Engaging People in Biodiversity Issues
Author(s): Bristol Natural History Consortium, Simon Christmas
The alarming rate and scale of biodiversity loss is no secret. Or at least it shouldn’t be. Yet it sometimes feels that no matter how hard we try to explain, repackage, or illuminate the problem – that the variety of life on earth is in dramatic decline – the message just doesn’t seem to stick. So what can we do differently? We need to rethink how we talk about the variety of life on earth, the threats to it, and the consequences of its loss. We must not assume that we are projecting our messages into a vacuum, but work with, rather than against, the existing stories that people hear and tell about the natural world and our relationship with it.
