Earth is losing biological diversity at an unprecedented rate. Could this lead to the collapse of Earth’s habitats and ecosystems? What might that mean for humanity? Curator Joel Cracraft presents the evidence, drawing from his experiences in Earth’s tropical forests, and outlines the difficult challenges ahead.

The SciCafe series is proudly sponsored by Judy and Josh Weston.
