About, Bylaws, Other Information

A group dedicated to sharing knowledge of the Earth's vast ecosystems and diverse habitats.

Contributions encourage a respectful acknowledgement of nature and bolster our capability to preserve the planet's most treasured assets for the generations to come by highlighting the benefits of biodiversity and issues facing conservation.

In many cases, declining biodiversity and eradication of native habitat is directly linked to the impact of human activity on the environment.

Acceleration in the extinction of species in the past 50 years overshadows the tremendous advancements in science and technology and draws attention to the need to improve our understanding of interconnected ecosystems and the environment in which we live.

Sustainable human accommodation on the Earth requires universal understanding of our reliance on the health of the planet and links local events to global outcomes.

Conservation faces diverse and complex challenges. The context, magnitude and contributing factors quite often can't be identified through a singularly focused lens. Topics of interest indentified (but not restricted to) as follows:
