Our world is home to a magnificent variety of plants and animals and cultures and languages. But (in)human activity has increased the species extinction rate to 10,000 times the historically normal rate, and of the planet’s 7,000 languages, most are predicted to go silent in the next century. This is the biocultural extinction crisis – the converging losses of biodiversity and cultural diversity that will forever change our world unless we act now.
