As the climate has heated over the last century, species extinction has rapidly accelerated. From increased forest fires to rising sea levels, flora, fauna and fungi are all under threat from the effects of human-induced climate change.

However, just as the changing climate is causing biodiversity loss, so protecting biodiversity can help us mitigate and adapt to climate change. For example, keeping carbon locked up in peat bogs and seagrasses will slow global heating, and maintaining healthy ecosystems will make them more resilient to climate change.

Join a panel of experts as they discuss the effects the changing climate has had on the world’s species, and how we can protect biodiversity in the face of this global challenge.
