The loss of biodiversity around the world is every bit the existential threat to humankind that the closely related challenge of climate breakdown is. Last month, a global campaign was launched calling on a massive programme of investment ($500 billion) in community led action to avert further biodiversity loss. Timed to coincide with the UN summit on biodiversity, an open letter was sent to the UN Director General signed by 150 conservation groups from around the planet (22 from Scotland). David Attenborough has fronted a short video to launch the campaign.
