The wailing of God’s creatures – Catholic social teaching, human activity, and the collapse of biological diversity is the new report commissioned to the Laudato Si’ Research Institute by CIDSE, CAFOD, and the Global Catholic CIimate Movement, which calls political leaders and decision-makers to give more attention to address this “collapse”.
The report mentions that most of the species extinction is primarily driven by land-use change, overexploitation and overconsumption, invasive species, environmental pollution, and climate change. Creation is no longer able to support any further loss of biodiversity.
As Catholic organizations, we encourage you to deepen your understanding of biodiversity in light of our values and we remind you the urgency of radical ecological conversion.
