    ENDANGERED 13: A Mural project to raise awareness of endangered species See full article on http://www.humannatureshow.com/endangered13/ 13 artists take on a 120 metre stretch of railway arches in Tower Hamlets, London According to the International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN) there are currently 23,250 species listed as threatened. This means: critically endangered, endangered or vulnerable. Adding extinct and extinct in the wild species the figure is 24,153. It’s widely predicted that as many as two-thirds of all species could be near extinction by the end of this century. But, some are now rising in population due to increasing concern about the extinction crisis. Co-ordinated conservation efforts include the protection of natural habitats and prevention of destructive practices such as illegal hunting. The project is being made possible with the support of Montana Cans, The Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, Kabloom, Handover and Earthborn. The permanent home of ENDANGERED13 will be on Ackroyd Drive at Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, over 30 acres of woodland in the heart of East London. Opened in 1841, The City of London and Tower Hamlets Cemetery is now a designated park, Local Nature Reserve and Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation. It is run by our project partners, The Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park. Get your hands dirty and join their local conservation work. ENDANGERED 13 was completed on Sunday 10th April and available to view ongoing at Ackroyd Drive, Tower Hamlets, London Produced by Louis Masai and Human Nature www.humannatureshow.com Read Less
    Published:
Bees Otherwise known as: Too many to list. There are 250 species of Bee in the UK alone!
Status: Endangered
Estimated number (UK): Unknown
Population trend: Decreasing
In recent winters, in Europe alone, bee losses of up to 53% became a reality.
Location: Worldwide
 
Why are they under threat?
The overuse of pesticides and insecticides for farming has caused many bees to, simply, die. Rapid urbanisation and diminishing green spaces in cities has left very few pollinator ‘corridors’ down which bees can travel, pollinate and multiply.
 
What can you do?
There are many things you can do to help save the bees. Plant bee friendly plants and seeds using Kabloom seedboms for a start, create natural habitat gardens, make a bee house and sign petitions banning insecticides and pesticides.
