The relationship between our planet’s vanishing species, languages, and cultures has long fascinated me, so I was thrilled to write a story on the subject for the current issue of Seed.

In the piece, my co-author Terry Glavin and I mention some important legislation being put forth at the annual meeting of the IUCN in Barcelona, Spain. Now that I look at my calendar, I realize the meeting’s just now wrapping up … and it looks like there is some amazing web coverage of the 10-day event.

I haven’t yet figured out whether the resolution was adopted or not … bonus to anyone who can beat me to the answer.
