For the past few years, scientists have warned that millions of species around the world are at risk of extinction due to the ongoing climate change crisis. In particular, California is seeing a number of rare and common species that are in danger of being wiped out completely. In efforts to save them before it is too late, a group of researchers, conservation organizations, and botanists have created different kinds of preservation efforts such as seed banks, emergency translocations, and captive breeding programs. Director of Conservation Programs at the California Botanic Garden, Naomi S. Fraga, joined Cheddar to discuss more.
