Features Amed Jkoghlaf, Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity. He defines biodiversity. The loss or degradation of biodiversity, now occurring at an unprecedented pace at local and global levels is a threat to our environment, economies, cultures and societies. It is changing our conception of ourselves and our place in the world. Human impact on biodiversity, ecosystems and climate continues to grow and the complexity and diversity of the range of services that flow from biodiversity are often unknown and undervalued.
Global warming is killing polar bears. As their sea-ice habitat disappears, bears are drowning, starving to death, and in some desperate cases, even eating each other.
It doesn't have to be this way. With your help, the Center for Biological Diversity can educate and inspire 100 million people to take action to save polar bears.
In 2010 the Center won the Top Ten Award for our polar bear public service television ad, reaching a record 90 million people. This year we have a powerful new ad, and we need your help to inform 100 million people about the polar bear's plight.
Help us get the message out while polar bears still have a chance.
