Politics and Conservation
Sifting through headlines on BBC about a year ago, I came across a report stating that about 800 species of plants and animals are under the threatened of extinction, unless something is done soon. And this report came at the wake of the discovery of a new species in Borneo. Most of these species were identified to be from the tropics, the most diversity-rich part of the globe, and in some places, the report said, it would cost less that $1,000 per year to save them. If the cost of saving our wildlife was so low, then how is it that we came to lose so much in the first place? And still losing at a very alarming rate. [Sharmishta Sarkar Goyal]
