Through twitter just reblogged this story from The Earth University , Columbia University. The suggestions are focused on the US....but the part I wanted to speak to was this
"Biodiversity—the variety of all living organisms including ecosystems, plants, animals, their habitats and genes—is fundamental to life on Earth. We need biodiversity for its invaluable ecosystem services, providing oxygen, food, clean water, fertile soil, medicines, shelter, protection from storms and floods, a stable climate and recreation. Tragically, today biodiversity is disappearing at 1,000 times the normal rate due to human civilization. Individual species are being obliterated by habitat loss and degradation, invasive species, the spread of pollution and disease, climate change and the over exploitation of resources. And because the human population, which has doubled since 1970, is expected to reach 9 billion by 2050, the biodiversity crisis will only get worse as more people consume more resources."
There's plenty we can do wherever we are... Im keen to hear from anyone with projects they are involved in to post here... specifically in relation to seeds and biodiversity... so drop me a line or leave a comment if you have something to share!!!!
