SI Tapes: Why biodiversity is so important

In the latest of our SI tapes, our experts explain why it is essential to use investor capital to protect biodiversity.

Why one small spider is so significant for biodiversity

The jumping spider shows how one tiny creature embodies the bigger picture of the need to protect wildlife.

It is found around the world and has several remarkable characteristics. The spider has eight eyes for 360-degree vision, and as its name suggests, it can jump 20 times its own body length.

But by far its best quality is that its main diet is mosquitos. Jumping spiders lower the populations of these pests, working against not just annoying bites, but the spread of malaria.

Yet their populations are declining, due mainly to habitat loss. This shows how the decline of the unsung heroes of biodiversity can affect the quality of life of the very humans who are threatening their existence.
