The Sixth Extinction & Setting Conservation Priorities — Homework.
I’m working on a Environmental Science question and need guidance to help me study.
I upload the rubric and the assignment in details…
- Explain how humans are contributing to the loss of biological diversity. Your answer should include multiple factors. You should also discuss how factors can interact and give an example of this.
- Discuss the potential impacts of the loss of biological diversity on society. I.e., why should we be concerned about biodiversity loss?
- Compare the current biological diversity losses to past mass extinctions in terms of causes and rates.
- Give your recommendation for a new conservation project (Use one of the potential projects discussed in class. Your choice can be different from your group’s recommendation if you think another project is better). Include the criteria used to make the decision so donors know why they should support this particular project.
Your letter should be no more than ~one page in length. See rubric for grading criteria.
