Are we running
out of time?

Biodiversity is the variety of life in the world or habitat. But this clockdiversity is shrinkng fast as animals and plants are affected by human activity.

Species extinction is now occuring, according to some, at an estimated rate of 160 a day, or about one every nine minutes.

Wholesale species loss, which researchers say is possible, will be devastating to the planet, the natural world, and to the future of human society. Add there may be not much time to reverse the trend.

The Worldwide Conversation



Biodiversity and habitat loss largely due to human activities have driven the planet Earth, the home of all living things including us, on to the brink of irreversible destruction. The current trend of climate change that threatens the livelihood of all living things is another human caused global problem. Biodiversity Conservancy joins the worldwide effort to undertake programs contributing to the preservation of species, habitats, the environment and the life support systems on the planet Earth.
