Nigel Willby
Beavers are renowned for their engineering skills, like dam building, and are now being considered as tools for restoring wetlands. They have been reintroduced widely, including in Scotland, partly for this purpose and our findings demonstrate the surprisingly large benefits they can bring to biodiversity.feedback

Enrique Pena Nieto

Mexico understands its responsibility as one of the countries with greatest biodiversity. That is why we have implemented an historic effort to avoid the extinction of a unique species in the world and also to protect important ecosystems.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

It is a very sad day when the president of the US is trying to get off the bus that has taken so long for all of us to persuade others to get on. So I will give him that Yorkshire tea. I will persuade him the very best I can. I am very keen we will do everything we can not just to protect but to enhance biodiversity. We will not be promoting GM crops. We will not be polluting groundwater.feedback

Lyndon Schneiders

Ending land clearing would be a fast, cheap and effective way to cut Australia's greenhouse gas emissions as well as critical in protecting wildlife and biodiversity.feedback

Adam Bohdan

You can see how many trees they are cutting down that don't even have bark, and so can't be vulnerable to the bark beetle. They are also clearing away dead and decaying trees that are crucial for the forest's biodiversity and natural processes, including tree regeneration – they just see it as a waste of valuable wood.feedback

Josh Frydenberg

It's a very complicated step, and in fact it's indeed a two-step process to remove the great white sharks from the [Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation] Act, and it will take some time and it would need to be based on scientific evidence. Any change to the listing of great white sharks would need to be based on scientific evidence. It would not be appropriate to preempt the process which involves the CSIRO studying numbers and any recommendations by the independent scientific committee.feedback

Matthew Engel

What it means is this incredible loss of biodiversity. At a time when Britain's identity as a nation is in doubt, is under discussion, we have to ask ourselves: is this what we really want?feedback

Wayne Linklater

It's a fantasy science fiction. And it really is seriously distracting us from some really big changes and improvements we can make in biodiversity and the environment now.feedback

James Thornton

We are facing some very challenging times over issues such as air quality, marine protection and loss of biodiversity. We should take nothing that the government does for granted.feedback

Neil Evans

We want to ensure that dogs, when they are awaiting adoption, have as good an experience as they can. Our research indicates that dogs show more relaxed behaviour and have a significantly higher Heart Rate Variability (HRV) which is indicative of decreased stress, when a variety of genres of music is played in the shelter, the biggest effects being seen with soft rock and reggae and lesser effects when Motown, pop and classical music are played.feedback

Neil Evans

We want to ensure that dogs, when they are awaiting adoption, have as good an experience as they can. Most people adopting from a shelter want a dog that is relaxed and interacts positively. Music can help dogs become less stressed and show their true personality.feedback

Jordan Traverso - California Department of Fish and Wildlife

We have incredible biodiversity here in California. We just don't know what the impacts are.feedback

Joseph Simcox

My seeds are my kitchen table. My seeds are my way of sharing food with people all over the world.feedback

David Attenborough

I am immensely pleased to hear that plans to build a bridge at Sukau have been cancelled. This region is recognised worldwide as being a vital enclave for threatened wildlife, and it is indeed good news that the safe passage of orangutans, pygmy elephants and other endangered wildlife will not be threatened by the bridge and all that would have come with it. The decision will [also benefit] the local people who welcome visitors who come to see the wonderful biodiversity of their forests.feedback

Jo Preston

The biodiversity associated with the native oyster is far greater than that associated with the slipper limpet. It's also brilliant for other fisheries as it becomes a refuge for juvenile fish and lots of other things grow on top of oysters.feedback

Fabiano Melo

The virus is spreading like a wave, very fast and in all directions. These primates are particularly sensitive and are dying quickly. We are destroying our biodiversity because of a disease we can control.feedback

Walter Mzembi

(Our biodiversity) has been kept largely authentic, original and undisturbed with very sound conservation models that have become models for the region. I dream big, and I don't think I dream impractical. My dream for the World Cup is based on integration of strength and effort that are neighbours to Zimbabwe, like South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique and Zambia. Nothing is impossible. The current administration is too preoccupied with the self. Too inward-looking and nationalistic, to the point where they are indifferent to anything happening elsewhere.feedback

Walter Mzembi

Our chief product in Zimbabwe is peace and stability. It doesn't matter where the location of a wonder of the world, if it is in a conflict zone nobody will visit. Zimbabwe has a 34-year record where not one tourist life has been lost due to conflict. I say that because it is important to assure the travelling public that when they visit your country they are safe. [Our biodiversity] has been kept largely authentic, original and undisturbed with very sound conservation models that have become models for the region.feedback

Michelle Bachelet

This is a key step to treasuring this giant source of biodiversity and safe keep it in the public interest.feedback

Paul Simon

Half-Earth is compulsory reading if we care about the lives of our children, our children's children and all of the species alive today. I can give all the profits to [Wilson]. And that will make me feel that I am making a greater contribution than putting more money in my pocket, which I don't need, or becoming more famous, which I really don't need. It's a concert of music … I don't want people to come and think they're going to be lectured to. But I don't mind having Ed's book available or having [Half-Earth] caps there.feedback

