|Are species risks overblown?
The trends, documented by careful research in the sea and in the wild, are overwhelming. If anything, species and habitat risks are greatly underestimated
Can plentiful species easily survive?
They can, but even they need help. A population of billions of beautiful birds were exploited to extinction in 1914, in less than three decades. Our ancestors had the excuse of lack of knowledge— we don't. All species are vulnerable.
Why is this the moment to act?
2014 is the centennial year of the "impossible" extinction of the last Passenger Pigeon, in Cincinnati. It's a once-in-a-generation opportunity to present a powerful, little-known species story to a wide audience.
A special film to seize the day
The film, From Billions to None, will have the power to move minds. It will be the srongest element in the 2014 effort to galvanize awareness of human-caused species declines.
