    Here's your answer:
    My answer is Yes
    I said this because all living things rely on each other. Imagine that if a bee got extinct, bee_eater birds won't find their prey and then be extinct too, with bears that eat honey, thus species feeding on those birds or bears will also be extinct. Not just this, but when bee go extinct, flowers and seeds won't be pollenated, then this will alter human food systems and lead to famine. So, all of this would happen if just the bees got extinct, so imagine that we're having a great amount of extincting species which are putting human on the first line of defense battling with hunger. I relied with my info on the website: https://www.britannica.com/story/what-would-happen-if-all-the-bees-died#:~:text=Without%20bees%2C%20they%20would%20set,natural%20systems%20and%20food%20webs.

    My answer is Not sure
    I said this because humans are full of innovations so if they want their safety and to live life on all it’s terms they need to start acting in order to stop this biodiversity and if they’ve found 4 solutions for different problems and also that can be connected with each other then i’m sure and i have faith that biodiversity will oneday be mentioned in history and if there will be biodiversity then why all of us humans and animals are on the same planet? We need to know that we need to live and let live.
    I got an idea of my answer from the topical talk videos with Mr. Tom .

    My answer is Yes
    I said this because Humans change ecosystems. As long as humans are on earth, changing ecosystems, then humans need to be aware of and try to mitigate their impacts. We are currently responsible for decreasing biodiversity on the planet. We are dependent on the ecosystems that we are changing, and if we are not careful, we will make the planet unlivable for ourselves, aside from dragging other species down with us. But they’re also about the part where “life” can exist in conditions far more extreme than “human life” can exist in. Which is to say, we’re killing ourselves, first and foremost.

      These are all very valid points, we as humans are responsible for the future of our planet. Could you think of a few examples of things we can do to prevent our planet from becoming hostile to mankind and all other animals?

    When animals like rhinos get extinct please like rainforests Will lake oxygen because when rhinos eat a fruit and it digest the rhino Will not be able to digest the seeds for the fruit and the rhino will excret the seeds and the seeds will germinate so without them there Will not be enough trees in the rainforest to produce oxygen

    This topic is linked to another topic in Topical Talk which is "World Hunger in Numbers" the link is that World Hunger and starvation one of the biodiversity crisis effects, we discussed there a lot of innovations that were done as measures to limit world hunger like " 3D food printing"
    As biodiversity crisis can be solved just like world hunger, then the other crisis and issues which threaten humans can be solved like climate change for example. A human is full of innovations with his mentality that can solve any problem on the earth, with innovations, the human won't need to leave to another planet. I believe that for this planet to be safe, awareness of the world issues, and everyone's responsibility should be spread everywhere, more innovations should be made up for every single environmental issue, and then OUR PLANET will be enough for us.

    I'm not sure but can not say that the departure of human beings of the Earth will stop the crisis, the human part of the ecosystem and depend on the environment to survive, so must human beings to change the course of their dealings with the environment and mitigate the effects and problems they have committed to meet their needs, and maintain on biological land and to put an end to the various problems, and raise awareness of human beings to be conservatives, not saboteurs .. solution into their own hands

    I said this because I chose this because it is not possible to predict the future over a long period of life and otherwise it is not possible to build hypotheses about life

    + Will the global biodiversity crisis lead to the need for humans to leave the planet? no ; Rather, [Biodiversity is the key to building a sustainable future for all] that is, the COVID-19 crisis has served as a wake-up call to mend the deteriorating human relationship with nature and reaffirmed that biodiversity is fundamental to human health and vital to sustainable development. Declining biodiversity and the threat of future pandemics have many root causes in common: forest degradation and habitat fragmentation are increasingly bringing people and wildlife into contact. More effective biodiversity policies can reduce the risk of future pandemics. Protecting nature and preventing people from coming into contact with untouched parts of the wild will reduce the likelihood of future pandemics.


    On the other hand, my answer is yes; Because humans are responsible for the future of our planet, as long as humans are on this planet, changing ecosystems, humans must be aware of their impacts and try to mitigate them. We are currently responsible for reducing biodiversity on this planet. We depend on the ecosystems that we change, and if we are not careful, we will make the planet uninhabitable! But Since the biodiversity crisis can be solved just like world hunger, other crises and issues that threaten humans can be solved like climate change for example. Man is full of innovations with a mindset that can solve any problem on earth, with innovations man will not need to leave for another planet.

    I don't think that the biodiversity crisis will cause human to leave th planet. I found a link between this question and another one i answered on the healdline of " World Hunger in Numbers" where we had to choose the most effective way of coping with hunger. The Urban Farming is growing crops indoors in vertically stacked layers, this technique allows us to grow as many crops as we can while minimizing the environmental impacts. Another one is, the Online faming communities which allows small business farmers to connect to other farmers in another destinations. Thus, human will find another technological techniques to vrow crops and not be extinct so that they can stay on earth.

    My answer is No
    I said this because us humans have enough technology to start finding ways to try and grow back trees at a huge scale and governments have the power to create punishments for anybody who does start destroying animal habitats.We can stop doing all of this cutting down trees and destroying animal habitat's so it is in our own hands and and I believe these people who do this for a living can stop doing it and move on in their lives.

    I don't think the biodiversity crisis will make people leave the planet. I found that the topic (world hunger in numbers) is similar to this topic, meaning that hunger is one of the causes of biodiversity. We have discussed many of the measures that have been taken to reduce hunger in the world! Since the biodiversity crisis can be solved just like the issue of [world hunger], other crises and issues that threaten human beings can be solved like climate change for example. Man is full of innovations with a mindset that can solve any problem on earth so if they want their safety and live life with all that is required of them to start working towards stopping this biodiversity and if they find 4 solutions to different problems and also that can be related to each other then I am sure and I have faith that diversity Biological will one day be remembered in history and if there is biodiversity, then why all of us humans, with innovations, would not need to leave for another planet. I believe that for this planet to be safe, awareness of the issues of the world must be spread, the responsibility of everyone everywhere, more innovations must be compensated for each environmental issue, then our planet will be enough for us.
