When we talk about biodiversity, we’re talking about all living things – the plants, animals, bacteria, fungi and other species that share this world with us. However, exploitation, development, pollution, climate change and a range of other human activities have put us on the precipice of a mass extinction, with a quarter of the world’s mammals, 13 percent of its birds and 40 percent of amphibians already threatened to be wiped out, not to mention the many more forms of life not listed in these categories. Below are the best articles from Landscape News in 2022 that explore biodiversity, where it stands today and what’s being done to protect the future.
