[Extract] In their report "Financial Costs of Meeting global biodiversity conservation targets: Current spending and unmet needs" (16 November, p. 946), D. P. McCarthy et al. estimate the financial costs required for conservation of terrestrial species as US$76.1 billion annually. They highlight the need for increased spending while noting that these costs are small relative to the value provided by biodiversity. However, when budgeting current and future funds, we should factor in necessary changes to our conservation approach.
