Biodiversity For Malaysia: Biodiversity Loss Is Our Loss

The International Day for Biological Diversity is taking place later this month, and the theme for this year is “Building a shared future for all life.” Much like our ongoing series, Biodiversity For Malaysia, the theme was chosen to continue building momentum and support for the post-2020 global biodiversity framework to be adopted at the upcoming UN Biodiversity Conference #COP15. So in this month's episode, we want to tackle the real impacts of biodiversity loss on communities, and discuss how changes in ecosystem services affect livelihoods, income, migration and more. Joining us for this discussion are Julian Hyde (General Manager, Reef Check Malaysia), Dr Jillian Ooi (Marine Ecologist & Senior Lecturer, Universiti Malaya), and Affendi Yang Amri (Coral Reef Ecologist, Universiti Malaya & President of the Malaysian Society of Marine Sciences).
