What can I do?

If you are concerned about the Mass Extinction Event we are undergoing, here are some things you can do to take action:

Do anything you can to slow down the acceleration of manmade global warming that is causing climate disruption, because climate change causes tree diseases and many other stresses to nature. Wildlife charities say climate change is the biggest threat to biodiversity.

Support the World Wildlife Fund by adopting an endangered animal

Support the campaign to make Ecocide the 5th international crime against peace.

Protect the rainforests, rich habitats for biodiversity which are being destroyed at a frightening rate. You can shop the frog (look out for Rainforest Certified products) and avoid buying palm products, unsustainable wood and paper.

Protect your local green spaces which might be sold for development or landscaped in a way that doesn’t help wildlife

Work to restore wild plants and habitats in even the smallest spaces such as your windowsills, or sow wildflower seeds in verges or cracks

Be a citizen scientist. Count birds for the RSPB or take part in the BBC’s Autumnwatch or Springwatch. Download and use apps that give you quests to collect data about biodiversity. For example, Project Noah.

Volunteer to work on conservation projects with BCTV, wildlife trusts, National Trust and many others
