Saving the World's Terrestrial Megafauna

Saving the World's Terrestrial Megafauna

Back in June last year, a group of 40 scientists banded together and co-authored a scientific paper for the Oxford Journal, BioScience, which painted a grim picture of the future of the planet’s megafauna. In essence, if we continued on the same trajectory that we are currently on, massive species extinction would occur, with dire consequences for us all. One of the co-authors of that paper, Dr. Ahimsa Campos-Arceiz, who is also the Principal investigator at the Management & Ecology of Malaysian Elephants (MEME), joins us to discuss this imminent extinction crisis, and to highlight the steps that need to be taken to stop this.
