A new global assessment from the UN-mandated Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) was issued today by 150 of the world's leading scientists, painting a grim picture of the state of the planet's lands, ocean, and wildlife. It finds that the loss of nature and the resulting wildlife extinction crisis is worse than previously understood and underscores the urgent need for world leaders to commit to an ambitious global deal to protect nature and, therefore, life on Earth.
