Media coverage of the biodiversity crisis too frequently lends itself to apocalyptic headlines and a sense of hopelessness. In turn, this can cause people to tune out and feel as though nothing can be done to stem nature’s decline. It also shortchanges the countless individuals and institutions successfully working to save species, restore ecosystems and pioneer new conservation models.
BioGraphic – a free, nonprofit, independent, online journal powered by the California Academy of Sciences – delivers high-quality scientific reporting on the most promising conservation solutions from around the world. The BAND Foundation provides funding to bioGraphic to enable expanded coverage and increased reach.
