516 ARTS and partners presented Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande, an exhibition and series of regional public programs responding to the global biological crisis described in the new UN Report that officially state that nature's dangerous decline is "unprecedented," and species extinction rates are accelerating at an alarming pace. According to a recent New York Times editorial, the report says, "'Biodiversity' " a word encompassing all living flora and fauna " 'is declining faster than at any time in human history,' estimating that 'around 1 million species already face extinction, many within decades,' unless the world takes transformative action to save natural systems."