José Iriarte

Perhaps, the very biodiversity we want to preserve is not only due to thousands of years of natural evolution but also the result of the human footprint. The more we learn, the more the evidence points to the latter.feedback

Andre Chiaradia

What makes this biodiversity? It's the isolation. On land, we have kangaroos and weird animals like the platypus. And in the ocean it's not different.feedback

Regina Lopez

It's really unfair. I'll be so blatant to say the Philippines is unfit for mining. Because we're an island ecosystem with biodiversity and endemicity like no other. They're killing our rivers, our streams, they're mining in watersheds, That's against the mining law.feedback

Regina Lopez

Every time you put up an open pit and every time you put up a tailing pond you're putting our country at risk. It's really unfair. I'll be so blatant to say the Philippines is unfit for mining. Because we're an island ecosystem with biodiversity and endemicity like no other. If it is closure, I can then heal the land. It is closure because there is no way you can have any kind of mining in watershed areas.feedback

Anu Mohammad

This will have a devastating and irreversible impact on the Sundarbans, its ecology and biodiversity.feedback

Neema Pathak Broome

(The law) has the potential to conserve forests and biodiversity (and) improve local livelihoods. Unfortunately, due to a lack of political will and intentional efforts to undermine the law, this vast potential for democratic forest governance remains unrealised.feedback

Dan Isaak

It's kind of the Holy Grail for biologists to know what a true biodiversity map looks like. To have that formatted digitally so you can do lots of science with it will be transformative in terms of the quality of information we'll have to conserve species.feedback

Alberto Orgiazzi

Reading DNA sequences extracted from soil we are able to understand to what living organisms that soil is linked, and we can accurately identify what those organisms are. This way we can characterize biodiversity.feedback

Charlotte Streck - Climate Focus

What we really want is to stop (gross) natural forest loss because of biodiversity and other important reasons.feedback

John Kerry

The Ross Sea region MPA will safeguard one of the last unspoiled ocean wilderness areas on the planet – home to unparalleled marine biodiversity and thriving communities of penguins, seals, whales, seabirds and fish.feedback

John Kerry

The Ross Sea Region marine protected area (MPA) will safeguard one of the last unspoiled ocean wilderness areas on the planet -- home to unparalleled marine biodiversity and thriving communities of penguins, seals, whales, seabirds, and fish.feedback

John Kerry

It happened because our nations understood the responsibility we share to protect this unique place for future generations. The Ross Sea region marine protected area will safeguard one of the last unspoiled ocean wilderness areas on the planet – home to unparalleled marine biodiversity and thriving communities of penguins, seals, whales, seabirds, and fish.feedback

Randall Kosaki

They are very significant contributions to global biodiversity.feedback

James Watson - BusinessEurope

Globally important wilderness areas are completely ignored in environmental policy, despite being strongholds for endangered biodiversity, for buffering and regulating local climates, and for supporting many of the world's most politically and economically marginalized communities.feedback

James Watson - BusinessEurope

This is incredibly sad because we can't offset or restore these places. Once they are gone, they are gone, and this has shocking implications for biodiversity, for climate change and for the most imperiled biodiversity on the planet.feedback

Tim Newbold

If we keep degrading biodiversity there will be a point where it's very difficult to support agriculture. Given the stakes it's best to be precautionary.feedback

Marine Antonopoulou

The species we are working on in this project are green turtles which are associated with sea grass habitat. And this habitat is not only important for marine turtles but also for marine life in general. And what we want to do by using marine turtles is to identify important areas for biodiversity that can be conserved for the whole marine ecosystem.feedback

Marco Lambertini - World Wide Fund for Nature

The recovery of the panda shows that when science, political will, and the engagement of local communities come together, we can save wildlife and also improve biodiversity.feedback

Nicolas Dupont

The questions we ask are philosophical, but are nevertheless accessible to everyone since they are questions which every individual, every society asks itself. Where does life come from? What are the origins of mankind? What are the origins of the universe and what is the place of mankind in this biodiversity? The organisation of societies, man and death… these questions are asked in each exhibition.feedback

Jenica Hanganu

We can later on use this data to improve our strategies for taking measures against flood risks, biodiversity losses or changes in the ecosystems.feedback

Iulian Michersu

The Danube has now many dams and dikes. That means that the Delta is narrower and the river is getting deeper, and that affects the biodiversity of the whole area. Oaks that used to grow on the shores are retreating, because the river flow is becoming much more vertical than horizontal and it offers less ground.feedback

Andre Muggiati - Greenpeace

Rising global temperatures will have a significant impact on the Amazon rainforest's structure, on its biodiversity. Some scientists estimate that large portions of the Amazon will no longer be a dense rainforest like they are now.feedback

Jacques Rougerie

There is everything to explore and discover under the sea. Most simply we have to understand the biodiversity of our seas, migration patterns, and the food of the future, the pharmacology of the future, and all the energy that we can harness, the renewable energy from the oceans that we can use, it's the blue economy of tomorrow.feedback
