Problem

Biodiversity loss through rapid environmental change

Nature:
Rapid environmental change, such as El Niño events, can also have significant impacts on natural habitats, as can the longer-term effects of climate change, for example reductions in the volumes of water bodies after persistent dry weather. The effect of events such as forest fires can be multiplied many times wherever habitats are already fragmented and species depleted.
