Protecting Biodiversity

Researchers from the University of Minnesota and McGill University, writing in Nature, believe that habitat destruction, overhunting, the introduction of nonnative species, and other human activities are seriously decreasing global biodiversity, which could bring on a sixth mass extinction. They also report that all will not be lost if additional investments in protecting species are made. This would not only reduce biodiversity loss but provide economic benefit, as well, e.g., wood from forests, livestock forage from grasslands, and fish from oceans and streams. 

Do you agree that significant investments are needed to protect biodiversity on both the local and global scales?
