is it partly because we have such a high percentage of enendemic species that we hiave high extinction rates

How can we best engage with Australian and State Governments to get the message across?

Question for Corey: what are the specific implications for loss of biodiversity for healthcare, e.g. medicines? I have heard that 50% of new medicines come from the natural world...

Agree - the EPBC Act is already poorly enforced... making it weaker would be awful.

In Australia, things are indeed on the way down, as in much of the world. Are there examples of geographic areas where the loss of biodiversity has been successfully turned around? (How's Europe doing?)

Corey's twitter feed is @conservbytes if anyone is looking for it. :-)

Wasn’t the original plan for a draft report to be released for public comment? Has that idea been shelved?
katherinebarraclough
32:54
Sorry, you are right Peter - it will be a draft report released in June and there will be a chance to comment after that

Question for Corey, I realise straying into human health…what are the pathways between human wellbeing and biodiversity? Does increasing access to biodiverse spaces improve human wellbeing? (Jess on Tom’s computer)

But if you look at the change of the area of a rectangle, change in either the length or the breadth can account for most, or even all, of the change. Over the next few decades, consumption per person will increase far more than pop. increase.

It is interesting to look at population issues from a women's health point of view - in many countries poverty, teenage-marriages of girls, lack of access to contraception, etc. correlate with family size. Often women in those situations don't really want lots of children. So addressing population growth from that perspective is less controversial. (i.e. helping those communities develop better access to health services and education for women).

Loven’ it. At LAST someone is calling out the door problem: population. Well done!

Thank you for a very insightful presentation. Much appreciated.

I support the measures Corey mentions but there’s nothing we can do about population size in the time available to get on top of CO2.
