Protecting Freshwater Biodiversity

A tiny fraction of our planet’s water—less than one hundredth of one percent—exists as liquid freshwater. But the biodiversity this fraction houses is astonishing. For example, did you know that the southeastern United States is home to more freshwater species than anywhere else in the world?

Corporate Voices

Corporate Voices for Biodiversity Science
One of the most important conservation issues we face, both domestically and internationally, is that, when it comes to making investment and policy decisions, society has been moving away from a science-driven approach. Issues like climate change, quality and quantity of water, and invasive species are all pressing threats to ecosystem services that depend on the diversity of life, and now is not the time to be making blind decisions about the sustainability of our earth’s natural resources.
