading land and wildlife conservationist. He helped build international support for a global target of protecting at least 30% of the earth’s
land and seas by 2030. Brian helped organize a High Ambition Coalition of more than 95 countries
to support the campaign’s goals. Today we will be talking about this ambitious worldwide effort to protect 30% of the earth’s biodiversity by the year 2030. The Campaign For Nature is at the forefront of advocating for this ambitious effort because they recognize that the earth’s biodiversity is in danger of collapse.
