Regarding the May 7 editorial “The deadly threat to biodiversity — and us”:
The United Nations report on biodiversity loss points out that we are destroying habitats across the globe at an astounding rate, which could lead to the extinction of 1 million species, one-eighth of all estimated species on Earth. One statistic in the report is particularly disturbing: Humans have destroyed more than 85 percent of wetlands globally. Wetlands provide vital habitat for wildlife, help filter pollution from our waters, and help buffer the impacts of floods and droughts that are increasing in frequency and severity because of climate change.
