It’s no secret the world’s wildlife is in dire straits. New data shows a heatwave in the Pacific Northwest killed more than 1 billion sea creatures in June, while Australia’s devastating bushfires of 2019-2020 killed or displaced 3 billion animals. Indeed, 1 million species face extinction worldwide.

These numbers are overwhelming, but a serious global commitment can help reverse current tragic rates of biodiversity loss.

This week the UN’s Convention on Biological Diversity released a draft of its newest ten-year global plan. Often considered to be the Paris Agreement of biodiversity, the new plan aims to galvanise planetary scale action to achieve a world “living in harmony with nature” by 2050.

But if the plan goes ahead in its current form, it will fall short in safeguarding the wonder of our natural world. This is primarily because it doesn’t legally bind nations to it, risking the same mistakes made by the last ten-year plan, which didn’t stop biodiversity decline.
Repeating mistakes: why the plan to protect the world’s wildlife falls short

"HEDGEHOGS DO NOT ROAM ABOUT IN HEAVY RAIN"

Yeah, right.. 🤣
We beg to differ... provide them with a delicious meal, a dry and safe place to enjoy it and the company of a trusted friend looking after them - they´ll come RUNNING❕ 🦔🤎

This nonchalant #sparrow didn't even bother to spread its wings until the last moment as it jumped from the fence onto a feeding table.

I have a limited knowledge of bird species and so could someone identify which type this fellow is?
