Counting on … day 404

11th December 2022

The Natural History Museum suggests ‘While not everyone can be at the international negotiations in Montreal, there are a variety of steps that everyone can use to find out more about biodiversity loss and how to combat it.

Changing how we live is the most important way everyone can have an impact. Intensive agriculture is one of the most significant causes of biodiversity loss globally, so eating a less intensively farmed diet, including cutting down on meat and dairy, is one way to protect species in the UK and around the world.

Other ways we can live more sustainably include growing insect-friendly plants, mowing the garden less frequently, and reducing the amount of waste we produce.

You can also get involved more directly to make the world a more biodiverse place, such as getting involved in community science projects or calling for change from decision makers.’
