Our world is a cradle of life, beauty and diversity. Scientists have estimated that there are around 8.7 million species of plants and animals currently in existence. However, only around 1.2 million species have been identified and described so far. This means that millions of other organisms remain a complete mystery.
The estimate is that in a given year, the world loses anywhere between 1,000 to 30,000 species. That rate of extinction is driven in large part by our stewardship of our planet.
(r)evolutions is a fanciful depiction of that lost biodiversity. How we choose to treat our world does have ramifications.
