Lack of integrated management of biodiversity

Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Other Names:
Undeveloped ecological planning
Unsustainable development of biological resources

The traditional practices of biodiversity management have been weakened over the past few centuries. Examples are the decline of small scale traditional farming methods, mass clearance of land for single purpose uses and the technological overcapacity of modern fishing fleets compared with traditional fishing methods.


Many of the planet's species have already been lost or condemned to extinction because of the slow response times of both the environment and policy makers; with one-quarter of the world's mammal species now at significant risk of total extinction, it is too late to preserve all the biodiversity that our planet once had.
