Event details

One Planet Week event

Concerns about biodiversity have resulted in Government commitments to protect 30% of land and sea for nature this decade (so-called ‘30 by 30’ agreed at COP15 in Montreal in December 2022). I will discuss how our research in York’s Leverhulme Centre for Anthropocene Biodiversity is examining how species are shifting their ranges to track climate change, and how we use this information to make recommendations for how to help biodiversity thrive.
