Nature's backbone at risk
Date:10/26/2010

ng the livelihoods of millions of people dependent on these vital resources at risk.

Failure to meet the internationally agreed 2010 target to reduce biodiversity loss does not mean that conservation efforts have been in vain, as this study demonstrates. However, the erosion of biodiversity has reached such dangerous levels that we cannot afford to fail again. Ambitious targets are needed for 2020, and to meet them will require urgent and concerted action on a greatly expanded scale. It is time for the world's Governments, meeting in Nagoya, to rise effectively to this global challenge.

"We know what has to be done to save individual species from extinction," said Alison Stattersfield, BirdLife's Head of Science and one of the authors on the paper. "Through BirdLife's Preventing Extinctions Programme we are taking effective and cost-effective - action for the world's Critically Endangered birds. But much more effort is needed, through NGOs, Governments, businesses and committed individuals working together, to stop the slide towards extinction and start to address the root causes of biodiversity loss."

"This study testifies to the transformative power of conservation", said Dr Sara Oldfield, Secretary General of Botanic Gardens Conservation International, "It shows that if we can emerge from Nagoya with a clear conservation strategy and the resources to secure the future of the world's plants, we can radically improve the status of this group of species that has such tremendous cultural and economic importance for society."

"The critical point from our analysis is the role that conservation plays in slowing species losses. That means we can do something about this global problem by taking concerted action at local national and regional scales", said Dr Andrew A. Rosenberg, Senior Vice President for Science and Knowledge at Conservation International and an author on th
