The game is a fantastic metaphor for understanding how extinctions cause ecosystems to become more fragile.
Unless we know what is in the ocean, we can’t protect the biggest part of the planet.
Cod could become locally extinct in the southern gulf of St. Lawrence. One solution is to cull the grey seals that feed on the floundering stock.
Kenya can save its roan population if it re-stocks from other countries, eliminates poaching and improves their habitat.

Indigenous land stewardship, resource extraction and corporate interests remain critical issues to addressing large-scale environmental concerns such as pollinator loss in Canada and beyond.
Information collected from DNA samples can be used to identify species, track their movements and diagnose genetic diseases. This information is useful in conservation and management projects.
A new study revealed that indigenous territories store more than half the carbon in the Amazon forest.
The main food for the mountain pygmy-possum’s spring/summer breeding season is the migratory bogong moth, but in 2017 and 2018 billions of bogong moths failed to arrive. Then the bushfires did.
Soil and water conservation projects can create fertile farmlands and change migration patterns linked to land degradation in Burkina Faso.
The destruction of recent fires is challenging our belief that with enough time, love and money, every threatened species can be saved. But there is plenty we can, and must, now do.
Evidence shows Native Americans in New England lived lightly on the land for thousands of years. It wasn't until Europeans arrived that the landscape experienced major human impacts.
It's been a deadly summer for Australia's wildlife. But beyond the fires, we need to act now to protect bats -- which make up a quarter of Australian mammal species -- from a silent overseas killer.
Australia's only sea lion species is endangered and continues to decline. A new non-invasive monitoring technique could help to identify the causes and better inform conservation strategies.
While Hail Mary conservation efforts can pull birds back from the brink, an extinction wave still looms.
As well as a stark warning about climate change, the disaster underlines the importance of wildlife monitoring.
Surveys are likely to have missed multiple groups and individuals due to differences in survey techniques.
In a matter of weeks, the fires have subverted decades of dedicated conservation efforts for many threatened species.
Building connections and grassroots efforts will sustain conservation over the long term.
