Check out our latest e-Dialogue, What is Biodiversity and Why is it Important?, published on Changing the Conversation. Featuring e-panelists from Women for Nature, this conversation is the first of the Biodiversity Conversations: How important are the common loon and polar bears to Canadians? series.
e-Panelists began with a broader discussion on the nature of biodiversity conservation, before moving into more specific issues. They explored the critical relationship between human well-being and biodiversity, focusing on diversity as a general theme, as well as the current state of biodiversity loss in Canada. They discussed why it is imperative for Canada now, looking at the 2016 Living Planet Report, the state of North America’s Birds 2016 and the connection between biodiversity conservation and regenerative sustainability.
