Our Broken Planet: We Need to Talk About Extinction

27th May @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Nature is declining globally at an unprecedented rate. The primary driver of extinction is human land-use change, over half of which is to make way for agriculture.

Over one million plant and animal species are predicted to face extinction in the coming decades – however, most extinctions seem to go unnoticed by many of us. In this event, discover the importance of museum collections in understanding and preventing the extinction of organisms that form the bedrock of our ecosystems, and why it should matter to us all.
