Sir David Attenborough looks at the science of extinction and what can be done to stop it on BBC1 at 8pm on Sunday 13 September 2020.
Biodiversity is vital to the health and wellbeing of everyone on the planet - and in this documentary, Sir David urges us all to take action to stop the decline of aniamls and their habitats.
Species have come and gone before, of course, but never at this incredibly terrifying rate.
Everything on earth is connected - and in 2019, a UN report pinpointed hte key drivers of biodiversity loss, and they included overfishing, climate change and pollution.
But the biggest force behing biodiversity loss is the destruction of natural habitats - 75% of earth's land surface has been changed by people.
Much this change is for agriculture - but it's also what we buy in the supermarket. Ethical Consumer has some helpful guidelines to help you make changes to make a difference.
