A general public educated about the severity of the problem that is the loss of biodiversity is one far more likely to act with the urgency necessary to make solving the problem a reality. A greater level of public awareness should correspond to a greater level of combative action against biodiversity loss. In order for a broad education to be successful, countries, governmental organizations, private companies, universities, schools and individuals must be aware of the dangers of the global decline in biodiversity. If the concerns of each of these factions are not taken into account when suggesting solutions, the solutions may not be widely implemented.
This section outlines the current state of biodiversity awareness education and suggests both conventional and novel methods for educating the general public - worldwide - about the global biodiversity crisis.
