Last year a UN report revealed that around one million animal and plant species are threatened with extinction. Featuring some of the world’s leading scientists, Extinction: The Facts goes beyond the emotional to investigate what biodiversity loss and extinction mean – not just for the planet but for us as a species.
Following on from last year’s Climate Change: The Facts, the programme reveals how this crisis has consequences for us all, threatening food and water security, reducing our ability to control our climate and even putting us at greater risk of pandemic diseases. It explores what is happening to the natural world – how human activity drives extinction and why we haven’t acted sooner to stem these losses. With the world at a critical turning point Extinction: The Facts asks what governments, industries and we as individuals can now do to change our course.
Sir David Attenborough says: “Over the course of my life I’ve encountered some of the world’s most remarkable species of animals. Only now do I realise just how lucky I’ve been. Many of these wonders seem set to disappear forever.
“We are facing a crisis and one that has consequences for us all. It threatens our ability to feed ourselves, to control our climate, it even puts us at greater risk of pandemic diseases such as COVID-19.
“It’s never been more important for us to understand the effects of biodiversity loss, of how it is that we ourselves are responsible for it. Only if we do that, will we have any hope of averting disaster.”
