Biodiversity, the importance of protecting the right areas

MadagascarTo TreeHugger and Science Daily, protecting a mere 17 percent of the land surfaces against human exploitation would protect two third of the plant species. However, there is a catch as we have to protect the right places…

So if we have to protect the most of our biodiversity, we have to find a way to help developing nations in protecting these natural areas. Financing these efforts by the global community will have to be done. This has failed recently in Ecuador.

But as Treehugger notes,  ” that doesn’t mean the global community can’t and shouldn’t try again. “ Given how biodiversity is crucial to Mankind, it has to be hoped that we will succeed the next times.
