Biodiversity is a vital issue to us all as to the United Nations the disappearance of both fauna and floral species costs six percent of the world GDP, or more than $3,100 billion (2,000 billion euros) per year.
The Mother Nature Network published recently a splendid infographic with the Top 20 countries with most endangered species. The list is as impressive as it is truly scary.
This is another issue to be tackled fast as even if “only” 900 species disappeared over five centuries, we are currently on the verge of losing 10,000 in a short period of time.
The list features many South-American (Ecuador, Mexico…) and Asian (Malaysia, Indonesia…) nations but also the United States.
