A Problem of Planetary Proportions

The planet is headed towards a period of extraordinary change: A sixth mass extinction, the first in Earth’s history driven by the actions of a single species — our own. 

Conservation is not succeeding fast enough. Extinction and habitat destruction are increasing exponentially, while our solutions increase incrementally. By focusing on drivers — not symptoms — of extinction, we can eliminate threats to species and dramatically improve the protection and health of ecosystems.
