Call for entries
The song of vanishing species
Through intensive agriculture, insecticides, pesticides and monoculture, animal and plant species die out. Bird species disappear, bees die as pollinators, wild plants become less, insects die out, biodiversity decreases. Fewer fruits, vegetables and cereals are cultivated. This type of agriculture is not sustainable.
The singing of vanishing species can not be heard. Species die silently.
On Earth we find 45% less invertebrates than four decades ago. No plant species is superfluous. Species extinction is considered by some experts to be the most pressing issue in sustaining the foundations of our Earth age.
